Why Lee Joon-gi is a wolf although he's an emperor

2016/08/22 | Permalink | Source

"Scarlet Heart: Ryeo" Lee Joon-gi turned into a wolf.

Stills of Wang So (Lee Joon-gi) from the SBS drama "Scarlet Heart: Ryeo" were released on the 23rd.

Wang So appears covered in blood from head to toe after being abandoned by the Kang family in a mountain full of wolves. He's glaring at someone with extreme anger.

Wang So is abandoned by his mother Yoo (Park Ji-young) and sent to the Kang family as hostage. He then turned into a 'wolf'.


According to the production, Wang So becomes a character who the the Koryeo people fear. He is nicknamed 'the wolf' and is said to kill anyone who has seen him without his mask.

In the stills, we can see how lonely he is. He meets his mother for the first time in 2 years but her love is only allowed to his brother, the third emperor Wang Yo (Hong Jong-hyun). Yoo is looking sharply at Wang So and his brother is laughing at his worn-out look.

The poster of "Scarlet Heart: Ryeo" symbolizes the timing where Wang So becomes a 'wolf'. He is smiling in front of a massive pile of flames and one of his eyes are glaring through his hair and mask.

"Scarlet Heart: Ryeo" Wang So is a pitiful man who had to struggle on his own to survive. Lee Joon-gi has poured everything he has into the role and made it his own. The character was only possible because it was Lee Joon-gi.

The first and second episodes of "Scarlet Heart: Ryeo" will be played back to back on August 29th at 10PM.
