[HanCinema's News] Shin Hye-sun's Training for her Role as a Ballerina in "Angel's Last Mission: Love"

In "Angel's Last Mission: Love" Shin Hye-sun plays the fallen ballerina, Yeon-seo, who becomes blinded in an accident. But before the drama gets to that part, Shin Hye-sun can be seen doing her own stunts in various ballet scenes.


The role is already a reversal for Shin Hye-sun. While Yeon-seo is portrayed as being a very cold woman, her previous high-profile leading roles in "My Golden Life" and "Thirty But Seventeen" showed her as a generally pure and optimistic woman. Now she's playing an ice queen.

In addition to the acting challenge Shin Hye-sun has also steeled herself for the role through physical training. According to the drama's dance director Shin Hye-sun had been doing pilates and other various intensive physical exercises in addition to ballet training for the role, but had never once complained.

Such behavior is consistent with method acting for the role, as Yeon-seo is also portrayed as being a very determined, single-minded person when it comes to dreams of physical achievement. "Angel's Last Mission: Love" is currently airing on Wednesday and Thursdays at 10 PM on KBS2.
