Watch: Jang Dong Yoon Searches For His True Identity With Kim So Hyun In Preview For “Tale Of Nok-Du”
KBS’s upcoming drama “Tale of Nok-Du” has released an intriguing new teaser!
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).
The new preview begins by giving hints about the secrets behind Jeon Nok Du’s childhood, with one man protecting a baby as another swings his sword. It then cuts to Jeon Nok Du as an adult. He’s shown as a tough warrior as he yells in a voiceover “Who are you? Why am I here?” before he walks down the street as a refined woman in a pink dress.
After entering an all-female community disguised as a woman, Jeon Nok Du encounters several mishaps. In one scene, he is cornered by several ladies as he nervously says, “Why are you acting like this towards another woman?”
Jeon Nok Du also comes to share a room with Dong Dong Joo. As she starts to undress while getting ready for bed, Jeon Nok Du sprays her with water in surprise and exclaims, “Don’t take off your clothes without saying anything!” Despite her initial prickly behavior towards him, Dong Dong Joo starts to warm up to Jeon Nok Du as he helps her with her chores.
The clip ends as secretive as it began. Jeon Nok Du uncovers a mysterious gathering in the forest. Dong Dong Joo has a sword pointed to her throat at the palace, and she asks Jeon Nok Du, “Why did you come to the community?” to which he replies, “I want to find out exactly who I am.”
