The Legend

One of the Korean dramas to look forward to this summer is The Legend starring Bae Yong Joon. It's the story of Damdeok, descendant of the founder of the Goguryeo Dynasty, Jumong. The 24-episode drama distinguishes itself from its predecessors because of fantasy elements and use of a modernized Korean language.
