    my collegues and friends often say that she was horrible in BOF, she was loud, she'd scream all the time, she had fake behaviour, and ugly look... I don't think that. I think she was in her look like a normal teenager- not beauty but definitely not ugly, very normal and quite cute with cute smile. But when Goo Joon Pyo give her dress, shoes and they pin up a hair for her, she was really beauty! I also even like her- she was one of the characters for which I was watching BOF. I like how she was eating anything with mouth full of food that was so amusing!
