Kim Hye-soo plays a troublemaking actress in her new film scheduled to be released next week.
After a press screening for her new film "Familyhood" in early this month, Kim said she was attracted to the film by its funny storyline.
"It was the first time that I have appeared as a pregnant woman for most of a movie. I also had to wear special makeup simulating the side effects of plastic surgery. It was quite a new experience, but I enjoyed it," she said.
The comedy revolves around a movie star who is embroiled in a series of scandals.
Shocked by her boyfriend's infidelity and worried about her declining popularity, the scandal-plagued star fakes being pregnant.
"I had to wear a fake belly. It fit me well; so when I was wearing it, I actually felt like I was pregnant sometimes," Kim said.
"This is the most loveable role she has played," boasted Kim Tae-gon, the film's director.
"Familyhood" will hit local theaters on June 29.
