Feel free to have your own opinions regarding upcoming vampire sageuk Scholar Who Walks the Night as its certainly been one of the most eventful K-drama productions this year. I find the not too serious and a tad over-the-top style charmingly cheesy rather than annoyingly florid. It’s got just enough dramatic flair in all the teaser materials befitting the whole vampire theme without (yet) toppling over into complete ridiculousness. On the heels of the official character stills and the second video teaser, the production released the drama posters to the public with a flourish.
The four drama posters run the gamut from been there done that, the one with the entire cast arrayed around a room in character, to been there but woah am I loving it when it comes to the captivating OTP poster. The way Lee Jun Ki stares at Lee Yoo Bi in the poster above is something he does marvelously with all his leading ladies, but it’s the way Lee Yoo Bi stares back at me that really sells her casting. She doesn’t look the least bit too young for him or unable to match his intensity, she actually soaks up his energy and gives it right back. I wish the background wasn’t the dull blue-grey night atmosphere but that’s basically a given what with the vampires who walk the night theme.
