If there is a any fictional reason for a man to go live in a widows village in the Joseon era, the more unbelievable part is that he would pass for a woman simply by disguise. But seeing Jang Dong Yoon in upcoming KBS sageuk The Tale of Nokdu go from warrior to woman had made me believe the impossible, he’s prettier than most of the ladies in that village. But not as pretty as Kim So Hyun who glows despite her tomboyish look in the drama retains her strong sageuk charisma. She’s so comfortable with the cadence and rhythm of such a role it’s a treat to see the character shine through rather than effort. I’m stoked this drama is here and can’t wait to check out episode 1!
