Pretty warrior problems in new teasers and stills for Hwarang
More pretty boys (and girl!) coming your way. We’ve got couple stills of Go Ara (You’re All Surrounded) and Park Hyung-shik (High Society), along with new teasers for more of the Hwarang warriors: V of Bangtan Boys, Jo Yoon-woo (I Order You), and Do Ji-han (Basketball).
Upcoming KBS youth sageuk Hwarang takes place 1500 years ago in the Silla dynasty, during which a group of handsome and skilled warriors known as Hwarang underwent training to become protectors of the king. This is the story of how these young men evolve into fierce warriors, and as with any coming-of-age story, there will be love, heartbreak, friendship, and clashes. With all that testosterone, go figure.
In the stills, Sam Maek-jong (Park Hyung-shik) takes a breather against Aro’s (Go Ara) back, and from the look on her face, I don’t think she’s as at ease as he is. But as the faceless king who fears that death will befall him at any moment, he finds peace and comfort in Aro, a Silla-era Candy who is half commoner and half royal by birth. Uh-oh, I sense unrequited feelings already.
In Han-sung’s (V) teaser, his copy reads, “Pure Crystal. Last royal blood of the Seok Family.” As the maknae of the Hwarang crew, he’s described as the playful, mischievous, curious cat. He thinks Sun-woo (Park Seo-joon, She Was Pretty) is the coolest hwarang ever, so he follows him around like an eager little puppy, much to Sun-woo’s annoyance.
The copy for Yeo-wool’s (Jo Yoon-woo) teaser reads, “Leisurely, quick-witted, mysterious hwarang.” Because his mother is the sister of a former king, Yeo-wool has power, but he’s not interested in wielding it. As for his father, that remains a mystery, and he stuns Sung Dong-il’s character when he asks if he can call him “daddy.”
Last but not least is the teaser for the cold and privileged hwarang, Ban-ryu (Do Ji-han). His copy reads, “Double gold spoon. Prickliest of them all.” The women of the palace swoon over him, but he could care less about them. He tussles with Sun-woo (Park Seo-joon) and doesn’t seem keen on losing, and he tells Soo-ho (Min-ho, Because It’s the First Time), “The world has never changed. The strong defeat the weak, and the powerful and ardent will possess what rightfully belongs to them.”
Hwarang will premiere on December 19 on KBS.
