Warrior Yang Se-jong to protect his loved ones in My Country
Keep the sageuks coming! Yang Se-jong’s (Thirty But Seventeen) new drama My Country has released its first teaser, and I’m loving the glorious mane that he’s sporting for the rough-and-touble Goryeo man look.
My Country is set during turbulent times as Goryeo declines and Joseon rises. Yang Se-jong stars as a warrior, and his character poster shows him alone, facing countless enemies on the battlefield. The copy reads: “At the birth of Joseon, they were there.” In his character teaser, he draws his bow back while thinking, “I will become stronger. Because I have someone I need to protect.”
In an era where best friends can become enemies, and enemies can become allies, Yang Se-jong fights to defend justice and change the world. He is the son of Yi Seong-gye’s most trusted underling, and commander of the Northern troops. With the exceptional martial prowess inherited from his father, Yang Se-jong is able to make his way in the world, but faces challenges as he tries to protect his loved ones. (Yi Seong-gye eventually becomes Taejo, first king of Joseon.)
Woo Do-hwan (The Great Seducer), Seolhyun (Orange Marmalade), Kim Young-chul (Criminal Minds) and Jang Hyuk (Bad Papa) will be joining Yang Se-jong in this new epic sageuk, but their teasers have not been released as of yet.
Upcoming JTBC Friday-Saturday drama My Country, directed by Kim Jin-won and written by Chae Seung-dae, will begin airing this October.
