Saying what′s on her mind honestly, Go Ara talked about her debut and acting career.

On June 3, SBS shared, "Go Ara, who is currently filming You Are All Surrounded, revealed that her dream was to become an announcer."

Go Ara, currently acting as a rookie detective on You Are All Surrounded, recently had an interview with her school, Chung-Ang University, for the school newspaper.

As a theater and cinema major, Go Ara revealed, "My childhood dream was to become an announcer." She added, "After seeing Chae Rim sunbaenim acting as an announcer in the drama All About Eve, I dreamt of becoming an announcer. Even after I passed the SM auditions, my dreams to become an announcer didn′t change."

With her family′s support, Go Ara began training as a SM trainee in 2003 and debuted through the drama, Sharp in 2005.

"It was through Sharp that I began dreaming of becoming an actress," said Go Ara. "With the director and writer′s suggestions, I started writing a journal in the perspective of [the character] Ock Rim. Through this, I was able to express Ock Rim and not myself, and naturally began understanding what acting was all about."

Following this, Go Ara appeared in dramas Snow Flower, Heading into the Ground, movie Pacemaker, and finally Reply 1994 in 2013.

"While filming Reply 1994, I began to really understand my image from before. To an actor, an image is an important function that controls the range of roles. Through this production, I was able to hear that I′ve gained a different image as an actress, and it was most welcoming," said Go Ara.

"It was a production that allowed me to express a different college life, while feeling like I was filming my own story acting as Na Jung from the ages of 20 to 25. I still have some feelings lingering from this drama, and even now, seven actors and the director still chatter in a group chat room together."

Regarding her current drama, You Are All Surrounded, Go Ara didn′t forget about her affection and determination for it.

"You Are All Surrounded is a project that has the passion and energy of many actors and staff combined together, and I hope this energy can easily transition over to the viewers."

In her final words, Go Ara stated, "I hope that I can become a trustworthy actress, whose projects will be watched by viewers with their confidence in me. That is my direction point as an actress."
