8. Before she was filming kiss scenes with Yoon Seung Ho in 4th Period Mystery, she brushed her teeth many times until her gums bled because she was afraid her mouth has bad odour.
9. She went to Han River Park in the middle of the night to practice screaming and kicking her legs just to get into Ha Chun Hwa’s spirit (her role in Sunny). Since her house is near to Han River Park, she just naturally went there to practice during midnight and didn’t even feel afraid at all.
10. She injured her finger and her right wrist’s ligament a bit during filming for the fighting scene in Sunny.
