Actress Kang Sora shed tears during an interview she recently had regarding her drama “Misaeng.”
“This is the first time I entrusted myself to the project without any greed. There wasn’t anything in the script that didn’t make sense to me, so I only had the ‘pleasant’ worry of how to act out the role. I chose this role because I thought I wouldn’t be able to do it if it wasn’t now, and I wasn’t expecting the reactions to be so great. I felt like all my difficult times until now were all paid off at once.”
Kang Sora’s character in “Misaeng,” Ahn Young Yi, was a talented intern with a lot of potential who struggled against the patriarchal system. To study her role, Kang Sora even tried going to a corporate workplace.
During the interview, she talked about how she kept her hair long, as opposed to the original webtoon character, who had her hair short. “In the webtoon, she has short hair, but I chose long hair for the drama. In the flashback sequence, she has short hair, and it represents Young Yi’s desire to be acknowledged by her father. Her having long hair now represents that she has cut ties with her father. Young Yi seems perfect, almost surreally so, but she’s bad at interpersonal relationships and you can say that it’s because of her father. She had a lot of wounds on the inside.”
