Kim Ok-bin, who stars in the season's most anticipated film "Thirst," has spoken about working alongside Song Kang-ho. "Acting with Song, I really felt that he is a true, genuine actor. He was near perfect in every scene, and I learned so much from him," she said.
Asked about her thoughts about the bed scenes at the time of casting, Kim said, "I didn't want to think too much about the nudity issue. When I learned about the role, I thought it was something that all actresses want to do at some point in their career."
Director Park Chan-wook had high praise for his star. "She showed so many different sides of the character, and is such a versatile actress. She will become a big star in Korean film industry."
"Thirst" is a melodrama about the illicit love affair between a priest who becomes a vampire after getting a blood transfusion from an unknown person and the wife of his friend. It will be released in Korea on April 30.
