Extension confirmed for Warrior Baek Dong-soo

So the drama groundhog has seen its shadow, and now we’ll be getting six more episodes of Warrior Baek Dong-soo. The extension takes the drama’s total episode count up to 30 from its initially scheduled 24, although producers have stated that the drama had always had a 30-episode run in mind and therefore should be able to support extra weeks without too much strain. We hope.

I’d pretty much figured this was coming once producers announced that an extension was being considered. Fusion sageuk Warrior Baek Dong-soo has been performing strongly in its Monday-Tuesday slot, taking the ratings prize over MBC’s sageuk series Kye Baek and KBS’s Frankenstein of a spy-romance-comedy-melo-action series Myung-wol the Spy. SBS has got strong drama performers on every night of the week, and that’s never an easy slot to give up if you can help it.

This means that Thousand Day Promise — the melodrama penned by hitmaker writer Kim Soo-hyun that marks Kim Rae-won’s post-army comeback, co-starring Su Ae — will be pushed back three weeks from its initial premiere date of September 26. Well, they say good things come to those who wait. (Tearjerkers aren’t my style and the story of a woman in the prime of life losing her memory slowly seems like pretty solid tearjerker material, but this is Kim Soo-hyun writing, and I like Su Ae, and Kim Rae-won is wonderful.)

I haven’t been watching Warrior Baek Dong-soo, but now that there are more episodes, you know what would get me onboard? If the two pretty, pretty boys reconciled their differences and, oh, sat around braiding each other’s lustrous manes of glory. We could indulge in some massive bromance and call them Braidie Buddies. Seriously, it could be a thing.

Yeah, I could get onboard this drama too when that happens. It's a very long drama and I'm not sure I can commit to it, but right now, I'm enjoying it's OST. I have a feeling I'll enjoy this better than The Princess' Man. ;)

LOL. Yea, I would love it also if they would reconciled and become a good force against the bad guys. That would be awsome but knowing how k-dramas are, it's unlikely.

Overall, I have to say this drama is pretty good and intense. It's lagging a little bit in the middle but still very on the edge of your seat.

I'm actually watching The princess's man and warrior baek dong soo, and i've gotta say princess's man makes me jump out of my seat more.

But, still enjoying WBDS! It's just lagging a bit right now, with the ginseng story and what not. ( middle )

This is exactly what I was going to say to "1234". I love The Princess's Man, (especially Park Shi missing shirt scenes of recent) but the storyline is getting better with each episode and definately makes you pay attention.

WBDS is just as good but the ginseng storyline is just making me want to make a cup of tea everytime someone starts talking about it (which is nearly all the last 3 episodes). Also I'm a bit disapponited that Dong Soo has now got all serious! I know it's the aim but he's simply lost all his characteristics which made him appealling. Hopefully this can be drilled back in with the new extension as the Sky Lord and Yeo Woon is one of the the things that keeps me watching (The Deadly Assassin) feel free to slay me too!!!!

Narrrrr Warrior Baek Dongsoo had such a great start but it's died down now with the useless ginseng storyline. The emo nun keeps getting kidnapped and having to be saved BAH It's just going in circles now. The Princess' Man has been good since episode 1 and it's getting better and better now that the shit's hit the fan. SO INTENSE I have small anxiety attacks every episode. The main characters are doing SUCH A STELLAR JOB displaying love and hate. Just. Amazing. Sigh <3

Um, no way. TPM has been consistently good. I think people aren't even giving this drama a chance because they anticipate a tragic ending, which will probably happen, but the course to get their has been so good so far.

TPM is really good, everyone should give it a chance.

I have to second that - in my opinion, TPM's story has (so far) an intriguing, solid storyline accompanied by an awesome cast. I really liked Warrior Baek Dong Su, but for me the story fizzled a bit when DS and YW became official enemies because I lost all those "feel good, happy moments" when they accomplished things together. Also, I think the JS character is flat and doesn't seem to belong with all the other characters who are more charismatic. I'm hoping with the extension, that maybe DS and YW will somehow make up, find a new enemy and fight together on the same side again.

Umm, does this mean more time to make Dongsoo forget nun hairpin girl and finally realize the charms of Jin Joo?! If so, count me in. Plus, more Cheon time!!! Unless, they kill him off. Please don't kill him off until at least episode 30.

Actually, let me revise that. I would also like Cheon and Gwangtaek to finally let their hair flow and get their bromance on as well to become the older version of the Braidie Buddies.

I keep saying that as long as Chun is around, I'm around for this show. Show is not shy about killing people off, but he had better last at least until episode 29, or I will be an angry poodle.

And yes, that is Lee Yong Woo, he of Style and Birdie Buddy, as the Japanese swordmaster, whose name I think is Kenjo, but I'll have to go check the subtitles.

Too bad the boys weren't in jail long enough to get mussed, or JB would have gotten her wish.

Dong Soo started to realize, as we all had, that the Nun ain't nearly as pretty as Yoo Seung Ho with mane of glory!! ;)

I just giggled through the whole scene. Yeo Woon wants Dong Soo to punish him for being a bad, bad boy. And Dong Soo's serious about him coming back to him. Total yaoi awesomeness!!!

When Dong Soo turned away and said "I'm sorry" I literally fell off my chair laughing. It was like a classic make up and make out scene.

Wait, what episode is this IN? I'm getting all tingly just thinking about this moment and the images it conjures in my head.

@Kristal,

Near the beginning of Episode 18. Dong Soo and Yeo Woon get locked in a jail. There's some talking . Yeo Woon reminds Dong Soo to not forgive him. Dong Soo slaps Yeo Woon and then gets teary eyed about how he wants the old Yeo Woon back. They stand very close to each other . . .

Unfortunately, before makeup prison sex can ensues, somebody comes in and breaks up this tearful situation.

I can't quit you Yeo Woon!!

Tee hee! Not to mention him saying ''My 'Oon'' about twice. OK, that was firing hot! But down boy, Your 'Oon's only just legal...

r u sure the jail scene is in ep 18? cos i watched and i totally dont remember that scene being there and i would have remembered if i had seen it...(

@supah,

"Not to mention him saying ”My ‘Oon” about twice"

And Dong Soo with WATERY EYES LOLOLOL!! *Sigh*

I kid you not, I think the writers know they're losing the rivalry plot, so they're throwing us a bunch of fan service to make us giggle and squee. I feel like I'm watching a Big Bang parody skit. :D

@Yasmin,

Oh haha. I meant Episode 19! It's a strange episode in general. Yeo Woon was about to own Mr. Pig, but Dong Soo intervened. They get thrown in jail, have their lover's quarrel, and then they kinda have their "why might have been" moment royally beating up other people out of prison.

0

Not gonna lie, when Kenjo the Japanese swordsman, played by the guy who was the sexually confused guy in Style, says something to the effect of "I'm more interested in Baek Dong Soo" I said out loud "Oh, of course you are! Let's just have a little rivalry amongst the boyz now."

I really do love this show. Park the brain and grin. 8-)

lol sounds sexy what you said there belleza looks like yeo un wants to be punished lol i'm rooting for yeo un and jisun but i'll stop saying that here cause don't want to annoy all the dong soo yeo un couple fans lolol but i think that would be awesome if yeo un and dong soo braided there manes of glory together and linked there arms and run off to the sunset lol ike ace says braidie buddies lol

Oh, I liked Lee Yong-woo in Men Cry (one of those KBS Drama Specials), never realised he had a stigma. Never watched Style. Whew!
I'm err... Can't believe I'm going on record in saying this but... I find him sexually attractive.
Hee!

It's only when he opens his mouth I might have a problem... He sounds like one of those sleazy radio jockeys on the midnight love hour. The lisp really doesn't help.
His scene at the end of ep20 was... gasp!
Eff yeah! Kenjo!

Hmm, actually, in Episode 19 -- Dong Soo and Yeo Woon almost have a "I can't quit you!" moment in jail together. :D

It looks like they've started a new storyline, involving a Japanese swordsman (who suspiciously looks like the Korean-Jamaican from Birdie Buddy, or the sexually confused Eurodance guy from Style)

The more WBDS goes back to its live anime style, the better. Chun and Jin Ju are still the emotional center of the show.

"i’m rooting for jin ju having three dads"

Oh I know. This Fall, Jin Ju stars in My Three Dads, an adorable sageuk sitcom between a cheerful bandit girl and her three murderous father kin.

Jin Gi: Jin Ju, why U sad?
Jin Ju: *pout* Dong Soo doesn't know that I'm alive. He's obsessed with that nun girl.
Swordsmaster: Lemme talk to Dong Soo.
Chun: Waste of time. I will slay that nun girl!
Jin Ju: Oh Daddy!! *hugs Chun*
Swordmaster: Jin Ju really does favor you, you know.
*cue canned laughter*

My guess is Jin Ju will turn to the dark side. In effect, even though Swordmaster is her biological father, she seems more attached to Chun and may follow him.

yhhhhhh i know that would be cool but you can understand why she may be more attached to cheon because he protected her lol and he told her straight out that ji is the only women in his heart so that makes jin ju soften up a bit and he told her she's pretty and i liked the idea that he could be her father more glad all the daddy issue is cleared up i still think jin ju is like a hoksa chrorong successor i mean her mother being an assassin and grandfather the previous skylord and if her father had been choen so yhhh lol

0

Jin Ju and the dark side... I'm on that theory, too.
In 20 there was this beautifully shot scene with Cheon and Jinju's paths colliding, two lost souls and everything...
But even if there were no further developments, the foundation for their relationship has already been set, she will always have Cheon.
Which, will be interesting if anything was to become of her crush on Dongsoo. And the latter has officially evolved into Gwangtaek-lite. The similarities are almost creepy.
And so history repeats itself... Fun times.

What an imagination you have but I can;t help but smile imagining the whole scene...yeah the whole thing is pretty much possible...

OMG - I just watched this episode (catching up after 10 days of no power/internet due to Hurricane Irene!) - I'm sitting here, wailing away with the rest of the saguek gang with the death of the Mom!Mom!, her cremation, etc., and then they cut to Sky Warrior grieving - which makes me cry harder, until I notice that his face is like a human faucet - fluid pouring and dripping from every opening, enough to make me start laughing in a horrified way - and I'm still bawling like an idiot... Choi - I do love you for your total over-the-top immersion (heh) in your role!

Happy that WBDS has been extended - more of our sweet, sweet pretty boy show. They are well on the road to rekindling their bromance, hair-braiding and all.

The artist and Jin Joo will be together. Man is totally smitten with her, and he's cute to boot. One thing I find with looking at Jin Joo is that for me, she skews a bit older than the other kids. (The bone structure of her face is totally Katheryn Hepburn-esque. It's rather startling to see in an Asian actress).
This show is totally kickass - am enjoying every episode!

I'm still on the fence about an extension. 30 episodes means we're just only halfway through now. If Episode 20 was any indication of the greatness that has yet to be fleshed out, then yes, do it. But if it takes that Left Turn at Albuquerque and beats the dead horse over the DS/JS shipping, then you can BITE ME TWICE, SHOW!!! I guess we'll see soon, ne?

It´s my first sageuk-like drama, currently watching ep 15 and I like it a lot so far. TBH the best actors were those kids, especially the main hero. I like his older version too, the Sky Lord and his adoptive dad. The best swordman guy is always late and the other main guy is good looking (if you prefer girlish looking boys) but doesn´t have much to do, his martial arts seems to be based on staring meaningfully at people or regretfully on the ground.

I think this would be a good thing. YW's character (the one I am most interested in) has been under-developed probably because of YSH accident. He's hardly in a hand full of scenes and does nothing but stalk or save princess-nun. If there is an extension maybe they'll have a chance to give him more to do. I don't mind him going evil as long as it gives us some conflict. Right now, the writers don't know what to do with his character. And where is the conflict? After CP Sado died there is nothing in terms of a plot (the ginseng is hardly what I would call a plot).

Thank God for Chun. Otherwise I would have lost interest after ep 15.

agree with you that they don't use YSH potential acting skill, the writer doesn't make enough conflict for him for becoming devil...usually I love character similar like YW, because they had been raised by bad people, nobody love them and because the first lead always get everything, just like Yeom Moon in the emperor of the sea...but in WBDS, I luvv Dong Soo more than YW. Despite I'm a big fan of Ji Chang Wokk (uri dongseng...why you're so adorable..sigh...), I think because YW character is toooo flat..just like JS (hehehe...too many people say the same about her)...It's soo sad because I've heard that actually YSH get first offer to be Dong Soo but he choose YW character because the character should be more encouraging for him as an actor..Sigh...

"After CP Sado died there is nothing in terms of a plot (the ginseng is hardly what I would call a plot)."

In fact, I would argue the opposite. There's TOO MUCH plot. Up through Sado's death, the primary narrative focused on Dong Soo's coming-of-age. The friendship/rivalry, the complex family history, all that centered around Dong Soo's maturation.

Well, that maturation is done. Now what?!?

I've always argued that the Sado court intrigue plot actually took away the appeal of the show, but to set up the various missions and fights. WBDS isn't a strong court drama; it's a boy's fight cartoon.

Unfortunately, now there's many different subplots. And now the show seems like it's wandering. Dong Soo has grown up; the rivalry has already lost its steam; the nun seems a holdover from a prior story arc; there's a neat budding rivalry between Dong Soo and Kenjo, but we don't have any emotional investment except for more fights; the Swordmaster and Chun both seem in semiretired in terms of centrality to the story; Yeo Woon seems more a side character with aimless goals now. Jun-ju's own coming-of-age arc is the best thing about WBDS, but it's inherently irrelevant to Dong Soo's story arc.

There's something to knowing what show you are, and playing to strengths. Introducing traditional sageuk elements, when the historical interpretation was already wacky and the emotional currency had been spent on other characters, has weakened WBDS.

"That would make a few slash Youtube video editors really really REALLY happy"
OMG. I can't wait to see what XnerjaveikaX (hope i got the name right) will do with that.

And oh yes! please bring back old BDS. I had just fallen flat for JCW when he goes and gets all mature and boring. BDS is no fun without the humor.

He's still our Dongsoo at heart, though...

Whoooo Whoooo!!! =D I am reaaaallly fascinating to watch this amazing drama Warrior Baek Dong Soo -- it's reaaaally GOOD!! I love watching their martial art style is awesome & I really want to learn how to martial art like that! =D Aw, I enjoyed watched these young actors acts for young Dong Soo and young Yeo Un in the beginning, yups!

Oooo, I've never watched that other drama The Princess's Man and I read these comments from everyone's.....I am bit of surprised that they talks about that drama The Princess's Man is so amazing and interesting, ofc. At first, I am not sure that if I try to watch this, but I started to watch TPM -- but it was VERY deeply interesting and addictive to watch!!! Lolz. =D I love both of dramas, of course!!

"I love watching their martial art style is awesome"

Actually, worth noting . . . Chun's sword choreography is kendo/kenjutsu, whereas everybody else's more wuxia-style sword choreography. Choi Min Soo is a black belt in kendo, and that is a big reason why his swordsmanship looks legit.

Yay! Glad that's confirmed.
I miss the playful, adorable & infatuated silly Dongsoo but I'm happy to see him grown more mature & skillful.
He, Yun & Cho Rip grew up & training together. They have supported & defended each other. Yun saved Dongsoo more than once. Dongsoo shielded Yun at the expense of losing his arm! They really care for each other. Why not. I hope Yun will help Dongsoo...it seems so...secretly. I love their bromance. Tickles me.
Yun cares for Jisun deeply. I hope she realizes that & live with Yun.
I now know who Dongsoo's wife & his parent's in law as written in history. Yipee!

Hi maria! Thanks. I've watched ep 20 raw. Still waiting for the English sub to understand details. But the way Yun looks at Ji sun, how he cares & protects her, their eye contact says it all. From the time they met they seem to communicate a lot just looking at each other (eye talk). Yun's eyes express his passion. I really feel for Yun because his dad tortured him just because he predicts he's born to kill. I think his dad led him to that fate. He grew up with hate & then trained to kill. Unlike Dongsoo who received a lot of love. DS must have that charm because he must be the first friend/person that Yun learn to love & care for. He even help DS with his obsession for JS when he's fond of her too. So I hope JS will value & learn to love Yun back.

yhhhh actually out of everyone here i agree with you the most i have not seen subs of ep 19 or 20 yet skipped through it lol but will get there when subs are out lolz i think ji sun will start to have feelings for him now she's there i mean dong soo hasn't rushed to her and there's more time for yeo un and ji sun and you can see how he loves her sooo much lol too me dong soo at first was just infatuated he could possibly love her now but to me he's better with jin ju and i'm looking forward to future eps of yeo un and ji sun there little looks and maybe even touches is enough for me but i do want more of them lolz he's always protecting her i hope she gets that in her head lol

There are comments here about The Princess man. I'm watching that too. I can't betray my Love for WBDS. This is where I found JI CHANG WOOK...he's adorable! The infectious smile. I can't get enough of him...found him & enjoying him as Donghae in Smile, DH.
I'm glad WBDS is extended. I love the action/martial arts. The veteran actors superb acting is a bonus too.
JCW & YSH...nom nom nom.
I like TPM too but its getting sadder & makes me so mad at the greed for power. I check history if this is true. Manipulate & kill for power. Its written.
I've just found another saeguk that is so full of energy & action...King Gwanggaeto, the great played by Lee Tae Gon. Wow, he's great!

About TPM. I read some background/history about the reign of the young king. So bullied & helpless & killed by strangulation as ordered & agreed by Prince Yo Sang's officials. So Yang crowned himself King Sejo.

The Prince in WBDS has many loyal supporters & grandfather protecting him so I'm confident he's safe from all the plots to kill him. Thank goodness for that otherwise Yi San would have been killed at a young age too.

Bad news if they WDS ep 21,22 dont get aired due to public holidays. Maybe I'd just rewatch my favorite episodes.
Can't wait to see the love triangles of DS/Y/JS; DS/JJ/Painter; DS/Y/kejo?...just kidding. I love the love of DS/Y.
I had a good laugh when Yun warned the disabled shrieking assassin...not to act rashly "Use that body of yours. Even pumpkins won't move!"

I've been watching this drama for several episodes and now I just watched the 11th episode. This is an epic drama, but there's one thing that i don't really understand.
Why did Yeo Woon choose to be an assassin? I don't know if I missed something here, but from what I saw, actually he didn't want to kill his friends, but it's like he was forced to do it.
Can anyone explain to me the reason?

that's a good question i think if you look back at the previous eps when he his dad died he has thought he was destined to be a killer and live a sad life also he went with cheon to to hoksa chorong and was trained to be one it's hard to explain you should catch up with the other eps you may get it more,,,,,,,, someone else will probably be able to explain it alot better than me lolz

Yeo Un was trained by Cheon as his successor,the head of the Hoksa Chorong {the Assassin group} And he thinks that he is destined to be such ,cause when his Father has been beating him up and he got nowhere to go,Cheon was the one there for him...He was brainwashed or taught that this the thing that he has to do in his life.

I think he joined Sa Mo a little bit later ,and so never really have a positive marker in his life till then. Yeah even his Father is trhe friend os Sa Mo and Gwang taek { the good one} he was never a saint nor a good one either..
