Now that we have our hero Joo Won and our villain Park Ki-woong, upcoming sageuk action blockbuster Bridal Mask (Gaksital) is moving on to its leading lady: rookie actress Jin Sae-yeon, who is currently headlining the daily drama My Daughter Flower. You might also recognize her from smaller roles in The Duo or It’s Okay Daddy’s Girl, but overall she’s a relatively new face.
Bridal Mask is a period piece set in the 1930s, during the Japanese occupation of Korea. It’s an adaptation of a comic book about a freedom fighter who wears a bridal mask to keep his identity hidden as he fights injustice, as superheroes like to do. It doesn’t say much about the heroine, but I’m guessing she gets rescued a time or two. Let’s hope she also does a little fighting back of her own.
At the helm is PD Yoon Sung-shik (Story of a Man) along with writer Yoo Hyun-mi (Green Rose). The production boasts a 10-billion won budget, and with talented up-and-comers like Joo Won and Park Ki-woong in the lead roles, it’s gaining a lot of interest and buzz. It’s certainly the May show to beat on my excitement meter. I pretty much can’t wait to see Joo Won kickin’ ass and takin’ names.
Bridal Mask held its first script reading on the 3rd, and premieres in May on KBS.
