On August 10th 2016, the press conference for tvN‘s upcoming drama “Cinderella and Four Knights” was held. Actor Ahn Jae Hyun discussed about the drama’s similarities to “Boys Over Flowers” in which his wife, Ku Hye Sun, starred in.
He says, “It feels a bit like ‘Boys Over Flowers.’ The relationship between the characters are comparable; it’s about a harem of men surrounding the female protagonist. Due to the resemblance, I talked to Ku Hye Sun a lot about what my role should be like in the drama. For example, if Jung Il Woo plays a cold character that is stilly always there for the female lead; we also talked a lot about how I would need to portray my character well on screen.”
The actor adds, “I participated in the drama after accomplishing what I wanted the most in life which was to get married. Of course, she was very considerate and understanding. But more than that, I was able to act comfortably. I am so thankful to Ku Hye Sun.”
“Cinderella and the Four Knights” is an adaptation from a novel that was published in 2011 with the same title. The drama is about a high school student named Eun Ha-won (played by Park So Dam) who dreams of becoming a veterinarian, but struggles to earn money for her education. She ends up living in a mansion called Sky House with three third generation chaebol cousins under some circumstances. Kang Hyun-min (played by Ahn Jae Hyun) is a playboy tycoon who lives by no rules and Kang Ji–woon (played by Jung Il Woo) is a kind-hearted, but reclusive rebel who was raised in status to become a member of the royal family in Sky House. The third cousin, Kang Seo–woo (played by Lee Jung Shin), is a top singer and songwriter who is considerate and compassionate towards Ha-won.
“Cinderella and the Four Knights” is to be aired on August 12th, 2016 at 23:00 KST on tvN.
