Im Soo Hyang Shares Why She Chose To Star In New Drama “When I Was The Most Beautiful”
Im Soo Hyang talked about how the script had captivated her. She said, “The moment I received it, I read all four volumes of the script in one sitting. It felt moving and painful like reading a romance novel while it also seemed like watching a refreshing film about youth on a summer night. That’s why I was so curious about the next episode.”
She went on to describe her character. “Oh Ye Ji is someone who makes people want to protect her,” Im Soo Hyang said. “She receives help from the people around her, and Seo Hwan and Seo Jin protect her a lot, but beyond how delicate she is, Oh Ye Ji’s dignity and self-confidence are strong. It’s attractive how she tries to overcome everything and doesn’t let fate sway her.”
Im Soo Hyang compared Oh Ye Ji to her characters from “My ID Is Gangnam Beauty” and “Graceful Family.” She said, “I’ll be showing off a more feminine and brilliant side to me that is different from the characters Mi Rae and Seok Hee. Please look forward to how similar I’ll be to Oh Ye Ji that viewers won’t be able to tell who is Im Soo Hyang and who is Oh Ye Ji.”
The drama’s production team commented, “Im Soo Hyang’s acting doesn’t need any explanation as she portrays Oh Ye Ji, who is delicate like a single wildflower but also very charming. Viewers will be able to see Im Soo Hyang’s true acting abilities as Oh Ye Ji, a character who always goes for it, so please look forward to the drama.”
“When I Was the Most Beautiful” premieres on August 19 at 9:30 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
