Kong Hyo Jin Returns as a Girl Who Can See Ghosts for ′The Sun of the Lord′
Kong Hyo Jin will be bringing ghosts to the small screen this summer as a woman who can see ghosts.
The actress will appear in SBS′ The Sun of the Lord as Tae Gong Sil, a woman who never sees the world the same way again when, following a fateful accident, she starts to see ghosts.
She will be a dark yet lovely character, who fits the romantic comedy and horror genre of the drama.
Mid-June, Kong Hyo Jin shot a scene in which she screams after seeing a ghost while trying to kiss her lover.
Before the shoot, she made sure to check her script again and monitor her shoot, and as soon as producer Jin Hyuk shouted ′action′, she became the perfect Tae Gong Sil.
Comedian Lee Sung Woo cameoed as Gong Sil′s lover. Kong Hyo Jin took the lead for the inexperienced comedian, trying to make him feel less nervous by engaging him in conversation before the shoot.
A rep from the drama′s production company Born Factory said, "Kong Hyo Jin is a unique actress that won′t settle for her title as romcom queen; she always takes on other genres. You can look forward to seeing another Kong Hyo Jin act that will take over Korea through this new ′romcomic horror′ genre."
The Sun of the Lord is about a delicate woman who can see ghosts and her relationship with an arrogant man. So Ji Sub will be Kong Hyo Jin′s costar.
The drama will air its first episode on July 31.
