120723 Time Slip Dr. Jin: Insight into The Persecution of Catholics in Korean History and The Emergence of The Modern Christian Movement

        Insight into The Persecution of Catholics in Korean History and The Emergence of The Modern Christian Movement

There is reference in Time Slip Dr. Jin to the persecution of Catholics during the time of the Joseon Dynasty Period. We can see this being acted out on the screen as we watch this intriquing drama unfold. The reference cannot be over-looked because it is based on historical fact. Even the Priest, Father Simeon-Francois Beneux, who is being helped by Young Rae and Dr.Jin in Episode 18, is a real historical character. He and many other Catholics were martyred in 1866 during one of the toughest crack-downs on the Catholic believers in the history of Korea.

 ‘Time Slip Dr.Jin” is not a light drama. It is full of thought-provoking situations that are based in part upon the Joseon Dynasty’s political existence and character. I believe that the writer[s] have something to say, and this is an excellent forum for their voice[s]. As I am not of Korean descent, but only an admirer of the strength and resolve of the Korean people, I am going to rely upon sources who are hopefully more knowledgeable about what really occurred in Korea that ushered in the true influence of Catholicism and Protestantism. The following information was retrieved from the world-wide web on July 23, 2012. I am only providing links here as the articles are quite extensive. I learned a vast amount by reading these articles. If you are interested in the history behind Time Slip Dr. Jin, and how it relates to today, then enjoy your reading.

[News] 120508 JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong Appears In Historical Series

JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong is performing hard riding a horse and shooting action scenes for a historical series.

Kim plays the role of an attractive man named Kim Kyung Tak from the Joseon Dynasty in MBC’s new weekend series Dr. Jin, which will begin airing on May 26.

Kim, who is skilled in the military arts and has a sad hidden past, works at the police bureau. In the pictures, which were released on May 8, Kim drew a lot of attention thanks to his strong eyes and splendid appearance.

According to the production crew for the series, since Kim was cast in the series, he has been trying hard to get used to speaking and behaving like a person from the Joseon Dynasty. He is also preparing for the equestrian and action scenes.

 The production crew says, “Even though Kim has never appeared on a historical series before, he is performing very well. He surprised the entire crew by looking perfect in the historical costumes. He is trying very hard to portray his character, who is strong and manly. I’m sure he will capture the audience’s hearts.”

The series is based on the Japanese comic book written by Murakami Motoka of the same title. It is about a modern day Korean surgeon, who goes back in time to the Joseon Dynasty in the 1860s, and works there as a doctor.
