Holy heck! This was not what was in my mind when I heard that Song Joong Ki was doing a fantasy drama. This is full-blown sci-fi, almost Chinese epic, style and I am already in love. If I was not already super excited I would be obsessed with watching since it was penned by Kim Young Hyun. The writer of two of my all-time favorite sageuks, Tree With Deep Roots and Six Flying Dragons. She always writes a wonderfully intricate story with characters I remember for years later.
Eun Som is a cursed child born in Blue Stone Village under an ominous sign. He later becomes the conqueror of Asadal, capital of Gojoseon, taking it from city-state to empire. Ta Gon is a war hero among the Saenyeok Tribe and master of strategy. He is ambitious and aims to become the first King of Asadal. Tan Ya is a woman born under a cursed sign who overcomes adversity to become the first female politician of Asadal. She is Eun Som’s first love. Tae Ha is the last surviving Neoantal, a race different from humans, as well as the first Empress of Asadal. (MyDramaList)
