Lee Jung-hyun to Join "King Sejong"

2008/02/22 | 412 views | Permalink | Source

Singer/actress Lee Jung-hyun will join the cast of KBS historical epic "The Great King Sejong" in mid-March. She will play the Cinderella-like role of Shinbin Kim, who was first a lady-in-waiting for Queen Soheon but later became King Sejong's concubine. The competition between Queen Soheon and Lee's character for the king's affection will be one of the key attractions of the story.

Having graduated from Chungang University on Tuesday, Lee said she was so nervous about her first appearance on a historical drama that she is taping and monitoring all historical dramas currently on air. She also practices her diction to suit her role by reading the scripts aloud.

Although a number of filmmakers have contacted her, Lee says she's biding her time to act in a serious film directed by renowned directors like Kim Ki-duk or Lee Chang-dong. Meanwhile, she plans to resume her singing career in Korea by releasing an album in late 2008 or early 2009.
