Actress Kim Seo Hyung sat down for an interview on June 28th to discuss the end of her TVN drama Mine.
“Mine” is a drama about strong and ambitious women who overcome the prejudices of society in order to find what really belongs to them. Lee Bo Young played Seo Hee Soo, a former top actress and wife of the second son of the Hyowon Group Chaebol family, and Kim Seo Hyung played Jung Seo Hyun, the wife of the Hyowon Group’s eldest son.
“Mine” enjoyed solid ratings throughout its lifetime and achieved a personal best of 10.5 percent. Kim Seo Hyung said she expected it to become popular, adding, “It has been a while since all of my recent projects have made me feel so good.”
Her character, Jung Seo Hyun, is a cold and charismatic woman from an elegant and well-mannered family background. Although she is married to Han Jin Ho (Park Hyuk Kwon), the eldest son of the Hyowon Group (whose first marriage was divorced), she is in love with another woman.
Kim Seo Hyung said, “When I first read the script, I thought that I had to be careful and responsible in portraying the character. But I didn’t feel pressured or intimidated into playing a character belonging to a sexual minority. I thought if I had the chance, I could do it well. “
She continued, “I chose the drama because it was a romance. It wasn’t a story about sexual minorities, it was a story about love. As an actor, I felt a sense of ambition to play this character. Her background is also very different from mine. Every actor strives to play such a cool role. When I’ve thought about playing this type of character in the past, I’ve always believed that I can do it comfortably. That’s why I decided on this project. “
In “Mine” Jung Seo Hyun unites with her first love Choi Su Ji (Kim Jung Hwa). Kim Seo Hyung said, “Every scene where Jung Hwa and I met was passionate. Our first shooting together took place on the bridge of the Hyowon Group and we pretended we’d known each other for months. I was grateful to be able to act on an equal footing with her. “
In the last episode, Jung Seo Hyun becomes President of the Hyowon Group. In the past she had given up her first love, but in the end she called Choi Su Ji and said, “I’m going where you are.” Kim Seo Hyung said, “I don’t think finding Su Ji means that she will attain true love. I think she is ready to meet Su Ji in any form, be it friendship or something else, and that is also her way of facing her own self. Within the Hyowon Group, Seo Hyun has found what really belongs to her. I hope it didn’t end with an exclamation mark for the audience. “
The relationship between Jung Seo Hyun and Seo Hee Soo in “Mine” was also an important point for the audience. Kim Seo Hyung said, “I think Lee Bo Young is great. It’s amazing that she can take care of her children and work at the same time. In our conversations we learned that we had gone through similar things as actors, so we had a lot of things to relate to. For this reason, our chemistry could only be good. “
