Kim Yewon has just begun her career as an actress, but is still labeled as a former girl group member. She debuted in 2011 as a part of Jewelry and remained until 2015 when the group split up. Her time as part of Jewelry is longer than her fledling career as an actress and she feels as though she's been in a slump since the break up of the idol group.
Kim Yewon said, "It was most difficult to find out who I am, not the break up itself. I asked myself what I did. I wasn't a singer or an actress anymore. I wondered what I should be doing and that's what gave me. a hard time".
So Kim Yewon decided to act. "I knew that MCs wondered what to call me as when I was at an event; singer and actress Kim Yewon? Former Jewelry Kim Yewon? Former Jewelry and current actress Kim Yewon? I didn't have a title of my own and that was because I wasn't good at any of those. I would like to be acknowledged for acting now. I think it's fun and I would like to try many characters. I was a singer as a group, but I've never done anything as a solo person".
She mentioned Jung Ryeo-won, Jeon Hye-bin, and Seo Hyun-jin as former singer-turned-actresses who she would like to emulate. "They are from girl groups, too. There are many that know, but more that don't know that. I want to be like them and be a better actress than I am a singer and make people forget what I used to be. I am only beginning so I look up to them. Park Jung-ah from the first Jewelry group is a lot of support to me although we weren't in the group together".
Kim Yewon is full of will power. She wants to do everything without bias towards her characters.
"If I want to be a solid actress, then I have to do as much as I can and even try the characters that I don't think is my style. For now, I would like to link my name to a character that reminds people of me".
She starred in "What's Wrong With Secretary Kim" as a clumsy assistant and earned good reviews, but she wants to be better.
"I want to look friendly and I want to be acknowledged in what I do. I have to work hard for it and continue to until someone tells me I'm doing a good job".
