YoonA of Girls’ Generation has opened up about her upcoming role as Cheon Sa Rang in “King the Land”!

“King the Land” will tell the story of Gu Won (2PM’s Lee Junho), a chaebol heir who despises fake smiles, and the constantly smiling Cheon Sa Rang (Girls’ Generation’s YoonA), who becomes known as the “queen of smiles” while working her way up at the King Hotel.

YoonA explained why she chose to star in this highly anticipated upcoming drama: “I normally enjoy romantic comedies, and since my previous work was of the noir genre, I thought it’d be nice to greet viewers with a brighter and more cheerful project next.” I also chose [this drama] because it reminded me of how popular I was when I played proactive characters with bright personalities. The fact that it was set against the backdrop of a hotel VVIP lounge added to its allure.”

Cheon Sa Rang is known as the “queen of smiles,” because she is always smiling. There is, however, a hidden story behind why she can’t help but smile in any given situation, and it is closely related to the King Hotel.

YoonA elaborated on this aspect of her character, saying, “The King Hotel is a place full of childhood memories for Cheon Sa Rang.” When I had to smile or work as a hotelier, I acted with Cheon Sa Rang’s sincere heart and meaning for the King Hotel in mind.”

“Although she has many other sides,” she continued, “Cheon Sa Rang is someone who does her job incredibly well and has both responsibility and a sense of duty, so I worked hard to make sure those aspects were shown well.”

Finally, YoonA selected a key point for viewers to anticipate, stating, “There’s all kinds of fun in ‘King the Land,’ from comedic elements to a sweet romance.” Seeing Cheon Sa Rang discover her true smile, as well as the cute side of the cold Gu Won who transforms after meeting Cheon Sa Rang, will leave an indelible impression. You should also look forward to the visual aesthetics, as we had many location shoots.”

The first episode of “King the Land” will air on June 17 at 10:30 p.m. KST.
