It’s not a stretch to say that K-actress Lee Young Ae is in a league of her own when it comes to onscreen presence. There are certainly actresses prettier than her, and maybe even more well-known that her, but her style is so unique and memorable that the decade away from the screen has only made her return more impressive and impactful. She’s gotten even more radiant with age, marriage, and twins, so the only thing left to assess is how her acting may have changed without sharpening of the technique knife.
The first drama stills are out for her currently filming sageuk Saimdang: The Herstory, chronicling the life and love of real life famed historical personage Shin Saimdang. The drama will be fully pre-filmed and is scheduled to broadcast on SBS in 2016, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s scooped up for live-airing in China at the same time. I love these two drama stills, the backdrop is mesmerizing and the two leads look so beautiful my eyes hurt. Now if only my Heon oppa has learned how to act better since his last sageuk foray in Doctor Jin.
