Cast stills from sageuk romance Princess’s Man
“Sageuk Romeo & Juliet” is the in-a-nutshell description of Princess’s Man
, the upcoming KBS drama that stars Park Shi-hoo
(Queen of Reversals
) and Moon Chae-won
(It’s Okay, Daddy’s Girl
) as Joseon-era star-crossed lovers.
The setup for their doomed romance: ambition over the throne, natch.
It’s pretty much the basis of 99% of sageuk dramas, and for good reason,
since it provides the perfect foundation for an epic story with all its
attendant power grabs, secret plots, assassination attempts, and
political intrigue. Moon plays Princess Se-ryung, whose father, Grand
Prince Su-yang (played by Kim Young-chul
, the shady Baek San of IRIS
), covets the crown. (Historically, he eventually got it and became King Sejo.)
The ambitious Su-yang meets with fierce opposition from his enemy,
the high-ranking minster of the left, Kim Jong-seo (played by Lee Soon-jae
), whose youngest son Seung-yoo (that’s Park Shi-hoo) falls in love with the princess.
