On a recent episode of Radio Star, Hong Soo Ah discussed her post-plastic surgery experience of receiving unprompted feedback from a director on her new look.
“We were eating and a director I know said that I was more appealing before the surgeries.”
— Hong Soo Ah
Any actress wouldn’t really enjoy being put on the spot by a director in the public, but Hong Soo Ah was cool, calm, and collected.
Unfazed and confident, Hong Soo Ah retorted:
“So I said, then you should’ve cast me then!”
Hong Soo Ah went on to say that she prefers her new look and that it’s allowed her to play a wider range of roles.
“I always felt that I was being limited as an actor. I was always playing these lighthearted, playful, youngest daughter-like roles. But I wanted access to a wider range of roles, and to play characters with more depth.”
—Hong Soo Ah
She also made everyone laugh with a story of how she wasn’t able to go through airport security because of her changed looks.
Regardless of what that director thinks, Hong Soo Ah seems happy to be herself!
