Into the Flames (Korean불꽃 속으로; RRBulkkot Sogeuro) is a 2014 South Korean television series. It aired on cable channel TV Chosun on Fridays and Saturdays at 23:00 for 20 episodes from April 25 to June 28, 2014.[1][2]


Based on the life of Park Tae-joon, founder and honorary chairman of multinational steel-making company POSCO,[3][4] this is the story of the people who battled poverty and despair after the colonial era and the Korean War with a relentless pursuit of economic innovation, and the choices they made in the name of love, loyalty and sacrifice. Park worked tirelessly to build a mill that produced steel, which became pivotal to Korea's modernization.[5]

The early working title was Park's moniker Steel King (Korean강철왕).[6][7]
