Mom Caught Masturbating Scene “Should I order chicken?” Jeon Hye-jin of ‘Namnam’ “Mom is a woman too”

“My mom also liked the part where she said ‘woman’. I was worried about how to express it, but if it was ‘Eunmi’ (even if her daughter caught her masturbating scene), she would not panic and would say ‘you’re late’ ‘what about rice?’ I thought he would say, ‘Should I order chicken?’”

Actress Jeon Hye-jin, whom we met at a cafe in Yeoksam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul on the 22nd, described her mother, ‘Eun-mi’ in her ENA drama <Namnam>, like this.

Her mother, caught masturbating alone, is thrilled at the thought of ordering her chicken, thinking she doesn’t care. Rather, her daughter is shocked. It was a scene that caught the attention of viewers from the beginning of <Southern>. Eun-mi grew up being abused by her father. She is a single mother who gave birth to a child when she was in high school and raised her by herself. She does not succumb to the gaze of society and proudly earns her own share of food, but does not hide her desire as a human being before being a mother. Even when she is reunited with her first love in the play, that is, her daughter’s ‘dad’, she only wants a lover who will love her rather than ‘her husband’ or ‘child’s father’.

Jeon Hye-jin said, “There can’t be only people like me who like unfamiliar characters, and I thought it would be a sitcom, but the emotional lines and various expressions were well harmonized.” He said, “It was nice to be able to talk about a character to the extent that I couldn’t think of ‘She’s a normal mother’.”

<Namnam> was a drama that deviated from the typical family narrative. It refers to the appropriate distance between parents and children. A sudden appearance of a grandfather even performed genetic testing on her granddaughter. Eun-mi, guessing that her daughter must have been hurt, reproaches her daughter for not telling her. “Why do you think I’m going to get hurt?” she replies. Family, she says, is not the only blood family. Her high school classmate Mi-jeong (Kim Hye-eun), who reached out to Eun-mi, who was being beaten by her father, and asked her to go home, and his mother were true family. In the final episode of her drama, Mi-jeong’s mother puts Eun-mi and Jin-hee on her family register and even leaves her will to pass on her property. says Eunmi, who served as the resident at her funeral home. She said, “It was my mother. determined by me No matter what anyone says, my mother.”

Jeon Hye-jin said, “There are times when parents think, ‘I want only you to be comfortable,’ but then there are many cases where it becomes difficult for each other. Just like the title ‘Nam-Nam’, it would be nice to admit that we are different personalities. I am often like that with my children, but these days I think a lot about ‘let’s separate’ and ‘different’,” she said.

As the mother-daughter relationship is the main story, the ‘chemistry’ between the two actors was important. Jeon Hye-jin was cast before Choi Soo-young. She said, “She was very curious about who her daughter would be, and she was very lucky that she was Sooyoung. She heard that she was a ‘good friend’ through her halfway acquaintance, and Suyeong expressed her liking first.” There were a lot of conversations between mother and daughter, so there were many scenes taken while sitting on the sofa. two on TVThey sat side by side, drinking beer, and bickering the whole time. Jeon Hye-jin said, “I joke on the couch, and I don’t know if this is a line or not, but even though it was cut, the two of us played like that.” I met a good friend this time,” she laughed.

In the meantime, Jeon Hye-jin has mainly played charismatic and intelligent characters. She has only been charged with police five times. She was different from her rather comical acting like <Namnam>. So when Jeon Hye-jin first met ‘Eun-mi’, she said, “First of all, it was nice that she wasn’t a cop토토사이트.” He said, “I am grateful to the director and writer for breaking the mold,” and “I like comedies, and I think it would be nice to have a character who can be released more than a person who ‘caught the angle’.”

Jeon Hye-jin has said that since she stood on the stage a long time ago, even after giving birth to a child and filming, “there is no room for actresses.” Even when he went to the Cannes International Film Festival with the movie <The Merciless>, he said, “There are not many characters that actresses can stand on. She is thirsty for screenplays,” she said. Would it be different now that she met Eun-mi, who reveals her mother’s desire without hesitation?

She said, “I feel like she has changed a lot. In the past, male directors said, ‘I don’t know women very well’ when writing and directing, but now that I see my son, I don’t really know either. Now that there are a lot of female writers, I think it’s possible to completely change and create a variety of characters. But I still think it’s not enough. A drama like <Namnam> will become a story only when it does better and gets a response.”
