Kim Go Eun Describes Her “Little Women” Character, Shares Praise For Co-Stars Nam Ji Hyun And Park Ji Hu, And More
Kim Go Eun is the gorgeous cover model of Marie Claire Korea’s October issue!
As Chanel’s ambassador, Kim Go Eun teamed up with the luxury brand to style lovely fall and winter looks in her new pictorial. In the following interview, the actress spoke about her new drama “Little Women” where she plays Oh In Joo, the eldest of three sisters and an ordinary accountant who unexpectedly finds herself involved in the disappearance of a 70 billion won (approximately $52.2 million) slush fund.
“I’m a big fan of writer Jung Seo Kyung and director Kim Hee Won,” Kim Go Eun shared of the veteran hitmakers behind “Little Women.” “That’s why there was no reason to turn down an appearance. The script was also incredibly fun.”
To describe her character Oh In Joo, Kim Go Eun commented, “In a numbers fight, she’s the only character who doesn’t use her brain and instead acts transparently, confronting things with her body. Although it appears like she’s being swept away somewhere, she actually moves forward being more firm than anyone else.”
Despite only being a few episodes in, viewers of “Little Women” have already been praising the tense progression, detailed storyline, and ensemble chemistry between on-screen sisters Kim Go Eun, Nam Ji Hyun, and Park Ji Hu. Kim Go Eun confidently remarked, “It’s important to show your best, but I believe that an ensemble arises when you watch, listen, and respond to each other.”
She then praised her co-stars sharing, “Ji Hu is an incredibly bold person. It’s easy to withdraw when you’re faced with a scary situation or a situation that doesn’t happen the way you wanted it to, but it was cool to watch Ji Hu say, ‘Ah, I don’t know,’ and just do it.” Kim Go Eun added, “Also, Ji Hyun is like a big boat. It appears to be moving calmly, but within that, there’s an incredibly strong person. That’s why I was able to act with trust.”
Kim Go Eun concluded her interview sharing, “I think being an actor is a career where you have to endlessly doubt yourself. You have to be vigilant about the moment you believe you are right and consider that to be the most dangerous.”
