Actress Kim Go-eun played the role of a troubled teenager in her latest film "Canola." The film deals with an emotional bonding between a girl and her long-lost grandmother as they reunite about a decade later.
"Playing a delinquent teenage girl was a little hard in the beginning of the film as I couldn't relate to the character," Kim said. "I didn't think of running away from home nor dropping out of school during my childhood, as I lived in China until I went to middle school in Korea," she recalls.
When asked how she felt about co-starring with veteran actress Youn Yuh-jung, she said she felt no pressure at all. "I felt close to her from the start as if we were really grandmother and granddaughter," she said.
Debuted with a controversial role in the 2012 film "A Muse," which is about an affair between a poet in his 70s and a teenage school girl, Kim continues to build her filmography, appearing in several films with challenging roles.
"I wanted to build my acting career step by step. Unlike my initial plan, I made my debut abruptly after a couple of independent films, so I had a hard time at the beginning but I think it eventually helped me to grow as an actress," Kim said. "I hope to go distance without many ups and downs."
