Song Seung Hun is looking mighty fine in historical robes in a new character poster for Saimdang: Light's Diary, his upcoming drama with Lee Young Ae (Jewel in the Palace), who also looks beautiful in her own character poster.

Saimdang: Light's Diary is based on the life of Shin Saimdang, who was a female artist and mother of the Korean Confucian scholar Yulgok in the 1500s. Lee Young Ae plays two roles, Shin Saimdang and a university lecturer with expertise in Korean art history. She becomes immersed in history as she unravels the secrets of Shin Saimdang's diary and a mysterious painting of a woman.

Song Seung Hu plays an upright, refined gentleman, who first fatefully meets Saimdang in his youth and continues to love her for the rest of his life. His character is described as a “Joseon Gatsby,” who lives a passionate life without compromise. 

And here's the first teaser, in case you missed it:

Doesn't it look good so far? I can't wait to see more!
