Kim Hye Soo will star in the leading role as Queen Im Hwa Ryung, the wife of a great king and the long-suffering mother of the five naughty royal princes. This will be Kim Hye Soo’s first historical project in almost 10 years, after starring in the 2013 film “The Face Reader,” and her first historical drama in two decades, after appearing in the 2002 drama “Jang Hee Bin.” 

Asking why she accepted the role, Kim said, “Although she was not a real-life figure typically seen in historical dramas, Hwa Ryung instantly captured my heart. The reason I chose "The Queen’s Umbrella" is clear. I chose this project because it is a new historical drama, and has an interesting story.”
