IU talks about starring in upcoming Netflix film series 'Persona'

AKP STAFF

IU opened up about starring in the upcoming Netflix film series 'Persona'.

At the March 27th press conference for the 4-part short film series, IU, Yoon Jong Shin, and directors Lim Pil SungKim Jong Kwan, and Jeon Go Woon discussed the project that will feature IU as 4 different characters in 4 different films. IU, who'll be making her movie debut in 'Persona', expressed, "I was surprised to get such an offer. I enjoyed watching these directors' films in the past, so it's amazing that I got to work with them. I tend to be shy, but I talked about myself easily at our first meeting. Since then, I felt we had good teamwork. It was a fun project, a fresh attempt. The four directors interpreted me from different angles, so it felt like I was given the characters. It was also a challenge. I think I'll remember this experience for a long time."

On the positive response about her acting, IU responded, "I feel good about receiving warm reviews. I dreamed of acting since I was young, and I wanted to become an actor before becoming a singer. After debuting as a singer, I was involved in a number of projects, and I put my all into them. Through these projects, I learned what I was inexperienced with. I think that's why in the viewers' eyes, my acting is changing."

She said on the film series, "In the case of this project, I was very lucky. There weren't any directors whose outlooks were different than mine. They were able to help me understand fully, and they were so open-minded that I was able to voice my opinion without being intimidated. To be honest, I didn't know it was such a big project. I didn't know I'd get this much attention when I was first offered the role. I was happy to get the offer, and I was determined to work hard. So many people became interested. I never imagined we'd hold a press conference like this. I just did it because it was such an honor, and a fresh attempt."

'Persona' premieres on April 5 through Netflix.

IU has never failed to shock me. She always take on a harder role and never went with the typical "school-girl" concept. I can see why people respect her.
