Actress Goo Hye-sun, who played Geum Jan-di in a hit drama, “Boys over Flowers,” is enjoying brisk sales of her first novel, “Tango.” First published on April 1st, Koo’s debut fiction has already sold 30 thousand copies and gone into seventh printing. This is an amazing sales record, given that it’s her first novel.
“Tango” is an illustrated fiction that features a woman in her 20s, who grows emotionally by falling in love and breaking up. Book critics and readers commented that Goo’s realistic description of the girl’s psychological and emotional upheavals made the characters easy to identify with. The actress reportedly worked very hard on the novel, asking first for her laptop, which contained the manuscript, even when she was in a car accident.
