Seohyun Explains Why She Uses Minimal Makeup In Upcoming Drama “Time”
During the July 20 press conference for MBC’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama “Time,” Seohyun explained her decision to go as minimal as possible with her character’s makeup.
She said, “Seol Ji Hyun is a character who has a very difficult life. Not only does she not have the time to [dress up or do her makeup], she’s is someone who lives paycheck to paycheck, so we decided to go with a little makeup as possible. I wanted to portray the character as realistically as possible.”
Seohyun added that she and her character have a lot in common. “The biggest commonality is that we are inherently optimistic, and also that we have a strong sense of survival.”
This is the actress’s first lead role for a miniseries. Seohyun said, “I feel a lot of responsibility. It’s not because of the difference between playing a supporting and lead character, but the fact that I have to portray someone’s life. I’m working very hard to express the deep emotions, particurly the depth of sadness, of the character as well as possible.”
“Time” is a drama about a man who does everything he can to help a woman whose life was ruined because of him. The drama is set to air on July 25, and will be available on Viki. In the meantime, watch the trailer below!
