Ha Ji Won Kicks Ass in ‘The King 2Hearts’
MBC has released more still cuts from the set of its upcoming drama The King 2Hearts, and actress Ha Ji Won proves, once again, that she’s more than just a pretty face.
The first episode of the drama, which is set to air on March 21, will feature Ha displaying her hand-to-hand combat skills as an instructor for the North Korean Special Forces Unit.
Ha’s character Kim Hang Ah will enter a freestyle fighting competition, and the actress is said to have performed all of the stunts herself for the scene that took six to seven hours to film.
A representative from the production company, Kim Jong Hak Production, said, “Ha Ji Won surprised the staff members by giving her all and performing the various actions scenes, which most actresses find difficult to do, without hesitation.”
The rep continued, “Keep your eye on Ha Ji Won’s never-before-seen transformation and enthusiastic acting.”
The drama, which also stars Lee Seung Gi, will take over hit drama The Sun and the Moon’s timeslot when it premieres on March 21.
