Actress Kim Ji Won talks about being compared to fellow “Descendants of the Sun” actress Song Hye Kyo.

Kim Ji Won, who is currently gaining attention for playing the second female lead in the popular drama, has often been compared to the lead actress Song Hye Kyo.

On her recent interview with media outlet Sports DongA, Kim Ji Won talks about the issue by saying, “I have never tried my best just so that I would not lose to someone. In a drama, I think that everyone should work in order to benefit one another.”

She further explains, “When my character does well, the opposing character would do the same, and vice versa. If the female lead is pretty, then I get the joy of just looking at her. I get the chance to feast my eyes this time around.”

Kim Ji Won also reveals more about Song Hye Kyo by saying, “I learned what kind of attitude an actress should have when she is on set. When I first met her, I was afraid and I was not sure how to act. In fact, she is very kind and childlike. When I would approach while being nervous, she would say to me, ‘Why are you like that? Just be yourself.’ When I filmed the scenes which were taxing on my body, she was the one who took care of me. I was really thankful.”

In another interview, the actress reveals her thoughts on the popular drama.
