I’m a tad concerned for upcoming MBC Mon-Tues drama Rebel: The Thief Who Stole the People. The first trailer seems overwrought while the two leads feel green for their leading role debuts. Both Yoon Kyun Sang and Chae Boo Bin have been getting plenty of second lead roles in the last two years but it’s rather a big leap to have them anchoring a 30-episode sageuk already. With that said, I liked both in their last sageuk outings, Yoon Kyun Sang in Six Flying Dragons and Chae Soo Bin as a not hateful second female lead in Moonlight Drawn by Clouds. Rounding out this cast is Kim Ji Suk as the evil King, Honey Lee as his poor beautiful concubine, and sageuk veteran Kim Sang Joong being his usual intense self whether playing a compelling good guy or supremely evil baddie. Directing is the PD of Kill Me, Heal Me with the screenwriter of King’s Daughter Soo Baek Hyang.
