The multi-talented Su-zy, who is in her early 20s, has already transformed herself from a young member of girl group miss A to a much-in-demand actress.
She spoke recently about her career and personal growth after the popular MBC drama "Gu Family Book," in which she stars with actor Lee Seung-gi, wrapped up late last month.
Su-zy received rave reviews for her performance and emerged as the most sought-after starlet for her age, at a time when domestic TV screens are dominated by seasoned actresses in their 30s or 40s.
"I learned so much from doing this drama. The staff and cast were very supportive, so I was able to focus on my acting with great confidence," she said.
"Many things were new to me as it was my first action-packed fantasy period drama. But I was very happy to receive the praise of fans. Thanks to their support, I never felt tired despite the busy schedule," she said, vowing to keep improving.
She said she knows her growing popularity comes with a great deal of responsibility, and that she feels the pressure. "People are calling me the hottest actress right now. Admittedly, I have a lot of fans, but I’m also very aware of the fact that such popularity will one day fade away."
