On December 28, Park Shin Hye's management agency S.A.L.T. Entertainment uploaded multiple photos of Park Shin Hye's pictorial along with a caption "Beautiful...She's beautiful" on its official SNS.
The pictorial was for life, fashion and beauty magazine W Korea, where she also did an interview updating about her life.
During the interview with W Korea, actress Park Shin Hye looked back at 2017.
She said, "I spent most of the time for a break and recovery. After shooting for a drama and a movie, I became lethargic. So I spent most of my time taking a break. My pre-recorded film was released, Asia fan meeting was held, and I also attended fashion events."
Park responded, "I went to traveling, learned to sports, and spent most of my time with my family. I went traveling with my mother to Jeju Island and played golf with my parents. I learned surfing at my cousin's place, I remember my body became soar after practicing for four hours on the first day of surfing. I spent my time as if I'm rewarding myself. I tried to balance myself, prepare to do well for a long time."
Interviewer asked another question, "Is there a time when you faced a challenge and how did you overcome it?"
Park answered, "I didn't have much difficult time. But I remember when I was a freshman in college, I took a break for one year and a half from working. At the time I didn't have a management agency and worked only with managers. But my friends around me were working hard as lead stars in various works. So I wondered whether I should be working too. Although now I think I made a good decision."
Park replied, "Rather than trusting myself, I trust my staff members. When I accomplish many things with that trust, the greatest synergy comes out. I don't have high confidence compare to other stars and I'm often impetus and anxious. But when I feel that way, there are some people around me who can help to create a better environment. I'm lucky. I first met my director (of management agency) when I was a middle schooler. We've accomplished many things past 10 years. When I'm going through difficult times, my director would bring many solutions to me and find me the best answer."
