Producer of ′Heaven′s Will′ Says Song Ji Hyo′s Image in ′Running Man′ Overshadows Her Acting
Chief Producer Moon Bo Hyun of KBS2′s Heaven′s Will opened up on what he thinks about the debate surrounding Song Ji Hyo′s acting skills.
At the press roundtable for Heaven′s Will held on May 7, he said that her skills are "undervalued."
"I believe it′s because her image in the variety show Running Man is so strong. She is more well known as the ′ace′ of Running Man, and her blank character is so strong that it also leads into issues over her acting skills," he said.
Song Ji Hyo appears in the drama as Hong Da In, a proud palace nurse. Many viewers, however, reviewed that her character doesn′t mix with the drama itself.
Moon Bo Hyun added, "We expected such reactions, and it′s a question we and Song Ji Hyo must overcome. Her work doesn′t fall behind those of the other actors in Heaven′s Will. We believe opinions about her acting will improve as the drama continues to progress."
Heaven′s Will is about the fight of a Joseon doctor to save his daughter while running from his false murder charges.
