The hallyu star, Song Hye Kyo, is still in the awe of her character as Dr Kang Mo Yeon, which she portrayed in the hit series, Descendants of the Sun. The 34-year-old, who has been receiving a lot of appreciation for her role as a strong-headed women in the show, revealed that the role was not developed in her first script reading.
During an interview with W Korea, when asked to elaborate her character, the pretty actress stated: "When I first received the script, the character hadn't been as developed yet. The writer and I went out drinking a few times, where she changed the character positively for me. When you're drunk, you get a little braver, so I think I demanded more from her. I think she enjoyed seeing that from me."
The award-winning-actress also affirmed that the depth, firmness and straight forwardness in her character made Dr Mo Yeon more popular among female fans. Hye Kyo said: "Females usually like me better. During the drama was when I learned about the term 'Cider' (Someone who speaks their mind, straightforward, like the refreshing taste of cider), and I liked that the female character had such a clear voice of her own instead of being dragged along by the male character."
She added: " Even some female characters like that can become passive when they're in love, but Mo Yeon was always certain about her worth and her style. It took a long time for her to realistically accept the fear surrounding the other person's situation and background, and so she did end up being scolded by some viewers who fell for Yoo Si Jin right away (laughter)."
"I thought that how she was strongly inclined to her work, how she was realistic, and how she loved but didn't fall prey to love were the attractive parts of her. There were a few unlikable things here and there, of course (laughter)," the actress stated giving a deep insight into her role.
