Child actors in Korea are heavily dominated by desirable young boys and girls who exhibit their innocent charms in exchange for public affection. They are expected to smile, speak innocently, and connect with the audience with their light-hearted fun. However, with Kim Sae Ron who started as a child actress, there is a distinction because not only is she not afraid of darker roles, she seems to be attracted to them. Once quoted as saying, “Not every child in the world is bright”, someone should play the role of the child who carries the darkness, Sae Ron lives up to her beliefs, with TV shows like “Listen to My Heart,” “Secret Healer,” and “A Girl at My Door”, which are among her most popular. After growing up in the shadows and having no fear of the dark, she has become a self-illuminating actress that does in fact bring a special kind of light to all who can see!
