In Under the Queen’s umbrella, Kim Hye Soo plays a queen who does her best to protect her princes from the dangers of the royal court while she tries to uncover the truth behind her son’s death. The drama received rave reviews and was both a critical and commercial success.

It seems that the drama’s success came at a price for the actress, as she described how difficult it was for her to direct the drama.

The best part about wrapping up the drama is knowing I don’t have to stay up all night reading the script. I never wanted to live that long, but I feel like filming the drama took three years of my life. I thought, ‘I’m going to die three years early.’ I regret nothing. I did everything I could in the moments (I filmed).

To be honest it was so lonely and difficult. I thought I should stop, ‘I can’t do this anymore. It is too hard. I will resign. And despite all that hard work, the audience says, “This is Kim Hye Soo.” It’s not surprising that she plays well. It’s cruel, but I know it’s natural, but I’ve always been alone.
