Actress Jung So-min has been busy this year starring in a couple of TV series back to back.
"The best thing I did in my twenties was choosing this job," said Jung, who will turn 30 soon. "I used to get really stressed out as I tended to be harsh on myself. But now I think I've learned how to enjoy my job."
Jung said she has a lot in common with the role she played in the recently-ended TV series "Because This is My First Life" on cable channel tvN.
"When I read the script, I felt I was destined to do this. The script was so fun, and I found a lot of similarities with the character and myself, so I felt very attached to the role," said Jung.
When asked if she has ever had a slump, she said, "I'm a kind of person who feels comfortable when things are perfectly being prepared. In the beginning of my career, I wasn't sure that things were going well and I started to feel anxious and questioned my way of doing things, because I wasn't able to get immediate results from my hard work."
"But now I start to feel that I am getting answers to the questions I used to have," she added. "I realized that without all the efforts I made in the past I would not be where I am now. I believe all my hard work will help me grow in the future. That makes me relax and enjoy the present instead of getting stressed out."
