Jo Jung Suk and Yoon Shi Yoon may be working together in a new drama!

On November 22, it was reported that the two actors will be starring in upcoming SBS drama “Ugeumchi” (literal title).

Regarding the reports, Jo Jung Suk’s agency JS Company responded, “‘Ugeumchi’ is one of the projects he has been offered,” and added, “Nothing has been confirmed. He is reviewing the offers.”

Yoon Shi Yoon’s agency commented, “He is positively considering the offer.”

Jo Jung-seok, Yoon Shi-yoon offered brother roles in SBS sageuk

by tipsymocha

jojungseok-yoonshiyoon-ugeumchi.jpg

New drama alert! And this one is exciting on so many levels. PD Shin Kyung-soo, of Tree With Deep Roots and Six Flying Dragons fame, is helming a new sageuk for SBS. Joining him is another sageuk expert, writer Jung Hyun-min, who wrote the acclaimed Jung Do-jeon. Titled Ugeumchi, the sageuk takes place at the end of the 19th century and will focus on the Donghak Peasant Rebellion, which is credited (blamed?) for sparking the First Sino-Japanese War and strengthening Imperial Japan’s hold in Korea.

Ugeumchi will revolve around two half-brothers, and offers are currently out to Jo Jung-seok (Two Cops) and Yoon Shi-yoon (Your Honor) to headline as siblings on different sides of the conflict. If they accept, Jo Jung-seok will play what sounds like an antihero character, the illegitimate son of a notorious and wealthy government official in the town of Gobu. Born to a slave mother, Jo Jung-seok’s character is described as a poisonous snake, with sharp gazes and withering smiles. I’m so used to watching Jo Jung-seok playing likeable leads that I’d love to watch him play against type here.

The role offered to Yoon Shi-yoon, on the other hand, is predictably the opposite of Jo Jung-seok’s. If he accepts, he’ll play the legitimate, younger son of the Baek family, who studied abroad in Japan and is preparing for the national civil service exam. Described as noble and graceful in both his looks and the way he carries himself, his only perceived flaw is his family’s less-than-the-highest social status.

On the other hand, Yoon Shi Yoon will play the role of the younger brother Baek Yi Hyun. While he is the youngest son in the family, he is also the first “rightful son” born under the wife. With a graceful appearance and speaking manner, he shows much respect for his older brother.

It's not Ugeumti anymore, that was the previous unofficial name, now it's 녹두꽃 (lit translation: Mung bean flower)

 Thanks. I saw that there is a title change. I am sure there will be an official English title as well.

I think I read somewhere about tI guess when they accepted Vagabong on SBS, the time slot for Myung Bean Flower became uncertain. I changed the released date to not create confusion. Thanks.

Schedule for Hot Blooded Priest still seems unclear. Some think it will be on the Friday/Saturday slot. SBS will cancel the Saturday slot. I think they want to establish their Friday/Saturday slot more. :) And this drama is supposed to follow on this slot.

 

Monday/Tuesday slot is already filled with other dramas, Haechi etc.

Oh, I don't really know about HBP, it was listed as MT drama on initial reports, but it's not anymore, my mistake;   anyway it's almost sure Mung Bean Flower is going to be Friday-Saturday drama.

 

Edit: Sorry my mistake again, MBF is going to follow HBP, as Friday-Saturday drama (In case HBP it's a FS drama ofc)

 

I'm too distracted today, really.

 

Edit2: I'm going to delete my previous info and correct it, so I don't confuse more people! lol :P

 

Edit3: The scripts

It's a 금토드라마 indeed!

Some background about why the Mung (Green) Bean reference (thanks @blackberrypie).  This sounds like a serious historical drama.  It's written by a man so I think the feuding of the brothers caught up on opposing sides of the revolt will be the main emphasis.  There may or may not be any romance.  If there is, it will not have much air time. 

 

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeon_Bongjun (Green Bean General)

 

Extract:

*The Korean general Bong-Joon Juhn lead an unsuccessful uprising against corrupt rulers and invading Japanese troops in the late 19th century. His nickname was the Green Bean General. Legend says that he was a Korean version of Robin Hood; after attacking corrupt officials and seizing their treasures, he then distributed them to the poor commoners. He was very popular and many commoners joined his army. His army swept through large parts of the Korean peninsula before Korean rulers requested the Japanese army to intervene. Juhn’s army, equipped with spears and arrows, was no match against the westernized gun-wielding Japanese army, and in 1895 Juhn was captured and hanged. Korean commoners sang this song to lament General Juhn’s death and the failed coup d’état, and it is said the widows of Juhn’s army sang this song to their babies as a lullaby.

I sense that this drama will have lots of tragedies. The tragic is not only that brothers will be on the opposite sides but we`ll see how the peasant force will lose the battle in the end because of their outdated weapons. From what I read the  Korean government had difficulty in suppressing the peasant rebellion and called forces outside the country to defeat it. 

I think the romance will be bittersweet. I hope there is a little romance along with all these tragedies but it is possible that showing personal relationship in the drama (love, friendship, family ) to make the losses even more painful for the audience. 

 

Thanks for the articles.

I love this cast and production team, but I'm not sure that my heart can take the level of tragedy this drama seems to represent. Korea seems to be so much about fights pitting brother against brother. The most recent one, of course, was the Korean War from which many families still deal with being separated from other branches of the family.

 

I'm torn on this drama because I do expect it to be such a good drama without any weaknesses, but it will also not have modern sensibilities to soften the tragedy that is sure to happen when brothers follow their duties as conscience dictates and it ends up pitting them directly against each other.

 

Perhaps I should just watch the initial episodes which seem to promise some complex family dynamics and a healthy dose of bromance? I do feel as if it will be a question of WHEN I watch this, though, rather than IF I'll watch this. :)

@larus @stroppyse Yeah.  I am bracing myself for lots of tears. :tears:  There are no winners in wars/conflict.  

 

I think General Green Bean (I love his name :lol: - green/mung beans were probably the staple for peasants in their diet) was just the impetus for change.  He may have died early in the revolt but he died a martyr so his legacy propelled the peasantry to continue the fight for injustice in his absence.  And the brothers got entangled in it.

 

JJS's character (YK) is oppressed and probably has an axe to grind being the illegitimate son (same father as YSY's character - YH).  He was likely to have been deprived of the rights of a good education, status and all the luxuries afforded to the legitimate son YH.  So when the rebellion began with General Mung Bean, he would've had the means to right the injustices prevalent in his life and he would likely join the rebel forces.

 

YH on the other hand, I feel like will end up being forced into it unwittingly.  He sounds more like a conscientious objector or a pacifist.  He respects his older brother YK.  Being educated, he will likely understand the ideology and stance of the peasants but he will not like the means whereby they enact change.  Peasant rebellions often have innocent casualties because all those years of repressed anger gets released and innocent women, children and men (who were likely really decent and non-repressive people) end up caught in the crossfire.  The peasants will see ALL landowners and upper class folk as their enemies and seek to kill/destroy them regardless.  YH is likely to then be forced to protect the innocents thereby making him out to be 'on the opposing side' as a result.  That's how I read the synopsis anyway.

 

As for Han YeRi's character, she sounds quite progressive in the synopsis.  She wants to the the best 'peddler' (business woman) in the whole of Korea?  She's got lofty ideals.  She's not one to sit by and wait for Prince Charming to come by and provide for her.  She sounds like a strong woman with a mind of her own.  So if there's a romance at all, she doesn't sound like she's one to be all shy and retiring.  Being in a 'merchant' trade, her business will only thrive if the economy is humming along...she needs the 'rich people' around to grow her business?  Peasants don't have much money so they can't buy her goods?  So perhaps she will be the lynchpin that marries the 2 worlds or gives that alternative perspective to the different ideologies.
