Kim So Eun Dazzles as Angel L in ′Secret Angel′
Actress Kim So Eun may have been just another pretty girl while standing next to the original flower boys, but she′s officially transformed - into an angel.
Kim, who was recently cast in the Chinese drama Secret Angel (directed by Jo Woon, script by Moon Sun Hee), donned a white mini dress and angel wings to complete her pure-as-snow angel look.
In one of the pictures, Kim can be seen acting in midair with her white wings attached to her back. Her pure white mini dress and wings made her look like a real angel and attracted the attention of many viewers.
According to the production crew on the set, Kim practiced for her midair wire acting by doing a couple simulations beforehand. Once the filming started, Kim was able to adjust to the wires and completed her acting without a hitch.
Moreover, since Kim was playing the role of a angel, she had to spend about nine hours hanging in midair and acting out various scenes from the drama. And even though she couldn’t move her arms and legs freely due to the wire device around her, Kim was able to showcase her wonderful portrayal of the angel L and received praise from the production staff.
A rep from the production set said, “Although Kim So Eun spent more than nine hours in midair with her wire acts, she didn’t show any signs of being tired. The filming would have been difficult for most male actors, but Kim’s enthusiastic attitude made us think that she was a natural born actress.”
Viewers will be able to see Kim’s adorably angel character, L, in Secret Angel, which will be broadcast on both digital and cable TV and air in 27 different cities and provinces across China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Zhejiang, and Jiangsu.
Kim will costar alongside hallyu stars Jang Woo Hyuk and Chun Myung Hoon, as well as well known Chinese actor Chen Shi Ang. The season premiere of Secret Angel will air on Wednesday, March 21 on Sohu.com.
