Lee Jung Shin went back into the past to transform into a Koguryo warrior.
New stills of the singer-turned-actor were released before the premiere of the KBS drama Blade and Petal, set to start airing on July 3.
Lee Jung Shin will appear as a warrior named Si Woo in King Yeongryu (Kim Yeong Cheol)′s secret warrior team Geum Hwa Dan.
Si Woo is an orphan who used to wander the streets, but is picked up by So Sa Beon (Kim Sang Ho), the leader of the Geum Hwa Dan. He rarely despairs, and is a bold character who boasts great martial skills and an eye for art.
He comes to have a crush on Kin Yeongryu′s daughter Moo Young (Kim Ok Bin).
Lee Jung Shin previously proved his skills in acting with a role in KBS2′s My Daughter Seo Young. In the drama he appeared as a mischievous little brother, but this time he aims to turn his image around.
Blade and Petal is a Romeo-and-Juliet-type romance set in Koguryo.
