Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Lee Sung-kyung plays an agent whose job is to defuse scandals. Studio Dragon In preparation for her role as the competent yet harried PR representative for a top entertainment agency, actress Lee Sung-kyung spent extra time with the people working at her own agency. “I was able to spend a lot of time with many staff members working at my agency,” said Lee. “Even when we weren’t working together, we were able to personally get to know each other and share our difficulties. Through my closest friends in the agency, I was able to grasp a little bit about their worries and troubles as a staff and see through their eyes. I am so happy to have represented their wonderful jobs and hearts through the role of Han-byeol.” Lee plays Oh Han-byeol in the comedy Sh**ting Stars. The Korean adaptation of the French hit show Call My Agent reveals just how hard agency staff members work for their clients and the kinds of unusual problems they encounter. Quickly correcting unfounded rumors and clearing up careless dating scandals are just a part of the everyday work load. An agency’s star clients seem perfect to the rest of the world, but being human, occasionally stray. It’s the agency’s job to support their actors and protect their image. According to Lee, the show has a lot to say about the reality of the industry. “Detailed stories about the entertainment industry, exciting and funny episodes within it, charming characters, the pain and suffering that people outside of the industry couldn’t understand, and meaningful messages that are worth contemplating are all the different aspects that I love about this show,” said Lee. “This show basically gives off ‘I wasn’t sure what you would like, so I made everything!’ vibes. I hope you all enjoy it.” Lee began her entertainment career as a model and made her TV acting debut with a supporting role in the 2014 drama It’s Okay, That’s Love . She is best known for her roles in the TV dramas Cheese in the Trap, Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo, About Time and Dr. Romantic 2, as well as the film Miss & Mrs. Cop. Lee Sung-kyung is known for her roles in ‘Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo’ and ‘Dr. Romantic.’ Studio Dragon MORE FOR YOU ‘Dune’ Tops Foreign Box Office With Promising $77M Cume ‘Shang-Chi’ Box Office: Marvel Movie Tops $360M Worldwide 4 Series Coming To Netflix In October That Are Worth The Binge She co-stars in Sh**ting Stars with actor Kim Young-dae. He plays the difficult actor Gong Tae-sung, who Han-byeol must work with and also secretly likes. He also likes her, but can’t admit it, so instead of courting the characters are constantly bickering. It’s not the first leading role for Lee, but it was for her male co-star. To support Kim, she shared some of the inevitable ups and downs of playing a leading role. “Towards the end, Kim Young-dae was very disappointed that the show was reaching the end and had a difficult time parting with his character,” said Lee. “I remember I also felt the same way about my first leading role. Not only myself, but all of the other cast members and directors supported him through it in order to end on a good note and cherish this beautiful experience until the very last moment.” Lee is a gifted comedienne, whether she plays an agent, a surgeon or a weightlifter. Part of what makes her such a likable and funny character in Sh**ting Stars is the juxtaposition of her wide-eyed expression and her character’s spirited approach to solving problems. “I love making people around me laugh, so I think that comical side of me naturally reflects on my acting as well,” said Lee. “I absolutely enjoy acting comedy scenes and sometimes I laugh by myself while reenacting it in my head. There are a lot of images I have already shown through other works, so I am always thinking ‘whatever I do, I will always have my same old voice and expressions—how can I change that?’ But this time in Shooting Stars , I did it for the people who support and love the humorous side of Lee Sung-kyung.” Lee has been acting for almost a decade and the process continues to give her great joy. “There is something so euphoric about being able to completely immerse myself into a character and her world, that I can’t exactly put into words,” she said. “Although the process of being able to do so is extremely difficult, there is nothing else in this world other than acting that is more challenging and inspiring to me.” Follow me on Twitter or LinkedIn .
