'Iris' Turning Point in Kim Tae-hee's Acting Career

"I want to gain recognition for my acting skills. I hope this production will serve as a turning point in my life," said actress Kim Tae-hee, who plays a profiler of an intelligence organization in the TV drama "Iris." Kim has eight years of acting experience and she is more passionate than ever about her job.

"I have never studied acting in a systematic way. I was totally unprepared. It's a lot of pressure for me because viewers seem to like this drama," said Kim.

KIm took a break from her acting career last year to take acting classes. "Iris" was an opportunity for her to learn a great deal about acting.

Actor Lee Byung-hun, who plays opposite Kim in the drama, lauded the actress for her pure-hearted personality and willingness to learn despite her acting experience.

Kim said she felt nauseous when she was filming the first scene of "Iris" after a long hiatus, but that she felt comfortable thanks to the support of the production crew. "I ate more to gather strength for action scenes and I did my best, but Kim So-yeon looked more impressive to me onscreen. I will continue to take action classes because we still have several action scenes left," said Kim.

Eugene Finds Life Abroad Reflected in New Drama

, formerly of K-pop girl group SES, says her starring role in new MBC TV weekend drama "Creating Destiny" is her comeback on TV after a year's absence. In a recent interview during the photo shoot for the poster, Eugene said the new drama is "novel and fun and can be enjoyed by people of all ages."

Eugene plays a soon-to-be lawyer who moved to Australia when young. "She and I are similar in that we both left Korea at an early age," she said. "Her situation, background and personality are all similar to mine. That's probably why I didn't think it was too difficult when I read the script. I think my experience of spending my teen years in Guam will help me immensely with the role."

She has many lines in English. "Even though I spent my youth abroad, English is still difficult. I think I need to practice a lot. I felt as if I was reading off a book, not acting, when I was practicing the lines. I'm going to have to read the script over and over and practice it a lot. I try to regain the feel of English by speaking in English with friends," she said. Eugene added the role resembles her most out of all the characters she has played so far.

After finishing the film "Yoga," Eugene has been taking a break. Since she debuted as a member of SES in 1997 until the dissolution of the group in 2002, she was the pixie of the K-pop scene. Since then, she successfully moved from singing to acting. The first episode of "Creating Destiny" will be aired on Oct. 10.
