King The Land is a strange title, but if you can look past it, you’ll find a fun rom-com and a gem of an actress in Lim Yoona.
Lim Yoona’s music, modelling, and acting career
But first, a quick background on Yoona’s rise to stardom. It started when she became a member of the second generation K-pop group Girls’ Generation in 2007. She became the lead dancer, supporting rapper and vocalist, and centre of the group. Beyond the K-pop world, her fans gave her the nickname “CF Queen” which stands for commercial films in Korea (AKA TV ads). She also landed ambassadorship deals with brands like innisfree, Estée Lauder, and Miu Miu.
When it comes to acting, Yoona is known for her roles in dramas such as the thriller Big Mouth alongside Lee Jong-suk and the action drama The K2 alongside Ji Chang-wook. She was also one of the cast members of the action comedy Confidential Assignment film franchise which stars Hyun Bin, Daniel Henney, and more.
So now, let’s dive into her most recent work King The Land. We’ll be taking you through the drama’s cast, plot, and Yoona’s best moments so far on the show.
King The Land: trailer, cast, plot, and more
King The Land offers a lighthearted workplace rom-com filled with tropes like opposite characters being attracted to each other, a rich male lead and a poor yet hardworking female lead, and more. Junho plays the role of Director Gu-won, the son and heir of The King Group, which owns hotels, an airline, and more. Meanwhile, Yoona plays the character of Cheon Sa-rang, who landed a job at the King Hotel where she faces difficult co-workers, prejudice against her background, and more.
Yoona shines in this drama, so we’ve rounded up her best moments so far. Warning: spoilers ahead!
Yoona’s best moments in her new drama King The Land
1. When Yoona’s character was doing business at work (and we don’t mean the official kind)
2. When she boldly tells Gu-won not to order her around
In this scene, we got to see another side of Cheon Sa-rang instead of just being the bright and smiley hotel worker. She lets loose and opens up a little about herself to Gu-won.
3. When she calmly turns down a dinner date with Gu-won
So while Gu-won is already head over heels for her, it seems that she won’t make life easy for him. We can’t wait to see what happens next!
