Jang Nara Has Food Delivered to Set of ‘The Sun and the Moon’
Jang Nara bought 150 bowls of samgyetang (Korean chicken soup) for the staff of MBC’s The Sun and the Moon on January 28. It seems like a random bit of generosity, but there was actually a pretty good reason behind the surprise present.
The present came from her friendship with Kim Min Seo, who is appearing in The Sun and the Moon as the king’s wife Bo Kyung.
The two first met in 2011 in the KBS2 drama Babyfaced Beauty, after which Jang started to concentrate on her acting piece in China. Jang wanted to show her support for Kim, who she heard was having a hard time filming the drama amidst the cold weather and her hard core schedule.
Although Jang wasn’t able to make it to the set herself, she had a banner reading ‘Please look after Bo Kyung. Nara jjang, the head of Kim Min Seo’s fanclub’ posted up where the samgyetang was being given out.
Kim herself showed her support for the staff by delivering the samgyetang and side dishes to the staff herself.
Kim said in thanks, “Nara unni’s support is helping me a lot. As so many people are sending in their support and love, I’ll work harder and repay them with a better drama.”
In the meantime, The Sun and the Moon is getting more and more interesting as Hwon (Kim Soo Hyun), Wol (Han Ga In) and Bo Kyung (Kim Min Seo) meet in the palace.
