Call her anything, just don't call her the "Second Suzy"! AOA's Seolhyun has said she is fed up of being compared to the popular Miss A singer.

The girl group's 20-year-old starlet revealed that's not fond of being referred as the a similar second version of the nation's sweetheart (and commercial queen), Suzy.

The AOA songstress was at a press conference for KBS′ upcoming new series Orange Marmalade at the Grand Hotel in Yeouido, Seoul, on May 12, when she was asked about the Miss A idol.

Seolhyun said, "First of all I'm grateful that many people see me that way," but added, "However, I would rather people see me as I am than be referred to a second version of something else."

In Orange Marmalade, Seolhyun stars as Baek Mari - a socially withdrawn teenage girl, who is in fact a vampire, but wishes to become a normal student.

For the role, the AOA star is said to have gone on a strict, liquid-only diet to achieve a slim figure, as well as practice the piano.

"Baek Mari is a character who lives only on drinking blood. I lost weight trying to create that effect. I only ate things that I could drink." says Seolhyun.

KBS’ Orange Marmalade begins airing on Friday, 15 May, at 22:35 KST.
