New BTS Stills From the Set of SBS Sageuk Hong Chun Gi with Kim Yoo Jung, Ahn Hyo Seob, and Kwak Si Yang

We’ll have to wait until year end to assess the success of the 2021 sageuks but all eyes are now on SBS late summer premiere of Hong Chun Gi (Red Sky) with the high profile adaptation of the romance sageuk novel by the writer of Sungkyunkwan Scandal and The Moon Embraces the Sun. The latter remains the highest rated sageuk drama of the last decade and young swoony romance against the backdrop of the palace yielded a ratings hit a few years ago with Moonlight Drawn by Stars. There is the common element of Kim Yoo Jung being in both dramas, as the teen version of the female lead and later as the female lead proper like she is here in Hong Chun Gi, and I hope the drama and her male lead Ahn Hyo Seob will be worthy of her deep talents which have been wasted in her recent modern dramas. There are new BTS stills including second male lead Kwak Si Yang sharing a beverage truck sent by his Alice costar Kim Hee Sun, which is probably the best thing to come out of that drama lol.

  2. The cinematography of Hing Chun Gi seems top-notch. Also, it appears that this will be a fully pre-production, which might be a good thing as they’d have time for editing considering the scale.

    Also, both leads are offered new projects immediately after their shooting. So, good for them.

  3. Super looking forward to this drama, to Kim Yoo Jung! The storyline is already interesting and the trailer and these stills look great.

  9. Sageuk Empress Kim Yoo Jung as Hong Chun Gi is one of the best casting this 2021.
    Portraying a talented female Painter needs someone who also genuinely loves art and creative herself. She really is the best for the role. Thank God they waited for her to finish her last drama because when Ahn Hyo Seop get casted last April 2020, we, her fans literally lost hope for her to portray HCG because she just started filming BR that time. But then after they announce AHS got offered the male lead, there’s no update who will be the female lead, and October 2020, the latest update that KYJ got offered the female lead was like hitting a lottery. They literally waited for her. Thank you SBS.

  10. Yes! Let’s pray for its success. I hope those who have high expectations with this sageuk drama will not be disappointed. I am confident with the plot, casts, director but of course their success will all depend on Korean audience. I hope they will like it.
