[TRANS] 120526 Power blogger’s review of Dr. Jin’s first episode
T/N: This review was written by a popular Korean entertainment writer who goes by the pen name “Lucifer”. He runs a popular blog entitled “Lucifer’s Entertainment World” in which he writes reviews on dramas and movies as well as commentaries on popular celebrities.
Aired on the 26th, “Dr. Jin” became a drama that grabbed the viewers’ attention from the first episode. The popular theme of time travel was rife through this drama, though with the shows that have been coming out recently, the very high potential for this theme to be overused is a large concern. However, when the first episode of Dr. Jin aired, the amount of positive reaction that poured in was more than expected. The competitor, the drama “Gentleman’s Dignity” starring Jang Dong Gun, is a show that had all the makings of being a jackpot. But it turns out that most of the reactions coming in for “Gentleman’s Dignity” state that the drama is boring in comparison to “Dr. Jin”, which showed the signs of a good drama by creating an air of excitement from only its first episode.
To be honest, looking at the cast of “Dr. Jin”, it is not as flashy as the cast of “A Gentleman’s Dignity”. Of course “Dr. Jin” has Hallyu stars Song Sueng Hun and Kim Jaejoong, however Jang Dong Gun and Kim HanEul are still considered to be two of the most treasured actors/actresses. And ever since Kim SooRo was added to the cast of “A Gentleman’s Dignity”, it seemed as though “Dr. Jin” had much making up to do in terms of cast. However, even with Jang Dong Gun, Kim Hanuel, and Kim SooRo, a cast can only take you so far and cannot compensate for problematic production or plot. Read More →

He takes out his galaxy phone with broken screen. The wallpaper is his photo with Mina. He reaches out to the solution glass bottle, wondering how he got here. He is quite calm, looks like he doesn’t know he traveled back in time yet. He looks around with his doctor flashlight and fell down suddenly. He spotted some lights and saying excuse me but as he got near he saw people dressed in historical costume fighting. He wonders what’s going on. The men’s faces are covered. KT and his men arrived to stop. JH touches someone and realizes it’s real blood and what he’s seeing is real. The Joseon police cornered him. KT comes near on his horse.
KT asks who he is, pointing his gun at JH and asks again who he is. KT ordered to arrest JH. As one man is about to tie him up, JH points his flashlight at them and they’re surprised. The horse got surprised by the light and makes KT falls down. JH runs away and is pursued by the police. He wonders who they are then jumps/falls off a cliff. The police overlooked him. He got his bag hooked to a rock and barely hanging on. Just as he’s about to give in, HE appears and pulls him up. JH faints then flashback starts. Read More →
