MBC’s upcoming historical drama The Red Sleeve Cuff has welcomed new cast members: actresses Jang Hye-jin (True Beauty) and Seo Hyo-rim (It’s My Life)!

On May 20, Seo’s agency Magiq Entertainment announced that the actress will be making her comeback to the small screen after her break following her marriage.

The Red Sleeve Cuff is a historical-romantic drama based on the popular novel by Kang Mi-kang.

Breathing life into these historical figures are main stars Lee Jun-ho (Confession), who will play Yi San, who will later on be crowned as King Jeongjo, and Lee Se-young (Kairos), who will portray Sung Deok-im, Yi San’s love interest and a court lady who is not too fond of the palace life.

The drama aims to premiere in the second half of 2021.

It was Princess Lulu who first introduced her to Korean dramas but it was Yoon Ji-hoo from Boys Over Flowers who enticed her to stay in K-dramaland. She writes news and features for Kdramapal, which combines two of her most favorite things in the world—writing and K-dramas (look who's living the dream). The name Luna literally translates to "moon" and nothing special; she just likes writing at night.
