Lee Yu Bi, Jeong Hye Sung In Talks For “Joseon Exorcist” Opposite Jang Dong Yoon
Actresses Lee Yu Bi And Jeong Hye Sung have been casted for upcoming sageuk, Joseon Exorcist (working title). Representatives have reported that the two have been confirmed for the drama, although their respective agencies have responded saying that they are positively confirming the casting.
Actors Jang Dong Yoon, Park Sung Hoon, Kim Dong Jun and Kam Woo Sung have all confirmed their appearance in the drama as well, with Jang Dong Yoon as the male lead. Jang Dong Yoon is set to appear as the crown prince that tries to protect his citizens from the undead that are being raised by Western exorcists that seek to take over the kingdom.
This is not the first sageuk for them – Jang Dong Yoon rose to fame with The Tales of Nokdu, while Jeong Hye Sung appeared in Love in the Moonlight. Lee Yu Bi also acted in The Scholar That Walks The Night, a fantasy sageuk about a vampire king that tries to take over the throne. Arguably, this is the most similar to the upcoming Joseon Exorcist.
Not much else is known about the drama, although it will be aired some time next year.
