Jumong was the very first Korean historical drama to depict the Goguryeo period (BC37~668). The production cost approximately 3 billion won, and was loved by many viewers. The excellent performances by the actors made the program quite popular, and as a result the ratings shot up. The drama’s filming location attracts more than 5000 tourists daily.
Jumong is a collaborative piece, written by Jung Hyung-Su of “Damo” Choi Wan-Gyu of "Heojun” and “Sangdo,” attracting much interest from the very beginning of its production. These two writers are known as the ‘dream team’ of historical dramas in Korea. Also, the cast appeals to all ages. Song Il-Kook and Han Hye-Jin are popular among the younger generation, and Jeon Gwang-Ryeol and Oh Yeon-Su are loved by the older generation. This well-mixed cast allows Jumong to reach a wide range of viewers.

Gojoseon (BC2333~BC108) was conquered by China, after which the very first nation state Goguryeo was established (BC 37). The drama begins with the fall of Gojoseon. After losing their country, the people disperse. The migrants who have lost their country aimlessly roam around and live under Chinese rule. However, the tribal nations cannot accept the migrants because of pressure from China. During this upheaval, the young hero, Haemosu of Gojoseon creates an army to fight against China. But he is defeated by Cheolgigun (military soldiers who arm themselves with ironclad weapons), and disappears.
After his disappearance, Yuhwa finds she is carrying his child, a son, but becomes a royal concubine of Emperor Geumwa while she’s pregnant. Jumong grows up in the palace believing Geumwa is his father. However, his secret birth and the hostility from his half-brothers drive Jumong out of Buyeogung Palace. This drama is about Jumong’s journey after leaving the palace to establish a new nation.
