Character stills for Scholar Who Walks the Night

These character stills for Scholar Who Walks the Night are pretty straightforward, but that doesn’t mean straightforward can’t be beautiful. We’ve talked about this drama so much and its premiere is only a week away, so I’ll let the stills do the talkin’.

For a refresher, the characters are:

  • Lee Jun-ki as the hero, our vampire scholar Kim Sung-yeol who once served a prince (Lee Hyun-woo) with whom he was very close. In the same tragic incident, the prince died and Sung-yeol was turned into a vampire. Also: Exhibit A for Guys Who Rock Eyeliner.
  • Lee Yubi stars as Jo Yang-sun, the bookseller girl who’s disguised as a man, who has a bright and cheerful personality. Sung-yeol meets her while out to discover the truth of that tragic case, kicking off our story.
  • Kim So-eun plays two characters, first Sung-yeol’s first love Myung-hee, and then the mysterious Hye-ryung.
  • Lee Soo-hyuk is the evil Gwi, a free spirit with a dark energy. Also a vampire. Also, has terrible hair. In fact, it’s amazing that he can look so pretty even while wearing that mop on his head.
  • Changmin plays the current-day prince, Lee Yoon, who outwardly seems like a playboy who neglects his studies. In reality, he’s got a sharp brain and an “inscrutable charisma,” which seem like code words for mystery and darkness. Question is: good guy or bad?

Scholar Who Walks the Night takes over the MBC Wednesday-Thursday slot beginning next week, July 8.

one week? one week...

you know the feel I get is... fairy tale-ish. and a little Disney perhaps. It seems even a little too pretty. But maybe that is the point. Making it a fairy tale, making it out of this world, unreal, unbelievable?

I would love it even more with a bit of wabi sabi and sharp reality added to it.

Lee Soo Hyuk's robe is gorgeous.

His hair is a bit off though. They should have just let it fall freely, rather than style it... I don't know, what is this? 90's style?

Yubi is so pretty on these stills.

I prefer Se-eun's earlier stills before Jun-ki sucked the life out of her. Would've been great if she came back as a vampire and get even with him. I'd totally root for her.

Her hairstyle is so pretty <3, even though it looks more like Chinese historical style than Korean Joseon style. The look is also kind of modern? I can totally imagine Korean girls wearing that outfit on New Year or Chuseok.

I hope she'll be wearing that hairstyle in the drama too, not just for the character stills.

I'm just comparing the actual hairstyle without the accessories. Both "promo" shots are similar. No pony tail like the usual young unmarried maiden hairstyle. I wonder if it has something to do with their carefree personalities.

Costumes are gorgeous. However, this looks like another bad move on Lee Jun ki's part. Can his reputation withstand another saeguk snoozefest. At least we don't have another girl posing as a man, I hope.

But LJK and LSH (both the androgynous type) in the same drama.

Lee Junki has been setting the bar for man-pretty for a decade now and I'm really happy that he isn't as androgynous here. He's looking so manly and gorgeous here and even rocking the guyliner. Lee Yubi looks like a manhwa heroine and I love her long hair. And Kim Soeun is gorgeous as always although they airbrushed her pics the most. And for some strange reason, Lee Soohyuk reminds me of Mufasa sans mustache. And speaking of facial hair, what on earth is that thing sitting on Changmin's face?

...which, I'll add, I find more gutsy than Lee Jun-ki's who is wearing it – beautifully of course – here (and in King and Clown etc) in historical dramas, so in a way that's part of "costume", but Lee Min-ki was just a bad-ass kid who did whatever he wanted, including wearing eyeliner.

Lee Yubi: never thought that light purple will go along with orange. The dress is so pretty and she is pretty too !

Anyway, is this gonna be Junki's first series which he won't end up with his first love? *lol*. His series used to be all about a first love all this time, hahaha..glad that it'll be different this time *got pretty bored with the first love plot*. If I were Gwi , then I'll use KSH's present character to lure Junki and made him miserable.

Lee Jun Ki is gorgeous, Lee Yu Bi is absolutely ADORABLE, Kim So Eun is so elegant looking, Lee Soo Hyuk's hair makes me giggle, and Changmin's facial hair. OH. MY. GOD.

I personally love all of the costumes. People say "fairy tale" like it's a bad thing but fairy tales/fantasy have always been my cup of tea and I love the posters... although the backdrops DO look like high school portrait backdrops.

Excited for this! Hope it's good!

I don't think so. The prince in the manhwa isn't evil. Unless they totally change his character in the drama. But in his character description and stills release for this drama he looks like a good prince that wants what is best for his people and nation. He is fighting against the evil court in the palace too as seen on the news and stills release. So I think he is on the good side.

Lee Jun Ki!!!! <3<3<3

I actually enjoyed Joseon Gunman so I feel like I'm a big enough fan of Lee Jun Ki to watch this regardless. It also helps that I'm fond of all the other actors! I'm just a little worried about Changmin...

Also Lee Soo Hyuk looks awesome, mythical, and amazing. And awesome XD

LYB in the second photo really looks like the female lead in the manhwa. Even her cross-dress photos looks like the one in the manhwa. It's as if they had draw her. Same for Junki especially with his dar eyeliner. I guess the 2 of them are really the perfect cast for the male and female lead since they look so much like the manhwa characters.

Lee Jun Ki and Kim So Eun are the prettiest. Hopefully can see their romance a bit, even they are not fated to be together. Wanna see Kim So Eun with long hair..

Lee Yu Bi is cute and adorable, as usual.

Cant wait for next week. Hope this drama will be fair to all characters, coz i can see each character has their own stories.

if you look at it as a sort of "Korean Disney" fairy tale, it makes sense. It is not as cheesy as Disney though. Let´s hope for the best. It seems to be aimed at younger audience, so it fits. Maybe we have just grown out of fairy tales, waaahhaaaahjaa

I don't want to have to jump through hoops to tell myself it's good or not aimed at me, it should just BE good. :( I really hope this is just a messily edited trailer that's spooked me, and that the drama doesn't turn out to be an actual disaster (for oppa's sake! And Yubi's too - his career will easily survive one bad drama, but her position is more precarious)

And MBC sageuks, even fantasy ones, are not exactly aimed exclusively at the young. Young people in Korea don't even watch tv on an actual tv these days.

On the bright side - I love these costumes, authentic or no. And the cast is excellent (minus Changmin) - if the drama fails, it is not going to be because the actors lacked talent. I hope this writer/PD don't fail us, but I'm really trying to keep my expectations low.

one of the reasons i love sageuk is because of the beautiful costumes. i dunno, i think whoever wear hanbok will look prettier and give more aura. and one of the prettiest hanbok i love to see was in "Jang Ok Jung". Not only the hanbok, the accssories also all are very beautiful.

Hopefully this drama can also highlight the beautiful costumes wearing by the pretty Lee Jun Ki, Kim So Eun, Lee yoo Bi and the rest. beautiful costumes is one of the attraction to sageuk, in my opinion.. beside the good storyline ofcourse.

At this point this drama could go either way for me, but if I love anything already it's the costumes! Everyone looks absolutely gorgeous!

Meanwhile with LSH's hairdo, I don't get the hate. Maybe it's just because I've seen so much worse that it doesn't look half bad to me or maybe I'm just a biased fangirl. It just reminds me of Loki's glorious mane from the Thor movies lol.

but I'm not sure that's such a compliment, considering that by his second movie as Loki, Hiddeston fans were howling for Loki to be taken to the Asgardian royal barber asap. lol.

Yay, so happy im not the one who feels he looks like Loki from Thor movie[give me a high 5!!!] It took me 7 episodes to realize LSH looks feels alike some other movie character I have seen before.I think he really fits the role as a villain vampire.
As for LJK, he always be one of my fav actor in K-drama land.I have been on hiatus on K-dramaland on a while so I will watch his prev drama Two weeks after I finished watch this one.
