Park Ki-woong is autistic again



Park Ki-woong (Story of a Man) is the latest to join the cast of KBS’s drama Unbeatable Lee Pyung-kang [천하무적 이평강], which has already cast Nam Sang-mi (Gourmet), Ji Hyun-woo (My Sweet Seoul), Cha Ye-ryun (A Star’s Lover), and Seo Do-young (Friend, Our Legend).

The drama is the modern-day reimagining of the tale of the Fool On-dal and Princess Pyeong-gang, which somehow takes on the topic of golf (er?); Nam Sang-mi and Ji Hyun-woo fill the lead roles. Nam’s character is Pyeong-gang, the resourceful daughter of a golf course planner, while Ji plays On-dal, the son of a rich family. They strike up a romance despite their class differences and a lot of bickering. (I’m not sure how this is related to the original tale of On-dal and Pyeong-gang, unless it’s a reversal.)

Meanwhile, Park Ki-woong may finally be moving away from his prior image as a guy who was famous for not a whole lot (he admits to not understanding how to work on his acting until his recent noteworthy turn as an adorable autistic financial genius in Story of a Man). Previously known more for his cute and quirky appearance than anything, I’m going to guess he owes SOAM at least a little for this latest character, who is also autistic and speaks with a stutter due to a traumatic memory of losing his parents at a young age in a landslide. He finds comfort in music and rap. (Park is currently busy studying his character and practicing his rap/dance moves.) The character later falls in love with divorcee Yeon Mi-ju (bleh), but the family opposes the match because of their age difference.

Unbeatable Lee Pyeong-gang began filming on October 1 and will premiere on KBS Mondays and Tuesdays following Princess Has Returned on November 9.

hmm... the whole golf heir thing doesn't match with the drama photo... I would have assumed based on picture that this was a historical drama.
idk. But I'll probably watch it for Park Ki-woong. Just loved his character in Story of a Man.

Nam Sang-mi is the Invincible Lee Pyeong-gang


KBS’s current Monday-Tuesday show, Princess Has Returned [공주가 돌아왔다], has been pretty unremarkable (in ratings and in response) and ends on a similarly quiet note this week. On the other hand, KBS at the show to take over its slot next week with some interest — Invincible Lee Pyeong-gang [천하무적 이평강]

The drama blends together sageuk elements with the contemporary in its reimagining of the classic folktale of Princess Pyeong-gang and the Fool On-dal. The fusion drama stars Nam Sang-mi (Time of Dog and Wolf) and Ji Hyun-woo (My Sweet Seoul).



Here’s a brief description of the traditional folk story of the princess Pyeong-gang and the fool On-Dal, from Korea.net:

Princess Pyeonggang was such a crybaby in her infant years that her father, King Pyeongwon, used to tease her, saying that if she didn’t stop crying he would marry her off to Fool Ondal. Years later when she came of age, the princess quietly left the palace, searched out Fool Ondal, and married him, against her father’s wishes. [She reminded her father of his promise and told him it was dishonorable to go back on his word.] She taught Ondal to be an outstanding figure. He won a national hunting competition, a feat that earned him the position of general. Moreover, he was accepted as the king’s son-in-law for his distinguished services in wars against Silla and China’s Northern Zhou. The Ondal episode shows a measure of openness of Goguryeo society, where even a commoner can rise up to become the king’s son-in-law.



Meanwhile, KBS World has adopted the English title Taming of the Heir, although I think I’m going to stick to Pyeong-gang. The description furnished by KBS World says:

Pyeong-gang moved to Gang-won Province, far away from Seoul as a teen due to her father’s occupation. Thanks to him, a renowned golf course designer, Pyeong-gang was able to fully understand every detail of golf course planning while growing up. Her father, however, unfortunately met with an untimely death before completing his ambitious work. Frustrated, Pyeong-gang tried to support the family, but the harsh reality didn’t allow her and the rest of the family to live a comfortable life.

8 years later.

Pyeong-gang who wanted to follow in her father’s footsteps to become a golf course designer, has to come to terms with the reality. She is now the bread-winner of the family, living paycheck by paycheck. She does chores at a resort town where she meets Ondal, the owner’s eldest son.

Ondal’s charismatic father Pyeong-on demands Ondal pass the semi-pro qualification test in a month. When he fails to make it, Ondal is told that he will be removed from the inheritance list due to his incompetence. To make matters worse, Pyeong-on collapses from a sudden stroke and in the midst of misfortune rumor circulates that Ondal’s step mother and her son are going to take over the resort town. Being cornered, Ondal has no other choice but to stand on his own feet, but for Ondal who lacks competence and determination, retaking the resort is beyond his capacity.

Ondal and Pyeong-gang on bad terms with each other from the first time they met, join hands and Pyeong-gang’s journey to taming the spoiled heir finally begins!



In addition to Nam Sang-mi and Ji Hyun-woo, the drama also stars Seo Do-young (Friend, Our Legend), Cha Ye-ryun (A Star’s Lover), Kim Heung-soo (Life Special Investigation), Park Ki-woong (Story of a Man), Yeon Mi-joo (Accidental Couple), Choi Myung-gil (Hate You But Try Again), and Ahn Hye-kyung (The Naked Kitchen).

From the set of Invincible Lee Pyeong-gang


Here’s an on-set look at KBS’s Invincible Lee Pyeong-gang, which has taken up a small corner of the Monday-Tuesday prime-time lineup. While Queen Seon-deok rakes in the big numbers (although they did drop precipitously by over 10% after the exit of one big character who shall remain nameless for spoiler purposes), and while Angel’s Temptation is encountering smooth sailing as it goes uncontested in the previous hour, Pyeong-gang is quietly doing its thing. It is generally recognized for its cheery narrative even if it’s not commanding the big numbers.

These golf course shots were filmed last week in Gangwon Province, where the drama is set. (The eastern province is a short distance away from Seoul, and the characters speak with a thick Saturi accent.
