I am so excited for upcoming drama Ruler: Master of the Mask. You literally could not have filled it with better sageuk actors. Both Kim So Hyun and Yoo Seung Ho are sageuk veterans, having acted in some of the biggest historical dramas practically from birth…. OK, maybe 6ish or so …. but it is close to birth. Thankfully, these teasers do not disappoint and you can tell from the latest that they will have oodles of chemistry.
In the 1700’s, Crown Prince Lee Sun fights against Pyunsoo hwe, an organization that has accumulated power and wealth through privatizing water all over Joseon. He becomes a hope for the people who suffer. Ga-Eun is the woman Crown Prince Lee Sun loves and she helps him grow as a ruler.
Hmm, that synopsis is a bit drab. From the teasers it looks like we have cute romance, tragic backstory, revenge, and of course Yoo Seung Ho looking sexy in a mask. From what I have gleaned we also have 2nd lead L taking the place of the prince wearing a mask. I am envisioning a cross between Man in the Iron Mask and The Prince and the Pauper. I officially can’t wait to see how it all develops.
Ruler: Master of the Mask is set to air on May 10th.

The teasers look enticing, but with the same types of background (evil villain wants power, weak prince not wanting to be a royal, hands tied by laws, trauma, drama, tragic death of loved ones, forbidden love) as most of the Joseon dynasty dramas lately. Not captivating enough for me, I think I might have to wait until this drama is over before I try to make an attempt to get emotionally involved.
Thanks for keeping us updated on the latest in K dramas!
Out of all the upcoming dramas, this is the one I’m looking forward to the most. I love Yoo Seung Ho in sageuks and everything looks very high quality too. Hoping it will be a better execution of this type of plot than some of the recent sageuk attempts.
