More flower boy princes for Scarlet Heart: Goryeo

I think this show is really planning to release one measly still per week. It seems stingy, given the enormous cast of pretty boy princes they’ve got, but I guess that’s how you make the drama promo last. Here’s another peek at two more princes from SBS’s upcoming time-travel fantasy sageuk Scarlet Heart: Goryeo, starring Lee Jun-ki (Scholar Who Walks the Night) as a Goryeo prince and IU (The Producers) as the modern-day woman who travels back to his era and gets entangled in a complex web of lovelines in the royal family.

Ji-soo (Page Turner) plays the youngest prince of the lot, a sweet character who’s loved by all and has a particular interest in martial arts. Nam Joo-hyuk (Who Are You—School 2015), on the other hand, is a prince with refined taste in art, who is sophisticated and elegant without even trying. So they sound like opposites, though if their short stint on reality travel show Flower Boy Bromance was any indication, they’ll be very cute and bromancey together.

The other princes include Kang Haneul (Misaeng), Hong Jong-hyun (Mama), Baekhyun (of EXO fame), Kim San-ho (Rude Miss Young-ae), and Yoon Sun-woo (Devoted Min Deul-le), which is already too many for me to keep track of. I’m honestly not sure how relative rookies Hong Jong-hyun, Ji-soo, Nam Joo-hyuk, or Baekhyun will fare in their first historical drama, but I’m really in it for Lee Jun-ki and IU and their time-travel love story. Everyone seems to rave about the original Chinese drama Bu Bu Jing Xin, so I’m optimistic about the story. Also, eye candy never hurt anybody.

Scarlet Heart: Goryeo will air on Mondays and Tuesdays beginning August 29.

No, they are different dramas.

Scarlet Heart: Goryeo is now the official name of this drama. It was known as Moon Lovers before that.
It's based on Chinese novelist Tong Hua's Bu Bu Jing Xin.

Moonlight Drawn by Clouds is a youth sageuk based on a web novel called Gooreumi Geurin Dalbit.

I'm getting bad vibes with this adaptation, what with the acting prowess for some of the cast, and the atrocious hairstyles and styling.

Nothing can top the C-drama version which is A+ from the fantastic cast especially the leads who are now married in real life (no one overacted or underacted), to the writing, the direction, the beautiful cinematography, the styling and amazing costumes, etc.

Whenever I get sad about Yoo Ah-in's imminent enlistment, I try to remember that Ji Soo is here to give me those early-Yoo Ah-in feels. I'm totally here for anything with this kid in it.

If BBJX is any indicator, I will ship myself with 13th and 14th princes, in this case Nam Joo Hyuk and Ji Soo.
The female lead can have the 4th Prince by herself. Hehehe

Haha, I felt the same way about the princes in BBJX.

Lee Jun Ki as 4th Prince already looks boring. With the masquerade like eye patch and road kill as his fringe, it's impossible to take him seriously as one who is gunning for the throne.

In terms of pulling off their roles, I have the highest hopes for Kang Haneul and Ji Soo.

The show hasn't even started yet.
It might surprise you in a good way.

Script writers and PD-nim, please, DON'T blew it!

A hit novel and a hit c-drama to set expectation bar? It's a double edged sword. It may solidify you to stardom, or it may bury you alive. Just. Dont. Blew. It.

I try to change my perspective on korean version of BBJX though. The setting should be in Joseon, so the history and scenery might differ a little, as well as the clothings and the hairstyle. So I'm hoping a fresh start.

I am liking how the princes are portrayed though. They're different and stylish, and...they have hair. Hahaha. I'm looking forward to see them in action.

It's a remake or a Korean adaptation, doesn't matter. It would be silly to expect a replica of the C drama. But I do want something as stylish and high quality like the C drama and the stills so far aren't promising.

But still, Scarlet Heart would still follow the novel right? So the characterizations and the plot would still follow the novel. I honestly don't have high expectations and the C-drama itself already setting a high bar to climb. I just wish the Korean version would be good or at least better than Lee Jun Ki's last 2 sageuks.

You don't mean SWWTN, do you? That was bad. Joseon Gunman was better but boring. Scarlet Heart should aim for something higher to do justice to the novel. I found the Chinese historical events which the story was based on very interesting. Since the Koreans went ahead to adapt their own, I assume they have something good too. Maybe, I have the wrong expectations.

Imposible to follow the novel, they are adapting it to actual historical korean figures. That is why they are portrayed different. We can't expect it to follow chinese historical figures that also existed, because we can't change history. Its better to think that they are taking some topics, but it would be totally different. It has already been said by the leads to their fans.

0

Yeah I know that it's impossible to copy Chinese history and paste it into the drama. But one thing I found, the Goryeo setting is actually quite similar with the Qing Dynasty in which the story based on.
-The main male lead are both 4th Prince and both also have several similar features. They're not regarded as the heir to the throne at the beginning, but eventually ascending the throne.
-They also have many political rivals, including their brothers.
-Goryeo and Qing (Manchu) people love horses and have great horse riding skills and horse racing is one minor part in BBJX and the novel.
-The political battle between the brothers. I think it will be interesting. Shine or Go Crazy uses same period and time as Scarlet Heart: Ryeo, we could imagine from SOGC how the political battle will be presented and modified here.

There's no way you can make me believe that they are princes when they can't even groom their hair properly.

Someone please recommend the stylist from King of Lanling. The males are really well groomed with individual hairstyles in that show. ☺

Honestly, I'm not too worried about either Jisoo or NJH in this drama.

Jisoo has enough charisma to last him 2 and a half lifetimes. This charisma will help cover any flaws he may have tbh. NJH, on the other hand, will do okay as long as he's not a leading character (like in School 2015 *shudders) which he isn't, so he'll do fine. He also excels at the whole nice boy/BFFL image (which is his role in this drama if I'm not mistaken) so I think he'll be able to manage.

BH any HJH are the two I'm most worried about. I've never seen BH acting before and HJH's acting is more wooden than my floor boards.

I don't know why but I seem to get a funny feeling regarding these flower boy-sageuk dramas: Scarlet Heart: Goryeo, Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, Hwarang. The Beginning. And I have yet to pronounce whether this is a positive or a negative feeling.
I guess I could say flower couple-sageuk dramas...
I don't know...but I am somehow interested...

I just started the C-version. This will give me time to finish before the K-version starts.

Although I'm really only interested in this for Lee Jun Ki.

Ji Soo holy sh^ts gonna kill me like the original Bu Bu did.

It wasn't just the leads that brought intense and delightful pain, but all of the princes. My fav was 14.

Let's hope K Bu Bu gets the OST right, too. Lots of traditional music to set the atmosphere.

In the original I shipped her with 14th prince because I loved him the most. He was just my kind of guy. Carefree, loyal and a bit of a mama's boy. He was his mother's favorite for a reason. He's the kind of prince who would renounced his title to be with his girl. A good husband material because he was patient and not forceful.
I was happy and sad for him in the end but at least she was with him.
