Watch: Kim Yoo Jung And Ahn Hyo Seop Experience A Love With Hidden Dangers And Secrets In “Lovers Of The Red Sky” Highlight Clip
“Lovers of the Red Sky” has shared an intriguing new highlight video!
Based on the novel of the same name, SBS’s “Lovers of the Red Sky” is a historical fantasy romance drama set in the Joseon era. Kim Yoo Jung will star as Hong Chun Gi, the Joseon dynasty’s only female painter, who was born blind but miraculously regains vision. Ahn Hyo Seop will star as blind astrologer Ha Ram, who is able to read the stars despite losing his sight, and Gong Myung will star as the romantic and lonely Prince Yangmyung.
The clip begins with Ha Ram innocently asking Hong Chun Gi for her name. Unable to get the words out, she shyly responds, “Hong…Hong…Hong…” He misinterprets her response and asks, “Your name is Hong Hong Hong?” before she quickly corrects him, “It’s Hong Chun Gi!”
Later, Hong Chun Gi is immersed in her work as those around her admire her talent and status as the kingdom’s only female painter. Choi Won Ho (Kim Kwang Kyu) comments, “A tiny child came asking for drawing lessons after opening her eyes, but she was so breathtakingly good at drawing.”
Regarding Ha Ram, someone asks, “They say he’s the one who carried out the rain ritual from 19 years ago. Is the rumor that he lost his sight in the ritual true?”
Thrown into an unexpected situation, Hong Chun Gi frantically dives into Ha Ram’s palanquin and pleads with him to let it slide. She then notices his eyes and comments, “Your eyes are really pretty.” He responds, “People look at my eyes and call me a sea monster.”
Hong Chun Gi’s incredible painting finds its way to Prince Yangmyung, who can’t believe her version is a copy. He goes on a hunt to learn more about the artist and confidently introduces himself to Hong Chun Gi as Prince Yangmyung. Instead of being flustered and impressed, Hong Chun Gi thinks he’s joking and replies with a big laugh, “If you’re Prince Yangmyung, I’m his wife!”
In order to get closer to Hong Chun Gi, Prince Yangmyung enlists the help of Ha Ram. However, Ha Ram has no intention of doing so, and he tells him, “I apologize, Prince. Her promise with me came first.”
Prince Joohyang (Kwak Si Yang) is introduced as someone who craves the position of power he cannot have as he insists, “I must become King.”
When various night guards are found dead, it is noticed that their corpses strangely have no spirits, and someone comments, “This is definitely the trace of the devil.” As a solution, someone claims in voice-over that they must find a painter who can restore the King’s portrait. The voice continues, “A painter who can infuse the drawing with spirit and seal off the devil’s energy.”
At the end, Hong Chun Gi comments, “Ha Ram has a secret. Something that others can never know.”
Through all of these developments, the relationship between Hong Chun Gi and Ha Ram still manages to blossom. Ha Ram emotionally tells Hong Chun Gi, “I can’t keep you by my side right now. Because if I’m by your side, I start wanting to become Ha Ram of the past.” She later tells him, “I’ll remember this moment for a very long time.” He responds, “Please wait for the tomorrow that I’ve promised.”
