Following yesterday’s announcement that IU and Lee Joonki would be starring as the two main characters in the Korean verison of “Scarlet Heart“, the new drama has just released more details on the show’s lineup.
In a statement made just now, the representative said, “Kang Haneul, Jong Jonghyun, Baekhyun, Nam Joohyuk, and Jisoo have been cast in the roles of the imperial princes and sons of King Taejo, founder of the Goryeo dynasty.”
“Scarlet Heart” is a Korean adaptation of the immensely popular Chinese drama of the same name, in which a 21st century woman travels back in time hundreds of years and is forced to adapt to the historical lifestyle.
In the drama, the main female character (to be played by IU) meets and gets romantically involved with many of the imperial princes.
Baekhyun will be playing the role of the 10th prince, Wanghyun. As one of the younger princes, Wanghyun is playful and is a bit of a naughty boy, exciting fans for the EXO member’s cute but devilish role.
The drama is expected to air in the second half of 2016, so be sure to stick around moonROK in the meantime as more details are released.
