Soon to Watch: Hwayugi/A Korean Odyssey

Soon to Watch: Hwayugi/A Korean Odyssey

As a fan of many of the Hong Sisters dramas, it comes to no surprise my excitement or motive to watch this new fantasy based Kdrama. And last month’s announcement of the final cast and more or less what the drama would be about, just helped build up my anticipation for it. Specifically the fact that the drama would be somewhat of a reinterpretation of “Journey to the West”. A novel I enjoyed watching movies about when I was a kid.

Also, I can’t be the only one else excited to hear about Lee Seung Gi and Cha Seung Won’s casting for the drama. Especially after watching them act together in “You’re All Surrounded”. Which I have to say I really enjoyed. Not to mention, HongKi (FT Island) is also starring in this drama. I haven’t seen any drama of his since Modern Farmer. Wow. It’s been a while.

For all those interested or curious about the drama, here are some facts about it

It’s been a while since I’ve watched a fantasy drama, and I’m really looking forward to all the crazy effects and story elements that come with the genre. Not to mention, I want to see how the Hong Sister have grown as writers. What will the modern twist to a classic novel look like? Is the drama going to be a hit or miss? Hopefully, it’ll be something we can all enjoy.

Is there anyone else excited to watch this drama? Is anyone a fan of the Hong Sisters? Let me know in the comments below.
