tvN is investing 10 billion won in a huge drama production named The Three Musketeers, and at the moment we have Lee Jin Wook (Nine) being casted as Crown Prince Sohyeon. CNBlue’s Jung Yong Hwa (Mirae’s Choice) is reported to have auditioned, but due to his singer’s status and busy schedule, it is still undecided. Meanwhile Kim Ji Suk (Personal Taste) is also currently in talks.
The Three Musketeer is set in Joseon period, and the storyline will take place between Joseon and China’s Qing Dynasty – about Crown Prince Sohyeon with his two escorts Heo Seung Po, Ahn Min Suh and also Park Dahl Hyang – a man of noble birth, but from a poor family, who travels to Han Yang to take the military force exam. Inspired by the original French novel, the story is said to focus on romance, action, tragic politics and the life of these men.
The drama is planned for 3 seasons with 12 episodes per season, and is set to start filming in June and premiere its first season in August. The casts will stay the same for all 3 seasons. Director Kim Byung Soo and the screen writer Song Jae Jung who have both worked together for Queen In Hyun’s Man and Nine will reunite for this drama.
Woah… if this works out with the casts, OH MY GOD! *Pinch* It’d be fun to see Jung Yong Hwa in sageuk and possibly as one of the swordsmen! I like Lee Jin Wook too, he’s such a cutie. Unfortunately, casting is still incomplete and thus, everything is uncertain at this point. Personally, I would be thrilled to see Yong Hwa back with another project, and having both Lee Jin Wook and Yong Hwa together on my screen will be such a wonderful treat! ❤
TAKE IT! Take it Yong Hwa!
