KARA Han Seung Yeon Shares Thoughts on Her First Lead Role in 'Show Me The Ghost'
Han Seung Yeon returns to the silver screen with her first lead role in new horror comedy film "Show Me The Ghost" with actors Kim Hyun Mok and Hong Seung Bum.
The idol-turned-actress took on the role of Yeji, a person who is tired of life's uncertainties but still perseveres to prove herself that she can do anything she puts her mind into. Interestingly, she also has the amazing abilities to defeat supernatural beings and evil spirits.
When asked about her thoughts on her first lead role, Han Seung Yeon answered with delight, "I am thrilled and very happy. It was the first time that there was a one-year period between filming and the premiere, which is so new to me. It is a great movie, not complicated at all. So I hope the viewers will enjoy it."
She also shared her thoughts about trying out a new genre. "I took on roles that were mostly focused on being youthful. Though this work has that charm, too, but this differs from the rest because it is a new horror genre, which I like. Although I experienced a lot of stress during filming, I was drawn to the character of Yeji. But knowing that it is a great film, I maintained a bright and healthy mentality until now."
