The emotional swings of this drama (and I mean that in a good way) continue to bring the feels for me, and the actors get a chance to showcase their many talents. And yet we still don’t have a shower scene…
Now that somethings are revealed (and that can be understood on multiple levels), we’re ready to move on to the next level in this story.
And, may I have a drunk goblin of my very own, please?
Certainly with a major commercial actor like Gong Yoo in the production (not to mention A-lister beauty like Yoo Inna), there was never going to be any surprise in wardrobe creativity for this production, but I really enjoyed the wardrobe choice when the Reaper and the Goblin st/rode to Eun-tak’s defense!
Seriously, the rapport between Gong Yoo and Lee Dong-work is off the charts! I had seen a number of references to it in the blogo/twitterspheres, but having avoided the temptation of watching the clips proving it – an almighty labor on my part, panting as I was to see more Gong Yoo 😉 – I did not know just how good those two would be playing off each other.
Now this is more like it!
TvN is spending their money wisely; talented actors, beautiful scenarios and production work, and an interesting story. One episode in and I feel much more invested in the story than I did with Legend of the Blue Sea, and I think it’s because they’ve taken the trouble to make us care about the leads as people and to hold back on any sort of attraction between them.
It’s got to be Gong Yoo. I’ve been salivating at the prospect of a series full of him, much more than I was with Lee Minho. He will be mine, starting maybe tonight, but no later than this weekend!
And I will say that the Yang Mi/Mark Chao drama “Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms” is getting really favorable/swoony comments on some of the recap sites. (Not that I’m looking <cough>).
