Go Ah-sung finds the right suit at the age of 23

2015/09/13 Source

Actress Go Ah-sung might be an intern in the movie but she's an experienced actress in Chungmuro.

She first came out in 2006 with the movie "The Host" and continued to appear here and there for the next 10 years. She's starred in "Snow Piercer", "Thread of Lies" and such as a little girl but in "The Office", she finally plays a role fit for her age.

Go Ah-sung is an important key to the mystery and a character that the story revolves around. She takes up much of the movie as she faces most of the characters in the movie and is the one and only star. She said, "I am very happy with what I did so far. It was hard to express a character in a short amount of time but this time I had many opportunities to". Lee Mi-rae's various personalities brought out the solidness and quality of the movie. "Starring in the same movie doesn't mean you meet all the cast but this time, I did. I am lucky".

"The Office" Go Ah-sung shows the typical example of the weak. "This is a new kind of character and that's what got me interested. Most of the characters I've played are socially weak characters with strong hearts on the inside. However, Mi-rae was a strong one from head to toe. I related to her pretending to be strong and bold. However, it was sad to know that she had nothing to put forward besides being loyal. I turned out to be the same kind of person. I have nothing. I just work very hard. Everyone at "The Office" helped me a lot not only when I was mentally suffering, but also when I had trouble coming out of character".

Now the whole country knows her and Chungmuro picks her out as one of the greatest actresses of all times but she has her worries. "I was very nervous before I became an adult. I still don't feel myself to be a professional actress. When I am on break, I always think how I thought the love and support I got from acting was going to be a childhood memory. Other child actors and actresses might have the same worries I do and I want to encourage them. I starred in various things to overcome my fears. I found myself having fun preparing to become someone else".

She mentioned Tilda Swinton's views on life and style. "There's someone who is always free and impressive no matter what the circumstance. That is Tilda Swinton to me. I asked her a lot of questions and it turns out she's very happy. She would bring her family onto the sets and balance life and work evenly. She sad that's how she became happy".

What does Go Ah-sung want her color to be? "Nothing clearly at the moment. Even if I did have one it would be tough to be exactly what I want in a movie. Therefore, I don't wish to be someone or form a character of my own. I would do anything that I feel is right and if I like the character. I could even be a high school student".
