The actress has actively promoted the drama, participating in various shows and events to build anticipation for the series, as the success of “Maestra: Strings of Truth” is deemed crucial for her name’s recognition.
Lee Young-ae’s previous drama “Inspector Koo” marked a daring challenge for her, where she transformed into the quirky detective Koo Kyung-yi, deviating from her elegant image.
