Jang Nara for Star1 Magazine and Considering Offer as Blind Female Lead in Romance K-drama

I’ve heard good things of Jang Nara‘s last year K-drama Go Back Spouses and it’s one on my marathon when I have a chunk of free time. She’s so consistent these days with drama work, doing at least one a year and picking smartly in roles that suit her age, experience, and onscreen style. She’s now been offered the leading lady role in upcoming K-drama Dog, Witch, and Me where she will play a blind character. The last blind female lead in a K-drama that I remember was Song Hye Kyo in That Winter, the Wind Blows and she did a really solid job.

But that drama was a super melodrama and this one sounds like a rom-com, as Jang Nara is an arrogant character even being blind, a Julliard trained musician who lost her sight later in life in a car accident. Her seeing eye dog is loyal and guides her everywhere, but the veterinarian male lead who raised the dog becomes hell bent on separating her and the dog. That sounds awful but I’m sure there’s a good reason for it, and also sounds like a comedy of errors and loads of bickering built in. She’s considering the offer for now and looking fantastic to start of 2018 in a new Star1 sophisticated spread. Continue reading
