2PM’s Lee Junho Can’t Hide His Amusement In Front Of The Fretful Lee Se Young In “The Red Sleeve”
MBC’s new historical drama “The Red Sleeve” has shared new stills ahead of the upcoming episode!
Based on a novel, “The Red Sleeve” is a traditional historical drama that tells the record of an imperial court romance between a court lady named Seong Deok Im (Lee Se Young), who wanted to protect the life she had chosen, and emperor Yi San (Lee Junho), who put the nation first before love. The drama is based on the real historical figures King Jeongjo, the 22nd ruler of the Joseon dynasty (born under the name Yi San), and royal concubine Ui of the Seong clan (Seong Deok Im).
The historical drama made a promising start, earning an average nationwide rating of 5.7 percent and a peak of 8.0 percent for its first episode.
On November 13, the drama gave a sneak peek of the second episode. In the newly released stills, Yi San and Seong Deok Im are at the crown prince’s quarters. Yi San is sitting upright with a solemn aura, while Seong Deok Im flattens herself to the ground with uneasy eyes. Yi San reads the article she has brought, and he gives her a fierce glare before breaking into an amused smile. Seong Deok Im’s uneasiness turns into distraught, and her shoulders droop with devastation.
The drama’s producers teased, “In the second episode, Yi San and Seong Deok Im’s rapidly progressing relationship will make the viewers’ hearts flutter. Please look forward to it.”
Then next episode of “The Red Sleeve” will air on November 13 at 9:50 p.m. KST.
