Following the news that Moon Chae Won will be the titular “princess” in the upcoming KBS sageuk, The Princess’s Man, her man has now been chosen (all but confirmed), and it is none other than actor Park Shi Hoo (Queen of Reversals). I’m not going to lie. Screw whether he can act in a sageuk… I’m excited to see Park Shi Hoo dressed in a hanbok again since his 2008 role in Iljimae, and the two pretties (Park Shi Hoo and Moon Chae Won) make out… I mean, develop great chemistry with each other.
The Princess’s Man is a fusion sageuk, and described as a Joseon-era “Romeo and Juliet.” Park Shi Hoo will play Kim Jong Seo’s son, Kim Seung Yoo, who gets involved in a star-crossed love with Moon Chae Won’s Princess Lee Se Ryung character. Unfortunately, Princess Lee Se Ryung is also the daughter of his family’s enemy, King Sejo (better known as Grand Prince Suyang).
Directed by Kim Jung Min (Drama Special: Family Secrets, Loving You a Thousand Times, Hometown Legends, Cannot Hate You, Barefoot Love) and written by Jo Jung Joo (Partner), The Princess’s Man is scheduled to air in July following Romance Town.
