Also how the crown prince will create a mess in the lives of his family and the kingdom. The availability of the drama will get clear once it releases on the original network.
In my opinion, the drama is going to perform average on the rating part. History and horror are not everyone’s cup of tea not everyone has a keen interest in history-related drama. The execution looks interesting and the expected plot too. This is something different when comes to the plot but typical when it comes to the horror part. There are a total of 16 episodes. Also, the series is neither too long nor too short. The duration of each episode is around 1 hour 10 minutes. Personally, the drama is looking interesting due to the plot and the evil spirit concept it can only judge after it gets a green signal and release on SBS TV. Overall the in-depth review will be shared once the drama gets a release.
The plot of the series Joseon Exorcist revolves around the lives of the kingdom and its people. It seems to be moving around the life of Lee Bang Won. He is given the region of the north in the Joseon dynasty. He is been ruling over the place. Initially, he was patrolling, and then he became the prince. He is one of the people who took over the evil spirit and sealed it from harming the people of his kingdom. Lee Bang Won is the chosen ascendant of the throne. He chooses to be called king Taejon. The story will be seen from When Prince Lee Bang-Won of Joseon patrolled the northern region, he faced an evil spirit. The spirit wanted to dominate human beings and rule over them. Prince Lee Bang-Won was able to seal the spirit and took that away from the evil spirit.
After that, the ascendant Lee Bang-Won takes the title of King Taejong (Kam Woo-Sung). The king will be seen as quite cool-headed and calm. King Taejong is proud to be the part of the plan he helps his father. However, at some point, he is having the guilt of the death of the people during the foundation of the Joseon dynasty. Overall the plot will take a turn when the evil spirit which was somewhat sealed by the king establishes its foot in the land of Joseon. To save the people the kingdom the king has to fight against the spirit and destroy the evil this time.
This will be the basic plot with the addition of the two sons of king Taejon. The story will introduce the sons first one is the Crown Prince Yangnyeong (Park Sung-Hoon) and the other prince is Chungnyung (Jang Dong-Yoon). Chungnyung (Jang Dong-Yoon) is only keen on academics he has zero interest in ruling and the kingdom. Due to this, he has to change the direction because of the sudden evil crises caused in Joseon.
He gets into a fight with the evil spirit to save the people of Joseon. The plot takes another turn when the crown prince Yangnyeong in a misunderstanding with his father’s behavior goes against the kingdom to win the crown and shakes hand with the evil spirit. Though king Taejong has a heartily desire of making Yangnyeong the next crown holder. Due to the misunderstanding and the greed of power take Yangnyeong making the wrong decision. Also, he will be seen causing much trouble to the people of Joseon over the crown.
In my opinion, the plot will turn into dirty politics and greed power. The crown prince Yangnyeong will be continuing taking the wrong decision which will affect the dynasty and the rule. Over that the younger brother will prove to be the savior and he will be working to save the people from the destruction of the evil spirit. Overall the drama will be interesting but boring at some point. The one who loves history and loves to read about it will have more keen interest.
The main attraction of the plot will be the horror thing. It will collect the view count more. Overall the series does look wholesome and full of conspiracies and deaths.
