Eugene talks about her new drama role
Creating Destiny [인연 만들기] is actress-singer Eugene‘s next project, and the star recently spoke out about the cheerful romantic comedy. She plays a lawyer-to-be who had grown up in Australia, who has a “Tom and Jerry-like” series of encounters with Ki Tae-young, the man with whom she is set up for an arranged marriage. (I presume “Tom and Jerry-like” means their relationship is antagonistic, rather than one always trying to kill the other, who always outsmarts him.)
The drama features many veteran actors like Ban Hyo-jung, Im Hyun-shik and Kang Nam-gil, and is as much about familial love as it is about romantic love. Eugene explained why she picked this project, saying, “When I read the script, the plot was incredibly refreshing. … I think this will be an original drama. If you consider that most of the dramas these days show young people falling in love and their parents opposing the match, this drama starts off the compete opposite.”
Eugene explained that it was easier getting into character because she is similar to her character; they both enjoy romantic manhwas and grew up overseas. They both also have bright and upbeat personalities, so acting the part is not terribly difficult.
Creating Destiny is scheduled for an October 10 premiere.
