Song Joong Ki is a Feral Warrior in First Official Drama Stills from tvN Sageuk Asadal Chronicles

It’s not quite T-minus 30 days but tvN epic fantasy-tinged sageuk Asadal Chronicles is coming soon, on June 1 to be exact. That makes it primed for the summer season viewer surge and a potential to be a ratings winner for the cable network. The first stills are out for male lead Song Joong Ki who plays a warrior and future king of the mythical legendary early Korean city-state Asadal. The drama is part Jumong and part The Legend, both of which were major hits in Korea in the mid-aughts. Song Joong Ki looks just like Song Joong Ki in curly hair, face paint, and ripped up clothes, which is par for the course on all Song Joong Ki roles. I never think he looks like the character until I see him in motion, in promo stills he always looks like he’s a grown up boy cosplaying a role such as an army captain or bad boy. But once the screen plays I’m always swept up, that’s his intensity and charisma and I think it’s going to be the same here again.

  1. Not a fan of any of the casts but this is PD Kim Won Suk’s work and I have so much trust and faith in him. I will watch for PD Kim.

  2. Hahaha never thought I’d see the light of day with SJK as a primitive Korean. I think he channeled the look from his werewolf boy character.Either way he still looks super hot and totally in character! I’m excited for the drama and hope the script is 100% locked down. Studio Dragon better have sorted their work related dispute with the production crew too. I don’t want to see any negativity leading up to May’s premiere please.
