The Fangirls have been buzzing about this drama since it was announced, and it’s finally here! SQUEEEE! Also, entertain yourself by playing “Where’s Chilbongie?” with the movie poster above. I’ll give you a hint–he’s hidden under a TON of hair, and it looks good.
The plot synopsis, from our friends at MyDramaList.com: “The drama is set in 1900 to 1905 and tells the story of a soldier in the righteous army falling in love with an aristocrat’s daughter. It begins in 1871 when the hero boards an American military ship as a little boy during the Shinmiyangyo, a U.S. military expedition to Korea that resulted in a battle. He lands in the U.S. and then years later returns to Korea as an American soldier,to the country that abandoned him. While stationed in Korea, he’ll meet and fall in love with a nobleman’s daughter.”
That is quite the trailer–I’m definitely intrigued. Mr. Sunshine has the writer AND the director from Goblin on it, so I have high hopes. It also looks like Netflix is releasing it pretty quickly, compared to the last few kdramas they took for themselves. It has the same start date as tvN, but we’ll see what really happens.
What do you think, drama fans? Will you be watching? Let me know!
