Kim So-yeon and Song Chang-eui join The Great Seer

More cast additions to upcoming sageuk The Great Seer, aka Dae Poong Soo, starring Ji Jin-hee as a king and Go Soo as the seer who puts him in power. Kim So-yeon (Coffee) will be making her drama comeback as the heroine, along with Song Chang-eui (Syndrome) who has been cast as Go Soo’s nemesis. So… we’re going for star-studded, are we?

The 36-episode drama will be about the practicers of divination and the power that they hold over the fate of the country. Ji Jin-hee plays the man put into power who sees the end of the Goryeo dynasty and becomes the first king of Joseon, and Go Soo is the seer who cements that destiny. Kim So-yeon’s character will be a healer, someone who is bold when it comes to protecting her beliefs and her love. She’s also got a quirky side, which sounds strange given the drama’s tone (epic), but Kim So-yeon can pretty much pull off anything. Her character is tied to the king’s destiny, but she falls in love with the seer, which kind of messes with the program. Just a little.

Song Chang-eui plays a man of great influence, who has studied all the divination texts, and challenges Go Soo’s character at every turn. I like that there’s a seer war, behind the political one–the drama will highlight how much influence these people had over kings and kingdoms, in giving those they supported immense power.

The Great Seer plans to premiere in October on SBS.

Only in October? How will I wait till then? I really loved Ji Jin-hee in Dong-yi and maybe it's just me but I love sageuk more than these modern dramas. Okay maybe some modern dramas are awesome too, but when it comes to sageuk I feel like through them I know more and more about Korean culture and maybe about their history. :)

On my, how old is that picture of Ji Jin Hee?

Wonderful!

I love the ages of man from that dorky adolescence to that erudite nonchalance of young adulthood and finally that muscular charisma of maturity. I love them all!

Thank you for a glimpse back to what once was, it brought a smile to my face and reminded me of something that isn't so much lost but rather a fleck in what has now become.

Man, this thing is cast WELL to say the least. Now if the writting and directing can match with the awesome acting we're sure to get this drama will have the trifecta. I think this one is definitely going to be worth checking out.

I don't normally like Saeguks, but I love Kim So Yeon, so I'll give it a try. Lol, I thought it was funny when we all thought it'd be Kim So Yeon in Dr Jin, but it's Lee So Yeon, hehehe.

Required fields are marked *

Woohoo! So happy she didn't accept Dr.Jin or else she would have been overshadowed. Maybe because she was also considering this one too? JJH always gives me the impression of being 'useless' especially when watching 'Dong Yi' , will his character be like this too?

I cant wait to see GS and JJH in this :) its Go Soo's first saguek right?? Last saw him in will it snow for christmas. Oh and hopefully Ji Ji Hee's king in this drama isnt as useless as his king character in Dong Yi; he managed to both bore and piss me off with that role.

So you think that Song Chang-eui can pull it off well?
His character would have to be scary in an unusual way for the story to have any punch it seems. Hope you are all correct. It sounds like it could be a really good story.
