[INTERVIEW] Actress Lee Na-young (Part 1) 2010/01/14, Source,
Actress Lee Na-young [Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia]
Most actresses which men rave about, are less liked by women. But a handsome number of female fans became enchanted with Lee Na-young's roles in TV series such as "Ruler of Your Own World" and "Ireland". And words such as 'consistency', 'sturdiness' and 'prudence' -- normally used to describe someone of the male gender -- also befit this 31-year-old actress well. She was the same on the set of film "Lady Daddy". The Lee Na-young that 10Asia met with sighed as she jokingly complained how the female members of the crew would ask for photographs with her when she dressed up as a man in particular, much more so than when she was herself. But it seemed unlike that her image as an actress will be affected after she dons a mustache and short hair to play her character Ji-hyun. Below is 10Asia's interview with the actress who seeks after what she wants, even if it may be the long way around. 10: I hear that you choose your roles quite carefully so "Lady Daddy" was an surprising choice in many ways.Lee Na-young (Lee): I made my mind up very quickly for film "Dream" and sitcom "High Kick Through The Roof" but took more time with "Lady Daddy" because many people around me were concerned about it. Before, I had never thought about 'image' in choosing a role but it seemed I should with this film since the topic may influence my image as an actress in Korea. That's why some people were telling me, "As an actress..". but in the end, I decided to think about my character and genre more than my image. 10: So what was the key factor that led you to take on "Lady Daddy"? Lee: I liked the combination of comedy with the possibly risky topic we are usually careful to talk about. Sex change in particular is something Koreans are not used to and have little information or knowledge about. So I was extremely attracted to the collaboration of the topic and genre, and another thing was that I wanted to play the role of a man. I was very shocked upon seeing Kate Blanchett's acting in the film "I'm Not There". I had never thought I'd be able to play the role of a guy but also started wondering whether such an opportunity would arise in our country too. That's why, when I got the scenario for this film, I was worried about it. But I also told myself that it was unlikely I'd be given the chance to play this sort of a role again. That's why for me, what was important was 'being a guy' and not dressing up as one, whether it be as the person from his past or as a dad.,...More

It's great. I have no idea of who the actors were but they're really good. You can really feel what they emotion they're expressing. Esp the Main cast, Liang Donggen, i think, is his name. You can really feel the pain that he can't express in words, just by watching. I love it. It's really moving.
I'm looking forward to watching more Korean Movies and maybe even visit the country.
