Character descriptions

Charascters

Jang Youngsil (cast: Song Il Kook)

One of the greatest scientists of Joseon Dynasty.

Thanks to King Sejong the Great’s excellent leadership, the Joseon Dynasty was able to become the world’s greatest country of Science and Technology. Born as a servant, he was a self-made man, but he was removed from the palace because he did not make the king’s palanquin properly. After that, there are no records of him.

He invented many superior clocks such as Clepsydra as well as several astronomical instruments.

 


Charascters

Sejong (cast: Kim Sang Kyung)

I Do(1397~1450)

A wise and benevolent ruler of Joseon Dynasty. He selected talented people like Jang Youngsil, made astronomical observations, and strengthened many policies.

Despite constant conflicts against his courtiers, Sejong improved Joseon as he pursued tolerance instead of slaughter.

 

Charascters

Taejong (cast: Kim Young Chul)

Lee Bang Won(1367~1422)

Although he created a strong central government and an absolute monarchy, without his work, the foundation of Joseon Dynasty would not have been established. His governance philosophy was different from his son, Sejong, yet he exerted every effort on making his son a great king.

 

 

Charascters

Princess So Hyun (cast: Park Sun Young)

Daughter of Taejong, Sejong’s older sister

Even though she lost her husband at an early age, she still made a living. Then she met Jang Youngsil who is her child day friend. She was kind enough to support Jang Youngsil, and later she happened to care for him. However, her affection landed him in difficulties.

Song Il Gook Confirmed for New Historical KBS Drama

Actor Song Il Gook has finally been confirmed to star in the drama that he has been attached to for some time now, KBS’ upcoming historical drama “Jang Young Sil” (working title), after much speculation and anxiety because of the possibility of him dropping “Superman Returns.”

Song Il Gook and his beloved triplets are currently appearing on “Superman Returns,” and the concern has been that they would have to drop out if Song Il Gook decides to do the drama because of scheduling conflicts. But rest assured, fellow fans. The Song family plans to stay, according to reports.

Jang Young Sil is expected to start airing on KBS in January 2016 and will run for 24 episodes. Song Il Gook will take on the titular role of Jang Young Sil who was a scientist and astronomer during the Joseon Dynasty.

A few information about the real historical figure, Jang Yeong Sil.

Jang Yeong-sil: Inventor of the Striking Clepsydra during the Reign of King Sejong in Joseon

by Nam Moon-hyon

Jang Yeong-sil was the Chief Royal Engineer in charge of the engineering and construction project for re-equipping the Royal Observatory during the reign of King Sejong (世宗 r. 1432-1438). Jang devoted himself to making five kinds of astronomical instruments and ten timekeepers. In this paper the life and contributions of Jang are introduced along with his major invention: the striking clepsydra. This paper also discusses how the clepsydras were handed down and utilized by Jang’s successors in the making of astronomical clocks in Joseon. Not only did Jang assimilate the techniques of his Korean, Chinese and Islamic predecessors, but he also was a creative and innovative engineer. Jang is in some ways the most articulate among those in a long tradition of “automation” in Asian science and technology, where automation is a matter of submission to the laws of nature rather than the means of controlling nature, as seen in our time. This paper positions Jang’s work as a catalyst for new directions in automation and robotic arts. He was one of those mechanical geniuses who contributed to the advancement of pre-modern science and technology.

Never saw her in anything but I think they will be good together onscreen. I read that they acted together in a drama before. So it is a reunion.

@larus" Thanks Chingu for starting this thread.

Reading the synopsis makes it sounds interested for me to give it a try which I haven't seen a Joseon drama yet.

I liked Song ll Gook when he played in Kingdom in the Wind and Terms of Edearment, as to where he's a great actor and glad he's back on center stage, So I'll definitely look forward to seeing this drama when it airs.

On to the drama at hand I'm Song II Kook biggest fan love him with his boys and has been looking forward to this drama even though I don't think we would see much action out of him in this drama he would be playing more of and intellectual character which I don't mind I just hope he gives us a good performance since he's been spending the majority of his time playing houseman..  On to PSY I think SOSP was the only drama I've seen her in never really paid to much attention to her I guess I got to take notes on her in this drama also but I'm so looking forward to this Saguek..

I'm going to have to look up what other drama or movie they played in together.. SIK and LJK  are my two leading men for Saguek and would love to see them in a Saguek together

@valsava"  I believe there was an malfunction in the Wardrobes Dept lmao, because HW pants was high waters as we used to called it back in the day lol.

I hope PSY does well in this drama so my pressure can stay normal, and like you said she drove our butts to the edge of a building ready to leap off it in a single bound lol.

Edit: @irilight" Done, filled out the form.

Thanks @larus for starting this thread....hello everyone! Nice to see my dear friends.....@irilight and @valsava in this thread - an nyeong chingu!

Whoa....this thread is moving very fast.  Great to know there are so many fans of Song Il-gook and Park Sun-young.  Both actors acted in KBS dramas, Royal Story-Jang Hui-bin and Crime Squad. I remember her from MBC drama, "Truth/Honesty" - PSY played the evil role character in that drama  with Choi Ji-woo and Ryu Si-won.  That was so long ago and I really miss watching old K-dramas that was produced in year 2000 or so.

Can't wait to watch this epic sageuk drama - SIK is most famous for his charismatic acting in Joseon era.

Hi,@felicia-soh,  Glad you can make it how are you.. The drama truth and honesty that PSY played in wasn't that the drama were she almost killed two people and blamed it on the other girl..?
