Goddess of Fire Jeongi

image

The saeguk fatigue is getting to me. I just like the fact the angle is towards the arts rather than political intrigue and fantasy. Plus Kim Bum in a leading role that he so deserves.

The 32-episode historical drama will be helmed by the PD of Heading to the Ground and the writer of Warrior Baek Dong-soo. It takes place in late 16th-century Joseon, and will be based on the life of a real historical figure — ceramic artist Baek Pa-sun, who was the first female potter in Joseon. The drama will follow her eventful life story.

At the end of the 16th century, the Ceramic Department of the Royal Joeson court was melding art and technique to make the most exquisite pottery. Ryu Yoo Jeong had a natural talent for ceramic making set a goal for herself to become the most exalted potter in all of Joeson. Faced with complicated backstabbing in the court and competition to rise up potter ranks, Yeo Jeong endures repetitive attacks but in the end, uses her talent and hardwork to beat nemesis Lee Yook Do. She rises to the top but due to the political instability that befalls Prince Gwanghae, their love does not have a happy ending. She was among the artisans forcibly taken to Japan during the late-16th century Japanese invasions, and made to continue her craft for the Japanese. To end the unrest, she decides to sacrifice herself. With her childhood companion, Kim Tae Do, Yeo Jeong spreads pottery to the Japanese.

Goddess of Fire Jung-yi will follow Gu Family Book and premieres July 1 on MBC.

Their family-affectionate love naturally becomes romantic. He eventually becomes her  husband and the bodyguard of Gwanghae.
