Shin Hye Sun And Kim Jung Hyun Share An Awkward Wedding Night In Upcoming Drama “Mr. Queen”
“Mr. Queen” is a new historical fantasy-comedy drama about a man from modern times whose soul gets trapped in the body of a queen from the Joseon dynasty. Shin Hye Sun will star as Kim So Yong, the Joseon queen with the soul of Blue House chef Jang Bong Hwan trapped inside her, while Kim Jung Hyun will play her husband King Cheoljong.
In newly released stills from the upcoming drama, Kim So Yong appears noticeably uncomfortable at the couple’s lavish royal wedding. Despite looking beautiful in her resplendent wedding attire, the bride seems to be having a hard time dealing with the heavy ornaments atop her head, and her distressed expression even catches the attention of the groom.
However, the wedding is the least of Kim So Yong’s problems: the newly crowned queen must also face the ordeal of her wedding night. Left alone with her new husband for their first night together, Kim So Yong rolls up her sleeves and appears to challenge the king to a drink-off, with romance nowhere to be found.
Even after Cheoljong embraces his wife with a determined look in his eye, he ultimately falls asleep on his own as Kim So Yong attempts to put as much distance as she can between them.
The producers of “Mr. Queen” commented, “Kim So Yong jumps into palace life without knowing just how dangerous a place the royal court can be, and the amazing story of her struggle to survive in the palace will deliver an entirely new kind of entertainment. The unspeakable transformation of Queen Kim So Yong will also bring a fresh wind of change into the palace.”
They added, “The dynamic process of [Kim So Yong and Cheoljong]—both of whom have many secrets—growing closer will switch back and forth between thrilling viewers and making their hearts flutter.”
“Mr. Queen” premieres on December 12 at 9 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
