Verdicts are flying left and right for the sleuth of new airing dramas… and I just have to make a quick post to defend Faith. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s really not that bad. Ok, so I was totally transported back to the 90s with those CG TVB used to use. And the Goryeo lingo was also v. v. suspiciously modern sounding to my untrained ears. But I hafta say I was pretty entertained. Two eps in and LMH’s already on a fast track of showing us his abs… even if through bloody surgery ;D
Lady surgeon is also not really ditzy? I dunno how this accusation came about, but she’s not clueless or naive. The only thing I’ve seen KHS in was Tomato where she was a boring doormat. Here in Faith she surprised me by being animated and chatty. That sequence with the fortune teller cracks me up. Her various expressions were so unexpectedly winning. Enough to have a personality and not too much to be OTT.
King annoys me. As does his advisor. Queen gets triple awesome points. Will watch this as a fantasy. I think it works better that way. Thinking of it as anything historical might just aggravate some 😀
