Choi Jin Hyuk Talks About Making A Special Appearance On “Mr. Queen”
“Mr. Queen” is a historical fusion drama about a man from modern times whose soul becomes 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 a modern man inside her.
Choi Jin Hyuk made a special appearance in the December 12 premiere as Jang Bong Hwan in his original body as a cocky chef who works at the Blue House. After he falls into a swimming pool and is kissed by Kim So Yong, he wakes up in Kim So Yong’s body. Starting from episode two, Choi Jin Hyuk also narrates some lines from his character’s perspective in his new body.
A source from his agency stated, “Although it’s just a cameo appearance, he watched Shin Hye Sun act before he began filming and did his best to set a tone that she could match. It was an honor for him to work with director Yoon Sung Sik. Although it was a short appearance, he was grateful for being able to act out such a unique role and try a new challenge. Please show a lot of love for ‘Mr. Queen,’ which has such a fun premise.”
On Instagram, Choi Jin Hyuk uploaded a clip from the drama and wrote, “Did you enjoy watching the first two episodes of ‘Mr. Queen’? It was an honor to work on this project. I saw the scripts for future episodes and they were really funny. Please show it a lot of love and support! (The underwater filming was quite difficult… They said it was just a cameo… I was tricked, haha.) But I had so much fun filming. Fighting to the ‘Mr. Queen’ team!”
