The 3rd woman who will play Kim Momi In Netflix “Mask Girl” has finally been unveiled!
Netflix series ‘Mask Girl’ has released stills of rising star Lee Han Byul, whose identity has been concealed until now. It was revealed she had passed the auditions where 1000 women competed for the role.
‘Mask Girl’ is a Netflix series that tells the story of Kim Momi, an ordinary office worker with appearance insecurities who becomes an internet BJ (broadcast jockey) wearing a mask at night and gets caught up in unexpected incidents.
Director Kim Yong Hoon took on the daring challenge of casting veteran actress Go Hyun Jung, idol Nana, and newcomer Lee Han Byul to play three different versions of Kim Momi as an internet BJ, showgirl, and prison inmate, respectively.
Lee Han Byul, who has been hidden under a veil, plays the first version of Kim Momi to appear. Despite wanting to become a celebrity, Kim Momi couldn’t fulfill her dreams due to her appearance and works as a dull office worker during the day, while showcasing her hidden charm as the masked internet BJ, Mask Girl, at night. Director Kim Yong Hoon said, “I met Lee Han Byul fatefully among many actors during auditions. Her strong desire to act resonated with the emotions that Kim Momi feels.”
Lee Han Byul expressed her heartfelt feelings about the character of Kim Momi, saying, “Through encountering various characters and stepping into unknown places on the boundary between what one has and what one doesn’t have and wants to have, my vulnerable side was revealed as I wanted to be loved and to love as I am.”
She considered it her biggest mission to make the character of Momi leave an unforgettable impression on viewers from the beginning of ‘Mask Girl’ and draw them in immediately. Lee Han Byul hopes that viewers can find empathy and comfort in the emotions they feel when watching the show.
She also expressed her desire for the message of ‘Mask Girl’ to reach viewers around the world and provide both big and small empathy and comfort to all those who live with wounds.
“Mask Girl” was simultaneously released in over 190 countries worldwide through Netflix earlier today.
