Hwarang 화랑: 더 비기닝 translates literally to Flower Knights and it will center around the warriors of the Kingdom of Silla who are as skilled as they are beautiful. Sounds cheesy, I know, but just look at the styling and makeup, so much kitsch but who cares when there's a load of eye candy to make up for it.
Is this the historical version of Boys over Flowers? The series stars Park Seo Joon, Park Hyung Shik, Go Ara and a number of flower boys to complete the cast.
After the volcanic eruption of Descendants of the Sun, Hwarang follows its footsteps as an entirely pre-produced drama and it is set for a simultaneous premiere in Korea and China in December.
