Hwang Jin Yi, 2006 Drama + 2007 Movie

After The Painter of the Wind, 2008, Hwang Jin Yi, 2006 was my second Korean drama with “element of art”. Korea TV industry has lots of experience in this kind of drama. The script and way of filming are interesting, using a lot time to show people’s sympathetic response to art.

^ This is from the movie Hwang Jin Yi. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA~~~ Can’t help laughing!!

The Painter of the Wind, 2008

This is the first Korean drama that I like, though Korean dramas are popular around world. I haven’t watched a lot Korean period dramas, but from those I’ve watched, I can tell that the plot will be no more than “you love me but I love him”, “you loved my mother but she loved his father” and “all princes want to be king”. =.,=
