Jang Hyuk’s new Sageuk: “My Country” (나의 나라)


My_Country-p01

It’s been a long while since we’ve posted, and since Jang Hyuk’s starred in a drama! We’ve all missed him, and hopefully he’d gotten a well-deserved break after starring back-to-back in “Money Flower,” “Wok of Love,” and “Bad Papa.” Not to mention cameos here and there and a role in the Crime film, “Ordinary Person.”

Jang Hyuk gives off Lee Daegil “Chuno” vibes here. Fans are thrilled he grew out his hair.

Jang Hyuk again takes on the mighty role of Joseon’s third King, Lee (Yi) Bang Won (The future King Taejong). He played the King in the 2015 film, “Empire of Lust.”

Jang Hyuk’s not the lead in “My Country” (JTBC Network) (To many fans’ disappointment) but he is listed as a Main role. Since it’s a multi-episode drama, it’ll be exciting to watch how he develops King Taejong’s personality with the distinct nuances he always brings to his performances.

Whatever happens, King Taejong’s presence will be influential to the story.

The drama’s main plot revolves around young best friends in a tumultuous time period – the fall of the Goryeo era into the early years of the long-standing Joseon era.

Seo Hwi (Yang Se-Jong) is a righteous warrior, the son of a powerful commander who goes through grievous trials. Nam Sun-Ho (Woo Do-Hwan) is an intelligent young man born from the lower class. His dream of joining the military is crushed when his father gets embroiled in corruption and his poor background becomes an obstacle. The best friends have misunderstandings and develop clashing opinions, leading them to become enemies.

This wouldn’t be a proper Kdrama without a love-triangle or a romantic entanglement. Enter the beautiful Seol Hyun (Han Hee-Jae). She’s described as a skilled martial artist and resourceful, intelligent woman ahead of her time who possibly holds classified information.

Lee Bang Won was crowned King in Joseon’s 8th year. The political upheavals that got him to the throne could put the ex-best friends at greater odds while fighting for freedom and country.

These are just speculations, we’ll all have to watch and learn together!

“My Country” began filming back in March, 2019. Pre-produced dramas are on the rise. This system allows for better and compelling stories and acting, as the writers, cast, and crew don’t fall prey to the whims of Producers and fickle audiences necessitating last-minute plot changes. Just from the trailers, we can expect high production values and beautiful cinematography.

Having the talented Jang Hyuk in a major role will surely elevate what promises to be an exciting historical drama of friendships, enmity, love, and war as Korea pushes through the birth pangs of a new, astounding era in their legendary history.

“My Country” (나의 나라) premieres Friday, October 4th, 2019.

***Note to Fans – “My Country” is a Netflix Exclusive that will launch globally on that date.  They are the only streaming site with Korean Language content to air it. For those of us without Netflix, hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to watch it elsewhere.

Ok but, more on Money Flower later. Right now I want to remind you guys, that December 20th is approaching. Aha! and what’s on Dec 20th? you may ask…Well, December 20th is the day our beautiful mother in law (Jang Hyuk’s mom) gave birth to that gorgeous man. YES! so it’s an important date for us Hyukie fans.

And as it is tradition, every year DC Jang Hyuk Gallery fans (of which our dear Gumi is a member) have these amazing, very elaborate, hand made clay dolls especially made for him. As you can see from Hyuk’s expression in the picture below, he LOVES these presents. He really values them as they represent his fan’s appreciation for the characters he creates with so much passion and dedication.

As you know, fan support events and gifts, always depend on fans collaboration and it’s always a struggle. This year is no exception and the DC Jang Hyuk Gallery team needs as much help as possible to make them happen. Would you be interested in helping? Any contribution will be deeply appreciated. The decision to make the dolls this year will be made on Monday (Korea time, therefore tomorrow in US time) and it will depend on how many contributions we can collect.
