Lee Young-ae: "I Would Want to Be a Singer If I Were Reborn"

2005/07/20 | Permalink | Source

Actress Lee Young-ae said she would want to be a singer if she had a second chance at life. She made the comment during her appearance on "Yoon Do-hyun's Love Letter", which was recorded on July 19 at KBS' main building in Yeouido, Seoul.

"I would want to be an underground singer rather than a famous one. I feel a special rapport with the audience when I act onstage, and I am sure that feeling is even stronger when you sing in front of the audience. I used to sing a lot while in college", said Lee.

Lee received much praise from the show's audience when she sang the ballad version of her favorite song, Zaurim's "Hey, Hey, Hey!" She also made everyone laugh when she said that her latest movie, "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance", which is PG-18 rated, can even be seen by minors--if they "find a way to sneak into the theater".

The actress also added that she has finally fulfilled her dream of starring in an auteristic movie by playing the lead in "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance", which, according to Lee, has a heart-moving and interesting plot, despite its dark subject of revenge.
