The little sageuk that could readies itself for a finale on Monday in a balance scale of what was so wonderful and what could have been more. KBS drama The Tale of Nokdu has only one episode left, the final episode 16, airing this Monday due to a schedule disruption that upended the usual odd-even airing pairs. That made last week’s episode 15 ending on Tuesday really frustrating to watch because we have to wait a week but eh it could have been worse. The entire drama could have gone to the wolves the way the other two dramas I’m watching Extraordinary You and Vagabond did solely in the writing. But Nokdu the drama has remained as consistent as Nokdu the male lead, so certain of his beliefs in love, family, and what is right. I may love his character even more than I love Jang Dong Yoon’s performance, really it’s the melding of two amazing elements into something perfect. I hope Nokdu gets his happy ending because from the first episode til now he has always given it his all and never wavered from being himself. Such a great male lead and such a wonderful drama to watch.
