She's all kinds of cool.

Korean actress Park Shin Hye is a certified Hallyu superstar—with a string of wildly popular dramas like Pinocchio and The Heirs (among many others) under her belt, you can bet we were beyond excited when local brand Bench announced that she'd be their freshest face! Last week, Shin Hye sat down with the media in Manila and chatted about everything from her fashion choices to future projects. Read on!

1. This is her favorite look from the whole #EverydayBench campaign!

"My personal style is actually very mannishI'm very fond of pants! My favorite look from the campaign would have to be the one where I'm wearing an off-shoulder top and black wide-leg trousers. I'm wearing a dress today, so this is a special occasion; I'm usually quite boyish and casual."

2. Her new favorite thing is surfing.

"I recently tried water sports! I tried to learn surfing; in my spare time I like to exercise and keep active so I found it fascinating."

3. She's a sweater weather kinda girl.

"I prefer winter over the summer, because I'm not very good with hot weather! In the summer, everything gets shorter and a little skimpier, but dressing for winter is what I prefer. I like the way I get to style myself: I get to layer, and it's a lot more fun."

4. She started the ShinHye Center for children in Manila.

"I started working around children in Ghanathat's how I started my philanthrophy activities. Then I started to feel that Ghana is so far away, and it would be hard for me to visit and see the kids. So I was wondering how I could help out kids in a location that was more accessible, that was closer to Korea. Then I heard from a Korean preacher who was living in the Philippines, and he suggested that there's a community here where I can help out children in need. Of course it fit perfectly in the criteria that I was looking for: it's closer to home, I can come often and visit and help out." Editor's note: the ShinHye Center is a long-term project that aims to help destitute children through educational activities.

5. She'll be back on the big screen very, very soon!

"I just finished shooting a movie last May, and it'll be opening in November! The last time you saw me onscreen, I was a doctor—this time, I'll be playing a lawyer."
