Why hello there, Mane of Glory! Can’t be a dashing Joseon swordsman without a matching mane of glory, of course.
We have our first look at the The Three Musketeers leads Jung Yong Hwa, Lee Jin Wook, Yang Dong Geun, Jung Hae In (as the crown prince and his three bodyguards/musketeers, based loosely on the Alexandre Dumas classic), Seo Hyun Jin and Yoo In Young in costume for their camera test along with footage from the first script reading, courtesy of tvN. The script reading was held on June 24th at CJ E&M Center in Seoul.
Everyone’s looking bright and colourful in their sageuk-wear (though I can’t say I’m too fond of that mustard yellow on Lee Jin Wook) and quite befitting their respective parts – always a relief when we have a few untested faces in a sageuk drama. I’m particularly pleasantly surprised by how much Lee Jin Wook is rocking the look; I’d harboured (quiet) worries that his face was too modern, but now I stand corrected. Yay.
The Three Musketeers is set to premiere on tvN in August.
