A 20 billion won blockbuster, Kim Soo Ro
was the first drama ever to be shot in 3D video. Tracing the life of a legendary Korean figure, it stars Ji Sung (Swallow the Sun
) and veteran actors Bae Jong Ok and Yoo Oh Sung. The epic historical drama tells the story of Kim Soo Ro, the legendary founder and ruler of the city-state of Geumgwan Gaya in the 5th century (known in Korean history as the Three Kingdoms Period).
Kim Soo Ra (played by Ji Sung) is heir to the throne at a time when the kingdom is in great unrest and Korea divided. As he fights to survive and claim his rights in a vicious political battle that will last for years, he must struggle against rival Ijinashi (Go Joo Won), his half-brother, who will do anything to take the throne. Relying only on passion, charisma, and his wits, Soo Ra fights his way into power and founds the city-state of Geumgwan Gaya, which goes on to dominate the sea trade and iron working during that period. Meanwhile former friends and ambitious courtiers try to bring him down, while a woman (Seo Ji Hye) enters his life.
