Chansung, Go Bo-kyul, Sohn Eun-seo join historical drama Seven Day Queen
Go Bo-kyul, Chansung, Sohn Eun-seo
A few more cast members have been confirmed for KBS’s historical drama Seven Day Queen, which will tell the story of the Joseon queen who had the shortest reign ever in its half-millennia-long history. The title character, Queen Dangyeong of the Shin clan, will be played by Park Min-young (Remember—Son’s War), while her husband King Jungjong who couldn’t protect her from dethronement will be played by Yeon Woo-jin (Introverted Boss).
Their tragic love takes place in the midst of great political upheaval and unrest due to the bloody tyranny of Jungjong’s half-brother, Yeonsangun, who will be played by Lee Dong-gun (Laurel Tree Tailors). Currently in Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People, Kim Ji-suk is killing it in the same role as a mentally unstable ruler with a mama-boy complex, so I’m excited to see how Lee Dong-gun’s portrayal will contrast. Likewise, I’m curious about how Sohn Eun-seo (Voice) will take on the role of Jang Nok-soo, Yeonsangun’s concubine and confidante, currently being played by Honey Lee in Rebel.
As Jungjong realizes that his half-brother is out of control with his cruel perversions, he sets his mind on staging a coup, and makes Myung-hae, played by Go Bo-kyul (The Lonely Shining Goblin), his political partner—she’s a shrewd young noblewoman who has lived immersed in the diplomatic world since birth because of her father.
2PM’s Chansung (Ms. Temper and Nam Jung-ki) will also play a character who supports King Jungjong in his efforts; he’ll be Jungjong’s truest friend, who has been deeply loyal to him ever since Jungjong saved his life in childhood. This project will be both Go Bo-kyul and Chansung’s first attempt at the sageuk genre.
The palace intrigue and painful romance of KBS’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama Seven Day Queen will begin on May 31.
