At an interview held in light of her new film 'Single Rider', actress Gong Hyo Jin opened up about a variety of topics, including some of the hoobae actresses she's worked with.

In 'Single Rider', Gong Hyo Jin worked with Lee Byung Hun and Sohee. When asked about Sohee, Gong Hyo Jin shared, "[Sohee] got me wondering if the only other actress I'd worked with who had experience working in two different fields was IU. Of course, Sohee is currently only active as an actress, but they (Sohee and IU) are different from other actresses."

She continued, "It's distinctly different, getting to know a young, rookie actress, versus getting to know someone who has been working in this field since they were in their teens. I thought maybe they would be self-centered, but after seeing them, I thought they seemed more 'adult' than I am." 

Gong Hyo Jin has worked with IU in the KBS2 drama 'Producer'. When comparing the two idol-turned-actresses, she said, "IU is an elderly adult in the body of a young girl. She had more patience and control than I did. Even when the process got delayed, she controlled herself as if she were simply listening to music." About Sohee, Gong Hyo Jin commented, "Sohee isn't like an adult in a young girl's body, but more a very polite young girl. IU is polite too, but Sohee was polite to the point of almost discomfort. She seems to be naturally thoughtful, but she's also cute when she makes jokes like someone her age should."

That's nice and she complimented them differently but equally!! Gong Hyo Jin's such a good sunbae!! :D

That was a lot nicer then i expected. It's nice when people compare two people without putting one or the other down in the process.

You can't say they are both talented in both fields. IU has talent for singing in her pinky more than Sohee has in her whole body. Not hating but from a point of view of someone who graduate a vocal facility, IU's abilities can't be compared to someone who throughout her whole career as a Wonder Girl was only doing 'OMONA'.

Their vocal/musical ability wasn't being compared. Their acting ability and personalities were. Please pay attention.

There was written that Miss Gong said they're different from other actresses because they are active in both fields and I complained about that, cause from my point of view Sohee's participation in the music industry can't be compared to IU's. *you should also pay attention to the small details and not only to the overall idea.

So being a member of one of THE preeminent girl groups in all of KPop is nothing? I admit, IU is a music beast, but don't be downplaying the mandoo.

that's all sweet and everything but...sohee really can't act at least to me she can't. I know she gotten a lot of recognition b/c of Train to Busan but to me she comes off as very (dry?) that is not the word im looking for I just don't know how to describe it.
