Initial Impressions: The LOL’s are real with this one. I hadn’t planned to watch this but I was having Running Man withdrawals and while scrolling through Netflix I happened to see Lee Kwang-soo smiling face and one thing click lead to another and now I’ve just finished Episode 8 😂😂
BUT FIRSTLY – We interupt this regularly scheduled program to do some Online googling on the Hwarang! 😱😱😱😱 Daaaaang these historical flower warriors existed for real, for real *faints*
Small-kine gripe… Go A-ra (again), to be honest – if I dont like a certain actor from a previous K-drama (purely based on my view of their acting of course), I usually avoid other dramas with them in it, but like I said, I wasnt looking to start this drama, it just kinda happened 😜😂 – ANYWAY… when Go A-ra cried for the first time, I was immediately transported back to Black and wouldnt you know it – instantly annoyed lol BUT I wasn’t nearly as frustrated with her this time round, maybe the comedic relief provided by the other cast helped but I’m happy to report no additional hair-loss. As you were Go A-ra씨 😉
The biggest question right now for me is – WHO ARE YOU Dog-Bird?
Needless to say I am thoroughly enjoying this drama; the comedy is on point, the interactions between the characters, BEST. SUPPORTING. ACTORS. EVER, story-line truly historical worthy – I mean the Queen’s actions could flip either way, she’s either really doing this to protect her son or she really is cray-cray and needs to be de-throned in the most dramatic way Ever! Lol And of course, who exactly is Dog-Bird?
Let the drama continue…
