Lately I have not been consistent with my viewing when it comes to Kdramas.I took a break from sageuks,as soon as Shine or Go Crazy and Maids came to and end but I am back now so let us get back into all things Sageuk and maybe one not so sageuk mention along the way.
Another reason I took a detour from sageuks was this lovely modern Kdrama titled Heard It Through The Grapevine. I rarely seek out modern Kdramas but this show has been exceptional.The story-line is amazing and well thought out and each actor suits their role perfectly.This drama is a must watch for any real Kdrama addict
There are two sageuks that I intend to get down and watch with commitment once HTTG has concluded, these are Hwajung and Jingbirok. However I cannot say that I enjoy watching King Gwanghaegun being painted as a villain.He is one of my favourite Joseon era kings,I admire the way he stayed and fought for his people when he could have just fled the capital with his father. Jingbirok is less fast paced than Hwajung but I do enjoy the historical narrative,which I understand is historically accurate.
