“Faith” Lee Philip’s fan dance
Actor Lee Philip shows elegant but a quick fan dance.
According to SBS on the 26th, Lee Philip does the ‘fan action’ in the new SBS drama “Faith”.
Lee Philip takes on the role of a physician named Jang Bin. He is attacked at the start of the drama and fights for Princess No-guk (Par Se-yeong) with his outstanding marrial art skills.
Jang Bin’s weapon is his fan. He uses the fan to defeat his opponents while he is well practiced in blood and epidemic fever.
Lee said, “I have to stop a huge sword with this fan but it’s not easy so it’s been ripped and I’ve been bruised. I don’t think a fan is a good weapon.
About Jang Bin he said, “He is a realistic character who thinks fighting is childish but he is also equipped with many other appeals”.
Meanwhile, “Faith” is a mellow fantasy drama about the love between a warrior (Lee Min-ho) and a modern day (Kim Hee-seon) in the process of making King Gong-min (Ryoo Deok-hwan) a real king. The intense story line is to be made up of unique martial arts like never seen before. To be aired for the first time on the 13th of August.
