YesAsia Editorial Description

MBC's hugely popular Jumong is the first of a wave of Korean historical dramas dealing with the Goguryeo Dynasty (approximately 37 BC-AD 668). Written by veteran Choi Wan Gyu (Hur Jun, Sang Do, and All In) and Jung Hyung Soo (Damo), Jumong is one of Korea's most impressive and popular historical dramas. It dominated television screens during its broadcast, attracting viewership ratings of over 40% in Korea.

Jumong is the name of the legendary founder of Goguryeo, King Dongmyeongseong. The story starts with the conflict between Gojoseon, an ancient Korean kingdom, and Han Chinese forces, eventually leading to a fragmented Korean Peninsula. Hero-in-the-making Jumong (Song Il Kook, Emperor of the Sea) is born in this time of chaos and struggle in the little independent state of Buyeo. He quickly finds himself the most unlikely of princes and the victim of a rivalry with his brother Dae So (Kim Seung Soo, A Million Roses). He is forced to choose between the boyish charm of young merchant So Seo No (Han Hye Jin; Be Strong, Geum Soon!) and the innocent smile of Bu Yeong (Im So Young), a servant he's known for years. Other than chronicling Jumong's slow coming-of-age path, the first part of Jumong also deals with the touchy relationship between Buyeo and the Han, with King Geum Wa (Chun Kwang Ryul, Hur Jun) torn between loyalty to his rebel friend Hae Mo Su (Hur Jun Ho, Silmido) and the fate of his nation.

This volume comes with a 28-page full-color Reference Guide (Part 1) containing cast and character profiles, Jumong glossary, and a short guide to Korean history.

    목숨보다 더 사랑했지만 전부가 될 수 없었던 역사보다 거대한 사랑 역사가 되어버린 단 하나의 사랑이 부활한다
    “내 운명을 왕자님께 걸겠습니다.” 당신의 여왕 소서노 -

    운명에 맞서 싸운 신화보다 위대한 영웅 주몽- 고구려의 하늘을 연 승리의 이야기
    “나 또한 아가씨에게 내 운명을 걸겠습니다.” 당신의 왕 주몽-

    MBC 특별기획 드라마 '주몽'이 고구려 건국신화인 주몽신화를 인간의 역사로 극화해 시선을 모은다. 고구려의 시조인 '주몽'의 일대기를 다루는 이 사극은 신화로만 남아있던 '주몽'의 일대기를 작가의 상상력을 바탕으로 인간의 이야기로 다시 쓰게 된다.

    주몽 신화에서는 주몽이 인간 유화부인과 천신의 아들 해모수의 사이에서 태어나, 알에서 깨어나는 신과 인간의 중간적 존재로 상정한다. 드라마 '주몽'에서는 해모수(허준호)를 고조선의 유민이자 영웅으로 부여 국왕인 금와왕(전광렬)과 유화부인(오연수)를 두고 삼각관계를 이루는 인물로 설정했다. 또한 주몽 신화에서 부여의 왕자들에게 질시를 받거나, 하늘의 도움으로 강을 건너는 등 신화적이며 비현실적인 부분들은 제거되며, 주몽을 도와 고구려를 건국한 여걸 소서노(한혜진)의 역할이 신화보다 더욱 명확하게 대두될 예정이다. 그러나 고조선에서 고구려로 이행하는 당시 시기에 대한 사료가 극단적으로 부족하기 때문에, 당대 문화나 인물 고증에서 작가적 상상력이 많이 개입될 것으로 알려졌다.

    기존 사극이 사료에 기반을 두고 신화를 만들어가는 과정이라면, '주몽'의 경우 신화를 현대적 리얼리티로 기반하고 해체하는 작업이라, 이 새로운 시도가 어떤 형태의 사극으로 나타날지 눈길이 쏠리고 있다.

    기원전 108년, 2100년 동안 대제국을 영유했던 고조선은 한나라와 1년여에 걸친 전쟁 끝에 멸망하고, 고조선의 영토에 낙랑, 진번, 임둔, 현토군을 설치한다. 고조선의 유민들은 들불같은 저항을 시작하고, 그 중심에 해모수가 있었다. 부여의 왕 해부루는 해모수의 활약으로 고조선 유민들이 부여에 정착하게 된 사실에 여느 때처럼 기뻐하지만, 이번에는 한나라 황제가 총애하는 자가 죽었기 때문에 유민들을 보호했다간 큰 화를 면치 못할 것이라는 부득불의 충언에 근심이 쌓인다. 한편, 부여의 운명을 점치는 신녀 여미을은 부여의 해 속에 세 개의 다리를 가진 삼족오가 떠올랐다 사라졌는데 두 개의 다리는 해부루와 금와가 명백한데 나머지가 어떤 존재인지 가늠키 어렵다는 알 수 없는 말을 하고... 현토성 태수가 각 부족 수장들을 소환하자 금와는 아버지를 대신해 현토성에 가게 되는데 그 곳에서 하백의 딸 유화를 만난다. 태수는 해모수를 돕거나 숨긴 자를 처단할 것이라 선포하더니 부족 수장들 앞에서 철기군을 내세워 무자비하게 고조선 유민들을 처단한다. 이를 지켜보던 금와는 분노가 끓어오르지만 후환이 두려워 이도 저도 하지 못하고 있는데, 갑자기 나타난 유화가 살육을 멈추라 소리치고...

    BEYOND EXPECTATIONS Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I bought this entire series last year & I've watched it 4 times in amongst watching other TV shows & movies. It's just THAT GOOD. I don't speak much Korean, but the subtitles all seem REALLY GOOD. There was only 2 spots I found where a small tiny spelling error had been made, but it was very minor. Even if you've seen it all it still keeps you on the edge of your seat watching each episode one after the other. The plot is genius & the costumes, props & sets are amazingly realistic & authentic. Also, the battles & fighting seems so realistic as well. It's the REAL thing. All the acting is amazingly superb. My favorite character is Hyupbo as he makes me laugh. The boxsets all come in superior packaging. Each boxset is a REAL thick box that holds closed at the side by a magnetic piece. Inside when opened is two flip-out cardboard things that hold each disk in a plastic jewel thing that's heavily glued onto the beautifully decorated case. Each disk has 3 episodes(60 mins per episode) except for the final DVD of each boxset which has 1-2 episodes & the bonus material. The final bonus stuff at the very end of the 4th boxset was GREAT to watch. There was hilarious bloopers, great talk show interview thing where you got to be even more up close with the actors. Was really funny as well. There was also some behind the scenes photoshoots & more. Very interesting to watch. Vols 1&3 also come with reference guides that explain bits about history of these times, tell you about some of the characters a little & give you an introduction to the actors that play them all. Jumong is intriguing, intense & makes you really think about all he did for these people during a time when things like slavery & torture were common & treated as "normal". I was also SO pleased to see that they portrayed love in this show without the need of seeing people in bed without their clothes on. I also have watched this with my roommates who were not familiar with Korean shows before this & are also now big fans of it as well. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND & DEEPLY ENCOURAGE EVERYONE WHO LOVES GREAT PLOTS, ACTING, SCENERY AND MORE TO BUY ALL 4 VOLUMES OF THIS SHOW. IT'S AN AMAZING MASTERPIECE!
    Btw, if Region1 isn't your region, YA carries All Region DVD Players. I have 3 for each room in my home. ^_^

    Jumong Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I am kinda disappointed in channel fifty o three NTDTV. I am going to telling you why I am disappointed in this TV station, for on reason is because the station went off the air yesterday, and today. I do not what the problem is but they need to put this station on TV tonight. They need to start the beginning of this movie Jumong. There were other movie that was on this TV station. I am missing the part where Jumong finally get to see his son, and rescue his first wife in this movie. I really enjoy this movie. I would like for New Tang Dynasty V to come back on the air. I would like to see the beginning of the movie called Jumong.

    Super Addicting Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I had heard nothing but good things about this Drama, and up until this one I wasn't too familiar with ANY K-Dramas at all. I've been getting sick of a lot of the stuff on American TV, and finally decided to purchase this boxset when I saw that YA had a ton of these K-Dramas on sale. So it finally arrived yesterday, and in good timing as well. The boxset is made extremely strong. It opens up from the side of a piece that's magnetic holding it closed. Sitting at top when you open it is a small reference guide book and two fold-out cases holding the 7-Disks very well in place. The reference guide is extremely helpful and explains in a couple pages some very interesting things about Korean history, which will also better help you enjoy the show. In it is also some bits about Korean etiquette, three-legged crow, the old fashioned way they spoke in telling time and short introductions to all major characters along with a little about the actor that plays each one. The DVDs are all very nice and each DVD has 3 episodes(60 mins per episode). As for the show itself, I found that within less than 10mins into the 1st episode I was hooked. The acting is all superb and the story just keeps going and going keeping you glued to your seat. There's always something going on that you don't wanna miss out on. The fighting is also very realistically and well done. They're actually using real fighting techniques that people used during that period. I've already ordered the other volumes(2,3&4), and I Highly Recommend You Do As Well. It's A Purchase Worth The Time And Money.

    Great History Drama Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    Jumong is a great Korean history drama. I like it a lot.
    The story was grand. The images and BGM were excellent. The production team put all 81 episodes together were amazing.

    The only thing I hate was the subtitles; characters’ names got changed and country names got changed. I have to rely on my limited Korean to understand it.
