A shocking confession from famous Hallyu actresses, “I learned a lot from actors who smoke”

Actresses Goo Hye Sun and Choi Kang Hee discusses the topic of smoking while acting 

On the afternoon of October 6th, Goo Hye Sun attended a screening of “Director Goo Hye Sun’s Short Stories” at Lotte Cinema Daeyeong branch in Jung-gu, Busan.

On this day, Goo Hye Sun said, “Last year, I learned to smoke while filming the movie ‘Dark Yellow’, where I worked with Ahn Seo Hyun. I learned it to shoot scenes in the movie.”

“Whether it was an actress or a male actor, it was acting, but I thought, ‘Let me try it myself’. I wanted to try that particular scene, so I practiced [smoking] for about 6 months. I learned a lot from actors who smoke”, the actress explained.

This isn’t the first time Korean actresses have mentioned cigarettes.

In particular, on September 29th, actress Choi Kang Hee appeared on the YouTube channel “Renew CBS” (literal translation) and had time to watch a video of herself from 2016.

In this past video, Choi Kang Hee drew attention by talking about quitting smoking, which is somewhat difficult for an actress to bring up. “It was difficult to quit smoking,” she said, adding, “I started thinking, ‘I think I’m smoking this for nothing’, and stopped because I was living in faith.”


Choi Kang Hee, who re-watched the past video after about 6 years, commented, “I thought I had changed a lot. At the time, I thought I would quit easily, but I kept falling back into the same habit.”
