Seo Ji Hye fazes Super Junior’s Siwon by her taking off her clothes
On the February 21 episode of SBS’s popular variety show Strong Heart, actor Seo Ji Hye was a guest and revealed some funny stories about herself and other actors.
Ji Hye told an interesting anecdote that started off with “I have been pregnant for eight years.” She said, “Since I turned 22, I’ve appeared in four drama series. In every series, I’ve had to have a bun in the oven.”
Lee Seung Gi, a popular actor and the main emcee of the show, asked her if there is any difference between when she plays in a historical drama series and a series about present-day life. Her answer attracted the focus of male guests’ attention: “The special outfit for pregnant women is helpful for keeping out the cold in the winter, but it’s too hot to wear in the summer. The silk clothes for high-class characters don’t absorb perspiration. That’s why whenever I’m an a historical series, I readily take off my clothes. Such silk costumes kill me in the summer.”
Ji Hye explained how the disrobing progresses: “At first, I take off the jeogori, or Korean traditional jacket. When it’s really hot, I even pull up the skirt. All the other actors and staff members around me enjoyed my self-exposure, except one person, Super Junior’s Choi Siwon.”
In 2007, Siwon and Ji Hye were both in MBC’s historical drama series Legend of Hyang Dan. “I didn’t care a snap about taking off the costume in front of Siwon because he’s younger than me, but he looked at me oddly and said, ‘However hot it may be, you shouldn’t forget you are a woman. Please put on your clothes.’ Over time, he became the first person to start taking off his own silk costumes. If you want to see ‘undressed’ actors, visit the sets in the summer,” she said, eliciting a roar of laughter from everyone around the table.
