Kim Ok Bin Says She′s Worried About Her Small Screen Return with ′Blade and Petal′
Kim Ok Bin revealed she′s a bit apprehensive about returning to the small screen.
At the press conference for KBS2′s upcoming drama Blade and Petal held on July 1, Kim Ok Bin said, "It′s my first drama in seven years, and it′s very difficult."
Kim Ok Bin′s last drama was MBC′s Over the Rainbow, which aired in 2006.
She said the reason she chose Blade and Petal was because of director Kim Yong Soo.
"I was a fan of producer Kim Yong Soo. I also wanted to act with the other seniors, and I like period pieces. I am a bit scared, but I chose this piece because I wanted to challenge myself in a new area," she said.
The actress will appear in the drama as Moo Young, daughter of King Young Ryu. The curious princess falls in love with Yeon Choong (Uhm Tae Woong) after meeting him while she was walking the streets disguised. Later on, she learns that he is the son of Yeon Gaesomun, who killed her father, and becomes determined to have her revenge.
Blade and Petal will start airing on July 3.
