Girl’s Day’s So Jin Shares on Taking Her First Acting Role through ‘The Best Marriage’
Having transformed into an actress through the drama The Best Marriage, Girl’s Day’s So Jin shared her thoughts on her acting role.
So Jin took her first drama role through TV Chosun’s The Best Marriage, acting as ‘Hyun Myung Yi’ (Uhm Hyeon Kyeong)’s cousin ‘Lee Yu Ri.’
So Jin said, “After the first episode aired, everyone around me told me that the drama is really good so I was happy as I monitored it,” adding, “I couldn’t look at myself straight because I’m still not used to seeing myself act and feel embarrassed. But thanks to everyone’s support and positive feedback on the drama, I’ve been feeling motivated to do better.”
So Jin tried acting for the first time through The Best Marriage, but she has been receiving positive feedback for her stable vocalization and natural facial expressions.
Although she doesn’t have many parts yet, she has been getting praised for pulling off her role nicely in each of the scene she appears. The production team stated, “We’ve already been receiving requests to increase So Jin’s parts.”
Currently carrying out her activities as Girl’s Day while filming The Best Marriage, So Jin said, “It’s been physically straining since my schedules increased but I’ve been reading the scripts and imagining before I sleep in order to focus on my character ‘Lee Yu Ri.’”
So Jin, who received acting lessons before filming the drama, shared, “The sunbaenims told me that it’s best to learn at the filming site so I’ve been focusing on the site in order to adjust to the atmosphere and learn. I am probably lacking since this is my first time acting, but I will work hard in order to return thanks to the viewers who have been seeing me in a good light.”
The Best Marriage depicts different couples centering on star anchor woman Cha Ki Young (Park Si Yeon), who decides to become ‘Miss Mom,’ (single mom by choice), as it throws questions regarding dating and marriage. It stars Park Si Yeon, Bae Soo Bin, No Min Woo, Uhm Hyeon Kyeong, Jo Eun Ji, Jung Ae Yeon, Song Young Kyu, Kang Ji Yong and So Jin.
