"I've never expected to be in a period drama in my life," said actress Jung Ryeo-won, 28. She makes her debut in a period drama entitled "Princess Jamyeong," to air on SBS on Mondays and Tuesdays from March 10.
Jung's role requires her to handle a dagger weighing over two kilograms -- no easy task for the slim actress. However, now she has become used to it and even put on two kilograms.
"To help immerse one's self in a period drama, it's important to remain healthy and strong," said Jung.
Some three and a half years after her debut as an actress in MBC soap opera "My Name is Kim Sam Soon," Jung is about to exercise her charms in a drama.
"Princess Jamyeong" based on a traditional Korean tale is about a love shared between three people.
