Although singer Kim Ye Rim (Lim Kim) previously starred in ‘Shut Up Flower Boy Band‘ it appears she did not have much interest in acting until now. She revealed on the June 9th edition of KBS 2FM‘s ‘Jo Jung Chi & Jang Dong Min’s 2 O’Clock‘ that she was slowly becoming more and more interested in acting.

She said, “Before I became a singer, I had no thoughts on acting, but a lot of people around me kept talking about acting. That’s why I am more curious about it these days.”

Jang Dong Min said, “Looking at Kim Ye Rim’s face, I can tell she’s stubborn. That’s why I think she’d do well.”

What do you think about her expanding into acting? Did you like her performance in ‘Shut Up Flower Boy Band’?

After-School-UEE_1399766003_af_org

UEE revealed she wanted to try out various characters in her acting career!

During her interview with TenAsia, she revealed that she wanted to try different characters than her usual optimistic girls. She explained, “The words ‘she just looks nice’ were stimulating. Now I want to try evil roles, and I also want to try feminine, tender roles. I think I need a change.

She added, “When I wasn’t confident of my acting, I thought I should do roles that match well with my image. But after playing Kim Baek Won in ‘Golden Rainbow‘, I think it’s time to change. I’ve now played enough optimistic, reliable characters. I want to research and study more to be able to play more roles.

After ‘Golden Rainbow’ was over, the PD of the drama said, “UEE is always kind‘. She began to wonder if that was a compliment for an actress. She said, “Maybe it’s because I look round, or because I have an easy personality. I hear that often. But there is good and bad in everyone. I want to break away from the UEE that’s only nice and do other things.

She’s played the bad girl in ‘You’re Beautiful‘. How do you think she’d do as the antagonist?
