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?
