Upcoming KBS drama “Jeon Woo Chi” unveiled its first teaser of its female lead UEE (After School) in action. In the series, UEE plays Princess Hong Mu Yeon, the granddaughter of Hong Gil Dong and Jeon Woo Chi’s love interest. She’s placed under a dark magic that took away her ability to feel emotions and controls her.
UEE’s began shooting earlier this month on October 7 in Naju, South Jeolla Province, completing wire and action scenes with ease. It’s been said that while UEE initially showed slight fear and doubt, she flew through her scenes flawlessly and appeared to enjoy them. Despite filming for 12 hours straight, UEE continued on with a bright smile.
Following the shoot, UEE revealed, “I’ve never been on wires before, so I was a little scared and worried. However, once we started, I had a lot of fun filming because it was more enjoyable than what I’d imagine.”
A remake of the popular fantasy movie “Jeon Woo Chi,” the drama of the same name stars Cha Tae Hyun and Uee (After School) as leads. Cha Tae Hyun will be playing the titular role of Jeon Woo Chi, who swallows a Gumiho’s bead, giving him Taoist magic. He buses his powers to help rescue the people from famine and tyrannical government, becoming a legendary hero in Joseon.
“Jeon Woo Chi” will replace “Nice Guy” on KBS on November 21, 2012.
