Moon Chae Won Says She Aims to be More Professional Than Pretty
Moon Chae Won talked about how she loves her role and didn′t care about looking pretty for it at all because she needed to be professional.
The actress spoke up at the press conference for KBS2′s Good Doctor held on July 31.
About her resident fellow role Cha Yoon Seo, she said, "It′s usually hard for female characters to stand out in medical dramas, but I liked Cha Yoon Seo because she wasn′t an assistant for male doctors; she was an actual surgeon herself. I took up the role because I thought I would be able to show how she matures as a doctor while heading her own surgeries."
She added, "I don′t try to look pretty when I′m acting. If I start caring about such things, I start to stray from the character. This time, since I′m supposed to be a doctor, it′s important that I put on the right expressions and show her easygoing personality, as a realistic doctor character."
Cha Yoon Seo is a smart and responsible woman who loves children.
Moon Chae Won also said about being called the ′queen of ratings′, "I′ve appeared in KBS pieces on end, and I was able to get such great results thanks to the great people around me. I′m happy I′ll be working with KBS directors again this time. I can′t say I don′t feel any pressure about viewership ratings, but still I′ll just work hard to make a good and healthy drama."
Good Doctor is about how the autistic Park Si On breaks through prejudice in his area and grows to become an expert doctor.
It airs its first episode on August 5.
