TV Chosun’s new series “Get Revenge,” which started airing last week, has met with a good reception as it stars actress Kim Sa-rang, who is returning to the small screen for the first time in five years.
Kim plays a woman who gains instant celebrity after getting married, only to see her life turned upside down when her husband frames her in a false scandal. The series depicts her efforts to take revenge on him.
Kim expressed excitement about her role, which departs from those she has played previously.
“I always wanted to play a strong and dominant woman like the main character in the American TV series ‘Homeland,'” she said. “I’ve never played a character who has to fight her way through life before.”
She also performs action scenes in the drama for the first time in her career.
Fans are excited to see what kind of chemistry she will create with her co-star Yoon Hyun-min, who plays a lawyer who helps Kim’s character take revenge.
“On the surface he is an unscrupulous lawyer defending rich clients but behind their back he plots revenge on behalf of the victims of the rich,” Yoon said. He added, “I was attracted to the character because he has both good and evil in him.”
Yoon, a former baseball player, has appeared in a number of TV series since making his acting debut in the musical “Finding Kim Jong-wook” in 2010. “I had my hair cut short for the first time in 10 years for the role. I closely studied the way lawyers speak and behave,” he added.
Asked if the character is similar to himself, he said, “I’m not cold-hearted at all. In fact, I’m acting the opposite of the real me.” Kim said, “I will be happy if viewers take a vicarious pleasure in watching me taking revenge on bad people. I hope the drama gives them some fun amid this hard time [of coronavirus].”
