F(x) member Krystal will be working with an investigation team in the new KBS drama Police University. The mini-series will focus on a complicated case that captures the attention of a former detective and a university professor. He will work on that case with a group of University Students, and the show will follow them as they focus on their jobs.
For Krystal, Oh Kang Hee is a character who will help her return to her youthful self. Kang Hee will also help her to get a clear picture of two contrasting sides of a person. She said her character is different from her, and it is one thing that attracted her to this project.
"She is confident and straightforward. Although she appears tough on the outside, she can be fragile when it comes to someone she likes or the family she loves. I am acting while thinking about how to express to viewers those two contrasting sides of her. My job and dreams are different from Oh Kang Hee, but I think we share the sense of wanting to be more just," she added.
