Watch: Jang Dong Yoon, Kim So Hyun, And Kang Tae Oh Reveal What To Look Out For In “Tale Of Nok-Du”
The cast of KBS’s “Tale of Nok-Du” shared the points to watch for in the upcoming drama!
Based on a webtoon of the same name, “Tale of Nok-Du” is a historical rom-com about a man named Jeon Nok Du (played by Jang Dong Yoon), who disguises himself as a woman to enter a mysterious all-female community. There, he meets Dong Dong Joo (played by Kim So Hyun), a girl who wants to run away from her training as a gisaeng (female courtesan).
In a newly-released clip, the three main actors were asked to describe “Tale of Nok-Du” in five Korean syllables. Jang Dong Yoon chose “lawless historical drama.” He wittily stated, “I can’t give spoilers, but if you watch the drama, you’ll understand why.” He added, “In my memory, I believe this is the first drama in which a male character spends an extended amount of time disguised as a woman in a historical setting. I think that’s a big point to look out for.”
Kim So Hyun used “sweet afternoon nap” for her description. She explained, “‘Tale of Nok-Du’ is like a pretty fairy tale. I think this drama is like a nice dream you have while taking an afternoon nap.” She also highlighted the diverse and distinct characters that seem like they jumped right out of the original webtoon as a charm of the drama.
Finally, Kang Tae Oh, who plays the secretive Cha Yul Mu, described the drama as “a universal remedy.” He elaborated, “If you feel tired or lonely, this drama will be like a medicine to make you feel better.” He further compared the individuality of each of the characters to the various colors of the beautiful hanbok worn in the drama and said that viewers can anticipate the unique chemistry between the cast.
