A funny thing happened on my way to getting back to the sweet and tender (and funny) “I’m Not A Robot” – I clicked on Netflix first to bookmark a new show and saw “Black” in my queue and called an audible. I was just in the mood for something a little less emotionally connected, if you know what I mean, and a dose of PRETTY, aka Song Seung-heon. He’s playing a man whose body is inhabited by a grim reaper who needs to find someone and let’s just say that the reaper is not really socialized with humans 😉
Go Ara is the young woman who can see the shadows of death when they approach people, and when she touches them she has the ability to see how they’ll die – so yeah, based on a true story.
It’s more action-oriented, with lots of pretty reaction shots (and he looks Fine with a capital F dressed all in black). I’ve got the final 5 episodes left to go (of 18) and while it’s no year’s best contender, it has been pretty entertaining so far. Here’s a clip, no subs so it avoids spoilers unless you’ve upped your Korean language skills game (heh heh).
