The following are screencaps from the drama opening of SBS Princess Ja Myung Go which will make its debut in February, starring Ryeo Won, Park Min Young, Jung Kyung Ho, etc. No video link could be found as yet so please make do with only the screencaps of Park Min Young from the opening.
The huge circular drum in the middle is the famed mystical wardrum of Nangnang-guk. Legend has it that the mystical wardrum will sound once invaders start to approach Nangnang-guk, giving the latter ample chance to prepare and repel the enemy. Something like a Star Wars force field.
Princess Nak Rang (Park Min Young) storming the tower that houses the mystical wardrum to destroy it so that her one and only love, Prince Ho Dong and his Goguryeo nation can claim Nangnang-guk once and for all.
Some random scene.

Princess Ja Myung Go was supposed to make its debut on 16th February on SBS. But with its predecessor drama Terroir pre-empted by SBS who chose to broadcast back-to-back movies for the first 2 days of the New Year and other reasons, the broadcast date has been rescheduled to 9th March instead.
For those into the history of Goguryeo, the timeline of Princess Ja Myung Go is like a continuation of the Jumong-Yuri-Daemusin legacy (first 3 kings of Goguryeo) with some overlapping from KBS Kingdom of the Winds which ended recently. Kingdom of the Winds itself is like a continuation of the story from MBC Jumong. While Jumong had a good storyline and action, I was very disappointed with the overall production of Kingdom of the Winds.
Will keep my fingers crossed for Princess Ja Myung Go.
