"Love Clinic" Kang Ye-won, "Aromi is cool"

2015/05/05 | 1543 views | Permalink | Source

Kang Ye-won, or Aromi as she is nicknamed, is pretty cool unlike the person we saw dropping tears out of her big eyes in the TV show "Real Men".

Kang Ye-won plays Gil Sin-seol, a urologist who hasn't had much experience in relationships in the adult rated comedy "Love Clinic". The movie is about a man and a woman who look normal on the outside but are defected inside. Wang Seong-gi (Oh Ji-ho) is a gynecologist who is physically defected because of a trauma and Gil Sin-seol only know men on the outside but not on the inside. This comedy romance may look obvious but it's not.

""Love Clinic" is much more serious than other romantic comedies. It's realistic. The process of which the man and the woman overcome their distress and get close is fun. I chose Gil Sin-seol because she is very much like me".

Kang Ye-won is like Gil Sin-seol in many ways. She's honest and carefree and has the ability to make her opponent feel comfortable. She's like the sister next door.

According to Kang, having many relationship experiences and being good at them are completely different things. Despite her experience, she thinks she's not so good at them.

"I am too carefree to fall in love with someone at first sight or feel tenacious for someone. I also think there's more to think about then men in this life. I don't like hanging with men and I don't want to rush into getting married. If I have a fated partner then he will come to be when the time comes. I don't want to die thinking about the future (laughs). Funny thing is, I might not be in a relationship myself, but I do give a lot of advice".

Could it be because of her personality? She claims she's not at all confident about seducing someone. She wouldn't even dream of a character like Meng In-yeong (Ha Joo-hee) who continuously seduces Wang Seong-gi. She said, "No" loud and clear.

"It's the one role I can't play. I can't do it because that's just not me. It doesn't have anything to do with taking off my clothes and I'd prefer getting seduced but not doing it myself. I want to do what I can do. I don't want to try something impossible for me. Ha Joo-hee was good at it and I felt jealous".

Kang Ye-won is also afraid of comedy as much as seduction. She makes all laugh in "Love Clinic" but this was the result of her efforts and teamwork with Oh Ji-ho.

"The drunk scene had to be taken ten times. I kept asking the producer to do it again and again. I wanted to show something unique and not just a drunken image. Comedy is hard. You have to coordinate with your co-star and thankfully Oh Ji-ho and I were alright. I was lucky to have met him".

This is her first movie after starring in the TV show "Real Men". It might have pressured her that she had to continue the reputation she gained from a TV show but she was optimistic.

"I think about it, then I forget about it soon. I just smile about it; I can't help it. This is the way I was born. I always try to think about the good side".

There was a time when Kang Ye-won couldn't even look a stranger in the eye. "Real Men" changed Kang Ye-won for sure. She's braver, brighter and stronger. She's going to star in more TV shows from now on although she's terribly busy these days.

"Acting and entertainment are really tough. I don't know how I am going to make it through this. Still, if I have the chance, I'll do anything. My heart is brighter than before. I don't think I would've done anything else if it wasn't for acting.
