Media attention focuses on Hwang
Q.How was it to be acting for the first time in a film?
A. I had great expectations for this film. I looked really fat, but that’s what I intended. I am on a diet again. Oh, and we had to put on mosquito repellent because we filmed in the summer near the Han River.
If I have the chance, I’d love to play a role in a melodrama next time, like a girl who falls madly in love with someone. I’d also like to act in an action film. Thank you.
What was it like to act with a big star like Park Hae-il in your first movie?
(Her eyes wide) I was always a great fan of his. The director did not tell me who would play the teacher character that I was supposed to fall in love with. When I found out that it was Park Hae-il, I was in a state of total excitement and nervousness.
I couldn’t talk to him. But he came up to me one day and stared hard at my face and the first words he said were, “You are one heck of a weird-looking girl.” I was so shocked.
There wasn’t much of a romance between you and Mr. Park.
Yeah. I am very sorry about that too (giggling). But he was a very nice person. I was hoping that we would have a scene that involved more than holding hands.
