Lee Min Jung Shares Thoughts On What Family Means To Her + Why “Once Again” Was So Popular
Last year, the actress earned rave reviews and enjoyed sky-high viewership ratings for her hit KBS 2TV drama “Once Again,” in which she starred opposite Lee Sang Yeob as Dr. Song Na Hee.
When asked about the drama’s success, Lee Min Jung humbly remarked, “I was able to put on an acting performance that received good reviews thanks to the good energy I received from my co-stars and colleagues who worked with me [on the drama].”
She added, “Because the story was about things like love of family, marriage, divorce, and maternal love—common things that we often see and that happen around us, to people we know—I had a deep understanding of [the story] I was acting out, and I was able to relate to the character very quickly.”
As for what her family means to her in real life, Lee Min Jung shared, “I think of my family as my reason for living and my source of motivation.”
Finally, the actress revealed her hopes for the year ahead. “Moving past 2020, which was a hard year for everyone,” said Lee Min Jung, “I hope that we can become healthier and happier in 2021.”
“I’m filming my first movie in a long time [this year],” she continued. “I hope that we can successfully wrap up filming without any problems, and I hope we can all see each other at the movie theater!”
