The movie’s production company Jupiter Film announced in a press release on September 14 that the film has had its first shoot on September 9. They specifically picked the date as the fortunes of the two actors matched up for that particular date.
The historical piece will be about a princess, played by Shim Eun Kyung, who leaves the palace to find her true love. Lee Seung Gi will play a scholar who specializes in fortunetelling compatibility between possible marriage prospects.
Lee Seung Gi commented on his upcoming movie, “This is my first historical movie. I was immediately drawn to the character when I started reading the script.” Shim Eun Kyung also commented, “I was captivated by the female character who leaves the palace to pave her own destiny. I will try my best to show a great performance.”
The film is slated for a late 2016 release.
