Watching 밤을 걷는 선비 with a friend

On Sunday I visited a friend, and we ended up watching the first episode of 밤 선비 together. We’ve known each other since our BSc days, but she also has a passion for writing fiction (she’s getting published soon!) so she’s used to looking at story lines in a slightly different way. Obviously we also share an interest in Asian cinema and TV so would there be a better thing to do than watch a drama episode after lunch/walk/talk/coffee? 

Her comments during the episode were hilarious, and I got some updates afterwards by text on how she progresses through the episodes that have aired so far. Her idea for a not-so-secret plan is to get 귀 out of his lair (which is a great word, by the way) and just force him into the sunlight – but obviously this would require way fewer episodes than scheduled by MBC, so we have decided to support the characters’ quest for the “secret plan” instead.

    Getting him in the sunlight would be brilliant. Unfortunately, this is a K-drama we’re talking about. That means complicated schemes, stupid mistakes, and drawn-out drama. They’d never dare to try anything so simple.

    That would be basically three episodes: episode 1 where one vampire admits to being incompetent and then passes on the job by biting 성열, one filler episode with the two leads running from 귀 plus mandatory waterfall fan service, and one where they realise they could make windows in 귀’s cave and throw him a refurbishment celebration garden party during the day. The “secret plan” version is probably better for ratings 😀

      Haha… I literally laughed out loud at the “refurbishment celebration garden party”. Yes, that version, though more realistic (well, as much as a vampire drama can be realistic…), probably wouldn’t have great viewer response.
