Shin Hye Sun Transforms Into Eccentric Queen For Upcoming Drama

tvN’s new drama “Mr. Queen” has released a new glimpse of Shin Hye Sun in her starring role!

“Mr. Queen” is a historical fusion drama about a man from modern times whose soul gets trapped in the body of a queen from the Joseon dynasty.

Shin Hye Sun stars as Kim So Yong, the queen with the soul of Jang Bong Hwan trapped inside her. Kim Jung Hyun takes the role of King Cheoljong, who seems like a weak and ineffective king but has a sharp and strong-willed side that he keeps hidden.

In the newly released stills, Shin Hye Sun turns into Kim So Yong, a character who is in the wrong body at the wrong time period. She is no ordinary queen, and she isn’t afraid to hide her true self. Her eyes are bold with modern-day charisma, and she does various odd things that raises eyebrows.

Kim So Yong also poses coolly outside, and her majestic robes fly out and glisten under the sunlight. She also sits at a table of royal food, and her hands are politely folded before her. It seems like she might adjust to the Joseon era just fine.

Shin Hye Sun commented, “I thought the script was refreshing and funny. I wanted to try acting in a historical drama and comedy drama, and I was drawn to the interesting script that encompasses both genres. This character is a completely different one from the other characters I’ve portrayed so far, so I think I will be able to show a new side of me.”

Then she added, “Kim So Yong is a combination of a Joseon dynasty queen, who has lived under strict discipline, and a ‘red-blooded’ man from modern-day Korea. The two characters, who are different in terms of the era they’re from, personalities, tone, and behavior, will be combined to maximize synergy. Kim So Yong will run about the palace with a wild spirit without a fear of the rules, and that will provide both refreshing relief as well as thrilling tension.”

“Mr. Queen” premieres on December 12 at 9 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
