The male cast of Bu Bu Jing Xin, whether the C-drama version or now the K-drama adaptation, understandably gets the most buzz since it’s a particularly extravagant female fantasy to have so many flower boy princes buzzing around the female lead. The Korean version Bobogyungsim: Ryeo (Scarlet Heart: Ryeo) is prepping the post-production touches for an end of August premiere and nearly all the main leads have been unveiled in costume to varying degrees of approval.
Male lead Lee Jun Ki‘s guyliner eye patch 4th Prince is polarizing (I love it!) whereas IU‘s fresh-faced court lady is uniformly seen to fit the role. With all the princes trotted out for show it’s time to meet another princess character – SNSD‘s Seohyun is playing the last Baekjae kingdom princess who will have her own tormented romance with one of the younger princes. She looks lovely in costume and is selling the dancing warrior princess piercing gaze.
