◆ “After the award, there were tears of joy and a sense of regret”
Song Hye Kyo’s most recent news is of her winning an award. This past December, she was awarded “This Year’s Female Movie” for her screen comeback in Today at the 2011 Female Movie Awards. After winning the award, Song Hye Kyo’s eyes were filled with tears. What could be the meaning behind that day’s fallen tears? While half of Song Hye Kyo’s tears signified joy, the other half signified regret.
“It was wonderful. I was very happy to receive the award in itself that was given by netizens who loved the movie and by female film makers. On the other hand, I thought of the director and staff who experienced much hardship and worked hard during the filming of Today. In addition, since it was a small film, it was not granted the opportunity to be properly screened.”
For Song Hye Kyo’s acting life, Today is a project that is a turning point. For 15 years since her debut, the spotlight shined on her being a top Hallyu star, a Korean beauty representative, etc. This work gave her the leap into ‘actor’ and her passion and commitment clearly showed in her choice.
“Before I became an actress, I enjoyed Director Lee Jung Hyang’s projects. So, throughout the filming of Today, I was able to perform happily. Of course, the character was not tough. However, I did not have to understand ‘Da Hye’ the character in order to act – I became that person.”
In the movie, we were shown features of Song Hye Kyo’s acting style that is different from what we were used to. Her well balanced acting captured feelings of perseverance and control of expression. Anyone who watched the movie could see that Song Hye kyo abandoned her own self and completely integrated into character. It is obvious that with this film, Song Hye Kyo became a more mature actor.
