1. The first teaser for Moon that Embraces the Sun is out.



Whenever I see a trailer full of only sageuk kids, my first instinct is to run. At this point, it will take a miracle for me to watch this.

2. Out of possibly terminal stupidity, I decided to check out Goong S. Surely it can't be as bad as everyone says, thought I. I thought wrong. The horrifying leads cannot act and have no chemistry and the screenplay was written by a tree. This might possibly be the worst kdrama I've ever seen - it's not even campily bad, just a horrifying time-waste conduit.

3. I also checked out the cdrama Splendid Life, a cdrama remake of Brilliant Legacy. Jerry Yan is a long drink of cool water but this is pretty much word-for-word remake so I don't see the point of watching once I've seen the original.

4. Goong S was clearly not enough to satisfy my inner masochist, because driven by a PadamPadam-inspired bout of Jung Woo Sung love, I decided to give Athena: Goddess of War another chance. I thought seeing that now I know it was just loud, slick, soulless action thing, I could enjoy it better due to adjusted expectations. We'll see. Have a pretty MV:



5. Watching Tree with Deep Roots got me quite interested in Sejong. Anyone know if 2008 drama Great King Sejong is subbed? I am not sure if I have the fortitude to sit through 80+ eps but I have been watching subbed clips of it on youtube with a great deal of enjoyment, concentrating on the dysfunctional royal family ones. Apparently, )at least according to the drama) before making Sejong's wife Queen, Taejong had her Daddy executed, the rest of her family demoted to lowest ranks, and eight concubines 'donated' to Sejong, all so that no woman would have much influence. That must have made for an interesting marriage for Sejong and wife...
