In the upcoming new KBS drama series Princess’s Man, written by Jo Jeong Ju and directed by Kim Jeong Min, Hong Soo Hyun plays Princess Gyeong Hye. Princess’s Man, scheduled to air in July, features a story with a new perspective on the children of thsose involved in the Gyeyu-Year Political Revolt, a very important event in the history of Joseon.
The series describes a fateful romance between Kim Seung Yu, played by Park Si Hoo, and Seo Ryeong, played by Moon Chae Won. Tragically, their families are enemies just like the Capulets and the Montagues in Romeo and Juliet.
Born as the oldest daughter to King Mun Jong and Queen Hyeon Deok, Princess Gyeong Hye is known as one of the most beautiful woman in Joseon. She was the apple of her father’s eye, so she has grown up spoiled and arrogant.
The production team speaks very highly of the lead actress: “Hong has various appealing characteristics deep inside her. One day, she looks like a pure, innocent girl and the next, she transforms herself into a sexy snob.”
Hong says, “The princess is an unfortunate woman going through a tumultuous life. I believe that this might be a turning point in my acting career and this character will be recorded as one of the most beautiful roles I’ve played or will play in the future.”
The tragic love story blooming in the middle of the bloody political turmoil will first air on July 20 in the time slot of Romance Town.
