Couple poster for The Tale of Nokdu

So far we have had two sets of individual posters featuring our main “ladies” of The Tale of Nokdu. Ladies used loosely since one of the ladies is very much so, a man. It is kind of nice to see our two leads together in their own poster, even though this poster is pretty standard.

In the drama, Jang Dong-yoon is hiding from his family in a village filled with widowed women. He has to dress as woman to fit in. He ends up pretending to be the mother of Kim So-hyun who is training to be a gisaeng. However, she would much rather not become a gisaeng, thank you very much. She wants to do something else entirely which gives our duo a bit of camaraderie.

In the poster, Jang Dong-yoon and Kim So-hyun are both looking under a shall pleasantly at something. Holding a shall over your head, or covering your head, is something women commonly do in sageuks, so it seems as if Jang Dong-yoon is pretending to be a woman in this poster. But what are they pleasantly looking at? Could it be another love interest for Kim So-hyun? It kind of seems like it. Perhaps someone who came to the gisaeng house that she fell for? Or possibly Kang Tae-oh, a chef who is smitten with her since childhood?

Jang Dong-yoon’s character decides to stay in this village for 1 year and see what happens. Though I would think his noble family will find him much sooner than that. Their only son running away from responsibility? Oh hells no.

The Tale of Nokdu will premier September 30th. It will air Mondays and Tuesdays at 22:00 on KBS.

    Excuse me, how cute are these two together? I saw a Making-of-video and they just seemed so comfortable and adorable with each other, can’t wait to see it translated on screen.

    Oh, man these 2 just look so good together! I saw the preview clip for this drama and it looks so cute! How refreshing to have the man be “in disguise” as a lady. Can’t wait to watch!
