Actor Yoo Seung Ho is courted as the lead in an upcoming fantasy sageuk drama ‘Ruler – Master of the Mask‘.
The drama will be about an 18-century Joseon prince who becomes a hero, fighting against a shadowy organisation that wields power behind the scenes. The project will be fully pre-produced and currently doesn’t have a broadcast network, but aims for an early 2017 release.
Yoo Seung Ho already has a lot of sageuk dramas under his belt, he looks gorgeous in sageuk costumes and exhibits royal charisma like no other. He is a brilliant actor, who always picks his projects if they challenge or intrigue him – a fine example is the hit drama ‘Warrior Baek Dong Soo‘ where he was offered the lead but instead chose to play the second lead, because it was more dark, complicated and intriguing character.
This is just one of the many projects the actor is reviewing, as he recently turned down the lead for MBC’s drama ‘The M Lives in Our House‘.
