Korean actress Kim Yun-jin has said it took her a while to decide if she wanted to play another mother role.
Kim made the remark on Thursday during a press conference for new thriller flick "Heartbeat" as she explained to reporters on how she made the decision to play the role Yeon-hee.
"Even though the storyline and appearance of the movie maybe similar to the mother roles that I played in 'Seven Days' and 'Harmony,' Yeon-hee was different in that she is fragile, feminine and very complex."
She further said, "To be honest, I needed more time to make my decision because I was hesitant since it was a maternal role but I didn't want to lose out on this great opportunity."
The suspense thriller will open in local theaters on January 6.
