Gong Seung Yeon Talks About Feeling Proud Of Her Sister TWICE’s Jeongyeon + The Difference In Their Popularity
Actress Gong Seung Yeon expressed her love for younger sister TWICE’s Jeongyeon!
On the August 31 episode of JTBC’s “Ask Us Anything,” Gong Seung Yeon, Kim Min Jae, Park Ji Hoon, and Park Ho San appeared on the show to promote their upcoming drama “Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency.”
Super Junior’s Kim Heechul asked Min Kyung Hoon, “Isn’t there someone you think of when you see [Gong] Seung Yeon?” and Min Kyung Hoon replied, “She’s the older sister of TWICE’s Jeongyeon.”
Kang Ho Dong added, “I remember. Last time, when TWICE came on the show, Jeongyeon said that her sister is a famous actress. She said that once, she wasn’t wearing any makeup and her sister was wearing a full face of makeup, but people only recognized her.” Kim Heechul added, “She said that she felt really sorry because of that.”
Kim Young Chul chimed in, “I saw Jeongyeon at the salon, and she’s recognizable even when she’s not wearing any makeup.” Gong Seung Yeon joked, “Really? But we’re a mess!”
When Lee Sang Min became confused over whether Gong Seung Yeon was older or younger than Jeongyeon, Kim Heechul explained, “Seung Yeon is the oldest sister. There’s a second, and Jeongyeon is the youngest.” Gong Seung Yeon added, “There’s only a three-year difference between Jeongyeon and me.”
Speaking about the incident when people only recognized Jeongyeon, Gong Seung Yeon explained, “During [the Mnet survival show] ‘Sixteen,’ when Jeongyeon was a trainee before her debut, people recognized her. I was wearing a full face of makeup because I had just returned from filming, and I was even appearing in a drama at the time, but people asked Jeongyeon for autographs.”
When asked if she had felt hurt, the actress replied, “Instead of feeling hurt, I feel proud. My sister is doing a good job, so I should also work hard.”
Seo Jang Hoon then asked, “Do your parents also only ask for Jeongyeon?” Gong Seung Yeon replied, “At some point, my parents began calling each other ‘Jeongyeon’s mom’ and ‘Jeongyeon’s dad.’ When I asked my mom about it, she said that parents are human too, so they follow public recognition as well.” She later added, “There’s also a difference between our incomes.”
