[Ask an Actor] Jo Yeo-jung

We’ve been busy behind the scenes with the BeanieBox, but that doesn’t mean we took a break from working to land interviews for our Ask an Actor series. Our next interview will be with Jo Yeo-jung!

Jo Yeo-jung made her acting debut in 2003 and has been in a number of critically acclaimed films and dramas. Jo’s most recent drama was the heart-breaking melo, A Beautiful World, and her most recent film was the darkly comedic thriller, Parasite. Directed by Bong Joon-ho, Parasite made history by becoming the first Korean film to win the Cannes Film Festival’s highest honor, the Palme D’or. In Korea, Jo Yeo-jung won Best Actress at the Chunsa Film Art Awards for her role as Yeon-gyo.

If you have any questions for Jo Yeo-jung, leave them in the comments! We’ll select some of the most interesting questions and include them in our interview.

Deadline: We will cut off accepting questions on August 28.

Hello!! Nice to meet you! I saw Parasite in Tallinn. The audience enjoyed it. At first everyone was laughing a lot. I wonder if the funny parts were meant for us to "lose guard" like your character did. Why do you think Yeon-kyo trusted everybody this easily? And what is the most important thing you learned from the story?

1.I've seen you in a wonderful variety of roles, such as from the first installment of I Need Romance to Parasite! And your characters often leave a deep impression!

Do you have a character that you played that you felt a great affinity with, or left a lasting impression on you?

2. You're like a trailblazer to me in the refreshing way you pick and portray roles!

Is there any type of character you would love to play in the future? Or any areas that you wish to challenge yourself in?

What were your initial thoughts on the story when you received the offer and script for parasite? Did you expect it to reach the level of recognition it has received? In your opinion what is it about the film that has earned it all the praise it has received?
Now being part of Korean cinema history do you feel accomplished as an actress or do you hope to reach new levels in the future?
What are your thoughts of the future of Korean cinema now that it has started to become more recognized internationally in recent years? Also congratulations for the Palme D’or and good luck in getting selected for the Oscar's nomination, I hope that Korean makes history there too.
Do you have any actors or directors in mind that you would like to work with in the future? Are there any genres or roles that you are unfamiliar with as an actress that you would like give a try in the future?
