When asked which of her co-stars she most enjoyed working with, Park Shin Hye mentioned the two stars fans most liked seeing her act with. She talked about her "You"re Beautiful" co-star Jang Geun Suk and her "The Heirs" co-star Lee Min Ho.
The actress discussed them during an interview she did for @Star magazine. The magazine"s November issue, featuring her interview and photo shoot, will be released on Oct. 20.
The interviewer shared the saying that every actor who works with Park Shin Hye becomes a Hallyu star.
"Why do you think that is," the interviewer asked.
The modest actress said she was honored to hear things like that but she refused to take any credit for their stardom.
"I think it"s because I made the other person stand out," said Park Shin Hye.
She said that her co-stars already had what it took to become stars before they ever acted with her.
"They have enough charm to become Hallyu stars without me," she said. "I am happy to know that people think that I have some influence over this. Honestly, I was the one who received more of an advantage because of them."
She and Jang Geun Suk have remained friends since they worked together on "You"re Beautiful." They share the common experience of growing up on set. He began modeling as a child and she had her first drama role at age 13 when she appeared in "Stairway to Heaven."
"While filming for SBS" "You"re Beautiful," we worked really well together," she said. "We communicated well and not just about work-related things. We understood each other."
She also had kind words for Lee Min Ho, her co-star in "The Heirs." In that drama Lee Min Ho played the unhappy second son of a corporation president. She played the daughter of their maid. Despite their different backgrounds, their characters fell in love.
"We worked well together because he has a really nice personality," she said of Lee Min Ho. "We just had good chemistry."
Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye had such great chemistry in the drama, people wondered if they were dating in real life, but both stars denied being more than colleagues. Park Shin Hye will next star in the upcoming drama Pinocchio. Her co-star in that drama will be actor Lee Jong Suk.
