Park Bo Young Talks About Korean Beauty Standards, Her Life As An Actress, And More
On June 11, Park Bo Young held a V Live broadcast to open up about her life as an actress.
She revealed that she didn’t like inviting family members to her filming sets. “I don’t let them come because I get shy. I can’t act in front of them,” she admitted.
“One time when I was filming ‘Strong Woman Do Bong Soon,’ I had to ask my little sister to bring me something. I was filming a scene where I had to carry Park Hyung Sik and Ji Soo on my back, and my sister just had her eyes on them the whole time. She had no interest in me whatsoever. I decided I would be able to invite her next time,” she shared.
Park Bo Young then opened up about dieting, saying, “Honestly, Korean beauty standards are harsh. People are even putting pressure on non-celebrities to be super skinny, and the standards of thinness are just getting worse. My little sister is fine just the way she is but she calls herself chubby, which makes me really sad. As long as you’re healthy, I don’t think weight matters.”
She also talked about her career as an actress, saying, “Even though it’s tiring, I keep going because it’s fun. I’m able to live out lives I had never lived before.”
