The K-drama world of Bu Bu Jing Xin (Bobogyungsim: Ryeo) took a big step forward this week with the Chinese released the first poster and video teaser for the drama. It looks good, people, legit does not look like a hot mess off the bat. The Korean version of the many princes are all shining in their own way and doesn’t bring back any similarities or references to their C-drama counterparts, which is a major relief in both narrative freshness and not trying to copy something that is hard to pull off.
Lee Jun Ki does the eye patch dangerous hottie in black look perfectly, in fact he could be the time traveling rock star from the present gone back to be a Goryeo prince, lol. Kang Ha Neul doesn’t grab me as much as 8, but Baekhyun is harmless as 10, while I’m super adoring Nam Joo Hyuk‘s 13 and Ji Soo‘s 14 already. IU is the one who looks and feels very much like Liu Shi Shi‘s take on the leading lady, all perky girl-next-door. The drama looks to be done with filming now and headed into post-production for a simultaneous airing in Korea and Chinese this fall.
