tvN’s “Arthdal Chronicles 2” has unveiled insight into the current relationship of its four main characters!
“Arthdal Chronicles” is an epic fantasy drama about the mythical ancient land of Arth. Four years after the end of the first season, the series will be returning for its second season—entitled “Arthdal Chronicles: The Sword of Aramun”—this September.
“Arthdal Chronicles: The Sword of Aramun” is set approximately a decade after Season 1, with Lee Joon Gi and Shin Se Kyung joining the cast as older versions of the original leads. Lee Joon Gi will be taking over the dual roles of twins Eun Seom and Sa Ya (which were played by Song Joong Ki in Season 1), while Shin Se Kyung will be taking over the role of Tan Ya (originally played by Kim Ji Won). Jang Dong Gun will be reprising his role as Ta Gon, the first king of Arthdal, and Kim Ok Bin will play his queen Tae Al Ha.
Ahead of the drama’s upcoming premiere, “Arthdal Chronicles 2″ has revealed the changing dynamics between Ta Gon, Tae Al Ha, Eun Seom, and Tan Ya. Now eight years later, their societal positions have undergone significant shifts, leading to complexities arising from their different goals.
Especially intriguing is the complex relationship between Ta Gon and Tae Al Ha, now the reigning king and queen of Arthdal. Their bond takes an unpredictable turn as they hold unimaginable authority yet are ready to shed blood for even greater power.
Most importantly, the presence of their child Arok has shifted their priorities away from personal gains. While they’re still on each other’s sides, Ta Gon and Tae Al Ha do not completely trust each other, making their precarious relationship a highlight for viewers.
Adding to the anticipation is the long-awaited reunion between Eun Seom and Tan Ya, childhood friends from the Wahan clan. While Eun Seom still struggles to free the enslaved Wahan clan in Arthdal, Tan Ya remains unaware that Eun Seom now leads the Ago Union and continues to search relentlessly for him, holding onto the hope of his survival.
While they haven’t openly expressed their feelings for each other, as their longing grows, so does the romantic affection they have for each other. However, Eun Seom’s quest for victory in the great war and Tan Ya’s mission to avert a world of bloodshed will collide in a compelling clash between love and duty, making viewers curious about the two’s upcoming fate.
Although they have yet to express their feelings for each other, their longing deepens, fostering a stronger romantic affection between them. However, Eun Seom’s quest for victory in the great war and Tan Ya’s mission to avert a world of bloodshed will collide in a compelling clash between love and duty, heightening viewers’ anticipation for their upcoming destinies.
Writer Park Sang Yeon aptly describes Ta Gon and Tae Al Ha’s dynamic as a “game of doubt and trust,” hinting at the upcoming tension between the royal couple. Similarly, writer Kim Young Hyun emphasizes that “Arthdal Chronicles 2” will revolve around “choices and conflicts between love and duty” for Eun Seom and Tan Ya.
“Arthdal Chronicles 2” premieres on September 9 at 9:20 p.m. KST.
