“The Red Sleeve” Releases Character Posters Of Lee Se Young And The Palace Women, Park Ji Young, Lee Deok Hwa, And Jang Hee Jin
Based on a novel, “The Red Sleeve” is a traditional historical drama that tells the record of an imperial court romance between court lady Seong Deok Im (Lee Se Young), who wanted to protect the life she had chosen, and emperor Yi San (2PM’s Junho), who put the nation first before love.
The newly released posters highlight those in highest power within the palace. They feature Lee Deok Hwa as King Yeongjo, Park Ji Young as Chief Court Lady, Jang Hee Jin as Queen Kim, as well as the palace women Seong Deok Im, Court Lady Seo (Jang Hye Jin), Kim Bok Yeon (Lee Min Ji), Bae Kyung Hee (Ha Yul Ri), and Son Young Hee (Lee Eun Saem).
Lee Deok Hwa’s poster showcases an aura that is exclusive to the King. King Yeongjo is a good king with genius political powers who looks after state affairs and has a charm that ensures no one messes with him. Viewers can look forward to how King Yeongjo will act as the authority in the palace is transferred and how it connects to the saying on his poster, “Those who must disappear will disappear and those who should step back will step back.”
In Park Ji Young’s poster, you can see her dark charisma as Chief Court Lady, the top authority among the palace women. The poster reads, “You can’t ever trust the king. The only thing we can believe in is ourselves.”
Jang Hee Jin’s beautiful poster captures the heavy weight that her character holds. Queen Kim is King Yeongjo’s second wife who will soon rise to the position of queen consort. Her character appears extravagant but noble with a firm and intent gaze. The caption reads, “Will the sun rise in the east?”
The group poster for the palace women show the bright personalities of Lee Se Young, Jang Hye Jin, Lee Min Ji, Ha Yul Ri, and Lee Eun Saem. Basking in the warm sun shining through the window, the ladies show off their close relationship with their big smiles. The emotional caption on the poster reads, “I wish everything stayed the same like this with all of us together.”
“The Red Sleeve” premieres on November 5 and will be available on Viki. Check out a teaser here!
