Faith’s first poster and another teaser

Here’s the first poster for fantasy fusion drama Faith, with the tagline: “A love that transcends space and time makes history.” Another teaser promises epic action, and features a little more interaction between the leads, one a fearless warrior and royal bodyguard and another a plastic surgeon he kidnaps from the 21st century to heal the king. I just can’t wait to find out how on earth he travels nearly seven hundred years into the future and uses his (I’m assuming) very precious one-time-doctor-snatching opportunity on a plastic surgeon. D’oh.

But what will turn out to be the case, of course, is that her presence in his time greatly alters the course of history. I’m excited to see Faith’s universe unfold because it’s definitely a fantastical version of history, and not just because there are wormholes to the 21st century lying around. It’ll be a world full of mysterious people with supernatural abilities and agendas we might not expect.

The poster features the main cast, from left to right: Philip Lee as Jang Bin, Goryeo’s best healer. Perhaps competition for the doctor heroine, but likely more of a rival for the hero in gaining her affections. Ryu Deok-hwan plays King Gongmin, who ruled Goryeo from 1351 to 1374. Next to him is Mongol Princess Noguk, his future wife and queen, played by Park Se-young. Then our leads: Lee Min-ho as Choi Young, bodyguard to the king, and Kim Hee-sun as Yoo Eun-soo, plastic surgeon and time-traveler-kidnappee.

Then there’s the supernatural trio of siblings: Yoo Oh-sung as Ki-chul, the master mind-control manipulator. Shin Eun-jung plays Hwasooin, the fire-controller. And Sung Hoon is Chun Eum-ja, who kills with the power of his flute. And no, that’s not a euphemism. I’m very interested to see what role they’ll play in the shaping of the kingdom.

Below are stills of Lee Min-ho filming underwater scenes with 7kg of full-body armor like a champ. I… don’t even know how you’d dive all day in that and not panic, let alone ACT. But his character is supposed to be so fearless that he’s prepared to die at all times and leaps into the fray without a plan or a second thought, so I guess it’s all or nothing.

Faith premieres Monday August 13 on SBS.

I'm sorry to be off topic, but I've noticed you and jb mention some dramas as if you've watched them but I don't see them in the drama ratings. I was wondering if you can include there as much as is easy to you cuz I really look at your drama ratings seriously before watching a show. I hate feeling like I've wasted my time on a drama after 9 hours or more into it when I have a long list. Thanks a lot for this site and your help on spending my free time worthwhile.

*Excitement* I can't tell you how long I've been waiting for a 'modern' woman to back in the past drama. I know some will point to 步步惊心 --which is good- [even though I am not usually wild about Chinese dramas] but I've been waiting for a Korean/Japanese drama to come out on it.

I'm happy for you xD you're funny. Even tho I can't name any show that has a woman go back in time I somehow never felt that this drama came up with anything new. I'm still considering it cuz I like fantasy and white haired characters. Tell me some very good Japanese dramas. My favorites are sexy voice and robo, and slow dance. I wish they would have Japanese drama ratings here :(

reply

Required fields are marked *

Well she looks old enough to be a successful and experienced plastic surgeon so I think it's more on the side of him looking younger.
However if we consider that he's from a time of short life expectancy where people are facing wars, violence and deadly diseases on a daily basis, then he can be considered quite old for a warrior of his time. So in the end I find this is a drama where the age difference is a bit more realistic for once.

I second and third these sentiments. There's definitely a pronounced age contrast in the photos to the point where I'd categorize her as a middle aged 'cougar' rather than a tad few years older 'noona' next to LMH. I like the storyline as others have also stated, so I hope this lead actress can pull her role off in style.

I was gonna watch it out of curiosity only,lol, since I'm not really a fan of saeguks, but then Ryu Deok Hwan was announced to be in it and that was the hook for me.

It does look interesting though, and I like the addition of magical people and hope they utilize that and make them awesome villains! Plus the costumes are really cool and I am genuinely interested to see if everyone's hair will stay PERFECTLY coifed and groomed throughout the show. Fascinated, even.

I think dr. Jin has place the bar pretty damn high for any crazy/crappy/creepy dramas to be... but who knows, they say that human creativity has no limits either it's for good or bad.
In my case, I'll just wait for the summary of ep. 1 to know if i will follow up this drama but i can't deny that the dude with the flute sounds kinda cool hehehe

I'm Min Ho biased so I'll practically watch anything as long as he's in it. However, I honestly don't understand why they chose kim hee sun as his co-star. It's not that she's old but standing next to him she looks significantly older. They don't look compatible...

Per press releases-The lead actress was cast BEFORE Lee Min Ho. LMH was not the first choice for the lead male character. This project was delayed due to casting the lead male. Lee Jun-Ki was the first choice. He however could not meet the timeline due to military service and other commitments. The filmmakers then looked at Kang Ji-Hwan for the role, but he has been in a legal dispute that is hampering his activities. Lee Min Ho was eventually cast in the role.

this looks SO GOOD. i never would watch anything sageuk, but after enjoying moon-sun and rooftop prince this year, i think this is what i've been being primed for! i grew up with kim hee-sun on my screen as a little girl, so i've an especial fondness for her and am happy to see her back.

not digging the red hair though. it's a ghastly hue that doesn't seem to be doing her any particular favors. it's my opinion that a lot of actresses would look much fresher if they'd forgo the bright hair dyes and return to more natural shades. like how suzy's hair looked in big, although i'm sure hers was artfully colored.

lee min-ho looks frigging amazing. after crushing on him super hard for the first 3 weeks that BOF was airing, i'd been indifferent ever since, but this sageuk bodyguard look seems to suit him reaallllllly well.

Crazy red hair = Woody Woodpecker look, not sexy woman! The only time I liked the crazy red hair was on the lead in History of a Salaryman where her hair color suited the character's personality. On the whole the bright red gives off a cheap hooker look.

Ohhh, Ohhhhh, aaahhh the teaser looks soo good. A real real fantasy-fantasy drama. With lots of fluffy hair. LMH looks good with long air. He also looks good with curly hair, with short hair too... okay - he always looks good.
So excited to see the main couple. The main actress looks also sweet. I do not care about the age gap. I think, it will work. Because she is doctor. A DOCTOR With license and stuff. Not a student. (Modern) Doctors should be older than 18. Otherwise it is unrealistic, even in a fantasy-drama.
So, look forward and have FAITH. Yippiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii.

I would love it, if we could spend less time talking about the age differences - IRL and in shows.

It's one of those things that once it is set in your mind and ends up coloring your perception of everything. The discussion becomes narrowed to the point where it excludes everything else good or bad about a show.

I love a lively discussion about characters, motivations, expectations, costumes, plot, believability, etc,

If we can accept that LMH actually is a warrior general who travels through time, why can't we accept that his co-star is older than him and move on?

I may be cranky today since I stayed up late watching a drama and had to come to work, but there you are.

Exactly. Where is the outrage at, for example, PMY and SSH in Dr. Jin? But they fit our idea of how things 'should' be so I guess people just gloss over it. I'll refrain from commenting on the drama, which I suspect will be a dud, but I hope it's successful on the romance front.

The actress waited like 2 years + for Faith! She couldn't act in any other drama and waited all this time while the others actors jumped the ship!

It is not she looks old but LMH looks too younger for her and this isn't her fault but the casting staff's fault.

Just love guys with long hair...Lee Min Ho, Philip Lee, and Sung Ho all ROCK this look. It's something about Asian men and long hair....so drop dead gorgeous and handsome!

Just discover Ryu Deok hwan after seeing him in the God Quiz drama series. I really enjoyed his dramas and can't wait to see him in this drama too.

Been watching the FAITH trailers which looks a really awesome fantasy sageuk epic. Kim Hee Sun is an experienced veteran actress.She is portraying a plastic surgeon so you would expect her age to be in her 30's which is her actually age.I saw her ages ago in Calla, the movie and she was excellent. The age gap doesn't bother me at all.

This drama has a strong cast of well known actors. It looks so exciting and maybe my expectations will be too high. I have to keep up my FAITH, and hopefully, the script will be fantastic too.
