Some say there is a lack of actresses, while others say there are few roles to play. This is a paradox of the Korean movie industry around actresses.

Actress Kim Hye-soo is making her own specialty by creating roles, which only she can take. Kim Tae-gon, the director of “Goodbye Single,” which is released next Wednesday, said, “It would have been impossible unless she had taken the role.”

The lead role of the movie is an actress, who had been a top celebrity since she was a teenager, and still lives a glamourous life although her prime time is slightly over. It is a comedy about the lead role who suddenly declares that she wants her real partner and a child after being dumped by her boyfriend younger than her.

Kim said in an interview, “I tried to exclude things that make look like Kim Hye-soo.” However, the lead role in the movie who looks like an immature girl and then reveals loneliness, and later grows up and become confident to protect someone else seems to be a summary of her roles over the past 30 years.
