[마이데일리 = 양유진 기자] Actor Namgoong-min revealed that he challenged bulking up for ‘Black Sun’.
On the afternoon of the 16th, MBC’s new Friday-Saturday drama ‘Black Sun’ production presentation was broadcast live online. The event was attended by actors Namgoong-min, Park Ha-sun, Kim Ji-eun and Kim Seong-yong PD.
‘Black Sun’ is the story of the best field agent of the National Intelligence Service, who disappeared a year ago, returning to the organization to find the insider traitor who dropped him into hell. Writer Park Seok-ho’s 2018 MBC Drama Script Contest is the winning work, and PD Kim, who directed ‘Children in Prison’ and ‘My Love Healing’, grabbed the megaphone.
Namgoong-min finds viewers as Han Ji-hyuk, the best agent of the National Intelligence Service, who holds a secret. He said, “I was feeling tired from the trend of stylish dramas in vogue. While I was looking for another format, I saw the script for ‘Black Sun’. It was so heavy. I really wanted to do it. I thought,” he said, explaining why he accepted the script.
In particular, Namgoong-min, who spared no effort in various ways, such as increasing 10 kg to perfectly express the character’s appearance and receiving separate training for action scenes, said, “I thought that Han Ji-hyuk shouldn’t look too far-fetched. I was trying to show that I can’t,” he said.
He also said, “I started exercising last January. I’ve been lifting weights since my early 20s, but I never had to increase my body because of the role.” He said, “I’m very tired. I even had a nightmare. I took off my clothes on set. But it was a dream in which my body was not complete. It’s not perfect, but I did my best so that I don’t have any regrets.”
MBC’s new Friday-Saturday drama ‘Black Sun’, starring Namgoong-min, Park Ha-sun, and Kim Ji-eun, as well as actors Kim Byung-ki, Lee Kyung-young, Jang Young-nam, and Yoo Oh-seong, will be broadcasted for the first time at 10 pm on the 17th.
