Watch: King Kim Young Dae Meets His Match In Con Artist Park Ju Hyun In Fun Teaser For “The Forbidden Marriage”
MBC has shared an exciting new sneak peek of its upcoming drama “The Forbidden Marriage”!
Based on the web novel of the same name, “The Forbidden Marriage” will star Kim Young Dae as King Yi Heon, who falls deep into despair after the death of his wife and ends up prohibiting marriage in his kingdom. Seven years after the loss of his wife (played by IZ*ONE‘s Kim Min Ju), who was then the crown princess, he comes across a con artist named So Rang (Park Ju Hyun) who claims that she can be possessed by the late princess’s spirit.
The newly released preview begins with whispered rumors about the king’s sanity, with murmurs of “The king is a total madman” and “He’s gone completely insane.” Yi Heon then draws his sword and asks intimidatingly, “Do you also see me as a crazy tyrant?”
Although the caption introduces Yi Heon as a “crazy king who has prohibited marriage for seven years,” he winds up meeting his match in the unstoppable con artist So Rang, who bursts into the picture declaring confidently, “I’m back.” As someone describes her as “that famous marriage con artist of our time,” the buoyant So Rang boasts about all the illegal matches she’s made all over the country before insisting, “I won’t get caught!”
However, the teaser then immediately cuts to So Rang behind bars, suggesting that she might have been a bit too confident. As the caption teases that she will “shake up the entire nation with a lie that she started in order to survive,” So Rang pretends to be possessed by Yi Heon’s late wife in a hilariously desperate attempt at survival.
“The Forbidden Marriage” will premiere on December 9 at 9:50 p.m. KST. In the meantime, check out the new teaser below!
