  • Bae Yong-jun to Star in `Four Legends of the Great King`
  • [2005-04-19]
  • `Yonsama` Bae Yong-jun will star in the new epic drama `Four Legends of the Great King,` depicting the life of King Gwanggaeto. Bae will play King Gwanggaeto in his younger years, when he was nicknamed `Damdeok.` Damdeok was a historical figure who was involved in a love triangle with a servant named Sujini and King Asin of the Baekje Kingdom.

    `I am happy to have this opportunity to work with director Kim Jong-hak and scriptwriter Song Ji-na. I decided to take this role because of the reputation of the production crew, and the tantalizing plot and massive scale of this drama,` said Bae.

    The filming set and cast of the drama have yet to be finalized; the shooting will begin in October. Bae will begin the preparations for his new role as King Gwanggaeto as soon as he finishes his current movie `April Snow` in June. `This role stands out from all of my previous roles in terms of its dynamic and charismatic nature. I will do my utmost to prepare myself for this role after I finish `April Snow,`` said Bae.

    Director Kim Jong-hak said he chose Bae to play Damdeok because the actor`s gentle yet very charismatic image fits well with the personality of Damdeok as a monarch, who embraced everything around him with warmth yet at the same time displayed extraordinary charisma.
