Kim Tae Ri Explains How She Changed After “The Handmaiden”
Kim Tae Ri recently participated in a photo shoot for High Cut magazine, where she talked about her various works and her changing mindset as an actress.
The actress first talked about working on hit scriptwriter Kim Eun Sook’s upcoming drama “Mister Sunshine.” She shared, “The script is very easy to absorb. Just by reading the lines, it was easy to imagine how the actor would act out those parts. She writes very well.”
With Kim Eun Sook known for her famous lines, Kim Tae Ri was asked if there would be any in the upcoming drama. She laughed and replied, “There definitely are. But they’re spoilers so I can’t say anything.”
On her recent film “Little Forest” reaching a breakeven point, the actress commented, “I feel proud. For ‘The Handmaiden,’ I was too much of a rookie, and for ‘1987,’ I felt less pressure because there were many amazing seniors who also appeared. But for ‘Little Forest,’ I felt a bit more desperate. I especially felt the need to do well, so nowadays, I feel really good.”
Kim Tae Ri also shared that she feels more responsibility now than during her “The Handmaiden” days. She explained that she used to think she was quite young, but she is at an age now where she can’t think that way anymore.
She added, “Putting age aside, I’m being paid for working now, so I can’t be careless. I can’t keep using young age as an excuse. During ‘The Handmaiden,’ I trusted that the production staff would make a good film on their own, but I can’t think that way anymore. I feel much more responsible now.”
