Joo Won (Baker King, Ojakkyo Brothers) gets the lead role for upcoming KBS drama Gaksital, or Bridal Mask. It’s based on the 70s manhwa by Heo Young-man. I was so happy to hear the news!

“Gaksital is a famous manhwa set in the 1930s, during the Japanese occupation. The hero, Lee Kang-to, is known as ‘Gaksital’ because he wears a mask to hide his face — one of those traditional play masks, specifically the rosy-cheeked one reserved for the female role, aka the bride. He’s an unassuming young man in real life, but when he dons his superhero mask, he fights injustice and rights wrongs during one of the darkest periods of Korea’s history. The manhwa itself, written in 1974, is described as astoundingly contemporary, and deals with a myriad of social issues, still praised for its nationalistic stance.”
Bridal Mask plans for a May premiere on KBS. Can’t wait!

He meets a bright veterinarian, Jung Ji Na, and thus begins their love story. Continue reading
