Kim Tae Hee Shares Husband Rain’s Reaction To “Hi Bye, Mama” + Talks About Working With Child Actor Seo Woo Jin
The drama “Hi Bye, Mama” tells the story of Cha Yu Ri (played by Kim Tae Hee), who is able to return to her husband and daughter as a ghost for 49 days after dying five years prior.
Kim Tae Hee shared, “I kept motherhood and the love I have for my family, husband, and those around me as my focus.”
She added, “I also wanted to naturally portray Yu Ri’s bright, simple, and positive personality. At the beginning, I met up with the director, writer, and my co-stars as often as possible to perfect Yu Ri’s tone. I acted in accordance with Yu Ri’s emotions and I followed that flow to naturally become like Yu Ri. The script was written in a manner where I could act while genuinely feeling the emotions.”
When asked how her husband reacted to her emotional acting, she responded, “My husband just said that he couldn’t watch it because it was so sad.”
The actress also expressed admiration for child actor Seo Woo Jin, who gained a lot of attention for portraying a girl. Kim Tae Hee shared, “Woo Jin fully played the role of livening up the atmosphere on set.”
She continued, “I was so proud watching him act so happily and he was so pretty that I automatically fell in love, which was a lot of help when acting. As we were filming, I would think, ‘What would I do if it wasn’t for Woo Jin?'”
Regarding a boy portraying the role of her daughter, Kim Tae Hee shared, “He really impressively acted as female Seo Woo. For his age, he is really calm, smart, and responsible. His ability to focus was so good that he had the least bloopers out of all the actors.”
