IU, “The Turning Point? My acting career changed after appearing in this drama” • Kpopnews
The singer and actress IU spoke openly about the job, which marked a turning point in her acting life.
Ahead of the release of his upcoming movie Dream, UI had an interview with Wikitree on April 20th at a coffee shop in Sogyeok-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul.
“Dream” follows the story of clueless former soccer player Hong Dae (Park Seo Joon) and passionless PD So Min (IU) as they challenge impossible dreams with a national soccer team made up of homeless people. IU appears in the film as PD So Min, lacking passion and money, who is making a documentary for the Homeless World Cup.
IU made her acting debut in the KBS2 drama “Dream High” in 2011 and has been an actress for 13 years, playing many different characters. she shared “Each work has its own unique characteristics and achievements, so they are all unforgettable to me. I don’t want to pick just one drama and one character. But the role that made me think, “It’s an important role, even if it’s not very well known.” It would be Kim Bo Tong in Bel Ami.
IU pointed out “When I played So Min this time, I referred to Bo Tong. Bo Tong was a super bright character. With So Min I’ve played a happy character again for the first time in a while. As I was playing, I was just like, ‘Oh, I’ve done that before, haven’t I?’ and I was able to find parts of such a character myself.” add to “A lot of people remember me as Ji An on ‘My Mister’ and love me for the role of Man Wol on ‘Hotel del Luna.’ But Bo Tong is still a valuable character for me, even though it’s not a well-known role.
IU revealed the turning point in her acting career came after she starred in tvN’s My Mister in 2018, saying: “Back then I challenged a new image. I used to play a lot of happy and bright characters, but the mood of my roles changed after I starred in ‘My Mister’.” add to “With So Min from ‘Dream’ I’m hoping for more casting offers for entertaining roles.”
“Dream” with IU, on the other hand, is based on the true story of the 2010 Homeless World Cup, in which South Korea participated for the first time. The premiere is on the 26th.
