Lee Sung Kyung opens up about playing Park Shin Hye's frenemy in Doctor Crush
We all loved to hate Lee Sung Kyung's bratty but endearing character in her last drama Cheese in the Trap, and now she's back again as a conflictual second female lead in her new drama Doctor Crush. This time around, she'll be playing the romantic and intellectual rival of Park Shin Hye, Jin Seo Woo. Here's what she has to say about her new role.
In Doctor Crush, Lee Sung Kyung plays Jin Seo Woo, a beautiful and intelligent girl who has it all. She is used to being the star of the show, so when Park Shin Hye shows up at her high school, she can't handle losing to her. She vies for their biology teacher Kim Rae Won's attention, but he pays more attention to Park Shin Hye's character. Later, the two girls are reunited as rivals at the same hospital once again, where she decides to win no matter what this time.
The actress recently said this about her character:
“After growing up with constant love and attention, Jin Seo Woo changes when she meets Yoo Hye Jung (Park Shin Hye) and develops an inferiority complex and faces other challenges. She does not respond to those new feelings through reckless and purely villainous means. I want to show a character who slowly matures while overcoming pain and misery. They also grow as people through their competition, so you can expect a womance to develop between them. Jin Seo Woo may have a professional career as a doctor, but I will do my best to show the different sides of her and convey her cool and charismatic appeal.”
Sounds like although they are rivals, we can expect to see a fun womance develop between the two female leads!
