*Lady Jang Hee-bin (Jang Hui-bin) is one of the most famous (or rather, notorious) royal concubines of the Joseon dynasty. Read more about her here.
Shinhwa members turned into 6 different versions of Jang Hee-bin for the upcoming episode of jTBC’s Shinhwa Broadcast.
The ‘Sageuk* Channel’ episode features games involving popular sageuk characters for the ‘Sageuk Olympics’.
(*Sageuk – historical drama)
For the first time in 14 years since their debut, Shinhwa not only had to put on hanboks but also had to raise their voice pitches to sound like women, completing their perfect transformation into Jang Hee-bin.
Gagman Jang Dong-hyuk who took on the role of King Sukjong, attempted to find the real Jang Hee-bin by demanding that they proclaim “I am Jang Hee-bin!” in a coquettish manner, and through aegyo and other tough tests. The members then tried to prove their identities with bizarre dances and never-been-heard-before feminine voices.
The members attacked one another’s appearances and in particular, after seeing Eric dressed up as a woman, Andy even commented that he looked like “Wesley Snipes wearing make-up”. (Hahahahaha ANDY! SO MEAN!)
Catch the Shinhwa members’ portrayal of Jang Hee-bin on Shinhwa Broadcast’s Sageuk Olympics at 11pm on 25 August.
