'My Sassy Girl' Reboot: SBS Releases Teaser Poster; My Sassy Girl To Hold Presscon Before Joo Won Enlists For Mandatory Service
The historical reboot of “My Sassy Girl” will come out this month and production has released the first teaser poster of the series. The drama is set to air this May on SBS and will replace the drama “Whisper” for the Monday and Tuesday timeslot when the drama ends.
According to the report by Drama Beans, MY Sassy Girl promises to be a hilarious romcom based on the teaser. Based on the teaser, the main characters were described as “Gyun-woo, the man with the best specs in Joseon!” and “A bright, sassy woman who is the headache of the royal palace!”
The historical remake of the 2001 contemporary hit which originally starred Jun Ji Hyun and Cha Tae Hyun, will take place in the Joseon Dynasty and will be top-billed by “Yong Pal” star Joo Won who will play the role of Gyun Woo, a brilliant scholar who is a bit aloof but is well loved by the people. “Shine or Go Crazy” actress Oh Yeon Seo will play the role of Princess Hyemyung, a feisty and sassy princess who will cause many headaches not for Gyun Woo but also or the entire palace staff. CNBlue’s Lee Lee Jung Shin will play the part of an aristocrat who will be Gyun Woo’s eventual rival for the princess’ heart, Kpopstarz reported.
Meanwhile, “My Sassy Girl” will be Joo Won’s final project before he enlists for mandatory military service. The actor’s agency Huayi Brothers has confirmed that Joo Won will be enlisting on May 16 after he received the official letter, All Kpop reported.
“I will be enlisting on May 16. I don’t know if I’ll be able to greet you again before then… but it’s okay,” “My Sassy Girl” actor Jon Woo said to his fans. “I will be going to the army, where all men born in South Korea must go.”
“My Sassy Girl” will reportedly have a press conference on May 15 prior to Jon Woo’s military enlistment and the drama’s airing. SBS has yet to release the official air date of the series.
