      ehh i don't see anything special about her...sure she can do a lot, but most of the stuff she is mediocre at most everything she does. i'm not impressed with her singing, she was a pretty bad actress in BOF, and the songs she composed are so-so. i don't find her extraordinarily beautiful either like many other korean actresses. and i haven't read her book so i can't judge her writing...but out of everything, i'm most impressed with her art. lol she has some really cool paintings...

      I once wrote about what I thought about Ku Hye Sun's many talents, I said that -- When God was handing out talent He moved Ku Hye Sun to the front of the line.I'm an older person and I've never seen anyone with her range of abilities, I only wish I could say that directly to her.

      I wrote to someone once before about Ku Hye Sun and how I felt about her talents. I stated that - When God was handing out talent he moved Ku Hye Sun to the front of the line. I'm an older person but I haven't seen anyone with her range of abilities - I truly admire her. I wish I could tell her directly.
