As the scheduler ordered, Ji-hyeon has to earn 3 tears in 49 days in the body of Lee Kyeong. On the episode on the 13th, she meets a friend and interviews her seeing tears, but soon realizes that tear wasn't for her and falls into disappointment once again.
Then on the 14th, she succeeds in getting a tear in the body of Lee Kyeong in ten episodes. It feels more valuable as it has been more than half the time she promised with the scheduler.
The productions requested, "Ji-hyeon has to get 3 tears and finally has one. The owner of the next tear will be revealed dramatically so please look forward to it".
Ex Pop Star Nam Gyoo-ri Committed To Acting Career
"I had to work so hard to change careers from singer to actress", she says. "But I can't think of any other occupation. From early childhood I was firmly set on becoming either a singer or an actress. It's not that I chose to be an actress. I'd say I had no other choice. I am where I am now because I was constantly searching for something I can do well and enjoy doing".
At one point after her 2006 singing debut, Nam was among the biggest pop stars in Korea with girl group SeeYa. "I sometimes miss being a singer because you can always communicate with fans when you're on stage singing", she says. "But I hope I can find a new kind of happiness and achievement in acting".
Her ambition is to be a real actress rather than a TV celebrity. "I've just started discovering the real taste of acting, and I don't think I've got to any depth in expressing emotions. When I confront these difficulties, I wonder if I'm actually talented. I hope that it's my destiny, because it's my only job at the moment".Jeong II-woo Sings "49 Days" OST "The Scarecrow"
