We finally have confirmations that Song Joong Ki (Descendants of the Sun) and Kim Ji Won (Fight for My Way) will star in the upcoming tvN historical drama Asadal. This will be a reunion for the pair who worked together in Descendants of the Sun in 2016. Jang Dong Gun (Suits) and Kim Ok Bin (Children of a Lesser God) will round out the main cast.
Asadal is the latest epic historical set in ancient times with a story that blends myth and history as a power struggle ensues during the founding of the nation of Gojoseon. It comes from the writers of Six Flying Dragons and Tree With Deep Roots and from the PD of My Ahjussi.
We’ve got quite a cast lined up with an amazing production team and writers with this one. This drama will most likely be very buzzed about as we approach next year. I’m particularly excited about the setting taking us to ancient times which offers something unique.
Asadal is planning to be pre-produced and is looking to air in early 2019.
