CSJH The Grace's Lina lands a KBS Drama Role

CSJH The Grace’s Lina in KBS1’The King’s Dream’ as Choi Soojung’s Woman

Lina (28), a member of the idol quartet, CSJH The Grace, will play the role of the King’s woman.

Scheduled for broadcast in August, Lina has been cast in KBS1 weekend drama, 'The King’s Dream'. She will play the wife of Kim Chun chu (Choi Soojung’s character). Though active as a singer and musical actress, this is her first time appearing in a TV drama. Drama official have said that, "Because of her activity in the musical stage, she has built a career in acting. Having a fresh face seen in drama would be an advantage.”

Playing Kim Moonhee, the unification of three nations is set on the foundation of the relationships between siblings and politics. Being the sister of a political ally, Kim Yooshin, Kim Chunchu strives towards political unification of the Three Kingdoms with troubles along the way.

Lina is an artist from SM Entertainment. In 2002, she debuted in the female duo, Isak N Jiyeon before becoming part of the quartet, CSJH The Grace in 2005. In the past year, she has starred in the musical productions, 'Fame', 'Temptation of Wolves' and 'Youth’s March'.

Originally the title for the Drama was supposed to be Tae Myuweol/태종무열왕… but they changed it to “King’s Dream/대왕의 꿈” for copyright purposes, I guess.

Also, this is my personal translation so it might actually be very rough, though the basic gist is still there. Lina, during her birthday celebration with fans, answered questions about her activities revealing her involvement in the drama and talking about her going to acting and beauty classes to prepare for the role. Some reliable sources also say that filming will start in May… which is exciting because, being a stan of hers since Isak N Jiyeon, I cannot wait to see tweet pictures from the set! ^^

PS. MODS, this is my first time posting so I'm not entirely sure how to tag this except for the group tag.

PS. To those who are unfamiliar with Lina, she is not biracial. :) Born to Korean parents, she's just natural beautiful. <3
