On November 14th, Lee Byung Hun’s agency BH Entertainment confirmed that the star has signed on for “King of Chosun”.
This production is based off of Mark Twain’s, “The Prince and the Pauper”, only with a historical Korean twist. Lee Byung Hun will play dual roles as ‘King Kwang Hae Goon’ and a peasant, who both look remarkably identical to one another.
At this time, there are rumors that “King of Chosun” will cast ‘Sunny‘ actress Shim Eun Kyung for one of its more substantial roles. Shim Eun Kyung, however, has yet to make an official decision as she is currently studying abroad in the States.
