At least the half brothers are not liking the same lady based on this character chart. Yay!

Wow It is perfectly! There is no need for a love triangle. And so much drama, pain and tragedy. At least love the brothers of different women and be able to relax with their soul next to them ...

“Nokdu Flower” Writer Shares What He Thinks Of Yoon Shi Yoon, Han Ye Ri, And Jo Jung Suk

by C. Hong

The writer of upcoming SBS drama “Nokdu Flower,” Jung Hyun Min, praised lead actors Jo Jung Suk, Han Ye Ri, and Yoon Shi Yoon for being a perfect fit for their roles.

“Nokdu Flower” is about two half-brothers who get separated during a riot that is now known as the Donghak Peasant’s Movement in 1894, where religious leaders of Donghak (“Eastern Religion”) and the peasants of Jeolla Province joined forces against a government that was pushing for the growth of Catholicism.

Jung Hyun Min had previously tackled historical dramas when he wrote “Jeong Do Jeon,” a drama about the real-life historical figure of the same name who was a powerful scholar, politician, and supporter of King Taejo, the founder of the Joseon Dynasty.

“When I first heard about the casting [for ‘Nokdu Flower’], I felt like they’d read my mind,” Jung Hyun Min said. “The characters that have been in my mind for a long time have suddenly popped out into the real world. After talking with the actors, I also realized new things about each character. I really enjoyed watching my characters come to life through the actors’ performances.”

Premiere Watch: Nokdu Flower

by stroopwafel

premwatch_nokdufl-2.jpg

 

Nokdu Flower

Time slot: Friday & Saturday
Broadcaster: SBS
Genre: Sageuk
Episode count: 48 episodes (35 minute episodes)

Reasons to watch: Jo Jung-seok, Yoon Shi-yoon, and Han Ye-ri star in this sageuk that takes place during a turbulent point in Korean history. Set against the real-life 1894 Donghak Rebellion, which was a peasant uprising, the drama tells the story of two brothers who fight on opposite sides of history. Jo and Yoon are half brothers whose fates are defined–and circumscribed–by the circumstances of the births. While both are the children of a nobleman, Jo Jung-seok was born a bastard to a local peasant woman, while Yoon Shi-yoon was born to a noblewoman. When growing tensions and political instability explodes into a full-fledged armed rebellion, Jo takes up arms as a rebellion leader while his younger brother Yoon Shi-yoon’s allegiance lies with the establishment. While the brothers dream of revolution, Han Ye-ri is a local merchant and a steely pragmatist who (seems to) be unwilling to stray outside her lane. An epic story deserves an epic cast, and Nokdu Flower definitely has both.

Foresutella also presents a special stage for the drama production presentation.
The song "Bira Saha, Blue Bird Night" by Foresutella was actually called at the time of the Donghak Peasant Revolution, which was the background of the drama. It was reborn as a combination of rich orchestra and epic percussion. Foresutella added a beautiful chord to it.

Just for anyone who want to listen the OST, here's video clips of live stage performance from Forestella who sang Nokdu Flower's OST, "Bird, Bird, Blue Bird" on the Nokdu Flower's Press Con day yesterday.

Here's the recording version by FORESTELLA :

 

 

Since apparently this song was a famous Korean folk song, so if u search this song on YT, there's many versions already been sung by various singers.

 

And here's the English translation for lyrics of the song. Credit for popgasa for the translations.

Forestella – Bird, Bird, Blue Bird (새야 새야 파랑새야) Nokdu Flower OST Part 1

Bird, bird, blue bird
Don’t sit on the Nokdu field
Because if the Nokdu flower falls
The Chongpo General will cry and go

 

Bird, bird, blue bird
Don’t sit on our farm
Bird, bird, blue bird
Don’t sit on our field

 

The southern bird goes south
The northern bird goes north
Bird, bird, blue bird
Don’t sit on our field

 

Bird, bird, blue bird
Don’t sit on the Nokdu field
Bird, bird, blue bird
Don’t sit on our field

 

Bird, bird, blue bird
Because if the Nokdu flower falls
Bird, bird, blue bird
Don’t sit on our field

As expected the ratings are high. There's not much competition in the Fri/Sat slot. If the plot remains intresting its possible the ratings can be as high as Fiery Priest or even higher.

 

Congrats Nokdu flowers team for the successful premiere~

 

Yoon Shi Yoon And Jo Jung Suk’s New Drama “Nokdu Flower” Premieres To Strong Ratings

Yoon Shi Yoon And Jo Jung Suk’s New Drama “Nokdu Flower” Premieres To Strong Ratings

Apr 27, 2019
by E. Cha

SBS’s new Friday-Saturday drama “Nokdu Flower” is off to a solid start!

On April 26, “Nokdu Flower” premiered in the time slot previously occupied by SBS’s hit drama “The Fiery Priest.” Although the new historical drama was unable to match the impressive viewership ratings achieved by the finale of “The Fiery Priest,” which ended on average nationwide ratings of 18.6 percent and 22.9 percent, it still enjoyed a strong premiere.

According to Nielsen Korea, the first broadcast of “Nokdu Flower” scored average nationwide ratings of 8.6 percent during its first half and 11.5 percent during its second.

“Nokdu Flower” tells the story of two brothers who wind up on opposites of the Donghak Peasant Movement of 1894, a riot in which religious leaders of Donghak and peasants from Jeolla Province joined forces to protest the government’s push for Catholicism. The drama stars Jo Jung Suk as Baek Yi Kang, an illegitimate son born out of wedlock, and Yoon Shi Yoon as Baek Yi Hyun, his younger half-brother who was born to their father’s lawful wife.

“Nokdu Flower” Breaks Down The Complex Relationship Of Characters

Apr 27, 2019
by Y. Kim

 

SBS’s “Nokdu Flower” revealed its character relationship chart!

 

“Nokdu Flower” tells the story of two brothers who wind up on opposites of the Donghak Peasant Movement of 1894, a riot during which religious leaders of Donghak and peasants from Jeolla Province joined forces to protest the government’s push for Catholicism. In particular, the drama will show the events that occur as Jun Bong Joon (Choi Moo Sung) leads an uprising with the common citizens, and the story of Baek Yi Kang (Jo Jung Suk), who works along his side. Although Jun Bong Joon is the main figure who led the uprising according to history, the drama will focus more towards the story of Baek Yi Kang, Baek Yi Hyun (Yoon Shi Yoon), and Song Ja In (Han Ye Ri).

 

The image below is the character relationship chart. Starting from the top-left, the chart lists the high officials Hong Ga, Eok Swe, Chul Doo, Park Won Myung. The Baek family is listed below the high officials. The Baek family includes the two central figures of the plot, Baek Yi Kang and Baek Yi Hyun.

 

Baek Yi Kang is the illegitimate son born between Baek Ga (Park Hyuk Kwon) and Yoo Weol Ee (Seo Young Hee), who is the second wife of Baek Ga. Baek Yi Hyun is his younger half-brother who was born to their father’s lawful wife, Chae Jung Shil (Hwang Young Hee). Because Yoo Weol Ee is of low social class and Mrs. Chae of noble class, the two are of different social status. Though they share brotherly love, they also feel slight rivalry towards each other.

In terms of the romance in the drama, Baek Yi Kang and Song Ja In become lovers. Baek Yi Hyun has a potential to develop a relationship with Hwang Myung Shim (Park Gyu Young), who is the younger sister of Hwang Suk Joo (Choi Won Young), Baek Yi Hyun’s teacher. In the beginning, it appears to be starting as a one-sided love from Hwang Myung Shim towards Baek Yi Hyun.

 

The top-right portion of the chart shows the leaders of Donghak, including Jun Bong Joon, Kim Gye Nam, Son Hwa Joong, and Song Hee Ok. Below the leaders of Donghak, the Donghak peasants are listed, which include Beo Deul Ee (No Heng Ha), Choi Kyung Sun (Min Sung Wook), Hae Seung (Ahn Kil Kang), Kim Ga (Park Ji Hwan), Bun Gye (Byung Hun), to name a few. According to the chart, Beo Deul Ee will have a crush on Baek Yi Kang.

 

“Nokdu Flower” aired its first episode on April 26 and is a 48-episode series.
