After a whilrlwind of a run, the last episode of Dating Agency: Cyrano aired last night, bringing a close to the adventures of Gong Minyoung & Co. and the drama debut of our up-and-at-em shikshin, Sooyoung.
I think it’s safe to say Sooyoung exceeded all expectations with her performance – there was a little bit of awkwardness here are there but overall she did much better than many other idols who have tried their hand at acting and we were all pleasantly surprised to see how much she had prepared for the gig. Sooyoung was perfect for the role of Gong Minyoung and expressed her perfectly, her comedy was on beat and cleverly delivered, and most importantly her chemistry with fellow lead, Lee JongHyuk was absolutely ace. Whether you like Gong Minyoung and Seo Byunghoon together romantically or platonically, there is no denying that together they are adorable and hilarious.
Overall she gave an impressive performance in her first lead role and Dating Agency: Cyrano has been incredibly enjoyable. Sooyoung-ah, we’re proud of you!
After the airing of the last episode, Sooyoung hit the official Girls’ Generation website and left the following message for her fans, taking time to thank all of her co-stars, the staff, her members and fans:
As of today, it’s goodbye for ‘Gong Stone’ Minyoung ㅠㅅㅠ
While it is sad, for a not-so-long time
I feel that I’ve received overflowing love from you all..
So I was a very, very happy Minyoung ^ㅡ^
The atmosphere on set was very pleasant, and friendly seniors and colleagues..
As well as staff; thanks to them, it was always happy~ㅎㅎ
While only looking at the script, I couldn’t imagine the appearance of the client and target well.
But the cameo actors who made Cyrano real with living, moving characters..
They made each episode shine brightly^^
Thanks to that, whenever a new senior actor would come for each episode, Minyoung
learned and felt a lot from the sidelines. ㅎㅎ It felt like I’d listened to a long lectureㅎㅎ
The support fans sent
With filming through the night.. You were always a strength for me, so I was able to complete things well until the end. Thank you♥
Now, for my meeting with a new character some day!!
I’m going to bury Minyoung with Euijin deep in my heart~ㅎㅎ
I’m going to push back the sad feeling and am going to have my heart flutter until my heart’s content for the soon-to-happen Taiwan concert!! I can do that, right? ^0^
The love.support you sent me, I’ll become a Sooyoung who repays you with more^^~♥ ㅎㅎ
Because I’m sad~~ The photos I took while filming!! I’m going to reveal them +_+

Minyoung’s best friend, Cyrano member Ahrang!!!
Cute and kind Yoonwoo, hwaiting^^
On the day of the last shoot, SeoGong couple~~!!
The character of Seo Byung was possible because it was [played by] senior Lee Jonghyuk
And, because he was the opposing role, I think I was able to understand Minyoung ..
Senior Lee Jonghyuk, the best♥
Master, who was manly and cool until the end!
And Youngdal of the two-man collectors, Mingyo orabeoni (translator’s note: “orabeoni” is the equivalent of “oppa”)^^!!
All-around engineer and chic personality, Moojin!
Sekyung that I’m jealous of
Who received love from Ray and Ahrang, Yoonseo^^!!
With fresh Hyeri, Yeonjoo unnie^^♥The viewers and SONE who loved it until the end~~!!

Fellow member and leader, Taeyeon (who has actively been promoting Dating Agency: Cyrano since the start), also took the time to thank fans for supporting Sooyoung’s drama, uploading the following photo onto her instagram account:
After an outpouring of freak-outs from SONE (naturally), Taeyeon added, “SONE is the one who sent this to me though?? ^^ Thank You sone!!!!”
Fellow instageneration member, Sunny commented on the photo, “What do they think they’re doing?!”
As the show wrapped up, the tvN also uploaded some photos of Sooyoung preparing gifts for staff members of Dating Agency: Cyrano, showing her thoughtfulness and gratitude for their guidance. The gifts included signed CDs, cosmetics from Llang (which Sooyoung endorses) and hand picked clothing.
Well, Gong Minyoung! It’s been a great ride and we had a lot of fun! We’re sad to see you go but the good times will all be treasured 🙂
As for you, Choi Sooyoung, congratulations on a job well done, and we look forward to seeing you hit the screen again in any future acting ventures. Choi Actress Jjang!
