Actor Lee Joon-gi has dominated the screen with an overwhelming presence that cannot be replaced through his role in ‘Arthdal Chronicles: The Sword of Aramoon’

On the 9th, in tvN’s ‘Arthdal Chronicles: The Sword of Aramoon,’ Lee Joon-gi filled the work with a flawless performance in the dual roles of ‘Eunseom,’ the powerful leader from the eastern continent ‘Eunseom,’ and ‘Saya,’ the commander-in-chief of Arthdal who has lived a discriminated life. In the first broadcast, Lee Joon-gi appeared as ‘Eunseom,’ revealing his face by removing his mask and captivating the viewers with his unique aura.

The subsequent revelation of Eunseom’s precarious identity and the development where Saya realizes that Eunseom is the “Naesigi” (chosen one) kept viewers engaged throughout. Especially, Eunseom, the outstanding leader of the many Agon warriors, charging towards the battlefield, shouting, “For the Waterfall and the Agoha Forest!” with magnificent and spectacular action sequences provided an exhilarating catharsis.

Furthermore, the heart-pounding narrative of the two brothers also drew attention. Tagon told Saya that he could secure his position as Arthdal’s successor by winning the war, throwing Saya into confusion. In a situation where only Saya knows that the enemy leader is his twin brother, the two brothers stood on opposing sides, adding more excitement to the drama. Later, they abandoned their original plan to work together with Eunseom and proposed an alliance to Saya. However, when Shatati suddenly arrived to kill Saya, Eunseom and Saya instinctively joined forces to confront her, delivering a touching brotherly bond. Amidst these swirling fates, the continuously changing circumstances of the two brothers left viewers feeling regretful.

In this way, Lee Joon-gi has proven himself as “the genre itself” with his desperate and splendid action performances, as well as his outstanding dual-role portrayal. He added depth to the narrative by expressing the multifaceted emotions of Eunseom and Saya through tone and gaze alone, making the characters feel like entirely different individuals. This has provided an intense immersive experience. As a result, curiosity is mounting about the fate that awaits the two characters and how Lee Joon-gi will continue to portray them in the future.

“Arthdal Chronicles: The Sword of Aramoon” airs every Saturday and Sunday at 9:20 PM KST on tvN.
