Jo Jung Suk, Yoon Shi Yoon, And Han Ye Ri’s New SBS Historical Drama Builds Up Excitement

Mar 29, 2019
by Y. Kim

 

Upcoming SBS drama “Mung Bean Flower” (literal title) is coming soon!

 

“Mung Bean Flower” is about two brothers who have different mothers but share the same father. They get separated during a riot that is now known as the Donghak Peasant’s Movement in 1894, where religious leaders of Donghak (which translates to “Eastern Religion”) and the peasants of Jeolla Province joined forces together against the government that was pushing for the growth of Catholicism at the time.

 

Jo Jung Suk will appear as the older brother Baek Yi Kang, who was born out of wedlock as the son of his father’s wife’s slave. Yoon Shi Yoon will play the role of the younger brother Baek Yi Hyun. While he is the youngest son in the family, Baek Yi Hyun is also the first “rightful son” born under the wife. Lastly, Han Ye Ri will take the role of Song Ja In. She is the only child of Song Bong Gil, the peddler of peddlers in Jeolla Province.

 

Han Ye Ri previously shared in a separate teaser, “As you watch this drama, you will realize that the lives of the peasants are not that different from our lives. I hope that through this drama and our acting, viewers will feel the passion that these peasants felt while putting all their hearts into the Donghak Peasant’s Movement.” The video also shows glimpses of the script reading as actors display their passionate acting.

 

In the teaser video, Han Ye Ri says, “Hello, this is actor Han Ye Ri. A masterpiece drama with actors you can trust and watch, ‘Mung Bean Flower’ is set to greet everyone soon! It’s a genuine drama that warms hearts as we laugh and cry together! Don’t miss out on ‘Mung Bean Flower’ on April 26! And me! I will return as a wealthy merchant in Jeil, Jeonju! Please look forward to it! Until then, goodbye~”

Those teasers look really intense. :grimace:  I guess with the PD/writer combo it was always on the cards.

 

I think there was some talk about the English version of the drama title.  Mung Bean Flower didn't sound appropriate (not weighty enough perhaps?) - even though it is the literal translation of the Korean title.  So the title may yet change.  I think they are thinking maybe NokDu Flower (sounds classier) to remove the connotations associated with Mung Beans.  :lol:. Semantics. :huh:

Watch: Jo Jung Suk Is A Rebellious Spirit In Teaser Of Upcoming Historical Drama

Upcoming SBS drama “Mung Bean Flower” (literal title) has released its first teaser.

“Mung Bean Flower” is about two brothers who have different mothers but share the same father. They get separated during a riot that is now known as the Donghak Peasant’s Movement in 1894, where religious leaders of Donghak (which translates to “Eastern Religion”) and the peasants of Jeolla Province joined forces together against the government that was pushing for the growth of Catholicism at the time.

The teaser starts off with Jo Jung Suk’s wide eyes staring at angry flames before him. Someone declares, “I will save the world and make the people feel at ease. Look, it’s a new world!”

Then the clip focuses on Jo Jung Suk’s miserable life. He gets beaten by peasants, struggles in the air by his throat, and drowns in the water. Towards the end, he looks to the front with a determined look on his face. The words “A world of madness. It’s over now” leaves a deep impression on the viewers.

Jo Jung-seok becomes a rebel leader for SBS’s Mung Bean Flower

by tipsymocha

mungbeanflower-teaser3306.jpg

It’s a little hard to believe that this is Jo Jung-seok’s (Two Cops) first sageuk drama ever, but I’m here for it. SBS’s upcoming Mung Bean Flower has just released their first teaser, which centers on Jo Jung-seok and his involvement in the 19th century peasant rebellion that is at the heart of the show. I’m a little disappointed that we don’t see the other players in the main cast, especially since it includes the likes of Yoon Shi-yoon (Your Honor), Han Ye-ri (Switch), and Choi Moo-sung (Mr. Sunshine), but I guess we’ll just have to tide ourselves over until the show releases more teasers.

The clip itself is very short and starts right in the middle of the action: A man proclaims that “The world shall be saved, and the people shall be put at ease!” as we see torches reflected in Jo Jung-seok’s eyes, and a mass of peasants marching their way through a village. The captions read, “The torches all gather and become a sea, and the bamboo spears all gather and create a mountain.” A large number of peasants carrying banners and wielding bamboo spears gather in the middle of a field while a man offscreen marvels at the coming of a “new world.”

Though the plot description places Jo Jung-seok as a key figure of the Donghak Rebellion, despite his half-aristocratic origins, the clip shows that his character doesn’t start out on the side of the peasants. He’s shown being beaten to a pulp and strung up by his neck, surrounded by some angry looking villagers. Before the teaser ends, the captions read, “This crazy world will meet its end,” with a final shot of a grave Jo Jung-seok standing side-by-side the same peasants that attacked him.

Jo Jung Suk Stays Strong In Dire Situations For Upcoming Drama

Apr 1, 2019
by K. Lew

 

Jo Jung Suk hasn’t given up hope in his upcoming drama “Nokdu Flower.”

 

“Nokdu Flower” is about the turbulent story of two half-brothers during the Eastern Religious Peasants Movement in 1894, where Eastern religion leaders and peasants in Jeolla Province worked together to fight the growth of Catholicism.

 

Jo Jung Suk plays Baek Yi Kang, the eldest son of Baek Ga, a notorious and wealthy government official. Born after his father raped his wife’s slave, Baek Yi Kang is called “thing” rather than his name by his father. Baek Yi Kang and his half-brother Baek Yi Hyun (played by Yoon Shi Yoon) are swept up by their tumultuous lives as they experience the horrible, intense eagerness of public movement.

 

In the released photos, Jo Jung Suk is dirty and disheveled as he is forced to bow. He appears to have been roughed up, as there are scratches on his face and blood drips from the side of his head. He is also forcibly dragged somewhere, and despite his situation, he doesn’t lose the fire in his eyes.

The production staff stated, “From his first shoot, Jo Jung Suk surprised the staff by perfectly immersing in his character Baek Yi Kang. He is commonly acknowledged as a trustworthy actor because no matter the character, he makes it his own. Baek Yi Kang from our drama has also met Jo Jung Suk and done so. Please look forward to Jo Jung Suk’s strength that will shine in ‘Nokdu Flower.'”

 

“Nokdu Flower” is written by Jung Hyun Min, who wrote “Jeong Do Jeon” and “Assembly.” It will be directed by Shin Kyung Soo, who previously directed “Tree With Deep Roots” and “Six Flying Dragons.” It will premiere on April 26 at 10 p.m. KST.

SBS’s upcoming drama “Nokdu Flower” has shared new stills of Han Ye Ri!

“Nokdu Flower” is about two brothers who have different mothers but share the same father. They get separated during a riot that is now known as the Donghak Peasant’s Movement in 1894, where religious leaders of Donghak (which translates to “Eastern Religion”) and the peasants of Jeolla Province joined forces together against the government that was pushing for the growth of Catholicism at the time.

Jo Jung Suk will play the older brother Baek Yi Kang, while Yoon Shi Yoon will take on the role of the younger brother Baek Yi Hyun. Han Ye Ri will appear as Song Ja In, the only child of Song Bong Gil, the peddler of peddlers in Jeolla Province.

In the released stills, Han Ye Ri walks around a crowded market place with Kim Sang Ho (played by Choi Duk Ki) while peering at various places. Her posture and expression are full of confidence, which contrasts with her finely braided hair and elegant hanbok.

The yangban, the merchant, and the rebel leader in SBS’s Mung Bean Flower

by tipsymocha

mungbeanflower-still437.jpg

Ask and ye shall receive! Ever since SBS’s Mung Bean Flower released its first teaser featuring Jo Jung-seok (Two Cops), I’ve been eagerly waiting to see the rest of the main cast in character. Though it might not be another teaser, the show has released stills of Yoon Shi-yoon (Your Honor), Han Ye-ri (Switch), and Choi Moo-sung (Mr. Sunshine), which already have me excited for what’s in store.

Yoon Shi-yoon, in his aristocratic garb, plays the legitimate half-brother of Jo Jung-seok’s character. Their father is a notorious and wealthy government official, though his station isn’t too high on the yangban totem pole. Yoon Shi-yoon’s character is described as everything opposite to Jo Jung-seok’s: Articulate, patrician in manner, with an air of high society about him. Like his half-brother, Yoon Shi-yoon’s character will undergo a dramatic transformation thanks to the peasant rebellion he gets swept up in, which sounds a little sad, given that he starts out as a young and intelligent man who hopes to reform Joseon from within the system.

How much do I love how fierce Han Ye-ri looks in these stills? Her character is described as a “woman of steel,” which sounds about right for a woman who aspires to become the foremost guild master of all of Joseon.
