Thanks for starting this thread! I am really keen on watching this since it sounds like an interesting time period. The basketball is besides the point :P. I like that the hype is low-key too.

Just read from ockoala that this show will premier in September, so soon! 

The plot sounds like "Miracle" meets "Eyes of Dawn" meets "Slam Dunk" with a splash of our favorite trope "love triangle" 
The posters look so good. Looking forward to this one :)
Edit two days later: According to Mister X, it will follow "Who Are You?" Premiers on Monday 9/23.

Teasers out for tvN’s upcoming Basketball

by javabeans | September 29, 2013 | 


Woo, teasers are out for tvN’s upcoming period-sports-action drama Basketball, which is set in the 1940s during the Japanese occupation years and includes Korea’s liberation and then separation into North and South. I was looking forward to the show based on the premise alone—a poor young man finds his future and lifeline in basketball, which propels him to that historical 1948 Olympic team—but watching the previews offers the reminder to keep an eye out for the stylish action as well, which director Kwak Jung-hwan showed off in his prior dramas like Chuno and Conspiracy in the Court.

The drama’s a few weeks from premiere, and here are two previews to introduce the world of the show, starting with the young hero (Do Ji-han) who gets discovered and is promised a bright future with his amazing talent. Jung Dong-hyun plays the hotshot player who’s already a celebrity, a contrast to the rookie hero, in a classic rivals-and-opposites setup. I do expect their relationship to eventually find some common ground since they’ll become teammates, but I’m betting there’ll be plenty of conflict to keep them at odds along the way. I like the grit in Do Ji-han’s character; from the previews, it appears there are people who want to use him and his skills for their own gain, but he is not about to let them walk all over him. Love it.
