Kim Hye Soo Shows Off Her Contrasting Modes As Queen In New Posters For “The Queen’s Umbrella”
“The Queen’s Umbrella” has dropped new posters capturing Kim Hye Soo’s “ON” and “OFF” modes!
tvN’s upcoming Saturday-Sunday drama “The Queen’s Umbrella” is a new historical drama that centers on the special palace education system of the Joseon Dynasty. The drama will follow the conflict within the palace over trying to make proper princes out of its five troublemaking princes, who cause nothing but headaches for the royal family.
Kim Hye Soo will star in the drama as queen Im Hwa Ryung, the wife of a great king and the long-suffering mother of five troublemaking sons.
The drama has newly shared two main posters that capture queen Hwa Ryung’s dignified “ON” mode as well as her friendly “OFF” mode.
In the “ON” version poster, queen Im Hwa Ryung is a sharp, dignified, and charismatic leader. She stands firmly with her powerful mother-in-law, Queen Dowager (Kim Hae Sook), who is engulfed in a cold aura. They are joined by top concubines, the prim Tae So Yong (Kim Ga Eun) and the prestigious Hwang Gwi In (Ok Ja Yeon).
Another key point of this poster is their strict formation. All four ladies flaunt their perfect posture and stare directly in front of them, creating a flawless photo but with a suffocatingly stiff atmosphere.
The second “OFF” poster captures the queen’s alternate side as a fun mother. She poses playfully with her sons, prince Sung Nam (Moon Sang Min), prince Gye Sung (Yoo Seon Ho), and prince Mu Ahn (Yoon Sang Hyun). Unlike the first photo, there is no standard rule to how the princes stand around their mother, which represents their carefree and loose lives.
Stay tuned to find out what other sides queen Hwa Ryung will showcase in her “OFF” mode!
“The Queen’s Umbrella” will premiere on October 15 at 9:10 p.m. KST! Check out a teaser here.
