[Lily's Take] Kim Go-eun Gained 8kg For Her New Character in "Sunset in My Hometown"

Actress Kim Go-eun will be greeting the viewers with her newly changed person in the upcoming movie, "Sunset in My Hometown".

According to the actress, her character Seon-mi is a feisty and confident heroine. Upon tackling her new role, Kim Go-eun decided to make some changes to bring Seon-mi to life. Along with mastering the Jeolla dialect, she has gained 8kg (about 17.6lb) in weight, which is a big deal for an actress.

Regarding her decision, she explained, "I thought that gaining weight would help greatly in creating Seon-mi's girl-next-door image and bubbliness. The director agreed to the idea so enthusiastically, so it was easy".

"As much as I focused on changing my outward appearance, I also thought that my dialect shouldn't sound awkward. I've put many hours in studying the dialect with my teacher. Also, the local townspeople at the scene gave me many tips".

From the photos revealed, the viewers are shared that it is unbelievable that Kim Go-eun gained 8kg because she still looks so thin.

"Sunset in My Hometown" will be released this upcoming July.
