Moreover, the teaser also features Girls' Generation's Yuri as Princess Soo Kyung, the widowed daughter of King Gwanghae.
Aside from the lead stars, the historical drama also unveiled Shin Hyun Soo's character, who portrayed the role of Lee Dae Yeop.
Following the release of the latest preview, fans expressed their excitement over the debut of "Bossam - Stealing Fate."
"Can't wait!! I hope this drama will be available on Netflix or Viu," one wrote.
The second user echoed the same sentiment and commented, "I am really really looking forward to seeing it!!!!"
Meanwhile, an individual pointed out that the forthcoming drama should be available not just in Korean networks but also in over-the-top channels such as Netflix.
"Will wait for this drama to be confirmed on other OTT platforms."
"Bossam - Stealing Fate" First Teaser
Earlier this month, the MBC drama unveiled its first preview showing the background story behind the practice of bossam.
Set under the Joseon Dynasty, the ancient practice involves secretly abducting and stealing the widow for her to remarry another single man.
During the said era, widows are not allowed to remarry under normal circumstances. With this, families arranged bossam to help them find a new husband.
In the teaser, Kwon Yuri was seen in a pristine white traditional costume, who met Ba Woo in an unfortunate event as he caused chaos in the neighborhood.
The plot thickens after Ba Woo mistakenly kidnaps Soo Kyung in exchange for money.
Directed by Kwon Seok Jang and written by Kim Ji Soo and Park Chul, "Bossam - Stealing Fate" is set to air on MBC this coming May 1.
In the middle of 2020, rumors sparked that Jung Il-woo will be teamed up with the Girls' Generation member.
At the time, a representative from the "Sweet Munchies" star's agency, HB Entertainment, said that he is currently reviewing the project being offered to him.
It was only later in June when the actor was confirmed to play the lead role and was followed by Kwon Yuri in August.
On the other hand, it was only earlier this year when the production team confirmed the complete list of the cast, including the supporting actors.
Aside from the duo, "Bossam - Stealing Fate" cast members includes Shin Hyun Soo, Yoon Joo Man, Kim Tae Woo, Lee Jae Yong, So Hee Jung, Shin Dong Mi, and Lee Joon Hyuk.
With the nearing debut of the period drama series, the production team praised the actors, especially the 31-year-old actress. This is said to be her first time to appear in a historical drama.
In a previous report, the production team mentioned how the singer-actress' "elegant image" is such a perfect fit for the role.
"Yuri is brilliantly portraying the turbulent life of Soo Kyung, which includes going through the engagement she didn't want, becoming a young widow, and being kidnapped. She's pulling it off so well that it's hard to believe that this is Yuri's first historical drama," the team shared.
