The first teaser trailer is out for Time Slip Dr. Jin. It’s too fast and short to get much out of it – a bit hokey, but not flat out dreadful (so far). I dunno what to think, I think it wants to be more Queen In Hyun’s Man but might end up more Rooftop Prince. I laughed so hard when Song Seung Heon‘s character is described as the best surgeon of the 21st century. LOL forever! Oh oppa, it would work better if you were called the smirkiest pretty man of the 21st century. I think this time-travel bit works so well for Song Seung Heon, since I’ve always doubted his ability to nail the sageuk line readings, but now he doesn’t need to because he’s a modern dude.
I’m not going to watch and compare to the original Jin at all, because this it will be a completely different set of historical events at play in the late Joseon dynasty as opposed to the Edo period. I’m loving Lee Bum Soo already, and Lee So Yeon is absolutely gorgeous as a gisaeng. However, Jaejoong is doing the stiff wide-eyed thing that gives me pause, so I’m hoping he relaxes his performance quickly. As for Park Min Young, it’s too early to tell, so I’ll reserve judgment until I see more of her.
