“The Veil” is a new MBC blockbuster action drama starring Namgoong Min as Han Ji Hyuk, an elite field agent who is a NIS (National Intelligence Service) legend. Han Ji Hyuk is a top agent due to his perfect record and skills in completing missions, who is highly valued by his colleagues.
But just as he finally seems to have succeeded in cornering an organized crime syndicate, Han Ji Hyuk suddenly disappears from the face of the earth. After losing his memories and being missing for a year, he courageously returns to the organization to find the traitor responsible for his demise.
Explaining why he’d chosen to star in the drama, Namgoong Min recalled, “Just when I was thinking, ‘I wish there was a drama that really resonated with the audience,’ I happened upon ‘ The Veil ‘. ‘I was fascinated by the harsh, unvarnished and heavy atmosphere that only made up’ The Veil ‘.
Namgoong Min also spoke about the most difficult part of his role. “Han Ji Hyuk is an agent who returns to the NIS after losing his memories,” he said, “and because he has to find the traitor through his lost memories, he is a character who is nervous and nervous for him not so easily can trust everyone. It was not easy to display this keen sensitivity and maintain these emotions throughout [filming]. “
When asked how similar his character was to his personality, Namgoong Min replied, “To be honest, I don’t think we really have anything in common. If I had to make an effort to find a similarity, it would be the way we both chase our goals without giving up. Han Ji Hyuk risks everything to find the traitor in his agency and runs towards this goal, while Namgoong Min risks everything to lose himself in the character of Han Ji Hyuk and to portray him properly as an actor. I have a feeling that we could be similar in this regard. “
“The Veil” premieres on September 17th at 10pm. KST and will be available with subtitles on Viki.
