Park Bo Young of "Strong Woman Do Bong Soon" recently sat for an interview with Sports Seoul. In the said interview, Park Bo Young revealed how she feels about her fame.

As reported by Koreaboo, Park Bo Young revealed to Sports Seoul that despite her current fame status because of her current drama "Strong Woman Do Bong Soon" on JTBC, she still does not think that this is the peak of her career. Park Bo Young strongly believes that 2008 was when her career peaked.

Park Bo Young told in the interview how she believes that her 2008 movie "Speedy Scandal" was where she peaked the most. She starred with "My Sassy Girl's" Cha Tae Hyun in the movie.

During the interview, Park Bo Young was also questioned to whether she felt stress in keeping up her fame. Her answer revealed how "Speedy Scandal" co-star Cha Tae Hyun taught her how not to expect that one's fame will continue to go up.

"Throughout your life, you won't work on another production with over 8.3 million viewers. If you try and overcome that, you'll become distressed," said Tae Hyun towards Park Bo Young. "From now on, we shouldn't think about how to go higher from here, but rather how to slowly descend."

Because of Tae Hyun's "life teachings", Park Bo Young expected how her popularity will go down after the movie.  "...I'm looking for ways to slow down that descent."

Park Bo Young also told the magazine how thankful she is for the high ratings "Strong Woman Do Bong Soon" has achieved during the past month. However, she accepts the fact that fame is always temporary.

Because of "Strong Woman Do Bong Soon", Park Bo Young - together with co-stars Hyungsik- was ranked as top actors in brand value for the month of April. According to All Kpop, their co-star Jang Hee Jin was also included by the Korean Institute of Corporate Reputation.

Aside from Park Bo Young, other actors/actresses such as Kim Young Chul, Kim Jae Won, and Kwon Sang Woo were also ranked by the institute as top actors/actresses in brand value. Actors/actresses such as Lee Young Un, Kwon Yool, and Go So Young were also ranked by the institute.
