Checking it out mainly because of Joong-Ki, but decides to give it a try because I’m interested after reading the synopsis: solving murder mystery that leads to another bigger mystery. It’s a sageuk (obviously) and full of hanboks, so I think it’s going to be one of my stress reliever when I can’t understand a single word when I’m watching. Anticipating this to be good as the predecessor dramas in this timeslot have been quite a bomb in terms of ratings and storyline.
Here’s the early stills of the casts, including the extended ones. I’m actually excited because I can recognize some of the familiar faces.
Introducing the main casts:
- King Sejong/ Yi Do (Han Suk-Kyu)
- Kang Chae-Yun (Jang Hyuk)
- So Yi (Shin Se-Kyung)
- young King Sejong/ Yi Do (Song Joong-Ki)
- King Taejong (Baek Yun-Shik) – King Sejong’s father
I was cracking my head to know where I’ve seen him before, and ting! He’s Woo Chi’s teacher in Jeon Woo Chi: The Taoist Wizard! He looks younger without the white hair.
- Jo Mal Saeng (Lee Jae-Yong)
the Minister of War one of the big guys in the court and from his almost cunning expression, he’s still the bad guy here.
- Lee Shin-Jeok (Ahn Seok-Hwan)
He looks..um, older. Maybe because of that white wig and moustache.
- Moo Hyul (Jo In Woong)
Why this ahjusshi is so cute?
Young and matured King Sejong
King Sejong: throughout the years
I’m wondering: will these three meet each other? Or So Yi and Chae-Yun will only meet King Sejong later?
