Choi Song-hyeon transforms herself from the elegant and clean-cut professional Koreans know from TV into a sexy smoker with long wavy hair and a leather jacket in her big-screen acting debut in "Insadong Scandal."
Although she has a minor part, Choi says she is happy her dream to be an actress came true. In the film, she shows a dramatically different side of herself. "It was very difficult to distinguish the life in the movie from reality," she admits.
After working as a presenter at KBS for two years, she surprised everyone when she quit the coveted job to become an actress. She made her debut in SBS drama "Gourmet" last year.
"Insadong Scandal" revolves around the restoration of a Chosun-era masterpiece and stars Kim Rae-won and Uhm Jung-hwa. Choi's character plots a scam with an art restoration expert played by Kim.
