On October 4, it was reported that singer NS Yoon-G has confirmed to appear in the upcoming SBS drama “Dignity of an Empress” (literal translation). By joining this drama, NS Yoon-G will begin her official activities as an actress under her real name, Kim Yoon-Ji.
The upcoming drama “Dignity of an Empress” will also star Jang Na-Ra. It is set in an alternate reality, where South Korea is still under the constitutional monarchy. A musical actress named Oh Sunny (Jang Na-Ra) becomes an overnight Cinderella when she marries into the imperial family. However, she manages to fight against those in power in order to find her true love.
In the drama, Kim Yoon-Ji will take on the role of Hyun-Joo. Even though she is a junior colleague of Oh Sunny, she looks down on her senior because of the noticeable difference in their popularities. However, once Oh Sunny starts to gain recognition from the public as she marries into the loyal family, Hyun-Joo becomes jealous and starts plotting against her.
Meanwhile, Kim Yoon-Ji first debuted as a singer under the name NS Yoon-G. Afterwards, she received much praise from the public for her extraordinary talent and positive attitude. She signed an exclusive contract with VAST Entertainment last year and officially announced her wish to debut as an actress. Since then, she has been appearing in various independent films to start building up her career.
