Actress Gong Seung Yeon (real name, Yoo Seung Yeon) revealed in an interview with MBN Star that she had been against her sister Yoo Jung Yeon's involvement in JYP Entertainment's competitive Mnet reality program, 'SIXTEEN.'
She stated, "When Jung Yeon first told me she was going to appear in 'SIXTEEN,' I was against it. I had experienced the training life, so I worried that she would become discouraged from her dream.
"Jung Yeon really wanted to appear on 'SIXTEEN,' so I just decided to support her. Right now, the response is better than I had thought it would be, so I'm very pleased. I didn't think that Jung Yeon would even come out first in the voting results." You can sense her pride in her sister!
"Jung Yeon also gained a lot of fans," Gong Seung Yeon continued. "One day, my sister came to me after throwing the first pitch [at a game], and was happy as she told me there were even cameras taking pictures of her. We've worked in the entertainment industry together since we were young, so we are even more loving [of each other]. I really hope that my sister woudl do well."
