Kim So Eun Talks About Her Character In New Romance Drama “Three Bold Siblings”
Kim So Eun has shared her thoughts on her role in KBS 2TV’s upcoming drama “Three Bold Siblings”!
“Three Bold Siblings” is a new romance drama starring Im Joo Hwan as Lee Sang Joon, an A-list actor who is the eldest son of his family. When he gets into an unexpected accident during filming, he is reunited with Kim Tae Joo (Lee Ha Na), his first love from elementary school, who is also the eldest of her siblings and grew up sacrificing everything for her family.
Kim So Eun will also star in the drama as Kim So Rim, the middle child of the Kim family and Kim Tae Joo’s younger sister, while Lee Yoo Jin will play their younger brother Kim Geon Woo.
Describing why she was initially drawn to the drama, Kim So Eun recalled, “When I first received the script, I found both the story of the three siblings’ growth and the character of So Rim to be really fun and appealing.”
“I’m the eldest daughter in my family in real life, and because my younger sister is a lot like So Rim,” she continued, “I was able to relate to So Rim while thinking about my younger sister.”
Summing up her character, Kim So Eun said, “Kim So Rim is the second oldest of the three siblings, and her job is a pilates instructor. Although she’s overshadowed by her older sister Kim Tae Joo and younger brother Kim Geon Woo, both of whom excelled at their studies, she’s a smart cookie who’s decisive, clever, and resourceful, and she’s also a friendly, sociable character with a cheerful charm.”
As for how she prepared for the role, the actress revealed, “I once did pilates for about three years in the past. I stopped doing pilates after that, but I picked it up again in order to play So Rim.”
When asked to name the scene that stood out the most in her memory, Kim So Eun replied, “My first appearance in the drama is a pilates group scene, and I spent a lot of time figuring out how I could do a better job with the scene. I think my efforts paid off in the final result, so I felt the most rewarded by that scene.”
Finally, the actress spoke fondly about her experience taking on the role of Kim So Rim, noting, “Because I’m the eldest daughter in real life, I was able to experience the life and feelings of a second-oldest child that I’d never felt before, and that was fun and new.”
“Three Bold Siblings” will premiere on September 24 at 8 p.m. KST.
