Park Eun-bin confirms Secret Door

Are we Secret Door-ed out yet? The SBS sageuk drama sure has been on a news bender lately, hasn’t it? We’ve had a bevy of casting announcements on our hands in recent days, and now the last piece of the puzzle is locked in place with Park Eun-bin (Operation Proposal; Covertly, Grandly) confirming as well.

This isn’t a surprise, since we’d already heard she was in the mix and thus far every name that was teased early on has ended up signing on (although one, Wang Bit-na, had to drop out for personal reasons). But it’s nice to finally settle on the main cast, and boy is it a good one: Han Seok-kyu plays the commanding King Yeongjo, who butts heads with his idealistic son Crown Prince Sado (Lee Je-hoon), and also clashes with Sado’s wife Hyegyeong (Park Eun-bin). Kim Min-jong plays the king’s badass killer, Seo Joon-young takes on the role of prince’s faithful friend, Kim Yoo-jung will play a fictional character who ends up in conflict with the princess, and Park Hyo-joo will play a famed gisaeng.

Secret Door will premiere in September as a Monday-Tuesday series on SBS, following Temptation.

I know right. It's too good to be just a drama with that kind of lineup.

Oh Yes. Is it September already? I'm dying to see Han Seok-kyu in another sageuk, having thoroughly enjoyed the ride of Tree with Deep Root.

Yes, Tree With Deep Roots is really good. I watched it for Song Joong Ki and stayed because Han Seok Kyu and Jang Hyuk. And now Secret Door will be on SBS too. Hope it's good.

TWDR also had solid writers and PD which really made a big difference because King Sejong's story has been done numerous times.

This writer (Yoon) also wrote another version of King Sejong (80eps) back in 2008. Her sageuks are not as mind blowing (imo) but very easy to follow if you already know the actual history. So....I'm not expecting a TWDR version of Sado. I think she will most likely stick with The Memoirs of Lady Hyegyong with a few twists here and there.

The 2008 Great King Sejong was a great traditional sageuk. If Secret Door follows The Memoirs of Lady Hyegyong, which I've read twice as a history major in university, I'm looking forward to it! Although I am bummed that Wang Bit-na won't be playing the famed gisaeng... She was great alongside Ha Ji Won in Hwang Jini, but that's a relatively minor loss.

Such a great cast! Can't wait! I thought I also saw news of Kim Chang Wan, Choi Won Young and Jang Hyun Sang. Are they confirmed too?

I actually saw this being filmed today (scenes from episode 2) at the Folk Village. I think that means I have to watch it now. They weren't filming anything major or starring the leads, but it still looks pretty epic.

I guess you saw the filming of "Sado, Memory of Eight Days" (Yoo Ah In, Song Kang Ho) - it's the movie version, not the drama, and has started filming early this month.

We learned the title because my friend snuck a peek at the script because we were standing next to the director. It was such a King of Dramas moment.
