We reported just yesterday that actress Moon Geun Young was confirmed to be the lead in the upcoming MBC drama, “Goddess of Fire, Jung-yi” Today we can report that actor Lee Sang Yoon will be joining her, playing the role of Prince Gwanghae. The historical figure of Gwanghae was famously played recently by Lee Byung Hun.
In this drama, viewers will see Gwanghae as the prince who became the king of Joseon during a tumultuous period and lives a trouble-filled life. Yet he harbors a strong passion for the person he loves.
Lee Sang Yoon commented, “It has been a long time since I have done a sageuk. I am researching a lot on how to portray Prince Gwanghae. Rather than as a tyrant or a sage, I am preparing to portray Gwanghae as he is so please give us a lot of attention.”
Lee Sang Yoon was last seen as the sweet but strong-willed husband in KBS’ hit weekend drama, “My Daughter, Seoyoung.”
“Goddess of Fire, Jung-yi” will air on MBC after “Gu Family Book” in July.
