I know I’m not the only one who has been fairly (or completely) skeptical of the K-drama of beloved Chinese drama Bu Bu Jing Xi adapted from novelist Tong Hua‘s Startling with Every Step. But with every released tidbit, I’ve calmed ever so slightly and today, China has released its first teaser and I have to be honest, I’m more than ready now for this to air and do well!
Check out Bobogyungsim: Ryeo teaser!
I was already taken with Lee Jun-ki from the costume shots a couple weeks back but after seeing him in action, he certainly brings something to his Fourth Prince that carries the same mystery we all know and love in a way that feels dangerous, intriguing and tantalizing. And while, I have always liked Lee, this is the first time, I’ve been this interested in seeing his portrayal/depiction of a character.
But as for the sneak peek, I truly like it. For not only is it sweeping and beautiful, it also comes across warm and fun. All the princes that should be lovable and adorable come across as such and the dynamic of youngsters growing and changing together is apparent as well. However, most importantly it has a charm all its own, making it a completely different beast from the original and with that alone, I breathe a sigh of relief.
