Actress Jeon Do-yeon spoke her mind about the nickname, 'Queen of Cannes'.
Jeon Do-yeon started off by saying, "I wasn't here at the BIFF as often as I thought. It's thrilling for me and I regret not being here before".
She took home the Best Actress for "Secret Sunshine" in 2007 at the Cannes International Film Festival and earned the title, 'Queen of Cannes'.
Jeon Do-yeon said, "It's very pressuring, the title. I wanted to overcome it but it was too much. I think this nickname will be with me for as long as I am an actress. I don't want to get rid of it but just accept it and do my best".
She continued, "I have received many awards so far. In the past I thought awards were given just by making a movie but now I know different. I don't make movies to get awards but I make movies to meet the audience. I always feel supported by those who cheer for me".
She was asked when she found it toughest yet and she said, "I had it rough the most during "Milyang". Director Lee Chang-dong asked me to show him the real thing but I didn't know what that was. So I felt resentful. If I was to make the movie again, it might become a different one".
Jeon Do-yeon has been acting non-stop. It's been 23 years since she's started acting. "I've always wanted to be an actress who can act until I'm old. I think I can". She also wants to be in black comedies and series movies. She even mentioned a possibility of reuniting with Hwang Jung-min.
When she was asked what kind of an actress she wanted to be, she said, "I just want to be a good actress. I want to be a trustable one and not make my audience regret watching my movie".
