Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung Shares Thoughts About Her Upcoming OCN Thriller Drama
Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung talked about OCN’s new thriller drama “Call It Like You See It” (literal title).
The drama is about a temperamental genius profiler and a detective with a photographic memory who track down a serial killer who was believed to be dead. Sooyoung will play detective Cha Soo Young, who has a photographic memory.
Sooyoung said, “I wanted to try out a genre drama one day, and I got a chance to do it with a good script and a good production crew. The character has a lot of charm, but our drama also has a profound and essential message. There are a lot of people who don’t say it as they see it these days. Cha Soo Young’s simple honesty of saying what she sees was charming to me because it seems to be a personality necessary in today’s times.”
Producing director (PD) Kim Hong Sun shared his reason for casting her. He said, “I watched the romantic comedy drama Sooyoung was in and thought she would be able to play various roles. She seemed to suit Cha Soo Young best, so she was the first one I offered the role to.”
Sooyoung also mentioned her co-stars Jang Hyuk and Jin Seo Yeon. She said, “I met Jin Seo Yeon for the first time, but I felt like I’ve known her for a long time. I met Jang Hyuk in ‘Money Flower‘ and thought I would like to work with him if I got the chance.”
She picked “Voice” as her favorite drama and explained, “Ever since I was little, I watched overseas investigation dramas and hoped to appear in a drama with such a story, art, and production. I am proud that we are making a series that is as interesting as foreign dramas. We are making a genre drama that is good in various ways.”
Sooyoung also revealed she had a lot of worries while playing the role of Chun Sung Hee in OCN’s 2016 drama “Squad 38.” She commented, “My character Chun Sung Hee was a character that needed explanation but was not explained enough, which led to dislike from the viewers. I studied a lot while playing the only realistic role in a drama that has elements of fantasy.”
“Call It Like You See It” will air in 2020.
