[Orion's Daily Ramblings] "Different Dreams" Showcases Its Characters in Latest Poster

As MBC's upcoming commemorative drama, "Different Dreams", gears up for its May 4th premiere, the promotional goodies have started slowly, but surely, popping up. The latest is a stylish 4-person poster showcasing the drama's 30s visuals, but also the troubles and emotions brewing beneath the glamorous surface.

"Different Dreams" is being created as a special project for the 100-year anniversary of the forming of the Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea. Lee Yo-won ("Avengers' Social Club", "My Little Brother") plays Lee Yeong-jin, a Japanese-raised Korean surgeon and fighter for the Korean Independence Army, and Yoo Ji-tae ("Money", "Mad Dog") plays Kim Won-bong, the army's leader.

Our second leads are Lim Ju-hwan ("Bride of the Water God 2017", "Because I Love You") as Fukuda, a Japanese prosecutor at the Joseon Governor General's Office, and Nam Gyu-ri ("A History of Jealousy", "Children of Nobody") as the captivating and dignified Miki, a jazz singer at a club in Gyeongseong (former name for Seoul).

Despite their neat appearance, their expressions betray their role in the events of their time. From Yeong-jin's determined stare to Won-bong's averted eyes lost in thought as he shoulders his rifle, the true conditions of their lives are loud and clear. While I have mixed feelings about the project due to my disappointing experience with writer Jo Gyoo-won's previous works, I hope "Different Dreams" lives up to its potential.
