Gong Hyo Jin has had some impressive leading men in the past. On the small screen she has been romanced by Cha Seung Won, Kim Soo Hyun, So Ji Sub and Jo In Sung.
Is there anyone left she would like to star in a romantic comedy with?
When the actress was recently in Taiwan for her first overseas fan meeting, she answered that question. The Korean media outlet Naver TV covered that meeting and reported that there are still a few men Gong would like to act with.
The first is Yoo Ah In, who this year starred in two hit films, “The Throne” and “Veteran” and currently appears in a popular drama “Six Flying Dragons.”
“He’s a great actor,” said Gong. “I said in another interview in the past that I’d want to work with him. It’ll seem consistent if I say the same name this time.”
And the feeling is mutual. On the August 25th episode of MBC Section TV, Yoo Ah In named Gong Hyo Jin as the actress he hopes to work with.
But he is not the only actor she wants as a co-star. She also mentioned her “It’s Okay That’s Love” co-sar Lee Kwang Soo.
“To be honest, I want to act in a romantic drama with Lee Kwang Soo,” she said. “We’d look good together because of the height difference when we’re standing next to each other.”
And it’s not just the height. It’s his self-control.
“When I’m filming a scene and I feel like I’m going to laugh, I look at Lee Kwang Soo. Then I can control myself. Lee Kwang Soo is very serious when he’s acting. When I see a younger actor working so hard, I think that I have to work hard as well.”
Gong admits that she is not good at controlling her own laughter. That’s why it is so important that the other actor be able to focus. When she worked with Kim Soo Hyun in “Producer,” they both often lost control.
“Both of us are bad at holding in our laughter,” she said. “If one us cracked up then both of us would just keep laughing.”
Gong’s latest film “Missing: Lost Child” is not a comedy, so she may be ready for some laughter. In the film Gong plays a babysitter named Han Mae. She cares for the child of a hardworking woman about to be divorced. One day the child and the babysitter disappear. The film will be released in 2016.
