A 20 billion won blockbuster, Kim Soo Ro was the first drama ever to be shot in 3D video. Tracing the life of a legendary Korean figure, it stars Ji Sung (Swallow the Sun) and veteran actors Bae Jong Ok and Yoo Oh Sung. The epic historical drama tells the story of Kim Soo Ro, the legendary founder and ruler of the city-state of Geumgwan Gaya in the 5th century (known in Korean history as the Three Kingdoms Period).
Kim Soo Ra (played by Ji Sung) is heir to the throne at a time when the kingdom is in great unrest and Korea divided. As he fights to survive and claim his rights in a vicious political battle that will last for years, he must struggle against rival Ijinashi (Go Joo Won), his half-brother, who will do anything to take the throne. Relying only on passion, charisma, and his wits, Soo Ra fights his way into power and founds the city-state of Geumgwan Gaya, which goes on to dominate the sea trade and iron working during that period. Meanwhile former friends and ambitious courtiers try to bring him down, while a woman (Seo Ji Hye) enters his life.
