Shin Hye-sun as the shocked Queen Cheorin in new tvN drama

The first teaser has been dropped for upcoming gender-bender comedy sageuk Queen Cheorin. It’s not very long, but Shin Hye-sun’s (Angel’s Last Mission: Love) expressions are so funny as the titular body-swapped queen.

The plot of this fusion drama is centered around an accident wherein a present-day male chef working at the Blue House (a.k.a. Korea’s presidential residence) somehow goes back in time and enters the body of a Joseon-era queen.

How will his bluffing, independent personality survive in the restrictive palace with its suffocating rules and procedures? Especially since “his” husband King Cheoljong, played by Kim Jung-hyun (Crash Landing on You), is a suspicious, two-faced puppet ruler, it’ll be difficult to maintain the facade that nothing is wrong.

In the teaser, Shin Hye-sun plays the surprised chef-turned-queen perfectly. The teaser starts out with heavy breathing in pitch blackness, and Shin Hye-sun tries to start a light. At the sound of her own lilting voice, her inner male soul is surprised.

She finally succeeds in lighting the candle, and a servant from outside calls to her: “Your Majesty, have you awoken?” Looking at the mirror, Shin Hye-sun lets out a gasp of surprise. Copy onscreen reads: “After opening his eyes, he was queen?!” She sits completely upright and checks inside her clothes. Her inner male voice is unbelieving: “Your Majesty? I’m a girl?!” Her servant’s voice begs for her again, “Your Majesty…”

tvN Saturday-Sunday drama Queen Cheorin, directed by Yoon Sung-shik (Hwarang, The King’s Face) and written by Park Gye-ok (Doctor Prisoner, Inspiring Generation) and Choi Ah-il (Lovers of Six Years), will begin airing in December.

I somehow missed that this was going to be a comedy. I really wanted to see SHS in a dark role/show 😪

Apparently this will also be a romance and I'm curious how well will that work and if they will use the ending from the novel or Chinese drama or come up with a new one. I wont be watching the drama but will keep an eye on recaps.

Seems cute, though I was hoping for it to be of a more serious tone because Shin hye sun has the ability to make tragedy seem more tragic and tragedy suits historical dramas.

As wacky as the premise sounds, I adore her and will watch anything this woman is in. Sign me up! (well, for the first few episodes at least)

I loved this show and I'm in because I felt that quick 15 sec. teaser was amazing and completedly funny. I knew that fusion sageuk was like either modern-meets-Joseon-era comedy, Sweet Munchies-meets-fantasy-comedy-with-Joseon-type or the new Secret Garden. I also felt it looks like gay-related comedy-fantasy show that I'm looked forward because I wondered if Kim Jung-hyun will wear a lot of wigs (mostly wore during Joseon era) and even female sageuk costumes that fitted well for him. The last gay-related K-drama was Sweet Munchies (a food drama that aired earlier this year). My fingers crossed into December!

I will watch because both leads are talented and Shin Hye Sun elevates everything she is in. I haven't the faintest how this is going to work though.

Shin Hyesun is an unacknowledged goddess, I'll try out anything she's in. And this sounds silly and funny, just what I need right now
