    "I read the script in one sitting and I liked it. At the time I was wrapping up a TV drama I appeared in, so I was looking for my next project, and I decided to get on board instantly. Most of all, I didn't want to miss the chance to work with veteran actors like Kim Myung-min and Oh Dal-soo," she said.

    Asked how she handled the burden of her first period film, she said, "I worked hard on my diction and tone of voice. But I loved wearing hanbok, or traditional Korean dress. It was also great to have more time to contemplate my role while filming, unlike in a TV series, which often forces actors into a hectic shooting schedule."

    The film will hit local theaters on Feb. 8.
