Son Ye Jin Describes Her Passion For Acting And Thoughts On Portraying Older Characters In Her 20s
On December 9, the cast enjoyed a barbecue dinner with the actress.
Son Ye Jin said, “I filmed about 30 films. There are many times when I just want to rest. So I think to myself, ‘When this project ends, I’m going to rest no matter what.’ But I end up looking at scripts again.”
She continued, “I feel like I shouldn’t let this one pass me by. I think I have a lot of passion and ambitions. That’s how 20 years passed by.”
Lee Seung Gi said, “Didn’t you receive the Best Lead Actress Award at the Blue Dragon Awards for the 2008 film ‘My Wife Got Married?’ Weren’t you young at the time?” Son Ye Jin replied, “I was 27 years old.”
Lee Seung Gi continued, “It probably wasn’t an easy decision to play the role of a married woman as a 27-year-old actress.” Son Ye Jin responded, “When I was 24 years old, I played the role of a woman who had an affair in ‘April Snow.’ At 25, I played the role of a divorcée in ‘Alone in Love.'”
When BTOB’s Yook Sungjae commented, “That must’ve been a really big challenge,” she said, “Now that I look back at it, I didn’t think that it was a huge challenge. I don’t think I had any fears about how to portray something I was unfamiliar with.”
