[Interview] MBLAQ’s Mir Encouraged His Sister to Film Revealing Scenes in ‘Sketch’
Having filmed a 19-plus rated movie Sketch, Ko Eun A confessed, “My younger brother MBLAQ’s Mir showed me support in filming the revealing scenes.”
During her recent interview with enews, Ko Eun A was asked, “The movie has quite a few of revealing scenes. What did your brother Mir say about that?”
She answered, “He was supportive, unlike what I expected. He told me I cannot truly call myself an actress if I shun away from exposing myself.”
Ko Eun A filmed a bed scene with her co-star Park Jae Jung in the movie, going topless in the scene. This is the first time she revealed her body on screen since the debut, despite the many offers she has received until now.
The actress said, “To be honest, the person that was on my mind the most before I filmed the movie was my brother Mir. I worried about what Mir’s friends and the MBLAQ members would think if I filmed the revealing scenes.”
“But he said, ‘You’re not truly an actress if you hesitate to reveal yourself’ and told me to shoot the scenes so people can say I have a beautiful and sexy body,” she said.
According to Ko Eun A, Mir is a quite serious and trustworthy son in the family, unlike his bright image shown on television.
“When we have a family gathering, Mir is the most serious and conservative,” claimed the actress. “So I was shocked when he coolly shared his thoughts on the revealing scenes. That’s what gave me the courage to act in the movie.”
Ko Eun A took the role of a genius artist Soo Yeon in Sketch, which is scheduled to be released on March 27.
