    Song Ji Hyo, one of my girl crushes. she absolutely kicks ass
    She doesn’t try to look pretty but to me I think she is one of the prettiest actresses in Korea.

    I really want to see Song Ji Hyo do a rom-com drama (is it too much to hope it be with either Hyun Bin ?!! LOL.) , I’m honestly surprised that she has yet to tackle that genre but hopefully in the future she will because she has such great comic timing and it would be a great to see her take on a role that is different from her previous ones.
    Before I was a fan of Song Ji Hyo the variety person, I adored her work as an actress from hating her character Min Hyo-rin from Princess Hours, to loving her as Lady Ye Soya in Jumong (I’m so in the minority but I was always rooting for her & Jumong, as much as I liked So Seo Na with Jumong but something always drew me to root for Ye Soya – that’s a whole different discussion LOL) to playing the third wheel in the epic love story that was Frozen Flower. (By the way it is such a shame that we haven’t seen Jo In Sung and Ji Hyo team up again, I loved their chemistry in the film.)
    I remember reading one of her recent interviews and something along the lines of her being out with her parents (this was post Princess Hours) and somebody started pointing their finger at her in a disproving manner, she didn’t mind but she didn’t want her parents to see cause they’ll be effected. I just find it ridiculous that people can’t differentiate between a character and the actress. I come across a couple of comments from people who’ve discovered Song Ji Hyo through Running Man and how shocked and disappointed they were with her scenes in Frozen Flower *smh* & that they can’t look at her the same way again [Personally don’t see what the big deal is. I think people tend to think K-movie’s are exactly the same as K-drama’s when it comes to romance/love, from what I’ve seen of K-movie’s that ain’t the case.]
    As for Ji Hyo on variety program’s she has definitely come a long way. I randomly came across a clip of her on Ya Shim Man Man with one of her co-stars from Jumong and she was so shy, completely different to how she is now on Running Man. I loved her episodes of Family Outing & you could see the potential she had from those episodes when she went toe-to-toe with Lee Hyori (which hadn’t happened in a long time since Park Shi Yeon had health issues), catching Jae Suk out on his “nose bleed” & getting her revenge on Daesung – “Do you know why it rains ?/Cause Daesung wills it to/Since it’s so hot, you should make it rain again.”. I love that through Running Man that Ji Hyo has set a new standard for actresses when it comes to variety shows, it’s okay to let loose and have fun, to be one of the boys & not just there to look pretty.

    I like Song Ji Hyo i’ve seen her mainly in Running Man, her and the cast of Running Man are great together.The only acting i’ve her seen her is in JYJ’s music video “In Heaven” and the music video itself is beautifully shot.

    I liked her since seeing her in Goong.  I thought she was so pretty and talented.  She gave that second lead layers so that I couldn’t hate her characterization for her flaws but understand her. 

    My respect and love began with her in Running Man.  I love that she can turn up without makeup (and sometimes without even combing her hair) and remain unfazed/unconcerned. However like many girls when she decides to glam up, she looks beautiful.  As a woman who works and runs the house, sometimes I don’t look my best but she reminded me that it doesn’t matter, that I know when I need to, I don’t look too bad.  There’s a time for work and a time for knocking them dead.

    However my favourite aspect is that she never makes it about her gender. I know that many people see her part in RM as ‘one of the boys’ and like her for that but to me it isn’t so.  I find that she just treats them and herself as team mates, that her gender and theirs has nothing to do with their ability to perform well.  Being a woman doesn’t mean she has to be meek nor does she hold any expectations of them for being men.  ‘They are equally running men.’  It’s a philosophy I try to carry to, to view people first before I assume anything of them by their gender. 

    Like many celebrities actresses, she gets a lot of flak from netizens but I hope that she remains strong and only find success upon success.  Love her!

    I hated her in Princess Hours and Jumong but I absolutely love her in RunningMan. It’s funny when she loses her temper,I cant forget when she was so angry because they put her weight on the screen and Yoo Jaesuk was pulling her.

    My favorite Ji-Hyo moment was probably in Running Man ep 77 when IU is singing and everyone has to rush out of their hotel rooms.  JiHyo looked ridiculously unkempt, and I loved it. The staff was more concerned for her image than she was.  Fighting!

    I personally think one of JiHyo’s best performances was as the ballerina in the horror movie, Wishing Stairs. She plays one of the two main characters opposite of Park HanByul and is just amazing.

    Prior to RM, I was kinda apathetic towards Song Ji Hyo, having only seen her on Princess Hours.  On Running Man, I really appreciated her genuineness and competitiveness.  I liked the fact that she can win with her smarts and strength without having to use her prettiness and “aegyo”.  

  • ersby

    I’ve read that she fell out of favour after Frozen Flower and Sex is Zero 2 because of their sexual nature, and there does seem to be quite a big gap after 2008 in her filmography. Is this right, or am I reading too much into things? It did seem that her appearance on Family Outing started to change that. Any thoughts on what happened to her career post-FF?

    Jihyo needs more episodes of her being in the same team with Minho and Siwon. I don’t like the way RM guys treat her lately, giving her the cold shoulder. Especially when there are idol girls as guest, Jihyo is usually pushed back, along with Easy Brothers -___-“
