Queen Seon-deok unveils its leading man
Finally! We’ve seen the ladies of the historical drama Queen Seon-deok, now we finally have a peek at Uhm Tae-woong in his first sageuk role. (Stills have already been released for his becostumed co-stars Lee Yo-won as queen and Go Hyun-jung as court lady Mi-shil.)
OH! I just realized — with KBS’s The Man Who Can’t Get Married ready to premiere in early June, not only will Uhm Tae-woong be starring in a drama at the same time as big sis Uhm Jung-hwa, they’ll be battling timeslots! (They’ll both be on Mondays and Tuesdays, with little bro on MBC and his noona on KBS.) Wonder what family dinners are gonna be like over the next several months…
To get into character as the historical figure Kim Yoo-shin, Uhm Tae-woong — who is a fabulous and intense actor (see: Rebirth, Devil) — has been busy in physical training, practicing martial arts and horseback riding nearly every day for the past three months.
Uhm describes his character as dependable and someone who “knows how to wait.” Asked to describe how he felt working opposite Lee Yo-won and Go Hyun-jung, he said, “They are both people I’d wanted to work with” and had a good feeling about both of them from the start.
