Kim Tae-hee wants recognition as a real actor
Kim Tae-hee (Fight) will be the next guest on the Park Joong-hoon Show, the new KBS talk show that recently kicked off its run with a rare interview with movie star Jang Dong-gun last month. (She, like Jang, is known to be good friends with host Park.) The program has been doing well in the ratings, probably because it has managed to score interviews with pretty high-profile entertainers like Jang and Kim, as well as Jung Woo-sung and Choi Jin-young.
Kim is generally liked for her sweet, pretty image and her smarts, but is widely known as a limited actress. On the program, which was taped on the 2nd, she acknowledged that reputation and explained her desire to move past it: “I am always given the labels of Seoul University graduate or top CF queen, but now I’d like to be valued properly as an actor.”
Personally, I don’t find Kim to be a particularly compelling actress, but I can admire that she recognizes her weaknesses, and it’s obvious that she’s been trying to stretch her acting skills in recent years. She’s built up her success more through her image than her projects, but from the way she talks in interviews, it appears she’s not content to skate by on her looks.
Kim Tae-hee’s episode of the Park Joong-hoon Show airs on January 4.
