"It's all thanks to Tae-ri that this movie was made".

Director Kim So-yeon-IV of the short film "Moon Young" said this about Kim Tae-ri. "Moon Young" was released in 2015 and it's the debuting film of Kim Tae-ri, the rising star of "The Handmaiden".

The actress wasn't there at the press conference. Director Kim said, "If the movie breaks through an audience of 10,000, I will organize an interview with her".

"Moon Young" is the story of Moon-yeong, a girl who doesn't speak but looks at the world with her camera. The movie was invited to the 41st Seoul Independence Film Festival, the 21st Indie Forum, the 6th Pride Film Festival and more. It was a hard movie to see as it sold out every time. Kim Tae-ri allowed for this to happen.

Director Kim said, "I met Kim Tae-ri first when she was in theater after university. She was feminine and cute so I didn't think she would suit this character".

"When I started filming her, she didn't care about the camera. She didn't look at the camera once".

"I decided it would be fun if someone like her could take on a dark role and completely become a different person. She didn't have much experience but she showed good concentration and did well. She was a natural without needing detailed explanations".

Kim Tae-ri shows how humans get hurt and overcome that pain in the movie "Moon Young".

Director Kim says, "She hides her pain by creating bigger ones. One needs to express pain if he or she is feeling it. The pain can be overcome by communicating with others.

The movie comes out on the 12th.
