[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.
