More news and pictures involving the leading ladies of SBS Princess Ja Myung Go, Jung Ryeo Won and Park Min Young has been revealed. The action scene between the two actresses were filmed between 4th – 6th January, lasting for consecutive 3 days at SBS Ilsan production center before wrapping up.
This particular fighting scene was about Princess Nak Rang (Park Min Young) infiltrating the tower that housed the mystical wardrums (that would sound in advance when rival nations attack them), hoping to destroy it. But she is thwarted by her elder sister, Princess Ja Myung (Ryeo Won).
To re-create a realistic looking model of the Ja Myung Go tower, the production team assembled a big-scale enviroment tower model within the SBS Ilsan production center. To get better moving pictures, 3 ENG (electronic news gathering ) camera sets were placed around the set. Ryeo Won and Park Min Young managed to complete the gruelling take after a few NGs which saw them battling each other with real swords, while dangling in the air on wires.
After being confirmed for the drama, Ryeo Won and Park Min Young had been dilligently learning martial arts and horse riding skills despite their petite looking bodies. The real swords that they were carrying for their fight scene weighed 3kg (imagine holding that for 3 days). But their hard work came in handy as their gusty performance in the fight scene without breaking into sweat won the praise of director Lee Myung Woo and the rest of the production team.
Princess Ja Myung Go will debut on 16th February through SBS.
