Choi Soo Jong Will Return to the Historical Drama Scene After a 5-year Hiatus

Actor Choi Soo Jong will make a comeback to the world of historical dramas this summer in 'The King's Dream'. Choi Soo Jong, who is known for his roles in historical drama series, hasn't taken a single role in a historical piece since 2007 in 'Dae Jo Yeong'.

Of course, as the master of the period pieces, Choi Soo Jong will return to the screen as none other than the king himself. Choi stated in an interview, "When I saw the synopsis, I couldn't help but get greedy. I couldn't waste this opportunity, letting it pass on to some other lucky guy, but at the same time, thinking about taking the role myself seemed difficult. However, I just couldn't turn this offer down." Despite Choi Soo Jong's mixed feelings, he is excited to act in a historical Korean drama once again.

Over the years, many critics have applauded Choi Soo Jong for his outstanding performances and ability to effectively portray the majestic and glorious air of ancient Korean royalty. With so much expectation for the star Choi Soo Jong, 'The King's Dream' will surely be a hit.

'The King's Dream' will begin airing in early September on KBS1.

Lina From CSJH The Grace Lands a Lead Role in ‘The King’s Dream’

CSJH The Grace's Lina will star in a KBS1 weekend drama called 'The King's Dream'. This period piece will feature Lina as Kim Moon Hee, the second wife of the king. This drama's main plotline will involve a king who is working hard to achieve the goal of uniting the Three Kingdoms politically.

Formed in 2005, the girl group CSJH is SM Entertainment Company's quartet project. Officially, CSJH stands for the romanization of the group's Korean name Cheon Sang Ji Hee. "The Grace" was not added to their name until after 2006. As CSJH The Grace is active and widely popular in not only Korea but also Japan and China, the new drama 'The King's Dream' will have a trifecta effect of attracting audiences from all three countries, highly anticipating Lina's small screens appearance.

Although Lina has performed in musicals before, this will be her first time trying a drama series on television. Since debuting as a singer with SM Entertainment, Lina has been seen in various musicals such as 'Fame', 'Youth's March', and 'Temptation of Wolves'. Lina stated in an interview, "Although I don't have any experience with the small screens, I will try my best and work hard to learn how to act in a drama. Please enjoy even if I do make a few mistakes here and there."

'The King's Dream' is an 80-episode series and will air on September 8th.

KBS presents King’s Dream as a pure saeguk drama, to satisfy audience who looked for authentic historical drama after lot of fusion saeguk dramas lately such as God of War, Dr Jin and Queen Inhyun’ Man.

King’s Dream centers its story on King Mooyul from ancient Shilla dynasty. The ancient Korea peninsula was divided into 3 countries (Shilla, Baekje and Gogoryo) , and King Mooyul was the king who successfully established the unification and made those three countries as unified nation.

King’s Dream will avoid many expensive war scenes, instead they will present the complicate and delicate political situation among nation’s elite. We’ll see how ancient nation’s leaders establish their leadership, fight and compromise with neighbor countries. The drama also portrayed Korean relation with ancient Japan and China (Tang Dynasty).

Veteran actor Choi Soo Jung (President, War of Roses) plays the role of King Mooyul and actress Park Joo Mi (I Believe in Love) will take leading lady role, Queen Sun Duk.

During the press conference, Park Joo Mi expressed her goal to show different style of Queen Sun Duk.
To make it different from Lee Yo Won’s in previous hit drama Queen Sun Duk, Joo Mi said ,” My Sun Duk won’t swing a sword in battle field. I will show different part of the Queen that previous drama didn’t show”.

Meanwhile, leading man Choi Soo Jung said ,” I’m a man who see a drama performance through its script because the 90% portion drama’s success is decided by its script. And King’s Dream is very interesting and great, please cheer for this drama”.
Choi Soo Jung also showed his confidence for King’s Dream ,” I felt no burden. A drama is not made only by one man. The kind of people we worked together is important. I’m confident that I’m with the best seniors and capable juniors, so I feel relax”.

And the veteran actor has his perspective about rating ,”Some actors said that they didn’t care about rating. They said it’s good enough if the drama’s team worked in friendly atmosphere. But actually, if the rating is low, the shooting atmosphere becomes gloom”.

King’s Dream airs September 8.

Lee Se-yeong grows up fast

Lee Se-yeong grew up so fast.

The first episode of the KBS 1TV drama "The Great King's Dream" showed Lee Se-yeong all grown up.

Lee Se-yeong appeared as Cheon Gwan-nyeo who Kim Yoo-sin (No Yeong-hak) falls in love with a first sight. She was daring as she warned "You can't do this to a vestal like me" to the soldiers who mocked her.

Lee Se-yeong had a good base in acting thanks to her child actress days and seemingly all grown up.

Netizen's say, "When did she become so big?", "She's become prettier" and more.

Lee Se-yeong debuted in the SBS drama "Brothers' River" in 1997 and starred in "My Love Patzzi", "Dae Jang Geum" and movie "When I Turned Nine" and "Lovely Rivals"
