Shin Hye Sun In Talks To Lead New tvN Historical Fusion Drama
Shin Hye Sun is in talks to star in a new tvN drama!
On March 17, News1 reported that Shin Hye Sun had received the offer to star as the female lead for the upcoming tvN drama “Queen Cheorin” (literal title).
Following the reports, Shin Hye Sun’s agency YNK Entertainment commented, “Shin Hye Sun has received the offer to star as the female lead Kim So Yong for ‘Queen Cheorin,’ and she is positively reviewing the offer.”
With Joseon Dynasty as the background, “Queen Cheorin” will be a bright and comedic fusion sageuk (Korean historical drama). The drama will be written by scriptwriter Park Gye Ok who wrote “Doctor Prisoner” and “Inspiring Generation,” and it will be helmed by PD (producing director) Yoon Sung Shik who directed “Hwarang” and “Tower of Babel.”
“Queen Cheorin” will be about Bong Hwan, a man living in modern times whose soul gets trapped in the body of a queen from the Joseon Dynasty. The drama will tell the story from a refreshing perspective while showcasing a new type of genre as it takes on the fight against gender stereotypes.
After making her debut through KBS’s “School 2013,” Shin Hye Sun rose to fame through her role in the KBS weekend drama “Five Enough” back in 2016. Since then, she has starred in numerous projects including SBS’s “The Legend of the Blue Sea,” tvN’s “Forest of Secrets,” KBS’s “My Golden Life,” SBS’s “30 but 17,” and KBS’s “Angel’s Last Mission: Love.” Recently, she has also been confirmed to star in the film “Innocence.”
“Queen Cheorin” is scheduled to air sometime in November.
