Lee Si Young opened up about the hard parts of playing her unique role in MBC’s new action-thriller drama “Lookout.”
On May 19, Lee Si Young attended the press conference for “Lookout” held at the MBC Golden Mouth Hall. The actress will be playing the role of Cho Su Ji, a former professional shooter, detective, as well as a mother who loses her daughter in an unsolved crime. Needless to say, the role involves quite a bit of action and emotional turmoil.
Lee Si Young disclosed, “The hardest part was conveying the emotions of a parent who lost a child.” But her interaction with child actress and on screen daughter Ham Na Young seems to be worth looking out for. “I would find myself imagining different situations to focus on my sadness [when filming] previous dramas, but surprisingly I was able to concentrate well this time. I imagined Ham Na Young and things worked out well.”
As a former amateur boxer, Lee Si Young also put her athletic side to use in the action-packed “Lookout.” She revealed, “I tried my best to carry out all the action scenes myself rather than using a body double.”
However, she confessed that she’s still has a strange chemistry with male lead Kim Young Kwang. “We’re a little awkward. We hate each other [on screen], but I don’t know how this hostile relationship will play out later on.”
The first episode of “Lookout” will air on May 22 at 10 p.m. KST.
