First Teaser for Blood is a Tall Drink of Twilight Homage Unintentional Hilarity

I haven’t been able to write anything substantive about the currently airing KBSΒ Mon-Tues drama Healer since I’m traveling. I’m not just watching it, I’m totally loving it! That means I’m even more reluctant for the drama to end and Blood to arrive, aside from finding everything about Blood’s casting to be cringeworthy. Male lead Ahn Jae Hyun looks like a convincing vampire but doesn’t have anywhere near a solid male lead’s charisma and acting chops. That he going to have to be convincing playing a vampire and a oncology doctor is doubly absurd.

The first teaser is out for Blood despite the drama not airing until February. It started filming weeks ago with the two leads being flown to Romania for overseas shoots. Gu Hye Sun, with her super pale complexion, would also be convincing as a vampire except she’s playing a human doctor albeit one with a Paris Hilton-esque attitude. The first teaser made me laugh and not in a good way, shooting Twilight posing vibes left and right without any real emotional heft. This one is looking more and more like a pass other than as a potential A Man Called God type of lulz-watch.

First Teaser for Blood is a Tall Drink of Twilight Homage Unintentional Hilarity — 46 Comments

  1. Hmmm yeah I’m not feeling the lead actor factor either but maybe its hard to judge from such a short clip… Also no way did the production crew not know how similar to Twilight it seems.

    Kind of glad Jaejoong didn’t take on this project now!

  2. What is this mess? I was hoping that like Kill Me Heal Me they will prove us wrong that it can be good but this is just laughable. Ahn Jae Hyun’s onscreen presence as a lead is zero in this teaser and the Twilight comparisons does not make it anybody.

  3. Yay,:) glad to know that your loving Healer Miss Koala, Happy New Year to you and your family. Have a great holiday, would love to hear your thoughts on the characters etc of Healer.

  4. OMG So GLAD you also love Healer! In my opinion its way better than Pinnocchio and way underrated.

    Park Min Young & Ji Chang Wook are nailing their characters and their chemistry is explosive.

    • I need to check out Healer, I’m only casually watching Valid Love which I’m really liking but have checked out on everything else.

      • Oh you really must check out Healer, it really is awesome, Episode 1 is intense but from then on it really is amazing, the OTP is smoking hot. all the characters are super. Need to spread the love of Healer around. πŸ™‚

    • Totally agree with you about Healer being better than Pinocchio! I mean, I think it’s a good drama or whatever, but Healer is so much more interesting and the chemistry is way better!

    • @mariechisoo Lol. ppl do love to compare their fav drama with pinocchio these days. Shows the popularity of the drama. I find pinocchio a tinch better bacause of the lightening speed of plot and amazing acting and the sizzling chemistry between otp. But i am also loving healer. Have watched till ep 5. not sold totally with park min young’s acting. But the character is likable. And ji chang wook is an amazing find. I am just hoping it would continue travelling smoothly till the end of drama. I love hacker ajhumma.

  5. ockoala and all the antis and haters here PLEASE just give GHS a break,why so mean to her..just wait for the drama to start first or rather i’d rather not you watch it..HAHAHA but i think you are interested in it too..why watched the teaser..GOSH if you love HEALER go go go just enjoy watching it and after that there are other dramas that you love..why are you so worried if you won’t like the story of BLOOD..for heaevens sake!

    • I like Gu Hye Sun too, especially after watching Angel Eyes, but why shouldn’t other people be allowed to express their misgivings about the drama, which are mostly directed at Ahn Jae Hyun. I didn’t have much of an impression of him at first, having dropped You’re All Surrounded. However, I went back to finish it, and totally understood why everyone else was concerned. After that performance, the incredulity that he got a lead role in a drama totally made this newsworthy.

    • For goodness’ sake, why get so butthurt over a personal opinion voiced on a PERSONAL blog? It is not a fansite, it is not an anti site, it is a place were ockoala shares her own thoughts on dramas and actors, whether it is positive or negative. Take your own advice, if you can’t handle the content of the blog then don’t come here, no one forces you to read.

      • yes i forced myself to come here because i know where your comments are going to,yeah i can’t handle your comments that is why i am forced to come here..and defend GHS

  6. Healer is my new obsession and looks like everyone on dramabeans site is on the same page as far as how hot the OTP is!

    • I know right? JCW and PMY are so freaking hawwwwwwwwwwt together. I just cant get enough of them. Have been replaying their scenes like a lunatic countless times already.

    • HAHAHA YEAH who knows maybe it is a remake of TWILIGHT lol..isn’t it so popular in korea nowadays reemake of taiwanese and japanese drama..why not TWILIGHT what an honor..

  7. I was going to ask you about Healer under a random post and I’m SO glad you’re loving it (everyone is slowly falling for his charms lol), as for me I just wanted to get the first two episodes, check it and trash it (I thought I wouldn’t like this ever) and now I’m charmed, it’s currently so perfect that I’m almost scared of said this aloud *whispers* please Healer stay perfect ;D

  8. Healer is amazing glad to read others like it also.. as for blood, that boy is sooo pretty id watch it just for him even if its horrible

  9. AJH seems promising. When I watched YFAS, his character immediately grabbed my attention. Lets give him the benefit of the doubt fellas. It’s gonna be interesting how they’re going to make their own version of twilight. πŸ™‚

      • I watched the raw for Fashion King and thought he was pretty good, especially when it came to smirking. xD He wasn’t as bad as some critics claim. After watching, I can totally see him as a cold-warm doctor. I don’t understand Korean tho, so this is a bad example. ._. At least his character’s demeanor came off pretty well for me. The problem with him in You’re All Surrounded was that his role (imo) was really shallowly made and so in group situations he did seem at a lost with how to stand out/react.

  10. Please write about Healer. I’d love too see your comments about this amazing and addictive drama. Totally fell for this drama!!

  11. The forest chase and the too-pale brooding hero is a dead ringer for Twilight, alright. Not sure if I dig that because OH BOY TWILIGHT. *cringes* Will give this a shot, though. Just to see if it can prove me wrong. Plus, I like GHS. <3

    And about Healer, omooo this show had me puking rainbows all over the place recently. Saying that I LOVE it would be an understatement. Glad that Ms. Koala is watching it too. Would it be too much to hope for a write-up or anything about Healer sometime soon in this site once you have the time? I would be so happy. πŸ™‚

  12. First, I don’t have high expectation of this drama but I am still going to watch it just because I love anything having to do with vampires no matter how cheesy it may be plus the fact I love looking at Ahn Jae Hyun despite his acting. I need to add at least one drama that makes no sense in watching for the year 2015
