Ku Hye-sun is a busy actress. “Fragments of Sweet Memories,” which she was in charge of directing the overall movie and music, yet she does not neglect her school works. This year, she was at the top of her class in college. From playing the leading female character in Taiwanese film “Absolute Boyfriend” to writing novels and painting drawings, it is a wonder where this tireless mutiplayer’s energy comes from. 

“I’m not that diligent. Like I always say, when you’re not dating anyone, you can use time quite efficiently [laugh]. And a positive attitude is a plus. When you don’t take your thoughts into actions, the idea just disappears. I’m working with a positive mind that when sharing my idea with other people, that diversifies the content and helps me to come up with more ideal plans.” 

She had a slew of events and programs to attend during the eighth Jecheon International Music and Film Festival [JIMFF], including the Open Talk session. But Ku was glittering her eyes, filled with a positive energy, saying that she wants to go around as much as she can to eat and travel. But she added that her biggest anticipation is at the JIMFF camp site.
