The Three Musketeers will be Yang Dong Geun’s first drama since he starred in OCN’s Hero in 2012, marking his return to the small screen in two years. It will also be the actor’s first time acting in a historical drama.

Yang Dong Geun stated, “I’m also anticipating a lot since it has been a while since I acted in a drama and this will be my first sageuk (historical drama). The content of the drama, along with the cast and staff members, have been working really well together, so I think it will lead to the production of a high quality project. I hope that many people will anticipate and watch the drama.”

The Three Musketeers is a 3-season drama with each season containing 12 episodes. It is set to air in August.
