Back in 2003, the new project of Than Dieu Dai Hiep was urgently underway. The race to become the next Duong Qua and Tieu Long Nu became extremely fierce, attracting media and audience attention. Among the beauties named for the role of Miss Co, there is an unexpected candidate from Korea.
Who used to be Korean beauties before Liu Yifei?
That actress is the “slut” Jun Ji Hyun. That year, the news that Jun Ji Hyun was considered by the director of The Condor Heroes – Truong Ky Trung caused a stir in the public. In the 2000s, Jun Ji Hyun was one of the top stars of the Korean screen, possessing excellent beauty and acting ability.
Jun Ji Hyun was once a candidate for the role of Tieu Long Nu?
However, director Truong Ky Trung laughed once when asked about Jun Ji Hyun and the role of Tieu Long Nu. Sina had a phone interview with the director in 2003 in which the name Jun Ji Hyun was mentioned. Before the news that Jun Ji Hyun was cast as Tieu Long Nu, Truong Ky Trung was extremely surprised.

He confirmed that he liked Jun Ji Hyun very much, but never considered inviting her to join the Great Heroes of the Condor Heroes. Looking back, he thinks that the reason this news became so popular was because he had set her photo as his desktop wallpaper. Because he loved Jun Ji Hyun so much in My Sassy Girl, Truong Ky Trung put her background image in the movie, and at that time he had an interview at the office. Perhaps the reporter happened to see the picture on his computer and thought he was eyeing Jun Ji Hyun for the role of Tieu Long Nu. And so the news broke.

Truong Ky Trung also affirmed that he focused on finding a famous actor but had to act well. That is what makes the race to become the next Co Co more thrilling, but in the end, Liu Yifei is the winner, surpassing many cult seniors.
