Yuri Details Her Role in "Bossam Stealing Fate"
In a recent report, SNSD's Yuri spoke about her experiences filming the drama for MBN's 10th-anniversary special.
The singer-actress revealed why she opted to audition for the role which is said to be her first historical series.
"I was captivated as she (the character) grew from and through unexpected events," she explained.
Being Princess Soo Kyung, Kwon Yuri described her character as the one "who paves her own way through a series of incidents" despite facing "adversity" and "point of inflection in her life."
As seen on "Bossam Stealing Fate" teaser, the Girls' Generation member's character breaks away from a typical royal who is prim and proper but instead, she engages herself in archery.
This is because Princess Soo Kyung was molded "to become more liberated" to be able to protect herself.
During the interview, the "C'est La Vie (That's LIFE!)" songstress thanked their director Kwon Seok Jang, for guiding her through his "delicate directions."
Moreover, the "Breakup Probation, A Week" star also shared that she's excited to work with the director that she's comfortable with.
"We've been having enjoyable and interesting conversations since the first meeting until now," she added.
