Another historical is quickly heading our way with the upcoming Korean drama Mung Bean Flower (or Ugeumchi) starring Yoon Shi Yoon (Your Honor), Han Ye Ri (Switch: Change the World), and Jo Jung Suk (Two Cops).
The first trailer is out and it’s intense. It gives us a look at some of the horrible things that Jo Jung Suk has to endure has well as the beginnings of the people organizing and fighting back against the government.
Mung Bean Flower is set in 1894 during the Battle of Ugeumchi which was a peasant uprising and follows the story of two brothers who end up on opposite sides: one is the legitimate son (Yoon Shi Yoon) born of the father and his wife and the other (Jo Jung Suk) is born of the father and a slave. They also get involved with a peddler (Han Ye Ri) who runs a shop.
Mung Bean Flower is scheduled to premiere April 26 on SBS.
