I totally did not expect Entertainer to unveil its first teaser today (or technically yesterday) but they did, and guess who is a happy fangirl now? We get a sneak peek of the leads and they were…dancing their hearts out in the teaser. Yes, you read that right. Ji Sung and Hyeri, battling it out on their own dance floor that is the convenience store. Looks like our Manager Shin is scouting his band of entertainers while showing off his own talents.
Four episodes into Yongpal and I really love it! It delivers in the tone, story, directing and acting- if you are thinking over whether to watch it I would strongly recommend the drama. Medical dramas may not be a popular choice among viewers, but Yongpal manages to weave in an impressive concoction touching on different areas in a medical context: the power struggle, class divide and underworld coupled with lots of action. Just like the premise, the show hints at darkness and we know that there is more to the plot than meets the eye. And you really don’t have to be a fan of the medical genre to watch it; there are great visuals, interesting characters and thrilling moments which you should see for yourself to feel that adrenaline rush 😉
With a week left before Yongpal’s premiere after Mask, SBS has released promotional material featuring the two leads, Joo Won & Kim Tae Hee. I’m so excited to see Joo Won again since the last drama of his I watched was Good Doctor. In Yongpal, he stars as a doctor Kim Tae Hyun who treats patients illegally in secret. And the reason for that is: his “clients” are usually the uber rich who are unable to seek medical treatment through the proper system due to their shady dealings which most likely are clashes with the law. Like all surgeon heroes, he is talented but what sets him apart is his willingness to treat anyone as long as they have the ability to pay. In this position, he is made aware of some scandalous happenings at the chaebol households. Wow. I’m intrigued. [Updated]
