I don't think the drama will get postponed. There aren't any news about that. I just think they take precautions as quickly as possible when someone is tested positive. I think as soon as the tests come in negative they will start filming again. :D

Shin Hye Sun Transforms Into Eccentric Queen For Upcoming Drama “Mr. Queen”

Nov 25, 2020

tvN’s new drama “Mr. Queen” has released a new glimpse of Shin Hye Sun in her starring role!

“Mr. Queen” is a historical fusion drama about a man from modern times whose soul gets trapped in the body of a queen from the Joseon dynasty.

Shin Hye Sun stars as Kim So Yong, the queen with the soul of Jang Bong Hwan trapped inside her. Kim Jung Hyun takes the role of King Cheoljong, who seems like a weak and ineffective king but has a sharp and strong-willed side that he keeps hidden.

In the newly released stills, Shin Hye Sun turns into Kim So Yong, a character who is in the wrong body at the wrong time period. She is no ordinary queen, and she isn’t afraid to hide her true self. Her eyes are bold with modern-day charisma, and she does various odd things that raises eyebrows.

I don't think they will postpone the premiere of the drama. KJH had an Instagram Live  session around Oct. 25, 2020 and said that they were halfway through filming at that point and the drama was scheduled to wrap in December 2020.  That was a month ago, so I think they are probably 70-75% through filming before having to halt. If the production team was already halfway through filming as of Oct 25, then they have definitely finished filming through Ep. 10 by now for sure.  I'm not sure what the filming schedule is like these days with the COVID rules.  If they are filming 1 episode a week, then they are probably working on Ep. 14 before the shutdown.  I would think that they probably have the first half of the drama finished in post production and ready for broadcast so that gives them a pretty good cushion to work on the last 10 episodes.

Watch: Shin Hye Sun Gets On Kim Jung Hyun’s Nerves In Comedic “Mr. Queen” Teasers

 

tvN’s upcoming drama “Mr. Queen” has shared its main posters along with fun “moving poster” teasers!

 

“Mr. Queen” is a historical fusion drama about a man from modern times whose soul gets trapped in the body of a queen from the Joseon dynasty. Shin Hye Sun stars as Kim So Yong, the queen with the soul of Jang Bong Hwan trapped inside her. Kim Jung Hyun will be King Cheoljong, who seems like a weak and ineffective king but has a sharp and strong-willed side that he keeps hidden.

 

On November 24, tvN gave a closer look at the two stars in hilarious new teasers.

 

In the main posters, Kim So Yong and King Cheoljong spend time in their own rooms, and their ways of having fun are completely different. Kim So Yong, who has the energetic soul of a modern-day man trapped inside her, practices her boxing moves while King Cheoljong tries to enjoy a snack. The text on the posters appropriately reads, “The guy from that world becomes a queen in this world?!”

The accompanying moving poster showcases the pair’s entertaining interaction as Kim So Yong steals King Cheoljong’s cookie and knocks another one out of his hand.

 

In another poster, King Cheoljong sits quietly while working on his calligraphy. On the other hand, Kim So Yong reads a magazine with a title that references Playboy magazine. The moving poster highlights the two polar opposites as Kim So Yong begins to get on King Cheoljong’s nerves, hinting at what kind of relationship they will form in the upcoming drama.

The production team commented, “Queen Kim So Yong, who has a ‘problematic’ soul within her, and the secretive King Cheoljong will bring never-before-seen kinds of entertainment to viewers through a bizarre story of surviving in the palace that unfolds as they meet each other. Please look forward to it.”

 

“Mr. Queen” premieres on December 12 at 9 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.

@sw33tm3lody agreed with you :)

 

Personal opinion I think the news that this drama was from the original 'Go Princess Go' may give some misleading ideas and too much worried about the sexual aspect. 

 

Instead of using the word 'remake' , I think it should be more considered as an 'adaptation of' or 'inspired by' the original drama.  I have confidence that this Korean version will be much better and it will not much focus on sexual elements, instead it will give a feeling of 'cute+funny' rather than 'sexy+disgusting' like some fans are being worried. The reason I can think of are

  • The character of the modern man whose soul was trapped in Queen's body.  The Korean version change the role from a playboy to a Blue House's chef.  So I think rather than spending time chasing court ladies like the original, we may see more of cooking scenes from So-Yong. And don't forget Kim In-Kwon will play the role of Royal chef, there must be funny scenes of him bickering with So-Yong about cooking. 
  • They also change the role of the Queen's maid from young lady to middle age Sanggung. From the teaser we can see that this gave us more feeling of funny/comdey rather than sexy role like the original. So we may not see much of flirting scene between So-Yong and her maid ladies.
  • The way they use real historical figures and actual time in this drama instead of just making up like some drama (e.g. 'Kingdom') . I think it's a hint that the story will be also about the political conflict and there will be more serious part.
  • The writer's name. I don't think the famous writer like him will throw away his reputation by writing the absurd comedy. 
  • The production team of tvN, Studio dragon, YG compared to low-budget original drama. As we saw lots of leaked shooting photo earlier, the production teams travelled to many places to shoot this drama. They spent 8 months shooting from Spring, Summer to Autumn, so we can surely see lots of beautiful scenes from different seasons. And the costumes, from the teaser, wow...the queen's hanbok is very beautiful. 
  • This drama will be aired internatinally , not like the original that was internet/web drama. So the content can't be focus to much on sexual or dirty scenes.
  • And the most important reason is the actors.  If the script is not good, why those good actors agreed to be in this drama ? And why will tvN make it 20 episodes if the drama story just telling about sexual or BL scenes ?

 

 

From all above points, so now I'm more than ready to watch this drama.

Fighting 'No Touch Princess'

 

 :hwaiting:

 

Thank you for message! I'm also feeling quite nervous about those articles but so excited for this drama. Now I'm also more than ready to watch and support this drama. "No Touch Princess", fighting!!!!!

Kim Jung Hyun Talks About His Multifaceted Character And Acting In Historical Fusion Drama “Mr. Queen”

tvN’s new Saturday-Sunday drama “Mr. Queen” revealed new glimpses of Kim Jung Hyun’s character!

“Mr. Queen” is a historical fusion drama about a man from modern times whose soul gets trapped in the body of a queen from the Joseon dynasty. Shin Hye Sun takes the role of Kim So Yong, the queen with the soul of Jang Bong Hwan trapped inside her. Kim Jung Hyun plays King Cheoljong, who seems like a weak and ineffective king but has a sharp and strong-willed side that he keeps hidden.

The newly released photos show King Cheoljong reading among the cherry blossoms with perfect posture. Then for an unknown reason, he is up and ready to take on a fight. However, his awkward stance doesn’t make him seem like a big threat.

But at night, his playful side is nowhere to be seen. Instead, he has a stone-cold expression and creates a sense of tension. There is much to be uncovered about his true self and why he continues to keep this act up.

 

Regarding the series, Kim Jung Hyun commented, “It was interesting idea for a modern day man to find himself in the body of a Joseon dynasty queen.” On his character, he said, “King Cheoljong is someone who is both naive and cool-headed.”

Wikipedia is not the place for 100% accurate information but at least it give us rough summary about about King Cheoljong (Kim Jung Hyun's character) in real history.

 

Cheoljong of Joseon

 

Cheoljong of Joseon (25 July 1831 – 16 January 1864) was the 25th king of the Joseon Dynasty of Korea. He was a second cousin to the heirless Heonjong of Joseon, as well as a great-great grandson of Yeongjo of Joseon.

 

Early life

He was born as the 3rd and youngest son of Yi Gwang, Prince Jeon'gye-gun (who died in 14 December 1841), and his 1st concubine Lady Yeom, in Ganghwa. His name was originally Yi Won-beom (이원범), but upon ascending the throne his name was legally changed to Yi Byeon (이변) (or Seong).

 

In 1841, the 10th year of King Heonjong's reign, seeking to take advantage of Heonjong's lack of heirs, Min Jin-yong (of the Noron faction), Lee Won-deok, Park Sun-su and others secretly conspired a rebellion to enthrone Yi Won-gyeong, Yi Gwang's firstborn son as well as only legitimate child, as the next king. However, Min Jin-yong's rebellion was exposed and along with Yi Won-gyeong were executed. By dint of guilt by association, Yi Won-gyeong's half brothers Yi Gyeong-eung and Yi Won-beom were exiled to Ganghwa.

 

Background

At the beginning of the 19th century, the Andong Kim clan, who had provided the Joseon state with several queens, had seized power almost everywhere in Korea. The social stagnation that resulted was a breeding ground for unrest. Corruption and embezzlement from the treasury and its inevitable exploitation were taken to extreme levels, and reached staggering proportions. One rebellion after another was accompanied by natural disasters.

 

The only aim of the Andong Kim clan was the preservation of their influence. Their fierce campaign to dominate the royal house had led to a situation in which almost all of the representatives of the royal family fled from Seoul. When the royal family produced intelligent and appropriate candidates for the accession, they were either accused of treason and executed or sent into exile, so when Heonjong died, leaving no son, no acceptable candidate could be found to succeed to the throne.

 

Reign

Cheoljong ascended to the throne in 1849 at the age of 19 after King Heonjong died without an heir. As a distant relative of both the recently deceased king as well as a descendant of King Yeongjo, Cheoljong was selected for adoption by the Senior Dowager Queen (King Sunjo's widow) at the time and to allow him to ascend to the throne. The future Cheoljong was found on Ganghwa Island where his family had been in exile since the Catholic Persecution of 1801.

 

When the envoys (dispatched in order to seek for the future king) arrived on Ganghwa Island, they found the exiled remnants of the royal clan barely surviving in wretched poverty, and in the midst of that degradation, 19-year old Yi Won-beom was proclaimed King. Though from the start of the Joseon Dynasty Korean kings had given top priority to the education of their sons, Cheoljong could not even read a single word on the notice delivering congratulations to him on his elevation to the royal throne.

 

For the Andong Kims, Cheoljong was an excellent choice. His illiteracy made him manipulable and vulnerable to their control. Proof of this was that even though Cheoljong ruled the country for 13 years, until his very last days he had not yet learned how to move with dignity or how to wear royal clothes, so that in even the most luxurious of robes he still looked like a fisherman.

As part of the Andong Kim's manipulation of Cheoljong, in 1851, the clan married Cheoljong to Kim Mun-geun's daughter, known posthumously as Queen Cheor'in.

 

Death

Cheoljong died at the age of 32 in 16 January 1864 (by suspected foul play by the Andong Kim clan, the same clan which made him king), without any surviving male heirs. Once again, it became necessary to search far back in the Yi lineage to find a candidate for the throne.

Watch: “Mr. Queen” Cast Enjoys Joking Around Behind The Scenes For Posters And Teasers

 

The upcoming tvN drama “Mr. Queen” has shared a behind-the-scenes look at the cast as they gear up for the drama!

 

“Mr. Queen” is a historical fusion drama about a man from modern times whose soul gets trapped in the body of a queen from the Joseon dynasty. Shin Hye Sun stars as Kim So Yong, the queen with the soul of Jang Bong Hwan trapped inside her. Kim Jung Hyun will be King Cheoljong, who seems like a weak and ineffective king but has a sharp and strong-willed side that he keeps hidden.

 

The video begins with Shin Hye Sun filming her teaser. Although she tries to remain still during filming, she can’t help but sway to the beat of the energetic music in the background. She also enjoys Cha Chung Hwa‘s enthusiastic lip syncing performance, which sends both of them into a fit of laughter.

 

Kim Jung Hyun then films his own teaser, charismatically removing the cloth on his face and brandishing his sword. While waiting for the next take, he shows off his lighthearted aura as he plays around with the props on set and pretends to lift weights.

 

Next, Kim Jung Hyun and Shin Hye Sun film their teaser together, and Shin Hye Sun asks if it’s okay to hit his arm even though he’s the king. Kim Jung Hyun makes the staff burst into laughter when he nonchalantly says, “Yes, it’s usually okay to do that.”

 

While filming the scene, Shin Hye Sun hits him on the shoulder once, and then once again even though the director had already said, “Okay.” Kim Jung Hyun is shocked, and Shin Hye Sun laughs as she explains, “I thought he said, ‘Okay,’ because your expression was good.”

 

Next up, Shin Hye Sun, Kim Jung Hyun, Bae Jong Ok, and Kim Tae Woo create a lively atmosphere as they pose for their individual posters. Shin Hye Sun shows off the blank pages of her book, joking, “They should have put a cell phone or something in here.” As Kim Jung Hyun strikes a pose, the staff comment excitedly, “Oh, that’s deadly!” which makes him embarrassed.

 

Bae Jong Ok then observes herself in the mirror and smiles as she primly remarks, “I’m satisfied.” Finally, as Kim Tae Woo gets ready for his photo shoot, he jokes to the staff, “When we’re filming, please ask the director why I’m the only one who looks mean in this comedy drama.” The video comes to an end as the cast get together to take pictures for the group poster.

 

Check out the video below!

“Mr. Queen” premieres on December 12 at 9 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
