Thank You’s little girl now a little lady

About a week ago, I mentioned the new drama project for child actor Seo Shin-ae. (Most of us may remember her from starring in the heartwarming 2007 drama Thank You alongside Jang Hyuk and Gong Hyo-jin.)

To accompany the news, her management has recently released new photos of Seo, and she’s grown up a lot — still adorable and round-cheeked, but much less child than she was just a year ago. (Not a little girl, not yet a woman? Or perhaps, more apropos to her career: not a baby star anymore, not yet a plastic-surgeried tartlet-in-training. Let’s hope this talented girl never ends up there.) Just to give you a refresher, here’s what she looked like in Thank You —>

Her new series is the KBS1 daily drama Glory of Youth [청춘예찬], which will air when the currently running Big Sister vacates its time slot in January.

what a sweetie!

"Thank You" is one of my favorite dramas-- not because it had an exciting plot, but because something about it resonated with me. I loved watching her character, Bom, in "Thank You" talk to her mother because the mother/daughter pair had adorable dialogue and I was always amazed how natural she was at acting with adults.

Like you, I hope we can watch her mature over time through her dramas rather than see her get devoured by our over-sexualized pop culture. And I hope she has time to be a little girl before she's thrust into the adult world.

She was cute and adorable, but now, wow. I hope she won't change anything on her face with plastic.
Looking forward her next projects..

Seo Shinae is absolutely adorable and such a great actress! she's better than a lot of older actors in my opinion. i loved her as Bom in Thank You.

Have you guys seen this video of her auditioning for a movie role? It's really great!

I highly doubt she'll end up like Lindsey Lohan. Remember this is Korea we're talking about not America. She'll probably end up with a clean image like Moon Geun Young, can't image her ending up like LH.

She is ADORABLE. Amazing how quickly they grow, huh?

But not THAT quickly. Come on? The ultra-popular hand-on-hip arching turn-around pose, and a miniskirt? (The miniskirt picture all in all isn't bad though).

Is her stylist dressing her and the photographer telling her how to pose? Because she's still 10. I wish they'd just have these young stars shown more naturally. Do they have to be like that because it'd be more attractive/cuter? Come on! Your 10!! That guarantees that you're cute!

I second the motion of entry #17 which read:

______________________________________________________________________

I don’t remember giving her permission to grow up…
______________________________________________________________________

Here's hoping that that special light is always behind her eyes and that she'll remain as unaffected by it all as is humanly possible. We love you, Bom-a!!!

She's cute. But she has nothing on the ADORABLE and BEAUTIFUL little girl in The Chaser. Can't believe the Korean media isn't talking about her. She knocked my socks off with her beauty and acting skills. And she's like, 8 years old.

Oh my, our Bom is already a lady! i just hope she'll remain as sweet and innocent but of course she has to grow and learn the basics of life. Fingerscrossed, i hope she'll be like Moon Geun Young. Good luck on her career.
