Jang Dong Gun Struggles To Stay Composed In The Face Of War In “Arthdal Chronicles 2” Poster
tvN’s “Arthdal Chronicles 2” has unveiled a poster of Jang Dong Gun’s character Ta Gon!
“Arthdal Chronicles” is an epic fantasy drama about the mythical ancient land of Arth. Four years after the end of the first season, the series will be returning for its second season—entitled “Arthdal Chronicles: The Sword of Aramun”—this September.
“Arthdal Chronicles: The Sword of Aramun” is set approximately a decade after Season 1, with Lee Joon Gi and Shin Se Kyung joining the cast as older versions of the original leads. Lee Joon Gi will be taking over the dual roles of twins Eun Seom and Sa Ya (which were played by Song Joong Ki in Season 1), while Shin Se Kyung will be taking over the role of Tan Ya (originally played by Kim Ji Won).
Jang Dong Gun will be reprising his role as Ta Gon, the first King of Arthdal. In the newly released poster, Ta Gon’s expression deviates from what might be anticipated of the ruler who stands at the pinnacle of power. His gaze hints at feelings of solitude and unease. While his gaze remains sharp and directed at someone, viewers can discern an underlying sense of wavering composure. Unlike his past self who was fearless and exuded courage, Ta Gon now presents a distinctly different aura.
Additionally, the caption on the poster that reads, “One must win this war to be qualified. To be qualified as the king” also adds to the intrigue. It raises curiosity about the said qualification that Ta Gon, who already holds the highest power in Arthdal, must possess to be acknowledged as a king and who exactly makes the rule that one is only deemed qualified as a king by winning the great war.
After his relentless struggle, Ta Gon ultimately gained the highest authority, but he now has more to protect, such as his son and his people. What happened in those eight years and how has it altered him?
“Arthdal Chronicles 2” premieres on September 9 at 9:20 p.m. KST.
