“Perseverance Goo Hae Ra” Min Hyo Rin: “Goo Hae Ra’s Story Sounded Just Like Mine”

At a press conference held for Mnet’s new music drama “Perseverance Goo Hae Ra,” Min Hyo Rin shared her resolve to show a new side of herself as an actress through her depiction of the main character Goo Hae Ra.

The actress said, “[Goo Hae Ra’s] story sounded just like mine. I don’t know if you are aware, but I have three failed records. I actually used to be a singer trainee. So I thought many times that [this story] is very similar to mine. I wanted to sing very badly but didn’t know where or how. And then I met this drama.”

She continued, “Until now, I have only shown a standoffish and cold side of me. I selected this drama because it gave me the opportunity to show off my more free and easy side.”

Min Hyo Rin will be taking on the role of Goo Hae Ra who dreams of becoming a singer in order to make known her late father’s compositions but cannot get signed to an agency. “Perseverance Goo Hae Ra” is about what happens when she decides to audition for “Superstar K.”

The first episode of “Perseverance Good Hae Ra” will air on January 9.
