- Ku shows “perfect transformation’ into graceful & innocent poet Huh Nansulhun
Actress Ku Hye Sun appears in MBC channel’s two-part documentary drama “Huh Nansulhun” (written by Kim Mi Ji, produced by Park Tae Sam) and takes part in the program’s narration and production, too.
“Huh Nansulhun” is a special two-part drama created by Gangneung MBC, which will be broadcasted in February. In the drama, Ku Hye Sun acts the role of “Huh Nansulhun”, the heroine, and “Ku Hye Sun in present days”. Plus, she takes the role of the narrator to lead the documentary and partially produced the drama, exerting her capabilities as a producer.
Part 1 of “Huh Nansulhun” is a documentary drama and part 2 consists of a making film and documentary. Ku produced the drama part in part 1 of the program. The production crew visited Huh Nansulhun’s house of birth located in Chodang, Gangneung, as well as Beijing, Nanjing, Jinan in China, for a perfect historical research. Ku also visited Berlin and Bremen, Germany to collect relevant documents on her own.
Ku Hye Sun has displayed a variety of talents as an actress, filmmaker, painter, and singer, and she now spotlights the inner world of Huh Nansulhun from her perspective in “Huh Nansulhun”.
In a still cut that was disclosed before the broadcasting, Ku is releasing an innocent appeal in an elegant hanbok (Korean traditional clothe) and traditional bottom-bun hair style.
Documentary drama “Huh Nansulhun” spotlights the life of Huh Nansulhun, the best woman poet of the Joseon Dynasty, and introduces different voices and perspectives from our contemporaries about her. The meaning of Huh Nansulhun is newly seen in the context of the present age, from perspectives of researchers, writers, painters, actors, and ordinary citizens.
Huh Nansulhun sang her faith and ideals that went beyond the norms of the Joseon Dynasty, in which social restraints on women were especially strong, but died early at the age of 27. Ku Hye Sun perfectly acts as Huh Nansulhun in her own way, to express Hu’s keen intellect and rich emotions through her eyes.
Meanwhile, Ku Hye Sun is expecting the release of her film “Daughther” (2014), for which she played triple roles as the producer, screenwriter, and main actress.
