I’m sure it’ll get a different English title but the drama will star Jang Hyuk, Lee Joon, and Kang Nan Na in a traditional sageuk with political conflict between the young King trying to consolidate power back from the politician who helped his father gain the throne. Filming has been underway for months now but there is a cool guest appearance in the early parts of the drama with former child actor Park Ji Bin playing the young Crown Prince who grows up to become Lee Joon’s King character.
