Actress Park Ha-sun has made her position clear regarding MBC’s drama “The Veil”.

On Oct 13th, Park Ha-sun left a short message on her Instagram, saying, “The Veil is reaching its climax”.

She said, “I actually finished the main episodes before the show and already finished shooting the spin-off last month”.

She then concluded, “Please check out Seo Soo-yeon’s story of her death with a hidden secret in the spin-off “Moebius: The Veil” which will be on air the following week.”

When a netizen commented on her post, saying, “It’s the first time I’ve ever seen a drama where the main character died in the middle of the show”, Park Ha-sun replied, “There are series like that in the U.K, and I was impressed by it. I’ve heard about that from the beginning and thought it would be fun to do.”

She then added, “It’s not a sudden stop, but a scheduled one from the start”.

Park Ha-sun, who was also under controversy over her acting skill, played the role of Seo Soo-yeon, an NIS employee, in “The Veil”. Seo Soo-yeon collapsed and furiously bled after she was shot in episode 5 and eventually died in episode 6 which was aired on Oct 2nd. As a result, Park Ha-sun naturally left the show when there are still 6 episodes left, despite her role as the female lead.

The Director of MBC’s drama department, Hong Seok-woo, explained, “Seo Soo-yeon is originally designed for the role of a ‘game changer’ who leaves a shocking turning point in the middle of the film.”

Then, he emphasized, “Apart from dividing screen time, since this is an important and complicated character who connects the main characters in NIS, we needed a reliable actor with great acting skill. This role was the hardest to cast.”

The backstory of Seo Soo-yeon, which has ended in the main storyline, will be mentioned in the 2-episode spin-off called “Moebius: The Veil”. The spin-off will be broadcast on the 29th and 30th of October after the drama ends. Director Hong Seok-woo said, “We are trying to reveal how she became a spy intelligence agent. We have planned to unveil more stories focusing on the psychological thriller among agents.”

“The Veil”, starring Nam Goong-min, tells the story of a top NIS agent, who disappeared one year ago, returning to his organization to find out the insider traitor who dropped him into the abyss.
