      Kim Ji-won appears in the hugely popular TV series "Descendants of the Sun," playing one of the four leads alongside Song Hye-kyo, Song Joong-ki and Jin Goo. She was nervous to headline a soap with these stars and tried to push herself to the limit to keep up with them.

      "I had to think very hard about how to set the tone of my voice because I have to speak like a soldier," Kim said. "But my efforts paid off, and I think I achieved more than I expected thanks to all the help I got from my co-stars."

      Her dream of becoming an actress that every neighborhood granny could recognize came true sooner than she thought thanks to the great popularity of "Descendants of the Sun."

      "I don't think you can really control how each and every opportunity will turn out," she said. "I never knew 'Descendants of the Sun' would come to me. It is a very meaningful and life-changing opportunity that helped me mature as an actress. Now, I will have to make decisions more carefully than ever and use this good opportunity to direct my career path."

      Kim is committed to whatever task she is given, but if she could choose her next role it would be a youthful and spirited character.
