“Fates and Furies” is a Saturday SBS drama about four people whose lives are intertwined in a race that involves love, desire, hate, and revenge. This story will try to overload us and hook us with dramatic scenes, its premiere had a great start for all the acceptance it received from the audience, captivating with very emotional scenes in its first chapters.
The cast of “Fates and Furies” also includes Park Soo Ah as Tae Jung Min, Cha Soo Yun as Goo Hyun Joo, Jung Kyu Soo as Goo Dong Seok, among others. This drama reunites again Joo Sang Wook and Lee Min Jung as co-stars after four years of working together on “Cunning Single Lady”.
Actor Joo Sang Wook said about this: “We met again after being a married couple because time has passed and we are more mature now, I think our performance is deeper and became more mature as well. The genre is completely different, so I think the performance will be very different too“.
Speaking a little about the character, Joo Sang Wook said: “He’s a second-generation chaebol but that doesn’t really have anything. He is someone who tries to find his place while seeking revenge, and finds love after meeting Goo Hae Ra“.
He added: “I like the general tone of the drama, the atmosphere and the emotions that the character of Tae In Joon has. I focus on how much I can express about the character and the role of Tae In Joon was really interesting in this regard“.
Actress Lee Min Jung also expressed her feelings about her role and said why she was attracted to the role. “When I first read the script, it was exactly the kind of traditional drama I wanted to do. I chose the project because it walked the line between melodrama and traditional drama. I wanted to get rid of some of the perceptions I had of myself as a melodrama or romantic comedy actress, but I chose the project because it had the exact general vibration I was looking for“.
He continued: “Goo Hae Ra is the kind of character who takes her destiny into her own hands. When a female character cries, a male character usually appears to help her. This is different. When Goo Hae Ra’s life falls apart, no one helps her. That’s why I’ve worked to be as faithful as possible to the script. There are a lot of scenes where you feel sorry for Goo Hae Ra, and I wanted to act as skillfully as possible“.
“Fates and Furies” is a drama that is within the traditional parameters, I don’t expect to have an innovative story but is to be expected to be a good traditional drama, of course, to be able to give the verdict we will have to wait. What we can do is watch his first episodes.
