After School′s Uee on Acting as the Lover of a Man Much Older Than Her
Uee opened up about how it feels to partner up with a man more than 10 years older than her for her drama.
Uee attended the press conference for the upcoming KBS2 drama Woochi held on November 14.
Uee said when asked about her teamwork with Cha Tae Hyun, "I don′t feel much pressure. It′s very comfortable. I often feel I′m being protected as an actress and as a little sister on set."
She then added, "I wear a lot of hanbok because the drama is a period piece. I hope more people notice my traditional charms this time."
The singer-turned-actor has often acted in bright and more modern roles for her dramas, but for Woochi she will be undergoing a transformation of her own. She will appear as the ′ice princess′ Hong Mu Yeon, granddaughter of Hong Gil Dong and Jeon Woochi′s fiance.
Hong Mu Yeon will be put under a spell, and attack Jeon Woochi without being able to recognize who he is. In a few videos released from the drama, Uee is shown with a cold smile on her face, attacking her lover Jeon Woochi while flying through the air on wires.
Uee said about her role, "I′m trying to figure out ways to express myself since I have to put on a straight face all the time. The action isn′t too hard because I′ve trained my body through dance. I′ll show off a type of action never seen in other actresses, and make it look like a dance."
Woochi airs its first episode on November 21.
