Kim Yoo Jung : “Romance Act with TOP? I Don’t Think I Can Do It because of Excitement”

You said you’re a fan of Big Bang, which member do you like?

I like them all, but TOP oppa’s voice is attractive. And, he also tries hard to become a singer. I like that sincere side.

If you were to act with him?
I want to try acting as brother and sister. I’m too young to act for romance. It’ll be strange. I can’t even imagine such situation. The act itself will be very exciting, don’t you think? Haha.
