Rebel: Thief of the People

Rebel: Thief of the People (역적: 백성을 훔친 도적)

Starring and

A popular thief and leader of a band of smugglers grows up poor in the time of the Joseon Dynasty’s most infamous and brutal tyrant king. By winning people’s hearts and listening to his own call, he becomes the first revolutionary of the Joseon era and leads an effort to bring down the emperor.

Hong Gil Dong (Yoon Kyoon Sang from Doctor Crush) is the son of chamberlain Ah Mo Gae (Kim Sang Joong from A New Leaf) and Geum Ok (Shin Eun Jung from Hyde, Jekyll and I). Hong Gil Dong’s grandfather was also a chamberlain. He is himself meant to be a chamberlain. The world told him he couldn’t be much, being a “lowborn.” But Hong Gil Dong is brilliant, both mentally and physically. He has watched his father lied to, year after year, by nobles who told them they would free him and his family. He has watched his mother beaten for making a mistake in front of the nobles while he watched helplessly. His father wishes to see the corrupt royal establishment fall. Hong Gil Dong lives life under the weight of the torture his family has faced, and the stigma of being the child of lowly birth. Initially, he is simply a child (Lee Ro Woon) trying to find his way in the world. Eventually, he embraces his destiny, gains a conscience, becomes the leader of a band of smugglers, and starts a revolution against tyranny. Hong Gil Dong is the thief that steals the nation’s heart and becomes a legend.

If there is one person who doesn’t like that legend, however, it’s Lee Young (Kim Ji Suk from Another Oh Hae Young). He is a politician and murderer. However, most people know him only as King Yeonsangun. He believes all people are evil by nature. He has spilled untold amounts of blood in order to strengthen his rule. After a while, however, he begins to wonder. Is he killing because of his royal duty, or because he likes the sight of blood?

Song Ga Ryung (Chae Soo Bin from Moonlight Drawn by Clouds) is a young widow that Hong Ga Dil once saved. She grows up wishing for nothing but revenge. Day after day, she dreams of the day she can carry out her plan to lure the king into her trap, stabbing him in the back before he can escape. Even if she has to seduce him and give up her own life, Song Ga Ryung is determined to get payback against the king for killing her husband.

Jang Nok Soo (Lee Ha Nui from Please Come Back, Mister) is a royal concubine of King Yeonsangun. A femme fatale, Jang Nok Soo is dangerous and the mad king’s only true confidante. She will willingly risk her life for the king, but she still hasn’t forgotten her first true love, Hong Dil Dong.

Rebel: Thief of the People is also known as “Traitor Hong Gil Dong” and “Rebel Hong Gil Dong.” It is directed by Kim Jil Man of Kill Me, Heal Me fame and written by Hwang Jin Young (King’s Daughter: Soo Baek Hyang). It will debut on MBC on January 30, 2017, airing every Monday and Tuesday at 10:00PM. The drama marks the first time that either Yoon Kyun Sang or Chae Soo Bin are the leads in a drama, both having previously worked as supporting cast members in several dramas. Rebel is the latest in a line of comic books, movies and dramas made on the (ficitional, but supposedly inspired by a real person) Korean folk hero Hong Gil Dong, the last adaptation of which was a 2008 KBS drama starring Kang Ji Hwan.

The extended cast for Rebel: Thief of the People includes Yoon Kyun Sang as Hong Gil Dong, Chae Soo Bin as Song Ga Ryung, Lee Ha Nui as Jang Nok Soo, Kim Ji Suk as Lee Yung / King Yeonsangun, Kim Sang Joong as Hong Gil Dong's father Ah Moo Gae, Kim Jung Tae as Lee Jung / Prince Chungwon, and Shin Eun Jung as Hong Gil Dong's Mother.
