2PM’s Lee Junho And Lee Se Young Grow Closer After She Is Promoted To His Court In “The Red Sleeve”
“The Red Sleeve” is a new historical drama about the imperial romance between crown prince Yi San (played by Lee Junho), who later becomes emperor, and the strong-willed court lady Seong Deok Im (played by Lee Se Young).
On the previous episode of “The Red Sleeve,” Yi San and Seong Deok Im began to develop feelings for one another after risking their lives together to save their people. However, the episode ended on a cliffhanger: despite Yi San’s best efforts to hide his identity, Seong Deok Im unexpectedly found out that the man she knew as a government official was, in fact, the crown prince.
In newly released stills from the drama’s upcoming fourth episode, Yi San and Seong Deok Im’s relationship begins to evolve after she learns his identity. When Seong Deok Im officially becomes one of his court ladies, the two finally come together as their true selves, without Yi San hiding under a false cover.
Although Seong Deok Im primly faces away from Yi San during her promotion, the crown prince is unable to take his eyes off her. With a gaze full of emotion, he eventually winds up taking Seong Deok Im by the wrist as he speaks to her, while she reacts by staring up at him in shock.
The photos raise the question of whether Yi San is finally making a move and expressing his feelings for Seong Deok Im—and how their relationship will change after she joins his court and spends every waking moment with him.
The next episode of “The Red Sleeve” will air on November 20 at 9:50 p.m. KST.
