Jang Dong Yoon And Kim So Hyun Start To Become More Than Friends In “The Tale Of Nokdu”
Ever since its premiere, “The Tale of Nokdu” has been stealing the hearts of viewers with its thrilling plot about a man named Jeon Nok Du (Jang Dong Yoon), who disguises himself as a woman to enter a mysterious all-female community with hopes to discover the truth. Once in the community, Nok Du has an encounter with a woman named Dong Dong Joo (Kim So Hyun), a gisaeng-in-training who wants to be anything but a gisaeng (female courtesan), and they become roommates.
Last week’s episodes showed Nok Du trying his best to hide his real identity while sharing a room with Dong Joo. While their first encounter was not very friendly, Dong Joo began to open her heart to Nok Du, resulting in a change in the nature of their friendship. The latest episode ended with Nok Du in danger of getting his identity revealed, adding more tension to what is already a dramatic plot.
The newly released stills show Dong Joo practicing dancing with the rest of gisaeng trainees, while Nok Du hides behind a gazebo, looking at Dong Joo rather lovingly. The last still shows Nok Du helping out Dong Joo with dancing, arousing curiosity from viewers as to what kind of change will occur between them and how it will affect Nok Du’s mission of uncovering the truth.
The production team stated, “A unique and silly romance will officially begin to blossom between Nok Du and Dong Joo. Nok Du and Dong Joo, who have hinted at a change in their relationship, plan to provide fun and thrilling excitement with their romantic synergy. Please look forward to the chemistry between Jang Dong Yoon and Kim So Hyun, who will continue to showcase their talents as the drama moves forward.”
The next episode of “The Tale of Nokdu” will air on October 7 at 10 p.m. KST.
