Just finished watching my first kdrama of the year, The King 2 Hearts.  Main reason for watching this drama, my favorite guy is in it. LEE SEUNG GI. Story of a South Korean King Lee Jae Ha (Lee Seung Gi) falling in love with a female North Korean Special Force Kim Hang Ah (Ha Ji Won). Plot is a bit ambitious, with 2 Koreas joining training together, reunification at the end due to North-South marriage. At first I couldn’t understand why the ratings continue to drop week after week. It had a promising story. Actors acting were splendid. It just sucked to have the same timeslot as the Rooftop Prince and Equator Man. I have seen RP’s first episode and thought it was good, until 4 Joseon guys appear at modern time at the end. What the?  And I haven’t any slight interest on watching even a single episode of EM. UTW was in it. Period. I must admit though, some of K2H scenes were a bit dragging. And it was not exactly the type of storyline I was hoping for.  But still. The acting. It lived above my expectations. Of course most were veteran actors. And LSG! God how did you become so good. Hoping he could catch some awards later this year. It was not an easy character, I mean, he IS THE King! It was indeed an excellent stepping stone for more challenging roles to come! Bogoshipeo Jeonha! and Congratulations for an excellent drama!

PS. I took this DD poster photo at Incheon Intl Airport on my visit last spring.^^
