All About My Wife: Im Soo Jung talks about her distress from shooting the movie


Actress Im Soo Jung recently talked about how she struggled to memorize her lines for her role in the movie All About My Wife.

At a press conference held at a CGV movie theater in Wangsimni in Seoul on May 2, the actress shared the distress she had felt.

Im appears in the movie as Jung In, a seemingly perfect woman who is extremely harsh on her husband. The baby-faced actress had to memorize painfully long lines for her extremely verbal role.

Im said, “The most difficult part was having to memorize such long lines and deliver them at a highly speedy pace. Before I chose the movie, I was quite worried, but people around me encouraged me, saying, ‘Soo Jung, you can do it. You’re good at delivering your lines, and you have good pronunciation. I bet you can do well.’ How I fell for that encouragement!”

The once embattled actress added, “Once the shooting began, I realized it was even tougher than I had thought it was going to be. It seemed as if the work was beyond my capability. I almost collapsed.”

After watching the movie, the movie star said “I see plenty of scenes that could have been better, but if I were to be asked to do it again, I don’t think I could. I’m just satisfied with what I’ve done.”

The movie is about a married couple—Doo Hyun and his wife Jung In, who is beautiful yet harsh only on her husband. Enduring years of Jung-in’s bad temper, Doo Hyun desperately seeks ways to divorce her. The timid husband is too afraid to bring up the topic of separation to his ill-tempered wife. Instead, he sets a divorce scheme: he hires a womanizer (played by Ryu Seung Ryong) to seduce his wife, hoping she will ask for a divorce once she falls in love with him.
