Jeong Ga Eun said, “The main character who embraces debt and goes through it. It’s like my life.”
Actor Jeong Ga-eun said she has empathized with the character in the movie “Life of Nothing.”
“I thought the title of the movie was ‘It’s My Life,’ and I thought it would be ‘It’s My Life,’ but I thought it would be a day to conclude that it’s definitely not a life of no importance,” Jeong said in an interview with News 1 at Lotte Cinema at Konkuk University in Gwangjin-gu, Seoul on the afternoon of the 5th.
“Everybody sometimes thinks that my life is not a big deal, I feel a lot of relative deprivation while looking at it,” he explained. “He always goes on a ‘hocance’ and a lot of these things come up in a good car in a luxury bag, but I think my life is not a big deal, everyone does.”
The biggest reason I appeared in the movie was because I empathized with the character while reading the script. He said, “I met the director late autumn and early spring last year and thought, “Will I be able to star in the movie?” “I thought Lee Sun had a similar part to me, and I thought I could do it by empathizing with him. It was February or March, but I decided to meet the director.”
“Lee Sun-yi’s mother disappeared ahead of the CSAT in high school, and in a way, she just left the child, not just left her, but left a huge debt,” he said. “Lee Sun-yi also started a life of embracing huge debt because of her, and I’m in my 40s, but I think I can do it when I see someone in a dangerous and difficult situation.”
Director Seo Dong-hyun was also active in casting Jeong Ga-eun. She even said she would change her role to a man if Jeong Ga-eun didn’t appear. Jeong Ga-eun said, “(The director) said he had a firm desire for me to play this role, so I met him and said, “Why did you choose me, why did you choose me when you were not guaranteed to act as an actor?” and he said, “When I wrote the role of Lee Sun, I thought it was perfect. Totally Jeong Ga-eun.”
“Life of Nothing” is a time-slip fantasy melodrama about Lee Sun, who left for the past just before her death, facing her old lovers and trying to find love once again. Jeong Ga-eun played the main character Lee Sun in the drama.
Since her debut as a fashion model, Jeong has continued to stand out in various fields such as Miss Korea, entertainment, advertising, home shopping, and drama. He made efforts to lose 6 kilograms for this work.
Meanwhile, ‘Life of Nothing’ will be released on the 12th.
