Song Joong-ki, behind the scenes as King Se-jong

First look at Song Joong-ki in character as Se-jong the Great! With his newest role, he goes from Joseon-era pretty boy (Sungkyunkwan Scandal) to Joseon-era royalty.

Song is playing the younger version of the famous king in Tree With Deep Roots, the anticipated sageuk drama from the Queen Seon-deok writers that also stars Jang Hyuk, Han Seok-kyu, and Shin Se-kyung.

Song recently tweeted this photo of himself in sageuk garb, taken from the drama’s set. Well, aegyo king is one version of Se-jong we haven’t seen in all the numerous adaptations that have existed to date; count on Song Joong-ki to make even a legendary figure look adorable. In the drama, his youthful version of Se-jong is a genius living under a harsh father and turns inward to his books; he represses his nature in order to foster patience, in a conscious effort to be the opposite of his father. Han Seok-kyu plays his older counterpart once the drama moves into his reign as king.

Tree With Deep Roots premieres in September on SBS.

Adorbs. Does Jang Hyuk play his rival? And why must there be Shin Se Kyung (no I am not a Shinee fan girl)...

They play the same character :). Song Joong-ki plays the teen-age Sejong. Jang Hyuk plays the older Sejong.

more like Goo Yong Ha. this reminds me of Song Joong Ki when he was still on Running Man and CN Blue's Yonghwa came as a guest. Joong Ki had to write Yonghwa's name but he wrote Yong Ha instead because he was still too absorbed into his character.

I never thought I'd hear the phrase "aegyo king," like, ever :D but trust the Dramabeans crew to come up with the perfect way to describe SJK-as-King Sejong!

I recommend you start watching Warrior Baek Dong Soo, like now! Since you love Sungkyunkwan, I can bet that you'll find WBDSoo even more addictive -- in comparison, to me, it really is a notch higher in level of awesomeness.

You'll find yourself loving the main cast like right away.

I just wish dramabeans would do recaps for this drama. I'm not that into Heartstrings (after the 1 first episode, couldn't stand those awkward stares that take minutes long), nor Myung Wol Spy (after the slap).

I'm so glad I found Warrior Baek Dong Soo to watch for the remaining of summer~~~~

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah~!!!

Cutest Sejong I've ever seen~!!!! X^X...
I still miss his Gu Yong-ha character tho...Moon Jae-shin Yoo Ah-in, WER R U?!!!!!

BTW, the hongryongpo he's wearing is accurate during the time period...

"...his youthful version...is a genius living under a harsh father..." -> like, anyone who'd watched "Tears of the Dragon" would agree to that...

(still remembers Yoo Dong-geun acting as Taejong & the Daewon-gun...)

If some fans will go crazy over this, they might connect this to "The Princess's Man", since the storyline of that drama is just after this...
(note: Grand Prince Suyang is Sejong's 2nd son...)
