What have you been up to recently?

After [shooting] the drama Ghost Doctor, I have been reading a lot of new scripts. I hope I can deliver another great drama series very soon.

How would you describe your style?

I love comfortable clothes for my #OOTD. I like to pair colours or accessories. I really enjoy styling myself depending on the situation. Sometimes, it's fun to try new styles.

What do you usually carry in your bag?

I always carry my wallet, lip balm, hand cream, aroma oil and headphones, I feel incredibly uneasy without them!

How do you find acting compared to singing? 

The biggest difference is as a singer, I can show you new music and stages, and as an actor, I live like a new character. The environments and the routines are certainly different. Still, I think it’s the same in a way that you have to work hard and work together with the people around you.

What makes you feel strong and powerful? 

A dedicated routine, a consistency. I try to be diligent about my work and exercise routine. I believe that every small moment in life accumulates to make you stronger.

Tell us about your ambassadorship for Jimmy Choo. 

This is a great honour. I have always loved Jimmy Choo’s style and it is exciting to represent the brand in South Korea. I’m looking forward to the days ahead.

Any favourite memories while donning Jimmy Choo? 

The first day we shot the [Jimmy Choo] campaign, hands down. It was a great moment to see its various products. Since it was the day before my birthday, Jimmy Choo prepared a birthday surprise for me. I felt so happy and grateful.

What are some of your favourite Jimmy Choo pieces?

If I really had to pick—the Averly pointy heels with asymmetric bows. It was love at first sight. I also really like the Bonbon bag—I can’t take my eyes off it.

I love how wearing a pair of Jimmy Choos makes you feel more elegant and confident. We can easily find the brand in dramas and movies featured as indispensable fashion items. Of course, the products themselves are also lovely and pretty.
