It’s like the producers of upcoming fantasy sageuk movie Joseon Magician knew exactly which of my buttons to push when it comes to male lead Yoo Seung Ho. Stick in in a flowy long hair wig to bring back all the devastating memories from his sageuk turns in Warrior Baek Dong Soo and Arang and the Magistrate? Check. It’s like he was born to rock the long locks without a shred of self-consciousness and looking manlier than ever.
The movie promo team also did something super cool and fresh which is take the recently released movie poster and showcase it as a motion capture product that goes from Yoo Seung Ho with his eyes closed all the way to dazzling with one sky blue right eye. Nice! I know this movie has a romance angle as the magician falls for the Joseon princess played by Go Ara, but at this point it’s all Yoo Seung Ho and I couldn’t be happier. Moar please!
