Actress Ha Ji Won recently showed off her charisma in a uniform.
On February 29, Kim Jong Hak production company for MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday series The King 2 Hearts released stills of Ha, who plays the role of a North Korean instructor for the Special Forces, named Kim Hang Ah.
In the stills, Ha is standing at attention in a purple uniform. According to the production company, Ha has been exercising hard and lost four kilograms to portray a charismatic female officer.
On February 7, Ha shot a scene for the series in Icheon, Gyeonggi Province, and looked like a real officer. The entire crew praised her for performing well with a serious voice. Her angular hand salute captured many people’s attention.
A spokesperson for the production company says, “Ha is doing a wonderful job portraying a North Korean officer. She learned how to speak with a North Korean accent and how to act like a soldier. Her charismatic performance will make the series perfect.”
The series is about a North Korean instructor for the Special Forces named Kim Hang Ah and a South Korean prince named Lee Jae Ha (played by Lee Seung Gi). They are prejudiced against each other, but they will ultimately fall in love.
