Suzy says she’s much happier as an actress compared to her idol days

Former miss A member Suzy honestly confessed about her satisfaction with her current career after transitioning to acting.

On June 4, Suzy sat down with Wikitree for an interview ahead of the release of the movie ‘Wonderland.’ 

‘Wonderland’ is a new film by director Kim Tae Yong, who received much love for ‘Late Spring’ and ‘Familyhood’, depicting a story of reuniting with loved ones through the video call service ‘Wonderland’, which brings back the deceased using artificial intelligence. In the film, Suzy plays the role of ‘Jung In,’ who brings back her boyfriend Tae Joo (played by Park Bo Gum) using the ‘Wonderland’ service.

Suzy, who debuted as a member of the JYP Entertainment girl group miss A in 2010, started acting through the KBS2 drama ‘Dream High Season 1‘ the following year. After the group disbanded in 2017, she also pursued a solo singing career but shifted most of her focus into acting.

Celebrating her 15th year since her debut, Suzy reflected on her past activities, saying, “It’s cute. When I was a bit younger than I am now, I didn’t think my past self was cute. But now, I find the younger Suzy to be cute when I look back.” She laughed, adding, “Sometimes my memories are faint so, I often wonder, ‘Why am I there?’ (when watching past videos). Maybe it’s because my memories are fading that I find my younger self even cuter.

Suzy mentioned that her current satisfaction with life as an actress is much higher compared to her days when she was an idol. She said, “When I was younger, I had no leisure and it was more competitive. Back then, I lacked the opportunity to reflect on my life or observe it from another point of view, so rather than feeling it was hard, I have memories of struggling because I was young and didn’t know any better.”

She added, “Now I have the leisure to look back on my life more than I did back then, so my satisfaction is incomparably greater. Still, I think I feel these emotions because of those times.”

Meanwhile, ‘Wonderland’ will be released in theaters in Korea on June 5.
