[Details from DC]

KBS 2TV sageuk "The Kingdom Of The Winds 바람의 나라"

Original Comic: Kim Jin 김진

PD: Kang Il-soo 강일수 (Haesin / Emperor Of The Sea)


Jung Jin-ok 정진옥 (Haesin / Emperor Of The Sea)

Park Jin-woo 박진우 (Hansungbyulgok / Seoul's Sad Song)

Choi Wan-gyoo 최완규 (Jumong) {MovieWeek article doesn't mention him as one of the writers.}

Cartoon: Land of the Wind of Kim Jin

by Kim So-Young

March, 2000

It has been eight years since this work was first shown. In September of 1999, the 16th volume was released and Part 3 is in progress. (Part 1 is the story of princess Moohyul and King Yuri, Part 2 of Moohyul who became King, and Part 3 of Moohyul and Hodong, along with a princess character, who grows up and becomes a man. In the 17th volume, Hodong and Nakrang Princess Sabi may meet.)

The genre of Land of the Wind is fantasy. Its background is Korean history. Boy-meets-girl stories, history and fantasy are all shown in this work. The story unfolds, centering on the third king of Kogooryeo, "Daemooshin," who intended to expand his country beyond the Booyeo, Nakrang and Chinese Han Empire, and for his son Hodong.

The story may develop through wars with neighboring countries and in its characters' adventures. But Land of the Wind shows their sadness and agony in epic proportions, as well.

King Yuri, compared to the previous king, Dongmyoungseong of Kogooryo, lived in perpetual fear that he might not be recognized as a king and killed both of his sons when he felt threatened. King Daemooshin, pledged not to be such a man, but when he becomes king he grows to be like his father. Hodong, the son of king Daemooshin, observes his father's change to a hard, cold person. So, the main theme of this work is the growing solitude of a king who may have the world but loses love and his family, and the agony of others who see the changing king. We are moved by the harmony of the characters in this narration expressed so poetically and by the thick lines that may not easily be shown in boy-meets-girl stories.

The writer, Kim Jin, creates a new country called Kogooryeo, known only through history books, with her own imagination. Of course, this work is entirely accurate. It concentrates on the inner life of the people who lived then rather than striving for historical truth.

Land of the Wind created a sensation as an online game, and the writer Kim Jin performed characterizations in the game Genesis Jin, who debuted with A Bird to the Sea in 1983 won the Great Prize for Korea Cartoon Publishing in 1997 with The Name of the Forest deals with The Keumjeong Cave Accident during the Korean War. She is now a professor in the Social Education School of Myoungji University, and says her hope is that her readers view her works with sensitivity rather than logic.

*Booyeo: The country founded by Haemosoo who landed on a wagon drawn by five dragons sent from the heavens about 3200 years ago.

*Kogooryeo: The country founded by Joomong who was fathered by the king of Booyeo and born to the daughter of Habaek (the god of water) in Manchuria in the middle of the 1st century before Christ. Most of the current northeastern Chinese area belonged to Kogooryeo.

MBC drama "Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi / Legend" (2007) was accused of plagiarizing this comic series (known as "Barameui Nara").

Let me try to find the article again.

hmm why did he choose this drama? he is typed cast.....he should choose something different...

Perhaps..but especially today, lots of news out about who is cast in what drama and there are at least 3 press conferences going on this afternoon for 3 different drama, so if he doesn't decide and pick one drama, then the roles for the remaining drama scheduled to air in 2nd half of this year may all be taken up already.

Also Lobbyist was a break between period drama.

Typed cast? i don't think so... SIG has done different drama roles in the past, and if you're a SIG fan, i believe you already know about it.... if the project has a good script, a good director, and of course a good role for SIG(he's so good doing historical drama, what can we do?!@)LOL :lol: , for sure fans wouldn't mind him accepting this kind of role again!

He's not typecast, it's just he's currently best remembered for his Jumong role. If you look at his list of previous series, he's done WAY more modern than period dramas (this will be his fourth). It depends what he's given, anyway, the current choices for series in the 2nd half of the year may not be that full of variety.

I see 2 articles about this today, but I'm still unsure whether he has accepted the offer. I think he's still unconfirmed, maybe there will be further announcements (and statement from him). Hopefully soon.. :)



This drama's been talked about for quite some time now, I'm glad that it'll start filming soon.

hmm why did he choose this drama? he is typed cast.....he should choose something different...

He's actually the candidate of 2 dramas, the other one is non-sageuk (also based on comic books). It was reported a few days ago that he said that he hasn't decided on both of these projects yet.


Maybe he has chosen this one.....

As mentioned in the article about this comic book series, the genre is fantasy.

I can forsee Legend fans accusing this drama of copying soon. The truth is that this comic series came way before Legend. Legend was actually accused of plagiarism before its broadcast, but the verdict was that plagiarism couldn't be determined (I can't remember the exact details now).

I am not worried about him being typed cast for now. :)

I believe that many fans consider Emperor Of The Sea & Jumong his best works.

I personally don't mind seeing him in another sageuk. :) Choi Soo-jong successfully starred in many of them.
