The life of an idol means that you have to be prepared for any kind of situation, whether it is during interviews, schedules, or out and about. One person who is a veteran in the celebrity game is Girls’ Generation‘s Yoona.
Since debuting under the SM Entertainment girl group in 2007, Yoona has not only wowed netizens with her amazing on-stage talent. But she has become a global star with her acting skills in some iconic K-Dramas and films.
With so much experience in so many fields, it isn’t surprising that Yoona recently gained praise for handling a tricky question from reporters during a recent press conference.
Yoona was recently promoting the latest Korean film Confidential Assignment 2, alongside the likes of Hyun Bin and Daniel Henney. During the promotions, Yoona wowed with her dazzling visuals throughout the schedules.
Yet, recently, a new interview was released showcasing that, alongside her visuals, Yoona is also a true professional when it comes to interviews.
One of the questions asked the idol to pick between two actors she had worked with in the past and say which she preferred to act with, Hyun Bin or Lee Jong Suk.
As the interview was ending, Yoona was asked whether acting with ‘Big Mouse’ Lee Jong Suk or ‘Confidential Assignment 2’ Hyun Bin was better.
Of course, Hyun Bin is Yoona’s recent co-star after starring in Confidential Assignment 2, and the duo has always gained praise for their amazing on-screen chemistry.
Yet, earlier in the year, Yoona also received huge love for her role in the series Big Mouse alongside Lee Jong Suk. The story had netizens laughing and crying from the rollercoaster of emotions.
Of course, it could’ve been easy to pick, but Yoona seemingly knew that any choice could be twisted into something negative. Instead, the idol gave a sensible yet witty answer that was praised before leaving.
She answered, ‘You can’t compare a husband [Lee Jong Suk’s character] with someone I’m just seeing [Hyun Bin’s character],’ and left.

The answer referred to the fact that Yoona and Lee Jong Suk’s characters were married in Big Mouse, whereas the relationship wasn’t as deep with Hyun Bin’s character in Confidential Assignment 2.
When the interview was released, both Korean and international netizens couldn’t stop praising the answer. Hyun Bin and Lee Jong Suk are two of the biggest actors in the world, and Yoona would’ve enjoyed working with them equally.
q. who do you prefer the most between co-stars hyunbin and lee jongsuk?
🦌: you can't compare your husband with the man you had a crush on (referring to their respective characters in 'big mouth' and 'confidential assignment 2').

Her sensible yet witty answer showcases her years of experience in the business.
