Landing her debut lead role in the series “Pyramid Game,” the actor has proven herself to be more than just a K-pop star’s sibling, playing a psychotic antagonist.”[Being Wong-young’s sister] was disclosed when I was first gaining attention. Regardless of my intention, I felt it was something that I could not avoid and accepted it,” the actor said during an interview with The Korea Times at a cafe in Jongno District, Seoul, Thursday.”My dream of acting was so strong and certain, and I came to achieve that dream [with the series]. So I didn’t pay much attention to nor was swayed by any accompanying external factors.”Adopted from the popular webtoon of the same name, Tving’s teen thriller series follows a newly transferred student, Sung Su-ji (Kim Ji-yeon), to Baekyeon Girls’ High School, where the class collectively plays a brutal ranking game called the Pyramid Game, orchestrated by Jang’s character, Baek Ha-rin.

Under the system, the class takes part in a popularity vote every month to rank each student from A to F, allowing those with higher grades to lord over those with F until the next vote. After becoming the target, Sung soon realizes Baek, the class’ “princess,” is the creator and manipulator of the game and goes against Baek to destroy her nice-girl facade as well as the social hierarchy she controls.The 10-part series, which dropped all episodes on March 21, was directed by Park So-yeon, who previously led the 2023 rom-com series “The Heavenly Idol.”Jang shared that this series was a dream come true for her as she has always wanted to portray such a multi-layered character, adding she tried to not get distracted by the buzz about her and her sister.”The moment that I’ve been dreaming of for a long time came true with Baek Ha-rin from ‘Pyramid Game’ … What worried me was whether I would be lacking in portraying my character since this was my debut in acting,” she said. “I wanted to reach the standards I set for myself. So I focused on achieving 카지노사이트킹 those standards rather than putting my mind to other things.”
