About the Show

Drama series depicts the life of Hong Gil-Dong who is the the first revolutionist and dissident activist in Joseon.

For “Traitor Hong Gil-Dong,” Yoon Gyun-Sang will play title character role Hong Gil-Dong. His character is the the first revolutionist and a dissident activist during the Joseon era. Chae Soo-Bin will play Song Ga-Ryung. She is a young widow and is saved by Hong Gil-Dong. Lee Ha-Nui will play Jang Nok-Soo. She is a royal concubine of King Yeonsangun. Kim Ji-Suk will play Lee Yoong. He is a politician and a murderer. [Asianwiki]


The drama will set the story during the reign of famous tyrant king Yeonsangun, and paint Hong Gil-dong as Joseon’s first revolutionary activist.

Yoon Kyun-sang will play Hong Gil-dong, the leader of a smuggling ring who “knows the arts, knows women, knows laughter, and knows loyalty.” He has no interest in the political world of his father, and only needs nature and his horses to be happy. Clearly things will change to make him take an interest in what’s happening to the people of his nation, for him to rise up and take a stand.

Chae Soo-bin has been cast as a young widower who was rescued by Hong Gil-dong. She grows up into a young woman filled with revenge in her heart, and she dreams of the day when she can lure the king into bed and stab him to avenge the death of her husband. For her revenge she’ll even outdo Joseon’s famous femme fatale Jang No-suk, King Yeonsangun’s consort, played by Honey Lee (Come Back, Ajusshi). Lee will play the sole confidante to a mad king who stakes her whole life on him, but she’s never forgotten her first love, Hong Gil-dong.

Also joining the cast is Kim Ji-suk (Oh Hae-young Again) as a notorious killer who believes that all people are evil by nature. He spills untold amounts of blood for the sake of strengthening the royal power, but begins to lose his way and wonders whether he actually spilled all that blood to build a kingdom, or killed because he enjoyed seeing blood spilled. Well, this guy sounds scary. [Dramabeans]

Finally Chae Soo Bin gets the lead. It such a waste of her talent when she played in Moonlight. She is the second lead but she didn't have much screen time. So I dropped it. Now, it's finally her time to shine. Yoon Kyun Sang also good in Doctor and Six Flying Dragon so it's time for him to shine as the male lead.

Does anybody know, whether Kim Sang-joon will play as Hong Gil-dong's father in this drama?

@wilis2451 thank you for posting the making of of the music video. I knew the music video itself but have never seen the making of. If I saw it correctly, then Chae Soo-bin was standing on something while hugging Yoon Kyun-sang in that scene in front of the coffee shop? - Cute.
