Happy Tuesday everyone! A new drama review this week!
All thanks to one of the members in Soompi, I am currently hooked onto ‘Gu Family Book’!
From the poster, you could easily conclude that this is another saeguk (Historical drama) production by MBC. I was never a fan of saeguk.. And never will be. But I’ll make exception for this! I had only watch 2 saeguks (including this) so far and strangely, they were all produced by MBC! Gosh! I must say that MBC is really good at producing saeguks!
Reason why I hate saeguks? Cliche love story filled with terrible played politics which separates the childhood playmates and not forgetting, lots of innocent killing and zero justice… not until the finale at least.
And sadly, Gu Family book has fulfill all the requirements above. The storyline goes:
1. Kang Chi (Lee Seung-Gi) is in love with his childhood playmate, Chung Jo (Lee Yoo Bi), whom is also his sister. No blood relations thou since Kang Chi was abandon by his parents and raised by Lord Park (Uhm Hyo Sup)
2. One day, Yeo Wool (Bae Suzy) met Kang Chi and realized that she had a crush on him since she was a kid!
3. Innocent people were framed by the greedy, sick and evil Jo Kwan Woong (Lee Sung Jae).
4. And this results in the good dying, the evil laughing and the alive wanting to take revenge.
Pretty much no difference from the typical saeguks right? However, there’s a catch to this saeguk which made me love it so much! Are you ready for it??
Doing it the Kang Chi style :)
Kang Chi is not a human!! To be precise, he is a half human + half mystical creature! :O How interesting. And it’s even more interesting to see how he battles with himself and try to return back as a full human. And of course, it’s not just about that. There were also many parts where the evil Jo decided to screw up the innocent’s life and it makes me go stomping around the room thinking WAEEEE??? But at the end of the day, Kang Chi always saves the day!!
However, how long will this last? Will Kang Chi continues to do what he’s good at? Or will his plans get destroyed by the evil Jo? I can only keep my eyes peeled every Monday and Tuesday night to find out since they are only at their 12th episode today!
And a random thought! I have a feeling that Lee Seung Gi will be back in Singapore real soon to promote ‘Gu Family Book’. I really hope that happens since I missed him last August due to Freshman bash!
I will leave you off with the OST from Gu Family Book. It’s sang by Lee Sang Gon (Noel) and it’s called ‘Love Hurts’. Do check out other music by Noel if you haven’t! Their husky voices are absolutely amazing!
No idea how this sad song will brighten up your Tuesday but ENJOY! :)
