The dragons take flight

Well that was fast. I asked for a teaser with Kim Myung-min and Yoo Ah-in in the same frame, and it’s here. I would also like a billion dollars and a pony, just in case that works. The latest teaser for SBS’s sageuk epic Six Flying Dragons is out, and it features the long-awaited meeting between our two main characters. Granted, the scene lasts about a nanosecond, and Kim Myung-min doesn’t even speak, for crying out loud. Really?

The action looks like it’s going to be highly stylized (apparently the flying dragons really do fly, or at least the sword-fighting ones do). The drama is about six key figures who dream of a better country and bring about the end of the Goryeo dynasty and establish Joseon. The teaser’s captions read: “In a world dominated by power, we mourn justice. For a new world, six dragons take flight.”

Kim Myung-min plays Jung Do-jeon, a visionary scholar who helped Lee Seong-gye overthrow Goryeo, and was also a teacher to his son Lee Bang-won (Yoo Ah-in). So our leads will begin the story as teacher and pupil, fighting on the same side with bright hopes for building a new nation. Later they will become political rivals, as Lee Bang-won angles for the throne.

Yoo Ah-in’s character Lee Bang-won is described as having a relatively carefree childhood because he was fifth in line for the throne. He’s smart and driven, reserved with his words, and intent on learning how to make good judgments. But when he does act on his thoughts, he’s like a swift, covert blade. In the teaser, he greets his teacher Jung Do-jeon eagerly: “I have waited for such a long time.” Not nearly as long as we have.

Six Flying Dragons premieres October 5.

prettysup ~

It's been my experience that 50 episode programs that involve a character pursuing the throne, the story of their pursuit is entertaining. Once they achieve the throne the plot usually takes a turn to the mundane. Watch the first 25-30 episodes ?

Ah you're right! Leslie Cheung in Ashes of Time :-)

Someone also said he looks like James McAvoy and another said Bidam in QSD, and I absolutely agree.

How's he able to make the stache look so good? Rare indeed.

I don't know, it all looks (and sounds) a bit cheesy so far, the young actors don't seem terribly impressive, and Kim Myung Min isn't doing very much other than being rather whiskery under a large hat. Then again, it's just a few seconds of footage.

These trailers are really making me nervous!

Thankfully the people who make trailers aren't the same people who make shows. My biggest concern is the array of shots between the silly graphics. They look very low budget. So, great cinematographer, but strong possibility for disbelief non-suspension. I really hope I'm wrong! I want this to be good. It's been a while since there's been a good saeguk!

The cast alone is worth checking out! Now let's pray the writer could keep 50 eps interesting all the way...

This is barely even on my radar. The whole plot sounds cheesy and a lot like some of the Chinese produced martial arts shows - all impossible stunts and a really bad plot (if there is any plot at all).

If SBS wants this 50-eps epic drama as their 25th Commemoration of Drama Department, they'd better be all out and not leaving us with "eh?" Been a long while since the last time they produced a good sageuk.

I think this drama looks like it could be great. Let's just hope it's interesting enough to last 50 episodes.

The writing/directing team made Tree with Deep Roots, one of the few sageuk dramas that kept me engrossed in the story and the characters for the entire show. And with this cast? so excited!

50 episodes with Kim Myung-min is more like a dream for me. I cannot believe reality made it happen. Oh life is good! (But his Immortal Admiral Yi Soon-shin is 100+ Episodes waaaa)

This comes from Dae Jang Geum and Queen Seon Deok's writer? Well why didn't you say so?? I will definitely find it easy - a piece of cake - to watch 50 episodes, then.

Wait who is the other young actor? I've been staring at him in each of these posts and not registering him at all at the same time, lol. Who does he play? What's the actors name?

You mean the one in the second last picture? His name is Yoon Kyun Sang, and I think most people will recognize him from his role as Lee Jong Suk's older brother in Pinocchio. He was most recently in the drama The Time I've Love You.

His role came up in a DB article, so I'll just copy and paste that:
"In addition to the confirmed cast, up-and-comer Yoon Kyun-sang (Pinocchio) is being courted to join the drama as Yoo Ah-in’s head bodyguard. He’ll be the prequel version of Jo Jin-woong’s character in Tree, Mu-hyul. He’s a dim-witted boy who grows up dirt-poor and having to take care of his enormous family, but he eventually becomes the greatest swordsman in the land, rising to the head of the royal bodyguard unit that defends the king."

Ugh, I hate that chick. I hope she doesn't have a loveline with Yoo Ah In. They had ZERO chemistry in Fashion King. In fact, she has had zero chemistry with ALL her previous hot male leads! Ugh, she's such a drama killer!

The only 50 episodes dramas I finished were The Emperor of the Sea and Empress Ki. Well. Wait. I forgot Dong Yi. Had dropped even Splendid Politics in the middle, and it has Cha Seung-won!! The team behind Tree with Deep Roots sounds promising ... but it was only 24 great episodes. What's wrong with 25 episodes?! Or 30? Action scenes are much better when condensed. Not so sure about the shorter romance, tho (Please, come back for 5 more episodes, chef!) :)
