In the episode of "Song Yoon Ah at PDC," a YouTube series hosted by Song Yoon Ah, Kim Sun Young was brought to tears while talking about her passion for acting.
"I can’t get enough of acting, and I’m in love with it. But right after ‘When the Camellia Blooms,’ I starred in ‘Crash Landing on You.’ Both were middle-aged-woman roles. And after playing a middle-aged woman twice in a row, that image must’ve settled with me. I keep getting offers for similar roles. Not that I have a problem with middle-aged women’s roles. But it could be a middle-aged woman who commits filicide. Or a burglar. Just some substance. Anything. But my roles never go outside of the marketplace…and I can’t keep repeating what I’ve done before.
I’ve blamed others, and I’ve blamed myself for it quite a bit. I took it out on myself a lot because there were no limits to how harsh I can be on myself. When I was alone, I crawled way deep into a hole. So you could say I fell into a slight depression. I didn’t express it openly, of course…I don’t know how to put it. I just sincerely wanted to do acting but didn’t get the chance to. And I feel like I’m finally ready to do good acting."
