…and that is just about all I can tell you about that. Not because there’s any big secret involved with MBC’s upcoming May Queen, or any intrigue and mystery, but because that’s pretty much the only info that’s been released by Han’s management to the press today.
So naturally that leaves us with lots of questions, first and foremost being, What is it about? And will she be a literal queen, or a figurative one? And why’s she a May queen if the drama airs in August?
It’ll be Han’s first project in a year, since starring in last year’s sageuk The Duo. Directing is PD Baek Ho-min, who did makjang extravaganza Flames of Ambition and weekend family drama Assorted Gems. Which… doesn’t tell me much about this show, since those were two pretty disparate projects; one was all about twisted families and messed-up relationships, and the other was funny and warm. This could swing either way, or maybe a new direction entirely. We’ll just have to speculate for now.
(Side note: What a terrible way to announce/promote a drama. Who cares about a show before knowing anything about it? Weaksauce all around.)
The drama was initially supposed to have followed Feast of the Gods, but production was delayed thanks to the MBC labor strike. Perhaps that explains the May part of the title, which sounds better than August Queen. (Or does it?)
May Queen follows Dr. Jin on weekends.
