Wow the cinematography for this drama is on point. SBS released another set of stills and character posters for their upcoming drama “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo”, and I can’t get over how scenic they are. Everything from the costumes to the background is beautiful. I hope the drama delivers a script just as powerful.
The drama is a fantasy romance, about a modern girl (IU) who’s soul accidentally time travels in to a Goryeo’s woman body, and falls in love with the Fourth Prince (Lee Joon Gi) during political unrest and an intense fight for the throne. Her poster reflects the feelings she develops, saying “If only we had not met, then there would be no reason for us to miss each other”. Well if this is not a foreshadowing of their relationship then I don’t know what is.
I am looking forward to seeing Lee and IU star opposite each other in a drama like this. I perhaps prefer him in a period drama because he does them so well. IU, who’s last drama was “Producers”, needs to step up her game to to match the intensity of the force that is Lee Joong Gi. I am patiently waiting for another preview.
