The production’s theme was also portrayed through Lee Min Ho and Kim Hee Sun’s placement in the picture. Kim Hee Sun gazed at Lee Min Ho with sorrowful eyes, to which Lee Min Ho avoids with a sad expression on his face.
This photoshopped image appeared on the fan cafes of Lee Min Ho and Kim Hee Sun, as well was the drama’s writer, Song Ji Na’s own homepage. Song Ji Na then commented that Lee Min Ho’s fans were very talented.
Aside from the poster, fan made music videos are also appearing on the internet, showing the excitement that fans have for this upcoming series.
In addition, a representative of Lee Min Ho’s company said, “With the solid writing of Song Ji Na and the characters of Choi Young and Eun Soo so alive in the scripts, we are expecting that they will become a popular couple in the latter part of 2012.”
With the collaboration of director Kim Jong Hak and writer Song Ji Na, Faith is a fusion sageuk about the romantic relationship between a warrior from the Koryo Dynasty and a female doctor in present day. Kim Hee Sun takes the role of the female doctor and Lee Min Ho will play the role of the king’s body guard. The drama will air on August 13.
