KBS released these teaser stills on December 7 in which Lee Bum Soo and YoonA don martial arts attire and face off in a tense showdown.

YoonA’s outfit is black with white lace elements worked in. She displays some martial arts positions as well.

This scene was filmed at a set in Suwon, Gangwon-do on December 21, and the actors wore wires in order for special effects to be used. Lee Bum Soo and YoonA didn’t spare themselves physically, throwing themselves into filming with swords, daggers and whips. Their showdown is expected to be shown during the first episode.

According to the production team for “Prime Minister and I,” “Lee Bum Soo and YoonA left short but lasting impressions from the first episode with their showdown, showing their fighting spirit by sparing no physical effort while filming these action scenes. ‘Prime Minister and I’ is a romantic comedy that promises to bring great laughter this winter.
