Yoon Eun Hye Talks about SBS “Running Man”

With recently ended MBC drama “I Miss You,” Yoon Eun Hye played the role of Lee Soo Yeon, a woman with trauma who reunites with her first love after 14 years. Many fans and critics praised Yoon Eun Hye for expanding her acting spectrum and becoming a true actress with “I Miss You.” 

While many now recognize her as an actress, a lot of people also remember her as the youngest member of Baby V.O.X and Kim Jong Kook‘s love interest Yoon Eun Hye from SBS “X-Man.” Her name gets mentioned in SBS “Running Man,” where Kim Jong Kook is starring. Although this might cause some kind of uneasy, awkward feelings, Yoon Eun Hye seemed not to bother much.

She said, “The fact that it is still talked about today makes me realize how much of a big issue it was back then. At the time, I was the youngest member of the cast. Although I’m not really good at keeping in touch with all of them and staying close, I think they still see me as this cute maknae and therefore, talk about my time on ‘X-man’ rather comfortably.”

When asked whether she likes of dislikes it, Yoon Eun Hye responded jokingly, “It’s not a ‘I like it’ or ‘I hate it’ kind of feeling I have. But I’ve thought that maybe I should get paid? Every time they use a photo of me or my name is mentioned?” Perhaps since she is still working on establishing herself as an actress, she might be a little bit hesitant to make an appearance on a variety TV show and have people remember her as the lighthearted, fun variety character.

Yoon Eun Hye commented on her possible future appearance on “Running Man,” “I think it is a really good program, but I don’t have a good excuse to be on the show yet. Perhaps when I start a new drama or movie, I think that’s a good time to make an appearance. Also, when I’m on the show, I’m a little worried and intimidated that everybody is going to push for the romantic ‘love line’ between me and Kim Jong Kook. But then again, if that doesn’t happen, what fun is it? I think I’d have fun if and when I am on the show. It’s a good program.”
