[Orion's Daily Ramblings] The Battle Begins in New "A Korean Odyssey" Teasers


Get ready for superpowers, expensive fashion and fancy settings, because "A Korean Odyssey" is all about style in its brand new teasers. Lee Seung-gi is literally hot, Cha Seung-won is channeling the snazziest of demons and Oh Yeon-seo is going to Mary Poppins the heck out of some monster-folk.

It's good to see some of the potential manifestations of the characters' otherworldly attributes and it looks like our heroine has a few tricks up her sleeve, or rather umbrella. The cheesy screams by our two leading men do kind of yank me out of the cool setting, but between this and the googly-eyed enemies that look like they came straight out of an anime, I'm guessing the whole thing is supposed to look cartoonish.

We haven't gotten to the point of seeing actual scenes from the drama yet, so these teasers may just be proof of concept and I imagine a lot will be changing anyway. I still hope the series does not take itself too seriously, because the Hongs are fun when they have fun and that may be all it takes for this to be enjoyable.
