We all know Gaksital was preempted for 24 episodes which were then increased to 28! Thank GOD! I love that there’s still ten episodes more to go! Since there was the 4 episode extension, the producer decided to add a fresh character to the cast. They picked 27-year-old actress Jung Eun Byul who will play an elite agent of the independence movement. Her character, Jin Hong, born as the daughter of famous family who support independence movement against Japanese imperialism. She excels in martial arts, shooting and even piloting war-planes. She’s also fluent in English, Russian and Chinese languages.
She’s plotted to make a chilling confrontation with Ueno Rie (the Japanese spy). Both are beautiful with a badass fighting spirit. And that will be a fight totally worth watching!
It’s a smart move by the producer. A new fresh face will add dynamic to the previous conflict between Lee Kang To, Kimura Shunji , Mok Dan and Ueno Rie. Personally, I’d love to see Rie’s equivalent badass on the good guys side!
Jung Eun Byul’s previous dramas were short drama The First Marriage (2010) and then she played evil girl in KBS2 drama The Thorn Birds.
Jung Eun Byul’s role in Gaksital starts in the 21st episode.
