Does this name sounds very familiar? Yes, is a drama series that reinterprets from a classic Chinese novel, “Journey to the West”. But, this drama is set in present day which can really attracts audience’s attention eventhough a few drama series based on this novel had been released since long ago.
Just a fast glance through about this drama. So, in this present day, Son Oh Gong and Ma Wang are in conflict with each other. Both looking for a true light in a dark world where evils exist everywhere. Seon Mi is entitled to seek for help from Son Oh Gong in exchange of setting him free 25 years ago. Aha! Romance fantasy drama <3
Moreover, this is the first acting role for Lee Seung Gi since being discharged from the military.
Look at Seung Gi! As usual he looks chicky and handsome!!! In the drama series, Lee Seung Gi’s role is Son Oh Gong, which is the “Sun Wu Kong” in the novel.
Cha Seung Won, veteren actor. If you never seen him before, try googling the drama series and films he acted before. All were AWESOME! And and and! Even he is an ahjussi now, but he still that manly and handsome. OWH!!!!! So, in this Hwayugi, he acts as Woo Ma Wang which is the Bull Demon King based on the novel.
Oh Yeon Seo!!! I really likes her acting skills! Is like really DAEBAK! She acts as Jin Seon Mi in this drama series which is Xuan Zang based on the Chinese novel.
I guess KPOP fans are familiar with this guy. Lee Hong Gi, main singer of F.T. Island and obsessed with nail art. Couldn’t deny the fact that the nail art he did shows how creative person he is. His role based on the novel is Zhu Ba Jie, but is called Jeo Pal Gye or P.K in this drama.
Another veteren actor! All the films and dramas he acted, most of it is a HIT! He acts as Sa Oh Jeong which is Sha Wu Jing based on the novel. By the way, I really need to praise his professionalism!!! He encountered a car accident during 16th January when he is on the way for the shoot but he still managed to finish the shoot despite of the shock and headaches he faced.
The last episode of this drama will be aired on 4th March 2018, which means is gonna end soon!!!
So, to the people who are already watching this drama, I would like to say, you all did a great job keeping up with 2 episodes every week, but don’t be heart broken because there are still a lot of upcoming drama series for you to chase. But, for those who haven’t watch this drama before, it’s time for you to start watching! And you don’t need to wait every week for the new episodes to air, now you can just watch it without encountering the hardship of waiting. Trust me, when new dramas are currently airing and you need wait like for so long just for the 2 new episodes. It’s TOUGH! ARGH!!!
Anyway, have fun chasing and watching! More korean dramas to be recommended soon!
