[Interview] "Missing You - 2016" Shim Eun-kyung's sincere concerns about acting

2016/03/27 | 1235 views | Permalink | Source

Actress Shim Eun-kyung seemed nervous and uncomfortable about something throughout the whole interview. She lacked confidence in her voice and she hung head several times. She was not the actress we know from "Sunny - 2010" or "Miss Granny". We had to push back our questions every time she hung her head. We felt pity for the girl sitting in front of us who kept reflecting on herself when she should be promoting her upcoming movie "Missing You - 2016". We listened to what the actress had to say.

We met Shim Eun-kyung recently in Seoul. The writing, "You killed my dad didn't you?" on the poster of the movie "Missing You - 2016" hints what the movie is about. "Missing You - 2016" starring Shim Eun-kyung, Kim Sung-oh and Yoon Je-moon depicts a girl who waits 15 years for her father's killer to get out of prison and a detective named Dae-yeong (Yoon Je-moon) who looks after her. They go after the killer Ki-bum (Kim Sung-oh).

"Missing You - 2016" is Shim Eun-kyung's first thriller. It only seems natural after her performance in "Living Death". However, her previous movies "Sunny - 2010" and "Miss Granny" emphasized her cheeriness so the new image in "Missing You - 2016" needed to be strong. However, the role of Hee-joo is quite vague.

"The reason I chose this movie but worried at the same time was because of Hee-joo's unique character. I challenged myself to this unusual character, but when I started making the movie, I became worried. I couldn't relate to her. The characters in "Sunny - 2010" or "Miss Granny" were hard to deal with but at least I related to them. But Hee-joo is innocent but cruel at the same time so I found it hard to bring that part out".

Hee-joo is hard to justify. She tried to be everything director Mo Hong-jin asked for but she couldn't bring out the best and she blames herself for it.

"I just think I wasn't good enough. I should be doing something that I am sure and confident about, but I couldn't and I'm worried about how much of the audience will understand Hee-joo. I wish I had depicted her better, but I hope the audience understands".

We took a look at the primary base of Shim Eun-kyung's problems. She was unstable about her future like anyone would at her age.

"I wondered if I should continue acting. I also thought I have been looking straight ahead for too long. I always thought about the peak which was only about success and not disappointing people. I don't know what's right".

Worries are just worries. Shim Eun-kyung is coming out with "Fabricated City", "The Princess and the Matchmaker", "Queen of Walking", "The Mayor" and more this year. She's guaranteeing her talent. But at the same time, we would like to comfort the actress who is always blaming herself.
