Interview Transcript – 

Kim Sun Ah 

1. What was your biggest concern when it came to portraying your character? 

Kim Sun Ah: My character’s job revolves around understanding the psychology of others. For this role, I met experts in psychology to better fulfil my role as a counsellor. Through this, I’ve learned that many people deal with mental illnesses, more than I previously knew. I’ve learned a lot while preparing myself for this show. 

2. Your previous dramas were successful and well-known. Do you feel any pressure starring in this one because of that? 

Kim Sun Ah: I feel some pressure, but it is not overwhelming. I chose to act in my previous dramas because I wanted to shoot something fun and good. I don’t ponder on whether or not the show will be successful or not. Children of Nobody is a little darker than my previous shows, but it’s intriguing. I think people will watch it if it is entertaining.

3. Is it difficult playing this role following your last drama series, where your character had such a strong personality? Were there any challenges filming this as it is a thriller? 

Kim Sun Ah: The last character I played was memorable, and the drama series was also well-received. It also had a strong, recognisable show name, My Lovely Sam Soon. Normally, I don’t think too deeply when choosing a character to play. It’s not easy getting a good role, and a good script. I think I’ve been lucky since I’ve played a lot of fun roles. I want to take on a larger variety of roles, and I’m grateful to be a part of this drama series. 

4. In an interview you were previously engaged in, you mentioned wanting to play a cheerful character. However, you’re currently starring in a thriller. Why did you choose to be in this drama series?

Kim Sun Ah: I’ve wanted to play a cheerful character for years, as I haven’t had the chance to be in a light-hearted role. However, sometimes, you can’t be too picky with roles.  

The atmosphere on set for a thriller is not that different, except for some aesthetics and how you feel. This genre has you nervous and excited at the same time. The camera work is interesting as well. I’m really enjoying shooting this show. 

5. The chemistry between you two is important to the viewers. How do you two work alongside each other?
