The many faces of Road No. 1’s So Ji-sub
With just a few more weeks till MBC unveils its Korean War drama Road No. 1, here’s a look at star So Ji-sub in several of his guises as the main character, Jung-woo. The melodrama boasts a hefty production budget of 13 billion won, large-scale battle scenes, and heart-wrenching romance between the leads, So Ji-sub and Kim Haneul. (Rounding out the love triangle is Yoon Kye-sang, who falls for the girl and fights alongside the guy, playing the classic part of the third wheel.)
Filmed and produced almost entirely in advance, the drama has currently shot 90% of its footage. Road No. 1 premieres on June 23, just shy of the 60-year anniversary of the outbreak of the war on June 25.
