Ku Hye-sun revealed her wish to focus on her acting career during an interview with a local news outlet on Thursday.

“I originally wanted to continue acting rather than directing after my latest drama ‘Angel Eyes.’ But things always seem to turn out in an unexpected way,” she said.

“People think that I do everything I wish for, but that depends. Sometimes, when I want to start acting, directing comes to my hands. When I want to direct a movie, acting becomes my responsibility. So I tend to do things that I have been given,” Ku added.

Ku also shared her thoughts about her image as an actress.

“I do not want viewers to have one image of me, so I prefer my current plan and not to be seen only as an actress,” she said.

Ku recently finished directing her third feature-length film “Daughter,” which shows the complicated relationship between a daughter and a mother and her twisted motherhood. The movie was released on Nov. 6.
