Gong Hyo-jin Proves She Is Rom-Com Magnet on Both Big and Small Screens

2019/10/05 | Permalink | Source

It looks like Gong Hyo-jin is trying to prove that she is truly a household name in Korean romantic comedy, as she concurrently appears in a romantic comedy film and a TV series.

Her latest film "Crazy Romance", co-starring actor Kim Rae-won, hit theaters on Wednesday amid much hype, while the TV series "When the Camellia Blooms" has been receiving good responses since its start on Sept. 19.

"These days, I'm more at ease than ever. My drama is going well and I have a good feeling about my film", said Gong.

Gong has a charm that makes her come across as a girl next door one can open up to, and this enables viewers to easily empathize with her characters.

The same is true for "Crazy Romance", which portrays a break-up and new relationship between a typical young couple of today.

Gong says romantic comedies are never easy for her despite her reputation and impressive portfolio in the genre. "I get stressed and a lot of things run through my mind each time", she said. One of her biggest fears is repeating her previous roles. "If something seems familiar, I often ask the director or writer to make a change. Some may call me fussy, but I believe that is what brought me to where I am now", she said.

"I especially like playing characters with high self-esteem, who are as committed to their work as they are devoted to love, because that kind of person, be it a woman or a man, seems awesome", she said.


"Crazy Romance" is directed by Kim Han-gyul, and features Kim Rae-won, Gong Hyo-jin, Kang Ki-young, Jung Woong-in, Jang So-yeon, Lee Chae-eun. Release date in Korea: 2019/10/02.
