The “Misty” screenwriter Kim Je In may be a rookie, but we’re already excited to watch her next drama. “The murderer has been [this person] the whole time,” she says in a post-“Misty” interview, where she shared stories from behind the scenes of “Misty.” “[He] understood the script better than anyone. [He] figured out the entire flow of [his] character after reading up to the fourth episode.”
“The murderer has been Ji Jin Hee the whole time,” screenwriter Kim Je In said. “He understood the script better than anyone. He figured out the entire flow of his character after reading up to the fourth episode.”
The screenwriter wanted to “talk about the adults’ real love story through ‘Misty.’ ” She says, “I started from the question of what is the feeling of love.” Let’s see what she had in store for her characters Kang Tae Wook (Ji Jin Hee) and Go Hye Ran (Kim Nam Joo).
Kang Tae Wook (Ji Jin Hee):
Kim Je In sounded like she thought it was so obvious that Kang Tae Wook (Ji Jin Hee) was Kevin Lee’s murderer. Tae Wook was her creation after all. But some in the audience had no clue. And she found it fascinating and somewhat unexpected that the audience had such a hard time figuring out the murderer. “Tae Wook has been the murderer since the beginning. I thought I had given a lot of hints. But it was interesting and surprising when the audience kept guessing wrong.”
Go Hye Ran (Kim Nam Joo):
When creating Go Hye Ran (Kim Nam Joo), Kim Je In wanted to give life to “a woman at her peak. I wanted to spotlight the fierce, darker side of a successful woman. So I positioned her as the best anchor,” she explained.
Kim Nam Joo was the number one candidate for the role of Go Hye Ran. “Thankfully, she accepted the offer in a week,” the screenwriter said. Kim Nam Joo’s husband Kim Seung Woo, who is an actor himself, supported her by saying, “This show is made for you,” after reading the “Misty” script.
Earlier this week, Ji Jin Hee has confirmed that he will star in a reality TV show. The actor and producer Yoo Ho Jin of “1 Night 2 Days” are taking the show to the wildlife. Are off-the-grid style reality shows trending in South Korea?
