At the press conference for the drama, which was held on August 19, Kim Gyu Tae marveled at IU’s talent, calling her a “genius.” “I think she will receive tremendous praise for her acting and passion for her work. She really did a good job of embodying her character, and her energy surprised even me,” Kim Gyu Tae says.
He continues, “Her artistic sense, ability to analyze the story and account for the acting details, and chemistry with other actors are truly exceptional. She is a keen and brilliant actress. She didn’t require barely any direction while filming.”
“On set, she barely ever had the script in her hands. She began filming with that perfect level of self-preparation,” Kim Gyu Tae says.
The first two episodes of “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo” will air back-to-back on August 29.
