New tvN drama The Three Musketeers is currently gaining a foothold among the audience’s hearts, but one particular “Musketeer,” Yang Dong Geun, is winning attention for his portrayal of Heo Seung Po.

On August 30, a video clip collection of Yang Dong Geun, in character as Heo Seung Po and in his appearances as a producer in the rap-survival show “Show Me the Money 3” was made public. His producer persona in “Show Me the Money” and his delivery of lines as the Joseon warrior Heo Seung Po were edited together, which resulted in a funny clip. You can watch the clip below.

Yang Dong Geun brings a swagger and humor to his portrayal of Heo Seung Po, showing off a screen presence suited to his character and a natural chemistry with the different characters of the cast. In the past episode, fellow Musketeer Ahn Min Seo (Jung Hae In) reveals to Park Dal Hyang (Jung Yong Hwa) Heo Seung Po’s connection to the Crown Prince So Hyun (Lee Jin Wook), explaining his unexpectedly casual, though respectful treatment to, and his closeness with the royal. Heo Seung Po is also revealed to have come from a prestigious family.

Meanwhile, in the coming episode, more will be found out about the resurfacing of Miryoung (Yoo In Young), who was once chosen as the Crown Princess to So Hyun but was thought to have died. Another turning point is Park Dal Hyang’s change of robes, which indicates his change of status, and what it would mean for his mission and relationship with The Three Musketeers.

Before the story tangles and unfolds over the course of three seasons with 12 episodes each, here is a glimpse of Yang Dong Geun as the “Joseon Rapper.”
