Actress Bae Hae Sun is well known for her acting abilities, first appearing in the movie Who Are You? in 2002.
She then took on her first drama role in Yong-Pal, where she filmed an infamous slap scene with actress Kim Tae Hee.
More recently, she has acted in famous dramas like Hotel Del Luna, It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha, and most recently, All of Us Are Dead.
Hae Sun sat down with ELLE KOREA for an interview in which she focused on answering big questions with her own personal experiences. Sharing her advice on everything from feeling unsatisfied with your achievements…
… to balancing expectations for achieving success in your career and getting married…
… to getting out of a slump…
… to accepting relatively small acting roles.
Which is something the experienced actress admits doesn’t matter to her.
Instead, she chooses to prioritize accepting roles that move and excite her.
And if the role she accepts is a small part, Hae Sun is actually excited at the prospect of getting to spend her time exploring the set and watching the staff work.
Hae Sun takes moments like that “to watch and learn” so she can improve her own craft.
Whenever she wasn’t the one filming a scene, she felt that it was refreshing to see how dedicated everyone is to the project. Since she gets to see the parts of filming she hasn’t personally experienced.
It inspires her “world of imagination,” which “makes [her] feel alive.”
Hae Sun concludes her answer by adding that, especially if she’s worried she might fail because the task is something unfamiliar, that makes her only more determined “to say “Ok! I want to try it.'”
