Actress Kang Ye-won is hoping her humorous side will once again lure cinemagoers, this time in a comedy about secret agents.
Kang plays a woman who takes one part-time job after another while struggling to find full-time employment in "Part-Time Spy," which is scheduled for release on March 16.
"When I was first offered the role, I couldn't figure out how to portray the character, so I started changing my look," she said. "I thought hard about my appearance from head to toe."
She believes comedic roles suit her best. "I've mostly played eccentric roles -- lunatics or losers -- and that seems to have turned male fans off. But I feel more comfortable playing such roles, because there's no pressure to look your best."
In the new film, Kang's character tries to acquire as many certificates as she can in the belief that they will help her get a regular job.
"I actually have a motorcycle license, which I got for my previous film, 'Quick.' I passed the test on my second attempt," she said. "'Quick' drew 3 million viewers. I just hope my new film is as popular."
