Yoo In Na talks about being compared to Jun Ji Hyun and more BTS stories from 'You Who Came From the Stars'
It still hasn't hit many viewers that 'You Who Came From the Stars' is over and Yoo In Na reveals she feels the same way in a recent interview!
Yoo In Na confessed that the inferiority complex that her character Yoo Se Mi felt as a supporting actress wasn't too far off from the truth, "It would be a lie if I said that I wasn't sad from my lack of screen time. Although I was saddened by things such as my screen time getting shorter, when I thought, 'If I was the writer, If I was the viewer,' I thought that they would've been busy watching Chun Song Yi and Do Min Jun's love story alone. If I always think from the others' perspectives, it helps me to accommodate and understand. Now I think that not having much screen time is okay. I thought that that would be good."
"I haven't been able to rest after it ended, so it still feels like I'm filming 'You Who Came From the Stars'. I think I'll be able to realize that it's over by next week. Following completion of filming, I've been busy doing photo shoots and interviews, so it still hasn't hit me yet. I want to read books, eat, and sleep at home during my break."
She also opened up about the pressure from being compared to her co-star Jun Ji Hyun, "I felt more pressure and sorry to the people who saw the two shot of me and Jun Ji Hyun. Jun Ji Hyun is really a beauty that only comes once a century so would it be necessary for me to feel something else in comparison? Since ten years ago, I would watch TV and go, 'It's Jun Ji Hyun,' as a fan. I had fun watching her. I will admit the things that should be obvious and filmed in that way. People would tell me things here and there, but I didn't feel any pressure from the two shot and didn't even think twice about it."
"I am in talks for a few productions, but I will wait a bit longer until I come upon a good production. I've also started 'Get It Beauty'. Although there's pressure, I anticipate that if I do my best then several months later, it will hopefully be 'Yoo In Na's Get It Beauty'. It is the program I want to have for a long time. I plan to work hard."
Stay tuned for Yoo In Na's next production, and catch her makeup tips on 'Get it Beauty'!

On the March 8 broadcast of 'Entertainment Relay', the reporter asked Girls' Generation who braved through the cold weather to see their fans, "It looks like you've prepared a lot [for your comeback], what was the aspect you were concerned about the most?" Taeyeon shared her group's confidence in their dancing, "Of course, if you think of Girls' Generation, it's our sharp-as-a-knife choreography so we focused on that a lot."
When asked, "How was your stage today?", Sooyoung shared, "I don't think we've made many mistakes during our stage today", to which Hyoyeon added with her usual blunt personality, "I was busy doing my part that I didn't look at the others." The reporter also asked, "Sooyoung sshi is getting prettier everyday. Why do you think Sooyoung is getting prettier?" Yuri cutely answered with aegyo, "Because she is receiving love", referring to Sooyoung's boyfriend Jung Kyung Ho.
When asked, "For the first time since your debut, you performed with male dancers. Who was the person that liked it the most?", Hyoyeon shared, "We all liked it equally."
The reporter complimented Sooyoung who fed him, "You are so feminine. Someone must be very happy." The reporter then gave them some advice, "There really needs to be a person who you can open your heart to. Who is that person for YoonA?" YoonA shared, "Me? I also have my family, friends..." The reporter tried to get YoonA to mention her boyfriend Lee Seung Gi and asked, "Anyone else? Is it that person who came out on the 'Entertainment Relay' news?" YoonA shared, "I don't know who you're talking about", wanting to change the subject with her shy laughter.

Girls' Generation give their thoughts on promoting alongside 2NE1
Girls' Generation revealed they feel nothing but joy that they get to promote at the same time as their girl group rival 2NE1.
During a recent interview held backstage at 'Music Bank' on March 7, Girls' Generation finally gave their two cents on making their comeback alongside 2NE1, "Our promotions are overlapping for the first time in a while so it's fun and pleasant."
Tiffany and Seohyun shared, "During Girls' Generation and 2NE1's early years, girl groups were not that common... Now that we get to promote together, we feel proud and good to show girl power in the K-pop scene."
Seohyun added, "2NE1's color is totally different from ours... It is fun to watch 2NE1's stage. We also plan to definitely watch 2NE1's stage... Rather than competing with other girl groups, we will naturally show our sunbae image... Although there is a sense of responsibility and pressure, I think that we can grow because of that."
Seohyun also talked about how relieved she felt to finally make a comeback with "Mr.Mr". "It feels like our thirst has finally been quenched." Tiffany also thought her group's MV data loss was a gift in disguise, sharing, "As our comeback schedule got delayed, we thought it was an opportunity to show a perfect stage... Although we always do to prepare for our comebacks, this time we also listened to our song over 50 times a day and practiced hard. I think there is a time for everything including our comeback... Each stage will be worth looking forward to."
Stay tuned for the ongoing battle of the two biggest girl groups in K-pop today on music shows this weekend!
