miss A’s Fei Discusses Her Acting, Ambitions, and Solo Debut With Marie Claire
miss A’s Fei recently had an interview and pictorial with Marie Claire magazine. The singer is embarking upon acting with her role in a joint Korean and Chinese web drama called “Swan.” She will be acting as an intern in a plastic surgery clinic. Her character is described as a career woman who is bold and has great confidence. Previously, the multi-talented star has impressed with her stage performances, culinary skills, and sports dance. Having had great success in her previous endeavors, it appears highly likely that she will succeed in acting as well.
In the accompanying interview the star answers questions about her current acting project. Even though filming hasn’t started yet, she is busy constantly reading and practicing her script. In order to prepare for the drama, the singer has been taking acting lessons.
When asked about whether she is trying to change anything about herself, she answers, “I’m usually very shy, so I am trying to be more bold. When acting you have to be able to suddenly blurt out, ‘I love you.’ With my old personality that would have been impossible. I also try to greet staff members. Since staff members move around for actors, I think I should talk to them first to make them feel more comfortable.”
Since the singer has taken on many challenges and appeared on a various variety shows, she discusses her ambitions and says, “I didn’t know, but I am a person with a lot of ambition. I’m a celebrity and there are many who look up to celebrities. But if I do something wrong then it is very embarrassing. I really can’t handle those kind of things.”
Then she is asked if there is anything else she wants to try besides acting. The budding actress replies, “Business! My dream is to become a boss,” as she laughs. She continues, “I don’t have any specific business ideas, but I want to try it before I die.”
The singer also shares some wise words and comments, “My friend told me that people always rise and fall. It is not possible for someone to only go up nor to only go down. Life can be separated into adolescence, middle age, and old age. Someone who studies hard and becomes class president when they are young will not always win victory after victory when they are older. Also, a middle-aged person could live a hard life, but live happily after their children become successful. Life always goes up and down like that. I believe that if I endure difficult times, good times will surely come. Since I am in charge of taking care of my family, I think about how I can’t fall [since others are depending on me].
Proving to be a filial daughter, the mature singer reveals how similar she is to her mother. However, she also discloses that she cried recently after having a big fight with her mom. Fortunately, the fight is over as she made up with her mother. As for the last time she laughed, the miss A member talks about when she met her friends in China. Although she has become a famous K-Pop star, she was relieved to feel like nothing had changed between her and her old friends.
For the final question, she is asked about any regrets about being unable to do something. She candidly answers, “I wish we could do more promotions as miss A. We typically release one album in a year. I’m a bit sad about that. I think I shine the most when I’m on stage as miss A. If there is no miss A, there is no Fei. I also want to release a solo album someday. I haven’t made any plans regarding it, but I would like to do jazz music.”
