In the newly released stills, Jang Dong Yoon and Kim So Hyun are spotted enjoying a date as they hold hands and take a stroll in a field of flowers. When the two face each other, Kim So Hyun shyly looks down as Jang Dong Yoon puts his hand on her face, making viewers curious about how their romance will progress in the upcoming episodes.
Last week’s episode featured an unexpected reunion of Nokdu (Jang Dong Yoon) and Dong Joo (Kim So Hyun). The reunion made many viewers’ hearts both flutter and ache at the same time as Dong Joo was forced to act cold and indifferent towards Nokdu despite her true feelings, but Nokdu bravely confessed his feelings for her. In addition, the episode heightened the tension of the drama even more when Nokdu and Dong Joo finally met King Gwanghae (Jung Joon Ho). This meeting made things complicated as it was later revealed that Nokdu is the son of King Gwanghae, while Dong Joo is on her quest for revenge against the King. The two are now put in even more danger as Yul Moo (Kang Tae Oh), who is after the throne, also found out the secret about Nokdu and his father.
The production team said, “In the midst of crisis, Nok Du and Dong Joo’s relationship will go through a romantic change. As the two have had sincere feelings for each other for a long time, the excitement from their deepened feelings will open up the second half of the drama.”
Episodes 19 and 20 of “The Tale of Nokdu” will air on November 4 at 10:00 p.m. KST.
