Scarlet Heart’s princes share bath time, games, and a lady love

They bathe together? Did Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Goryeo turn into fanfic when I wasn’t looking? The second teaser is out for the upcoming SBS fantasy saguek, which is turning out to be fantasy in more ways than one: Our 21st-century heroine gets transported to Goryeo, where a ginormous family of beautiful princes seems to be living quite harmoniously, at least before love and political ambition will tear the bromance apart. So basically, enjoy the communal baths while you can. Seven flower boys in one bath seems like overkill, but who am I to argue with history?

The time-travel drama stars IU as the modern woman who wakes up one day in the body of her Goryeo-era doppelganger, and Lee Jun-ki as the masked prince dead-set on not losing his kingdom or the woman he loves. Kang Haneul plays his main rival for the heroine’s affections, not that she’ll have any shortage of interest from the rest of the princes, played by Hong Jong-hyun, Nam Joo-hyuk, Baekhyun, Ji-soo, and Yoon Sun-woo.

Co-starring are Kim Sung-kyun (Answer Me 1988) as a genius royal astronomer, Kang Hanna (Mom) as Kang Haneul’s ambitious sister, Jin Ki-joo (Splish Splash Love) as IU’s maid and helpful guide in Goryeo, Seohyun (Passionate Love) as a princess who lives for revenge against the royal family, and Z.Hera (Moorim School) as a general’s daughter and fierce warrior.

The second teaser opens with the boys playing a game together, all smiles, while IU says in voiceover: “Goryeo?! Just how many sons does Taejo have?” She then bows before King Taejo awkwardly, probably mimicking what she’s seen in dramas (hey, it’s what I would do!). She’s in for another shock when she comes upon the princes bathing, and then Kang Haneul looks at her curiously and notes, “You seem like someone else.”

She takes issue with Lee Jun-ki calling her “his thing,” so he leans in and asks, “Shall I call you my person?” Ji-soo, Nam Joo-hyuk, and Kang Haneul all seem to be falling for her in turn, but in the end Lee Jun-ki catches her in his arms and says, “I missed you. I won’t ever lose you.” I was kind of looking forward to experiencing seventh-lead syndrome for the first time ever, but Lee Jun-ki and his mane of glory aren’t really letting me get anywhere past OTP-landia.

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Goryeo follows Doctors on August 29.

I personally hope they make it their own story. Not just because I wasn't a big fan of the original, but also because I find it a lot more interesting and better proof of skills when you can find a way to turn a "copy" into something different.

Anyway, as long as it's good... ;)

Honestly it already looks pretty different. I'm personally with them making it their own as long as they make the protagonist just as smart, resourceful, and articulate as she was in the original. Everything else can be changed but I NEED my strong heroine. That was what made the original so good and man, if they make her into a silly Mary Sue... there will be hell to pay. And by hell I mean me drowning in self-pity and ice cream.

You know, I can't recall a single shirtless scene, either, but it's strange, he always appears shirtless to me in my dreams.

I don't remember if he was topless in My Girl but there was a scene where he's posing around in his bath robe and asking Lee Dong Wook if he likes what he sees. hehehe

0

I think there were some shirtless scenes in SWWTN but it was not very prominent. Check out ep 2 where he *spoilers* watches her undress and also lies on her to maintain her cover. I'm still suprised at all the openely sexual references in that drama.

0

He definitely had several shower scenes in Two Weeks.

0

We are introduced to his character in My Girl when he's jumping out of bed, but I can't really remember much. I agree with Two Weeks and Scholar but generally you see a little. I also agree Scholar had quite a bit of sensuality in it.

@YY hahah oh my gosh, good for you, those must be good dreams!

@Jona...I just went back through the Two Weeks recaps here on DB (for research obviously, and you're right he definitely has some bath time scenes so now will have to investigate some more. Research of the best kind! ;)

0

@sorrynotsorry OMG you're right! Hahaha his intro was a "bed scene" and him struggling into his clothes right away.

I mostly only remember his hair in that show. And the almost-second lead syndrome he gave me.

0

mary, I REMEMBER!!!!! The bed scene in My Girl!!!! He had a smooooooth chest, unblemished and silkier than silk - and what you said reminded me of where I'd seen him topless before - The King and the Clown!! There was one scene where his butt was half exposed, and so this set me thinking, LJK doesn't appear in the bath scene, this drama is called Moon Lovers, so does this mean he's a *gasp* mooner, not a bather? Can we look forward to broody mooning from LJK?

I don't get this bizarre mentality that prizes an actress' looks over all else.

I mean, Gong Hyo-jin, Kim Go-eun and Jung Eun-ji are considered "plain" too, but they're good actresses. Give me those women (or IU, if she too is 'plain') ahead of the vaunted 'natural beauties' who can't act despite years of experience.

Pretty much this. Acting >> looks for me as well.

Also, the main female lead isn't supposed to be stunningly gorgeous anyways--Ruoxi is described as fresh faced, but it's her sister who's the beauty of the family. So IU's girl-next-door looks and vibe is actually appropriate.

Yesss, this teaser is basically what I expected out of the drama at first - a pretty reverse harem and some princely interaction (through a bath scene no less *shot*)

The music is also much lighter, which is good since I thought it would be completely serious throughout the story. Not that I mind seriousness - I just want some moments of happiness and fun with the main cast, dammit!

in the name of historical accuracy, since clothes were harder to come by those days, khmm. even for royals. let´s say they run out of shirt fabric every 2 days. spontanious combustion because of the hotness the shirts have to stand every day. actually, that poster of Teacher emitting smoke was just that. he was about to lose all his clothes. and thats why they jump in water but too late. and then they come out rawring angrily "wheeeeeeaaaaarr is my shirrrtt" musles all tense. actually this whole drama is probably a quest for the missing shirt.

redfox, why wear shirts which will self-combust in two days? I say get rid of the shirts and everything else; just don LJK's eyemasks, cutouts and all, in strategic spots. Wouldn't that save a lot of fabric?

well a heavy promotion but I just want to said that
Seohyun picture (the lady with knife) is badass,

a gaze is one thing but the posture, the costume, her make up and the freaking knife make me choose her as the best picture of all cast here,

Idk what to said but that exactly how I think the real Ruoxi is , an elegant lady who can hold a knife (by his intelligence), even if the character of that girl here probably used it for dancing,
no offense to IU but I just really like that picture

Ruoxi is strong in will but has is not a pugilist by any means in the original material. She's not a warrior. The only time she held a weapon was to threaten to commit suicide. So your concept of the "real" Ruoxi is without basis.

thank you then,
I don't mean to compare IU and Seohyun role or acting,
I just think Seohyun picture is styled better than IU since this adaptation looked like an action-packed drama (all the swords and blood) rather than political theme,

It just about the picture/photoshoot since I like Seohyun the best, wished they could give IU another pictorial like this ,
kind of mature-like promotional picture than her previous one,
it just about the photoshoot,

I hope so too. Liu Shi Shi was familiar with historical dramas and have been in almost a dozen before BBJX. This would IU's first with a rather heavy load to carry.

I enjoyed the actors of the original (Shi Xiao Qun, Nicky Wu, Kevin Cheng, Annie Liu, Damian Lau etc). Obviously they weren't going for the pretty with the princes and they kept the history intact.

I love the women in the original and I'm really looking forward to Hae-soo's relationship with her older sister. I hope they are going to be as close as the original.

Rawr.

Can it be August 29 already, my gosh. Look at them all.. fallen under the spell of Lee Jun Ki though (-how can one look so frickin pretty yet so badass and so hot and that voice and his eyes, I just-) and not really complaining about it!

Also an international watcher here... What's going to be the best method to watch this? It's pre produced so it's going to be subbed already right? Dramafever? Viki? Someone help a sister out please assets!

Pre-produced doesn't necessarily mean pre-subbed unless the licensed sites acquire the episodes in advance to work on subbing? I'm suspecting Chinese subs might be pre-subbed due to the simultaneous broadcast in Korea and China, so the China version might have done the subbing already for viewers. I'm not sure if they've done the dubbing though, as it's common to dub everyone in dramas televised in China even when the actors are Chinese. However, the post-production usually takes many months to complete before the air date. But I don't think they've had as much time with this production. Guess we'll wait and see. ^^

For Korea, not sure if there will be any exclusivity for this series' license; if not, you can probably find the show as it airs on Viki and DramaFever, and their teams will sub as the episodes roll out. =)

@Lisa_wackycashew thanks so much for the info!! At least I will actually BE in asia when this airs, so won't have to endure the extra struggle of a time difference, at least for the first half of the show.

Praying again to the drama gods, pleeeeease let this one be good: i wish for an awesome plot and awesome ratings to go with it!!

@IvoryLight You can just call me Lisa if it's easier. I saw someone else with the same name, so I modified mine. XD

Wow, you'll be in Asia when this airs! Reminds me of the time when I was in Korea and saw bits of BOF on TV. =) Have fun! I won't be able to watch till I get home from work and Korea is 13 hours ahead. XD But I might check if there are Chinese subs available first before the English rolls out. I'm Chinese and usually for sageuks, Chinese subs can be more accurate due to the language used back then.

Oh yes! I'm expecting this to be a big hit! So, I'd better not be disappointed. I loved the original series and really want this adaptation to have its own colour and also get people's attention. =) Really rooting for the whole cast to do well.

@Lisa oooh that's so lucky you'll be able to have a good quality subbing experience. I love Drama Fever but sometimes the translations or should I say the phrasings and real meanings get lost in the English versions! Case in point this teaser...when LJK leans into IU and says "Should I call you my person then?" I've seen other translations where he's asking if he should call her his 'woman' instead. I mean similar enough in meaning, but one is a little (a lot) hotter than the other and now I don't know if he said 'my person' or if he said 'my woman' and how will I sleep without knowing??

I haven't watched the c-drama version or read the novel which is both good and bad. I'm fairly confident that the leads will be able to pull through on this, acting wise, but sending lots of positive vibes and energy that the plot and writing will be good! There's enough pretty here to keep the ratings afloat for quite a while, but PLEASE don't be like Heirs where I was quietly bewildered about why the ratings were so high since the plot was so so thin. I mean, I'll be happy if the ratings are high either way (because I looove LJK, he is a LITERAL ray of sunshine and deserves allll the good things) but is it too much to ask that the story deserves it as well?

He said the actual word "person", not the actual word for "woman". I think, if the intent was really "Should I call you my woman?" the writer would've just used that word instead. :)

@mary hehe thanks for laying the mystery to rest. I guess it's a little early to be dropping all the most heart stopping moments, but considering he already told her he missed her and won't lose her, in that sexy sexy send-shivers-down-my-spine voice of his, I was still hoping it was the latter.

D-13!! Come on promo gods, send more stills and teasers our way!!

@IvoryLight Hahaha! You totally made me LOL! Mary already unravelled the mystery for you. He used "saram" = person, but can be interpreted in meaning as "sarang" = love or "yeoja" = girl/woman or "yeonin" = lover. Actually, my personal preference is Viki over DramaFever for subbing accuracy, but with the licensing, sometimes only one of the sites will have a series, so I subscribe to both. =) And because of the origin of the languages plus the history, the old speech along with all those royal or official positions as well as idioms and such can be more accurately translated into Chinese. It can be tricky to find the English equivalent at times, but the volunteers who are great at translating sageuks do their best. ^^

I saw the C-drama first, then read the novel. I am always curious about the source material and like to compare what the author had envisioned vs. how the production team interpreted the story to bring it to life. The C-drama was fairly true to the novel with not that many changes. The cast was excellent and many actors made a name for themselves if they were rookies, or re-cemented their names if they were veterans. I really liked all the princes, especially Nicky Wu, who played 4th Prince. The heroine Ruoxi was played by Cecilia Liu, who truly did an amazing job and is probably her most pivotal role in her career. And in real life the two leads fell in love while filming the sequel set in modern times. They're not married. =)

LJG is a terrific actor and I've enjoyed his works. That's why I was super excited when I heard about the remake and the names started to roll out. KHN is a great actor as well. Of course, my fave puppy Jisoo being in this was the cherry on top. Doesn't hurt that I'm also fond of NJH, maybe cuz he is besties with Jisoo. Haha... Let's just say this is THE most anticipated drama of the year for me. ^^

It might not be a popular opinion, but I'm hoping the drama is not mainly fluffy comic scenes and hot baths, so this teaser is less appealing to me.

I'm hoping for a balance of fun and thrill, but if it has to be more of one than the other, I'll take the thrill. Time-travelling comedy tends to fall into cliches a lot, and I'm not too down.

Anyway, just hoping it's good...

I think some lighter moments are in the beginning but my recall of this is it gets brutal pretty quickly. Of course they are following the book more than the cdrama but I think that drama actually was pretty faithful to the source material.

I guess we will see in a few weeks.

At work right now.. can't watch the teaser. Is this comedy? Or is it going to be more serious like Faith?

It will have a big dosis of comedy at the beginning with some serious stuff...and later on it will become really dark. The original story was also like that.

I am a big fan of scarlet heart original series so i am looking forward to this drama. I fall in love at first sight with 4th prince (played by nicky wu) from the first ep where everyone adored 8th prince more and i wouldn't even know who she will ended up with. And now it's the same with Lee Junki and his mane of glory. Lol. And IU looks refreshing too! Can't wait. ^^

Yes! The court astronomer seems to be channeling Jules Verne. Gave me whiplash...

In K-dramas, the female to male ratio is always not equal; female leads will have at least two male leads who will fall in love with her. Recently they even have 1:4 (Cinderella and The Four Knights). In Sageuk fashion, the proportion got worse. So Scarlet Hearts will have 1:7?

Where I came from, I have to fight a long battle before the score is 1:1 (-_-;)

I am so going to Seoul now, or Goryeo if I can teleport.

Also, I'm about to commit sacrilege here, but I actually dig the look of IU with Kang Haneul? They look like they've got a much wider age gap than just 3 years, but there's something there.

(I will keep oppa for myself, thank you very much. What OTP?!)

After seeing that pic of her leaning on him, I REALLY want to see what they're like in the drama. Or in their own drama.

(but then there was also that cover with oppa smouldering it up and basically declaring a non-verbal 'MINE!' on IU, so I'm torn. Though I still want him for myself!)

Ji Soo is such a puppy. I adore him but he will always remind me of 5m 50cm. He really caught my attention in Page Turner and I ended up watching the drama because of him.

That is reason enough. Teehee~ I love that Jisoo is in this because the original C-drama was huge and I'm glad he's attached to a major production that will be viewed by many! Also, it doesn't hurt that I like the others as well. ^^
