Kim Yoon Ji Talks About Changing From NS Yoon-G To Becoming An Actress
Actress Kim Yoon Ji opened up for an interview and a photo shoot with BNT.
During the interview, she talked about the switch from being the singer NS Yoon-G to being the actress Kim Yoon Ji. She said, “I think my image to the public was rather strong and tough when I was NS Yoon-G. Now I want to be seen in a more lovely and feminine image.”
When she was asked why she made the change to become an actress, she said, “I was a trainee for a short period of time, and I grew every time I released an album during the past seven years while performing as a singer. I always had the dream to become an actress. I wanted to devote myself into acting before it was too late.”
Since she is in the same agency as Hyun Bin, she was asked whether she knew him before signing with the agency. She said, “I first met him during the meeting with the agency. He is a very nice person. He gives lots of good advice, and buys us food.”
She recently finished filming for SBS’s drama “The Last Empress,” appearing as a junior musical actress who picks on Jang Nara‘s character. She said, ” I was happy to film with the talented senior actor and singer Jang Nara. I eagerly showed the fangirl side of myself during break time.” She also added that although it was hard playing a bad character, she was eventually able to become comfortable.
Kim Yoon Ji also talked about her ideal type. She said, “I don’t think I have an ideal type anymore now that I’m 31 years old. I like people who have similar thoughts and beliefs as myself.” She added, “I’m not a person who is full of aegyo. It was surprising to learn about aegyo after coming to Korea. Now I have more aegyo. I think I’m more comfortable doing aegyo to women than to men.”
