Through the bitter fight of its main characters and their desperate attempts to uncover the truth, this drama attempts to find answers to such questions as what is good and what is evil, and how good and bad fortune are formed.

The murder case that begins with an afterimage of one girl is completely ignored and closed quickly because of the girl’s preposterous testimony. Twelve years later, detective Kang Oh-soo (played by Um Tae-woong) receives a taro card meaning “judgment” and a letter.

Jung Ryeo-won to Make Her Period Soap Opera Debut

"I've never expected to be in a period drama in my life," said actress Jung Ryeo-won, 28. She makes her debut in a period drama entitled "Princess Jamyeong," to air on SBS on Mondays and Tuesdays from March 10.

Jung's role requires her to handle a dagger weighing over two kilograms -- no easy task for the slim actress. However, now she has become used to it and even put on two kilograms.

"To help immerse one's self in a period drama, it's important to remain healthy and strong," said Jung.

Some three and a half years after her debut as an actress in MBC soap opera "My Name is Kim Sam Soon," Jung is about to exercise her charms in a drama.

"Princess Jamyeong" based on a traditional Korean tale is about a love shared between three people.

'F4 Special' to Air Due to Koo Injury

The female lead of the popular KBS 2TV's Mon-Tues drama series "Boys over Flowers," Koo Hye-seon, was involved in a car accident on Friday, dealing a blow to the filming schedule.

"Boys" will not be able to air its 17th episode as scheduled on Monday. Koo could not resume shooting on Sunday due to injuries that she sustained.

Instead, an "F4 Special Talk Show" will air Monday and the 17th episode will air Tuesday. The 17th portion was fully shot before Koo's accident.

Production agency Group8 said Sunday, "Koo had three stitches inside her mouth and is in stable condition at a hospital. Based on medical opinions and a prudent decision, we decided to air the special program. As soon as she gets well, Koo will resume shooting next week."

The Monday special program will feature undisclosed drama footage and the "F4" members Lee Min-ho, Kim Hyeon-jung, Kim Beom and Kim Jun will appear as guests. Han Seok-jun and Hyeon Young will host the talk show, with comedian Park Ji-seon filling in for Koo.

Koo was involved in the car accident while returning to Seoul from Changwon, South Gyeongsang province early Friday morning after a shoot. Her lips swelled up, preventing her from participating in filming.

Earlier in the drama in a diving scene, she also injured her head. Other cast members, the three Kims, have also been involved in car accidents.

The drama is gaining increasing popularity.
