Kim Jiwon Just Begins to Fly High

[by Lim Mi Ae, translated by Woorim Ahn] Actress Kim Jiwon, who perfectly digested her role Yoon Myung Joo in KBS drama ‘Descendant of the Sun’, took a pictorial with bnt.

She showed an elegant mood with a white dress and expressed a girly side as she made gorgeous smiles. It was just like a white angel came that stole Seo Dae Young’s heart to the pictorial site.

Kim Jiwon said, “I used the accent since I was young, but I had to express it in more tough way, I tried harder. When I firstly read the scenario, I fell in love with my character so I cut my hair short to complete my role” about her accent in ‘Descendant of the Sun’.

She added, “I really liked the feelings that I’m loved by Seo Dae Young. He is my ideal type that is readily willing to give up his greed for his lady. I worried if Jin Goo would feel uncomfortable with me since we have 12-year of age gap, but he was a perfect partner so far.”

She continued, “When I act in skirts, there are many limits depending on cameras’ angles. However, the army uniform allowed me to make various poses, so I could focus on acting.”

She chose the most memorable scene of the drama as when Yoo Si Jin said, “Then, make him alive.” She said, “Since I wasn’t there when the scene was filmed, I got to watch it through my TV. I shouted when Yoo Si Jin took off his in-ear” and laughed.

As Kim Jiwon worked on ‘Descendant of the Sun’, she said, “I earned lots of things that are indescribable. The most appreciating part is that I got close with good seniors and colleagues. I could spend 7 months with them and the time was enough for us to get close.”

Recently, she appeared in SBS variety program ‘Running Man’ and we asked for her to choose the best episode during filming it. She answered, “There was a game that has water bomb as a penalty. Actually, I have water phobia, so I worried a lot. However, Yoo Jae Suk noticed it and he tried his best for me to avoid the penalty. I was very touched.”

What are her plans from now on? She said, “I had a fan signing event at the end of April. It was very different experience for me. It was my first time to receive presents from fans and I saw fans with professional cameras. I will try my best so that I can fulfill their requests. I’m not sure what would be my next work, but doing best is my goal in 2016.” (photo by bntnews DB)
