Actress Shin Min-a has transformed into an overweight lawyer for her new TV series.
Shin plays the female lead in "Oh My Venus" scheduled to air on KBS. Her character suffers a dramatic change from a stunning-looking girl envied by everyone to a fat woman in her 30s.
Cuts of Shin dressed up in special makeup and a fat suit were released.
She has to endure a three-hour makeup session every time before shooting to get into the character. A silicon mask pre-made from a mold of her face is carefully attached, and the rest of her outfit is added for a plump look.
Shin said, "This is the first time I have done such special makeup work, so it is a series of new and exciting experiences. It's harder than I thought, but I'm still enjoying it so much as lots of staff members are working hard and encouraging me."
"Oh My Venus" is a romantic comedy between a woman who tries hard to recover her beauty played by Shin and a fitness trainer played by So Ji-sub.
The first episode will be aired on Monday next week.
