Lee Se Younger – @star1 February 2022 Interview – the conversing cupboard

It was our 1st time acquiring a business enterprise card from an actress. Prain Worldwide Inc.’s Office environment Way of living Group Leader and Affiliated Actor, Lee Se-young. When she does not have everything on her program, she goes to the office and does every thing, from looking at the scripts to accomplishing dishes and cleaning, discovering her instant of resting and calming through doing so. She is made the Workplace Way of life Staff Chief for her contribution in major the energy to make the organization a much more wonderful ecosystem for the staff members to work in. When asked whether or not she would be promoted to a Director because of the good consequence of The Crimson Sleeve, she answered with a burst of enormous laughter, “I was doing work absent from the business (filming) very last calendar year, and my seat in the business went lacking. I need to be on the lookout for my desk very first.”

“I Still Come to feel LIKE CRYING WHEN I Assume OF THE Crimson SLEEVE’S ENDING.”

Debuting at the younger age of 5, she is by proper a veteran actress, obtaining walked on the route as an actor for the earlier 25 a long time. From 2019, she has been operating non-halt by means of The Crowned Clown, Medical doctor John, Memories, Kairos, and The Purple Sleeve, filling her filmography with a single venture after one more. A splendid splendor with the ideal proportion of eyes, nose, and mouth, on a deal with so little that it can be lined with a smartphone this actress suggests, “I want to stay a extended, simple lifetime.” “I want to be an actor who earns my maintain.” “This occupation to me is just like how a occupation is to a salaryman.” She under no circumstances places her pencil as she continues to produce down all the things, choosing every single of her words and phrases cautiously as she gives her answers. We also acquired to recognize why her lengthy-time fans gave her the nickname of ‘satto’ (wonderful but ridiculous). ‘The love tale of a courtroom maid who has nothing’ as instructed by Lee Se-young with her large, dazzling, twinkling eyes. It is as if The Pink Sleeve’s Deok-im comes to lifetime, narrating it with calmness nevertheless with a huge wave pounding loudly.

It has been a thirty day period considering the fact that The Pink Sleeve finished, yet there are ‘Red Sleeve fans’ who simply cannot seem to shift on from the lingering emotion immediately after the drama ends. Have you moved on from Deok-im?

I’m the variety of human being who generally moves on right off the bat as soon as the drama ends. That is due to the fact I need to embark on a new task and I need to have to established a new starting off issue for that. But then, this time all around, when I do interviews, go on broadcast shows, or go to pictorial periods, people all-around me continue to chat about The Crimson Sleeve. Then I’ll be reminded of the drama’s ending and feel like crying, and I’ll tear up.

The closing episode recorded 17.4% in ratings, which is an remarkable history.

Truthfully talking, I have by no means assumed that it’d do so very well like this. I just put my faith in the task, the director, and (Lee) Junho-ssi, filming diligently and enjoying my time on the set, so I was so joyful. The drama did so effectively that honestly, it feels a bit surreal. As a result, I check out not to be floating substantial up in the air, given that I’m worried that my ft will slide off the ground.

‘The king beloved the court maid. Did the court maid appreciate the king?’ the drama begins with this concern. How did you interpret Deok-im’s heart?

I feel that there’s no question Deok-im also loved San. It’s just that the thoughts have been not expressed because of to the problem. As the story progressed, Deok-im’s developing passionate inner thoughts to San were instead expressed as distressing, melancholic, and sorrowful. The line Deok-im reported correct before she passed absent was the only portion where she evidently expressed her legitimate inner thoughts: “Do you even now not know about it? If I didn’t like you, I would’ve finished everything to operate absent.” “I beloved you. But then, I also misplaced so quite a few items, and I did not develop into happy in its entirety.” I required to demonstrate that (through Deok-im).

It was unquestionably not effortless to portray those feelings only by eyes and facial expressions.

I understood the timeline, so I have structured the times when Deok-im was produced informed of her thoughts to San and when those emotions grew deeper, and then I acted appropriately. I did not say it out loud, but I required the viewers to know that she didn’t indicate it, while Deok-im was shown to be performing as if she did not really like San. In the second half of the drama, the thoughts grew further, but then the extreme kiss in the library finished with Deok-im remaining ordered to go away the palace. Deok-im was attempting to dwell her lifestyle diligently outside the house the palace, but she continued to skip San. ‘Ah I truly have misplaced that particular person I really cherished that man or woman.’ Then, she returned to the palace. The visual appearance of Hwabin gave way to a feeling of stress and uneasiness to type in Deok-im’s heart now, San’s coronary heart may well not be with her any longer. In episode 15, Deok-im expressed her earnest feelings by way of her gaze: ‘I just cannot say it out loud, but I enjoy you.’ ‘Please recognize me for getting an individual who just cannot stay away from rejecting you due to the fact of your position as the king.’ ‘I simply cannot arrive at out for you, but remember to do not enable go of me.’

The ending was very awesome, set on the boundary between aspiration and death.

I designed up my thoughts to do this undertaking since I loved the ending in the first novel. Even when the script was only out right until Episode 6, the component I was most curious of was the ending. On the day we shot the posters and the teasers, I noticed the phrase ‘the instant became forever’ and predicted that the drama was heading towards the exact same ending as the unique novel. It was also a wake-up call for me to keep focused due to the fact I have to portray it well for the sake of the tale heading towards the sad and ardent ending. ‘Please appreciate me.’ San’s line even now tugs at my heart. Is not it far too regrettable for two men and women who could adore every other wholly, only in demise?

When we viewed the producing clips, it seemed that laughter was hardly ever-ending on the established. Director Jang Ji-in stated that SanDeok couple pulled each one strange and weird pranks and jokes under the sunshine.

Need to I say that it was a section of the system of bringing the pressure and hype up though we have been on standby? Most of the time, we would be joking all around even though being in the posture for the true scene in the drama. There was the brow kiss scene and we had been owning hassle having the ideal angle, so Junho-ssi’s lips held touching the crown of my head. It was a complete day shooting and I experienced utilized products and solutions on my hair and I felt ashamed of my sweaty hair, so I reported jokingly, “If you lay a kiss there, you will pass out.” All people on the established laughed right after listening to that. Through the scene where by we fell into the pond, they stated that I appeared like I was executing bounce skis when I was slipping and retained mimicking my motion. It was a established entire of laughter.


We can’t pass up asking about your partnership with Lee Junho. Your chemistry in romance was also a perfect in shape for each and every other.

It was awesome and could not have been much better. Junho-ssi and I had this shared objective of exhibiting off our ideal chemistry. Soon after doing the job together for about 7 months, we naturally grew comfortable all-around each individual other and we had a potent religion in just about every other. The director regarded us as Jeongjo and Deok-im by themselves as we exchanged thoughts and there had been heaps of procedures of coordinating heading on as effectively. Almost everything was translated into the drama and it is probably the cause why SanDeok pair has been receiving lots of adore.

How is actor Lee Junho as an performing companion?

In the previous, I watched The Good Supervisor and I admired him for staying a quite gifted actor. He’s already on a degree wherever I wouldn’t dare to judge him. When it was verified that Junho-ssi would be portraying the position of Jeongjo, I reliable that he would do really well from the extremely starting and did not have any doubt about it. I observed the response right after The Crimson Sleeve aired, expressing, ‘I by no means realized that another person of idol origin could act nicely like this.’ I was actually shocked at that response. Junho-ssi was currently a great actor. As well as, he isn’t only great at his occupation, but he himself is a very good man or woman. Given that we have developed close and familiar with every other, the synergy involving us appears to have doubled in total. I want to supply my gratitude in direction of Junho-ssi for heading earlier mentioned and outside of to portray a interesting and charming San.

Your chemistry with the relaxation of the court docket lady squad (Ha Yully, Lee Eun-saem, Lee Min-ji) was also felt beyond the tv display screen.

It’s fully not simple to come across very good individuals like them as you function. Even in my real everyday living, I also have three near good friends who are like the court docket girl squad. Everybody is so valuable like gemstones and I take into consideration our relationship treasured, so we have agreed to have a meetup once each individual 3 weeks. It is our tiny group we created to study all the things we could think of.

Your practical experience is on the degree of Director (in the place of work), however you are even now performing constantly with out any rest. Did you have any moment of a slump?

I did have my moment of darkness all-around 2015, but I continued to go forward. I need to have to make my personal path and live my own lifestyle, but at that time, I did not have any undertaking coming in yet, I didn’t feel of remaining put devoid of undertaking anything, so I attended college diligently to score a scholarship. I did a make-up enterprise and even utilized for a trademark for it. It was also the minute I gave severe considered to acting. I understood that I desired to do some thing with all my heart and soul in get to transfer forward.

You are now 30. Is there any change with your attitude as compared to your 20s?

My birthday is in December, so I’m technically 29 many years outdated continue to. (laughs) There isn’t just about anything new. It is just that I can truly feel that my stamina isn’t what it utilised to be when I was younger? It helps make me feel that I really should nourish myself and lay the foundation for the long run although I’m nevertheless youthful and a lot more energetic.

Your target to reside a extended and straightforward existence is the exact same as Deok-im’s, but really do not you imagine that this time, you have hit a large jackpot?

I try not to spend far too substantially attention to it. It is the job that has strike it large. I’m somebody who is likely to continue performing in this job like a standard salaryman.

Hunting at Director Jang Ji-in’s job interview, she appeared to adore San and Deok-im so significantly. Is there anything Deok-im required to say to the director then?

‘Please keep in mind Deok-im who was running about brightly underneath the lush eco-friendly summertime shine. And you should hold San in your reminiscences, the a single who didn’t ignore Deok-im as he seemed up the cold snowy darkish sky.’ That portion manufactured me choke up with tears. To director-nim..um..I cannot even commence to specific my inner thoughts in terms. You were being the one particular who worked the toughest, filming and then applying your electrical power to do the enhancing. Viewing you doing the job like that made us pull by. Your affection for this task was greater than everyone else. We occurred to work with each other from spring until finally winter when performing this long venture, but no just one ever predicted that we would acquire this variety of outcome in the conclude. It is just that I want to provide my sincere gratitude for paying your time with each other with us.
