Korean actress Park Shin Hye has revealed that she is dating but does it secretly.
She recently starred in the film "Heart Blackened" together with veteran actor Choi Min Sik and Ryu Jun-yeol which has earned $3.6 million at the Korean box office.
Park Shin Hye admitted that she dates in secret, explaining that "I don't think there's really a need to date publicly. I think it's necessary to separate personal matters from professional matters."
Regarding any plans to tie the knot, she said, "I'll just announce when I'm getting married" with a laugh.
She said she dreamed of getting married since she was young based on her observation of her parents.
"While watching my parents, I've dreamed of marriage [ever since I was young]. As I work hard, I'll develop an eye [for others], and won't that naturally develop into a relationship?" she said.
She started her showbiz career at a young age, starring in "Stairway to Heaven" in 2003. She has developed a clean image but said that she can get angry, too.
"Beyond not being an energizer, I am also not a person who lives like a machine. I am just like everyone else. Sometimes I cry and get angry. It's not that I don't get stressed from having a healthy image. All of a sudden, I became 'someone who seems like they would live only in an upright way,'" she said.
Being a celebrity, Park Shin Hye cannot do all things that she wants, explaining "I want to go to bars or clubs and have a drink too, and there have been times I've worried because I can't. However, there are more good things [as an actor], so I've learned to let it go."
She said her goal is to be remembered by fans and the public as a multi-faceted actress and not just a hallyu or Korean Wave star.
"I want to be an actor with various talents over than being a Korean Wave star. Not just as an actor, I have a desire to live well as a woman. I want to live a life not bound to certain descriptions. [I would like to be] a person who constantly grows and develops. But I don't know how long that will take," she said.
