The reign of blood begins in Scarlet Heart’s first teaser

Oh, is it finally time for official teasers? Here’s our first peek at SBS’s time-travel fantasy sageuk Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Goryeo, starring IU as a 21st-century woman who travels back to the early Goryeo era, and Lee Jun-ki as the prince she’ll fall in love with. The teaser, titled “Monarch of Blood,” is stylish and beautiful (and bloody, of course), setting us up for a thrilling, epic battle among princes to inherit a country.

And just by sheer numbers, it’s going to be one very complicated power struggle, with princes Kang Haneul, Hong Jong-hyun, Ji-soo, Nam Joo-hyuk, Baekhyun, and Yoon Sun-woo either vying for power themselves or having to pick a side. The teaser opens with the copy: “Just one position. The one trying to protect vs. the one trying to steal. The war has begun!” As the palace is attacked and Lee Jun-ki fights to protect his kingdom, he says in voiceover: “A place where you die if you trust others, and must doubt those close to you in order to live.”

Park Ji-young (who plays Hong Jong-hyun’s mother) says, “Goryeo must become my son’s,” and it looks like they’ll be an evil mother-son duo, if his eyeliner is anything to go by. I do wish we’d get to see more of the heroine’s introduction to this world, but I’m sure she’ll be featured in upcoming teasers. In this one IU says, “If we’d met in another world, in another time… how nice would it have been?”

Despite some fierce competition from ambitious princes Kang Haneul and Hong Jong-hyun, by the end of the teaser Lee Jun-ki declares, “I want to become emperor no matter what.” Well, you’ve got my vote.

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Goryeo follows Doctors on Mondays and Tuesdays beginning August 29.

So damn ready! Though I'm now very very nervous about Bo Gum's show. This is gorgeous and intriguing as opposed to the sweet and subtle romance expected of the other show ( why the hell cant i remember the name!?). Waiting!

Moonlight Drawn by Clouds :p I actually look forward to both, especially because they're pretty different. You always need to have a balanced drama-diet xD but I know what you mean, in Korea it'll air at the same time... won't be easy. I just hope they'll both do well.

Same here and I agree that they are different, one is a light youth romance and the other is pretty dark.

I do have a soft spot for the underdog though. I tend to stay away from the hype but Scarlet Heart has my oppa so I'll be watching both.

And Lee Jung Ki is actually an ancient vampire who play a role in changing many Korean histories and never made it alive to modern era.

The last time he lives in modern-days, he was kinda entangled with a whole complicated situation with daughter, gangster, and time limit.
Will he star in a time-travelling drama? [or has he?]
Because if he has, that means Lee Jun Ki is a vampire that never age, changes Korean history and time travels too.

POSSIBLE SPOILER

If they are following the Chinese version then she will marry the 14th prince (Ji-soo's character) in the end. Doesn't mean she loves him romantically.

0

If she marries the 14th but loves the 4th one will it be a "sad" ending? :O

0

(SPOILER)

I didn't think it was a sad ending in the Chinese version. They met again in present time. Rouxi and the 4th prince.

0

@ The other Kiara

I watched the ending (despite not watching like 94% of the drama) because my dad was watching it. Now, he may have just been emotional, but in his opinion the ending was sad even if they did meet again. In fact it actually kind of traumatised him. I remember him grumbling on about "depressing chinese dramas" and "never again" lol.

I thought the ending was quite beautiful though I didn't understand what was going on.

I do hope, though, that this Korean version will do a somewhat different take on the ending.

0

The ending was kinda sad tho.. [VERY DETAILED SPOILERS!!!]

I remember being depressed for a whole week after the ending... lol

0

I highly doubt that they would follow the chinese version too closely being an adaptation. But it would be interesting to see if she does end up married to him this time round again.

It seems as though in the Korean version, 13th prince seems to have developed romantic feelings for her (when he said 'you are aware of my feelings for you' in the teaser) instead of platonic ultimate bromance. Heaps of people loved their relationship as it was the just the most beautiful friendship, so maybe this would be different with him now too.

Oh man I was one of those who got so psyched when they didn't make the girl and 13th prince's relationship even vaguely romantic.

Sigh. It was such a good drama. The girl was so smart and adept at manipulating situations from a position of lesser power... I liked all of that so much more than the romance. Kind of sad that they may make this even more romance-focused than the original...

It's because the original novel and C-version of Scarlet Heart is set during Qing Dynasty whereas K-version brings the setting to Goryeo, in fact early establishment of Goryeo where there was still intense power struggle and therefore the 4th Prince here is a warrior not a scholar. Should they bring the setting during Joseon period, I am sure the K-version of 4th Prince will be similar to the C-version. I am glad that the set up is in Goryeo since LJK been doing so many saeguks but all set-up in Joseon and this is the first one during Goryeo period. Plus, Joseon's kings did not have enough princes unless they created fictional royal family as per Moon That Embraces The Sun.

I actually preferred him with the hats and topknots because they frame his face so beautifully, I don't want hair (even Mane of Glory hair) obscuring my view of oppa's face.

But Mane of Glory WITH blood? I could get behind that.

Not very sure about Korean History but sure if there was that much power struggle involving blood bath then I guess it makes sense. To be honest, I really liked the subtle power play in the Chinese version. Here, the warrior over scholar may be a good choice to add a bit of action and make it different but still I really liked the in control at all times and work from the shadows mostly but win at the end 4th prince version in the Chinese one.

Well LJK is playing Wang So who became a powerful king who conquered others, was bloody king to his enemies, the nobles that he has a bloody reign period but he was also given credit making law changes, changing system for slaves, commoners that changed their live even up Joseon period. Commoners would not became scholars before kings like him changed the laws.

So he was a scholar too, not just a bloody warrior.

Required fields are marked *

Oh ya...I read that Wang So who ascended the throne as Gwangjeong of Goryeo also known to be squashing his political rivals and creating an atmosphere of fear within the political realm and there were 3 periods during his reign in order for him to strengthen his power including a purge during the last years of his reign. So you see, you definitely can expect massive bloodiness as in the teaser.

0

Well said @Mohammed

As I said, I like that they shifted the setting to Goryeo era instead of the constricted Joseon period where power struggle is more subtle and all about political foreplay. If the K-version is to feature the exact same version, then there will be no fresh element to bring to the table and for the audiences to enjoy something different. It will just basically a comparing exercise between which version is better off in executing the same thing. Plus, K-version of Scarlet Heart is a "adaptation" and not a "remake". Love, political conflicts, siblings rivalry, blood and tears - all the recipe needed to elevate viewing experience to a whole new level.

SPOILER

When his character was a kid, the eunuch bought him a very hot meal and left. Young Jun-ki opened it immediately without waiting for it to cool. The meal was a piping hot Subway which popped out of its wrapper and seared Young Jun-ki's face.

Young Jun-ki, in his anger, took out his sword, stabbed the eunuch, and disposed of the body. But the sandwich has left a mark which proves Young Jun-ki as the killer. So he covered up his face to hide the Subway-shaped scar from prying eyes.

For a long time after that, the young prince has a recurring dream. In it, he is awoken by the sound of splashing water in the bath area. He is startled to see the piping hot Subway which popped out of its wrapper and seared his face broodily taking a cold shower. As the prince stares in horror, the subway slowly turns and drones, "I beeee pipingggggg hotttt I beeee takinggggg a colddddddd showerrrrrr..." There the dream ends, and the prince is jolted awake, drenched in sweat...

...only to meet face to face with the young heroine, Haesoo, who had been enticed by the Subway smell as hunger drove her to track down the source centuries away But the last thing she had expected was to encounter the young 4th prince and the other princes bathing with a Subway sandwich.

"Alas!" thought the 4th prince. "Was I not dreaming?!"

Not knowing how to deal with this predicament, Haesoo gave the 4th prince a friendly wave and slight smile, covered her eyes, and retracted several steps before spinning around and breaking into a full run. She will need to make the Subway stop another time!

pass the food name as a simple dish contain anything you need to make you full while imagining the real subway pic in her flashback memories,
then the prince can comment

I can see it now - IU is just chilling at a Subway, about to take a bite out of her freshly made sub, when all of a sudden the time shenanigans happens in an instant and what used to be the Subway joint is now the battlefield of the bloodiest war possible between the princes.

But then they all see her glorious sandwich. And they put down their swords. Now, their objective is to win the girl's heart so that they could take a bite and learn the secrets of the fresh sub. And thus begins the new era of "eating fresh". Meanwhile, IU is just mad that she can't enjoy her footlong in peace anymore.

It's not going to be an exact remake. I believe they are following the novel for the most part.

The timeline for the Chinese version and Korea's version are totally different.
Emperor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty reigned from 1661-1722
King Taejo of Goryeo - reigned from 918 -943.

I think they made the best choice with Taejo instead of Joseon's Gwanghaegun who ruled for a short time around the same timeline as the novel.

Whoa, I did not expect the teaser to be this dark. Then again, I thought this would focus more on the romance between IU and the many men this show has. Boy, never have I been so wrong.

Hopefully Ji Soo's role in this is less like his other bad guy roles. His acting is great, but I would like a little more variety in the characters he plays. Just my two cents, though.

It honestly feels like his character is closer to the personality of 10th prince instead. He doesn't seem to exude the whole dependable aura that the C-version had. But I suppose differences in character personality are bound to happen

He's supposed to be the cute maknae that everyone loves. So, I hope he will have a happy role instead of the wounded badass puppy role. He is a fighter though. And it'd be nice if he also had qualities of the C-version 14th prince in terms of how he took care of the heroine in the latter part of the show. I actually quite liked the original version's heroine in her relationships with the princes. She loved 8th, then 4th, but was good friends with 10th, BFF with 13th, and showed immense loyalty to 14th.

I wonder if we'll actually get to see her relationships with all the princes, though? Not seen BBJX but somehow I feel like Korean tv might balk at showing her actually in love with more than one guy or marrying another altogether (or tend to dismiss 8 as a 'mistake') etc.

The Chinese drama was refreshing in one aspect for me, Rouxi didn't have a one true love. She fell in love with one guy, grew apart then found somebody else but even then she had her differences. I hope K-drama isn't afraid of showing that. It was a natural progression for her while she moved from her sister's home to the palace and so on.
Also some of the interesting woman roles have been cut off it seems to give way for power hungry royal concubine story. Its cliched. Roulan, Minghui, Mingyu these were women of substance who had immense growth one way or other. I don't think we will have that in this version.

I'm wondering if they'll water down her relationships with anyone who isn't 4 tbh. And also wondering if this is going to be as strongly from her pov as the original BBJX sounds like.

0

I feel so so so sad that they cut off Minghui, because she was such a deep character. She was pretty much the embodiment of what wives were meant to be back then. Complete devotion to their husbands. It wasn't just loyalty she had though, she loved him so so much and never questioned him even when his decisions might've brought their entire family down. She always believed in him.

0

Yeah I kinda sighed when I saw that they've cut down on the number of female characters and made at least one blatantly evil. I mean, the original managed to have women who were in love with/married to the same man and they were still genuinely friendly with each other! And even Mingyu and Minghui who started off as the typical catty second leads were fleshed out so much by the end.

0

Based on the teasers so far, she does seem to be spending time with all the princes, individually and as a group. So, I think they will portray her relationship with the different princes, and of course, centralizing on 8th and 4th. To what extent will be the focus on each prince with her, I really don't know. After all, this is only 20 ep's and the DVD of the C-version is 35. I think the TV broadcasted version had more when I first watched it. I highly recommend BBJX. The production did the novel justice. I'm not sure how this adaptation will turn out because Goryeo history is not something I'm familiar with. I'm just watching because of the cast and because I loved the original. ^^

The teaser of this show just gets my heart racing....no matter how many times i see it. The Chinese one - i must have seen it a thousand times, still i have goosebumps! This one just has me on the edge of my seat. Sword, blood, powerplays.... and so much heart break. It's amazing how little glimpses which do not last for more than a second leaves most of the impact - Jun Ki and Ha Neul bit where they have swords drawn at each other, Ji soo's tiny bit with an intense emotional reaction and ofcourse IU's eyes in tears. Damn, my expectations have reached pluto. Excuse me while i stare at the last picture having a montage of all the pretty people - such poise, grace and dignity reflecting from all.

If I could summed up BBJX C-version, 8th Prince is my first love, 4th Prince is the one I admire but never eventually fall in love, 14th Prince is my last love. LOL
So I'd pick 8th/14th to marry.
But in K-ver the actors are my favorites so I can't decide which one I'll eventually choose and ship with IU.

Ideally, 14th Prince is the best husband material.

But there's always a reason why good girl has the tendency to choose bad boy and bad boy normally gets the girl. He elicit a certain kind of aura, dangerous yet you still want more. And so, I can understand why Haesoo will choose 4th Prince especially that the 4th Prince is as handsome, gorgeous beyond words, sizzling hot badass smexy that is LJK.... I am running out of words to describe him.

I honestly think if 13th and Ruoxi love each other, they'd be perfect for each other.

In K-ver however I don't think Nam Joo Hyuk could match Yuan Hong 13th Prince C-version. He's still green acting wise and still have a lot to do to improve.

I don't really blame 8th prince for not willing to give up the fight for the throne for a girl to be honest. I mean...it was his life's goal. Coveting the throne was all he really had, and it was something he wanted to prove to everyone that despite his mother's low birth status, he could make it up there. I guess it might also had something to do with the mindsets back then. Duty comes before love.

I agree on the throne,
the persistant thing is about how his relation with the 1st and 2nd wife.
He knew who loves his the most and who that can't love him but he really persistant on what he wants despite the other party's feeling.

so that's why he is too much to me, and that's why I will gladly embrace the 13th prince

Monday-Tuesday drama battle will be fierce I suppose, with KBS 'declaring war' (they release new teaser -for Moonlight Drawn by Cloud- too today not long after Moon Lovers).
I kinda nervous for Moon Lovers. It looks good so far tho, esp the cinematography which is A+. From the teaser released or posters, Moon Lovers looks more dark and heavy while Moonlight more light, and cheerful and happy. The A+ for Moonlight is, it has Park Bogum! He looks so good in the teaserXD

Ohh I don't know, I feel I like both of them?
Just... Moon Lovers, *fingers crossed* please do well! ?

Moonlight always release something on Monday around that time. Their 2nd teaser was released last Monday.

Both dramas do have different vibes. Do well, you two!

Nothing against Moonlight especially that I love Kim Yoo Jung and adore Park Bo Gum. But the storyline is kinda cliche and the teaser is not so enticing as Moon Lovers. KBS shifted the airing date to 22nd instead of 15th due to Olympic and I believe, all eyes are on Moon Lovers since it is such a big production and either people going to love it or not, I am sure many will tune in to see if it is actually worth the hype.

i think it was a stupid decision to shift dates. Before at least they would have had four episodes to reel the audience in.

Shifting the airing date may not be a good move for the Moonlight drama because its 1st 2 episodes will now have to compete with the last 2 episodes of Doctors for audience.

I am slightly intrigued by Moonlight, but I will forever be weirded out by the fact that the damn crown prince cannot tell that she's a girl. I mean...it's one thing to be a flower boy or pretty boy...but it's completely different when it's CLEARLY a girl. Drama logic I guess.

This looks so, so good, the cinematography especially is spectacular. I'm finding it so hard to reconcile this with the goofy BTS cast pictures (which is great, because they all look very in character.) Most people just had seconds worth of introduction, but they were impact-driven, I especially loved the shots of everyone with tears in their eyes. IU, in the last shot, looked absolutely breathtaking. Ah, I'm so excited for this now!! The Chinese teaser showed us a bit of the light side as well, so I'm hoping we get the regular-life bits for the next teaser. Can't wait.

Yeah, I read that somewhere as well early on when there was news on this drama. Historically, 3rd and 4th do have the same mother for these Goryeo princes.

Scarlet Heart : Action ver

I Hope it did good, I love the calm and dangerous tone in the chinese version and I hope this K version will work out the real charm.
if they follow the history, I remember there are several prince who become a king before the rebellion from the 4th prince.
So idk if I like a rebellion route since the original is like "people just know the surface"
but I still hope it to be greatly exciting.

Throne war is already intriguing without a girl from the future so let's see how it changes because of her ^^

"Lee Jun-ki declares, “I want to become emperor no matter what.” Well, you’ve got my vote."... Well I like the positive outlook of the post. It shows that maybe, an actual fan of Jun Ki might be the one handling any posts or future recaps (hint hint) to do with Jun Ki's upcoming drama. Wouldn't that be nice? Because at least the criticism would be fair...and even the fangirling will be moderate and not over the top, because of course no one likes that.

I'm just really happy that Jun Ki is working, keeping busy and looks happy for his new drama. I didn't really get to watch his last drama (yet) and I hope I can follow this one the way I followed Joseon Gunman, which was his last drama I supported fully. I'll just have to wait and see. I totally adore Jun Ki but sometimes, not the way his dramas are handled by production and directing. Hopefully the tides change this time. He deserves it and works really hard too.

I've thought a lot about this drama and everything I (hope) I have to look forward to. But something I just realized for the first time while watching that trailer is how much I think I will really like IU in this role.

She reminds me of Cecilia Liu because of her beauty and litheness and youthfulness. But most of all, IU, like Liu, is a really, really gorgeous cryer and if there is one thing you have to be to play this role, it's a beautiful cryer. IU and Liu are particularly good at the dewy-eyed pre-tear part. Yep, excellent casting.

+1 The only time I cried in The Producers was when Cindy cried the time the 2N1D cast visited her at home. That whole scene was shot like a CF and could have looked really unnatural, but her tears felt so raw that it just elevated the scene imo. And the difference in vibe is so palpable even in the crying scenes, Cindy cried like a lonely child who'd been comforted but Haesoo looks like a woman silently grieving. That last shot of her in the trailer is mesmerising.

It's what I love about how she's portraying HaeSoo in the teasers. It seems she really understands the character. HaeSoo wouldn't be one to cry out loud and instead grieve quietly and alone because of the burden she bears. The knowledge of the future isn't something she could share easily and it really drags her down.

I didn't even know that because I've never seen or read the original Scarlet Heart, so I don't know what kind of character the female lead is supposed to be, but your comment was so interesting, because that is the vibe I got from the teaser, in which case IU did an absolutely commendable job of conveying exactly that in just one or two shots! I'm really interested in knowing how her knowledge of the future affects her dynamics in the past, it sounds fascinating!

This! Plus Kim Kyu Tae said in TWTWB that he likes to use close up shots. In Producers, IU had close up, slow motion scenes and her emotions in those scenes are so palpable. I think it's her eyes/gaze? I feel like an actress can shine or fail in those types of scenes... when they're supposed to portray emotions through their eyes and make the audience feel something just from that.

If there's one thing IU does really well, it's the eye-acting. She may not be perfect, but damn if she isn't expressive - an ability I feel will stand her in really good stead when matching up to oppa.

A lot depends on the writing too, I don't think she'd survive portraying the kind of clueless dopey damsel-in-distress character that hobbled Lee Yubi during Scholar Who Walks the Night, but she's definitely the kind who'd nail a role that gives her anything to play with.

This looks more like something I could watch. The other video that could be found on Youtube didn't look impressive at all, but I can see myself liking a dark version of BBXJ. That was exactly what I wanted SK to do to the original plot. Trying to go the same route as the Chinese version would be a fail; they have to modify the story to fit what they're best at.

Anyways, looking forward to this now. Hoping it's going to be good! :)

Yep.. from the news, it's said that they will follow the original novel. So it's kind of remake from the novel not from Chinese drama. But there are still differences though I don't know how much cause its has to fit with Korean history too.

Lee Jun Ki......you got my vote too either the vote to become the emperor or the vote to win the girl (though I would very much like to keep you for myself :-P). This teaser is intense, moody, dark and mysterious. I love slaying Jun Ki with or without the eye patch. He is going to own this role, I have no doubt about it. Feeling, feeling better be true. I have such a strong feeling that this drama will be a great success and ratings hit and please catapult back my Jun Ki to top of superstardom as he is above all the most deserving.
