This drama can be summarized in one line: So many men, so little time. It’s the ultimate fangirl’s fantasy.
For starters, I didn’t know Reply 1994‘s Sam Cheon Po (Kim Sung Kyun) was in it. It was nice to see him.
I wasn’t planning to watch it because I have far too many dramas on my plate but I really like it. There appears to be a bit of humor along with time travel, which are two things I enjoy.
Unfortunately for me, this trailer makes me root for the cool 8th prince, Wang Wook (Kim Ha Neul) but it looks like she’s going to end up with the tortured 4th prince, Wang So (Lee Jun Ki). How do you start a drama knowing you’re on the losing team? 🙁 On the plus side, I sense good chemistry between Hae Soo and Wang So so perhaps I’d feel differently when I actually watch the drama.
There also appears to be a mystery because she needs to figure out which of the princes would be murdering his brothers. That’s going to be difficult especially as historical accounts aren’t always accurate. It should be fun.
Scarlet Heart: Ryeo premieres on SBS on August 29th.
