Choi Jin Hyuk To Star Opposite Jang Nara In Upcoming SBS Thriller
“The Last Empress” is a new SBS thriller set in an alternate universe in which a constitutional monarchy exists in 2018. The drama will tell the story of Oh Sunny (played by Jang Nara), a bubbly musical actress who suddenly becomes a modern-day Cinderella when she marries the emperor. After a royal murder shakes things up at the palace, Oh Sunny ends up searching for true love and happiness by bringing down the imperial family.
Choi Jin Hyuk will be appearing in the drama as the male lead Na Wang Sik, a mysterious palace bodyguard whose fighting skills are unrivaled. He eventually winds up joining forces with Oh Sunny in order to exact revenge on the royal family.
According to Choi Jin Hyuk’s agency G-Tree Creative, the character has remained shrouded in mystery for good reason. A representative of the agency commented, “[The drama’s producers] have not yet released any detailed information to the public about Choi Jin Hyuk’s character Na Wang Sik. A full introduction to the character could spoil the drama’s plot, so we are exercising caution.”
“However,” the representative continued, “Na Wang Sik will stand at the center of the drama’s conflict as he fights the imperial family’s autocratic power together with the female protagonist Oh Sunny. We think that you can safely look forward to [Choi Jin Hyuk]’s image transformation as the drama’s male lead.”
“The Last Empress” is currently scheduled to premiere in November.
