“The Red Sleeve” is a new historical drama about the imperial romance between Crown Prince Yi San (played by Lee Junho), who later becomes Emperor, and the strong-willed lady-in-waiting Seong Deok Im (played by Lee Se Young).
In the previous episode of The Red Sleeve, Yi San and Seong Deok Im began to develop feelings for each other after risking their lives together to save their people. The episode ended on a cliffhanger, however: despite Yi San’s efforts to hide his identity, Seong Deok Im unexpectedly found out that the man she knew as a government official was in fact the Crown Prince.
In newly released still images from the upcoming fourth episode of the drama, the relationship between Yi San and Seong Deok Im begins to develop after learning his identity. When Seong Deok Im officially becomes one of his ladies-in-waiting, the two finally come together as their true selves without Yi San hiding under a false blanket.
Although Seong Deok Im primitively turns away from Yi San during her promotion, the Crown Prince cannot take his eyes off her. With a look full of emotion, he finally takes Seong Deok Im by the wrist as he talks to her, while she reacts by staring at him in shock.
The photos raise the question of whether Yi San is finally making a difference and expressing his feelings for Seong Deok Im – and how their relationship will change after she joins his court and spends every waking moment with him.
The next episode of “The Red Sleeve” will air November 20 at 9:50 pm KST.
