On the March 21 episode of MBC’s The King Two Hearts, Kim Hang Ah, played by Ha Ji Won, a female military officer from the North Korean Army, visits South Korea to take part in an international meeting of military officers.
Hang Ah is a legendary figure in North Korea as a competent military officer but also an old maid who is eager for a happy marriage. However her ingrained tough, military habits prevent her from appealing to men and she is frequently turned down.
In this situation, Hang Ah cannot help getting excited about good-looking South Korean stars imprinted on large-size electronic display boards: Kang Dong Won, Hyun Bin, Jo In Sung, and Rain. As we still remember the romantic couple of Ha Ji Won and Hyun Bin in Secret Garden, her enthusiastic response toward the photos as Hang Ah made viewers burst into laughter.
She mentioned Hyun Bin to her military colleagues, saying, “I heard he joined the army a year ago. I think we can have a chance to meet him in person since we’re all soldiers.”
Aside from Hyun Bin, Ha Ji Won has also acted in drama series and films together with Jo In Sung and Kang Dong Won.
AGB Nielsen’s TV audience ratings showed on March 22 that the March 21 episode of The King Two Hearts achieved 16.2% of the viewing audience, the largest in its time slot.
