Uija, his dad, and other Gyebaek ahjusshis
Firstly, I had belatedly realized who the actor is – Choi Jong Hwan – remember Kim Jinsa in Jjakpae / The Duo? He’s one mean king in Gyebaek, reviving dreary ‘pae~~haaaaa’ scenes in palace sageuks with his genuine angst. And what’s more, *spoiler* he does some roof-leaping and kungfu as well! *end of spoiler*
(i’ll TRY to keep this post AS(poiler-free)AP~ *sniff*)
Here’s another cool ahjusshi~

Yeah, I think Cha In Pyo can be a 천하제일검 (‘No. 1 Sword under the Heavens’) too~ ^^; He’s Choi Jong Hwan’s general and the reason for Pirates of the Caribbean-inspired music in the Baekje period. Gosh, I hope the bg music improves for this drama. Especially for Oh Yeon Soo’s sake.

Cha In Pyo’s character Mu Jin is nothing like Hae Mo Soo (in Jumong), and is known, warts and all, by son Gyebaek since the day he was born…. hmm. Or doesn’t he? ^^
Oh, and I want to give a mention to Sataekbi’s daddy as well. Sataekbi, btw, is a character trying hard not to remind viewers that she’s Mishil. By trying to look like Ji (in Warrior Baek Dong Soo)…
Like this image of her.. Oh Yeon Soo should attempt sageuk roles for heroine fighters~ Or… *fingers crossed* does Sataekbi know martial arts?? (image : JKNews)
Oh yes, I was talking about her dad.
He’s Kim Byung Gi, and like his daddy role to So Seo No, here he’s sharing half the Mishil burden with Sataekbi~ lol (yeah there are many sageuk ghosts for me in Gyebaek ㅡㅡ;) I like how he’s so good at being sageuk-shrewdly~ Hope he lives long in this drama..
Oh, I nearly forgot about Ahn Kil Kang.. Feel he’s really strange here, literally screechy as the assassin representative for Sataekbi. His deliberate eye twitches remind me of Dok Go Jin… lol~
In a Section TV interview, he was asked, ‘What’s your secret to acting as evil characters?’ He replied, ‘To do that, you just have to do bad deeds everywhere you go.”
He adds, “But if you know the real me, I’m actually a very warm-hearted guy~” Ahn Kil Kang – WIN! \^^/(screenshots : Newsen)
A last look at the myungpum ahjusshis (‘branded, precious, older actors’) of the drama…
Lim Hyun Shik-nim is back as Yeon Moon Jin, a dae jwa pyung (some high-level official at the same level as Sataekbi’s dad) who tries his best to protect his family, influential enough to go against the Sataeks~
young Uija’s outstanding performance! (by Choi Won Hong, 11)
지금도망가면 다신 돌아가지못합니다~!
그리고 꼭돌아가야할 이유도 있습니다~!
첫째는 가엾은 어머니를 내손으로 거두어 모셔야합니다~!
둘째는 돌아가 기필코 황제가 될것입니다~!
셋째는 황제가되어 저들을 모두 제손으로 도륙할것입니다~!
I’m not going to escape~!
If I escape now, I will never be able to return again~!
And – I have reasons why I must return~!
Firstly, I must be there, to give my respects to my poor mother~!
Secondly, I must return and become the king~!
Thirdly, when I become king, I’m going to personally massacre all of them~!
How much No Young Hak has improved since Chundoongie in Jjakpae / The Duo~ ^^
