You’re Beautiful’s Park Shin Hye Reveals Life on Set

Posted by Nez

It looks like You're Beautiful is Korea's latest drama that everyone's buzzing about - with stars like FT Island's Hongki and popular talents like Jang Geun Suk, who can't help but be curious?

10Asia & Movieweek got together with the hot series' gender-swapping pseudo-boy Park Shin Hye (Goong S, Stairway to Heaven) to check out the girl behind, well, the boy.

According to Park, filming for the popular series has been going smoothly and has given her some new friends along the way. "[Being the only girl on a set full of guys] wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I have an older brother at home and my cousins are mostly guys so all my memories from my childhood are of me playing soccer, basketball or Tetris with them. I think that’s why I have a lot of guy friends at school too.

What exactly are those boys like on set? "Both Jang and Park are quite friendly and Lee was a little shy at first but everyone soon became surprised at how quickly we became friends. He says he’s not even worried about being misunderstood as dating me even if we went on a trip together! It’s sort of sad in a way," she laughed. Furthermore, Park also worked with Jang in the past in a TV commercial, so they have great chemistry on set. "I guess we do work together pretty well," the actress remarked. "When he throws lines at me which weren’t in the script, I’ll throw lines back at him and our acting will keep flowing. I think he knows how I’ll respond to what he does."

Recently, the series has also garnered attention from kpop fans for the characters' rendition of songs by SNSD, 2NE1 and more. "If you look at it closely, you’ll notice that the choreography is wrong in parts," Park laughed, then couldn't help but add, "by the way, I did Jung Yong-hwa’s make-up for “Genie” as well as mine. I thought the guys wouldn’t put on make-up but Jang Keun-suk and Lee Hong-ki were so I told Yong-hwa that I would turn him into Tiffany and used pink eye shadow on him. Everyone looked so pretty!"

With experiences like those on set, it's undeniable that many girls (& guys) would kill to switch places with her. However, Park has expressed gratitude and pleasant surprise to the support she's been getting. "I was recently in Gapyeong for a shoot in front of a high school and ... I heard several hundreds of girls scream at me. And they were shouting “Mi-nam oppa!” They weren’t calling me “Shin-hye unni!”," Park laughed. She then added, "Oh, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have any more guy fans. I was once shooting in downtown Seoul when businessmen in suits recognized me and said I was cute which made me feel good." Talk about getting fans from all backgrounds!

Park Shin Hye's got a growing a fanbase not only from her character in You're Beautiful but also her roles in Goong S, Kimchee Radish Cubes and Stairway to Heaven. Furthermore, she's been in the spotlight for her ongoing studies at Joongang University, known to school big-name actors like Kim So-Eun, Kim Bum and Go Ara. Despite her fame, she concentrates on her exams, reports and casual hobbies like ballet, swimming and learning Chinese. It's great to see that such a talented young woman is so well-grounded as well!
