Actress Park Shin-hye said she "learned how to deal with men" through her friendship with older actress Chae Jung-an on an entertainment program that will be broadcast Tuesday.

"I learned a lot through my 'eonni' (an older sister figure). I learned how to deal with men," said Park about Chae.

Chae, 37, is perhaps best-known for starring in the 2007 hit TV drama "Coffee Prince."

Park, 25, made the remarks during filming for a Korean TV variety show, "Some Guys, Some Girls." Broadcaster SBS released the information Monday, a day before the broadcast date.

Chae said she first met Park when the younger actress was about 20.

"Since she was so young at the time, I worried when she would become a woman," said Chae during the discussion about love, dating and marriage.

"I think I worried unnecessarily. She already knows how to meet (guys)," said Chae, to which Park showed surprise and reacted defensively.

Park made her acting debut at age 13 as a child actress in the 2003 romantic TV drama "Stairway to Heaven."

Park shared a group photo from the set, including Chae, on Instagram, Sunday.

"You're the best, Chae Jung-an," said Park on Instagram.

Other women in the televised discussion include actress Jang Hee-jin, model Goo Jae-yee, shoe designer Lee Bonnie, and florist Hwang Bo-hyeon.

The episode of "Some Guys, Some Girls," will air on SBS on Tuesday at 11:15 p.m.
