 Quotes fron the press conference – translated by Gumi

“If Daegil is the one who only lives today, Bongsam is the one who reflects on how he lived yesterday.He is the one who lives tomorrow with memories from yesterday” – Jang Hyuk

“Our filming site was not a place to create, it was a stage to present. Everybody had to come immersed in characters. – Jang Hyuk

“The synopsis I received was about 400 pages. Every actor here is the one who was willing to read such long synopsis.” – Kim Min Jung

“It’s important for the actors to quickly get into their characters. I’m not a fan of re-shooting. Our actors are ready and they are in characters, so filming moves on quickly. I’m satisfied.”- Director Kim Jong Sun

Just spend a little time with Jang Hyuk and you immediately know he is a very good person. – Kim Min Jung

“In SoGC I thought Wang So transforming would be interesting. In this drama, my character slowly grows to be responsible over 36 eps. He learns about weight he didn’t know before. I think I’d be able to show something I couldn’t as Wang So.” – Jang Hyuk

Jang Hyuk and Yoo Oh Sung are charismatic actors with manly charm even with their clothes on – Gaekju’s novel writer

“Average age at our site is about 50 yrs old. When I watch seniors’ dense acting, I feel like I’m learning step by step again.  I hope to learn the 10 years of experience and better myself.” – Jang Hyuk

Gaekju – Teasers and official posters


I absolutely LOVE the Gaekju posters. The wardrobe is spectacular for the females but also for the guys!  Even the “regular folk” outfits look on point on this drama. It gives it a very authentic feel. 

  

 And the charisma battle going on right here! I’m totally feeling Bongsam’s playful character 😀 
 

Check out the poster making BTS to see more of these beautiful outfits.
