SEOUL, Feb. 1 (Yonhap) -- "The Princess and the Matchmaker" had a promotional press conference at a theater in southern Seoul on Jan. 31.
The domestic comedy-drama depicts Princess Song-hwa's journey, along with the most prominent fortune-teller of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), to find the best match for her among three candidates for her hand in marriage chosen by her father based on their predestined future and compatibility.
It is the second of the Jupiter Film's three-part film project on the Korean fortune-telling traditions, following the 2013 box-office hit "The Face Reader."
Singer-actor Lee Seung-gi plays the role of the fortune-teller named Seo Do-yoon, while actress Shim Eun-kyung is Princess Song-hwa. Since she doesn't want to marry someone she has never seen, Song-hwa sneaks out of the palace to secretly watch each of the candidates at a distance.
The CJ Entertainment release is set to open on Feb. 28.
