tvN’s upcoming drama “No Touch Princess” has shared some unique new character posters!
“No Touch Princess” is a historical fusion drama about a man from modern times, whose soul is trapped in the body of a queen from the Joseon Dynasty.
True to its “historical fusion” genre, “No Touch Princess” revealed posters of the leading actors in traditional clothing, but in an “Instagram” format. Instead of “Instagram” the posters read “in-soo-ta-goo-ram”Written with Chinese characters (人手 詫 捄 覽).
Shin Hye sun‘s character is a combination of the soul of Jang Bong Hwan, a free-spirited chef who works in the Blue House, and the body of Kim So Yong, a queen who lives in the Joseon Dynasty. As the only character who knows what Instagram is, she shows a modern pose for the camera. Her headline reads, “This is going to be a shock, but try not to be too shocked. The truth is I am a man. “Her ID is fake_cowdragon,” a clue to her dual identity. (The name “So Yong” sounds like the words for “cow” and “dragon” in Korean).
Kim Jung Hyun plays King Cheoljong, who outwardly looks like a weak and ineffective king, but has a sharp and strong-willed side that he keeps hidden. He looks into the distance while his caption reads: “The Queen seems most unusual and strange. As if she came from another world. “His ID is” king_ironbell1831 “, a reference to the year of birth of the real King Cheoljong (1831) and an English play on words with the names” cheol “(iron) and” jong “(bell).
Bae Jong Ok plays Queen Sunwon, the real power behind the throne. Historically, Sunwon was the wife of a queen of a previous king, and she adopted Cheoljong when a new king had to be found. Kim tae woo plays Sunwon’s younger brother Kim Jwa Geun, who also holds the keys to power.
The Bae Jong Ok poster reads, “The reason I try to stay young and beautiful is because I will stay in power.” Kim Tae Woo’s poster says, “Instead of who we are, what matters is who we should be.” His ID “left-guen.kim” refers to “jwa” and means “left” in Korean.
A source from “No Touch Princess” states, “There will be lots of laughs and unpredictable situations that arise when a free-spirited, noisy modern man ends up in the body of a Joseon queen who leads a strict and restricted life. Please look forward to the “Soul Swap” scandal when “So Yong from Another World” brings a new touch of change to King Cheoljong’s life. ”
Premiere of “No Touch Princess” on December 12th.
