Chun Jung Myung/Han Ji Hye sageuk about a son of an aristocrat and a son of a slave switched at birth, has released this teaser:



Obviously, this is from the early eps as they are still filming.

Hmmmmm. I loathe the bizarre, washed out, overlay on this - it makes me feel as if I am looking through a dirty soup strainer. It's like a 10-yr-old who got his hands on photoshop for the first time. One of the big selling points for any drama, but especially period drama, is the visuals - so why make it look so horrible in the teaser when I am sure it looks OK in reality.

Also, too much screaming. Just an awful teaser for what I am sure will be a decent drama. Compare that teaser to the one for the 2009 period drama The Kingdom of the Winds (I picked KOTW because it was also a period drama which was not prefilmed thus only first few eps were used for a teaser):



KOTW is how you do the teaser, people. That one would make me watch a drama of which I previously was unaware. The Duo's teaser would make me want to skip the drama except for the fact that I've been avidly expecting it and also know it's not as off-looking as the teaser makes it seem.

And speaking of period dramas, [livejournal.com profile] ockoala convinced me to try out Seo Dong Yo by promising me some epic period romance but I looked up the number of eps and it's 55. Fifty-five!. That's longer than Chuno and Return of Iljimae combined! *weeps* I am going to brave it anyway, so we'll see how it goes. Have a MV:



I sort of feel like a Tamra/Hong Gil Dong/ROI/KOTW/Chuno rewatch (not at the same time, obviously). I crave me some period goodness! Anyone watch Kim Suro and is it good? (Keeping in mind my adoration for period stuff and love of Ji Sung?)

MBC, if your idiotic refusal to pay wages which are indisputably owed results in Playful Kiss being affected via filming being stopped/scrapped due to the union strike, so help me, I am flying to Korea myself to yell at your idiot executives in person!

UGH.

A smaller ugh on behalf of Kim Suro, which I intended to watch once it was done. Nobody should mess with period dramas.

Paradoxically, I am not upset about Dong Yi, which actually stopped filming and has no eps to be aired Mon/Tues (!!!!!) because I never got into it and that way my new favorite Sungkyunkwan Scandal will have a heavyweight ratings competitor out of the way and will hopefully do better.

And somehow filming of Gloria resumed which makes me happy. Along with PK and Scandal, it's the only drama I am truly obsessed with this season (I do love Baker King and Giant but not to obsessive levels in general).

Btw, I know I am way behind on replies, I am sorry and promise to get to them soon.

Some pics of the upcoming sageuk Kim Soo Ro are out! (KSR is set in first-century AD and stars Ji Sung as the title character. EEE).

I really must finish my Swallow the Sun summary/write-up.

This is Seo Ji Hye, the female lead for the upcoming sageuk Kim So Roo. Her character is KSR's OTP/wife.

I am sitting here rolling my eyes a bit and very amused.

Why? Is it because I am not a SJH fan? No - I am not too familiar with her but I've liked her in what I've seen her in.

It's this little tidbit - apparently KSR's wife was from India.

SJH is a beautiful woman but she looks about as Indian as I do. LOL.

I suppose she could have been from Northeast India (I know little Korean history) in which case her looks would be more closely aligned to Korean looks.

For example, this is a recent Northeast Indian girl:



There's still a great deal of difference but at least it's (barely) plausible to have a Korean actress play her then.

So amused.

1. You guys, I just realized that somewhere in that really really long synopsis for Road Number 1, they promise me "passionate lovemaking" by the OTP when they hide in an abandoned building! With the hero on one-day military leave in the middle of war! While they are hiding from her former fiancee!

*is dead now*

2. I ship them already. Can Bad Guy be here sooner?



I plan to check out all three of the starting Wed/Thurs dramas, am enjoying Oh My Lady and want to watch Dong Yi and Birth of the Rich.

But nothing gets my excitement pumping the way the summer dramas do: Bad Guy, Road No. 1, Kim Soo Ro, (a period drama about a warrior city founder starring my total obsessive crush Ji Sung! And reuniting him with his Swallow the Sun costar Yoo Oh Sung who played Jackson in StS and became a big crush), What's Up (Im Ju Hwan!), Comrade (another Korean war drama), My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox (Hong Sisters and Lee Seung Gi = love).

Ahhhh.

For the record, we are only 3 months into 2010 and I have already loved the following dramas: Chuno, Pick the Stars, Oh My Lady, Will It Snow on Christmas, The Reputable Family and liked what I've seen of Jejjongwon and Pasta as well. Good year!
