There's always a slump when dramas like Faith and Arang end (sure, there's Nice Guy, and I've watched the first 6 episodes and loved it ... but I am still very reluctant to be fully enraptured by this drama and its characters, as I know I would be if I continued ... ah, why is this so complicated ... and there is Vampire Prosecutor, which is super awesome, but will end soon, too *sobsamilliontears*), so I have decided to be very excited about two upcoming dramas (I am not excited about I Miss You, which starts airing tomorrow, simply because I can't take all the tears):
No 1: Jeonwoochi
The official plot description reads as follows: "In the fictional idealist nation of Yuldo, established by the righteous bandit hero Hong Gil-dong, Jeon Woo-chi is a dosa, a Taoist wizard, who gained his powers by swallowing a gumiho fox bead. A friend's betrayal causes him to lose his mentor and father-figure Hong Gil-dong, and the love of his life. So in order to avenge their deaths, he travels to Joseon, and is moved by the plight of the people and becomes a reluctant hero to them".
So far so good. It stars Cha Tae-hyun (whom I didn't particularly love in My Sassy Girl, but I'm ready to give him another chance as I hear that he is funny) as a whimsical, impish wizard who becomes an unlikely hero; and Uee, who was quite good in You're Beautiful, as a princess who falls prey to dark Taoist magic; the sorcery makes her lose her emotions, and she commits a violent murder. Oups, that doesn't sound all too funny. This is supposed to be a comedy, right?
I'm a bit more excited for the supporting cast, which includes Seong Dong-il (always funny, liked him particularly in Fugitive, Plan B), Lee Hee-joon (whom I've only seen and liked in Wild Romance) and Hong Jong-hyeon, who looks so stern in Warrior Baek Dong Soo. And then, there's the teaser ... haha, hilarious. Flying warriors? I'm in.
