Kim Hye Sun Takes Risk Filming Nude Scene in New Movie
“I wanted to take a risk on myself,” said actress Kim Hye Sun on her nude scene in romantic comedy Perfect Partner
A press preview and reporters’ roundtable was held for the film at the CGV in Seoul on November 10. Kim attended the event alongside the film’s director Park Hun Su and cast members Kim Young Ho, Kim San Ho and Yoon Chae-i, and they shared some behind-the-scenes stories from the set.
When asked if she felt any pressure while filming the nude scene, Kim replied, “Because it was absolutely necessary for the role of Hee Suk, I didn’t have any fears or inner conflicts.” She added, “It’s something you have to do as an actor, and I wanted to take a risk on myself.”
Kim plays culinary researcher, Hee Suk, who falls for her student Min Su (Kim San Ho). The film has become a hot topic not only because of the steamy sex scene, but because Kim Hye Sun and Kim San Ho are 12 years apart. It was also the actors’ first time filming a bed scene.
“I haven’t filmed a movie in 17 years, since 1993,” said Kim. “I liked the script more than anything, and I chose the project because I thought I’d be able to show another side of myself that I haven’t been able to show in dramas.”
She concluded, “I think a perfect picture has been born from director Park Hun Su’s fingertips and the staff’s hard work.” Kim added, “I hope the audience will feel good watching the film.”
Perfect Partner will hit theaters on November 17.
