[Eng Trans] Seo Hyun Jin’s Grazia October 2017 issue Interview – Between calmness and passion (Part 2)

Grazia3

Q15. So between a hot burning love and a love that warms up steadily, what  kind of love temperature do you want to have? 

A15. Uhm, rather than caring about the temperature of love, I want to date someone who’s like a best friend. Someone who knows how to be loyal to the other person, is there…such kind of person?

Q16. Where could he be. That kind of person (laughs)?

A16. Are they all taken?

Q17. Someday he will show up. People say that there is a right time for everyone.

A17. Just like love that needs a right time. The writer told me “After you do this drama, you might want to love someone”. But until now, it’s good to be single though. I don’t want to break this rhythm.

Q18. Looks like it is a difficult time to fall in love blindly. Surely the kind of love you’re dreaming of is different when you are in your 30’s and when you are in your 20’s.

A18. True. I’m checking myself if I am ready to love someone. I’m afraid of getting hurt again, too.

Q19. The way you look at people / judge a character must be different now too.

A19. Definitely different. In my 20s I like people with individual personality. The kind of person who has his own philosophy and firmly say his piece. Now I’m attracted to a considerate and generous person. I like someone whom I can feel comfortable with when we are together.

Q20. When it comes to dating, how has your style change?

A20. I’m not sure. It‘s been so long since I was in a relationship, so I don’t know how I look like (while dating).

Q21. Seriously, I hope something happens after this drama ends. 

A21. My parents and everyone else are hoping that I will date (laughs)!

Q22. If we look at your filmography up until now, I think you are a clever actor who pick your works well. 

A22. Actually 《Temperature of Love》 is the only one I chose. I am not an actor who has a wide spectrum of choices. So I have always been working on, with the thought that the one in front of me right now is my destiny. Eventually the works that I’ve done became my experiences.

Q23. So why were you attracted to Temperature of Love

A23. I wanted to do a drama that deals with emotions. To fall in love with someone, and that love didn’t work out, then to reunite again – the kind of drama where emotions are involved in various kind of situations. The actor’s interpretation on how to do it would make the real difference for it. There is no right or wrong answer to that. I feel burdened too…. I’ve been wandering in this field (for a while) but this is the first time I’m doing something like this. There are many ambiguous words that made it possible to be done this way or that way, so I’m going to find out the best way to do it.

Q24. Do you have any particular work that you wish to do in the future? 

A24. Recently I’ve started doing PT.(Plyometric Training) I want to build muscles on my body since I wish to do an action project. I wish to do a good action project at least once.

Q25. What is the ultimate thing you wish to achieve working as an actor? 

A25. I don’t have such a wish.

Q26. Don’t you have any expectation in doing your work? 

A26. Yes. I just wish for the (filming) sites to be continuously enjoyable. At first, the adults who tried to make up stories that do not exist at all used to look cool, but now I really like the energy from the (filming) sites where the experts gathered together and work professionally. People who work well and have good personalities are so fun. It is so fun working with such people at the sites. So I won’t avoid such people and would want to do well, and it feels good to make interesting and touching works together with them.. And if such relationships could extend even after the work ends where we can still meet up again, there’s nothing more that I could wish for.

[Eng Trans] Seo Hyun Jin’s Grazia October 2017 issue Interview – Between calmness and passion (Part 1)

Grazia1

Meeting and parting, and when they eventually reunite, the woman’s face deepen. Actor Seo Hyun Jin’s moments of searching for the <<Temperature of Love>>

Q1. You’re much more beautiful in real life.

A1. As you can see, I’m wearing a full make-up. Of course I should be looking pretty (laughs).

Q2. You are too humble. Since today’s photo shoot almost encompass all of the beauty trend for the F/W season, what make-up/style do you like most?

A2.I like make-ups that make my face looks healthy/rosy, so I think it is the prettiest when the blusher applied can enhance/ bring out the glossy skin appearance.

Q3. Your skin looks great from up-close. As you are also a spokes-model for Estee Lauder, which part of your skin  are you most confident with if you’re to choose one?

A3. Honestly, I used to feel confident about my skin in the past, however as I am getting older, it’s not same as before.. even so, if I have to choose one, I think it’ll be the skin texture?

Q4. Please tell us the secret in maintaining beautiful skin.

A4. I have been putting on moisturizing cream every day since my early 20’s. There is always a lip-balm and moisturizing cream in my make-up pouch. And during the winter, I keep the heater away from me as far as I can.

 Q5. Nowadays the filming of Temperature of Loveis in full swing. When you’re shooting a drama, you’ll not get enough time to sleep so how do you keep your skin condition healthy? 

A5. As the filming progresses, my skin feels more tired. Usually I would go to the dermatology clinic for treatments during the early stages of filming when the schedule is not so tight. But this time, there wasn’t  sufficient time for me to do so. If I have an all-night filming, I would remove the make-up once in the middle and then put on the make-up again.

Q6. You have to act and manage (your skin), I guess it must be really exhausting. 

A6. I’m trying, and I think of it as a ‘minimum courtesy’ (laughs).

Q7. Normally, do you enjoy make-ups? 

A7. Of course!

Q8. For make up, which would you put more emphasis on, the eyes or the lips?

A8. In winter, I’ll put on red lipstick, and I’ll use mascara to enhance my lashes during summer.

Q9. ‘Seo Hyun Jin’s make-up’ always become a trend in every work of yours. We are curious what kind of beauty topic it will be for this time, any hints?

A9. I asked the director who is in charge of make-up and she said the highlight will be on the blusher.

Q10. There’s hot interest towards Temperature of Loveeven before it started airing.

A10. The script is so good.It delicately illustrates the emotions surrounding love as it changes.  It’ll be a work that reminds you of missed relationships as well timings in life.

Q11. This is your second encounter with your partner actor Yang Se Jong. Despite being a rookie, he is an actor who acts very well, so we’re looking forward to the chemistry between both of you. 

A11. It feels comfortable for the fact that we know each of our style’s well. Also, I felt relieved as he is a friend who is good in acting. I’m just worried since I’m much more senior than him, he’ll be too polite towards me. Even though he can comfortably call me ‘noona’ but he keeps on calling me ‘sunbae-nim’ until now.

Q12. The male and female leads have to paint a love story but he keeps going on like that? 

A12. That’s what I’m saying! He keeps on calling me sunbae-nim so I don’t know what to do. I wish he could comfortably call me ‘noona’ now… but I think he’ll call me sunbae-nim even up until the wrap-up party (laughs).

Q13. What is the difference between <<Temperature of Love>> Lee Hyun Soo and <<Another oh Hae Young>> Oh Hae Young?

A13. She is not a woman who is as courageous as Oh Hae Young. She is a much more realistic person. She is a woman who thinks of love rationally, that love is a choice one makes based on one’s own will and not something that one would (instinctively) fall for. She thought that it should be in moderation, she is scared of it too… and when love comes, she didn’t want to rush it, and ended up regretting it later.

Q14. Which of the two characters’ styles is  closer to you in real life? 

A14. I’m closer to Lee Hyun Soo’s style. The older I get, the more frightened I feel. Like Hyun Soo, I’m sparing myself / playing it safe.
