Jang Hyuk is homicide detective in Deep-Rooted Tree

Good news alert for all Jang Hyuk’s fans. He will star in period drama series after finishing Midas.
The saeguk drama tentatively titled Deep-Rooted Tree / Tree with Deep Roots is produced by Sidus HQ, Jang Hyuk’s agency.

Adapted from a book with same title from writer Lee Jung Myung, the story will be written by heavy-hitter scriptwriter, Kim Young Hyun who wrote Daejanggeum and Queen Seon Duk.

With writer Kim Young Hyun in charge, no wonder that some broadcasting companies tried to get the rights. Though MBC announced last year that they will air this drama but finally SBS succeed to take the rights for Deep-Rooted Tree.

Deep-Rooted Tree is historical thriller based on Chosun dynasty era, when the royal scholars of King was murdered just 7 days before being announced as new Korean character to public.
Jang Hyuk takes the lead role as detective Kang Chayoon who investigates homicide.

Deep-rooted Trees now on casting works , scheduled to air next September.
Although still 8 months away, this drama definitely on our watch lists, Jang Hyuk was superb in previous saeguk Chuno, we believe he will show terrific job again.

Shin Se-kyung, Jang Hyuk in new sageuk

Finally there’s movement on the SBS drama Tree With Deep Roots, an anticipated historical drama that comes from the producers of Queen Seon-deok and is based on a best-selling book. The drama was first announced a year ago, and had cast Han Seok-kyu (Into the White Night), but news was sparse till now with the additions of Shin Se-kyung (High Kick Through the Roof) and Jang Hyuk (Chuno).

Han Seok-kyu plays King Sejong the Great, who is most famous for having created hangul, the Korean alphabet. The drama will have mystery-thriller elements, as it features a suspicious murder, but will also center around language as one of its motifs. His version of the famous king is characterized by an offbeat, cute charm as well and sense of humanity.

Shin Se-kyung has been cast as So-yi, a court lady who helps King Sejong in his hangul creation project. A childhood trauma has rendered her unable to speak, but through working with the king, she gradually begins to talk.

Then there’s Jang Hyuk, returning to the sageuk fold after pretty much reinventing his career as the fierce slave hunter Dae-gil in last year’s blockbuster Chuno. Dae-gil was a nobleman turned slave hunter; this time his character Chae Yoon takes the opposite trajectory in starting out a slave who becomes a soldier.

However, while that makes Chae Yoon one of the king’s armed men, for some as-yet-undisclosed reason he considers Sejong his enemy. The tension is sure to flare when it becomes clear that So-yi is invaluable to both men, which naturally entangles the relationships further.

If the title Queen Seon-deok weren’t enough to stir interest in this new drama, consider the credits of the three main people involved: PD Jang Tae-woo had a ratings smash with War of Money, then directed the lush period drama Painter of the Wind; writer Kim Young-hyun penned mega-Hallyu hit Dae Jang Geum and sageuk Dae Jo Young before hitting it big again with Queen Seon-deok, and also has the crime series H.I.T and recent chaebol drama Royal Family to her credits; her co-writer Park Sang-yeon worked with her on H.I.T and Seon-deok, and also wrote the original novels that were adapted into movies Joint Security Area and May 18.

So…yeah, that’s a lot of experience for three people, and some impressive credits. You can see why the interest is high for Tree With Deep Roots, which is scheduled for a fall premiere. It will be 24 episodes long on SBS, airing Wednesdays and Thursdays, with its first episode airing on September 28.

Song Joong-ki cast as a young king in sageuk drama

Sungkyunkwan Scandal’s fashionista, Song Joong-ki, is returning to the sageuk fold for the anticipated historical series Tree With Deep Roots, which is the drama from the Queen Seon-deok writers about King Sejong the Great that stars Han Seok-kyu, Jang Hyuk, and Shin Se-kyung.

Song will play the young Sejong, whose older counterpart will be acted by Han Seok-kyu. The two actors look nothing alike, but no matter if they nail the acting; I’m recalling Will It Snow For Christmas, where Kim Soo-hyun and Go Soo likewise looked nowhere near the same person but managed to both get on the same page about the character’s mood and personality. Giant’s another recent drama that had a strong childhood portion, and frankly sometimes I find the youthful parts even more compelling than the grown-up ones. (When the two actors don’t match up, on the other hand, we get a jarring effect — I’m thinking Kim Bum and Song Seung-heon in East of Eden, where I just couldn’t see them as the same character.)

Too bad this also means that Song Joong-ki’s screentime will be limited. Despite that, he’s totally capable of making an impression, and producers explained casting Song for his focus and expressiveness. (He had small roles in Triple and Will It Snow, but certainly made his time count with his onscreen warmth and personality.) Plus he’s just so darn cute.

The youthful Sejong that he’ll portray is a genius growing up under the rule of a tyrannical father. He “realizes the futility of power early in life” and hides in his books, but nonetheless becomes king. In order to steer clear of turning into his father, he learns how to maintain a patient, enduring attitude and represses his own self. The fact that there’s something to repress makes me think he’ll display a more impassioned spirit at first, which he’ll work to control, and that’s a duality I’d love to see from Song, who’s mostly played warm, friendly, approachable characters. Bring on the intensity!

The drama will premiere on September 28.

Shin Se Kyung is really young.

I'm not sure if I am going to watch this. The 14 year age difference bothers me a bit. :/

Super Junior’s Ki Bum confirmed for new SBS drama

Super Junior’s Kim Ki Bum has been confirmed for the new SBS drama ‘Deep Rooted Tree‘.

SidusHQ’s producer Hwang Ki Yong, who is producing ‘Deep Rooted Tree’ stated, “Kim Ki Bum has been cast for the role of Park Peng Nyun but filming hasn’t started yet.”

‘Deep Rooted Tree’ is based off an original historical fiction novel of the same title. The novel revolves around a mysterious story and when the book was released back in 2006, it was considered to be Korea’s ‘Da Vinci’s Code‘.

Kim Young Hyun and Park Sang Yeon, who formerly wrote for ‘Daejanggeum‘ and ‘Queen Seonduk‘, will be writing for the drama. Currently, Han Suk Gyu, Jang Hyuk, Shin Se Kyung, Yoon Je Moon, and Song Joong Gi have been confirmed for the cast.

‘Deep Rooted Tree’ will be the follow-up program for ‘Protect the Boss‘, which is the follow-up program of ‘City Hunter‘. It will begin airing on September 28th.

Wow I don't know how you can say it's just "alright". The first 2 episodes of this drama were the best first 2 episodes of any historical drama I've ever seen.

I'm personally a diehard fan of Jang Hyuk, but there is superb acting everywhere in this drama from faces I haven't seen much of. The child version of Jang Hyuk and the King have suprised me the most so far. The King's outburst in episode 6 stopped my breath in it's tracks! Speaking of stopping my breath, Shin Se Kyung is gorgeous!

This drama has great acting. I love the mystery surrounding the show. If you like these kinds of dramas, you will enjoy The Princess' Man. This one is 24 episode.
