Actress Park Min Young expressed her excitement for the new season of MBCâ€™s â€˜High Kick 3â€˜, which is scheduled to air sometime in September. During a recent interview, she said that she would even be open to playing a cameo role if she were given the opportunity.
Park Min Young actually jumpstarted her acting career with â€˜High Kickâ€˜, and for that, she and fellow actors Jung Il Woo and Kim Bum are forever grateful to director Kim Byung Wook.
â€œIâ€™m really looking forward to it, and I plan on watching every episode. Iâ€™m even open to play a cameo role on the show if they let me!â€
Although a small role on a show like â€˜High Kickâ€™ is something she would like to try, she felt quite the opposite about being casted for a leading role in a sitcom. She didnâ€™t feel it was something she could easily pursue, but she did want to maybe undertake a role in a romantic comedy like MBC TVâ€™s â€˜The Best Loveâ€˜ or SBS TVâ€™s â€˜Scent of a Womanâ€˜.
â€œI watched up until the second episode of â€˜Scent of a Womanâ€™, and I really enjoyed it. As a woman, itâ€™s not easy to play a part that requires you to be on TV with nerd glasses and messy hair, but Kim Sun Ah is so talentedâ€“ she can pull off any character. The scene where sheâ€™s at the bank telling the teller how she saved all her moneyâ€“ it kind of reminded me of myself when times were tougher back in the day.â€
In a year or so, Park Min Young would like to take up a role in something a little more melodramatic. Sheâ€™s tried a few different genres, but not something melodramatic and so itâ€™s on her list of things to do.As far as entertainment programs, she has no plans to guest star on any of them just yet. â€œIâ€™m kind of boring,â€ she said.
â€œI canâ€™t act when you tell me to do it on the spot, but when Iâ€™m in front of a camera, I get in the zone. When it comes to entertaining people, its exactly the opposite. Itâ€™s fun to joke around with my staff members, but when you ask me to do it in front of a camera, Iâ€™m awkward. I was on â€œYaShimManManâ€ a few years back and everyone on the show seemed to know what they were doing except me.â€
She wasnâ€™t too turned off by the idea of appearing on KBSâ€™s â€™1 Night 2 Daysâ€˜ or MBCâ€™s â€™Infinite Challengeâ€˜, however. â€œItâ€™s a little frightening to think about revealing my true self to the whole world, but because everyone on the show do it so well, I feel like they would do a good job leading me through it. Itâ€™s something I would like to try at least once. I especially enjoyed the female actress episode of â€˜1N2Dâ€™. I donâ€™t know if I can imagine myself actually on the show though, (laughs)â€
Park Min Young has been picked up for a new KBS2TV drama titled â€œMan of Honorâ€ that airs every Wednesday and Thursday starting October 12th.
