Uee, a member of K-pop girl group After School, seems to be gaining confidence as an actress and hopes to build her career even further after appearing in a couple of dramas.
She recently wrapped up filming the MBC drama "Golden Rainbow," in which she played one of the main characters in the drama, showing how she has evolved from playing minor roles.
She described the last four months as a huge learning curve during which she benefited from the advice of more experienced actors. "Now I want to try a bit lighter drama or a romantic comedy in the future where I can show more bright and cheerful side of myself," she said.
She said she always tries to be polite and punctual, and not let her growing success go to her head.
Her timekeeping became an issue when she was invited to throw the ceremonial first pitch at a baseball game a few years ago but failed to make it after showing up five minutes late.
"That was a bitter experience for me. Since then, I've never been late for an appointment," she said. "I developed the habit of arriving two hours early so I never feel stressed or anxious about not making it in time."
Asked about her next career move, she said, "As After School's new album is due to be released around July or August, I think I will start preparing for it in April or May. Personally, I want to do more acting. so I'm waiting for some good chances to come my way."
