Presenter-turned-actress Choi Song-hyeon says she has never for a moment regretted quitting Korea Broadcasting System (KBS), one of Korea's three major broadcasters.
She was speaking in a press conference for a new drama on cable channel tvN in Seoul on Wednesday after being cast in the leading role for "Mrs. Town."
"It's been over a year since I quit my presenter job at KBS, and now I don't even think about the reputation I had as a presenter," she said. "I just love being part of an ensemble and acting."
When filming her debut movie "Insadong Scandal," she was thrilled to be able to act but wasn't good at analyzing and understanding the character, let alone knowing much about the craft. "I think I've gained better understanding and knowledge about acting, so I'm enjoying shooting even more," she said.
Choi, who is playing the lead for the first time in the new show, faces some steamy love scenes. The drama will be aired every Friday midnight, with the first episode scheduled on Nov. 13.
