You might recognise Korean actress Kyung Soo Jin from her appearance in Korean reality TV show I Live Alone or her latest drama, Train, in which she acts alongside Yoon Shi Yoon.
We scored an email interview with the 32-year-old to find out more about her personality and what it was like to work with Shi Yoon.
You and Yoon Shi Yoon have a one-year age gap, but he debuted before you did. What is your relationship with him like? What was your first impression of him?
My first impression of him was that he is a dainty and easygoing person. I have so much to learn from him. I am generally a person who will discuss a lot about the production or my role, and I personally seek advice for my concerns. We always joke about how Yoon Shi Yoon will probably remain as a “teacher of life” even after this drama ends.
You showed people a side of you that they don’t usually see on I Live Alone. Were you worried about appearing on the show?
I actually had quite a few concerns before I started to appear on the show as I have never had the chance to reveal the true side of me through the platform of observational reality programs while being active as an actress. Honestly, I was very worried up till just before my first episode went on air. However after it went on air, a lot of people have shown me their support and liking for it, and that has been of great strength for me.
We noticed that you tend to space out on the show. Do you stare into space a lot, or does it only happen at home?
I do space out often. (Laughs)
You’ve lived alone for more than eight years. What’s the best adulting tip you learnt through living alone?
That you’ll probably gain strength to focus on yourself. Instead of being reliant on someone else, you will be able to concentrate on what you are going to do and make a choice and because of that you will start to know better about the things you like and dislike.
Actresses face a lot of pressure to look good. How do you relieve yourself of that pressure?
Rather than feeling any pressure to look good, I do always think about how I can better present myself. I am also a person who takes good care of my different food groups, along with exercise.
Train touches on alternate universes. If you met another version of yourself in an alternate universe, what would you say to her?
I think I would be so curious about how she is living there and just keep throwing her a bunch of questions regarding her job, her family, and her friendships and so on.
Full episodes of ‘Train’ are now available on Viu. New episodes of ‘I Live Alone’ are available on Viu every Saturday.
