Braveness of the Ming 锦衣夜行 is yet another novel-turned-drama adaptation that also adds to the growing list of Korean-Chinese drama crossovers. It stars k-actress Park Min Young and c-actor Zhang Han in a 30-episode Chinese drama set during the Ming Dynasty. Coincidentally, Suzy from Miss A was initially offered the role but declined due to scheduling conflicts. Am I the only one making a connection to Lee Min Ho?
Zhang Han’s character in the drama is a commoner who becomes a Jin Yi Wei 錦衣衛, often recognized in pop culture as blade-wielding secret assassins that take orders from the king. Park Min Young will play his lover and future wife and is looking stunningly awesome in ancient garb.
