I haven’t been following too closely with Park Shin Hye‘s current non-acting activities but this is a good time to check back in with her. She wrapped the sageuk The Royal Tailor weeks ago but since the beginning of this year she’s been heading overseas for a series of fanmeetings which have been leisurely spaced out. I believe she started off her 2014 Story of Angel Tour in Japan with stops at Osaka and Tokyo. After nearly eight months her tour landed in Southern China last weekend with two stops, one in Shenzhen and the other in Chongqing. As per typical fanmeeting framework, Park Shin Hye sang, played games, answered fan questions, and was generally very interactive with her happy audience. The songs she sang included the remake of Standing Egg‘s “Breakup For You”, “Not Yet For Me”, “Arm Pillow”, “Pitch Black”, and as a special treat she performed the song “My Dear”, which was written by her brother, remade into Chinese.
She must be having a great Summer so far because she’s glowing and has noticeably lost some weight all over. But her face still looks exactly the same which just makes me love her more for shattering the lame excuses of post-plastic surgery entertainers who claim a new face is merely losing weight. She’s also exuding so much warm confidence here I’m more and more excited to see what comes of her future onscreen performance and how she will continue to improve on her weaknesses and build on her strengths. She can’t be great at crying about the fate of her poor parents but then turn into a stiff wall when a hot man is advancing to kiss her senseless. Gotta do it all, and I have faith she’ll get there and hopefully it’s sooner rather than later. And if it’s the PDs in Korea that want to keep her chaste and girly, they really don’t know that she’s all grown up and quite feisty and sassy in real life.
