Moon Geun-young performs on Chocolate

On January 30, Moon Geun-young filmed an appearance on the music/talk show Kim Jung-eun’s Chocolate, where she got onstage at Kim’s request and performed a “sexy dance.” She also sang the song she’d recorded for her management company’s “Love Story Project,” titled “That Sound of the Wind.”

For years, Moon has been one of Korea’s most beloved child-stars-turned-adult-actors, and has borne the affectionate nickname “Korea’s Little Sister.” Moon said, however, “I’m getting too old to be called little sister. Now, on set there are people who are younger sisters to me.” (She is 22.)

Asked what kind of image she’d like to settle into, Moon explained, “When I was young, I only did what I wanted to do, and as I started thinking it would be nice to have a boyfriend, I started to become more feminine.” She admitted that while she’s been a student at university, she hasn’t gone on a single group date or blind date. Laughing, she said, “Because my personality is easygoing, guys only think of me as a friend.”

Moon Geun-young’s episode of Kim Jung-eun’s Chocolate airs on January 31.

This is cool. Is Chocolate a popular show? I recognize Kim Jung-eun - she was in Lovers in Paris, right? - but I'm not familiar with the show. Has she been acting lately, or has show host been her primary career for the past few years?

@ Molly - she only been doing the show of late...I haven't see her do anything since Lovers in Paris....

Has the title of Korea's Little Sister moved onto Kim So Eun? Or Park Shin Hye? I wonder who's the next contender for the title, now that she's said she feels too old to be called that.....

@Molly, @Kay
Kim Jung Eun did "Lovers" and she's also done "General Hospital2" since "Lovers in Paris". She might have done more but I can't recall right now.

I don't know if "Chocolate" is a popular show in Korea but if I was visiting Seoul - I would totally love to be in the audience for a taping!

@Molly,

after 2004's 'lovers in paris', kim jung eun also did a few dramas such as princess lulu (2005), lovers (2006, the third of the 'lovers trilogy' after 'lovers in paris' and 'lovers in prague') and 'general hospital 2'. she and her boyfriend lee seo jin (co-star in 'lovers') broke up back in 2008.

not quite liking moon geun young's outfit, but she's got a lovely smile.

@2 Kay

I think Korea's little sister now is probably Shim Eun Kyung (Hwang Jini, The Legend, and Kyung-sook, Kyung-sook's Father) She is a great actress!

MGY's outfit is a bit weird, but I think she strangely pulled it off. MGY is only like 2 years younger than me, but I had always felt like she was so much younger and i feel kind of wistful to see her grow up.

Isn't there more than one Nation's Little Sister?

Didn't Ahn Sohee have that title too?

Even though WG are also called the Nation's Little Sisters, I thought it was also more of Sohee since the Omona craze and being placed as the most influential idol at #2 in top 100 in 2008 and somewhere in top 10 in 2009. Those mandoo cheeks are loved nationally.

---

MGY looks so young that she still seems like a little sister ^^;;;

But she's not a bad singer (design&) and she actually a really good dancer. I still can't forget that moonwalk she did in a cf. Cute.

Sohee? Meh, I don't think so. Others might get called "the next little sister," but Moon Geun-young is THE Little Sister. Though I agree that she's getting a bit old for that since she's a leading lady now. I think Shim Eun-kyung has the most claim to taking it over, although Nam Ji-hyun just might sneak up on her. There are several potential Little Bros, too, but I'd say Yoo Seung-ho has the title locked up for another few years.

I'm so excited about her new drama Cinderella Unni! Can't wait till March!

@Kay @asianromance
Yeah I'm pretty sure Shim Eun-kyung is considered the Nation's Little Sister currently, though some would say that Nam Ji-hyun (Queen Seondeok, Will it Snow for Christmas?) is a close contender since she's had a great year. SEK is really talented and probably is one of the best actresses of her generation. I think I've heard her being compared as the next Shim Eun-ha somewhere.

@Biscuit
I've always thought the title was whoever everyone decided was the most talented child actor/actress...the female equivalent of the Nation's Little Brother (Yoo Seung-ho)...though you might be right...I don't know my K-idols that well.

Edit: I guess it should be the Nation's Next Little Sister :) Actually I don't know if SEK or NJH could ever have the same pull that MGY had with the public. The fact that her name carried more weight then KRW when Little Bride came out...I don't know if another child actress has that same type of affection from the public.

MGY's still THE nation's little sister. The only one that's bigger is Kim Yuna, but she's not an actress or a pop star. Yet. ;)

I thought her outfit looks cute on MGY.

@Taohua: I think the title goes to the person that's most beloved by the nation? I don't think profession matters...

Wouldn't it mean that talent alone doesn't decide who gets the title? Let's say there's an actress that's really talented, but there's another that's less talented but has gained complete love from the nation. Wouldn't the lesser talented one have a higher chance of gaining the title? So it's the amount of love/admiration/etc received that decides who gets the title?

Than again, what exactly qualifies one to receive these titles?

Like Oh Young Shil gained the title the "Nation's Aunt" from her strong impression as Jung Gyo Bin's Aunt, Jung Ha Neul, in Wife's Temptation.

And than there's the Nation's Fairy... and etc. It's like all these people should gather at an event. "The Nation's Family".

If MGY is getting old for the title, she can just take the "Nation's College Student". "Nation's Elder Sister" is too old... so since she's at the age of a college student she can use that title til she's in her 30's and take the Elder Sister role. Than in her 40's... nation's aunt.. than 50 it's nation's mother... than 60 is nation's grandmother....

Oh, that one is taken by Go Hyung Jung. (No really . . . the joke goes that she looks like an middle-aged Moon Geun Young. ;) )

Belleza, really? lol, I never knew that. Now I'm gong to look at GHJ in a different way every time I see her.

But I think by the time MGY reaches her 30's, that position will be open. GHJ will be the future MGY as an ajumma :)

In 10 years, wouldn't GHJ be 50?

"Because my personality is easygoing, guys only think of me as a friend.”

---how ADORABLE. she hasn't got a clue! oh, MGY, the reason why guys don't ask you out is probably because they think you're too good for them. and you are! >.<

But you'd figure, if she's the Nation's Little Sisters, then all the Nation's Big Brothers will stomp the kid's ass if he dares messin wit MGY.

Correct me if I'm wrong but hasn't Im Yeh-Jin (Yoon Eun Hye's mother in Goong and Gu Hye-Sun's mother in Boys over Flowers), been called the nation's little sister at the start of her career?

yes, i like that outfit.

to me, MGY no matter how old she is now (she's 22?!) she still looks like the nation's little sister. i think it's just how she don't seem to grow old. she still look like a young girl. :)

my vote goes to: Seo Shin Ae. (Okay, there are a few child actors whom I heart but Seo Shin Ae stands out more prominently, I just love her too much in Thank You. or is she too young to be considered? O.O)

for little bros: yoo seung-ho wins hand-down.
for younger bros: park ji bin + wang suk hyun! <3

I really love Moon Geun-Young since I had been watching her in that movie "Innocent Steps", "My Little Bride", & that drama - "Autumn's Tale" - hmm!

Oh my gosh -- She's already older than me? Lolz. I thought I was older than her but it isn't! Ahh, she is older than me about, like, 3 years, ouch. So....It's all right with me, heh.
I really LOVE what Moon Geun Young wear her cute outfit like that! Oh I can't wait to see her in a new drama "Cinderella's Sister" next month (in March), oh yeaa!

yeah, MGY somehow looks like younger version of Go Hyung Jung, and that's make Chun Jung Myung little bit nervous around her.
"...boys think of me as friends" nope...I think her presence is too strong for boys, with such unstained image, no boys will get close to her, and thanks that the first guy who kissed her is Chun Jung Myung, I kindda like them.
