The Heroes of Arthdal

Set in the ancient city of Arthdal, a game of power among the tribes has summoned heroes of respective clans to protect their own.

Playing the role of Eunseom, Song Joong-ki (Descendants of the Sun) dons a character who relentlessly fights to protect his own tribe. Appearing to be innocent-looking, his protective instincts are staunch, always ready to be belligerent in defending his kinfolks.

Jang Dong-gun (Suits) plays Tagon, the son of Sanung who is the leader of Saenyeok Tribe. Charismatic and skillful, he hides his emotions that no one knows when he will explode with anger and rage.
