Actress Kim Tae-hee has said she has become greedy about seeing the productions she stars in do well after the success of last year's TV series "IRIS".

"I never dwelled on movie admissions or TV ratings before but I've started to become greedy about them after seeing "IRIS" become a hit", the 30-year-old actress said to reporters during a press conference for her upcoming film "Grand Prix" on Thursday.

"I used to just rest comfortably, my mind at peace, after I'm done filming but this time, I've been feeling very nervous and worried a lot as well", she added.

"IRIS" became a national phenomenon in Korea last year for its intense storyline, global location shoots and a star-studded cast including actors Lee Byung-hun, Kim So-yeon and Jung Joon-ho.

The drama sparked a frenzy among viewers around the country and dominated weekly TV ratings charts during its two-month run.

"Grand Prix", also starring singer and actor Yang Dong-geun, is about two jockeys who befriend each other while competing in the grand prix with a new horse.

The pic is set for a release around the Korean thanksgiving holidays in late September.

Kim, rose to fame after appearing in the hit SBS TV series "Stairway to Heaven" in 2003 alongside Hallyu stars kwon Sang-woo and Choi Ji-woo and has since appeared in several dramas and movies.

Yang, who debuted as a hip-hop singer, is known for playing unconventional characters with his unique style of acting.

He is making his acting comeback after more than two years through "Grand Prix" -- he was discharged from the army a few months ago after fulfilling the country's mandatory two-year military duties.
