I have been watching The king Eternal Monarch on Netflix, its not bad, plays like a historical drama. The rest of it is pretty good, great cinematography and musical score (the instrumental tracks, not the pop songs ).
It actually received a lot of criticism in Korea for too much sponsorship advertisements in the drama. Many were making fun out of the drama saying that it was as if it's a 1 hr long commercial rather than a drama.
Wait, they're doing a love story between Jeongjo and Uibin again?
Well, it's been 13 years since Yi San. One difference is it won't turn Uibin into a painter like they did with Yi San because that was something Yi San writers made up. Not saying this drama isn't fictional, but it probably won't take fiction from another drama in it.
Lee Yoo Ri and Yeon Jung Hoon will play the leads in the upcoming Channel A drama Lies of Lies. It's about a woman who goes to jail for a crime she didn't commit. She gives birth to a girl while in jail. The baby is taken away from her and adopted by a news reporter. When the woman gets out of jail, she approaches the news reporter with the hopes of marrying him and becoming her daughter's stepmom. It'll air in September.
Lies of Lies was supposed to air earlier this year but got delayed until September. I like the pairing and the plot is so crazy that I'm actually interested. If the trailers look good, I'll put up a board for this series.
Just wanted to let everyone know that I have been watching "The King: Enternal Monarch" on Netflix and have really, really enjoyed it. It is about 2 parrallel Koreas -- one spelled at Corea and the other Korea -- and what happens when the two start to interact. I thought the acting was good and the plot well written.
Knov1--- thanks for always posting things you have watched-- I am currently watching "One Spring Night" and I am really enjoying it. Looking forward to "Undercover"--- haven't seen Ji Jin Hee in anything lately and I like his acting.
Skip the first 20 episodes its the usual girl pretends to be a man,gets herself some followers yada yada .
Eps 20-31 are saved by Gwanghae and Lady Kim. These make it worth watching even when princess dullard shows up. I did like that Gwanghaes balancing act between Ming and Jin ends with his downfall .
Next up the mentally unstable Injo is great, its only ruined by princess busybody.
It was not as bad as i thought, but avoid the first 20 episodes. You won't miss anything because you have seen it all before . Its a shame the lead actress is so dull.She's a wanna be Haji Won at best.
Its a fusion drama as most of it is fiction of course. Its worth a watch through 20-50 just for Gwanghae and Injo. I do confess i fast forwarded through her love scenes .I have seen worse than this, also seen much better .
