tvN’s new Saturday drama “Bulgasal: Immortal Souls” (Screenwriter by Kwon Sora, Jaewon Seo/Director Jang Youngwoo/Producer Studio Dragon, Showrunners) is a new Saturday drama, as long as a man who can’t kill or die is invincible and repeats reincarnation for 600 years. It is a drama about a sad but beautiful story of chasing a woman.
In the video, 600 years of long years pass as if in a moment, passing by in a panorama. Someone navigating through a snowy field covered with pure white snow, two people sitting by a river where the sunlight is breaking, a red figure standing upside down whether on the ground or the sky and the shadows of two people reflected in a lake colored with a vermilion sunset A long, changing time and space Scenes that implied a narrative of time were captured.
In addition, despite the fact that the warrior Dan-hwal (Lee Jin-wook) has been living as an invisible human being, and hiding his identity in a black outfit in a familiar modern landscape, an inaccessible force envelopes the air.
The story that is still veiled is arousing curiosity about how Dan Hwa became invincible and the story of how he has been chasing a woman for 600 years. In addition, actor Lee Jinwook’s narration, “It can neither be killed nor killed,” narrates the loneliness and loneliness of the invincibility that cannot be measured with just his voice, raising expectations for his passionate performance.
While predicting Korean-style fantasy narratives and gathering topics, even at the script reading site, where the production crew and actors met for the first time, fantasy and reality coexisted, raising expectations. Director Jang Young-woo, who co-directed ‘Mr. Sunshine’ and ‘Sweet Home’, and writer Kwon So-ra and Seo Jae-won who wrote ‘The Guest’, Lee Jin-wook (as Dan-hwal), Kwon Nara (as Sang-woon Min), and Lee Jun (as Ok Eul-tae) ), Gong Seung-yeon (as Dansol), Jeong Jin-young (as Dan-pole), Park Myung-shin (as a shaman), and Kim Woo-seok (as Nam Do-yoon), all immersed in the drama and heated up the atmosphere.
First, Jinwook Lee, who took on the role of Danhwal, who was a human 600 years ago but became invincible, introduced the character, saying, “I am living to take revenge.” His voice and eyes, which control even the breathing between lines, were enough to gauge the depth of the character’s narrative. Accordingly, we look forward to actor Lee Jinwook, who will immerse himself in the reality of the viewers by drawing the immortal immortality that has existed since ancient times on the Korean Peninsula.
Kwon Nara also caught the eye with her extraordinary passion. She played the role of Min Sang-woon, a fugitive who is chased by a fire while repeating her reincarnation, performing a three-dimensional performance that illuminates her surroundings with a confident smile even in her lonely and hard life. Kwon Nara’s new acting transformation is raising expectations to see what kind of charm Kwon Nara will create by meeting an active and active character.
Lee Jun, who played the role of Ok Eul-tae, gave a meaningful introduction, saying, “Nothing has been revealed, a mysterious person.” It foretells an unpredictable figure as a person wrapped in a veil that dominates and controls wealth and power in the play, and stimulates curiosity about what kind of key player he will become in “Bulgasal: Immortal Souls”.
Gong Seung-Yeon, who took on the role of Dan-sol, Dan-hwal’s wife 600 years ago, naturally melted in despite the long gap, revealing her solid acting skills. She was especially adept at showing her delicate emotional expression and breathing as a character with special abilities that others couldn’t understand.
In addition, Jung Jin-young, an actor who believes and sees without needing two words, is the father of Dansol and a general who has power, adding a heavyweight to the drama. Actress Park Myung-shin, who played the role of a shaman 600 years ago, also aroused interest through a line predicting the future, saying, “The immortals chase after the soul of a grudged person to the end.” It is said that Kim Woo-seok, who is gradually progressing in acting, is a high school student Nam Do-yoon who follows a single path like a puppy, adding vitality and causing a clown smile.
As such, “Bulgasal: Immortal Souls” presents a tangled story in a long time from the past to the present with the subject of a new Korean and immortal existence. From the legacy teaser video to the vivid script reading scene, as the veil is gradually removed, the unique color of “Bulgasal: Immortal Souls” is revealed, making prospective viewers more excited.
