The plot of Tangeum

'Tangeum' is a mystery romance drama based on the novel of the same name about Jae Yi, the daughter born between danju Shim Yeol Guk and a surrogate mother, and Hong Rang, Shim Yeol Guk's son born through his wife. While Shim Yeol Guk, the danju of the Joseon dynasty, and a surrogate bore Jae-yi, Shim Yeol Guk and his wife bore Hong Rang. In the past, Danju was the owner of a merchant guild. On the show, Lee Jae Wook and Jo Bo Ah will play half-siblings because they share the same ancestors. Jae Yi was very close to her younger brother Hong-rang before he went away when she was a child. Before her half-brother vanished at the age of eight, he was the only person by her side in her small universe. She is recognised as Danju's happy-go-lucky but mischievous kid. She is described as having expressive speech and urgently tries to find him after he goes away.

Kim Hong Seon, who directed ‘Decoy: Part 1’ and ‘Decoy: Part 2,’ as well as ‘The Guest,’ ‘The Voice,’ and ‘Money Heist: Korea - Joint Economic Area,’ will oversee the production.

Meanwhile, Kim Jae Wook is apparently in negotiations to play Prince Han Pyeong, the current King's only sibling. Prince Han Pyeong has no interest in politics or court issues and is just overly concerned with art. Kim Jae Wook's first historical drama in 15 years after 'The Kingdom of the Winds.'
