On February 21, the magazine Allure Korea revealed a photoshoot with the actress who is best known for playing the role of Lee Sara on The Glory, 

The title of the photoshoot is “HERE I AM,” and it shows the actress with noticeably shorter hair. Kim Hieora’s gift for expressions is put on full display, and her signature gaze levies the shoot with gravitas.

During the interview portion, the actress also revealed how she was cast.

I wasn’t familiar (with the role) during the audition, and I just did my best. The second time they called me, I was able to show the (casting directors) drawings that I drew as a hobby, and I left. That day I received a parcel with the drama’s script in it. I was so happy. I cried so much.

The actress also revealed that encouragement from the drama’s director, Ahn Gil Ho, and star-writer Kim Eun Sook had helped her gain confidence to flourish in the role.

After I was cast, the writer (Kim Eun Sook) told me that I had the eyes of Sara, that she had imagined (while writing the script). The director also told me to ‘Just be yourself. You just have to do whatever you’d like,’ and entrusted me with the role, which answered a lot of the questions I had. Thanks to them, I was able to effortlessly and joyfully become Sara. I think I am a lucky actor.

Lastly, Kim Hieora finished the interview by stating which genres she’d like to act in next.

I would like to try (acting in) a periodic drama and would like to try my hand in (acting out) a very Korean role. I want to enjoy myself, as I am, a little longer. I want to try various (roles) afforded to me because I am a supporting actor. I want to greet audiences through great projects for a long time.
