I haven’t been able to write anything substantive about the currently airing KBS 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.
