On October 8th, the producers of SBS‘s upcoming historical drama, ‘Jang Ok Jung, Live for Love‘, have confirmed that actress Kim Tae Hee has been cast as the lead role of ‘Jang Hee Bin‘.

The story of Jang Hee Bin has been remade into countless movies and dramas over the years, all played by only the top stars of the industry. This drama makes Kim Tae Hee the ninth version of the character.

Producers stated, “‘Jang Ok Jung, Live for Love’ has reinterpreted Jang Hee Bin with a focus on her role as the lady-in-waiting to Queen Dowager Jangnyeol. In modern times, we would compare her role to that of a fashion designer. As Jang Hee Bin is already a character well known to the public through countless interpretations in different movies and dramas, we decided to look at her from a different angle. There will be a fresh change to the story.”

Other characters like ‘Sukjong’ and ‘Queen Inhyun’ will be given the same change in interpretation. Casting is still ongoing for the two characters.

Since her experience with the movie ‘The Restless‘, this is actually Kim Tae Hee’s first attempt at a historical drama. Fans will be happy to see her return to the smallscreen for the first time in two years since her 2011 drama, ‘My Princess‘.

The historical drama is slated to begin airing next March.

Although I don't understand the premise of Jang Ok Jung being a fashion designer in the Joseon era, the drama does sound quite interesting. I hope Kim Tae Hee will deliver a great performance!

Kim Tae-hee the 9th Jang Hee-bin



Kim Tae-hee the 9th Jang Hee-bin.

Actress Kim Tae-hee is attempting at a historical as Jang Hee-bin.

SBS revealed that Kim has been cast in the new upcoming drama "Jang Ok-jeong Lives in Love".

Kim Tae-hee will take on the role of a Chosun designer which is a redefinition of Jang Hee-bin.

Kim Tae-hee has been in the historical movie "The Restless" but this is her first time in a historical drama.

Netizen's say, "Will she look good in a Hanbok?", "I can't wait, she's the best visual so far out of all Jang Hee-bin's" and more.

Meanwhile, so far Kim Ji-min-I, Yon Yeo-jeong, Lee Mi-sookJeon In-hwa and others have all been Jang Hee-bin before.

I can't wait to see this, although historically her character seem to be an evil one. But from another perspective she is just a girl trying to survive in the palace, I think she really love the king also. The king also loved her otherwise he wouldn't have waited for her and took her back. I am interested in seeing the fashion part of this too.

Hello everyone,

I know that KTH can do this drama with flying colors. I've watched a lot kdramas and I found her acting awesome compaired to some actresses whose acting were not even half of KTH. That it bore me to death that just made me stop watching. KTH acting is not OA [over] and not lacking as well. In STH, LSIH, IRIS, and MP, she was very natural. I just don't understand why her acting is always in question. I can't avoid thingking that maybe because they can't find any other flaws with her, and/or  we just have our own prefernece/s that makes us very subjective with how we see the world, which is understandable. So GOODLUCK KTH... we fully support you.

Kim Tae-hee tackles sageuk as famous villain


Kim Tae-hee has her next drama lined up, and she’s getting ambitious: It’s a sageuk for SBS, and it’s all about the life of a famous (notorious, rather) femme fatale in history who has been oft-portrayed in dramas before. The title is Jang Ok-jung, Living By Love, where Jang Ok-jung is the given name of the woman who would become concubine Jangheebin.

That name may sound familiar; she was the villain of Dong Yi (played by Lee So-yeon) andQueen In-hyun’s Man, among other projects, as the woman behind the deposition of Sukjong’s wife Queen In-hyun, allowing her to ascend to the throne. She was herself demoted when the former queen was restored to her position and is popularly believed to have then poisoned In-hyun. She was reportedly found by the king to be plotting more crimes, and executed via poison.

Since Jang heebin is the protagonist of this drama, the story will be a “reinterpretation” of the character with “a modern sensibility.” So while this is a sageuk production in the strict sense of the word, I’m thinking it’ll be a far cry from a conventional historical drama. This Jang Ok-jung character starts out in the palace as a court lady, becomes a “Joseon fashion designer,” and also makes cosmetics. So… less killing, more prettifying?

I’m all for well-known stories being reimagined, so as far as the plot goes I’m all onboard. I do worry a bit for Kim Tae-hee, who hasn’t done sageuk before, unless this can somehow channel the light-hearted frivolity of her My Princess character; she was so charming as feisty, bubbly Seol. That may be the ideal way to set this project apart (some of the actresses to have played the role include Kim Jimi, Yoon Yeo-jung, Lee Mi-sook, Jeon In-hwa, and Kim Hye-soo), and the production reports that the other characters of Sukjong and In-hyun will also be reimagined.

Still, Jang heebin is so famously… evil… that I wonder at how they can turn her into a proper heroine. ‘Cause at some point, you’ve got to explore the whole queen-deposition-and-poisoning bit, yeah?

In any case, color me intrigued. Jang Ok-jung is being planned as a 24-episode drama and will air in March 2013.
