Suey Kwok Wants to Play More Mature Characters
Not too long ago, Suey Kwok (郭思) accepted an interview with MenClub and delved into the changes that have occurred within the past three years. Although her appearance remains largely the same, Suey has matured a lot. For starters, the 25-year-old starlet, who started off as a model, has discovered a newfound passion for acting.
At the end of last year, the budding actress accomplished a major milestone by landing the role of a student in the TVB drama, The Man Who Kills Troubles <解決師>. “Acting is really amazing,” the budding actress gushed. “Maybe it’s because my character is a very happy student, but acting is a very happy thing.”
In fact, acting has replaced singing as her number one priority. Three years ago, Suey was learning singing and dancing in hopes of becoming a singer. Although she has not become a singer yet, she gained more recognition through her participation in Cooking Beauties <美女廚房> and The Man Who Kills Troubles.
However, she emphasized that she is not abandoning her dreams of becoming a singer. “I have been practicing and going to class since it’s rare for me to find something that I like. Even though more people can get to know me through my acting projects, I still want to pursue singing eventually,” the young star expressed.
Indeed, Suey became better known after starring in The Man Who Kills Troubles. After the series was broadcasted, many viewers labeled her as the new generation of “jade girl.” But she begs to differ.
“I don’t understand why they would think that because I think jade girls are very gentle and poised like a goddess,” Suey said. “Many people’s first impression of me is that I am very gentle and temperamental, but they would not think so after two days of knowing me.”
In reality, Suey is more or less like her character in The Man Who Kills Troubles – self-confident, weird, and a jokester. The only difference is that she is not brave enough to pursue a guy in reality.
She shared that her ideal boyfriend is someone like South Korean entertainers Yoo Jae Suk (劉在錫) and Lee Kwang Soo (李光洙). “I don’t think the appearance really matters because only the inner qualities are eternal. A sense of humor and a kind heart is more important to me,” she expressed.
Her stance on love sheds light into her mature mindset. However, she said she matured slowly because she didn’t like to think in the past. Then she realized that it’s important to self-reflect if she wanted to grow up. She admits, “I’m a bit sentimental, and I would think about a lot of things, so my managers often say that I look mischievous.”
Though her thinking is forward, Suey acknowledges people still see her as a little girl. She expressed, “I really want to get rid of my little sister image because all my past roles are students who need to wear school uniforms, I hope I can try something new like a woman who exudes femininity.”
Suey added, “I hope I will have the opportunity to showcase more of myself on TV so viewers can discover my personality.”
