It’s a match made in heaven in new Queen Cheorin teaser
The third teaser for tvN’s fusion sageuk-comedy drama Queen Cheorin has been released. It features its two leads with Shin Hye-sun (Angel’s Last Mission: Love) playing the titular queen and Kim Jung-hyun (Crash Landing on You) as her two-faced husband and the King Cheoljong of Joseon.
When an unfortunate accident occurs, a blustering chef in the 21st century somehow travels through time and wakes up in the body of the Joseon-era Queen Cheorin. The recently released teaser shows a snapshot of the comedic hijinks that ensue when the queen’s body is overtaken by the male chef’s soul, unbeknownst to her king.
From across the hallway, King Cheoljong notices Queen Cheorin coming toward him. She begins running in his direction, and her attendants gasp in shock at their queen’s sudden lack of decorum and call out to stop her. Shin Hye-sun runs right through the onscreen copy which says: “A match made in heaven.”
Believing that her actions are due to her eagerness to see him, King Cheoljong blushes bright red and shyly opens his arms to receive her. She also opens her arms wide, as he narrates: “A match made in heaven. Even after thinking it over a ten million times, I’m always surprised. She is definitely…”
However, he trails off as she brushes right past him to grab the bottle of wine being carried by one of his maids. She exclaims with excitement, and gives her thumbs-up for the alcohol: “Wild ginseng wine, oh yeah!” King Cheoljong’s expression falters, and he finishes his thought internally: “… something from another world?” Queen Cheorin gives him a light punch, as she impertinently says, “What are you staring at?” In the last sound bite, Queen Cheorin’s lady-in-waiting whispers, “Your Majesty, you can’t…”
Though both Queen Cheorin and King Cheoljong were real figures in Korean history, it seems pretty obvious that there will be lots of creative liberties taken when it comes to history versus drama. They lived during a period full of intrigue, scheming, and sad events, so it will be interesting to see what makes it from real life onto the small screen.
tvN’s Queen Cheorin will begin airing on December 12; it will be directed by Yoon Sung-shik (Hwarang) with Park Kye-ok (Doctor Prisoner) and Choi Ah-il (Lovers of Six Years) penning the script.
