Lee Si Young displayed her outstanding physical prowess in the pilot of “Lady Action.”
The two-part pilot episode of the show, which features actresses Jo Min Soo, Kim Hyun Joo, Son Tae Young, Choi Yeo Jin, Lee Mi Do, and Lee Si Young attempting action stunt challenges, was broadcast on KBS 2TV on May 8 and 9. During the two broadcasts, Lee Si Young wowed everyone with her superior physical fitness when performing the various tests.
Having a fear of heights, however, the actress had a difficult time with the 11 meter fall stunt. She even cried a bit as she expressed her doubt about being able to complete the task. Despite her doubts, though, she completed her mission successfully by making the jump.
To make up for her disappointment in that challenge, the actress then boldly proclaimed that she would attempt a fire stunt with the same difficulty as the stunt’s demonstrator, heavily applying a water gel to protect her against burns. After her successful completion of the challenge, director Jung Dong Hyuk praised her enthusiasm, saying, “That’s the first time I’ve seen an actress run through fire.” Son Tae Young also completed the fire stunt after Lee Si Young.
Meanwhile, “Lady Action” features six actresses as they recreate a variety of action stunts including high altitude wire, water, and fire challenges.
