Korean actress Kim Yunjin has said it took her a while to decide if she wanted to play another mother role.

Kim made the remark on Thursday during a press conference for new thriller flick "Heartbeat" as she explained to reporters on how she made the decision to play the role Yeon-hee.

"I didn't choose this role thinking that I will be able to express my maternal instincts once again but because the overall script was written very well", Kim said.

"Even though the storyline and appearance of the movie maybe similar to the mother roles that I played in "Seven Days" and "Harmony", Yeon-hee was different in that she is fragile, feminine and very complex".

She further said, "To be honest, I needed more time to make my decision because I was hesitant since it was a maternal role but I didn't want to lose out on this great opportunity".

"Heartbeat", helmed by director Yoon Jae-geun and also starring Korean actor Park Hae-il, is about a mother who has to save her daughter and a son who must protect his mother.

The suspense thriller will open in local theaters on January 6.
