Very good drama. Park Soo Ae and Joo Ji Hoon made one of the most appealing couples in a long time - very good chemistry. Worth watching.
I think I'm just burned out on vampires. I like this well enough through the Joseon segment, but the third part was just boring. If the point of this was to demonstrate tolerance, a much more meaningful drama could have been written about any of the groups in Korea that are discriminated against (there's no shortage, ranging from the GLBT people through people who are simply fat). Instead we got a so-so teen drama without much point. Sorry, not a fan of this one. Three stars because while it's not great, it's not offensive,
This movie is an almost scene-for scene remake of the American movie Overboard, starring Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell (her real-life-husband). It's a delightful movie and this adaptation isn't an improvement. Han Ye Seul does an admirable job with the Goldie Hawn role although she’s never quite as offhandedly arch as Hawn and comes across meaner - probably because of the gratuitous violence scenes at the beginning (that's not in the original). Oh Ji Ho, nice as he is to look at, never seems to bring any real weight to his roles. Whenever I see him as a leading man, I find myself thinking about how great this part would have been with Jang Hyuk doing it - and this is no exception. Kim Kwang Hyu is ok, but he doesn't bring any of the delightful snideness to the role that Roddy McDowell did. I don't think I'll finish this - I'd rather track down Overboard and watch it again. You should, too.
