Posted: 07 Feb 2013 07:30 AM PST



Kim Sung Ryeong confessed that it was difficult for her to get along with Jung Yunho (U-Know Yunho) at first.

The episode of SBS' 'Good Morning' that aired on the 4th showed a special segment of the Monday-Tuesday drama 'Queen of Ambition'.

On this day, Kim Sung Ryeong talked about the first time she met TVXQ's Jung Yunho, who appears as the actress' younger brother in the drama.

She said, "He's a famous idol star, and though he's my junior, he and I didn't walk down the same path to become an actor, so I put up a wall between us. But then I realized that doing that wouldn't help. I opened up to Yunho, and he warmly accepted me, and I'm very grateful for that."

She continued to add, "He has a lot of passion and he's such a nice guy. I used to think he was a young star I could never relate to, but I realized that he's a human being too, just like the rest of us. I'd like him to shine brighter as an actor. Like how there are different levels in the path of a singer, actors get better by gaining experience through the projects they work on. I'd love to see him work his way up the different levels of being an actor and work on good projects."

Kim Sung Ryeong and Jung Yunho play the role of the daughter and son of BaekHak Group's Chairman Baek Chang Hak.
