TVXQ! member and actor Jung Yunho is burning with motivation and desire in his first historical drama.
Jung Yunho plays as a martial official and the best swordsman in Chosun, Mu Suk, in MBC’s all new TV series, Diary of a Night Watchman.
In the drama, Mu Suk guards Prince Lee Lin (starring Jeong Il Woo), the legal prince of the queen and king, but also rivals with him for a love relationship with Do Ha (starring Go Sung Hee). The prince is nicknamed as the ‘Ice Handsome Man’ for his popularity among women. However, the prince does not show his attention towards them and keeps his cold smile.
Jung Yunho showed his affection to his character in the film and expressed, “I was captivated by Mu Suk, who has much loyalty to people and nation. His loyalty and seriousness in every task were impressive, and the similarity between him and me is interesting.”
He continued, “There are many action scenes, so I expect I can show some different appearance.”
Today, the production company Remongrein conveyed, “Jung Yunho shows unusual affection to his character. He spends a lot of time in practice to express the character more charming in action scenes like horse riding and wielding a sword.”
Netizens who saw the news reacted, “Diary of a Night Watchman‘s Jung Yunho, Oppa, You’re acting again?”. Others said, “Diary of a Night Watchman‘s Jung Yunho, this time it’s a historical drama” and “Diary of a Night Watchman‘s Jung Yunho, when is the first episode?”
Diary of a Night Watchman is a fantasy-romance action story of three different forces; one that denies ghosts, another that wants to take advantage of ghosts, and the other that tries to defeat ghosts with Chosun as the background. The first episode will be broadcast on MBC on August 4.
