Freeze ended over two weeks ago and nobody posted about the end? I liked the cast a lot and it didn't end exactly the way most vampire stories do. Five episodes is a good length for a series. I noticed from one week to the next, there was very little residual irritation with this series.
How'd everyone else like it? Did anyone else watch?
I watched it. Lee Seo Jin is one of my favorite actors, so watching was a must. ;D I'm a big Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, so some of the changes made to the legend of vampires were surprising: sunlight didn't burn them, and I didn't see any fangs. (That something I hadn't thought about, but it was mentioned in this review: vampirebooks.blogspot.com/2009/01/review-of-episode-1-3-of-freeze-korean.html ) There was a lot of fighting in Buffy, as well as angst, and Freeze just had the angst.
I couldn't figure out if vampires were a known threat or not. How many were there, and what did the others do for their "meals"? Were there really only 3? Weren't there blood banks they could rob? Angel bought blood from slaughterhouses, I think.
Something about the woman vampire's apartment reminded me of Highlander, the immortal Scotsman. He found a way to bequeath his accumulated wealth to himself under another name, to make up for his not aging. (Probably the vampire woman didn't have all that much stuff, though it was arranged to suggest riches, IMO.)
The storyline did make sense, though. Living forever and seeing loved ones grow old must be painful as well as pointless after a while. I'm glad for the young girl that she saw his end and wouldn't keep waiting for him to return, even though the scenes were emotional and shocking.
Nice picture of Lee Seo Jin: freeze photo (Oh, yeah, the young girl is in it too. lol)
Gin gin, I just fixed your link to the LSJ photo. (It fell "off" after the colon.)
Gosh, drama wiki sure has a lot of ads.
From Dae Jang-geum: Sun-dol: "Are you trying to dry me up and kill me? Why do you say the same things over and over every day? Rather, come and hit me once! Aigu!" But then: Dr. Lazarus: "By Grabthar's hammer, by the suns of Warvan... You shall be avenged."
I keep seeing ads for Star Trek t-shirts on my email and many other sites I visit, because I shopped a lot there the other night. Well, I just looked. Haven't decided yet if I'm getting one. t-shirts.cafepress.com/sci-fi
Some are pretty funny. "Vogon Bureaucracy Team" "I'm sorry, Dave, I can't do that"
