"Beauty Inside" Han Hyo-joo and her concerns before she turns 30

2015/08/12 Source

"There's 4 months left till I'm 30".

That's what actress Han Hyo-joo said. She has been busy throughout her 20s. She's been from movies to dramas in different characters and jobs. She's come back with "Beauty Inside" with only four months left to her 30s.

"Beauty Inside" is about a man who becomes a different person to a man, a man, a child, an elderly and even a foreigner every morning and the woman who loves him. It is based on an original novel called, "The Beauty Inside".

The movie has newer contents compared to the novel. The novel says the woman spends a night with the man to see his face change every day. The movie shows the man and the woman facing realistic matters.

Han Hyo-joo says it's a movie so there's no need to divide it in sections. However, she honestly said, "I like the original story better. It's more appealing".

When Han received the scenario for the movie, she thought it was 'something new'. "I think it's different from the Korean movies being made today. I want to see this kind of movie being made into a Korean version".

"So I wanted "Beauty Inside" to be well made into a commercial movie. It's a good attempt and challenge so if this one does well then hopefully it'll open doors for many more. Many varieties of movies mean more to see for the public. Some parts may be disappointing but personally I'm satisfied with how it turned out".

Han Hyo-joo plays Lee Soo and co-starred with the many actors and actresses that play Woo-jin. 123 people starred in the role of Woo-jin. It wasn't going to be easy but Han Hyo-joo didn't think like that when she received the scenario.

"I'm not the kind to think something's 'difficult'. I realize that it is when I get there. I only realize it later". She didn't know where to stand, seeing so many people on the set. Working with various actors and actresses all the time wasn't as easy as she thought it would be".

Thanks to the staff and the director, she wasn't lonely. They had her in consideration when they divided the scenario serially. She knows that wasn't easy. So she's thankful.

Han Hyo-joo put in more concentration in this movie than she did in anything else. She had to play Lee Soo, a woman who is in love with a man that changes every day. "I can relate to Lee Soo. I had to face a different actor or actress every day like she had to face a different person that was her lover".

"The situation allowed me to fall more into the role. Sometimes I was so confused that I didn't know who was my last partner".

"I felt Park Seo-joon was the most Woo-jin-like. That's when Lee Soo falls in love with him. However, later I didn't remember his face as all the faces overlapped. It was an interesting experience".

To Han Hyo-joo, Ueno Juri was the most impressive out of all Woo-jins. She said she felt the real Woo-jin through her.

"I saw her as Woo-jin and I want to believe the audience will too. I decided to see her as Woo-jin and Chun Woo-hee too".

Working with Kim Joo-hyuk was also a special experience to Han Hyo-joo. His role of Woo-jin was breaking up with Lee Soo. Kim Joo-hyuk had to say goodbye to Han Hyo-joo as soon as he saw her.

"In a mellow movie, the emotions of an actor or actress build up inside them before it explodes. However, Kim Joo-hyuk made it convenient for me to act. I could feel his long years of acting there. It didn't feel like we'd met for the first time".

Han Hyo-joo says those who acted the role of Woo-jin would have had a tougher time. She lived in the same character for the past few months but the others had to concentrate immensely just for a few cuts. They must have wondered how they would continue being the Woo-jin that someone else had made before them.

"Everyone played Woo-jin well. Watching them helped me and it was fun. Where else would I be able to watch that? They didn't just simply do it because it was a small role. They really thought deeply about it. That all ended up in the movie. Everyone threw in a little bit of spice in it".

Han Hyo-joo is looking towards 30 now. She said, "I had many things I wanted to do before I turned 30. I wanted to try comical romance like "Coffee Prince" and "Innocent love".

She's thinking about 'marriage' too. However, it's not till later. She's so focused on her work she says she's taking a break from romance. But now that she's stepping into her 30s, she wonders if she has to get married or not someday.

"I think I'll be 40 in no time. I am worried about my life as a woman". It's something she needs to worry about too. She dreams of romance, a hot one. She just might be the perfect actress for a romantic flick.
