Gong Hyo Jin Talks About Her Funny Appealing Leading Men

Gong Hyo Jin has had some very attractive co-stars and she recently discussed what it was like to work with them.

In an interview with the Chinese media outlet, she discussed working with her co-stars in "The Greatest Love" and "The Master's Sun," both successful comedies written by the Hong Sisters. In "The Greatest Love," her co-star Cha Seung Won played an idol. In her recent hit, "The Master's Sun," So Ji Sub played the man whose touch made her character's ghost-filled life less torturous.

What's it like to work with these k-drama actors? She described both of these attractive stars as being very funny. But then she might just inspire that in a co-star.

"Cha Seung Won is a very funny sunbae," she said. "Not only does he have more life experience than me to draw on but his acting is very nuanced. He really encouraged and supported me when we acted together.

So Ji Sub was also fun to act with and that surprised her.

"When I first met him, I thought he was really quiet and shy," she said. "But he laughed more than I expected. He likes to joke around when he talks to you."

So Ji Sub said that he took the part in "The Master's Sun" because he wanted to act with Gong Hyo Jin and, after working with her for a while, he called her a true comic genius.

Given the popularity of the noona romance, the 34-year-old actress was asked whether she would consider acting in another romance with a younger star. The third member of "The Master's Sun" love triangle was 26-year-old actor Seo In Guk. But Gong Hyo Jin said she has no plans to appear in a noona romance, as she does not want to make any fans of younger actors jealous.

She is however about to star in a romantic comedy with another desirable actor, Jo In Sung. In the drama "It's Okay, It's Love," she will play Ji Hae Soo, a psychiatrist, who identifies with her patients. Jo In Sung will play Jang Jae Yeol, a mystery writer who suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder. And of course she will be the only woman who can help him overcome or cope with his problems. And Gong Hyo Jin's comedy skills might also inspired some amusing chemistry between them.

There are not too many actors she still wants to work with but she does have her eye on Chinese actor, director and producer Stephen Chow and would like to film a romantic comedy with him.
