Han Sunhwa hopes to get a chance to sing together with the Secret members


Q. How does it feel to finish your drama "Radiant office"?
Sunhwa: Just before appearing on the drama, I filmed a one-act play and I realized that I've lost touch due to a long hiatus. But, I could do well in "Radiant office" because so many people helped me a lot.

Q. What did you pay attention to most when you played your character?
Sunhwa: When I play my character, I always try to understand her first. Even though I've never worked at office in real life, I heard many things from my friends, and that's why I could understand my character Ha Jina.

Q. What was it like acting together with actor Lee Donghwi?
Sunhwa: It was better than expected. I learned a lot from him, and I like him so much.

Q. You had a long hiatus after leaving Secret.
Sunhwa: Yeah, it really was a tough time. I experienced a slump, and I had to endure it. You know, I was really busy when I was active as a singer. But when I was having a hiatus, I had nothing to do and I even couldn't know what to do. I felt like I was an idiot. I feel better now, though.


Q. It seems like many fans are expecting the reunion of Secret.
Sunhwa: Well, I hope I can get a chance. However, I think I should be cautious about it because it isn't a decision for me to make alone. We will be able to sing together some day if the circumstances are right.

Q. As an actress, are you satisfied with your acting?
Sunhwa: Actually, I still don't think I'm a real actress. I still don't know much about acting, and I'm just trying to do my best because I know how precious this opportunity is for me.

Q. What do you advise for young idols who plan to act?
Sunhwa: Well, I'm not at the level to advise for them, but I want to tell them they should not miss the valuable opportunity. I was an idol, and I know idols go through all kinds of hardships. For example, they can't get enough sleep. However, they can get many more good chances than ordinary actors to act only because they're idols and loved by many people.

Q. What's your goal?
Sunhwa: As I had a long hiatus, I want to be really busy. There are so many roles that I want to play, and I hope to appear in a variety of dramas and movies.
