It’s been revealed earlier that Sojin of Girl’s Day was to play a role in the upcoming drama, “The Greatest Marriage.”
Sojin will play the role of Lee Yu Ri, also known as a “Gangnam Charm Girl” with the best looks in town. She is also a young woman of a known rich family that also hangs around the young heirs of other elite families after she graduates from college.
On this first day, it was revealed that despite the fact that she was nervous for the filming, she successfully transformed into Lee Yu Ri as the shooting began. Behind stories say that once the filming began she was able to show natural acting and even got an OK sign by Oh Jong Rok director on the first take, which brought applause from members of the staff.
After her first scene Sojin revealed her thoughts, saying “I’m so nervous and anxious that I don’t even know what’s going on. I’ll do my best to melt into the drama naturally. Despite the fact that it’s my first time acting, Director Oh Jong Rok helped me very much with support and acting tips, which helped me get relaxed for the scene. I think I got through it because of all the support from the staff members.” She continued, “When I got on stage as a member of Girl’s Day I transformed based on the different concepts that were made for the performances. It’s basically another transformation into actress Sojin but I want my acting to be so natural that people won’t notice that I’m a singer. Rather, I want them to think that I’m a rookie actress. I’ll do my best to portray the character of Yu Ri as I have drawn her out in my mind so please continue your support.”
A representative of the production company also commented, “Despite her busy schedule as a member of Girl’s Day, Sojin has been showing her passion for acting by getting acting lessons from an acting teacher. She exceeded everyone’s expectations with her natural acting and got a lot of compliments throughout the entire shooting. I think she is the next big ‘acting-dol’ (acting + idol) to be anticipated in the future.” It was also mentioned that she also took on the role of making a good atmosphere for filming on the set of the drama.
Meanwhile, TV Joseon’s “The Greatest Marriage” is a story about the relationships and marriage of four couples surrounding a woman who voluntarily becomes a single mother.
