Following his discharge from the military last March 2021, Lee Junho is now preparing for his first drama with MBC's The Red Sleeve Cuff. He takes on the role of crown prince Lee San, who is expected to become the next king.
The Red Sleeve Cuff tells the story of a king who falls in love with a court lady and wants her to become his wife. Unfortunately, the lady doesn't want to be his wife as she wants to live her life freely.
The journey of their not so ordinary love story will premiere in November, and will occupy the 10:00 p.m (KST) Friday-Saturday slot.
