Actress Lee Chung Ah Says She Was Treated Differently After Revealing Her Relationship
Actress Lee Chung Ah recently revealed that the atmosphere around her changed after her relationship went public.
On October 15, Lee Chung Ah attended the official announcement of the new movie, “The Five,” at the CGV theater at Apgujeong, Seoul. When asked what has changed for her since her debut days, she replied, “First of all, I’m in my 30s now. I’ve had my difficulties over the years, and I’m now in a relationship, so a lot has changed.”
Lee Chung Ah said, “I wanted to show a different side of myself than before, so I decided to do a thriller for the first time,” and she drew laughter from the attendees, saying, “It’s an opportunity to broaden my range as an actor, and I’m planning on desperately promoting the movie.”
Kim Sun Ah, who plays the main character, related a little about the film set, saying, “Due to the nature of Lee Chung Ah’s character, she’s the only one who got to use the reflector for close-ups. Park Hyo Joo and I were always a little jealous about that.” She continued, “Whenever Lee Chung Ah came on screen, it was beautiful, but when were on, it was always dull.”
She then talked about how after Lee Chung Ah publicly revealed her relationship, things changed. One of the staff members jokingly said that she doesn’t get the reflector anymore, so she and Park Hyo Joo played along, “So now Lee Chung Ah is going to become [dull] like us?”
Lee Chung Ah confirmed, “I really got nothing. Everything changed. After the revealment of my relationship, I had one last scene left to shoot, and the lights and cameras weren’t even on me,” throwing the whole room into laughter.
“The Five” is a thriller about Eun Ah (Kim Sun Ah), who, after losing her family to a ruthless killer, gathers a group of five and puts her whole life on the line to take her revenge. The movie will premiere on November 14.
