The reason why actor Kim Seo-hyung decided to appear in the drama ‘Mine’ was a little surprising. It wasn’t the often expected answer.
In an interview with Newsen and others at the end of the tvN drama ‘Mine’, Kim Seo-hyung said, “The first reason I chose the work was because it was a story about sexual minorities. I don’t see a lot of works that deal with sexual minorities in movies and overseas famous works,” he said.
The drama ‘Main’, chosen by Seo-hyung Kim, tells the story of women from a chaebol family. Kim Seo-hyung played the first daughter-in-law of the Hyowon group, Jeong Seo-hyun. Jeong Seo-hyun is married to her husband Han Jin-ho (Park Hyuk-kwon), who has been divorced once, but he always missed his ex-girlfriend Choi Su-ji (Kim Jung-hwa).
There were not many scenes in which Jung Seo-hyun and Choi Su-ji appeared together. However, only one appearance left a strong impression. Because of this, ‘Mine’ was evaluated as the Korean version of ‘Carol’. ‘Carol’, released in 2015, tells the story of women who love each other, starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara.
Kim Seo-hyung, who said he was impressed with the movie ‘Carol’, said, “I think I was able to do it more excitedly. If I have tasted this kind of food here, I have high hopes that I will be able to meet other works like ‘Carol’ in earnest.”
In fact, to Kim Seo-hyeong, the gender of the person that Jeong Seo-hyun loved was not very important.
Kim Seo-hyung said, “I also had the pride that I could do very well (as Jung Seo-hyun in ‘Main’). No matter what kind of melody it was, there was a thirst for the character regardless of gender. In fact, I was expecting to see something like this in a movie first, but there was something I wanted in the script to the extent that the producers, writers, and directors seemed to have found my interview.”
In addition, Kim Seo-hyung praised Kim Jeong-hwa, the partner who played the lover.
Kim Seo-hyung said, “From the first meeting, it was strangely good. Jeonghwa said that she had played a sexual minority role before. You have prepared so well, it seems that you became Seohyun and Suzy Choi right away. We filmed right away without NG and broke up.” He said, “Junghwa also has very good eyes. I think we talked a lot eye to eye. It was a good experience,” he said.
