Here’s how rookie actress Roh Yoon Seo is doing.
Variety introduces “20th Century Girl” as a work that connects “Architecture 101”, a representative Korean movie about first love, and tvN’s youth drama “Twenty Five, Twenty One”.
Unlike other Netflix Korea original films that have been released so far, which have not only achieved good results on the global charts, but also received criticism, “20th Century Girl” is gaining positive reviews all around.
The power of universal first love emotions and retro sensibility conveyed through “20th Century Girl” has stimulated memories and emotions of not only domestic but also international viewers.
The cast, including young actors representing the MZ generation, such as Kim Yoo Jung, Byun Woo Seok, Park Jeong Woo, and Roh Yoon Seo, feel refreshing to viewers born in the 1990s and 2000s, further enhancing the level of immersion.
Roh Yoon Seo was an art student majoring in Western painting. While attending the university, she worked as a cosmetic brand advertisement and online shopping mall model before joining MAA, a entertainment company.
Roh Yoon Seo said, “I was afraid to start acting, but I gained courage with the mindset that it would not be too late to learn and give up. For the first time in my life, I felt that I had found something more interesting and passionate than art.”
After passing the audition for “Our Blues”, Roh Yoon Seo recalled, “I was stunned to think about where and who I am going to work with now, and I was so dazed that I couldn’t feel it even after the drama was released.”
Roh Yoon Seo, while filming “20th Century Girl”, said, “There were times when I had a lot of heartache on set for fear of causing trouble to people around me, but thanks to my colleagues, things went smoothly. The more pressure I felt, the more unnatural my acting became, so I had no choice but to keep going,” revealing how she overcame the burden.
Roh Yoon Seo is currently studying at the same time as working to prepare for her graduation exhibition. She is returning to college to finish her last semester while preparing for her next film after wrapping up on “20th Century Girl”.
