Now that the January K-drama premieres are done it’s fully onwards to February and the splashiest (flashiest?) on the plate to be served is indisputably Blood. Will it be all style with no substance? Teasers and promos might look that way but there remains the possibility that the production of Good Doctor knows what it’s doing and picked the ideal leads in Ahn Jae Hyun, Gu Hye Sun, and Ji Jin Hee. I actually found the premise of Korean vampire doctors pretty absurd when it was first announced, while the casting has only magnified the first impression.
The drama released a two-fer this week, new stills showing the meeting of the romantic star-crossed human-vampire lovers at the hospital plus a new teaser that shows all three leads as well as sneak peeks at action scenes from the actual drama rather than just moody auteur character preening. I still can’t take it seriously when the teaser starts off with Ahn Jae Hyun licking blood and saying in his hilarious Kor-glish “I am a Pampire.” The OTP stills also scream unni-dongsaeng. The good stuff is hooking my curiosity to check out the drama for the backstory of where the vampires came from and what their dealio is.
