Now this is what I’m talking about when I ask for an intense drama to live up to it’s visual awareness. More often than not drama productions produce posters that are merely serviceable and do nothing in service of selling an experience that viewers will want to check out. A good drama poster can be such a powerful took in and of itself, getting people talking about the design and from it the expected drama world to come. If a drama promises high intensity, then the poster should capture and convey that energy.
The official drama poster for upcoming SBS sageuk Six Flying Dragons hits the bullseye on both aspects, the black background with the red dragon embossing is a stunning contrast while placing all six dragons together emphatically asserts who the leads are and a glimpse of their character personalities – Yoo Ah In as prince Lee Bang Won, Chun Ho Jin as King Taejo, Kim Myung Min as Jung Do Jeon, Byun Yo Han as Jung Do Jeon’s bodyguard Bang Ji, Shin Se Kyung as Bang Ji’s sister Boon Yi, and Yoon Kyun Sang as the princely bodyguard Moo Hyul.
