Kim Min Hee Opens Up About Love and Future
"Now that spring is here, I should work harder."
That was the vivacious response of actress Kim Min Hee in response to the question, "Are you seeing anyone?"
Kim Min Hee, who recently reached the top of the box office with Helpless (Train) (directed by Byun Young Joo), revealed plans to seize the opportunity given to her and shared her light and honest views on love.
Kim Min Hee recently met with enews and replied, "I′m not [dating]" when asked if she was seeing anyone.
"Now that spring is here, I should work harder. Besides, aren′t all relationships like that? You can′t try to force it, it has to happen naturally," she said as she smiled.
Helpless, starring Lee Sun Gyun and Kim Min Hee, attracted 680,000 moviegoers (according to the Korean Film Council′s Compiled Ticket Computer Network) in the first weekend alone and was well on its way to the top of the box office.
Helpless received plenty of attention as it leapt over other formidable movies like the Hollywood blockbuster, John Carter, and Love Fiction, which stars Ha Jung Woo and Gong Hyo Jin.
Helpless held even more significance to Kim Min Hee because this film is her biggest success since her silver screen debut back in 2002 with Surprise.
"Whether it’s dating or acting, I want to follow my heart and do what I want [to do]. While I could reach out to more viewers by appearing in dramas, it seems like my happiness is my main priority. At the moment, I′d rather be an actor. While it might not hold much significance today, when people think of ′Kim Min Hee′ in the future, I would like to be known as an actress who wasn’t ashamed of her work," she said.
She concluded, "I′m a little weary due to my busy schedule of late. I′m looking forward to visiting the United States and seeing my sister and nephew again, who I have not seen in some time due to my production activities. I will think about my relationship [prospects] and upcoming movie roles while I rest and recharge.”
Helpless is a thriller movie based on a novel by Miyuki Miyabe, Japan′s queen of mystery.
The film tells the story of bride-to-be Sun Young (Kim Min Hee), who disappears after receiving a phone call, and the shocking discovery by Moon Ho (Lee Sun Gyun) and police detective Jong Gun (Jo Sung Ha) that everything about her (including her name, age, and family) was all a lie.
