While this might not be a surprise to some fans of the recent hit drama Strong Woman Do Bong SoonPark Bo Young is actually older than both her charming co-stars (Park Hyung Sik and Kim Ji Soo). And while in some cases age might be a problem or obstacle in the entertainment industry, for Park Bo Young working with younger actors seems to have been a wonderful experience!

Although the set of Strong Woman Do Bong Soon was the first contact actress Park Bo Young had with singer and actor Park Hyung Sik, she confessed in a recent interview that she has had her eye on Park Hyung Sik since his early idol days!

“I’ve been watching Park Hyung Sik since his ZE:A days. I know all of their title songs and even got tested on their songs by Park Hyung Sik,” she continued while laughing, “We would even play ZE:A songs on set and Hyung Sik would dance the choreography to their songs.”

Park Bo Young went onto express what it was like working with the younger Park Hyung Sik and Kim Ji Soo,

“Park Hyung Sik has a lot of aegyo (cuteness) while Ji Soo, perhaps, because he has an older sister, was really good at taking care of others. Ji Soo continued to use a formal tone with me until the very end; however, Park Hyung Sik, talked to me informally right away and said ‘Bong Soon-ah, have you eaten yet?’ They are charming in completely opposite ways.”

The ‘closeness’ of Park Bo Young and Park Hyung Sik may have contributed to the recent speculations about the possibility of the two co-stars dating, and Hyung Sik’s ‘sweet gaze’ towards Bo Young did nothing but fan the flames. However, the actress cleared up any misguided beliefs commenting that this is just Hyung Sik’s character,

“I wasn’t the only one Park Hyung Sik looked at like that. He even looks at the male actors like that. He’s just an individual who naturally has a sweet gaze. If he only looked at me like that, I definitely would have swooned but he even looks at the director like that.”
