Summary : Adapted from Oh Se-Young’s 원행 (Journey), Channel CGV’s first ever drama 8일 (Eight Days) was a success on all fronts, surprising many sageuk fans who were expecting total collapse of the genre around 2007, and were blessed with this badass, hard-hitting political thriller instead. Costing 4 billion won for a mere 10 episodes, this was on average one of the most expensive sageuk of all time, bringing in acclaimed film director Park Jong-Won — who, interestingly, directed what’s still the best big screen Korean sageuk of the last 20 years, that 영원한 제국 (The Eternal Empire) which… sure enough, dealt with more or less the same period as this show — and TV sageuk veteran Kim Won-Seok, who wrote the fantastic 임꺽정 (Im Kkeok-Jeong) over a decade ago. It cast sageuk mainstays like Kim Sang-Joong, Jung Ae-Ri and Kim Gi-Hyeon along with interesting newcomers like Jo Han-Joon. And, last but not least, it interpreted this historical period with the kind of verve and panache only those well versed in the genre and period can do. It might not be as easily accessible as what passes on as sageuk nowadays, but any history buff will find the “theories” exposed here particularly relevant, especially a jaw-to-the-floor moment highlighting the double standards of the famous 한중록 (The Memoirs of Lady Hyegyeong), which many people still consider an historical document worth the paper it was written on, when it’s clearly not the case.

The drama is about the assassination attempts on Emperor Jeong Jo's life during the 8 day period when he left the palace for a ceremony to honor his father who was killed by his grandfather.
