Jo Hyun Jae and his latest drama “King’s Daughter, Soo Baek Hyang” are featured in the Japanese magazine 韓国TVドラマ (KNTV, Vol.58.)
Title of the article: Jo Hyun Jae of “Seo Dong Yo” (SBS, 2005) once again becomes Baekje Prince in “King’s Daughter, Soo Baek Hyang”.
In the historical drama “Seo Dong Yo” ( 2005 SBS) , actor Jo Hyun Jae played the hero “Jang”, who experienced many hardships to become a great King of Baekje. After a lapse of 8 years, Jo Hyun Jae becomes a Baekje Prince once again in another historical drama.
Jo Hyun Jae plays the hero Baekje Crown Prince Myeong Nong, who will later become King Seong (26th King of Baekje). JHJ will be involved in a tragic love story with Soo Baek Hyang, played by Seo Hyun Jin. Also in the drama is Ha Ji Won’s younger brother, Jeon Tae Soo (“Sungkyuwan Scandal”, KBS, 2010).
Eight years later starred in another historical drama, feels a special affinity for Baekje.
JHJ: After “Seo Dong Yo” I have played a variety of roles in modern dramas. Originally, I did not particularly want to do another historical drama, but after reading the story of “King’s Daughter” I felt the charm of the story, so I decided to star in this drama. I am truly grateful to the director and screenwriter for offering this role to me.
I also heard that the drama will be filmed in Buyeo, the same place where “Seo Dong Yo” was filmed. I feel very happy about this, I feel there is a special fate between Baekje and me.
Editor: According to the Japanese network news, “King’s Daughter” will air in Japan in 2014.
I never doubted that “King’s Daughter” will be broadcast in Japan because all previous JHJ dramas have been aired in Japan. But for a Japanese broadcaster to secure the rights to air the drama even while it is still airing in Korea (we are not even at the halfway mark yet!) means the Japanese are confident that the drama will be well-accepted by Japanese viewers.
I am so happy for our Soo Baek Hyang Team, all their hard-work is being rewarded.
