Im Su-jung (also known as Lim Soo-jung) made her break in a sitcom called School IV back in 2001. Back then, she was a really shy girl. After working with several notable directors and actors in the entertainment industry, she has admitted that she is no longer that shy girl.
Through the years, she has changed a lot. Im takes great pride in her acting and throws her all into her characters. Now, she is a bit like the bouncy Si-eun in Lump of Sugar, a bit odd like Yeong-gun in I’m a Cyborg, but that’s OK, and part of her is really closed-up and fragile like the character she plays in A Tale of Two Sisters. She feels like she takes with her a bit of each of the characters she’s played and don’t want to throw away even one.
Im says “So far, I’ve been mostly playing unrealistic characters. They were either physically or mentally sick. So in the future, I hope I get to play characters that are more down-to-earth. I’m also drawn to strong women characters.” Only 27, this baby faced actress has accomplished a lot in her career.
“If I can have one wish before I turn 40, that is to perform so well that everyone gives me two thumbs up.”
