In an interview with Ilgan Sports, SECRET's Sunhwa discussed acting in 'God's Gift - 14 Days'. In the drama, she played Jenny, an overtly confident woman who uses her sex appeal as a distraction during investigations.
Although this would be a difficult role for an idol to play, Sunhwa said, "Rather than being scared because I was an idol, I was careful because of the sexy character as a whole from the very beginning. Maybe it's because I'd only shown a bright image on variety shows in the past, but I did not think this would suit me. It wasn't just me who responded this way, but also the people around me. Also, trying the sexy character did not seem like it would benefit my character as Sunhwa, so I worried a lot."
Also in the drama, there was a scene in which she kept slapping herself to appear crazy at a mental institution for an investigation, which became a hot topic. Sunhwa commented, "It really hurt. But the more I thought it hurt, the more emotional I became, so I hit myself harder. Even while hitting myself, I wondered if I should cry or hold it in. I held it in while acting, but as soon as I got the OK sign, the tears came out. All of the staff members were surprised. Even after the filming, those feelings did not go away for a long time."
Lastly, the interviewer noted that her clothes for the drama were a lot more provocative than what SECRET wore for performances. Sunhwa responded, "Ah... Now that I think about it, that's true. However, I did not think they were provocative. They were the style I always liked and I think they might have come off a bit excessive, but were they very provocative? Well, Jenny had to really stand out, so I wore showy outfits to my heart's content."
