Kim Seo Hyung opens up about playing lesbian character in ‘Mine’, admiration for Lee Bo Young, and more
On June 28, the actress Kim Seo Hyung sat down for an interview to talk about the end of her TV drama “Mine”.
“Mine” is a drama about strong and ambitious women who overcome societal prejudices in order to find what is truly theirs. Lee bo young played the role of Seo Hee Soo, a former prominent actress and the wife of the second son of the chaebol Hyowon Group family, and Kim Seo Hyung played the role of Jung Seo Hyun, the wife of Hyowon Group eldest son.
“Mine” scored well throughout his race and broke a personal best of 10.5%. Kim Seo Hyung shared that she had foreseen it would be popular, adding, “Of all my recent projects, it has been a long time since I felt so good doing it.”
Her character, Jung Seo Hyun, is a cold and charismatic woman from an elegant and well-born family. Although she is married to Han Jin Ho (Hyuk Kwon Park), the eldest son of Hyowon Group (whose first marriage ended in divorce), she is in love with another woman.
Kim Seo Hyung said, “When I first read the script, I thought I had to be careful and responsible about how I described the character. But I didn’t feel any pressure. or being intimidated into playing a sexual minority character, I thought if I had the chance I might do it.
She continued, “I chose the drama because it was romance. Rather than a story of sexual minorities, it was a love story. As an actor, I felt a sense of ambition playing this character. His background is also quite different from mine. Every actor aspires to play a cool role like this. When I thought about playing this kind of character in the past, I always believed that I could do it comfortably. That’s why I chose this project.
In “Mine”, Jung Seo Hyun reunites with his first love, Choi Su Ji (Kim Jung Hwa). Kim Seo Hyung said, “Every scene that Jung Hwa and I met was fiery. Our first shoot together was on the Hyowon Group Deck, and we pretended we had known each other for months. was grateful to be able to be face to face with her.
In the last episode, Jung Seo Hyun becomes the president of the Hyowon group. In the past, she had given up on her first love, but in the end, she calls Choi Su Ji and says, “I will go wherever you are.” Kim Seo Hyung explained, “I don’t think finding Su Ji necessarily means that she will get true love. I think she is ready to meet Su Ji in some form or another, be it out of friendship or otherwise. thing, and it’s also her way of confronting herself. Within the Hyowon group, Seo Hyun has found what is truly her own. I hope it didn’t end on an exclamation mark for viewers.
Jung Seo Hyun and Seo Hee Soo’s relationship in “Mine” was also a key point for viewers. Kim Seo Hyung said, “I think Lee Bo Young is amazing. It’s amazing that she can take care of her children and work at the same time. During our conversations, we learned that we had been through similar things as actors, so we had a lot of things that we could relate to. Because of that, our chemistry could only be good.
