Gu Family Book is a sageuk, and rather a very fusion one, since it mixes few species as well. We have gumiho, humans and carps as well. I’ve said this few times already and I will repeat: I’m not fond of Lee Seung-gi (euphemistically speaking actually), referred as The Carp (watch 5 minutes of his any appearance and you’ll get why), he may be the nicest guy in da ‘hood, but I don’t care.
Creators of this drama played us all for the fools, placing Choi Jinhyeok on the poster in an awesome attire (see for yourself), making all ladies around swoon and open their… hearts and… and getting rid of him quickly. I protest, we protest! We want hot gumiho daddy back or else we will riot!
Anyway, we have The Carp and Carpette as main leads so I’ll probably rely on recaps to know if maybe our awesome supernatural daddy appears again so I can grab the episode. The background though is composed of stellar cast, having Kim Hee Won as the monk and our (did I mention hot?) Wol-ryeong’s friend, Jo Seongha, Lee Seongjae etc.
Having an awesome daddy there is no guarantee the kid won’t look like a Carp… But writers should at least take some remote similarity between actors, OK? Since Korea boasts the country’s competitiveness in CGI, there’s my proposition (in case Carp will need a daddy in the future drama):
Now fangirls may bury me alive.
Decided to remain faithful to When A (beautiful) Man Shows His Abs and currently preparing to watch episode 3 with also faithful friends. I won’t lie that abs are one important plot aspect that drives us in. Maknae and his brother as well.
And since I’m cured from my irrational fear of V-Ness, I decided to watch Autumn’s Concerto and damn I love it. Of course there are convoluted methods of dealing with people displayed by you-can-count-on evil Momma, but in overall – since Mars probably, I haven’t felt that emotionally invested (maybe King Flower works its magic for me this way too, cause it’s subtly layered as well).
I like the leading lady too, she’s a mild and gentle girl, yet she’s not a doormat.
Don’t let this pic fool you. It’s nothing as happy as it seems to be.
