Who Are You-School 2015 costar Jo Soo Hyang talked about having worked with fellow actors Yook Sungjae and Kim So Hyun in an interview with news outlet DongA.com.

[Sungjae] is very playful. Hes like a little brother to me, the actress commented. When asked how she felt when Yook Sungjae confessed of being awkward around her during the press conference of Who Are You-School 2015, Jo Soo Hyang said, I joked around with him for a while because he said that. We both like joking around with each other. We play around like boys when we hang out together.

Jo Soo Hyang went on to praise the talented Kim So Hyun on her acting skills and strong mentality, saying, Kim So Hyun is really amazing. When we were filming, her schedule was very hectic. At first, I would play around with her after we were done filming, but she looked more and more tired as the days went on and I couldnt do that anymore.

"I am playful and cheerful. I am sentimental and I cry a lot. At first when I auditioned for "Who Are You - School 2015", I tried out the innocent Si-jin role first. Then I read So-yeong"s line and they must"ve liked that lot because that"s what I played in the end. Maybe I was good at it because I gritted my teeth learning how to act in high school. I also played a lot of aggressive roles in independent films. Many people worry that the "bad" image would stick to me but it"s something I need to work on as an actress.

"Jo Soo-hyang co-starred with 8 years younger Kim So-yeon. We asked her how she felt bullying her and she said, "I wanted to end it in one shot".

"If I didn"t appeal so strongly then it would lead to NGs and doing that again would really be bullying her. So I tried to go for it at one shot. Thankfully, So-hyeon is very mature so she understood. She"s so kind, too. She approached me first and smiled and talked to me. She was worried about me being tired. Seong-jae and Joo-hyeok are also younger than me but they are so mature. I was the childish one. They took care of me and not the other way around".

New twist on ancient love tale: Chun-hyang on the stage

News via hancinema.net

Meanwhile, the libretto, lyrics, acting, settings and costumes in Serban"s version are replete with modern touches. He portrays Chun-hyang as a woman who has the guts to be ready to face anything, or even to die, if she has to maintain her love, instead of just focusing on the love story between the couple. In the story, Mong-ryong, the son of a high-level government official, follows his father to Namwon and there falls in love at first sight with Chun-hyang, the daughter of a poor family. However, as his father is then assigned to a new position in Seoul, Mong-ryong has to move to the capital. The newly-appointed mayor, who is rumored to be a womanizer, has designs on Chun-hyang and threatens her since she would not sleep with him. Thus denied, the mayor wields his power and falsely accuses her of defamation and treason, landing her in jail. When told that Chun-hyang in prison, Mong-ryong, who by then had become a public prosecutor, immediately returns to Namwon to save her. Serban sees the character of Chun-hyang as being ready to sacrifice herself for her love, while he depicts Mong-ryong as an untrustworthy man who instantly falls deeply in love with Chun-hyang, but who soon lets his love lose steam. That"s why Serban"s show ends as Chunh-yang grows old waiting for Mong-ryong, who may not come back to her ever again.

"The story of Chun-hyang is a story that has been deeply embedded in Koreans" psyche", said Serban at a press conference on November 5. "It sounds quite challenging for a person who is from a different culture to direct the story. It took me about one year to shake off that fear, as I felt as if I was going into an unknown world". "The reason that I was invited to do this work is that they believed I could view Chun-hyang from a different point of view", he added. "This story is so familiar to Koreans, but as this is my first encounter with it, I could tell the story differently, in a more open-minded manner, and could twist it to make it more modern". "The first time I read the libretto, I thought that it was already perfect and that there was no room for me to transform the tale. However, as I looked deeper into it and studied it more, I found that I was wrong. I realized that, like a Shakespeare story, you can twist it, improvise it and attempt some variations on it to recreate it".

But when it comes to darker roles, she shows glimpses of some really good stuff. Lim is very good when it comes to subtlety of expression and conveying emotion. The more human, more vulnerable and exposed moments of her characters feel very raw, but in the good kind of way, rather than unrefined. Her charisma coupled with her ability to really drive emotions home already give her two great advantages over many a rookie. If one can get viewers invested and interested in watching, that is half the battle won.

Given she has not had a breakthrough in terms of great popularity, the future is uncertain for someone like Lim Soo-hyang. A lot will depend on her choices and landing the right roles. Potential is something a lot of people have. That is not a guarantee for success and unless casting directors see that talent and give her a chance to show how far she can take it, Lim might just never make it big. If she does choose wisely and is given the chance, however, she might just do great.
