Ku Hye-sun eyes angelic role
In the drama, Ku plays Yoon Soo-wan, a legally blind woman who gets her vision back in an operation and decides to embrace life with passion by becoming an emergency rescue worker. Yoon is described as a tomboyish character who still fondly remembers her first love from 12 years ago.
The role will be the first TV drama for the 29-year-old actress in two years, ever since SBS’s “Take Care of Us, Captain.”
The new role reunites Ku with Yoon Ji-ryun, the writer of “Boys Over Flowers,” a 2009 series that launched Ku’s rise to stardom.
“Since I am an emergency rescuer in the drama, I will try to be as well prepared and trained as possible to be convincing,” said Ku.
“I am happy to work with Yoon Ji-ryun again since I had such a good time with ‘Boys Over Flowers.’ I have faith in her.”
“Angel Eyes” will air in April.
