Kim Min-jong joins Secret Door as cold-blooded killer

Oppa as a stone-cold killer? No one will believe it! SBS’s upcoming mystery sageuk Secret Door about the life and death of Crown Prince Sado continues to cast exceptionally, with Han Seok-kyu (Tree With Deep Roots) leading the ensemble as King Yeongjo of Joseon, Park Eun-bin (Operation Proposal) considering the role of Princess Hyegyeong, and now Kim Min-jong (A Gentleman’s Dignity), who’s joining the cast as a sword-wielding killer. Now if a fresh-out-of-army Lee Je-hoon (Fortune Tellers) will just sign on the dotted line to play Sado, all will be well with the world.

The 24-episode historical thriller comes from the writer of The Immortal Lee Soon-shin and Hwang Jini and the PD of Ghost and Suspicious Housekeeper, and tells the tragic story of the fraught relationship between King Yeongjo and his son Crown Prince Sado, whom he sentenced to death at the age of 27. The palace mystery will detail the circumstances of Sado’s death, which remains one of the saddest and most troubling riddles in Joseon’s history.

Kim Min-jong has joined the cast as a cold-blooded killer with an unexpected soft side. He’s the most skilled fighter in the country and is famously known as the Prince of the Night. But at the same time he’s also described as someone who’s “as innocent as a fan of romance novels.” A badass assassin who swoons at romance and believes in true love? Pitter-patter. If he’s even half as adorable as his shy romantic policeman in The Return of Iljimae, I’ll be a goner.

Secret Door follows Temptation on Mondays and Tuesdays in September.

“as innocent as a fan of romance novels”

What kind of romance novel is that, I wonder....

I'm already excited to see him play badass warrior and fanboy ahjusshi in one. I've seen him do both in separate shows and variety appearances. I wonder how they're going to mix it smoothly in one character this time?

I suppose they mean the Jane Austen/Georgette Heyer variety of romance novels, not the more.......shall we say modern things we know as romance novels.

That's great news, I miss watching him in dramas. And I would believe him as a killer in the Joseon era, because in the sagueks that I've seen, most people (other than the hero and heroine) look shifty and have no problems plotting murders or carrying them out. At least Oppa's character has a heart (figuratively).

Don`t be so sure, people saying they won`t be watching Nodame cause of Yoona are gonna be the first in line to watch it. And Joo Won has excellent record with KBS , his dramas are always hits.

The ratings also depend on how well the drama before them does.

So it can go both ways.

Ooooo I love the sound of this role and I love him. I rewatch Return of Iljimae just as much for him as I do for Jung Il-woo. I'm so excited for this drama, it just keeps getting better!

Omg, yes!!! Can Lee Je Hoon just confirm so that I can officially say that this is the most anticipated drama of the year for me? Superb casting and consideration so far. With a story as rich as this, I can only imagine great things if these actors are set. Gah, I'm happy. :)

I so love the casts... Han Seok Kyu will be amazing king and KMJ will be amazing soft-hearted assassin. LOL

This drama better be amazing with the story. No offense to anyone, but I hate Hwang Jin Yi's writer with passion. She ruined the second half of the drama for me. I never watch Immortal Lee Soon Shin so I don't know the story, but I suffered watching HJY.
