[Calling all Go Soo and Han Ye-seul fans! No, wait, correction. Calling all Kim Soo-hyun fans! You won’t want to miss a new guest review by Supah where she sings the praises of your young and extremely hot idol. No, the review’s not of his recent drama about an arts high school but of the 2009 drama that made people sit up and take notice of him. Supah previously reviewed, with much loving attention, the 2010 epic outing with the one-word title, Giant, for Thundie’s Prattle. Hmm, Kim Soo-hyun also acted in Giant. I think I see a pattern here, Supah. Keke. Thanks for the review! –thundie]
The Pendant That Fell In The River
Let’s start this review off with a bold proclamation. After watching the first 24 episodes, I am unequivocally in love with Giant. With that said, I shall attempt to justify my sentiment with a semblance of reason and logic (but if you look at that kiss above, I think it says enough by itself).
With its ratings surging past 20%, industry talk is that Queen Seondeok (2009) could become a major hit. And why not? It’s extremely well made and barrels of fun. The fourth episode, which aired this week, ended on a cliffhanger and I’ve been antsy ever since. Is it Monday yet?
While waiting for this week to quickly pass us by, allow me to share the reasons why this sageuk (period drama) has held me spellbound.
