In the 1700's, Crown Prince Lee Sun (Yoo Seung-Ho) fights against Pyunsoo hwe. Pyunsoo hwe is an organization that has accumulated power and wealth through privatizing water all over Joseon. Crown Prince Lee Sun becomes a hope for the people who suffers. Ga-Eun is the woman Crown Prince Lee Sun loves and she helps him grow as a ruler.

@Go Seung Ji  Thanks for opening this thread and a very catchy title wasn't expe4cting it to be a historical drama but being the Saguek lover that I am this is a much watch for just the description sounds very interesting to watch a CP fight against and orginazation with the help of a women becomes King I find it intriging.. So I'll be pitching my tent here so bring on all the stills and aryicle I'm eagarly waiting to find out nmore..

Woohoo, now I don’t have to be sad anymore that Yoo Seung-ho (Remember–Son’s War) turned down the drama adaptation of The Man Living in Our House, because this is much, MUCH better: He’s currently considering an offer to headline a new fantasy sageuk called Ruler–Master of the Mask as a prince who battles injustice. Oh glorious mane ofglory, here we coooooome!...............

If he turned down man living in the house it was a good call I don't think that role would have fit him anyway no matter how well his acting is it's so not him especially being married to and elder woman and a loan shark no way our pretty boy face image will be ruined LOL No just kidding but I don't think the drama fits his age bracket or his looks so let him play CP..

@irilight Thanks for trhe shout out and Hello everyone, I like to send one out to @gerrytan8063  This would be a drama he also would be interested in..

Crown prince Lee Sun  was born  in 1661 and died in 1720,  he became the 19 th king of Joseon as King Sukjong.  He was considered as a skilled politician be cause he frequently changed faction in power with another one to strengthen the royal authority.    his reign is considered one of more prosperous time, according to wikipedia

Thanks @Berou  I always wish there was more of a in depth drama to YY fathers life and MBC has fullfiled my wish we get to see him grow as a CP price so looking forward more then ever now..

Soompi news :wub:

Yoo Seung Ho To Star As Just Crown Prince

In New Historical Drama

 

yoo-seung-ho.jpg

Almost a year since his last drama project “Remember,” Yoo Seung Ho will be returning to the small screen in his next lead role.

The actor is set to play Crown Prince Lee Seon in “Ruler – Master of the Mask” (tentative title), a historical melodrama that is set in the 1700s.

Fighting a lonely war against a powerful organization of the elite that’s determined to privatize the waters of Joseon, his character will become a figure of hope to the suffering people. With the help of the woman he loves, Lee Seon will overcome adversity and grow as a just ruler.

In preparation for his role, Yoo Seung Ho is reportedly working hard to understand the character, and is also strengthening his body physically as well.

The actor personally reveals, “I chose this production because I was captivated by the solid script and charismatic character of Lee Seon.” He also states that he will show sides of himself he hasn’t before, so he hopes that everyone will be excited to see what’s coming.

A source from the production team behind the drama has nothing but praise for Yoo Seung Ho’s acting ability and the upmost confidence that he will be able to pull this character off flawlessly.

Written by Park Hye Jin, “Ruler – Master of the Mask” is slated to premiere in the first half of 2017. It will begin filming in December of this year once all the roles have been cast and finalized.

What are your thoughts on Yoo Seung Ho’s newest role?

Hi, there isn't a specific moderator for each thread. There are mods for each section. I'm one of the moderators for the Kdrama and kmovies section. So I, along with the others, check on all the threads in this section. Sometimes, youll see multiple mods commenting in the same drama thread; other times, there may be only one or none. But we try to keep an eye on all. 

Feel free to PM me anytime if you have any other queries :)

Could "Ga-Eun" possibly be Jang Ok-Jung?. Could "Ga-Eun" possible be Jang Ok-Jung name before she came in the palace?. If I'm not mistaken, this king's love of his life was concubine Jang Ok-Jung. History says that she was the most beautiful lady of Joseon. She's not just a beautiful lady of her time, but she was the most beautiful lady of the whole entire Joseon period.

@ddeokbokkii i've  thought about this possibility too. since it is a fantasy drama, they may not strictly follow the historical events and put some new elements. However, i'm going  to wait for further info before making my judgement.

Moreover, Jang Ok Jung is a controversial historical figure , some  dramas portray her as  someone who is a victim and innocent, other portray her as someone who is cunning  (she was known for her greed for power ).

I'm not Korean, so I don't know much about Korean history. I'm just guessing at this point. Hopefully, someone with more knowledge of Korean history can shed some light on this mysterious character(Ga-Eun).

@ddeokbokkii @Berou up till now, we are actually not that 100% sure about Which king exactly is Lee Sun (or Lee Seon), as not enough confirmation and clear info given in official write-out about the king. Let's just take it that it is the King Sukjong of Joseon, the 19th king. His history background and Family tree are splendidly explained by Berou. Say if the King's identity is confirmed, but what about that Woman behind him Ga-Eun? is it totally fictional or just using dramatic liberty to add fake back-stories to some real consort's true story? They just like to take the liberty in adding cheesy romantic lines, adding dramatic stuffs, which is way better than twisting the actual history, as long as they don't twist history, we are all fine with it. If its Sukjong, then Yoo Seung ho will have a hard time making his Crown Prince uniquely his own. because Sukjong was portrayed in ways too many korean dramas before this.

list of Korea Dramas that are involved with King Sukjong are:

(cr. .wikipedia.org/wiki/Sukjong_of_Joseon)

 Sukjong's women are as famous as himself, in fact he had quite a collection of outstanding women, So Which concubine / Queen of Sukjong:

1) Royal Noble Consort Suk of the Haeju Choe clan (숙빈 최씨)
the most notable drama portrayal were 'Dong Yi' (Han Hyojoo), in which (portrayed by Ji Jin-hee ) King Sukjong's most respected woman is Dongyi herself, who is actually Suk-Bin Choe. Being a royal concubine who bears a son (future King Yeongjo), which became the later grandfather of Yi San. (King Yi San which is portrayed by another drama "Yi San" ( portrayed by Lee Seo-jin).) Suk-bin Choi openly supported Queen Inhyeon and was against Jang Hui-bin (who history remembers as an evil and cruel woman.) It is also SukBin Choi who help to exposed Jang Hui bin later. A Strong and intelligent lady.

2) Queen Inhyeon of the Yeoheung Min clan (인현왕후 민씨)
everyone who watch Drama "Queen In-hyun's Man", will always remember this saeguk supernatural fictional-plot love story, well this Queen Inhyeon (portrayed by Yoo In-na ). The Second queen of Sukjong, in fact known as one of the Best known Joseon Queens, during the rising of consort Jang Ok-jeong.  Inhyeon was desposed, and her family were exiled. She died young of unknown illness, leaving no issue to Sukjong. This is not a Queen well loved by Sukjong, while she is famous, and well known in virtues,  A virtuous & respected lady.

3) Jang Hui-Bin,  Royal Noble Consort Hui of the Indong Jang clan (희빈 장씨)
( i pray that it is not this one). She was known for her greed for power as a queen, as much as her beauty (famed as the most beautiful Woman of her times). Jang Ok-jeong who produced a son, and psycho the King into making her a Hui-bin, from a lower Su-bin, then proceed to be the 3rd Queen Consort. She single handedly cause an infamous blood-bath event, (including first causing Queen Inhyeon to be disposed which later on reinstated, and finally linked to Queen Inhyeon's unknown cause of death, evidences found including Shamanist priestesses in her chambers . Most of history and drama depict her as scheming and , Even though only one drama 'Jang Ok-jung, Living by Love', acted by Kim Tae-hee, suppoed to white-Paint her as a victim instead of an antagonist.   She beared the Crown Prince Yi Yun, which later became King Gyeongjong. Just hope that no matter how beautiful she is, i don't think she deserved to be that "Ga-Eun"... her name is Jang Ok-Jeong, Nothing close to 'Ga-Eun'.

or, Yoo's character is Not King Sukjong.
(just spirited to do some reading on Sukjong. For me, beside the millions dollars question of "Who play Ga-Eun as loveline of Yoo?" i guess, the character of that Female lead is who? that role must be someone virtuous, sassy and witty, ardently supportive, all in one.. whatever, but cannot be a character that turn antagonist later on. they better write the character Ga-Eun well, else its hard to feel chemistry in having not able to like the female lead.)

(i have been watching saeguk dramas for a while, i liked the scene where Crown princes were persecuted by the Much Younger Queen step-mother. i liked scenes, where princes show teeths and craws... then in the night sneaks out palace or into moonlid garden to look at his one true love, a woman of lower rank who cannot be accepted as even consort (concubine) yet. Like Ga-eun to be a strong, witty, patient, trusting woman that stand as the tree that don't mind hid in his secret garden, yet can shelter his storm, grow tall branches that help him to climb high up to view over the rooftop to look out outside world, to wipe his royal tears which non of his subjects can see, to let the prince shown weakness and be himself to one person only in the world. .

Yoo will be such a powerful crown prince... did we not seen his icy eyes in Warriror Baek Dong soo, did we not see his passionate eyes in I missed you... did we not seen his teary eyes in Remember.... i want him to be merciless, forlorn and agonised at the swtich of a scene.. Yoo can do it.

"Yoo Seung Ho's role is that of Crown Prince Lee Seon who battles a lonely war against a powerful organization of elites that wants to place control in private hands the control over the waters of Joseon. A woman whom the prince loves would help him become a figure of hope to people oppressed by the organization of elites in overcoming adversity and becoming a just ruler, according to Soompi.

The role required Yoo Seung Ho to strengthen his body physically and acquire a good understanding of the character he would play. Among the offers that came his way, the actor said he chose the production after he was captivated by the solid script and charismatic personality of the prince. The other title being considered for the period drama is “Monarch: Owner of the Mask,” Allkpop reported."
