[News] AoA’s Hyejeong shares her thoughts on her acting debut in ‘Cheongdamdong Alice’

AoA‘s Hyejeong recently sat down for an interview following her final filming of the SBS drama ‘Cheongdamdong Alice‘ and shared her thoughts on her acting debut.

Hyejeong, who starred as Han Sae Kyung’s (Moon Geun Young) younger sister Sae Jin shared,“There were a lot of [interesting] aspects, and I liked that I could learn a lot from the experience. It was interesting because I experienced things for the first time like matching one’s eye level. Because there were a lot of scenes in which I appeared with my character’s family, I had more scenes in which I was listening rather than saying my own lines, so I learned a lot of methods about how to react. Geun Young unni taught me in a friendly manner how to position my eyes and the angle of my face. Although I can’t act, I worried that I would hear even worse criticisms. Although there was pressure, I received strength from the support of people around me.”

When asked which role from ‘Cheongdamdong Alice’ she would have liked to take on, Hyejeong chose Shin In Hwa (Kim Yuri). She explained, “At first I thought she’s only a cold, workaholic woman, but as I kept watching, she is a woman who knows how to love. Kim Yuri sunbae’s acting ability was also very good. It was a shame that I didn’t have any opportunities to act with her.”

 

AoA’s Hyejeong, who always dreamed of becoming a singer, lost the third round of a supermodel contest during high school and was cast on the street by her current agency manager on her way back home. Hyejeong also gave a shout out to her mother who secretly applied for the contest on her daughter’s behalf. The singer revealed, “My mom originally dreamed of becoming a celebrity and always told me that she’d wish that I fulfill her dream on her behalf. I found out that my mom sent in the application three days before the contest.”

Hyejeong then began her trainee period and made her debut as a member of AoA last August. She was cast in ‘Cheongdamdong Alice’ soon afterwards through an audition. Hyejeong expressed her love for both music and acting, stating, “There is an electric feeling when I perform on stage. My heart beats fast. I like that I can relate to people through acting. A few days ago, maybe because I missed the drama after it ended, I was thinking that I want to continue to act.”

Hyejeong also opened up about her experience going on fantasy dates with fellow idol stars on tvN‘s ‘The Romantic & Idol‘, revealing, “At first I went with the feeling of ‘I should have a good time and come back’, but after filming day after day, I started to feel burdened. After having a good time with each other as if [going on a college trip], when the staff asked who will I choose during the interview I went blank. Although it was a broadcast, I was too comfortable and [energetic], and I think that I should have been a little bit more careful.” She also revealed that she does not go into the KakaoTalk chat room with the other guests from the show due to the fact that she doesn’t have a cellphone, adding, “I don’t know what they talk about in there.”

Hyejeong also revealed her goal to film action scenes. “I’m not athletic, but I think it will be a rewarding [experience]. Although it may be difficult to film even one scene, I will probably feel like I accomplished something.”
