[INTERVIEW] Actress Kim So-yeon - Part 1 2010/06/09, Source,
Korean actress Kim So-yeon [photographed by Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia] Actress Kim So-yeon says "feels like I am back at the starting line" Out of three Wednesday/Thursday evening dramas, which all premiered on the same day last March, SBS TV series "Prosecutor Princess" never scored the No. 1 viewership rating during its run. However, the show remained a well-made drama till the end with its tight storyline and unique characters played by all the right actors. It would not be an exaggeration to say that actress Kim So-yeon, who played the title character, displayed such impressive acting skills that it might perhaps be the biggest achievement anyone has made in the first half of the year. Even though it wasn't the so-called 'possessed acting', Kim So-yeon created an interesting chemistry seen in the perfect match-up of an actress and her character. After a long hiatus and challenging times, the actress, who used to be the representative star of trendy dramas in the 90s, is back at a brand new starting line. And she is more hungry for acting now more than ever, she says. 10Asia interviewed Kim So-yeon, whose sincerity shone through during the interview and was moving at unsuspecting moments,...More
[INTERVIEW] Actress Kim So-yeon - Part 2 2010/06/09, Source,
Korean actress Kim So-yeon [photographed by Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia] 10: You have been a star since your teenage years. At certain times when you didn't have any work, it would have been easy for you, both emotionally and financially, to choose to do projects that didn't suit you but you never did. How were you able to turn them down? Kim: I came close to doing them many times, haha. I don't think there was anything that was completely out of the question for me to do. But there were times when I would have done a not-so-great drama but it flopped. There was one drama that I wasn't so crazy about but thought, 'I'll just do it anyway". But they ended up casting someone else and I was humiliated. When you are forced to go on a hiatus like that, you begin to feel very determined afterwards. A part of me thought that I should just wait for something else to come along. You tell yourself, 'This is not the end of me' and endure it. When I look back at such times, I think those experiences helped me in the end but back then it was really difficult! (laugh),...More

Press conference for SBS TV series "Prosecutor Princess" On the first week of the battle amongst Wednesday andThursday evening dramas by three broadcasting networks, SBS TV series "Prosecutor Princess" came in third in viewership ratings. But the figures are not the absolute criterion of how entertaining or well-made the show is and the transformation Kim So-yeon has made -- who played a female warrior in KBS' "IRIS" and came back as an innocent prosecutor Ma Hye-ri who has no clue about working in an organization -- is a success. The comedic acting by colorful supporting characters also catches the viewers' eyes,...More
