Posters for SBS’ forthcoming periodic TV series “Daebak” featuring actors Jang Keun-suk and Yeo Jin-goo were released, on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, showing the sharp contrast in their image although they play brothers.
Jang, wearing shabby, worn-out clothes and headgear gazes at the camera, while Yeo, dressed in a traditional overcoat, avoids direct eye contact.
Jang is acting a forgotten, stranded son of the King Sukjong of Joseon Dynasty who wanders across the nation while gambling. Yeo plays his younger brother, who later turns out to be the next king of the dynasty, King Yeongjo. The fictional historic drama revolves around their lives as gamblers.
“Daebak” will air in place of another periodic TV series “Six Flying Dragon,” on Mondays and Tuesdays starting March 28.
