A Lunar New Year special variety program featuring an idol sageuk (historic) comedy is currently in the works.
KBS has revealed that the program will be called, “The Crown Princess Project – Restoring The Royal Family” and will air as a Lunar New Year special. “The Crown Princess Project” is being called the idol version of “The Moon Embracing The Sun” and will be in a sageuk format with a comedic twist.
Many female idol stars have been cast for this special program since it will be based on a story of how a crown princess is chosen through a series of tests given by the royal family in the Choseon era.
Some of the female idols that will star in this program include IU, T-ara’s Boram and Soyeon, miss A’s Min, 4minute’s Sohyun and more. It is said that a total of 12 female idols will appear in this program. The production staff revealed that the program will be filmed outdoors. They are hoping that the female idols will be lively and energetic since they won’t be in a stuffy studio all day. The production staff are also expecting a lot of interest because the female idols will be wearing beautiful hanbok (traditional Korean clothing) dresses.
The role of the crown prince, whom all the female idols will be going after, is not yet decided. The staff said that not even the female idols know who it is right now and they will find out during the actual filming.
