KBS presents the new ambitious drama series Hong Gil Dong
, putting a major comical spin on one of the most notorious fictional characters in Korean history - Hong Gil Dong, Korea's own Robin Hood. Touted as Korea's first fusion period comedy ever to be put on the small screen, the much anticipated drama starring Kang Ji Hwan (Capital Scandal
) as Hong Gil Dong and Sung Yu Ri (The Snow Queen
) as his love counterpart, comes jam-packed with hours and hours of spectacular martial arts scenes and wire action combined with witty, hilarious episodes. Adding much excitement and thrills to the drama is the soundtrack featuring Girls' Generation, No Brain, Kim Hyung Joong, Park Wan Kyu, plus many more.
Upbeat disco number Jakeun Bae ("A Small Boat" - Track 5), which serves as the drama's love theme, features the signature effervescence of Girls' Generation. The group's leader, Tae Yeon, sings her first solo cut in Manyakeh ("Perhaps"- Track 2). Known for their notable work in the Radio Star soundtrack, talented indie band No Brain offers their punk rock sound in Naneun Jaesugajoah ("I Am Lucky" - Track 1). In addition, get ready to have your heartstrings pulled with Yeon, a beautiful flowing ballad sung by Park Wan Kyu. Other highlights include Kim Hyung Joong's Pureun Byeol ("Blue Star" - Track 3) and hip-hop number U Can't Stop (Keep on moving) (Track 8) featuring vocalist EJ and rapper B-Box.
