Normally I hate to post stuff that isn’t top-notch, as high quality as possible for your enjoyment. But sometimes something comes along that simply needs to be shared. Much as I have many dramas I am enjoying right now, chiefly Giant and Playful Kiss, it’s all sorta filler material in my wait for Athena: Goddess of War (and Secret Garden).
Dangermousie posted a longer trailer for Athena, which appears to be shot by a fan camera during a public airing of the trailer, likely at a media event or some such. The quality is actually not bad – it’s not jumpy, jittery, and low on ambient noise. It’s double the length of the first teaser trailer, and includes some boink boink action between Lee Ji Ah and Cha Seung Won (I totally didn’t expect that, since I saw an earlier still of Jung Woo Sung with his arms around Lee Ji Ah).
Long trailer for Athena:
If Athena doesn’t make me its slave, then I clearly have no appreciation for popcorn entertainment. And me loves some great crunchy, salty, and savory popcorn. Bring on the side of Coke, guys! I’m not expecting Masterpiece Theatre or even 24-esque production values. Just give me the K-drama angst and them some series eye-candy and I am completely satisfied with the end product.
