Watch: 2PM’s Junho Finds Himself Unexpectedly Growing Fond Of Lee Se Young In “The Red Sleeve Cuff” Teaser
Based on a popular novel, “The Red Sleeve Cuff” is a traditional historical drama that tells the record of an imperial court romance between a court lady who wanted to protect the life she had chosen and an emperor who put the nation first before love.
Junho stars as Yi San, the direct descendant and eldest grandson of the king, who will later become King Jeongjo. Lee Se Young stars as Seong Deok Im, a court lady who wants to make her own decisions about life rather than be one of the king’s many women.
The new teaser captures Yi San’s perspective on how he views court lady Seong Deok Im. The preview begins with Seong Deok Im picking out flowers as Yi San narrates, “You are but one of numerous court ladies, and I didn’t think you were even slightly important.” However, Yi San’s arrogance soon breaks as he begins to see the special and lovable nature of Seong Deok Im, who is more beautiful than any wild flower, has a smile warmer than the sun, and exudes elegance as she enjoys writing in the library.
Yi San suddenly appears in front of Seong Deok Im when she’s about to leave the library, making her flustered from almost bumping into him. Seong Deok Im takes a few steps back while Yi San observes her with a sharp gaze, approaching her one step at a time. Yi San breaks into an unexpected smile after reading the letter of apology from Seong Deok Im, and she responds with a mischievous smile of her own. He continues to narrate, “However, now I’m not so sure. You make me waver. This will be troublesome.”
The teaser of the prickly and arrogant Yi San gradually growing attached to the ambitious Seong Deok Im previews the upcoming romance to come. Already, viewers are looking forward to the sweet romantic chemistry between Junho and Lee Se Young.
“The Red Sleeve Cuff” premieres on November 5 and will be available on Viki. Watch the full teaser below!
