“Meet Bong Joon-ho and gain courage when I give up acting.” Confession of 23-year-old Jung Ji-so
Baek So-jin (Jung So-jin) would be the character who experienced the most dramatic change in the drama “How” and the movie “How to: The Re-Cha.” Born as a daughter of a woman and living as a way to curse someone, she meets Im Jin-hee (Um Ji-won), a reporter who pursues the truth, and makes a life-long choice.
The drama ended, and Baek So-jin became one of the pillars of the so-called justice implementation, with a wider story unfolding through the film. The idea that he, who sacrificed himself by trapping evil spirits in his body, will reappear in the movie must be quite exciting among fans. Jung Ji-so, who met online on the 27th, expressed satisfaction by saying, “I solved a lot of my thirst while filming a drama.” This is because he is more active than in the drama, dealing with the bodies that are under the influence of magic and killing people.
“I was sad that I couldn’t show you everything in the drama, so I prepared more this time and read more scripts to think about it. He lost about five to six kilograms because he came out mature. It just so happens that I’m playing an idol singer in the drama Imitation, so I’m more into it than I thought. There were many dynamic movements, so I went to action school three or four times to practice. The rest of the body movements were made by consulting the choreographer at the scene.”
Baek So-jin, who appears in the middle of the movie, shows strong charisma. To this end, he reportedly referred to many scenes of actor Cho Min-soo’s good edition, who worked together in the drama as well as the basic action moves. His affection for the work was strongly felt in the part where he told the story of listening to various music to immerse himself in Baek So-jin at the scene.
“I usually like the occult genre. Especially <How> has themes and characters that weren’t there before. Many people say it’s a Korean zombie, but it seems like a new occult genre has come out. I watched several productions by writer Yeon Sang-ho (who wrote the script) for <How to: Re-cha>. I was into <Train to Busan> and <Penalty> for a while. I could get a rough idea of the atmosphere the writer wanted from this work. If season 2 of the drama comes out, something new will appear.
Baek So-jin’s character is unique. There was a time when I tried to quit acting, and as you know, I was encouraged to participate in Director Bong Joon-ho’s “Parasite,” and it was Baek So-jin who made me dream about acting again. He is a character who opened up the possibility of challenging me with a different look.”
Jung Ji-so, who had been a promising figure skater until fifth grade, suddenly changed her career path and started acting. In 2012, I mean, since I was in 6th grade, I played a child role in the drama “Queen Ki” and “Spring Day of My Life.” Then, as I went to high school, I felt a crisis for myself, and I had a short hiatus.
