Jang Nara Transforms Into An Elegant Lady In “The Last Empress”
“The Last Empress” takes place in an alternate reality where Korea is run by a constitutional monarchy. It will tell the story of conspiracy, secrecy, love, greed, and revenge that surrounds the royal family.
Jang Na Ra will appear as an unknown musical actress named Oh Sunny who becomes an empress after getting married to the emperor.
In the stills, Jang Nara shows her graceful, softer side. She’s dressed in hanbok (traditional Korean clothing) and has her hair in a braid. This is the scene right before she enters the palace to be received by the grand empress dowager and queen mother.
She shows her pure, elegant charms as she smiles in her flower-adorned green top and yellow skirt. This scene was filmed in the city of Buyeo located in the South Chungcheong Province. For this scene, Oh Sunny put away her curly hair and loose-fitting clothing to transform into an elegant lady.
When she stepped onto the set, the staff praised her lovely and enchanting transformation with comments like, “You look really pretty,” and “You look like a doll wearing hanbok.” Jang Nara replied, “It’s comfortable in many ways because I am filming while wearing a hanbok for the first time in a while.”
She worked to control her emotions before filming and maintained lady Sunny’s elegant appearance. She put her arms together, stood shyly, and also made a cute expression to shake off some nerves. As soon as filming began, however, she filled the set with Oh Sunny’s feelings of nervousness and joy.
A source from the drama said, “Jang Nara is wowing everyone on set by not sparing herself physically while filming every single time. Please look forward to Jang Nara’s depiction of Oh Sunny which she is focusing on by giving her whole heart.”
“The Last Empress” will premiere as the follow-up drama to “Heart Surgeons” on November 21 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki!
