Lee Joon, Kang Han Na, And Jang Hyuk Confirmed For New Historical Drama
KBS 2TV’s new Monday-Tuesday drama “Red Heart” (literal title) has confirmed its cast!
Previously, the drama shared that Lee Joon, Kang Han Na, and Jang Hyuk were in talks to star in “Red Heart.” On November 2, KBS stated that all three actors have been confirmed to be part of the historical drama and that their synergy will create a unique setting and solid storyline.
“Red Heart” is a fictional historical drama about Lee Tae, who becomes the king of Joseon and dreams of absolute monarchy.
Lee Joon has been cast as Lee Tae, who aims to strengthen his authority by getting rid of Park Kye Won and his subjects. Lee Tae is a person who thinks any action is justifiable to achieve his goal, and fans are already looking forward to how Lee Joon will express his character’s emotional lines as he fiercely fights for power.
Kang Han Na has been offered the role of Yoo Jung, a free-spirited woman who Lee Tae falls in love with. Lee Tae picks Yoo Jung as his crown princess, causing a troublesome situation for his family, and he is forced to make a choice between the one he loves and his family’s plans for revenge.
Jang Hyuk will take on the role of Park Kye Won, who will be involved in intense conflict with Lee Tae. Park Kye Won is a living symbol of power and a figure that everyone obeys. He is a “king maker” who resolves to “create a wise and young king with his own hands” so that the foundation of Joseon will not be shaken by tyrants again.
Fans are especially looking forward to the reunion of Lee Joon and Jang Hyuk, who worked together in the 2013 drama “Iris 2.”
“Red Heart” will be directed by Yoo Young Eun, who previously directed “How to Buy a Friend” and “Manhole,” and written by Park Pil Joo, who previously wrote dramas including “Marry Me Now” and “First Love Again.”
It is scheduled to premiere in the first half of 2022.
