Kim Ok Bin Is An Ambitious And Intelligent Woman In First Stills For Upcoming tvN Drama
Kim Ok Bin has made a transformation into her character Tae Al Ha for tvN’s upcoming weekend drama “Arthdal Chronicles” (literal translation).
“Arthdal Chronicles” will premiere in June as the follow-up to “Confession” and will tell the story of heroes and their fate as legends in the fictional city of Arthdal.
Kim Ok Bin will play Tae Al Ha, the daughter of the chief of a seafaring tribe that introduced new skills and technology. She is hungry for power and is willing to do whatever it takes to get it. The new stills reflect this as Kim Ok Bin stands tall with ambition in her eyes. Anticipation is high to see how Tae Al Ha uses everything she has to rise to power.
Screenwriters Kim Young Hyun and Park Sang Yeon said, “Tae Al Ha stands out the most and is the smartest and most beautiful character in the drama, but because of the changing times as society moves to a patriarchal structure, she suffers because of her beauty.” They added, “However, Tae Al Ha does not simply accept the reality she faces. She uses everything and everyone, from her father to her lover to her family status, to find a path for herself.”
They also added, “Tae Al Ha was a gifted warrior from a young age and she is extremely intelligent with great knowledge in the sciences, but she has had to hide that side of her. She is like a bouquet of beautiful flowers hiding a sharp sword within. She may begin as a person who is used by those in power, but she is able to change her situation for herself and become a woman of ambition with control over others. When writing out the character, we couldn’t think of anyone else to play the role than Kim Ok Bin.”
“Arthdal Chronicles” will premiere in June.
