'It's Night' Choi Ye-bin "I hoped it wouldn't interfere with my previous work's image"
‘It’s night’ Choi Ye-bin said her final greeting full of regret.

In the U+ Mobile TV original 'It's Night', which put an end to the mafia game by releasing the last episode on the 21st, he played the role of 'Oh Jeong-won', the top student in the school of the opposite sex, assimilating the character from the outside to the inside, and giving a twist until the end. Actress Choi Ye-bin, who showed off her powerful performance, revealed a Q&A that will ease the disappointment of the show's ending.Below is a Q&A with Choi Yebin.Q. The final story of ‘It’s Night’, which was filmed hotly last summer, was released yesterday. How do you feel after completing the work?
A. It's so quick and disappointing that the very precious and meaningful work 'It's Night', which I filmed in Gwangju for three months, has already come to an end. It was a work of great significance because I was able to meet good people and work together on good work, so I thought it would be even better if it did well. Fortunately, it seems like our passion and effort reached the viewers, so we were able to end the show on a happier note.

Q. Is there anything you paid particular attention to when playing the role of ‘Oh Jeong-won’ in this work?
A. I hoped that the image shown in the previous work would not interfere with showing the new character named Jeong-won. And this time, I wanted to be seen solely as Oh Jeong-won, so I paid special attention to building the character. I changed my appearance, starting with my hairstyle, and tried to change the way I speak and act while acting.

Q. What percentage do you think is in sync with the character ‘Oh Jeong-won’?
A. Jeongwon is a friend whose way of speaking, attitude towards friends, and daily thoughts and actions are completely opposite to mine. However, if there is one similarity, I tend to become very rational when a crisis situation arises, and I think that one aspect is similar and accounts for about 15%.

Q. It was a scene where there were many actors of your age. How was your chemistry with the actors you acted with?
A. All of my classmates got along really well, so even before filming, we see each other often in private and get along well. I think there was good synergy as we freely shared our opinions and worked together with each other while filming. It was a scene where I had a lot to see and learn as an actor because they all had different charms and strengths. And the reason we were able to enjoy it comfortably can be attributed to the great role played by actor Hong Seong-pyo (playing the role of Nam Yeon-woo), who was the eldest on set. I would like to express my special gratitude to Seongpyo oppa, who has a good sense of humor, good personality, and accepts his younger siblings well. I think it was thanks to him that the atmosphere on set was created well.

Q. Because of the setting of the Mafia game, where you have to vote for your friends to survive, there must have been a lot of difficult times physically and mentally. What was the most difficult part and memorable scene while filming?
A. Because of Jeongwon's character set-up, he didn't feel much pain, guilt, or pity until the mid-to-late half, so I think he fought more with his brains than with his emotions, but there was a moment toward the end where he was psychologically driven. In the last episode, during the conversation with Yoon-seo (Lee Jae-in), this scene is memorable because it is a moment where we learn the human and emotional aspects that were missing from Jeong-won. Also, in the previous situations leading up to this scene, it was difficult to consider choices about Jeongwon's reactions so as not to stand out too much when he was with other characters.

Q. What does a friend named Yoon-seo mean to Jeong-won?
A. Yoon-seo is the only friend that Jeong-won shares his feelings with, and is a person who influences Jeong-won’s growth. As I was acting, the feeling that “Yoon-seo should not die” grew bigger and bigger, and eventually it seemed to solidify into the thought, “I have to protect her.” In this way, he is a friend who is precious enough to give a 'variable' to the character named Jeong-won, and with whom he shares a friendship that is stronger than expected.

Q. After seeing the work, it seems to leave a big impact in my heart. What message do you think this work gives to people?
A. Trapped in a training center and forced into a game, each person shows their will to live by trusting and betraying friends, turning friends and then enemies with just the will to live, but what happens when it becomes a matter for me and my precious person? Isn't this cruel struggle to live again and again so painful and futile? I think the message this work wants to give is that Jeongwon realizes and grows through friendship in a mafia game that is similar to this world.

Q. A word to the viewers who came along with ‘It’s Night’ until the end.
A. I didn't know what the outcome would be while filming, but I devoted three months to this work with vague expectations, and fortunately, I feel good that many people enjoyed our passion and effort. All the staff and actors worked together with one mind and did their best to film in a harmonious and enjoyable way, so my hope that it would go well did not go in vain thanks to the people who watched it. To the viewers who were interested in ‘It’s Night’, thank you for reasoning together and immersing yourself until the end.
