- Chunchu is the final weapon; he's a character who appears to be clueless at first and causes trouble for Deokman, but he's actually quite prodigious
- He'll begin seesawing between Deokman and Misil in order to be recognized and up his worth
With secret weapon Bidam already in the picture, "Queen Seon-deok
"'s final weapon Kim Chunchu finally appears. The much loved Yoo Seung-ho
is Kim Chunchu.
Finally all the female fans that have been waiting for him can watch with smiles.
He already set many hearts a-flutter among the female crew members when he began filming last week.
"People keep telling me that my appearance will raise the ratings to hit the 50% mark, and that pressure terrifies me. What if the ratings don't rise~" Yoo Seung-ho
says this with smile, but we can catch a glimpse of the pressure he's feeling.
Will he be able to fit in with the other actors after joining the cast midway through the series? "I watched every episode of the series and tried to pick up on the general feeling. I thought I'd better hurry and join them on set so that I can adjust faster without any problems".
Kim Chunchu's first appearance in episode 34 is rather comical. He is escorted by Misil's faction from China to the Shilla capital Seorabol. He doesn't know how to ride horses so he walks the entire way. He's slow and weak, and he frustrates Misil's minions. He's effeminate and sickly and isn't manly at all.
But there is more to him than meets the eye.
Kim Chunchu is a man of great promise who eventually becomes King Taejong Muyeol. There is definitely something remarkable about him. But his character is lascivious and a bit of a drunkard at first. He ends up rebelling against Deokman, who looked forward to meeting him. He causes her much worry when he hangs out with Misaeng all the time.
But he has an ulterior motive in all this, a political strategem. He's planning to use techniques of diplomacy between Misil and Deokman to heighten his importance and worth. He'll later declare that he'll battle Deokman for the throne, thereby raising the tension.
So how did Yoo Seung-ho
prepare for this complex character? "Kim Chunchu is a character I needed to figure out. When he smiles, he's not really smiling. Please bear with me if at first he appears the fool. Wait it out and you'll see the real Kim Chunchu".
has reunited with Jung Woong-in
(Misaeng) after five years. They were father and son in the movie "Don't Tell Papa
" but now they're colleagues and seemingly friends in the political sphere. Jung Woong-in
commented earlier, "Seung-ho grew up so fast. I'm looking foward to seeing him". To which Seung-ho replied, "I'm glad to be reuniting with my father".
Bidam's performance as the secret weapon and the appearance of Kim Chunchu, the final weapon, will change the course of "Queen Seon-deok
