Girls′ Generation′s (SNSD) Sooyoung, who′s been appearing as Lee Eui Jin of tvN′s The Third Hospital, singing as a singer and hosting as an MC at the same time, sat down to speak calmly about living as Eui Jin and Sooyoung. While she was on it, Sooyoung′s aura as the new muse of designer Song Ja In′s J.Lite line filled the studio.
It′s like you′re becoming more beautiful by the day. You′re so mature I don′t think I can call you a girl anymore.
Thank you. I hope I become prettier. (Laugh)
You′re gathering attention these days as a fashionista. Are you interested in fashion?
I like the attention, but to be honest it puts more pressure on me. I just like comfortable things. These days, my motto is to go back to the basics. Wearing a white t-shirt on jeans and sneakers looks the best in my eyes. I feel uncomfortable trying to live up to expectations as a fashionista, because these days I′m so into more comfortable clothes.
How do you like J.Lite, the clothes you wore today for the photo shoot? They fit you so well it′s like they were yours from the start.
I liked Song Ja In′s clothes since before my debut, so I used to go see her collections a few times. I especially believe this cute bear logo shows Song Ja In′s eco-friendly mindset.
The designs are like rider jackets or biker pants, but because they′re made of washed cotton, they′re comfortable yet stay stylish. If I mix and match them like I did for the photo shoot today, I think I could live through the week only wearing J.Lite clothing.
What style would you like to recommend as a fashionista this fall?
It feels embarrassing to be called a fashionista. I think it would be good to put on jeans with a cotton t-shirt, then wear a leather jacket on top with a chic muffler around my neck. I believe clothes look the best when the person wearing them feels comfortable in them. That′s why I think I′ll start wearing J.Lite more often now.
You tried out acting with ′The Third Hospital′; how did it feel?
At first I was worried I would be too nervous, but with every episode I could concentrate on my acting more comfortably. My seniors helped me concentrate on my work. [Kim] Seung Woo oppa (big brother) tried to teach me at my level and cared for me. [Oh] Ji Ho oppa is very mischievous, and lightens the mood. He gave me a lot of advice on acting, too. I was lucky in that I was able to act with seniors that I can learn a lot from and are generous in sharing.
What type of character is Lee Eui Jin?
She′s lovely, but she′s also very mature. At first she may look frivolous, but after reading the script to the end I found that the Eui Jin I got to know was a great woman who was never afraid of sacrificing herself and enduring pain for love.
