Jo Yeo-jung, "I want to be seen as an adventurous actress"

2012/05/20 | Permalink | Source

Actress Jo Yeo-jung revealed that she wanted to be seen as an actress who seemed adventurous through her revealing scenes.

The sixth audition "Devil of Desire" on the SBS public audition talk show "Go Show" on the 18th starred Jo Yeo-jung, Kim Min-joon, Kim Dong-wook and Park Chul-min from "The Emperor's Concubine".

Jo Yeo-jung said, "I wasn't happy with the limited roles I was given as a rich daughter and such because of my looks".

"I stopped being active altogether when I was in my twenties to get away from the average image. I didn't even watch TV much for about 10 years".

About her passion for success she said, "There are no main movies to think of when you hear my name. I was offered a role in "The Emperor's Concubine" and I wanted to work with director Kim Dae-seung so much I appealed desperately to him by visiting his office personally".

When she was asked if she hesitated because of the exposure scene, she said, "Has there been any case where a movie with exposure went unnoticed? Exposure is always an issue. I want to be seen as an adventurous actress".

The movie "The Emperor's concubine" is an erotic historical movie about love and lust and the politics of madness. To be released in June.
