Actress Kim Sung Ryung who found herself cast in the spotlight last year with her flawless acting and beauty through SBS TV dramas ‘The Chaser’ and ‘Yawang’, has confirmed her participation in upcoming South Korean movie ‘The King’s Wrath’.
‘The King’s Wrath’ revolves a group of people that wants to assassinate King Jeongjo, and another group of people that would willingly die to protect him. Kim Sung Ryung will be playing the role of Lady Hyegyeong in the movie.
Lady Hyegyeong is the wife of the late Crown Prince Sado, and the mother of Jeongjo (Hyun Bin). She goes through great lengths to push Jeongjo to the throne as king while enduring humiliation and threats, and is a strong motherly figure. This marks a return to the period genre for Kim Sung Ryung after a 3 year hiatus following her small role in 2010 movie ‘The Servant’.
At the same time, Kim Sung Ryung will also be filming for television drama ‘The Heirs’ (scheduled for broadcast in the latter half of 2013) and another movie called ‘Point Blank’. With so many productions lined up on her plate, Kim Sung Ryung is likely to become the most searched actress on the big and small screens in the coming months.
With ‘The King’s Wrath’ being Hyun Bin’s first comeback production since his discharge from the army, it will no doubt be a nice push for Kim Sung Ryung to rise to the top even quicker.
