The fantasy drama takes place in the mythical city of Arthdal and follows the stories of people who create legends and become heroes. Jang Dong Gun plays Ta Gon, an accomplished warrior and the son of a tribal leader, and Kim Ok Bin plays Tae Al Ha, the fierce and ambitious daughter of a tribal leader from a far-off land.
While most of Jang Dong Gun’s teasers so far have focused on his warrior side, the new stills show his character locked in a tender embrace with Kim Ok Bin’s character. Both characters are ambitious to expand beyond their positions in life, but appear to trust each other with their more vulnerable sides. However, although Jang Dong Gun looks smitten with Kim Ok Bin, she wears a more ambiguous expression as she holds him close.
The production staff stated, “This scene will give a clue as to the relationship between the ambitious and powerful Ta Gon and Tae Al Ha in ‘Arthdal Chronicles.’ Please look forward to the story of their love and ambition in the ancient land of ‘Arth.’”
“Arthdal Chronicles” premieres on June 1. Check out the highlight reel here!
