Recently, Yuri who made her drama debut through SBS’s ‘Fashion King’ has been receiving good responses for her acting skills. Although Yuri had been featured in the past in KBS sitcom ‘Unstoppable Marriage’ and ‘Flower Boys’ Series of Terror Events’, this is her first time holding one of the main roles in a drama. Despite not having a lot of acting experience, Yuri had proven that she could handle various scenes well. From the kissing scene with Lee JeHoon to emotional scenes that require great concentration and focus, she nailed them all with sheer perfection.
At the shooting set of ‘Fashion King’ recently, Sports Chosun met up with the director of ‘Fashion King’, Lee MyungWoo PD, who praised Yuri’s acting skill by saying, “Yuri has shown great improvement in her acting.”
He elaborated, “At first, I had to give a lot of acting pointers and guidance to Yuri. On the set, there were also times when corrections were made. However, her acting skills got better as the days passed. When I pointed out the areas where she was lacking, she would take note of them and then reflected them accordingly in her acting. Yuri, above all, is rich with emotions. She has the attitude that tells you that she is ever-prepared. She will be successful as an actress.”
‘Fashion King’ is a stepping stone for Yuri in the acting world. SM Entertainment’s systematic training system definitely has a huge effect on her special acting skills. Artists from SM Entertainment were also given acting lessons since their trainee days and their training sessions were rigorous. Like other artists, Yuri too had undergone this strict training process as well.
A representative of SM Entertainment stated, “The desire and passion shown by Yuri who wants to develop herself as an actress is amazing. On the shooting set, Yuri listened carefully as not to miss every single word told by the director and senior actors and she has been working really hard to develop herself.”
Meanwhile, on ‘Fashion King’, starting from episode 7 which will be aired on April 9th, the main characters will be facing a new conflict which is expected to be the new turning point to the drama.
