In less than 24-hours, SBS has declared a serious intention to make a sageuk statement this year. The network has started preparing for upcoming 50-episode long sageuk Six Dragons Flying by first making waves with the casting. The first named attached to the drama is young actor Yoo Ah In, who is considering the offer to star in what may become his final drama prior to enlisting for military service. Since the drama references six dragons, there are still five more leads to cast and today dropped the second big name in the mix.
Kim Myung Min has received the offer to join the cast of Six Dragons Flying to play famed historical figure Jeong Do Jeon. Six Dragons Flying centers around the court of King Taejong (Yi Bang Won), whose father King Taejo was an early monarch of the Joseon dynasty and was assisted by political Jeong Do Jeon who is credited with creating the Joseon political framework. If Kim Myung Min accepts this drama, it will be his first sageuk in ten years since he headlined the 104 episode KBS weekend drama Immortal Admiral Yi Soon Shin back in 2005.
