'Train to Busan' Director Reveals His Thoughts Regarding Sohee's Acting Controversy

Posted: 22 Jul 2016 07:49 AM PDT



Netizens have a lot of negative feedback towards Ahn Sohee's acting in the movie 'Train to Busan' saying that she makes awkward appearances on her scenes.

During his interview with Herald Pop, Director Yong Sang Ho shares his candid thoughts about Sohee, who plays the role of a carefree highschool and cheerleader student.

He says, "I absolutely didn't regret it." He continues, "The idea that Sohee's acting is bad didn't even occur to me. All these talks about her bad acting, I don't know where they are coming from. Although I think talks about Sohee still having the strong image as Wonder Girls are going around, but in the movie, I think there's no problem. It's not like there's no problem at all but she did well."

Director Sang Ho also explains that people who are criticizing Sohee and Choi Woo Sik are taking their characters too seriously which is not necessary since their roles are lighter than the other main actors. (T/N: Some details about Sohee and Woo Sik omitted to avoid spoilers)

Actress Park Shin Hye has a heart of gold.

Following her 'Shin Hye Center in Ghana', Park Shin Hye establishes another one in Manila, Philippines.

For the August issue of 'Singles' magazine, KFHI or Korea Food for the Hungry International releases some photos of their ambassador Park Shin Hye when she visited Sampaloc, Manila to meet less privileged children last March.

According to the actress' agency, S.A.L.T Entertainment, prior to the construction of 'Shin Hye Center' in Manila, Park Shin Hye met with some children and interacted with them one by one. During that time as well, Park Shin Hye has discussed and planned the construction with Children Alliances Center. On her visit, Shin Hye played and treated 150 locals to lunch. Currently, the Children Alliance Center in Sampaloc is being used but due to the harsh environment and financial difficulties, it's hard to gather support for the children.

In the future, 'Shin Hye Center' will be established and together with KFHI and the Children Alliance Center, it will be used as a multipurpose cultural center for all the residents. Meanwhile, the construction for 'Shin Hye Center' in Manila is expected to be completed in October this year. The fund was raised thanks to the support of Park Shin Hye and her fans. The actress will continue to support children through donation and hands-on charitable services.
