Type mo bang umakting sa mga K-drama? Pinay actress sa ‘All Of Us Are Dead’ nagbigay ng bonggang tips
Noreen Joyce Guerra
MARAMING K-drama fans na Pinoy ang napa-sana all nang malaman nilang may young Filipina actress na napasama sa hit South Korean zombie series na “All Of Us Are Dead.”
Ang tinutukoy namin ay si Noreen Joyce Guerra na matagal nang aktres sa Korea at nakagawa na ng kulang-kulang sa 100 K-drama, kabilang na riyan ang “All of Us Are Dead”, “True Beauty” at “The Smile Has Left Your Eyes.”
Sa panayam kay Noreen ng isang online show ng ABS-CBN, ay hindi siya nagdamot sa pagse-share sa lahat ng Pinoy na nagnanais ding maka-penetrate sa showbiz industry ng Korea.
May ilang tips na ibinahagi ang dalaga sa mga kapwa Filipino na gusto ring umakting sa mga K-drama.
“If you want to really come to Korea to do this background acting thing, be prepared financially kasi hindi niya mako-cover ‘yung expenses mo in living here in Korea. So you have to have a full-time job or back up finances.
“Of course you have to learn the language. Language is a very important thing in order to work here in Korea,” pahayag ni Noreen.
Kuwento pa niya, nagsimula siyang umakting sa Korea matapos makakuha ng degree roon, “I’ve been living in Korea for six years. I came here as a student and after my degree, I started working and now I’m doing acting on the side.”
“Back in the Philippines actually I was a volunteer at the Korean Cultural Center and from there I met a lot of people from the industry.
“When I came to Korea, I got to reconnect with them, and they introduced me to several part-time jobs related to the industry. While doing that, I met producers and directors, who told me to try on-cam gigs. So yeah, I tried it and right now I’m still doing it,” chika pa niya.
May full-time job din daw siya sa isang financial firm sa Korea, “Basically I do my full-time job during the weekdays and I do acting and filming on the side during weekends normally. Or holidays. Part-time talaga siya.”
Samantala, ang 2011 Korean series na “Dream High” ang naging inspirasyon niya sa pagpunta roon, “Back in the Philippines, I was actually a drama fan. So I watched this drama, Dream High, and it was because of that drama that I dreamed of coming to Korea.”
Pagbabalik-tanaw pa ng dalaga, “Memorable talaga sa akin ‘yung ‘True Beauty’ and ito nga, ‘All of Us Are Dead’ kasi doon ako nakilala. And of course, ‘yung first appearance ko sa K-drama which is ‘The Smile Has Left Your Eyes,’ since hindi pa ako marunong mag-Korean that time. Most of my roles actually are Korean so I have to blend with Korean people.”
Tungkol naman sa mga favorite niyang Korean stars, “Hindi ko makakalimutan siguro, my favorite actresses like Moon Ga-young and So Yoo-jin because even back in the Philippines I was a fan of them.
“And ‘yung sa drama na ‘Dream High’, ‘yung ibang actors doon, I met personally through being sa mga K-dramas nila like Kim Soo-hyun, Ok Taecyeon,” sey pa ni Noreen.
Sa isang hiwalay na panayam, naikuwento naman ni Noreen ang naging karanasan bilang extra sa “All of Us Are Dead”, “We actually filmed it two years ago, back in 2020.
“It was summer and it was very hot. Like 35 degree celcius and we were wearing winter uniforms. So lahat kami pawis na pawis. But yes, since ‘yung mga kasama namin ay mostly high school students, fun, very light environment. Parang nag-fieldtrip lang kami.
“Memorable moment ko siguro is ‘yung super aga naming gumising. The call time was 2 or 3 in the morning because we have to travel four hours away from Seoul, to get to the school, ‘yung Hyosan High School. ‘Yun ‘yung pinaka-memorable all throughout kasi we have to wake up every day nang maaga,” pagbabahagi pa niya.
