And I have my kdrama addiction for the spring season - it's the dark Royal Family, with its poisonous family and the central relationship between Ji Sung's star prosecutor and a woman who helped him once when he was an unwanted teenager and now it's his turn to help her.



I just finished the first ep and I love love love love it to bits. It's twisty and dark and keeps me on my toes and Ji Sung is amazing in it - by turns scary and vulnerable and even goofy, but always so intensely magnetic it almost makes me want to look away.

It's all the more interesting because I don't find myself interested much in the probably-coming romance between him and the heroine. The 11-yr difference doesn't bother me (though, due to the plot, the heroine looks very faded, much older than she's supposed to be) but the vibe I am getting so far is not romantic - just caring and loving like a family - younger brother-older sister perhaps. If the romance happens, I am sure I'll buy it when it does, but if not, I don't mind either.

I do love the interactions between all the characters and their connections. Just like Thorn Birds, this is somewhat of a melodrama, but it's a more cynical, harder-around-the-edges one.
