In the teaser stills revealed today, May 7, by producers of “Jang Ok Jung, Live in Love,” readers can see the romance starting to steam up between Yoo Ah In and Kim Tae Hee. In the first photo, Yoo Ah in, as Lee Soon or King Sukjong, is lying on top of Kim Tae Hee, who plays Jang Ok Jung. Jang Ok Jung is an actual historical figure who was King Sukjong’s concubine. Through the second photo, we can see that Lee Soon and Jang Ok Jung have spent their first night together in the culmination of their secret palace romance.
In episode nine, Jang Ok Jung was thrown out of the palace when Lee Soon fainted after he saved her from danger. But after their first night together, viewers can now expect to see Jang Ok Jung rise to the formal status of King Sukjong’s concubine and a transformation of her character to a villain who expelled Queen In Hyun from the palace, as real history tells it.
“Jang Ok Jung” airs Monday and Tuesday nights on SBS.
