You have probably heard that new series Scholar Who Walks the Night is a vampire drama, but you'd be surprised at how well it has created romantic moments between Lee Joon Ki and Lee Yoo Bi. Their first encounter was hilarious, but when they met the second time, it was a thrilling and captivating experience for them and for the audience. Take a look at these 3 special video clips. (Warning: heart-fluttering spoilers)

Yang Sun (Lee Yoo Bi) is a cheerful girl who cross-dresses as a bookseller to earn money to support her once-wealthy family down on the luck. She visits a gisaeng house to meet a mysterious scholar (played by Lee Joon Ki) to hopefully drum up some business .

Video #1 - Yang Sun meets Sung Yeol for the first time. Lee Joon Ki's expression is priceless.when she chases her wayward chipmunk right into his lap.

Later, to avoid being captured, Yang Sun runs into Sung Yeol's room. She has heard the guards shouting they would leave females alone, so she decides to change her clothes. Of course, she doesn't know Sung Yeol is in the room too.

Video #2 - While Yang Sun disrobes to change into a woman's attire, she doesn't realize Sung Yeol is looking at her. He's quiet as a cat but his gaze is very disquieting:


The beautiful music is a perfect complement to the tension in the air. I love the moment when he takes off her topknot and releases her flowing long hair. Yang Sun asks Sung Yeol to help her, but it's going to cost her. What's the favor he'll ask?

Video #3 - Sung Yeol decides to help Yang Sun to avoid capture by pretending to be in bed with her when the guards rush in. Their heart-fluttering moment leading up to the guards' entry would later be recalled by Yang Sun in vivid detail as she looks at her reflection in the clear river water:


She's upset when she recalls that tantalizing encounter, but I think the audience wouldn't mind seeing her and Sung Yeol together again and more.

I mentioned in my latest Weekly Top 10 column that this drama has surprisingly included these very fascinating and even sensual moments despite the gore in this intriguing thriller. The vampire genre is not my usual favorite, but I did enjoy Gu Hye Sun's Blood and Jung Ill Woo's The Night Watchman's Journal. It's time for me to start a new historical costume drama and I also like Lee Joon Ki a lot, so The Scholar Who Walks the Night is a keeper.

Besides, the chemistry between Lee Joon Ki and Lee Yoo Bi threatens to start an instant blaze around them.

How about you? What do you think about these videos? Are you watching The Scholar Who Walks the Night?
