The Story of the First King's Four Gods 태왕사신기

Today I will introduce a 24-episode Korean drama that I am currently chasing with the entire Korea nationals! This drama is called 태왕사신기 (The Legend / The Story of the First King's Four Gods) starring 배용준 Bae Yong Jun, Lee Ji Ah, Moon So Ri, Yoon Tae Young & etc... It aired every Wednesdays & Thursday @ 21:55hrs(Korea time), on MBC channel from 10 September 2007 onwards. Yepz~ this show is taking over 커피프린스 1호점(The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince) slot.

A SPECIAL was aired on 10th Sept which consist the Making Of, Interview of cast & a short peek in the specially set-up filming set in Jeju Island. Between 11th Sept till 13th Sept, MBC specially telecasted 3 episodes continuously @ 1 episode per day. Afterwhich, they will resume back to 2 episodes per week on every Wednesdays & Thursdays; starting 19th September. The drama debuted at a very high & powerful viewership of 20.4% & has been securing the top seat of ratings charts for both Nationwide & Seoul viewers, ever since till date.

STORYLINE: This drama portrays the life of the 19th king of Goguryeo. Jumong, the founder of Goguryeo, establish Goguryeo with his Four Gods: Cheong-ryong (Blue Dragon), Baek-ho (White Tiger), Joo-jak (Phoenix), Hyeon-mu (symbolized as a turtle). The Japanese may know them as Seiryuu, Byakko, Suzaku, and Genbu. Jumong marries Soseono, who had a big part in the founding of Goguryeo. They have two sons, Onjo and Biryu. When the son of Jumong's first wife came to Goguryeo in search of his father, and is named Crown Prince, Soseono takes her sons, Onjo and Biryu, South and establishs Baekje. This is how Baekje and Goguryeo were known as "brother countries".

As time passed, the Four Gods secluded themselves from society and watched as Baekje and Goguryeo's relationship worsened (worsened more mainly because Goguryeo's king was killed in a battle between Baekje and Goguryeo).

One day, Ju-ahn, "Hyeon-mu" of the Four Gods, sees two stars sour up into the sky. Since one came from the palace in Baekje, it predicted the birth of "Su", later known as King Ah-shin. The other star came from Goguryeo, prophesizing the birth of Dam-deok, later known as Gwang Gae Toh Dae Wang.

Realizing that his new master has come to the world, Ju-ahn awaits in the vast Manchuria with a young girl, Sujini, to see which of the two will be his master. Sujini was picked up as an orphan by Ju-ahn and considers Ju-ahn as her father.

Therefore, the story is on the Four Gods looking for their master, Gwang Gae Toh Dae Wang, who was an expert in tactics, the woman he loved (Sujini), who was also loved by the coldhearted King Ah-shin.

Who was Dam-deok (Gwang Gae Toh Dae Wang)?
He was the 19th king of Goguryeo (lasted from 37 B.C. to 668 A.D.). During the time of Dam-deok, Goguryeo was the most powerful nation in East Asia (yes, even the Chinese dynasty couldn't defeat Goguryeo). At age 11, he was made the Crown Prince and became King when he was 16. In 396, he attacked Baekje (a nation Southwest of Goguryeo) and took over the northern area above the Han River. He defeated the many invasions made by the Yeon Dynasty (China) after 400 A.D. During his reign, the number of castles he took over numbered in the hundreds and villages numbered in the thousands. However, he died at an untimely age of 39.

Reafre~ indeed, the costume & the effects are all beautiful done. The feeling of this drama is kindda like Lord of The Ring + King Naresuan + Jumong. So if you like any of the 3 above(or all of the above), you should give it a try.

Lamb~ it's just 24 episodes. Very short, you should watch your Yonsama.

Sus~ in my credit links(Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi) above, the site that provides link to watch this dram.
