Master’s Sun Episode 1 Thoughts

I really like the set up for the lead female character, Tae Gong Sil.  She’s a tad whiny, but given the circumstances, I can see that happening.  It could get old quick, however.  I thought it was hysterical that her clothes made her look like she was wearing a hospital gown (think mental hospital patient).

The male lead so far is the typical jerk rich guy with a tortured past.  I am not a fan of So Ji Sub so it is hard for me to not feel like I want to punch this guy in the throat.  And I HATE that hair cut.  Who came up with this hair cut?  And how can we punish them?  Several Korean actors have sported it this year and it is AWFUL.  SJS’s version is extra annoying because it reeks of 1980’s hairsprayed until it will never ever move helmet hair.

Not much on the other characters yet.  The second lead female comes off as the typical bitchy girl though.

As I had expected, the Addams Family/Gothic feel posters and photos shoots really did not give off the real ambiance for the show.   It’s more grounded in a normal like modern world.   The ghosts, and the show itself,  are one part Ghostbusters, one part Harry Potter, and one part Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  Add in a dash of Tim Burton, and a dash of the Ghost Whisperer(just not as melo and crappy), and that makes up the 4th part.   If that makes any sense.   More campy and sad than creepy?

It was not cracktastic but I will go back for more.
