Actress Kang Sora finally can break away from her past role as Ha Chun Hwa in ‘Sunny’ and she can breathe a sigh of relief now after she managed to capture audience’s heart through the diverse characters that she portrayed. Perhaps it can be said that the biggest role that she played so far is her character in SBS drama ‘Doctor Stranger’ after all.
In her recent drama ‘Doctor Stranger’ Kang Sora appeared as a strong-minded doctor named Oh Soo Hyun. While working together with two attractive men Park Hae Jin (Han Jae Joon role) and Lee Jong Suk (Park Hoon role), she’s able to show a sweet romance with both men as well as doctor’s charisma at the same time.
In the past episode on July 1st, Soo Hyun found out the real identity of Jae Joon and she then discovered the fact that she is the princess in the castle who Jae Joon has been using in order to fulfill his revenge plan. Soo Hyun initially went looking for Park Hoon but in return she was in shock to hear from Park Hoon that Han Jae Joon is likely to be the person named Lee Sung Hoon; the son of a medical malpractice’s victim from the incident that happened 20 years ago. Much worse, Han Jae Joon still retains strong hostility towards her father Oh Joon Gyu (played by Jeon Guk Hwan).
Although Oh Joon Gyu is a cold-blooded man by nature, Soo Hyun still managed to soften her father’s heart. And even though she’s quite a callous and cool-headed doctor, she’s still a lovely and warm-hearted daughter towards her father. Moreover, Soo Hyun is passionate and genuine more than anyone else when it comes to matters of the heart.
Her romance with Park Hae Jin in the drama, though it is a relationship that bound together by a deliberate approach, she’s able to make it sweet. Kang Sora also managed to convey the fluttering feeling when she couldn’t hide how she feels towards Lee Jong Suk in the drama.
Based on accumulated acting experiences that she gained from her previous works, no matter what role given to her, Kang Sora would assimilate them according to her own acting style. She displayed a remarkably mature and in-depth acting particularly in this drama. Viewers regardless of age and sex have huge interest on her.
Kang Sora who debuted in 2009 through movie ‘4th Period Mystery’ has appeared in a few movies like ‘Sunny’ & ‘My Paparotti’ and became the rising star in Chungmuro. She then went on to star in several dramas like ‘Dr. Champ’, ‘The Women Of Our Home’, ‘Dream High 2’ and her casting in daily drama ‘Ugly Alert’ became a hot topic.
Playing the role of a daughter to the president of a leading fashion company who worked her way up to make her own fortune rather than just receiving support from her family in the drama ‘Ugly Alert’, Kang Sora showed the charm of a tough woman with principle. Through the drama, she managed to be deeply engraved into the mind of major audience of daily drama which are mainly housewives and thus adored by them.
After ‘Doctor Stranger’ ended, Kang Sora is expected to be even busier with ‘Misaeng’ a.k.a Incomplete Life); the sequel of the most influential drama produced by cable channel TVN. Adapted from a webtoon, ‘Misaeng’ unfolds a story about a young man who has been dedicated his life to be a pro baduk player and he was thrown into the harsh reality of life after failing miserably at it.
