Sageuk romances are by nature restrained and less is said/done is more presentation due to the characters living in an historical era of emphasis on etiquette and form. The upcoming MBC drama The Red Sleeve Cuff seems to be taking that to the extreme, it’s sooooooo implied that the new poster above seems to have court lady Lee Se Young having a ghostly rather than romantic connection with Junho‘s King. I’m amused more than anything, this seems like a total slow burn and that’s fine since there are so many other sageuks taking a more direct romantic approach. The poster above shows that the two leads are close but kept apart by a mere window and the other poster below shows only their hands reaching for each other but not yet touching. I think the drama will really appeal to the viewers who have the patience for a slow burn romance and a traditional palace story.
