Yoon Kyun-sang’s sorrowful tears in Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People teaser

The first teaser for MBC’s anticipated sageuk Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People, starring Yoon Kyun-sang (Doctors), has been released. Written by Hwang Jin-young (King’s Daughter Soo Baek-hyang) and directed by Kim Jin-man (Kill Me, Heal Me), this upcoming drama retells the legend of the righteous thief Hong Gil-dong as a hero who fought against injustices and helped the people rise above oppression.

 

 

During the bloodiest time of the Joseon dynasty, a boy named Hong Gil-dong is born the illegitimate son of a slave. A slight twist on the original tale, the father, played by Kim Sang-joong (Jingbirok, Bad Guys), is shown as the slave instead of the mother. Not wanting to confer his lowly status onto his son, he does everything he can to elevate his social class.

Spoiler

 

The thirty-second teaser gives us a glimpse of Hong Gil-dong’s difficult childhood and his father who warns him of the unfair discrimination against baseborn people. Then in a short scene, the father holds the crying boy down while wielding a wooden bat, as if to strike him, while he says “never tell anyone this secret.” (Do they exchange identities for ones of noble birth?)

Despite Hong Gil-dong’s humble origins, or perhaps because of them, he becomes a champion of the people. The despotic tyrant-king Yeonsangun, played by Kim Ji-suk (Oh Hae-young Again), is featured in the teaser with a crazed glint in his eye as he laughs. A short clip is shown of Honey Lee (Come Back Ajusshi), dancing in an outside courtyard; she plays the femme fatale and Hong Gil-dong’s first love who goes from being a gisaeng to the king’s concubine. In addition, Chae Soo-bin (Moonlight Drawn By Clouds), who plays the petite but courageous widow who becomes the hero’s final love, stands and smiles in the sunlight for the teaser. In the last voiceover, someone asks Hong Gil-dong if they’re done now, but he replies: “No, this is only the beginning.”

The first episode of MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People airs on January 30.

Does anybody know where I can watch this drama legally with English subtitles when I live in Europe? I know that dramafever has a license, but dramafever isn't available in my country. I usually use viki. But viki doesn't have a license and doesn't advertise the drama properly. And the channel is still under the old title of the drama which makes it difficult to send a request for the drama license.

I think sending a request to viki is the best option, using the title of the drama plus the title in Korean. I'm crossing my fingers because I prefer their subs over dramafever's and viu's
