Actress Lee Se-young received favorable reviews for her performance as the daughter of a wealthy family in the TV series "The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop," which wrapped up on Sunday.
"Just when I thought I had totally lost myself in my role, the viewers came along and shared their love with me," Lee said with a laugh. "Good actors are described as having a thousand faces. But in my case, it might be one hundred faces."
Lee made her debut on a children's TV show at the age of 5. Her cute appearance and outstanding acting skills won Lee roles in various films and dramas. But she took a break from acting when she was in high school and resumed her career after entering Sungshin Women's University as an acting major.
"The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop," offered Lee a chance to show her mature side and shake off her image as a child actress. "I'm already in my mid-20s. I thought it was time I showed a different side of myself as an actress. I was desperate to make a breakthrough and move on to the next level," she said.
Lee said she had received many fan letters. "I couldn't be happier if my performances make people feel comforted and happy," she said.
