Hymn of Death – Series

Don’t ask me why but I watched this last week. It was only three episodes which is probably why I considered it. Normally I would never watch a drama where I know the ending. My spoiler phobia won’t let me — 😆 — and I think everyone knows the ending and just in case, the title speaks for itself.

In spite of that I found myself clicking the play button. I don’t regret it at all. I thought that the leads had really nice chemistry. The clothing was amazing. The beginning even had moments of lightness which I wasn’t expecting but all that doesn’t impact on that feeling of doom that we can’t avoid.

I don’t know how much this story really reflects the true story of the real people but I think it was a really good production – very well done and our hero still has one of the sweetest smiles around!! I seem to be on a roll lately regarding the harshness of Japanese rule in Korea… hmmm…

Netflix Tunes up Korean Series ‘Hymn of Death’ – Variety

Shin Hye-sun has been picking her roles well lately, making sure there is plenty of diversity in her characters’ types, so I’ve got my fingers crossed that she’s still on track. Lee Jong-suk as her male protagonist might just work out, though lots will depend on the plot and direction, as always.
