Lina on her first lead role in a drama, "Please look after me."

Lina on her first lead role in a drama, "In my first historical drama where I have a lead role... even if there is a lot of mistakes, please look after me."



[Reporter Kim Yang Soo] Cheong Sang Ji Hee The Grace's Lina (Lee Jiyeon) is taking the challenge of acting on her first TV drama.

On the 14th in the afternoon at the Sinpyeongdo Silla Millenium Park vicinity located in Gyeongju in Gyeongbuk province, KBS1 TV's historical drama 'The Great King's Dream' (Script: Yoo Dong Yoon, Kim Sun Duk, Director: Shin Chang Sik, Kim Sang Hwi) held an on-site public press conference. At the event were the leading actors Choi Soo Jung, Park Jung Mi, Lina, Jang Dong Jik and others attended.

Lina will play the role of being Kim Chun Chu's wife, the Queen Consort MuMyeong (MunHee), who will assist the king is his political endeavors.

Lina said, “The role of Queen Consort MunMyeong is my first challenge as an actor.” and “I will give effort in trying to show a best self.”

The drama is Lina's first traditional drama challenge and her first drama in the historical genre. While she has been on stage as a musical actress, being on a television recording stage is a first. She said, “We haven't started filming yet. We will go into production in August." She also expressed her feelings regarding the drama genre saying that "as it is an authentic historical drama, there is an unique feel in the olden days' dressing and speech that has been quite difficult to express.”

She also said, “Through an audition last year, I was chosen for this role. The director watched my abilities well and surprisingly gave me a large role. In such a position where I will learn diligently amongst acting seniors, I will do my best. Even if there is a lot of mistakes, please look after me.”

The drama 'The Great King's Dream' is based on the story of the Unified Silla founder King Taejong Muyeol (Kim Chun Chu) life's story during the time of The Unification of the Three Great Kingdoms project. As an 80-episode drama, the first episode will be broadcasted on September 8th at 9:40 pm.

She fits a Queen's role so well! :)

I've always thought Lina's the prettiest to ever debut from SM, after the flawless Eugene unni.

There was a list that was chosen by the fans, they hold the same sentiment with you, if memory serves.

My list goes BoA, Eugene, Lina.

I thought exactly the same. My pretty list would be Eugene, Lina, BoA, Yoona then Yeonhee. ;)

That she always does.

I LOVE Lina!!!

But 80 episodes of a Korean drama? I can barely get through the normal, what, 13 or so... I couldn't imagine 80 episodes.

Still, this is delaying her being with the group... which, I realize, doesn't mean anything since they don't do anything. Still, I want me some more complete Grace!

I think all Shapleys want CSJH to make a comeback as the original 4, but these days it is very unlikely to happen.

Perfect bias is perfect, I cannot wait. ♥ She looks stunning in that picture, and the role most definitely fits her. :D

I thought so too! If she were in a commoner role for this type of drama, it might have become a bigger stretch for her seeing as she look so regal even without any make up on.

she's such a classic beauty, love her!
aoza 17th-Jun-2012 12:47 pm (UTC)
TRUE!

Can you just imagine my reaction to this drama? XD

I'm so happy that she landed a major role for a historical drama especially being on the DL.

While we're at it, give us Shapley fans a brand new The Grace album, DAMMIT SM!
aoza 17th-Jun-2012 12:50 pm (UTC)
I know right! The fact that she impressed the director enough to give her such a big role is amazing in itself.

Ugh. SM should listen to us, really.

She's like my favourite lady in the KPop fandom. *_* Omg, she doesn't get enough appreciation. I'm sure she'll be really great, as proven by her MV appearance in that TRAX song. I hope she gets lots of drama roles. Omg, omg, omg. /freaksout
