The last time a K-drama put a honey of mine in a mask it did not end, I’m still mildly traumatized by Lee Jun Ki being so wasted in the narrative and directorial hot mess that was Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Ryeo. I hope MBC knows what it’s doing for spring sageuk Ruler – Master of the Mask, because if Yoo Seung Ho gets suck in a terribly written sageuk imma flip some tables. The drama released the first substantive preview this week with action scenes from the story, lots of quick cuts that show the titular mask (full versus a half mask) as well as all the leads. Yoo Seung Ho will be joined by Kim So Hyun, L, Yoon So Hee, Park Chul Min, and Heo Jun Ho in what appears to be a Joseon twist on The Man in the Iron Mask. The teaser looks intense and gripping, with plenty of Yoo Seung Ho eye candy, even if behind a mask half the time, to make it worth checking out.
