During the drama’s press conference held on May 12, Seohyun talked about the burden of taking on a lead role for the very first time. “I feel a lot of responsibility for starring as the lead character in a 50-episode drama. However, I think this feeling of burden is necessary because it leads to self-discipline and hard work. I think it’s also a driving force,” she explained.
She then expressed that her goal was to be acknowledged as an actress.
When talking about her partner Ji Hyun Woo, she said, “I think he’s really reliable. I watched all of his past productions. It’s really exciting that I’m working with such a great actor.”
Ji Hyun Woo also shared how he felt about working with Seohyun, saying, “Even though I haven’t acted in many scenes with her yet, I can tell she has a genuine passion for acting. I really look forward to it.”
“Bad Thief, Good Thief” will air its first episode on May 13 at 10 p.m. KST. You can check out the character posters here.
