This week new K-dramas are piling on like zombies spotting a live human but after we get out from under the backlog there are still more premieres to come in early March. One that I am super looking forward to is Joseon Exorcist with Kam Woo Sung and Jang Dong Yoon, which everyone agrees is just the next chapter of what K-movie Rampant (Outbreak) and Netflix drama Kingdom (both seasons) have already covered, namely what would happen if there was a zombie outbreak in Joseon era. The answer is always – the peasants all get infected and turn, evil politicians try to use the zombies for their own means, and the heroes magically survive zombie attack time and again and then manage to find a cure or at least a stop gap measure. It’s not rocket science but I still enjoyed the two projects above and think there runway for Joseon Exorcist to do its own take. It looks way crazier than Kingdom based on the trailer and I’m curious how the virus spreads and what the attack plan is to contain it.
