Im Soo Jung Discusses Her New Role In “Search: WWW” And Chemistry With Jang Ki Yong
“Search: WWW” will center around portal sites and search engines, telling the story of women who work within them and the men who are after these women’s hearts. The drama sets to shed light on the competitive reality of search engines.
In the drama, Im Soo Jung plays workaholic Bae Ta Mi, a strategic manager at Korea’s No. 1 portal site Unicon who is always observing people to know, “What are people searching the most and what are people interested in?” At the press conference, she stated, “I sympathize with the stories of the women who work at portal sites. I’m expecting [the drama] to receive a lot of love from viewers from their 20s through 40s.”
Im Soo Jung emphasized the charms of her new character and said, “I thought she was a new character I have never seen in a drama before. She is goal-oriented and has a desire to succeed. However, she is weak in front of love. Simply looking at that aspect may make her seem familiar, but she is more outspoken and speaks roughly than you might think. I thought the story of the three amazing women and their partners was charming.”
The actress also mentioned that she has many similarities with Bae Ta Mi. She shared, ” Her thoughts of marriage and relationships are similar to mine, and so is her desire to achieve success in her career. As a single woman and as a working actress, I felt a lot of sympathy. Rather, I was thankful that the character Bae Ta Mi came to me. I think it’s a really happy opportunity. I think a lot of actresses will find her to be an attractive character.”
Im Soo Jung then talked about her chemistry with Jang Ki Yong. She started, “I am working together with [Jang Ki Yong] after meeting him for the first time through this drama. He is a quiet, calm type for his age, but there is a side of him that makes him really feel like an older brother.” Then she added, “In the drama, [Jang Ki Yong] is ten years younger than me. Rather than showing the simple fantasy of a younger man, [Jang Ki Yong and his character] have high synchronization, so we are showing good teamwork and chemistry.”
Lastly, Im Soo Jung commented, “There are many scenes that female viewers will love. I am confident.”
“Search: WWW” premieres on June 5 at 9:30 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
