The TV drama, based on the eponymous Chinese novel, centers on Goryeo emperor Wang Geon’s fourth son Wang So, played by Lee, and Hae-soo, a girl who travels through time to the kingdom from the 21st century, played by IU.
Girls’ Generation member Seohyun is also among the cast, playing Woo-hee, the last princess of the Later Baekje Kingdom (892-936). She becomes a palace gisaeng (courtesan) after the collapse of the dynasty.
“Scarlet Heart: Ryeo,” a totally preproduced TV drama, will air in the second half of the year.
