King Yoo Seung-ho makes his Seon-deok appearance

Teen star Yoo Seung-ho (Legend, Fourth Period Murder Mystery) is finally making his appearance on the sageuk series Queen Seon-deok, which is currently sitting far ahead of its competition in the Monday-Tuesday ratings game. On September 14, the production released the latest images of Yoo on its homepage, dressed as his character Kim Chun-chu.

Chun-chu is the son of Princess Cheon-myung, played by Park Ye-jin, and believes that Princess Deok-man (Lee Yo-won) was responsible for his mother’s death. He later becomes King Tae-jong Mu-yeol of Silla. Yoo’s first appearance will air tomorrow in Episode 34.

A few days ago, Yoo Seung-ho expressed his his feelings about filming in an interview video posted on his homepage: “I was worried about messing up and I rehearsed a lot, so I think I was able to perform without mistakes. [My character Kim Chun-chu] is forceful and masculine, a remarkable and capable person.”

As he joins the production after it has already crossed the 40% ratings threshold, he said, “I’d like it if the ratings could pass 50%. I hope it doesn’t fall from here.”

Spoiler please!!!!!! Who is Kim Chun Chu's father????? Did Princess Cheon myong marry somebody? (Not Yu Shin, not Yu Shin, please tell me its is not him!!!!!)

I wanted to watch this but the love story plots of historical dramas tend to defy my beliefs and fantasies to true love. One night stand, concubines, mistresses..

and I only watched a couple of episodes (middle part) and I am soooo rooting for Yu Shin and Deok Man but I have a sinking feeling it is going to turn sour with love sacrifices and betrayal and more contrived plots....

@3 xiaoXsin, chunchu's father is still yongsu (her late husband, first son of king jinji). no worries.

^^ i think he's better looking than so jisub. give him a few years and he'll stand on top, i think.

Who is Kim Chun Chu’s father?
Kim Chun Chu's father is already during the war but was killled by someone who work for MiShil. Princess Cheon myong found out that she's pregnant after her husband's burial. Princess Cheon Myong hid the baby to protect from MiShil or from curse.

I have an issue with this. In that the age factor does not mesh, Chumyeong had him at age 15 and died at age 20, then assuming 3 years has past since her death he comes to Shilla. If that's the case, he's the biggest 8 year old we have seen. Its either that or something else, what age is he suppose to be on his return? Is it 12, 14 what? I keep on thinking about the younger versions of the adult actors which made sense and his arrival at this point explains my confusion somewhat, what a unique growth spurt. Therefore, what has Deokman, Yushin and the rest been doing all those years? It does not make sense, and frankly I do not like that. Sure he's a good actor, but what would make the story better that's what I'm saying? If it was 50 episodes, its a bit understandable, but its 62 and therefore his coming now is too early. I would have preferred seeing him in episode 45 and up. Plus everyone else should have somewhat aged as well.

agree with chasen8888! when i watch historical dramas, i intentionally overlook those details (their age, timeline, and their-not-so aging-face) because I just get confused and can't enjoy the drama that much because of lack of comprehension..

other dramas also do not make sense with their dramas and age of the lead characters .. (Like Bae Yong Jun being a 17 year old in the Legend.. I mean cmon!!!!! get real!)

QSD has been REALLY wacky about the aging of the actors. For example, Mishil is probably in her 50s but she looks much younger than the King. Princess Chumyeong called Deokman a "child" even though they were twins. Or uhhh Yeohwa having gray hair and being delirious, and then the next episode looking like the last 20 years hasn't happened.

But the show is 120% fun, so I wouldn't mind if 5-year old Chun Chu has a deep voice. Or if 15 year old Chun Chu storms into the Kingdom of Paekche on a motorcycle.

The character of Mishil is supposed to be in her early 50s, but I think Cheon Myung was supposed to be older than 20 when she died. The character of Chun Chu is supposed to be older than 10 at the very least. As for Princess Chun Myung calling Deokman "child" that has nothing to do with age, but with their positions. When Princess Chun Myung was a princess and Deokman a nyang do, regardless of how similar their ages were, Deokman's status was considerably lower. So Princess Chun Myung referring to Deokman as "child" was really just a way to refer to someone still young who's status is just so much lower than herself.

Darn, I shouldn't have read this post. I didn't want to know Princess Chun Myung will be killed off.

I just started to watch QSD this weekend and is really enjoying it. Although, I much preferred watching the younger actress portray Deokman than the elder actress.

I heart YuShin-rang!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What doesn't make sense is that Deokman said she and YuShin couldn't be together because she was going to (try to) be queen. But her twin Princess CheonMyung had already married once and was supposed to marry YuShin through their parents' arrangement.
So a princess can marry...
And a king definitely can - in fact, often had many 'wives'...
But Deokman as a queen can't?? Doesn't make sense and isn't fair.

"As for Princess Chun Myung calling Deokman “child” that has nothing to do with age, but with their positions."

Yeah, but I don't feel that holds. When they were teens, they clearly treated each other as people of like age. When they grow up, she wouldn't call a "male" nangdo a "child" unless there was an implied difference in age, which there is none.

"The character of Chun Chu is supposed to be older than 10 at the very least. "

I just don't see how without a time jump. The distance between teenage and adult Deokman and Chung Myung more or less marks Chun Chu's age. Deokman is somewhere between 20-25, and so Chung Myung probably couldn't be more than 10 years old.

Not just that, but the king and queen are between 15-20 years younger than Mishil. Yushin is visibly older than the other hwarang, even though they were probably about the same age as kids.

I threw out logic a long time ago with sageuks, but the story is important. So the others were taking "Sageuk's specialised fertilizer? only to use in cases of emergency". To me bringing ChunChu right now spoils the story. Its either that or is QSD going start going downhill storywise/entertaining wise after his "early" entrance? I sincerely hope not, we'll just have to wait and see don't we!!

About Princess Cheonmyung calling Deokman "Child",
Yes, it was about status. . . but the biggest factor is that although they were twins, Princess Cheonmyung was still the "older" one. And as you all know being older in Korean culture especially back then was a huge deal. So the face that Cheonmyung called Deokman "child" was more of a term of endearment from the unnie to the dongseng.

Ooh, he looks good! I always thought he looked a little bit gangly and odd in previous dramas, particularly The King and I, but it looks like he's finally growing into his looks. Hopefully he'll add a little oomph into Queen Seon Deok; it's beginning to get a little stale. The action-adventure RPG-style only gets you so far, particularly when the main character is now locked into the princess role.

The weird aging process and just how the concept of time is totally illogical usually would have bothered me, but from the very first episode I realized that logic had to be thrown out the window. I mean it only take's Deokman just a few months or so to travel from the Taklamakan desert back to Shilla? When it took Xuanzang several years to travel to India? QSD has a lot of discrepancies, but I'm watching it for the actors because there has been some pretty interesting revelations acting wise.

And also because of the eye candy...it was actually funny to me that Lee Seung Hyo's character Alcheon is getting so much screen time because all of a sudden he got more screen time and I'm guessing MBC is banking on the positive feedback about his character from the audience---which of course I don't mind, Alcheon's my next favorite after Bidam and I think LSH is doing a good job (my favorite scene's got to be the one where he petition's the king---seriously looked like Lee Jun-ki there). But I mean if they are changing the plot so easily based on the viewers' opinion then it's going to be difficult to have a fairly consistent plot line and please everyone.

Oh well...I'm still really looking forward to Yoo Seung-ho's appearance.

"But I mean if they are changing the plot so easily based on the viewers’ opinion then it’s going to be difficult to have a fairly consistent plot line and please everyone."

Ehhhh, you'd be surprised. Dang Jang Geum's plot was totally reworked after the audience fell in love with Madam Han. She was supposed to be in like 7-10 episodes, but that story arc ended up taking half of the show, and it significantly altered the 2nd half of the drama.

"it was actually funny to me that Lee Seung Hyo’s character Alcheon got so much screen time because randomly he got more screentime"

I actually think Lee Seung Hyo would have made a much better Yushin. Eom Tae Woong's performance as Yushin has been kinda flat for much of the show. I used to think it was Yushin is such a boring, rather dumb kind of guy. But Alcheon is not meant to be an interesting character either , and yet LSH has an easy time conveying his character's upright nobility and principled intensity. Alcheon seems more than he is.

The scene between Bidam and Mishil in Episode 33 gave me goosebumps. Hell, anything with Bidam gives me goosebumps. I love my evil, evil man! :D

Not sure how I feel about Seohwa being still alive, but the romantic triangle between her, Chil Soo, and the thief is awesome. What would Iljimae say? ;)

"Its either that or is QSD going start going downhill storywise/entertaining wise after his “early” entrance?"

See, I have the opposite reaction. I thought the story was hitting a dry patch when Deokman found out about her lineage. But I LOVED the eclipse story arc and the bijae storyline, especially how it folds back into early stuff in the QSD story. It's not so much about what they found out or the outcome, but how we learn more about Mishil's legacy and the eventual direction of Shilla.

@belleza
I kind of agree, especially since I started watching QSD for Uhm Tae-woong. UTW does an amazing job with characters that have a dark edge to them. His few scenes in QSD that were intense, especially the ones between him and Lee Ye-won worked to an extent because of him. But really, Yushin is such a boring character...and while UTW's acting decently, it does seem like there's no feeling behind it. I mean I cried buckets even when I watched DJG because of LYA, it's not the case here.

I really, really miss the younger versions of Yushin and Deokman---they were really good. LYW just doesn't have that spunky personality that the younger Deokman portrayed. With the younger Deokman, I could feel that "the heavens" were on her side...not so much with LYW. Oh well, it's still entertaining. I probably would have given up watching if it weren't for Bidam's entrance and Alcheon's extended stay.

He thinks his character is masculine? He's effeminate. Part of that is just putting on an act, of course. His real character seems to be wily and intelligent---but not masculine at all. The way he cowered from Bidam surely wasn't part of the act, was it?

the QSD storyline indeed had discrepancies but i think they didn't messed up Chun chu's age. let see...he was born when princess cheonmyeong was about 15, deokman and cheonmyeong met up when they were around 16. when sohwa died she implied that it's been 30 years had passed since that faithful night she took the twin with her so when deokman became queen she was around 30 years old. cheonmyeong died earlier than that so she would probably be around 26 - 29. so that would make chun-chu around 15 - 16 when he first showed up. the real QSD reigned for about 14 - 15 years before she died and it might be so in the series since a good deal of time had passed since her coronation and the next scene when yushin-rang was now the chief field marshal.

on the subject of marriage... i think it wasn't because she's not allowed to marry several times...because she could, it just that if she marries yushin, there are a lot of consequences. yushin-rang might have been restored as a true bone but the fact that he's ancestor was once the king of gaya, then people might use it against QSD. this drama provided a lot of twist to their story. in the end, i believe deokman both loved yushin and bidam in different ways, as it is that yushin loved deokman and bidam loved deokman as well. there are various kinds of love and that was shown in the series. deokman and yushin's encompassed a great but poignant kind of love while deoman and bidam's love is a tragic kind.

uhmm.. aya-chan,,

i think they did mess up with Chunchu's age...

Cheonmyung gave birth when she was 15 yrs old.. Deokman was officially acknowledge as a princess when she was 20 yrs old [(Queen Maya said so that 20 yrs had passed when she was like fixing Deokman's hair)] and they are twins...... Years did not pass before Chunchu's return to the palace.. His age should not be older than 10 yrs old... but it seems that he's already around 15 or 16..

@Taohua
- i agree with the Bidam and Alcheon part....
