Cha Eun Woo Confirmed To Join Shin Se Kyung In Upcoming Historical Drama
ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo has chosen his next drama!
On March 4, Fantagio Entertainment announced that Cha Eun Woo has confirmed his appearance in MBC’s upcoming drama “Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung” (literal title).
“Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung” is a fictional historical drama that tells the story of women in the 19th century who were frowned upon for writing historical records. The drama will fight against outdated prejudice on the basis of gender and social status and show the value of change. It was previously confirmed that Shin Se Kyung will take on the female lead role in the drama.
In the drama, Cha Eun Woo will take on the role of Prince Yi Rim. While second in line to the throne, the prince lives a double life as a lonely prince who has never dated anyone and a popular romance novelist who has the city of Hanyang in the palm of his hands. While juggling both worlds, he meets the intern historian Goo Hae Ryung (played by Shin Se Kyung) and learns of love and the world outside the palace.
With the upcoming drama, Cha Eun Woo will be taking on his first-ever lead role in a major network’s drama. Through his agency, Cha Eun Woo said, “The script was very intriguing, and I found the topic of female historians refreshing. Most of all, the character ‘Yi Rim’ made my heart flutter. I would like to portray the growth of Yi Rim who was born to have a lonely destiny and is clumsy at everything he does.”
He concluded, “I will try my best to show improvement. I ask for your continued interest [in the drama].”
“Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung” is scheduled to premiere sometime in July 2019.
