Suzy hurt by expectations



Suzy of girl group Miss A says her nicknames - “The Nation’s First Love” and “The Nation’s Younger Sister” - can be quite a burden as she tries to live up to those expectations.

Suzy shared her thoughts on the SBS talk show “Healing Camp” on Monday, talking about her debut in the entertainment scene in 2010 as a girl group member.

“I think it hurts when people just ignore me, saying that I’m just a kid, but still expect me to act like a grown-up,” said Suzy.

“I have suffered from a sort of depression.”

However, what made the audience burst into tears came later as Suzy watched a video letter from her parents that was pre-recorded for the show.

Her dad, a taekwondo instructor, said he was particularly strict on her when she was young because she looked so cute and he was worried that she might be harassed.

“Now that I think about it, I am sorry,” he said. “My daughter, I love you.”

Her mother added that she was especially proud of Suzy’s role in the film “Architecture 101” (a hit romantic-drama from last year) and went to see the movie in a theater alone more than 10 times.
