Sageuk lovers, rejoice! Kim Myeong-min will soon be reborn as the Sherlock Holmes of the Joseon Kingdom!

Kim Myeong-min has selected his next project even before his latest movie Man of Vendetta has hit the theaters. For the new movie "Detective K" (working title), Kim Myeong-min will play the role of Jeong Yak Yong, a brilliant scholar who had a keen eye for investigation.

This historical-mystery-comedy film is the adaptation of the second novel in the Baektappa (백탑파) detective series penned by well-known historical novelist Kim Tak-hwan, one of the authors of the novels from which 2004 drama, "Immortal Admiral Yi Sun-shin" was based.

The movie will be directed by Kim Seok-yoon, who helmed the "Old Miss Diary - Movie" (2006) and "Old Miss Diary - Drama" (2004). Filming is due to start in the middle of August.

Now, can you picture "Bad Family"'s Oh Dal Gun and "Open City"'s Jo Dae Young wearing traditional clothes a la Yi Soon Shin? I can't wait!
