Ji Chang Wook who is cast as Yuan Dynasty’s Emperor Huizong, also showed great passion towards acting.
Director Han Hee expressed, “I hope everyone will put safety as their topmost priority during filming, and prevent any mishaps from happening. For period productions, the chemistry between the cast members are really important. I hope everyone can memorize their lines well, and allow viewers to naturally accept period productions as a genre.”
‘Empress Ki’ will be 50 episodes long and will depict the loves and battles of Empress Ki who is from Goryeo, but later moves to the Mongol capital and exercises her influence in the Yuan Dynasty. The drama will be written by scriptwriters Jang Young Cheol and Jung Kyung Soon who had previously worked together on ‘Giant’, ‘History of the Salaryman’, and ‘Incarnation of Money’.
