Raise your hand if the fantasy of Lee Min Ho wearing all-black armor showing up in front of you and carting you off like a sack of potatoes strikes your fancy? If you answered yes, then I suspect Faith will be right up your alley. I think SBS has a good chance of maintaining its Mon-Tues dominance once Faith premieres after the Olympic hiatus, since the last time-traveling drama was the cult-favorite cable hit Queen In Hyun’s Man which came complete with its own behind-the-scenes Page One worthy costar love story. The fourth teaser has just been released and continues to showcase some truly eye catching cinematography and promises narrative intensity up the wazoo with sword fights, angry Lee Min Ho, nobles plotting, and Kim Hee Sun looking suitably stunned and angsty. I really like the costume design for this drama, even if I totally know it’s not even one bit historically accurate. I wonder if this drama will have the time traveling general toggling between his present and the future, much like a QIHM set up, or travel there once to nab himself a plastic surgeon and then stay put for the remainder of the drama, sorta like a Dr. Jin scenario. Too bad it doesn’t look like the Lee Min Ho will don modern garb when he heads to the 21st century. It would be hilarious to see a Goryeo general try on Lee Min Ho’s trademark short pastel-colored pants with sockless loafers look.
