With Arthdal Chronicles finished, there’s only two sageuks left for 2019 and only one that is more similar in sweeping scope. jTBC has been nicely promoting My Country with stylish posters and character teasers, and through it all male lead Yang Se Jong always looks totally wrecked like a hero strung through a ringer. Second male lead Woo Do Hwan looks more regal like a noble warrior scholar but of course he’s gonna turn into the baddie who crosses swords with former bestie Yang Se Jong. Caught in the middle is Seolhyun brimming with national dreams and political hopes, not to mention she’s so gorgeous in her sageuk garb the two guys probably fell for her on sight. These latest set of character stills for the three leads are just so easy on the eyes, I’m relieved to have a sageuk deliver on the pretty along with the intensity.
