T-ara’s Eun Jung and Qri ditched their T-ara wardrobes for hanboks, the traditional Korean dress. Stills of Eun Jung as Jin Ayi and Qri as Princess Yeo Jin have been released. For King Geunchogo, Eun Jung has gone through a complete transformation since her Dream High days. In the photos, Eun Jung has a fierce look in her eyes as she’s practicing her swordsmanship. Eun Jung holds a third-degree black belt in taekwondo, and it’s been said that her athleticism helped her film the action sequences.
Eun Jung and Qri were able to smoothly complete their first shooting, and their segments will start airing April 15th. It’s been a rocky road for the cast and crew behind King Geunchogo as they have gone through actor-staff conflicts, DUI incidents, and assault cases; and everyone is hoping that Eun Jung and Qri’s presence will lighten the atmosphere. King Geunchogo is Qri’s second saeguk (historical drama) since MBC’s Queen Seonduk.
