I’m still interested in IRIS 2 because of the cast and the entire production history. Despite not feeling the love or IRIS, it was indeed an impressive production and the cast had great chemistry. It was the twists and turns and made it too convoluted for me, and without much logical foundation. To date the cast of Athena: Goddess of War is one of my most favorite casts ever assembled but sadly that inversely meant they got the stupidest story on the planet. In episode 2 when Jung Woo Sung and Su Ae was in Italy and had that 30 minute kick ass action sequence, only to have it turn out to be a dream, I almost spit up blood and started hurling invectives at the screen. Is it really that hard to write an action drama? Perhaps in the K-drama world it’s hard because of the need to also throw in a K-drama type of love story as well as some sad sack backstory for the characters. That just weighs down the action and creates baggage for the characters to lug around when really we just want them to blow things up and then kiss prettily against a glorious backdrop. Here’s to hoping we get lots of that in IRIS 2. The cast finished up filming in Prague and has moved to Cambodia now. In between they were back in Korea and attended a movie premiere to support their fellow IRIS 2 cast member Yoon Doo Joon. They look like they’ve really bonding having filmed abroad and that bodes really well for onscreen chemistry. Everyone looks great but I don’t know why Lee Bum Soo is wearing a blanket as a coat. He’s not exactly the tallest actor around, though his onscreen presence PWNS guys a foot taller who can’t act, but he needs to wear clothes that are cut better for his body type. I still want Jang Hyuk to grow out his hair, maybe his character will get abducted by bad guys for a few months to grow out his hair. The drama also revealed its first official poster and its decently arranged to artfully present its sprawling cast.
