Actress Han Hyo-joo expressed her burden before the release of “Moving.”
Han Hyo-joo met the audience at the 28th Busan International Film Festival’s “Actors’ House” held at KNN Tower in Haeundae-gu, Busan on the afternoon of October 7th.
Han Hyo-joo played Lee Mi-hyun, a mother with superhuman five senses, in the Disney+ original series “Moving,” which ended on September 20th.
In this event, Han Hyo-joo shared, “I was 33-34 years old when I was first offered to act in ‘Moving’. I was not confident because I thought I was too young to play the role of a high school senior’s mother.” “I like to choose a difficult path and challenge myself rather than an easy job,” she said, explaining the reason for choosing “Moving.”
“It’s scary to be judged every time my drama comes out. I couldn’t sleep well because I was nervous before “Moving” was released,” the actress said. “Fortunately, it was released and those who watched it gave their compliments. I had only hoped not to be criticized, but I almost cried of being grateful for the compliments.”
Han Hyo-joo recalled thinking of her mother when she played Lee Mi-hyun.
“I thought I could play Lee Mi-hyun while thinking of my mother because I had never been a mother,” she said. “My mother devoted herself to her children and lived for her family, just like mothers of that era.”
Han Hyo-joo said, “I watched the last three episodes of ‘Moving’ at the movie theater, and my mom was sitting next to me. My mom is a strict and clear person, but she said “well done” after it was over. I was moved,” the actress shared, confessing her overwhelming feelings.
