Suzy Talks About Juggling Being an Idol and Acting
Suzy opened up about juggling being an idol and an actress.
Suzy sat down for an interview at a cafe in Seoul′s Samcheong-dong on November 19, ahead of the release of the film Dorihwaga, where she responded to the comment, "Maybe it′s because three years have passed since Architecture 101, but you′ve definitely matured and your image as an actress is stronger than that of an idol," saying "But I′m still overflowing with playfulness inside." She continued, "On the outside, when I look a myself too, I do think that I lost a lot of my baby fat and have matured. To be honest, my thoughts were never slanted one way like, ′I want to be an idol more′ or ′I want to be an actress more.′ And I′m still that way. If there′s a good project out there, I act, and if there are plans for a miss A album, then I move according to that."
Suzy added, "As I juggle being a singer and acting, I do have the desire to do well in both things so I don′t fall behind in one thing. It may be greed, but if I′m still young, I can say that I′m young and take my time and try different things."
Dorihwaga is set in 1867, during a time when women weren′t allowed to perform pansori, and centered on Jin Chae Sun (Suzy), the first woman to become a pansori singer in the Joseon era, and her mentor Shin Jae Hyo (Ryu Seung Ryong). The film hits theaters on November 25.
