so neither lee ji hoon or YS are members of the musketeers? so they're supporting the 3 main characters. it's called "the 3 musketeers" afterall. YS will get a chance to work with veteran musical actors and can learn from them. isn't he suppose to release his CB album too in October?

yeah, i think D'Artagnan is the main role. in the novel by Alexandre Dumas, he is the young main protagonist who wants to join the legendary Three Musketeers. so even though that's the title, the 3Ms are more of the supporting roles, i believe.
i'm kinda confused about why they need like 6 D'Artagnans, but it's still great for YS!
thanks for the trans, cllslam10!

D'Artagnan is not one of the 3M, just a friend of the 3M.

D'Artagnan is the protagonist/main lead in THE THREE MUSKETEERS. The story follows D' Artagnan adventures, where he leaves his town of Gascony to join the King's Musketeers in Paris. Along the way, his hot-headed courage arouses the animosity and friendship of Musketeers Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, who become his closest comrades his allies. A skilled swordsman, D'Artagnan is impulsive, quick to provoke, abusive to his manservant and not above having romances with married women or dangerous ones (or their servants). Nevertheless, he is brave, dashing, and committed to his friends, his King, and his country.

Hope this helps in finding out who D' Artaganan is.

In a version in the 1990's (hehe.. that dates me doesn't it?), a young Chris O'Donnell played D'Artaganan, with Kiefer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, and Oliver Platt playing the musketeers. In this version, Chris O'Donnell played the part as a young man anxious to make a name for himself. The 3 Musketeers, through a lot of great comic lines, take him under their wing... It was a very, very entertaining movie....

When I read that YS would be playing the role of D'Artaganan, I immediately imagined him playing the part
like Chris O'Donnell... Anxious upstart wanting to prove
himself but also getting into trouble and needing a little help..... And that dimpled smile would kill just about any
damsel in distress!!!
