Joo-won tweets from set of Bridal Mask

It’s not a lot, but I’ll take it: Here’s our first glimpse of the upcoming period drama Bridal Mask, or Gaksital, which features rising star Joo-won (Ojakkyo Brothers, Baker King Kim Tak-gu) in the lead role. He’s also the source of this photo, uploaded to his Twitter account with the caption, “While filming Bride Mask.”

The drama takes place in the 1930s during the independence movement from Japanese colonization, and Joo-won plays, essentially, an old-school secret hero. His Lee Kang-to character is your average guy in his everyday persona, but dons a mask to turn into a freedom fighter.

Bridal Mask was a buzz project even before it nailed down its cast — Joo-won, Shin Hyun-joon, Park Ki-woong, Han Chae-ah, Jin Sae-yeon — but Joo-won’s experienced a sharp rise in fame since signing on, which he can probably thank 1N2D for. In the absence of Seung-gi, the country needed a young, good-looking, competent all-around player to fall in love with, and he basically stepped right into that ready-made spot. And his adorable embracing of aegyo surely doesn’t hurt, either.

I’m sure we’ll be seeing more stills trickle from the production soon enough, though we’ve still got a month and a half till go-time. But this’ll have to do for now. Bridal Mask premieres on May 30 on KBS.

This is a drama I'm anticipating the most. Please don't disappoint. I love Park Ki-woong. I haven't seen Joo Won in anything yet but he looks pretty.

Everytime I see him, I can't help but to wonder if Kang Dong Won's already out of the army.

Haha-- he managed to snag a DB post using just a four word tweet and a selca (and of course we fangirls will eat it up). I'm really looking forward to Bridal Mask and I have high hopes for it, but I'm not counting down the days because the current Wed-Thurs line-up is keeping me contented.

Oh wow, this takes place during the 1930's? That's enough to get me interested (leaving aside Joo won for a moment :D ). I'm used to "ancient times" sageuks and "modern times" dramas -- I don't know of many that take place somewhere in between.

I know, right? The term "historical drama" makes me think of Joseon or maybe earlier Goryeo. Then I remember that duh, the twentieth century is still history.

I think the only historical drama set in that time (that I can think of) is Capital Scandal.

1930's meant Korea under the Japs, so I guess half-sageuk speek and half-modern-in-20th-century-speak... XP kinda like mashing up "Fashion '70's" and yeah, "Seoul Scandal"

a lot of poeple in this forum complain that love rain is too boring, to old, too vintage to watch because the story take place in the 70's. they want modern story. I hope this time they will be happy. It's not too old, not too vintage, the story take place in the 30's. A era of great modernity.
I know is sarcasm, sarcasm is not funny.
In a serious note bridal mask is a drama i waiting for. It's a pity jang hyuk don't play the lead but i think joo won will be great.

I didn’t realize it was Gaksital’s fault that Love Rain was boring. That's some far-reaching power.

getoba,

I'm speaking for myself and only for myself (I have no idea what other forum members think, I can't read minds)

whether it's 2012, 1970's, 1930's, 1700's, It's the drama itself that determines if I think it's boring.

And even if I think it's boring [or awesome], I'm fully aware that other might find it awesome [or boring], after all we are all humans thus have the ability to have INDIVIDUAL taste.

Wtf? Do you creep around here looking for an article you can somehow wheedle a point about Love Rain into? I didn't comment last time but c'mon. A majority aren't interested. Just go to a blog where they are and stop complaining. Please. It just puts me in a bad mood. You're not even being polite about it anymore.

Congratulations, getoba. You've managed to arouse the ire of both Javabeans AND Girlfriday with your petty needling. Everyone is entitled to express their own opinion; however, it should be done with courtesy and respect. Please take your Love Rain gripes elsewhere.

It would be funny if it weren't so annoying how some people are so personally offended if their favourite shows are not universally loved. The availability of so many varied dramas means we lucky drama watchers can pick and choose what interests us, and we can do that without complaining about other people's choices.

Looking forward to Bridal Mask!

Park Ki Woong and Joo Won. What a lovely treat.

Honestly, with Ki Woong's subtle acting skills and the way he just ~brings~ scenes, I am hoping that he'll finally have a chance to shine in the mainstream.
Joo Won already has mainstream success, so I hope this drama can develop his skills a bit more.
It'd be nice to see them compliment each other acting wise. It's an interesting, if not opposite, combination with these two. :D

YAY! Excited to see Park Ki-Woong again!! I don't think I can watch Full House so I'm just gonna skip that one and pretend it doesn't exist,lol.

And of course Joo Won. He's so good and I'm glad he's getting more popular. I'm waiting for some PD to try to get him in a drama or movie together w/Kang Don Won as twins or something.

I was taken aback by the 'moderness' of the photo and then I read 1930s and went 'Ohhhh.' I think the fact that its not set in the Joseon period is also very interesting because I'm yet to watch a sageuk that's not Joseon.

This is one I'm also anticipating. 'Joo Won' were the words that instantly sold me on it. Aside from this, I don't know what else is premiering after this current Wed-Thurs March Madness (seriously, all three have exactly 20 eps, and that's kinda genius on the competitive level), but this one will be my priority.

Technically, this drama isn't called a sageuk, although it IS a historical drama. Once you're into the 20th century you're talking about sidaegeuk, which also means period drama but is more, uh, modern historical, if that makes sense. So Light/Shadow would also be sidaeguk, not sageuk.

I believe you're right on that; it should be May 30. I'm guessing the 23rd is from before the Moon/Sun delay, after which everyone pushed back the new premieres. Somehow most articles haven't updated their information.

Gaksital with two eye candy leads without a candy-kind of drama I guess.

Two strong lead with a subtle acting. Bring it on!

Cute :-). I'm a fan of his fine acting.

How come this cute face can portray such a strong character on screen, like in his debut drama Baker King Tak Goo and recently Ojakgyo Brothers. Daebak.
