“Alice” is a science fiction drama about an emotionless detective (Joo Won) who learns of the existence of time travel while tracking down his mother’s murderer and discovers a woman who looks exactly like his dead mother (Kim Hee Sun ).
Kim Hee Sun plays two roles in the drama: Park Sun Young, Park Jin Kyeom’s mother, and Yoon Tae Yi, a brilliant physicist. She said, “I had some reservations about playing Joo Won’s mother, but I knew how to display maternal affection. The hardest part was playing a brilliant physicist. I had to use physical terms, of course. The lines were tough at first, but I had fun filming. “
When asked about the difference between her characters, she replied, “Park Sun Young led a hard life raising her child on her own. Yoon Tae Yi is a selfish character who has been smart from birth. I think everyone has a selfish side and there are similarities between Park Sun Young’s maternal love and Yoon Tae Yi’s ego sense. “
Joo Won, for whom this is his first project after his military service, said, “I picked the project because it was the most fun, I liked the character and I had a good relationship with the director. I want to show the audience the result as soon as possible. “
Commenting on his character’s innate lack of emotion, he said, “I had to portray a lot of subtle emotions, so the director was very focused on my face. As he ages, Jin Kyeom becomes more flexible, easier to work with, and better understanding emotions thanks to the people around him. I was very focused on the extent to which this character could possibly express emotions. “
Kim Hee Sun and Joo Won both emphasized the action nature of the drama. Kim Hee Sun said, “I’m not at all familiar with action, but when I was watching myself on the monitor it was so cool. I got more ambitious about my scenes.” Joo Won added, “She’s the guy that does doing it well while saying she can’t. “
Joo Won also said, “There are a lot of action scenes. Often there was action in the middle of extremely emotional scenes, so that was difficult. “
Director Baek Soo Chan said, “You’d think it would be difficult to make a science fiction drama, but Alice is really about family and love. The cast and crew all knew that “people” were the focus of this drama. It’s not a complicated or difficult drama. “
“Alice” premieres on August 28th at 10:35 pm KST and will be available on Viki.
