She somehow feels there is still a lot lacking in her acting. She is not happy with herself yet regarding acting. She was actually supposed to start filming a big film this month. The director had already contacted her for it. He really wanted her to do this film called “Deception of Men”. But she declined the offer because, as said earlier, she was not satisfied yet about her acting abilities. She feels there is a lot to improve when it comes to making her eyes speak on their own and in estimating the camera. Therefore, she has put a hold on her acting. But if she was given the choice, what kind of characters would she like to play? She is interested in playing tough characters in action movies, cold and calculating characters, as well as serious roles in drama films.

And how is she preparing herself to be able to act? She replies that she is not actually doing any real acting training. Since she was a child, she did have a habit of looking into a mirror and practicing her expressions. Her friends in the industry that she considers to be brothers and sisters also take her under their wings and teach her aspects of acting like camera estimation. She currently reads a lot of books. She is also watching a lot of foreign drama films. When she reads, she feels herself empathizing and drifting along the feelings that the characters are going through. She has always had a hobby of reading. In earlier times when she took modeling and acting training, she had to practice watching a candle. Her training instructor used to tell her that focusing on seeing a single burning candle is good practice for photo models. But for people whose focus was acting, they had to light three candles in separate places. After watching each for about five minutes, they had to immediately shift their stare to the next candle. The instructor said this would help them emote rapidly changing expressions when they act.

Since then, she has started training her eyes. She would watch again movie scenes she had already shot. For the scenes that she felt were lacking, she would reshoot them. When she is on her own, she tends to practice the expressions she has seen from actresses in movies. When she meets her close friends in the acting industry, she gets to practice more. However, as said earlier, there is no systematic training. She is just starting to learn. And there is still a lot lacking in herself, she feels. She is learning to feel in the place of a character she may have to play. Before, she didn’t know how to feel in a character’s position. Now, she feels she has especially gotten a lot better at depicting love. Maybe it is because she has experienced heartbreak already. In the place of her co-star, she just imagines her lover. That’s the approach she has taken in acting.
