They will be starring in JTBC‘s upcoming drama “Mirror of the Witch,” which is a fantasy story about a cursed princess named Seo Ri and a vengeful Heo Jun. Heo Jun has never been portrayed this way before in other dramas, so many are curious of how this will turn out.
After being discharged from the military, Yoon Shi Yoon will be starring in his first-ever historical drama. His character Heo Jun is very smart and skilled, but is looked down upon because he is the child of a concubine. So he hides his identity and lives by helping others in need.
Kim Sae Ron’s character Seo Ri is a hidden twin from the king and queen. Her original name is Yeon Hee but she gets cursed and turns into a witch, therefore also changing her name.
Yoon Shi Yoon stated, “I was lured by ‘Mirror of the Witch’ because of its unique story. I think it will be a meaningful project since I haven’t tried a historical drama yet and it’s been a while since I’ve acted. I’m already looking forward to filming. I will try my best to show different charms of Heo Jun that he has never shown thus far. Please give lots of support.”
Kim Sae Ron also said, “I was pulled in by the drama’s strange charms. Seo Ri is born a princess but is a cursed witch at the same time. It overwhelmed me at first to take this role because it seemed like such a good chance in my acting career, but that’s why I am very excited. I will practice hard to please the audience through this well-produced work. Please keep watching.”
Meanwhile, this new drama will air in May.
