[News] Ku Hye Sun Feels More Comfortable with Directing Over Acting
Ku Hye Sun revealed that she feels more comfortable working as a film director over actress.
During October 30’s broadcast of SBS Power FM’s Cine Town, Ku Hye Sun said, “I’m used to being called ‘director’ now. Everyone seems to be comfortable with it at the set.”
When DJ Gong Hyung Jin asked, “This might be a stupid question to ask, but do you feel more comfortable working as an actress? Or as a director?”
Ku Hye Sun answered, “I′m more comfortable when I’m directing.”
Having expected the opposite, Gong Hyung Jin asked for the reason to which Ku Hye Sun said, “I think it’s because I can decide on the time when I’m directing.”
Gong Hyung Jin said, “I filmed Angel Eyes with Ku Hye Sun and at the time there were many days where she couldn’t sleep. On some days she only had 20 minutes of sleep. I felt sorry to see that,” and Ku Hye Sun added, “After filming was over, I felt like I just had a dream.”
Meanwhile, Daughter is a film which Ku Hye Sun directed, wrote and starred in.
As Ku Hye Sun’s third directed film, it deals with a middle school girl’s struggle with her mom who raises her strictly with severe punishments. It was previously invited to The 19th Busan International Film Festival’s ‘Today’s Korean Film – Panorama’ section and is set to premiere on November 6.
