Yoon Shi Yoon and Kim Sae Ron to Star in Korean Drama Mirror of the Witch

Mirror of the Witch Korean Drama - Yoon Shi Yoon and Kim Sae Ron

Yoon Shi Yoon (Flower Boy Next Door) and Kim Sae Ron (High School Love On) have been confirmed to star in the new JTBC fantasy romance sageuk Mirror of the Witch (also known as Witch Bogam).  Yoon Shi Yoon will play the Joseon royal physician, Heo Jun, who is known as the father of Eastern medicine.  Kim Sae Ron will play a cursed princess who becomes a gray-haired witch.

Also recently cast is Yum Jung Ah (My Neighbor’s Wife) as our villain.  She will be a powerful shaman who is able to use black magic to change the fates of people.  She is able to give the queen twins with her magic, but in return, Kim Sae Ron’s character becomes cursed.

I’m thrilled to have Yoon Shi Yoon back on the screen for his first post-military project as well as his first saguek.  And Kim Sae Ron is such a talented young actress.  I have no doubt she will do great in her role.

So yes, there is quite the age difference between these two (she’s 15 and he’s 29).  I’m not too concerned at this point though.  We know there won’t be anything inappropriate, and it’s not yet clear just how much of a love-line there will be between the two. We all know how good Yoon Shi Yoon is at the romance side of things, so it is disappointing that we won’t have a full blown romantic relationship.  But I’ve seen plenty of kdramas where the leads never kissed the for the entire drama, and I still enjoyed the couple’s relationship.

I’m also absolutely in love with the fantasy premise of this drama.  It really sounds like something out of a fairy tale.  I can’t wait to see more!

Mirror of the Witch is scheduled to premiere in May on JTBC.
