Kim Da Mi Talks About Her Upcoming Films, Gives Advice To Women In Their 20s, And More
Kim Da Mi has landed the cover of Cosmopolitan Korea magazine’s latest issue!
After her classy and chic pictorial, Kim Da Mi shared a little more about herself and her upcoming projects in an interview.
The interviewer mentioned that Kim Da Mi’s fans had predicted her Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to be INFP or INFJ. She replied, “Joan of Arc, an artist with a lot of curiosity…I guess that’s INFP and ISFP.” With a laugh she added, “How did they guess that right?”
After sweeping the rookie awards for her roles in both films and dramas, Kim Da Mi is set to appear next in a remake of the Chinese film “SoulMate” (working title).
When asked about nerves and feeling pressure, Kim Da Mi shared, “Heading into a new project is always so enjoyable. I enjoy meeting lots of new people. On one hand, I do worry what will happen if I cannot live up to how much people like me. However, I know I can’t sink into these thoughts so I leave it in one part of my heart and just enjoy myself. I really liked the original of the film ‘SoulMate,’ which begins filming soon. My character is very charming so I’m looking forward to it. I think ‘The Witch 2’ will come after that.”
Kim Da Mi, who turned 25 years old this year, was later asked what she would tell her 20-year-old self. With a laugh she replied, “‘Play more.’ Back then, I did meet up with my friends often and go out to play, but I want to try playing even more.”
The actress also shared the biggest concern of her twenties. She said, “These days I have thoughts like, ‘Which decision will allow me to do well?’ In ‘Itaewon Class,’ [my character] Yi Seo had a line like this. ‘Life is just continuously making decisions. It’s curating the result that matches up with your values. That’s what people call a good choice, and the correct answer.’ I’ve thought about it and everything really is just constant decision-making.”
The interviewer asked Kim Da Mi what she would recommend to women in their twenties and thirties and she responded, “Although it’s hard to pick just one thing, as someone of the same generation, these days I try to think a lot about myself in order to find the lifestyle that suits me best. I think that women of this generation must also have the need to look within and find a happy lifestyle amidst their busy lives.”
