Shin Hye Sun, Kim Jung Hyun, Bae Jong Ok, and Kim Tae Woo Confirmed for Comedy Sageuk Drama Queen Cheorin

I don’t think the upcoming sageuk drama Queen Cheorin is announced and an official adaptation of GPG but it’s totally the same plot. Shin Hye Sun is confirmed to play the titular Queen Cheorin who was raised prim and proper and believes its her filial duty to her father to follow his arrangement to become the Queen. Then the soul of a modern day man is suddenly swapped into her body and she turns into a wild and brash new personality, and of course hijinks ensue. Kim Jung Hyun plays her husband the young King who seems like a puppet ruler on the surface but secretly plotting reforms to better his kingdom for the people. Bae Jong Ok and Kim Tae Woo (woo hoo!) round out the cast as members of the powerful royal family with their own agendas. The drama is from the PD of Hwarang and the screenwriter of Inspiring Generation and Dr. Prisoner.
