Lee Se-young takes on the role of Min Hyo-won, a daughter of a rich family who is obsessed with Kang Tae-yang (Hyun Woo). She's cute and charming. She likes Kang Tae-yang but pretends she doesn't although her expressions and actions say it all.
"Acting out this character was hard at first. She's nosy, lovely and cute, but I worried that I wouldn't do a good job. The producer advised me a lot and now I'm very synchronized with the character".
Lee Se-young says she's been acting out characters she can handle and says, "I haven't done characters that I can't handle like a killer for example. I try to think about the relationships between people".
Unlike her calm appearance, she likes action movies. She loves Angelina Jolie and says, "Action movies make my heart thump. I want to become an outstanding action film star in my 30s. Son Ye-jin who does everything from romance, comedy and action is my role model".
She's been acting for 20 years but she's still got that enthusiasm for acting.
"I want to act all the way until the day I finally can't memorize my lines. I was touched by a senior actor once who couldn't hear but acted by feeling. I learn a lot from Park Joon-geum too who is my mother in the drama. She's always early and never wavers from her position".
