Guess which first episode I just watched and liked? Here is a hint:

I genuinely enjoyed the first episode of Dr. Jin, thus (if the blogs are anything to go by) placing me in a solid minority of one. But I very much enjoyed it and I stand by my opinion.

This is not drama-as-art the way the Japanese JIN (at least first season, I never did watch the sequel) was. And this is undoubtedly cheesy. But it is also entertaining and, let's face it, I think at least 80% of dramas are made of enough cheese to double as a dairy farm in Wisconsin. (Frex - King 2 Heart and Rooftop Prince, very entertaining, pure cheese).

Part of my fondness is that fusion sageuks are my favorite genre and time-travel my favorite device. Part of it is my enormous fondness for Song Seung Heon, Park Min Young (who has gorgeous chemistry with SSH), Lee Bum Soo (who is stealing the show), Jaejoong et. al. But a lot of it is that it's just cheesy yummy fun. If I want a fusion sageuk I consider genuine quality, this will never be it (that crown would probably go to Chuno) but as far as a great way to spend a couple of hours - oh yes, sign me up right here!

In conclusion - I was very pleased to note that Edward Cullen is alive and well in Joseon Korea:

Here he is, minutes before his even eviller Daddy randomly shoots a horse. Just because. Evil.

I'll probably check it out, if only because I find Park Min Young very likable.

It's silly and unabashedly so, but it's also a lot of fun.

omg jaejoong is edward cullen *dies laughing* the whole world makes sense now. obv to his fangirls he does sparkle in the day. also he has a creepy stare. he will watch you sleep, and his fangirls will watch him sleep (its funny or rather it's NOT funny because they do watch him sleep *shudder*)

fangirls break into his house and watch him sleep, try to touch him, try to take pics etc. its happened on a few occasions. they also harass his (and other dbsk members) family. one time changmin (someone he sings with or used to anyway) got hit with rocks by a fangirl and he fell down and cried. jaejoong also got in trouble recently when he flipped out on a fangirl and started cussing her out and smacking her head. he was ranting about how he is stalked and videotaped everywhere he goes like a criminal and he cant live like a human etc etc things of that nature. apparently at one point he found out he was adopted and no one told him and it became a big public thing because his birth "parents" wanted a relationship with him now, tho its obv they just want fame and money. dude apparently drinks like way too much too, his life a soap opera basically. its kind of sad tbh.

The guy in the last pic gives some really good smoulder. Who does he play and does he show up enough times that I can spend most of this series ogling him?
