Ending A Seven-Year Drama Break With A Love Triangle

Ending A Seven-Year Drama Break With A Love Triangle

What better way to end a seven-year break from drama roles than in a love triangle with Seo In Guk and Lee Soo Hyuk?

That"s what actress Lee Ha Na decided to do when she took a role in "High School King of Savvy." The actress who was once called a "romantic comedy queen" became popular about 10 years ago when she appeared in the SBS drama "Alone in Love." The series won praise for its portrayal of love, marriage and divorce. The two main characters fell in love, married, and despite wanting to divorce kept returning to each other. Lee Ha Na played the quirky Yoo Ji Ho, a character that spent her time reunite her sister and ex-brother-in-law.

She followed that role with more comedies, "Merry Mary" in 2007" and "Triple" in 2009, but then she decided to avoid small screen productions, starring instead in two films "The Fair Love" and "R2B: Return To Base."

At the press conference for the drama, the actress said that she avoided drama roles because she could not bridge the gap between the characters viewers expected her to play and her real personality.

"This was really stressful," she said.

But something about "High School King of Savvy" was so appealing that she reconsidered her drama career.

"I have been offered several roles during my break, but none of them grabbed my attention," she said. "While I was searching for suitable role, I came across "High School King," and I decided to join this drama because I thought I would regret it if I missed this opportunity."

In the drama she plays Soo Young, a temporary office worker who gets involved in a romance with the character played singer-actor Seo In Guk, who was last seen in "The Master"s Sun." His character is only pretending to be a company executive. She thinks that they are the same age but he"s really a high school student and ice hockey player.

The other member of the love triangle is the executive Jin Woo, played by model-turned actor Lee Soo Hyuk.

Lee is happy to be back on a drama set.

"The break was a lonely time and I could overcome it by composing music," she said. During her drama break Lee focused on playing the guitar and singing, appearing on television several times. In 2008 she hosted the KBS TV"s live music show, "Lee Ha Na"s Peppermint."

The first episode of "High School King of Savvy" aired this week. According to tvN the comedy aced the ratings with 1.5 percent of the audience.
