[NEWS] Kang Sora – “Dream High 2 Is Disappointing? It Was A Valuable Experience, So It Is Okay.” (Interview)

강소라가 ‘드림하이2’를 마친 소감을 전했다.

Kang Sora shared her thought after Dream High Season 2 ended.

KBS 2TV ‘드림하이2’는 말도 많고 탈도 많은 작품이었다. 시즌1이 김수현이라는 대 스타를 탄생시킨 화제작이었기에 ‘드림하이2’ 역시 많은 기대를 모았다. 그러나 안타깝게도 막상 뚜껑을 열어보니 기대 이하였다.

There’re many things and problems to be viewed about KBS’s Dream High Season 2. After successfully creating a big star of Kang So Hyun from previous Dream High Season 1, nevertheless the continuation of the drama had been becoming a hot topic which were anticipated by many people as well. Therefore, it seems the disappointment can’t be covered indeed for the result that is below everyone’s expectation for this drama.

‘드림하이2’는 시청률 고전에 작가만 서너번 바뀔 정도였다. 이에 배우들의 시름도 깊어만 갔다. 추운 날씨에 성적 부진까지 곂쳐져 제작진과 출연진 모두 힘든 상황이었다. 다행히 출연진 사이는 더할 나위없이 좋아 훈훈한 분위기 아래에서 연기할 수 있었다고.

A tough competition for Dream High 2 to get good ratings made the writer even changed the script for a few times. This matter simply deepened the anxiety of the crews. It appears to be a really hard situation for the crews to got knocked by a disappointing result in such a cold weather during the shooting process. Fortunately, they still were able to perform well under a nice atmosphere and maintained good relationship between each others.

이에 대해 강소라는 깊은 한숨을 내쉬면서도 “좋은 경험이 됐다”고 말했다.

Remind by the moment, Kang Sora sighed and said, “It made a good experience.”

“다시는 이와 같은 경험을 할 수 없을 것이다. 내가 언제 다시 이렇게 잘난 아이돌 멤버들과 연기를 하겠냐. 촬영 하는 내내 아이돌이 된 기분이었다. 아쉬운 점은 분명있지만 배운 것도 많다. 체력이 딸린다는 것을 뒤늦게 깨달아 관리의 중요성을 새삼 느꼈다. 내 연기에 대해서도 다시금 되짚어 볼 수 있는 시간이었다. ‘내가 너무 심각하게 했나? 나만 생각했나’란 고민들을 끊임없이 했다. 결과적으로 내가 너무 과했다는 결론에 도달했고 연기가 들쑥날쑥했던 것이 사실이다. 속상했지만 값진 경험이었다.”

“I probably couldn’t get such an experience again. Not everyday I could work with such great actors/actresses and members. Throughout the shooting process I truly felt like a real actress. Although, there were some unpleasant points, but I also learned a lot. There was time when I looked back at my acting. And I thought worriedly, ‘Had I done it so badly? Was it only me?’. In the end, I realized I was too exaggerating it -. I was upset but it was a valuable experience after all.”

그래도 강소라는 자기자신을 토닥였다. 강소라는 “너무 추웠는데 잘 견뎠다는 사실에 좋은 점수를 주고 싶다”고 덧붙였다. 영하의 날씨에 얇은 교복 한장만 입고 내복투혼을 벌여야 했기에 여배우로서는 최악의 환경이었다. 카메라가 돌아가면 히터도 작동시킬 수 없어 추운 날씨는 ‘드림하이2’ 최대 장애물이었다.

However, Kang Sora confidence got ‘slapped’. “It was extremely cold that time and I should cope with it well, that’s why I really want to get a good outcome,” added her. “In the below freezing point weather, I only wore a very thin uniform and I still should have my fighting spirit yet, it was the worst circumstance for being an actress. Even went the camera went off, I still couldn’t activate the heater. Cold weather was being the biggest obstacle during the shooting process of Dream High 2.

한편 강소라는 이번 작품을 위해 연기 뿐 아니라 여자 주인공으로서 다양한 부분에 심혈을 기울이는 기회를 가졌다.

Kang Sora herself thinks that for the drama this time, it wasn’t just about acting but it also how she devoted herself in many ways for being one of the leading characters.

“내가 원래 잘 붓는 스타일이어서 브라운관에 종종 예쁘지 않게 나오는 경우가 많았다. 이런 테크니컬한 것을 생각 못했다. 컨디션도 잘 조절해야 겠더라. 기분을 타다 보니 주인공으로서 동료 배우들을 다독이지 못하고 도리어 주변 인물들에게 도움을 받은 경우가 더 많다.”

“I actually look swollen sometimes so often it didn’t come out good on the screen. I couldn’t bear to think technical problems like this. Hence, I must maintain my good condition. In some moments I would experience difficulties for getting into my character and for doing the extensive long reading with other characters, but I got a lot of helps from those people who have more flexible personality.”

이와 관련해 다소 어려운 질문을 던졌다. 바로 ‘드림하이3’ 제안이 와도 다시 할 의사가 있느냐는 것.

Relating with this experience somewhat brought her to a hard question. Directly into the question if she would have any intention to accept the offer for Dream High 3 in the future.

강소라는 잠시 고민하더니 긍정적인 대답을 내놨다. “신해성의 8년 뒤라면 할 의사가 있다”고 말했다. 기린예고에서 낑낑대는 신해성이 아닌 브로드웨이에 진출해 새로운 꿈을 찾은 신해성이라면 OK라는 설명이다. 강소라는 “내게 영원히 기억될 작품이다. 연기자로서 시련도 느꼈고 큰 보람도 갖게 해준 드라마다”고 강조했다.

Kang Sora seemed to be hesitated for a while but she managed to put a positive answer of it. “I would want to do the role of 8 years older Shin Hye Seong,” she said. She explained she wouldn’t want to do the role of the same Shin Hye Seong in Kirin Art High School any longer, but she would be OK if it’s the ‘new’ Shin Hye Seong who wants to chase after Broadway and gets a new dream/ ambition. “It’ll be forever in my memory. I felt the hardships for being the main character, but it was worth to do this drama,” she declared.
