In the tradition of Hong Gil Dong comes THE DUO
, another swashbuckling tale of a bandit hero who fights for the people. Chun Jung Myung, who shot to popularity with his intense turn in 2010's hit Cinderella's Sister
, takes the lead, while established actress Han Ji Hye (East of Eden
) and Lee Sang Yoon (Life is Beautiful
) star opposite him. A fusion sageuk
(historical) that combines action and romance in a fun blend, The Duo has been an easy hit for ratings.
Chun Doong (played by Chun Jung Myun) is born into a noble family, but is switched at birth with the son of a peasant family. Growing up poor and downtrodden, he gradually grows angry as he watches the oppression around him, and becomes a heroic outlaw. Meanwhile, Gwi Dong (Lee Sang Yoon), the child he was switched with, grows up as a privileged nobleman, and becomes a head of the police. The two men, unconsciously living each other's lives, are total opposites - one stands for justice through the law and the other seeks justice by breaking the law. Fate has something else in mind for them when they both fall for a beautiful woman (Han Ji Hye)... Watch THE DUO on DramaFever!
