The cast and staff of the upcoming MBC historical drama ‘Rebel: The Thief Who Stole People’ gathered for a press conference on January 24.

The first ever lead role to be portrayed by actor Yoon Kyun Sang in a drama said, , “I am very nervous and scared of the fact that I am taking the lead role in a 30-episode historical drama. I was upset about whether I would be able to accurately play the role of Hong Gil Dong. After starting with the production sunbaenims, the director, the writers, and more, and discussing things over with them, my worries turned into anticipation.”

He also gave details on the production and shared, “There’s a part that is very appropriate in the theme of the story and the present time. They say that at present times, people are divided into gold spoons and steel spoons, and to viewers who feel that they’re living this unfair life, we will be introducing them with a drama that is a refresher.”

‘Rebel: The Thief Who Stole People’ also stars Chae Soo Bin, Kim Ji Suk, Honey Lee, and more and will premiere January 30 at 10 PM KST.
