Actress Kim Tae-ri (32 years old) said, “I’ve become 150 times more confident since ‘Twenty-Five Twenty-One’.”
Kim Tae-ri, who played Lee Ahn, a woman who shoots thunder, in the first part of the SF fantasy action film “Alienoid” (directed by Choi Dong-hoon, produced by Caper Film), expressed her affection for the series “Alienoid” through a video interview with Sports Chosun on the morning of July 18th.
Kim Tae-ri talked about steadily participating in box office hits since debut and emerging as a “trending actress”, “In fact, I have no burden on making hits. I know I’ll fall down one day. I’m taking care of my mind so that I don’t fall too badly when I fall down. Whenever I succeed at something, I think, ‘How can I be so lucky?’ It seems that my works’ success is luck with the energy of the universe. I think someday it might not work out. As an actress, I don’t feel much pressure, but my management agency has a lot of worries. I tend to ponder about the future path for a long time, and I think I was able to seize chances of luck when they came.”
She added, “It seems that I obtained ‘Alienoid’ not just due to the success of ‘Twenty-Five Twenty-One’. In the past, I viewed the weight of my name and my social position very low compared to how people judged me. Director Choi Dong-hoon’s suggestion to appear in ‘Alienoid’ made me feel ‘so amazing’. Now I view them objectively. I don’t think there’s any need for unnecessary humility. After ‘Twenty-Five Twenty-One’, I don’t have to doubt whether it’s real or fake. In the process of meeting people, I felt the moment that I was looking at myself accurately. I’ve become 150 times more confident than before. In the past, sometimes I tried to pretend to be confident. I’m trying to be really confident right now. I’m enjoying this moment enthusiastically.”
“Alienoid” depicts an extraordinary story that unfolds as the gates of time open between late Goryeo and the present in 2022, when aliens appear. Ryu Jun-yeol, Kim Woo-bin, Kim Tae-ri, So Ji-sub, Yum Jung-ah, Jo Woo-jin, Kim Eui-sung, Honey Lee, Shin Jung-geun and Lee Si-hoon appeared. It was directed by director Choi Dong-hoon of “Tazza: The High Rollers”, “Jeon Woo-chi: The Taoist Wizard”, “The Thieves” and “Assassination”. It will be released on July 20th.
