I love every single second of this teaser. The beautiful rich tones seem to bring the characters alive and I am already gripped by Yeo Jin Goo‘s layered portrayal of King Yeong Jo. I am also a fan of the unique tazza plot where a talented gambling prince played by, Jang Geun Suk, gets revenge against his brother, the king.
Jackpot (also called Daebak) is written by the same screenwriter who penned one of my favorite Sagueks, Warrior Baek Dong Soo. I am hoping for some good action as well as intricate connections between the two leading men. It is also a plus that WBDS alumn Choi Min Soo will be playing King Sookjong.
Jackpot will have huge shoes to fill, following the ratings hit Six Flying Dragons. Six Flying Dragons has successfully aired 50 episodes (assuming the last 4 will live up to the previous 46) that was amazing from beginning to end. I can only pray that Jackpot can have even a portion of the former’s charisma.
Jackpot is set to air on March 28th. What do you think? Will you be watching?
