It’s hard to say. The show that SHOULD follow next is Scandal in Old Seoul (aka Capital Scandal) but Chicago is now so far behind KBS America that you guys might just leapfrog over to the show currently running on KBS America, Six Martyred Ministers (aka Sayuksin).
Six Martyred Ministers is a Chosun-era historical drama about Prince Suyang’s seizure of power, and his dictatorial rule. It’s a KBS/North Korean co-production, and has gotten rather lukewarm reviews. I’m watching it right now, but I honestly could take it or leave it. Good enough to keep watching, but nothing particularly special. It’s said to be 24 episodes long.
If I had the choice, I’d definitely go with Scandal in Old Seoul. It’s a period drama (1920’s, in Japanese-occupied Korea) that’s really a little peculiar. It’s about a group of secretive Korean freedom fighters plotting to assassinate high-ranking Japanese officials, and while it’s sometimes deadly serious, at other times it’s just plain silly. It’s a weird little drama series, but even so I REALLY liked it. It’s a short-running drama, only 16 episodes.
If I get the chance, I‘ll write up an intro page to Scandal in Old Seoul sometime next week.
