Actor Lee Min Ho will be taking his first step into the sageuk (historical drama) field with his first casting in the historical drama, 'Faith'.
In the upcoming SBS's Wednesday-Thursday drama, 'Faith', which will air around August, Lee Min Ho will act as Admiral Choi Young, as part of King Gongmin's escort. He later becomes General Choi.
'Faith', a fusion sageuk, is about a Goryeo Dynasty warrior who meets a female doctor from the modern times, and together help make a king who will truly care for and heal the people. The drama will be produced by writer Song Ji Na and PD Kim Jong Hak, who've worked together to create hit dramas like 'Sandglass' and 'Eyes of the Dawn'.
Through his agency, Starhaus Entertainment, Lee Min Ho stated, "Right when I read the script, I was pulled into it and read until part 6 in a dash...As I already like sageuks, and have been looking to appear in a sageuk for an image change, it seems like I've found an armor that fits my body."
