“Train to Busan” director, Yeon Sang Ho, talks about the acting of Sohee on a recent interview.
During an interview with media outlet Herald POP, the director was asked about the acting skills of former Wonder Girls member turned actress, Sohee. Apparently, viewers of the film have criticized Sohee for her acting.
Director Yeon Sang Ho the responds to the issue by saying, “I did not find her acting a shame at all. I am not even sure from what aspect of her acting is called as a shame.”
He also adds, “What I think is that Sohee’s image as a member of Wonder Girls is strong which is why talk like that is coming out. However, in the film, there was honestly no problem. I actually thought that she did well. The character was no even one who showed many things, but what I find quite a success was the case of Sohee and Choi Woo Sik. It was important for them to show the levity of teenagers.”
The director also reveals, “Some people think that the conversations between Sohee and Choi Woo Sik did not seem sincere. However, that reaction was the response that I had planned from the start. The way that teenagers act is fresher and lighter rather than sincere, isn’t it? I wanted it to be portrayed in a way that was not too sincere. That is why I thought that the scene of their exit would be a surprise to the viewers even more.”
He also adds, “Sohee and Choi Woo Sik acted well. There are even many people who saw the film who chose their exit as one of the scenes that made them sad.”
Meanwhile, the film “Train to Busan” premiered on July 20.
