Hwang Bora Reflects On New Life As Working Mom
On February 12, a video entitled “The reason Hwang Bora can’t rest even when she’s pregnant” was uploaded online.
In the clip, Hwang Bora, who’s in her fifth month of pregnancy, dished on her life as a working mom in the acting industry.
To recall, she married her long-time partner Cha Hyun Woo. She announced her pregnancy in November last year, surprising the public.
Although she’s pregnant, she doesn’t neglect her responsibilities as an actress. She continues to film her upcoming film “SAT, the Secret of the Question.”
“I’m so tired,” Hwang Bora said after completing her filming at 7:00 a.m. KST. “Filming always ends late. There’s also filming tomorrow and the day after it.”
Many fans worried over the actress’ condition. They wondered why Hwang Bora didn’t opt to stay at home, and focus on her pregnancy and upcoming childbirth.
In her defense, Cha Hyun Woo advised her to stay home but she insisted on continuing working. She reasoned, “I don’t want to disappear in the industry.”
According to Hwang Bora, she doesn’t want to have the “the actress that had a baby” image, which she claimed as an actress’ “most vulnerable point.”
Actresses Park Ha Sun, Kim Hee Sun and even Lee Honey experienced it firsthand. Thankfully, everyone was able to bounce back and reclaimed their spotlights.
She added that she can’t let go of her beloved job until the end. The actress assured that she’s handling both her pregnancy and her work well without compromising one another.
Hwang Bora also asked the fans to look forward to seeing her upcoming film, which is expected to air this 2024.
