The stills of Ha Ji Won with neat, straight hair and in a military uniform have been garnering much attention. Many netizens have been drawn to Ha Ji Won’s great figure even in a masculine military uniform. In order to prepare for her role as a North Korean Special Forces female operative, Ha Ji Won has been going through persistent physical training, losing 4 kilograms (about 8.8 pounds) and becoming very fit.
Producers of the drama commented, “For her role as Kim Hang Ah, a North Korean operative, Ha Ji Won has worked tirelessly to perfect the North Korean accent and military movements. Her charisma is making the drama even more perfect. Please look forward to her confident and serious military operative role.”
Ha Ji Won has gained much praise and popularity due to her reputation of being diligent, working hard and exerting herself in training to perfect the characters she is playing.
“The King 2hearts” will premiere on MBC on March 14 at 9:55PM KST.
