"Chimera" follows the mysterious serial bombings that started again after its 35 years of dormancy. Criminal profiler Eugene Hathaway (Claudia Kim), violent crimes detective Cha Jae Hwan (Park Hae Soo) and medical surgeon Lee Joong Yeop (Lee Hee Joon) work together to pursue the truth behind the "Chimera," with their underlying motives up in their sleeves.

Claudia Kim shared that filming the on-going drama was emotionally taxing. She said, "The atmosphere of the filming site is fierce because of the nature of the drama."

Because of her immense talent and distinct qualities, Claudia Kim broadened her horizons and entered Hollywood early and appeared in various films such as "Avengers: Age of Ultron," "The Dark Tower" and "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

When she was asked about the recent trend of the entertainment industry, she shared, "I realized that many foreign people are interested in South Korean content when I was filming my drama "Marco Polo." I didn't think it would become a culture that people in every part of the world would love."

The actress came back to South Korea after being offered the role of Eugene Hathaway. Moreover, "Chimera" episode 9 is slated to air on Saturday, November 27 at 10:30 p.m. KST on OCN.
