Chun Woo-hee, disparaging body shape, “I’m not skinny”
Actress Chun Woo-hee made an 'absurd' comment that she was not thin.

On the 23rd, Woohee Chun met with Ten Asia at a cafe in Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul and told various stories about the Netflix series 'The 8 Show'.

'The Eight Show' is a work that depicts the story of eight people who are trapped in a secret space divided into eight floors and participate in a sweet but dangerous show where they 'earn money as time accumulates'. It is an adaptation of the webtoons ‘Money Game’ and ‘Pygame’ by author Bae Jin-soo, which recorded 300 million cumulative global views. In the play, Chun Woo-hee plays the role of the 8th floor, a person with a free-spirited personality who doesn't know where things will go.

Along with 'The Eight Show', Chun Woo-hee is also currently appearing on JTBC's 'I'm Not a Hero'. In response, Cheon Woo-hee said, "I have a jinx. There were many times when two works were released at the same time. Two works came out within a month and were promoted together. There were times when the gap was unintentionally long and the two works were released within a month or two." He said, “But I think it will be fun to watch in its own way because it will show a completely different genre and a different color of acting.”

The difference in weight between the two works was also revealed. Chun Woo-hee said, "I always have a certain weight to match for each project, but for 'Hero', I used my original weight. I lost a lot of weight on 'The Eight Show.' After going on a diet, I realized that no matter how much weight I lost, I was not the skinny type. “I thought it would be better if I showed up as I am since I was born with it, but the response was so good that I wondered why I worked so hard on a diet,” he said with a smile.

Director Han Jae-rim called Chun Woo-hee “Korea’s Emma Stone.” In response, Chun Woo-hee said, "I like actress Emma Stone, and I've heard that she resembles her. We're both a bit like frogs," and expressed her gratitude, saying, "I think I should work harder since the director said that."
