Now just 10 days to go (yes, I’m counting) the enthusiasm is kicking into overdrive. With a drama that’s promising to thrill, enchant and amaze, there’s bound to be something for everyone. Even if vampires aren’t really your thing, “Scholar Who Walks the Night” is worth a look-in. Here’s why.
It took some time, but the drama finally assembled its vibrant cast of established as well as up-and-coming actors. Lee Joon Gi leads the pack and his acting is always top notch. His leading lady is Lee Yoo Bi as Jo Yang Sun and she’s been with the best. Her past costars most recently include Kim Woo Bin (in movie “Twenty”) and Park Shin Hye in both The Royal Tailor and Pinocchio.
Action-packed scenes galore
Expect some awesome sword play, martial arts and eloquent action filming by the director who’s worked on both Moon Embracing the Sun and Empress Ki. The horror aspects of the biting, glowing red eyes and fangs will not downplay the high grade entertainment of a well shot historical drama.
Vampires need love too
This drama is also billed as a romance so there’ll be one or two pairings to look forward to. Thankfully our hero seeks to do what’s right in spite of his vampire traits – so we’ll have no problem rooting for him to get the girl.
