Woah momma is this going to be an intense ride. The first drama preview has dropped for jTBC sageuk My Country and it’s all about my heart. As in, rip it out and stomp on it for good measure with the pain to come. It’s full on torture porn levels of torment on male lead Yang Se Jong and his bestie turned enemy Woo Do Hwan doesn’t appear to have it any easier even if he looks less haggard and beaten. Female lead Seolhyun really has to step it up to meet these two men acting their guts out with the action scenes and tons of close ups of their anguished faces. This dramas looks great based on the preview and honestly is what I wanted from Arthdal Chronicles but that drama was hampered by being set a thousand years earlier with the weird fantasy Neanthals and their rack-rack-gak-gak language that was just absurdly laughable and their blue lips and weird super strength was just presently so silly. A good sageuk needs to be intense and still believable with the heightened angst and stakes and My Country so far seems to be primed to deliver.
