Kim So Hyun Is Caught In Love Triangle Between Jang Dong Yoon And Kang Tae Oh In New Rom-Com “The Tale Of Nokdu”
KBS 2TV’s upcoming drama “The Tale of Nokdu” has unveiled an intriguing glimpse of the love triangle between its three leads!
Based on the webtoon of the same name, “The Tale of Nokdu” is a historical romantic comedy about a man named Jeon Nok Du (played by Jang Dong Yoon), who ends up disguising himself as a woman in order to enter a mysterious all-female community. There, he meets Dong Dong Joo (played by Kim So Hyun), a gisaeng-in-training who wants to be anything but a gisaeng (female courtesan).
On September 27, the drama hinted at its core love triangle by releasing stills of a tense moment between Jeon Nok Du, Dong Dong Joo, and Cha Yul Mu (played by Kang Tae Oh). Jeon Nok Du, who becomes something resembling Dong Dong Joo’s adoptive mother during his time in disguise, holds out a hand and waits expectantly for Dong Dong Joo to take it.
However, as strong as her bond is with Jeon Nok Du, Dong Dong Joo also shares a deep connection with Cha Yul Mu, a talented cook whom she has known since childhood. Cha Yul Mu smiles brightly at Dong Dong Joo as he similarly offers her his hand, putting the character in a difficult position as she stares up at the two men with a look of confusion.
The producers of “The Tale of Nokdu” remarked, “The love triangle between Nok Du, Dong Joo, and Yul Mu is as remarkable as the three characters themselves. The secret of Nok Du, who is both a man in disguise as a woman and Dong Joo’s ‘adoptive mother’ will affect the relationships between the three characters in unpredictable ways.”
They added, “Please look forward to our clever and refreshing Joseon-era romantic comedy, which will be perfected by the heart-fluttering chemistry between our young actors.”
“The Tale of Nokdu” premieres on September 30 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available with English subtitles on Viki.
