Go Ah-sung Keeps Star Status and Studies Separate

2014/03/29 | 626 views | Permalink | Source

Former child actress Go Ah-sung has already starred in some of the biggest movies to come out of Korea, including the sci-fi smash hit 'The Host" (2006) and last year's English-language thriller "Snowpiercer".

But the 22-year-old actress, who can be seen in this year's "Thread of Lies" about a teenage suicide, is taking a different academic route from most of her peers in the profession.

Instead of choosing to focus on film and theater, Ko is majoring in psychology at Sungkyunkwan University. She said she took this path after listening to the advice of friends and family members who suggested it would help expand her horizons as an actress in the long term.

"I love my major. It helps me to be a better person, which in turn helps me as an actor", she said.

Asked if her movie career has had any impact on her relationships with friends and schoolmates, she said, "My friends aren't very interested in what I do, and many people I meet at school don't even know I'm an actress".

"Thread of Lies" has attracted over 1 million viewers since it was released on March 13. The movie tells the story of a 14-year-old girl who commits suicide and the impact of this on her mother, older sister and friend as they try to discover the reason why.
