  • Irreplaceable character

    There are actors who remain long in the memory despite only appearing in a few scenes. These are the scene stealers. Among the large pool of actors in film, these have reached a certain distinction. Here is a list of ten big scene stealers in the Korean film industry.
    Some actors seem to never fit ordinary characters. KOH Sui-hee is a good example. When she appeared as the ‘Witch’ in Sympathy for Lady Vengeance and left a strong impression, it was obvious that she was the one and only person who could play the role and express the character. Her characters are consumed with desire, and end up collapsing and ignoring the rules of the world. She coercively  onflicts with others and even uses violence. The unique charisma of KOH Sui-hee has nothing to do with scenarios or the skill of directors, but is something that she creates on her own. Meanwhile, she is sometimes a loner wandering around or a warm person with considerate eyes embracing others. KOH is a very unique actress who can express extreme characters with deep feelings.
