Lim Ji Yeon to play the one-top lead in a historical drama after 12 years of debut
Actress Lim Ji Yeon was selected to play the one-top lead.
As a result of Star News’ exclusive coverage on May 17th, it was confirmed that Lim Ji Yeon was cast to play the female lead in JTBC’s new historical drama “Tale of Mrs. Ok”.
“Tale of Mrs. Ok” is a work that contains the fierce survival and success story of female slaves in the Joseon Dynasty. It depicts the real story of Gu Deok Yi (Lim Ji Yeon), whose name, identity and even husband were all fake.
“Tale of Mrs. Ok” is Lim Ji Yeon’s third attempt at historical works. Previously, Lim Ji Yeon showed her historical drama acting through SBS’ drama “The Royal Gambler” (2016) following the movie “The Treacherous” (2015). However, “Tale of Mrs. Ok” is the first time that Lim Ji Yeon leads the flow of a work alone and plays the one-top female lead.
After the success of Netflix’s “The Glory”, Lim Ji Yeon will appear in ENA’s “Lies Hidden in My Garden”, which will premiere on June 19th, and SBS’ “National Death Penalty Vote”, which is scheduled to air in the second half of the year. Besides, Lim Ji Yeon and Lee Do Hyun, who appeared in “The Glory” together, have been publicly dating since April 1st.
