Lee Tae Ri will be joining the cast of the upcoming KBS 2TV drama “Red Heart” (literal title)!
On March 1, the actor’s agency Starhaus Entertainment officially confirmed that Lee Tae Ri will be appearing in “Red Heart.”
“Red Heart” is a fictional historical drama about Lee Tae, who becomes the king of Joseon and dreams of absolute monarchy. Lee Joon, Kang Han Na, and Jang Hyuk were previously confirmed to star in the drama.
Lee Joon has been cast as Lee Tae, who aims to strengthen his authority by getting rid of Park Kye Won and his subjects. Lee Tae is a person who thinks any action is justifiable to achieve his goal, and fans are already looking forward to how Lee Joon will express his character’s emotional lines as he fiercely fights for power.
Kang Han Na has been offered the role of Yoo Jung, a free-spirited woman who Lee Tae falls in love with. Lee Tae picks Yoo Jung as his crown princess, causing a troublesome situation for his family, and he is forced to make a choice between the one he loves and his family’s plans for revenge.
Jang Hyuk will take on the role of Park Kye Won, who will be involved in intense conflict with Lee Tae. Park Kye Won is a living symbol of power and a figure that everyone obeys. He is a “king maker” who resolves to “create a wise and young king with his own hands” so that the foundation of Joseon will not be shaken by tyrants again.
Lee Tae Ri will transform into Park Nam Sang, the only son of Park Kye Won. Park Nam Sang was raised with high expectations, and he is an up right character with gentleness and integrity who walks the path of a scholar. He will become part of the Saheonbu (an investigative government office), and it will be interesting to see how his role impacts the story development.
Lee Tae Ri has impressed with his diverse roles in many projects, including JTBC’s “Beauty Inside,” MBC’s “Extraordinary You,” and tvN’s “Tale of the Nine-Tailed.” Fans can look forward to his transformation in “Red Heart,” which is set to air in the first half of 2022.
