After the reporters fiasco 2 days earlier, the production team have acted swiftly by releasing another news related to the drama Star’s Lover today. Choi Ji Woo will be turned into Hwang Jin-I, a legendary gisaeng of the Joseon Dynasty and this will be her first time wearing a period costume since her debut.
Since her debut in 1994, Choi Ji Woo has never been in a period drama and this will be her first. This particular period movie scene which sees her character, Lee Ma Ri turn into Hwang Jin-I will be shown in the first episode tonight.
Choi Ji Woo has been acting out lots of scenes associated with a top star, walking the red carpet, drama announcement, press conference, etc and now a movie filming scene. Those present at the filming felt that it was like a woman from a painting and expressed, “Hwang Jin-I is back.” Although this scene appears for just a few seconds, Choi Ji Woo took nearly 3 hours for makeup, outfitting, etc. Choi Ji Woo expressed, “It’s a pity that the scene was for only a short time. But my wish of appearing in a period drama was fulfilled.”
