New stills have been released for the upcoming MBC Drama, Shine or Go Crazy.
The drama is about a fictional Goryeo-era prince who is first in succession for the throne. He belongs to a royal secret society, and is dogged his whole life by a prophecy that he will turn Goryeo into an ocean of blood someday. His character is meticulous and bold, and is especially good at making quick decisions on his feet.
The heroine is the last princess from Balhae (there are only eight years of overlap in these two kingdoms), and is skilled in many areas, including astronomy, geography, and the art of war. She’s fated to bring light to the Goryeo prince, and she’s described as spunky and wise, and a believer in fated love. The drama will depict their palace romance, between a cursed prince and a princess of a lost nation.

I’m really, really, really looking forward to this drama! It’s been awhile since I’ve watched Jang Hyuk in anything (sorry, wasn’t a Fated to Love You fan). Oh Yeon Seo, I just loved in Come! Jang Bo Ri!
But the highlight of my attraction to this drama is definitely the return of my Im Joo Hwan who has sorely been missed from the screen! I haven’t seen him since “Ugly Alert” and as this is the first drama he has done since then, I can excuse the fact that he isn’t lead but we do get the joy of not only him but also Jang Hyuk returning to the screen in all “mane of glory” wonder! January will surely start off good for me! I can’t wait to better understand the meaning of the title! Who’s with me?!!
