Heard It Through the Grapevine

First Impression: Heard It Through the Grapevine

My, my… lookee here. It’s a new production from the duo who brought ground-breaking drama Secret Love Affair to epic proportions in the early part of 2014. Time lapse of one year and what do they have up their sleeves?

Another strong contender to push KDrama boundaries into the next realm 😮

The plot itself touches on a rather taboo subject of teenage pregnancy. Add in a micro-managing Super rich family and street-smart characters, I can’t help but be intrigued with Ahn Pan Suk’s decision to helm this 32-episode drama (yep, 32 o_O )

When one hears Ahn Pan Suk’s name, one automatically links that with breathtaking cinematography and a coterie of ensemble actors who most often are hired in his projects. I couldn’t help but grin when I saw familiar faces in the first two episodes.

However, when cameras entered the home of the powerful Han family, I was, in a word, gobsmacked. The uniquely Korean architecture is seamlessly woven into a modern domicile and needless to say, yours truly had to pause several times just to soak in the glorious sight.

Lee Joon and Go Ah Sung. MAN! Ahn PD must have some kind of Jedi force because their acting has improved by leaps and bounds! I am cautiously hopeful for an interesting ride come episode 3.

Finally! A KDrama that has tractor-beam grabbage of a Death Star…
