Sunmi, the character that was played by Kim Go Eun in movie ‘Mountain Byun’ is a normal woman unlike any of the other characters. She commented, “I was so worried about my acting. I thought so hard on how to make the Character Sunmi natural such as how does the Ordinary Sunmi would act in her daily routinely? So I think the weight I recently gained at least helped me visually” she said.

Kim Go Eun tried to live up the character of Ordinary but three dimensional Sunmi by gaining her weight up to 8 kilograms. Even though the process of her effort is quiet unseen, it is expected that the viewers would definitely recognize the effort and accept her character with a satisfied heart. “When I play some character, I often think hard on how to live up this character. Even though the viewers might not know it but I guess it’s enough if the viewers can feel comfortable with the character and cheer up on her” she said.
