Suzy‘s two year reign as Korea’s favorite little sister star may have serious competition this year finally. 2016 dawns with the arrival of Girl’s Day‘s Hyeri, riding the success wave that is Answer Me 1988 along with her aegyo from last year, not to mention FNC Entertainment pushing AOA‘s Seolhyun like she’s a tasty vitamin treat and all of Korea needs a dose. It doesn’t help that Suzy didn’t have a hit drama or movie last year, and if you really want to be honest she’s still riding the fondness from Architecture 101 for the most past.
That’s one long ride so good for her, but this year she’s got to deliver or else that throne is totally up for the taking. That means upcoming KBS summer melodrama Arbitrarily Fond with Kim Woo Bin has a double load of pressure, for him it’s to prove his leading man chops on the television screen, and for her it’ll be to partake of yet another successful entertainment vehicle. It’s got famed screenwriter Lee Kyung Hee delivering the script so the story isn’t going to be weak, that’s for sure. Until the drama arrives, Suzy continues to churn out CFs and do it prettily, like this recent sunglasses spread for Carin.
