Dong Yi’s official posters

Speaking of new Monday-Tuesday dramas, here’s a look at another: MBC’s Dong Yi comes out the same day as SBS’s Oh! My Lady, albeit an hour later in the regular prime-time slot. These new posters feature Dong Yi‘s lead actress in the title role, Han Hyo-joo. In reference to her character’s initial status as a water maid in the palace, the main poster above shows Han standing on water.

In the second poster below, the rest of the main cast is pictured, including King Suk-jong (Ji Jin-hee), the ambitious concubine Lady Jang (Lee So-yeon), Dong-yi’s devoted Chun-soo (Bae Soo-bin), police officer Seo Yong-ki (Jung Jin-young), and the queen (Park Ha-sun).

My personal favorite is the third poster, which shows the progression of Dong-yi’s character in the two images of Han Hyo-joo. At left, she is a simple servant girl, and she later becomes a royal consort and mother to a king.

Dong Yi premieres next week, on March 15, in Pasta‘s slot on MBC.

Han Hyo-Joo is a beauty. Isn't the Jewel in the palace guy a little too old for her?

Wanted to add that she has the most beautiful mouth among all Korean actors. Amazing upper lip and the way the corners curl up. Doesn't look fake at all.

Ooh, looks interesting. I like how in the second picture with HHJ as a servant girl, she looks bright and happy. But in the right image, her expression is completely opposite. I like how they did the two expressions next to each other :D

@Sonam: Nah, maybe if this was a modern time period drama. Since this is a sageuk-type drama and JJH is a king, age wouldn't really matter.

There's a slew of dramas coming out in the next few weeks. I'm happy, but I'm also sad because it means all the old ones will be ending.

Love the posters, thanks for sharing! =]

I haven't actually watched any dramas in a long while, but there are a few that I'm actually excited to see. That Cinderella one with MGY for one, Personal Taste for another, and then this one. I find myself liking LBH dramas, even though Yi San did drag more that DJG did but it was still watchable.

I wonder who are going to play the supporting roles. I love finding people who've been in LBH's other dramas and see how different they are in each role.

Hope he gets Han Hyo-joo this time. Too bad Lee Seung-gi got her in "Brilliant Legacy" :)

No chance, I'm afraid! The whole story is about Dong Yi (HHJ)'s transformation from water maid in the palace to the King's concubine. Bae Soo Bin plays her protective older brother figure.

As much as I love these two actors, I'm not sure if I'm ready for the kind of commitment Dong-Yi is asking. I'm still reeling from the 62-ep run of QSD.

Ahhh BSB won't get her again I presume. He's the second lead guy, right? Poor him.

HHJ is beautiful, as always.

Oh dear. I see myself being sucked right down the saguek drain yet again. 50 episodes, eh? Well, I can wait until it's on locally anyway. At least this one I can suck in the rest of the family for massive MBC America watching.

hopefully Han Hyo Joo can pull off this one even though it's like too early for her to have a title role, in sageuk at that.

The man is gorgeous, and I actually prefer him in sageuk since I fell for him since Dae Jang Geum....*sigh *another drama will be postponed since I have to watch MINE :P

As for the age difference between Ji Jinhee and HHJ, Ji Jinhee is only a bit older now than the real King Sukchong was (33) when he had his son by Choi sukbin (HHJ's character). She was most likely very young. No older than in her mid 20s I'd presume. So let's not impose modern attitudes re: age differences anachronistically onto the past.

Hope HHJ can deliver bcos in Iljimae she was very stiff and her acting not an eye catching. In BL, the second female overshadowed her.

It is good she choose this drama, it will give her more exposure bcos it is totally about her character hence more screen time.. and from the trailer, can't judge her acting, so just wait and see.

I can't wait for Angel of Shining Waltz. Or was it Brilliant Spring of Temptation?

POOR BAE SOO BIN!!! :( :( :(

And good luck to Han Hyo Joo. I have a big, big weakness for this director (yes, yes, I know he makes Vacation Trip Sageuks, but I love his narrative style, if not always his narrative choices.)

YAY!!!

Love the 1st poster's message...
(something like)
"Dong-yi, cheonmin status...Lady Choi, the Pure Concubine, mother of a King."

Now I'm determined to request to JB for recapping the 1st 2 eps... :D Good luck to me!!

@17...thanks for the links...

My personal favorite is the first pic shown above. I like the "standing on water" concept. It's so symbolic! Anyway, I'll be looking forward to watching this drama. Although, I hated (re: past tense) Han Hyo Joo in Iljimae (well, basically because of that "first kiss under the plum blossom" scene with Lee Jun Ki, hehe), I still think that she'll do well in this drama. : )

Solid casts , hopefully we are going to have interesting plots ? script , smart
directing . I 'm tired of Jejoongwon drama due to poor plots and poor script .
Hard to find good historical dramas as Jewel in the palace , Immortal
Admiral Yi , Damo , Jumong , I 'm watching Chuno , so far so good , good
acting , directing . interesting plots / script .
Another drama might be good is road number one with my favorite actor SJS .

Leave it to MBC to do sageuk. SBS hasn't done a saegeuk that interest me.

Thanks for the posters :). They are quite lovely and I am looking forward to it.

These posters are gorgeous! I've been looking for another lengthy sageuk to fall into and this will probably be it.

However, the premise does irk me a little bit. A watermaid becomes a royal concubine and gives birth to a King. So... does she do anything? Besides lay on her back?

39, you could say that Yi San had an identical premise with Song-yeon going from damo to concubine, but she did all kinds of things.

I only wonder if there will be anything to distinguish this from Yi San, because they are awfully similiar and have the same director and writer. And Lee Ip-sae is unlikely to be in the cast. Bah.

Actually, Choi sukbin did important thing against lady Chang. (aka Chang Heebin). Although, she was known as the poor and good servant to bring back the expelled queen and did her best to serve her, but after the queen died, Choi sukbin tried to do all to reveal Lady Chang's evil doings and drive her to death, which is very much political things.
