Review – Scholar Who Walks the Night
Supernatural historical dramas are some of my favorites. Even though I have yet to see one with a really solid plot, I always enjoy them. You would think that a drama about trying to overthrow an ancient vampire who lives in an underground lair beneath the royal palace and secretly controls the Joseon monarch would be fantastic. Eh.
Okay, maybe the plot was a little boring sometimes. I mean, how many secret diaries does it take to kill a vampire, am I right? But did that spoil my enjoyment of this show? Nope. Still loved it. Why? Cause vampires, that’s why! Who doesn’t love a good vampire story? Throw in a pretty girl disguised as a boy (love that trope!) and some romance and I’m hooked. Add an incredibly sexy evil vampire as the bad guy… and I’ll pop my popcorn and settle in for a long binge watch.
Overall Rating – 8/10. Dark Shadows of the Joseon Era.
