Well, it’s the last day of February, and it is special because we get one extra day this month thanks to the leap year! I think it’s about time for me to have a proper post to say goodbye to 2015. It’s late (I know, I know), but I can’t seem to sit back and write coherent sentences about the dramas I watched last year. Maybe because I don’t really finish that many dramas? That, and my attention span that is getting even shorter year by year. So, expect lots of rants and ramblings in this post while I reminisce about the dramas that made me experience a roller coaster of emotions over the year of 2015.
Six Flying Dragons has reached its 40th episode yesterday, and while it feels like yesterday when it first aired (after a long wait for it), so many things have changed, be it the characters or the relationship between them. We are fast approaching the ending (although it is still a mystery where they will end the story) and thanks to history and its sequel Tree with Deep Roots, we already know who will come out alive at the end of all these conflicts between the characters who were once on the same side. Well, except for Boon-yi. And it is probably a good time to wish her good luck for the remaining episodes.
Hope is not lost in times of despair.
It’s here, it’s here, it’s here!
A week prior to the broadcast, Six Flying Dragons presented a special program to introduce the drama to the fans, as well as the potential viewers who might be interested to watch it after encountering the special. The program, entitled Six Flying Dragons – Who Are the Six Dragons? was aired on 28 September, and the day marks the final seven days countdown to the first episode of the drama! I hope I am not the only one who is beyond excited about it, and hopefully you will enjoy the summary of the special!

Several months after the news first came out for Six Flying Dragons, we’re finally getting closer to the premiere this coming October. It feels like an eternity to have waited for the drama but it’s gonna be here soon! SBS is doing an all-out promotion for the drama, releasing stills, teasers, and character details just to lure in more viewers to tune into the drama. The story of six dragons in the twilight of Goryeo and at the dawn of Joseon, how will these people contribute to the foundation of the 500-year old dynasty?
When it rains, it pours. This week seems like a busy week for drama fans and production teams as the promotion for the upcoming dramas is kicked up a notch, making the wait for them even more difficult. Although we’re still in the month of August, the September and October dramas are hard at work, gearing up for their respective premieres, and we get to have our first look(s) into these dramas: She Was Pretty, The God of Merchant: Gaekju 2015, and Six Flying Dragons.
In the midst of liveshooting culture practiced in Kdramaland, the team behind the upcoming SBS drama Six Flying Dragons has already started filming, four months prior to its premiere scheduled in October after Mrs Cop. It’s a common practice for the team since they also did the same with Tree with Deep Roots: securing the cast and kicking off the production early to maintain the quality of the drama. We also get more news on the additional cast and I’ll continue updating this post with the new ones. Ah, it’s so hard to wait when I’m so excited for the drama!

In case you missed the latest casting news in the kdrama circle, SBS has decided to put its historical drama of the year on the Monday-Tuesday slot. Six Flying Dragons, the latest project from the combo which brought us the brilliant Tree with Deep Roots, is slated to air after High Society in September, but I am so freaking ecstatic already, although we are only in mid-May! There are many reasons to be excited for it, and here are some of them…
