Shin Hye Sun And Kim Jung Hyun Remain Calm In The Midst Of Crisis In “Mr. Queen”
tvN’s “Mr. Queen” revealed new stills ahead of tonight’s episode!
“Mr. Queen” is a historical fusion drama about a man from modern times whose soul is trapped in the body of a queen from the Joseon dynasty. Shin Hye Sun stars as Kim So Yong, the Joseon queen with the soul of Blue House chef Jang Bong Hwan trapped inside her. Kim Jung Hyun plays her husband King Cheoljong, who is a weak and ineffective king on the outside but is stronger and sharper than he appears.
Despite Kim So Yong’s attempts to sort out her confused feelings for King Cheoljong, the two individuals have only been growing closer. When Kim So Yong’s note fell into King Cheoljong’s hands, they ended up writing notes back and forth all night. Meanwhile, crisis also befell the celebratory banquet as precious ingredients became unable to be used and Queen Sunwon (Bae Jong Ok) suggested a sudden bout of martial arts. To make matters worse, Kim So Yong found herself in danger as Jo Hwa Jin (Seol In Ah) aimed an arrow directly at her.
New stills preview the tension at the scene of the banquet. King Cheoljong had planned to order Prince Yeongpyeong (Yoo Min Kyu) to collect the ingredients needed for the banquet. A sense of urgency falls over Cheoljong’s face as Prince Yeongpyeong delivers an urgent message, and Kim So Yong looks on with sadness in her eyes. In the final still, Kim So Yong stands with her mouth agape in astonishment amidst the chaos of the banquet, leading viewers to wonder what new incident will occur.
The drama’s production team hinted at the upcoming turn of events as they shared, “The ‘no touch’ couple of Kim So Yong and Cheoljong will come to a mutual understanding as they face an unexpected predicament. Kim So Yong’s leap to action after she detects the crisis that will befall Cheoljong will be an interesting development.”
The next episode of “Mr. Queen” airs on January 17 at 9 p.m. KST.
