August is coming to an end soon, which means September will be here with lots of new offerings! Although it will be another long wait for the movie to be subbed, the thought of getting to watch Sado/The Throne alone makes me so, so excited. The main trailer has been released yesterday following the first teaser and character teaser before, and the production conference was held last week, with Director Lee Joon-ik and actors Song Kang-ho and Yoo Ah-in in attendance. But the reason I’m posting the teasers in a separate post? Moon Geun-young.
Heh, I might have been too excited to see Moon Geun-young in the main trailer..not once or twice, but thrice! But there’s ground to that level of excitement..this will be her first official appearance on big screen after almost 10 years(!) and hopefully the first for more to come, because she’s been sorely missed in good productions. Come on writers and directors…give her a good role and she will nail it!
Besides Lady Hyegyeong, we also get to catch glimpses of Sado’s birth mother Lady Yi (Jeon Hye-jin) and Queen Inwon (Kim Hae-sook) in the same trailer. Judging from the promotional stills and teasers, there’s no doubt that the movie will be focusing on the father and son pairing: Yeongjo and Sado, portrayed by Song Kang-ho and Yoo Ah-in. Still, there’s glimmer of hope that we will get engaging side characters that will surely shine in their own ways, not to forget complimenting the performance of the main pairing.
Let’s hope Sado will continue Yoo Ah-in’s successful movie streak after Veteran and extend it to his upcoming drama, Six Flying Dragons!
