EXO’s Chanyeol expressed admiration for Park Shin Hye’s and fellow member D.O.’s acting skills.

On the February 21 broadcast of tvN’s “Life Bar,” Chanyeol appeared as a guest along with “Memories of the Alhambra” co-stars Park Hoon, Han Bo Reum, and Lee Si Won.

About his on-screen older sister Park Shin Hye, Chanyeol said, “There was a time when Park Shin Hye was talking with the director and whether or not she should cry during a scene. I was watching her and thinking she was really great. She told the director she would cry and then began to do so as soon as filming began.”

He continued, “I don’t have a lot of acting experience, so I hadn’t seen this a lot before, but she suddenly cried like how people cry while talking in real life. She cried so realistically. She’s so good at acting, and I felt as if she were an acting machine.” He jokingly added, “She treated me well as if she were my real older sister, and I worried if that, too, was acting, since she’s so good at it.”    

Bringing up EXO’s D.O., who recently starred in “100 Days My Prince,” Super Junior’s Kim Heechul asked if the two members watched and talked about each other’s dramas. Chanyeol replied, “We didn’t watch each other’s dramas. This is how I feel, and it may be the case for Kyungsoo [D.O.] as well, but since he’s such a close friend, the image I have of him after knowing him for 10 years as Do Kyung Soo is so strong that it’s hard for me to immerse myself in the drama.”

He continued, “The members recently attended the VIP screening of ‘Swing Kids.’ I realized that his acting is nearly perfect now and not lacking at all. I saw him the next day for a scheduled event, and I praised him, and we continuously talked about it.”

“Life Bar” airs on Thursdays at 11 p.m. KST.
