Kim Tae Hee, who is taking on the lead role in SBS's new drama 'Yong Pal, gave the reasons on deciding to join the cast, and why she initially hesitated on accepting the role.
At the drama's press July 30 conference held at SBS Hall in Seoul, Kim Tae Hee told the reporters, "When I watched up to the fourth episode, it felt like I was watching an interesting novel."
The actress added, "Truthfully, I had doubts about acting on the drama because up until the fourth episode, I had too little screen time. But the production was just so great and I thought that if I'm able to just do my best for part of a well made drama, then I think that's okay too," and emphasized, "That's how much I liked the script."
Her lack of screen time she's mentioning is probably due to the fact that she plays a character who's been in a coma for long time.
She continued, "After seeing the highlight video I feel good because [the drama] was made well just as how I imagined it. Regardless of how many parts I'm given, I think it'll be a meaningful project."
You can catch Kim Tae Hee, along with Joo Won in the drama when it first airs this coming August 5 at 10 p.m. (KST)!
