Jang Dong Yoon Transformed For His Role In ‘Tale of Nokdu’ And He’s Almost Unrecognizable

They say he’s the perfect fit for the role now!

Actor Jang Dong Yoon is the male lead alongside Kim So Hyun in new drama Tale of Nokdu. The drama is a light, romantic comedy set in the Joseon era, and is the story of Jeon Nok Du (played by Jang Dong Yoon) who disguises himself as a woman in order to enter a mysterious all-woman community, and Dong Dong Joo (Kim So Hyun), a gisaeng-in-training who wants to be anything but a gisaeng (courtesan).


For his role in the drama, Jang Dong Yoon, who plays a cross-dresser, dedicated himself to the role by growing his hair and going on a severe diet to be able to pass as a woman in hanbok…and the results were amazing!

Netizens compared his old photos and appearances on dramas to his current drama, and expressed their awe at his upgraded visuals achieved through pure hard-work and determination!
