SEOUL, July 22 (Yonhap) -- Kwon Eun-bin, a member of girl group CLC and actress, has been receiving positive responses for leaving a charming impression on young female viewers for her 'girl crush' character as Wang Young-ran in KBS 2TV's latest work "At a Distance, Spring Is Green."

Kwon expressed her affection for her role in the drama, saying, "Although Young-ran stays tough on the outside, she's actually warmhearted and has helped other characters grow as a person."

In "At a Distance, Spring Is Green," the fact that Wang Young-ran has secretly liked Nam Soo-hyun (played by Bae In-hyuk) for seven years despite being a character with a "cool" and tough mindset, has become another focal point in the coming of age drama.

"I was such a big fan of the original webtoon," Kwon said in a recent interview with Yonhap News Agency. "Unlike other youth dramas, 'At a Distance, Spring Is Green' tries to bring out the darker sides of young adults, which helped me feel more comforted at times."

"The line where Yeo Jun (played by Park Ji Hoon) says 'I've only heard about spring, because we're always in the winter,' sounded both shocking yet good to me," the 21-year-old actress said. "Right now, everyone's having a hard time since we can't go out as much as we want to. I thought there were many scenes in this drama where people could sympathize with and be comforted at times like this."

"Additionally, the majority of people in their 20s have trouble with relationships. We tend to be cautious of how we act towards the person we love because they may not reciprocate the same feelings. I felt myself sympathizing with scenes related to this in our drama a lot. I thought the drama was realistic too, in a way, since it reflected the conflicted minds of people in their 20s who want to act mature and take risks but are still scared to take on such huge responsibilities," she added.

The actress also talked about the benefits and drawbacks of working in the entertainment field from a young age.

"I began my career in the entertainment industry since I was young, and I've somehow been trained to not make a big deal no matter what the situation is. I have learned that this can come as both an advantage and disadvantage for me because I was able to grow a stable mindset, however there were emotions that were hard for me to feel. Still, I think it is better for me to stay strong."

"I also think spring has started for my character Young-ran," Kwon continued. "This is the first time Young-ran has opened her heart to Soo-hyun, so I think that's enough for her. Regardless of whether Young-ran ends up with Soo-hyun, it's a big improvement for my character to have even expressed her feelings for the person she loves."

Kwon Eun-bin, who has been active as both a singer and actress, said, "When you perform music on stage, your expression should be big enough for the audience, however when acting, I was able to portray more detailed and emotional expressions. Since the camera typically focuses on my eyes, it was more important for me to deliver emotions there than through my body movements."

"I was glad that the viewers were able to differentiate my image as an idol member and an actress in this drama. I believe it's an advantage to be able to show such diverse versions of myself," she added.

"I want to grow into an actress who is irreplaceable. I hope to be able to develop my own color as an actress 10 years from now. Of course, I'm still young, so I want to make mistakes and grow from them. For people like the characters in 'At a Distance, Spring Is Green,' I want to let them know that it's still okay to wander around their youth."
