Kim Jung-eun to Continue to Play 'Princess'

2005/09/12 | 775 views | Permalink | Source

Actress Kim Jung-eun, heroine in SBS drama "Princess LuLu", has reversed her previous decision to stop acting in the drama.

Kim plays the role of Hee-su, a pampered member of a Chaebol family. Since its July 27 premiere, the drama has been continuously criticized for excessive product placement and unrealistic storylines.

On Saturday, Kim posted on her Internet fan cafe an entry titled "I am sorry". In the entry, she said she no longer has any confidence in acting in a story that is not convincing and has been forcibly extended.

She also said, "Due to the flow of the drama, which is becoming increasingly difficult to understand, I cannot force the viewers to accept my insincerity and I am no longer confident in portraying a character that changes at every episode".

She also criticized the current drama production system. "I had to shoot the episode for Thursday that very afternoon, and it was only Saturday that I could get the script for the next Wednesday's episode".

Viewers who read the article posted varying reactions on the Internet board of the drama. While some of them agreed with her assessment of the problems of the TV production system, others criticized her for being irresponsible.

The program's staff managed to persuade Kim to continue shooting. She appeared on the set of the drama on Sunday.
