Which stars have risen through "Yi San"?

2008/06/19 Source

Actors Han Sang-jin, Lee Jong-soo, and Kim Yeo-jin. They are stars who are receiving interest due to MBC "Yi San". Han Sang-jin, who first emerged in "White Tower", left the title of 'beginner' through "Yi San". Lee Jong-soo succeeded in changing his image from an entertainer to an actor. Kim Yeo-jin also acted as the evil character and confirmed her abilities.

Han Sang-jin who arose with 'Hong Gook-yeong Quotes'

Han Sang-jin began as a clothing model in 1997, and although he was in "KAIST" and "Something Happened in Bali", he didn't see the light for ten years. His face became known last year in "White Tower" as Park Gun-ha.

Han Sang-jin, who got to meet the character of Hong Gook-yeon, played an important role in pulling up the popularity of "Yi San", even producing a list of famous quotes. He also received the 'new actor award' for MBC last year.

Han Sang-jin said, "Directors Lee Byeong-hoon and Kim Geun-hong have been a light to my whole family". He thanked them for the opportunity to show himself as an actor through the role of Hong Gook-yeon.

Lee Jong-soo, from burdensome entertainer to skilled actor

Lee Jong-soo is someone who has truly received a new life through "Yi San". He himself said, ""Yi San" was a turning point in my acting career".

Before starring in "Yi San", he was active in many entertainment shows. He also received the nickname 'eagle eye' for his overwhelming stare. But after receiving a request for the role of Dae-su, he left the three variety shows he was doing, and was reborn as Dae-su, with his sunflower-like love for Song-yeon (Han Ji-min) and his loyalty to the king.

Kim Yeo-jin, monochromatic to chromatic color actress

Kim Yeo-jin, who played monochromatic roles with her comfortable image, fully played the role of an evil character.

She plays the manipulative and aspiring queen who continually tries to assassinate the king. She plays a role important to the development of the story. She herself said, "I will never forget this. It was the strongest role I've played so far. It was a character that went beyond average people so it was inevitable that my energy was drained. But it was still fun and it was a role that made me grow a step". She showed that this work gave her a name and new possibilities.
