“Is that human or an angel?”, that was what most people remarked photos of Shin Ae dressed in a light purple period dress at the filming scene of her upcoming saeguk drama Empress Chun Chu was released yesterday.
According to her management, “In KBS2TV new saeguk drama Empress Chun Chu, premiering on 3rd January, Shin Ae plays Empress Chun Chu (Chae Si Ra) sister Hwang Bo Seol who would become the mother to King Heonjong.”
Last month, Shin Ae had already exhibited her chinese lute (pipa) skills which she had learned in her free time prior to her first filming. Shin Ae’s alluring charisma as the pure and kind-hearted Queen won the praise of the production crew. While Shin Ae was being filmed playing the chinese lute, people started gathering around to watch her, resulting in filming being stopped.
Not just that, the production crew also explained the amazing scenes that followed. When Shin Ae started playing the chinese lute, the child actors/actresses and other production crew stopped what they are doing and started to focus their attention at the sight of Shin Ae filming.
One recalled the comments being said, “Looking at Shin Ae, it’s like an angel had just descended from heaven”, “She is a very beautiful queen”. With this being the first time that so many people had gathered around for a filming scene, one crew jokingly said, “Shin Ae is the only celebrity here.”
(Jung Hyung Don used to say that on We Got Married, lol)
Empress Chun Chu PD, Shin Chang Suk also couldn’t stop praising Shin Ae, “Shin Aeis simply perfect for the camera for her role as the Queen. I am very happy to be able to retain her beautiful looks on camera.”
Shin Ae would be appearing at the end of January on Empress Chun Chu after the conclusion of the children drama scenes. Shin Ae whose popularity has skyrocketed in a short time thanks to MBC We Got Married had received lots of invitations to appear at the year-end awards ceremony/music festivals. But Shin Ae will only attend those that doesn’t affect her filming schedule for Empress Chun Chu and will make her decision at a later date.
