Joo Won's first historical drama is My Sassy Girl, which is a Joseon twist based on the popular movie of the same title. Joining the Yong Pal leading man are Oh Yeon Seo (Shine or Go Crazy) and Lee Jung Shin, the smiling knight from Cinderella and Four Knights. The production has released its first stills. Take a look.

Joo Won plays Gyun Woo, a handsome and brilliant scholar who has a bit of an ego, since he is so highly regarded that people refer to him as "Joseon's national treasure."

Oh Yeon Seo is the beautiful Princess Hyemyung who is fearless in standing up to anyone. She will even jump over the palace wall and go where she pleases. No wonder she is considered a troublemaker. Clearly she is about to give a lesson or two to the proud scholar.

These photos promise hilarious encounters when the two characters meet:

In the meantime, Lee Jung Shin plays the second male lead, Kang Joon Young, a charismatic man in the palace. He is described as easygoing, educated in the classics, and fluent in multiple languages. (I hope the CNBlue member gets to sing too.)

The original movie, My Sassy Girl, starring Jeon Ji Hyun and Cha Tae Hyun, was a blockbuster hit when it was released in 2001. The Joseon version, a fully pre-produced drama series, is slated to arrive around mid-2017, and fans can't wait to find out how the drama is progressing in filming. Unfortunately, it is also the last drama for Joo Won before his military enlistment.
