As I watch"Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People", I also found woman who stole the heart of the king and the viewers! Hong Gil-dong story is a famous history and have been made into dramas and movies many times and in this latest version, we discovered the perfect actress for the Royal Consort Suk-yong.
Personally, I thinkLee Honeyis very interesting. What I already knew aboutLee Honeyis that 1. She is in an official relationship withYoon Kye-sangfor a few years now, and 2. She is a former Miss Korea, who won the 4thplace in Miss Universe competition in 2007. It was a big issue back then because it is a very rare incident for Miss Korea to have a good standing in Miss Universe competition. She is famous for her oriental beauty combined with glamourous, yet fit body. Many of her fans say her most attractive point is her dimples though.
Anyways, the reason why I say she is perfect for the role is because of her major. She's a graduate from Seoul National University with Korean Classical Music major. Many of her family members are talented in traditional music, especially her mom, who's an Intangible Cultural Asset.Lee Honeyis able to perform Korea's traditional songs by singing, dancing and playing the instruments. She's exceptionally talented in Gayageum, the traditional Korean zither-like string instrument.
Her exceptional talent in traditional music aside, she is great with even the modern dancing and singing. She was once a trainee at YG entertainment, and could have been a member of a famous K-pop girl group,2NE1. She mentioned in a talk show that going on a Miss Korea competition changed that fate.
Lee Honeyhave met her perfect character. She have all of three quality for the Royal Consort Suk-yong: The ability to perform Korean traditional music, her beautiful oriental look and the acting skill to support. While watching her sing and play, we can't help it but to have our heart stolen by this beauty.
