When casting news for Scarlet Heart: Ryeo started coming out in November 2015, it was very apparent you were going to have a hard time settling your eyes on the screen. After all, it’s a list of all your current and new favorite actors: Lee Joon KiKang Ha NeulHong Jong Hyun, EXO's Baekhyun, Ji Soo, Nam Joo Hyuk, and Yoon Sun Woo. The popular sentiment upon seeing lead actress IU surrounded by so many handsome princes was: “What country did she save in her past life?” And, also, “How to be her?” No one really knows how it feels except her. So, how did she feel?

“I got used to their good looks pretty quickly. I was only aware of the fact that I was surrounded by ‘flower boy princes’ at the beginning, and forgot about it later on,” IU revealed in a special on the drama.

As you may have seen in the 7-minute preview, the epic drama is much more than just the beautiful cast. It’s full of action and emotion. Filming it wasn’t easy. The actress said, “Because we suffered and went through a lot [together]…”

IU reminding us that at the end of the day, they are all just human – just really attractive humans.
