I also love the drama’s poster. It’s sexy, yet mysterious.

  1. Cast of Jumong:
    Song Il Kook (from “Terms of Endearment”, “Arts of Seduction”)
    Han Hye Jin (“Be Strong Geum Soon”)

    Also check out more info on the cast here.

    I highly recommend this one if you like historical drama or just fan of great story-telling in general.

  2. No I haven’t. I really want to but I can’t seem to find english subtitles for it online. =(

    Have you seen the old drama “Romance” with Kim Jae Won and Kim Ha Neul? It’s the one where KJW played a student in love with his teacher. If I remember correctly, Han Hye Jin was also in that drama. But her role wasn’t very likeable.

  3. Hi, yes I watched Romance, but guess what, I watched it on a chinese channel 😦 So I dont understand much.

    Was she there ? I havent noticed~ Thanks for the info !
