We are always on the lookout for the next show to binge-watch over weekends so consider us thrilled when the new Korean period drama, The Red Sleeve, hit the small screens in Singapore recently.
Don’t miss: 5 New Korean Shows to Watch in January 2022
The historical drama premiered on November 12 last year and just completed its 17-episode long season on January 1.
The show is based on a novel and it tells the story of a royal court romance that takes place between the King of Joseon who puts his country over his personal life and a court lady who is hellbent on protecting her own livelihood.
Tatler got the chance to chat via email with the show’s main stars, Lee Jun-Ho, Lee Se-young and Kang Hoon to find out what it was like filming the series, what their best moments were on set and what their future plans are. Read on below.
Can you tell us the funniest thing that happened on set?
Kang Hoon (KH): Back in the middle of summer, it was really hot when I was on set. With this being a historical drama, the outfit I had to wear made it really warm for me.
So every time the director shouted “cut”, the cast members would exclaim how hot they were. But when winter came, all of them were complaining about the cold.
Lee Jun-ho (LJH): It was really enjoyable to shoot with Oh Dae Hwan, who plays the role of Left Wing Wi. He came up with ad-libs while acting and it was a lot of fun to watch from the side.
