Watch: Jang Dong Yoon, Park Sung Hoon, And Kam Woo Sung Battle The Undead In First Teaser For “Joseon Exorcist”
SBS’s upcoming fantasy action drama “Joseon Exorcist” has released a chilling first teaser!
“Joseon Exorcist” takes place after the establishment of the Joseon dynasty and is about the undead who come back to life after being killed by the royal family. Jang Dong Yoon stars as Prince Chungnyeong, a bookish young man who is forced into battle to protect Joseon from the evil spirits. Kam Woo Sung stars as King Taejong, a cold-blooded monarch who sets out to control the evil spirits who have taken over the kingdom but secretly harbors a sense of guilt at the bloodshed he participated in to help his father establish the Joseon dynasty. Park Sung Hoon also stars as Prince Yangnyeong, who enters into a dangerous contract with the evil spirits in order to protect his loved ones.
The teaser begins with the royal family being informed of a mysterious incident that has taken place at one of the major gates of Hanyang (the Joseon name for what is now Seoul). Park Sung Hoon and his retinue arrive to find everyone dead or turned into undead spirits with black eyes that attack on sight.
Chaos erupts all over the kingdom as these undead spirits attack with uncanny speed and strength. It also appears as though the undead spirits cannot be easily killed by traditional methods such as swords. Jang Dong Yoon picks up a sword and vows to lay down his life to protect the kingdom, while other people imprison some of the spirits, including a young child, to try and find out their motives for the attacks.
“Joseon Exorcist” premieres in March 2021. Check out the teaser below!
