Dokko Youngjae, Park Jeonghak and Lee Dahii gathered and read the scripts.
It was very interesting to watch the prominent actors/actresses gather and attune
themselves to the scripts.
It seemed that Lee Dahii, who acts as Gakdan, was more concerned about
not making mistakes in reading the script than being absorbed in the emotions.
Park Jeonghak kept the script in his shoes, read it, and put it back deeply
in his shoes. He showed a mischievous face when he was caught.
Actually, he was cute compared to his blunt image.
Dokko Youngjae laughed a lot and looked like a child.
Who could image him making a “V” sign with his fingers as he left?
Seungho acts as young Damduk. He is shy and reserved child.
He looked mature because he acted in a dignified manner. Acting this way
before the cameras compared him to anyone else. However, he behaved
and nagged like a child to his manager while he was waiting for his turn.
That day, the filming was continued until 12:00 am.
The extras, acted as court ladies, were waiting since the morning.
They’re tired of waiting and sleeping in the corner.
Thank you for your hard work.

Kim Seongyung was selected as the role of Lady Yeon.
She isn’t popular even though she is famous as a musical actress.
Some doubted her casting due to that reason, but the ones who saw
her acting understood it.
Lady Yeon has a very strong, cold and bitter personality.
Her role needs acting ability because with mistakes the character may
come off lowly. She acted with the dignity of Lady Yeon
Surprisingly, Kim Seongyung has a lovely and vivid personality.
She is beautiful, but doesn’t pretend to be a modest girl. She even melted
the stiff environments of the filming site smoothly with her unique girlish charm.
The filming sites always were pleasant when she was there.

Choi Minsoo started the filming at the studio.
He, acts as the elder of Hwacheonhoe, appearing as the old man,
as nobody can recognize him. The director was quite satisfied with
his make-up, because the task was probably challenging for the make-up crew.
Choi, Minsoo acted naturally and efficiently even though it was his first shooting.
It looked like he didn’t like the quiet and urgent environment, talking endlessly.
It seemed that even the director was used to that situation and didn’t show
any uncomfortable symptoms.
