Ji Jin-hee picks sageuk for next drama

I wonder if Ji Jin-hee has an explicit career strategy to alternate sageuk with contemporary, since that’s basically what he’s been doing the past decade. There was Joseon-era Dae Jang Geum, then modern dramas Spotlight and The Man Who Can’t Marry, then back to sageuk for Dong Yi, back to the future for Take Care of Us, Captain, and now back to the past.

The project is set in the late Goryeo period and is called The Great Seer, aka Dae Poong Soo; I’ve also seen it translated as Great Geomancer, but that just sounds weird. I would have called it Great Prophet, but that conveys a religious overtone that isn’t in the meaning; the word refers to those gurus in advisory positions to court officials, who would counsel rulers and seek auspicious signs. Basically, they had a lot of sway over those in power.

In this drama, set in Goryeo’s twilight years, these seers put their support behind a new hero and back him as he works to establish a new nation. That hero is Lee Sung-gye (also written Yi Seong-gye), and will be played by Ji Jin-hee. He’s a real historical figure, but this drama will be departing from trufax (so, like any other sageuk, then?) as it explores the transition from Goryeo to Joseon in what Korean media calls — to my deep chagrin — “faction.” You know, “fact” plus “fiction.” (Groaaaaan. These smug wordsmiths really ought to consult their dictionaries to make sure their new creations don’t actually mean something else.)

But I digress. In real life, Yi Seong-gye was a key figure in the overthrow of the Goryeo dynasty in the late 14th century. He was the founder of the Joseon state, bringing to power the Yi (Lee) dynasty that would rule for the next 500 years. Posthumously known as Taejo, first Joseon king, he was father to Taejong and grandfather to Sejong. Names you probably recognize if you’ve seen a lot of sageuks, such as Tree With Deep Roots.

Ji Jin-hee’s version of the character is described as a man who could enjoy bawdy talk with gisaengs — unlike the high-ranking officials who emphasized honor and dignity — and is called a “light-hearted general,” though once on the battlefield he turns fierce and charismatic. Well, yeah, it’s Ji Jin-hee; the man is fierce and charismatic. (Caveat: He hasn’t signed contracts, he’s probably going to do it, he’s tentatively agreed — the usual cautious doublespeak abounds. But it sounds like Ji is a lock.)

Directing is Lee Yong-seok, who has some prior fusion-sageuk experience; he’s the PD who did Lee Jun-ki’s Iljimae. The drama had initially been rumored to be casting Joo Ji-hoon in his drama comeback (along with New Gisaeng Story’s Im Soo-hyang, who, bleh), but this casting change seems like a big step up. Nothing wrong with Joo, but Ji Jin-hee’s got more gravitas to carry a large-scale sageuk. The project was initially planned as a 50-episode series, but has settled on 36 instead.

The Great Seer / Dae Poong Soo plans to begin filming in April or May and will be a Monday-Tuesday SBS show.

Most pretty boys aren't really even "pretty"; aside from Song Joong ki, Kim Bum and a few others (who have boyish good looks), the rest just have that weird androgynous look (and I don't know how Lee Seung gi ever got included in the pretty boy grouping).

As for Ji Jin hee, he's up there with the likes of Oh Ji ho, Kim Sung soo, Song Seung seon and a few others in having the classic male features (has one of the best chins/jawlines in the industry).

I think I watched all of his dramas although I haven't finished Take Care of Us Captain yet but I'm planning to. Love. Love. Love.

Another drama to a must watch list!

For me, he is the most handsome actor in Korea who has that old school charm of what is like to be a star. He is more like Korea's Robert Redford. One look at him and you know that he is a celebrity, an actor.

I love this guy!!!

I fell in love with him in the movie Paradise. He is great in this movie. If you have not seen it, you can watch it with English subs on Drama Fever. The little girl in the movie is played by Kim You Jung, who was excellent. So, I was not surprised at all by how good she was in Moon Embraces the Sun. She was stealing scenes even in 2009!

There seems to be a bias here against GHS, but let me tell you that Take care of Us, Captain is a very good human drama. It is not flawless but it has depth and substance. When you have enough of fluff and eye-candy(both the male leads are good-looking in a manly way), take time to watch it. The OSTs were good,too. The dialogue was meaningful and the stories touche the heart. All the cast did a good job of their characters. Give it a try for yourself.

Take Care of Us might not be the best drama there is but it's not bad at all. The main reason I watch it is because of JJH but the story turns out to be interesting enough to lure me in and keep on watching and not abandoning it like many other dramas.

0

I loved "Take care of us, Captain" too! It has a few slightly boring/slow scenes but other than that I really enjoyed the entire show. More so than Moon/Sun in fact.

GHS may seem a little over-acting in certain scenes but other than that, I actually think she isn't that bad an actress. I certainly have to agree that in her shows, she tend to over act, but she actually first caught my attention in Seo Dong Yeo (Song of the Prince) and though she was just some minor character, I thought she acted really well. I didn't really like her character in Boys Over Flowers though. But sometimes, it might just be the character in the drama. Because of Seo Dong Yo, I certainly am going to insist she is a good actress actually and I will be looking forward to her other shows. :)

Soe Dong Yeo! Yes, GHS was stealing the scenes with her small roles. She was great in Song of the Prince (well, I like her too in Pure Heart of 19). Personally I don't understand all these anti GHS here.

Although to be honest I'm terribly disappointed with her kissing scene in Take Care of Us Captain. She has the chance to kiss JJH and yet she doesn't even open her mouth! If it were me I would eat him alive!

So, perhaps I do understand a little.....

i like her in Seodong Yo also. It is the first drama i have seen her in and she really did a very good job with her small role there.

I have been hoping that GHS and Jo Hyun Jae will do a drama together someday.

I couldn't stand GHS but I gave her a chance in Captain and I think she came a long way...she has improved and I watced it primarily for JJH. The drama is heartwarming, and the chemistry there. I've no regrets though I'm a fan of GHS yet, I'm not gonna block that road ...

Maria, I hope that you'll agree that Dramabeans is a place where we can respectfully disagree with one another.

Wow maria! Starry may have disagreed with you about Gu Hyesun's abilities as an actress, but she did agree and give props to Gu Hyesun for being hardworking. I think you should have used that as an Olive Branch and just agreed on one thing, while also agreeing to disagree on the other. If you want people to like Gu Hyesun, attacking people for not being a diehard fan like you is another way to turn people against your bias. Many a-time people turn away from taking a second look at celebrities because the fans for that celebrity go on rampages against anyone who so much as voice criticism (constructive or otherwise).

And SERIOUSLY!!! What is it with people and using popularity awards (or ratings) as a basis for someone's acting abilities? That popularity award was from the height of her career (so far) on the heels of BOF, so of course people would've voted for her. If you read the articles recently released about her, I can assure you she won't be winning popularity awards anytime soon. If you want to talk about her acting skills, then pick her other awards that were based on acting.

I don't have an opinion on her since I've not seen any of her dramas, and what I have seen of BOF.... Well, let's just say I think Hanadan (j-dorama) is a hard act to follow. Not her fault of course. I'm just saying maybe instead of villain-izing everyone, you can stop for a second and see that some people may not like Gu Hyesun, but do acknowledge some of her good points as well.

0

@ani ...for someone who has no opnion of her...you are exerting way too much energy trying to defend people who are saying negative things about ghs which makes me wonder why...
as for the popularity award , well at least she got one which is not too bad for someone who is being labeled as an actress with no charisma.....after all the netizens are the ones who voted for her which if you use logic means a lot of people find her charismatic...
as to being a diehard fan....well maybe i am which makes you what? .....a diehard anti fan?
@houstontwin....why can't i respectfully disagree with you? where was the disrespect? just because i am trying to figure out reasons why you are negative about ghs means there is disrespect. i think it is the other way around.
anyhow....why spend both of your time on someone you particularly do not like? life is too short to live it this way...go find someone you can be positive about...maybe you can look at things and people in a better way. have a good life no a better life!

0

*jumps out of the pan and straight into the fire*

Heh. Er, no. I'm not defending people for attacking Gu Hye-sun or for voicing their OPINIONS regarding her. I was trying to advice that maybe instead of attacking everyone, you can try to talk to them without calling them antis, haters, or jealous. Nothing wrong with defending your girl, but alienating yourself by being hostile is not the best approach.

I can't be a diehard anti-fan if I'm not even an anti-fan. I will watch a show she's on if I have time and if the drama's plot piques my interest.

you can laugh all about it and justify your dislike for her but no one can not deny the fact that one of the main reason why someone dislike someone is most likely related to some sort of jealousy which can be easily denied. Well for someone who is such a bad actress she has won the Excellence award in her acting which is more than what i can say about some overrated actresses in her generation!

Er, I disliked people before, but I can assure you they were not worth the time of day it takes to be jealous. I've got a boss I would drive a stake through at the blink of an eye if someone ever told me she was a vampire and was out to destroy humankind. I can assure you, there's nothing about that power hungry woman to be jealous about. So no, I highly doubt some of these people dislike Gu Hyesun out of jealousy.

P.S. And no, I neither like nor dislike Gu Hyesun because I've not seen any one of her dramas except the tidbits of BOF I did see. So please, don't eat me!

@ ani i do not think you are edible enough for me to eat you....my stomach is sensitive that way....funny how you do not like nor dislike ghs and have not seen her dramas yet you find it too easy to understand and accept why people dislike her yet you can not accept why i do like her...
i do not know why you dislike your boss for you to say what you just said about her ...my suggestion to you....find another job you can be happy about so you can spend your time on someone or something you really like!

0

Sigh. I didn't bring up my boss because I'm willing to quit my job. I brought her up as an example of people disliking a person without being jealous of them. Jealousy does not always factor in.

I never agreed with anyone here, fan or anti-fan. I reserve any judgement until after I see something for myself. I can understand you being a fan, and I can understand people for disliking whomever they choose to dislike. I just don't know why you go about saying people are jealous non-hardworking haters when you don't even know if that's true!!!! It's like saying an apple is red/green, and apples taste good, so everything red/green must taste good. Even worse, I don't understand why I'm even trying to be logical with you or why I even bother. *facepalm*

Note to Self: Don't bother. EVER!

Frustrating.

Really, you need to get over it.

GHS has a rep for not being a particularly good actress and there's usually a reason for it (and those "Excellence" awards are usually for popularity than any real gauge on acting).

I really like Yoon Eun hye, but aside from "Coffee Prince", let's just say YEH's acting has been underwhelming.

Also like Lee Yeon hee and Han Hyo joo, but aside from a role here and there that was passable, they both need to continue working on their craft.

Look at Kim Tae hee, after numerous roles, where she was panned for her acting, she nailed the role in "My Princess."

Most of the time (at least here), criticisim of acting is just that.

@ canxi That is why one has to be careful not to repeat a rumour. One cannot believe everything one read.It may well be eventually she might like to devote her life to directing .

Actually, "faction" has a second meaning that does refer to literary or cinematic work based on fact. It's of a more recent coinage, circa 1960s, but the Oxford English Dictionary includes an entry for this definition.

A manly man... that becomes a total dork in the presence of idol girls apparently.

There's certain actors that truly come alive in sageuks. I'm mostly neutral on Ji Jin Hee in trendy dramas, but when he does sageuk, it's like he turns into Yul Brenner. When he wears the hanbok, he conveys a bravado and pure joy of acting that is mostly absent everywhere else.

I just think JJH was just made to do sageuks. His mannerisms, his stance, the way he talks just seems natural to these historical dramas.
Its funny every time he would try to scold GHS character in Captain, I just kept hearing and seeing him as he was in Dong Yi. Trying to be all serious with her but still had the mischievous smirk underneath.
He looks good in anything, modern clothes and royal robes. I'm glad though to see him wearing the royal robes though. I think he's one of those actors that I would never get tired of seeing in a particular role cause it fits him and he does it so well.

JJH was one of the best parts of "Dong Yi", one of the few actors who didn't overact (probably no thanks to the PD).

Love Han Hyo joo, but in "Dong Yi" she was repeatedly doing the same annoying mannerisms that her younger self did (played by Kim Yoo Jung).

Made me think that Kim Yoo Jung wasn't a particularly good child actress, but just watched her in "The Moon That Embraces the Sun" - where she did a better job than most of the adult actors, so I'm pinning that bad acting job in "Dong Yi" on the PD.

I remember him from Dae Jang Geum and Dong Yi - not much chemistry with his ladies, gave a pleasantly gentlemanly aura. His characters were a little dull. Maybe because the scripts required him to be like that.

He looks like a guy you can talk with and have fun with though. But looks can be deceiving.

JJH is one good looking Korean Man...and he really look good in historical Saguek costume. I fell in love with him In Dae Jang guem and Dong Yi.He has very good chemistry with Lee Young ae even there was no kissing scene but the way he look at her was captivating because I felt like he was looking at me. I think GHS is one beautiful looking girl because the directors often give her nice drama to act, Take are of us captain has a good story line. I know how everyone doesn't seems to like her, I too find her a little unnatural comes to romance genre...poor girl I know all the ladies here willing to be her stand in in all the romance scene..hahaha..all the best for GHS. Awaiting patiently for JJH next adventure in drama scene.

I totally agree... Love Ji Jin Hee every moves! Saw him in He Who Can't Marry at first, was not a fan yet but he's acting was addictive. Then came Captain... totally made me fell for him hard... oppa in uniform was a sight I can never let go plus all of his outfits in here was super cool! Despite the low ratings, I think the storyline was alright and has good acting overall. Seeing a flight over my sky and airports simply gives me chills now! So i started to cyber stalked him... what a awesome man!!! Great career journey and made me start on Dong Yi... yes all 60 episodes I want to try finish in a week - no way! I'm just at ep 20 but yes oppa as King Sukjong is super charming - made me fast forward all court politics to just see him with Dong Yi in a scene. So assume I'll get to finish this earlier than expected! For all JJH fans, im sure we're all hv been waiting for a posting like this to pour our silly hearts to him!

JJH + saguek = winner! I have yet to see him in a drama where he doesn't have great chemistry with any of the lead actresses. What is it about this man?!
