Currently Watching: Bicheonmu

 

Bicheonmu

Oh my goodness, I’m on the right track!!! Can you believe it, Bicheonmu is my third sageuk this year! And I’m so happy!!! I can’t wait what my next sageuk will be. Looks like my 2015 kdrama sageuk mission is extremely on point! *claps like a maniac* Now I’m excited… Hmmmm *rubs chin* I wonder what could be my next sageuk? Any recommendations? I know many of you have suggested me to watch The Moon that Embraces the Sun. I don’t know *shrugs*. For some reason, it didn’t grasp me completely. But then again, I could be wrong. I had the same feeling with The Princess Man as well but look where I am now… I finished it in a nick of time! *sigh* Ooooookay, I’ll give that a watch! Someday…

Anywho, back to Bicheonmu… This sageuk is definitely under everone’s radar. I have never heard of it at all. If not because of Gabi, the movie Bel and I recently watched, we wouldn’t know about this drama. Joo Jin Mo was excellent in Gabi and we wandered off to find why is he not popular in small screen. Bel explored his portfolio and found Bicheonmu. Good news for me, I was searching for the next sageuk and Bel just ushered it to my hands. Gotta love her for that! *beams* What’s more awesome is that it has 14 episodes! Winner! Believe me, it is not easy to find short sageuk. They are mostly minimum 20 episodes long. Urgh… so dragggggggyyyyyy!

When I started Bicheonmu, I was blown away by how grand the settings were. Seriously, even now that I’m thinking of it, it gives me goosebumps. It was very fantasy like yet giving you that majestic feeling. I said wow! And I love this drama more because of the fighting scenes. They were incredible. The fighting was influenced by Chinese martial art so you can imagine how it feels – surreal, very engaging, awesome performance and simply cool! The only drawback with Bicheonmu is that part of the casts are Chinese actors and actresses. *sigh* Not that I mind because really, nothing more satisfying and gratifying when two giant countries united by one drama! However, the parts acted by them were dubbed. I actually don’t care that much now but some do and some will. But listen, look at the bright side, they made it so smooth you don’t notice it as much.

Bicheonmu is all about martial art teaching manual. Jin Ha’s parents were killed because of the manual. Everyone was looking for it and not knowing that Jin Ha was raised by his late parent’s servant whom he thought was his uncle. His uncle knew the manual teaching word by word and introduced it to Jin Ha. Now everyone wants to get hold of that manual not knowing that Jin Ha is the walking manual. In his younger time, he met with Xue Li. He fell for her immediately. At the same time, Jun Guang, a friend he met fell for her too. However, the two friends became enemies and Jun Guang killed Jin Ha. But guess what? He still alive!!!! *cue dramatic music* So now what?

Xue Li was forced to marry Guang while carrying Jin Ha’s baby. So fast forward some 18 years later, Jin Ha’s son grew up very handsome and obedient. He knows nothing of his real dad and assumes Guang is his bio dad. Ok, that’s how far I could tell you coz really by this time, Guang was hunting down a killer and the search landed on Jin Ha. Xue Li was shocked to hear that Jin Ha is alive. So the question now is what would happened next? Will they reunite? And who killed Jin Ha’s parents and what exactly Bicheon manual is? And who are those people and why they want the manual so badly? Wahhhh so many questions!!!

002

Right now, I’ve seen 8 episodes. I heard that the ending was shaky and perhaps sucky. Well, I’m confused now. How can the ending be sucky when throughout 8 episodes I saw were nothing but sucky. I’m not sure what to believe. I guess I’ll find out soon. But so far, this is a good drama but can be a little boring at times but the cinematography compensated for all the boring part. And not once that I wanna give it up on it. If you like wuxia fantasy sageuk theme drama, perhaps Bicheonmu is for you. It’s not heavily indulge in politics so that’s always a plus! The fighting scenes are definitely cool! For only 14 episodes long, I don’t see why not! You might ends up liking it like I do!

  1. When you finish Bincheomu, please share your thoughts! I wanted to dive in since it’s a JJM sageuk- and Musa, The Warrior was my very first kmovie – but after the EK’s fiasco I have this sageuk “denial” and it might not be treatable…Who knows? Maybe this drama can be my miraculous medication. I fully recommend The Three Musketeers (not a JJM’s drama); pure entertainment, less politics, great action and one of the best love-triangles I’ve ever watch in kdrama(especially, in sageuks). Although,our wound from the amazing tvN is still open and hurts from time to time…

    • Hari, I did not watch EKi but I heard his talent was totally wasted in there. Believe me, I’m dragging Bicheonmu because it is bloody good! I don’t want it to end… This drama will definitely cure the bitter taste in you on JJM. He is AWESOME in here! I’m on my last episode 9 and believe me, it gets better and better. Who cares whether the ending is sucks, his talent isn’t and that’s all that matters! I beg you to watch it! Once I’m done, I’ll try to remember and share my thoughts here with you ^^

      Three Musketeers? I saw it and loved it but still broken heart after they decided not to continue with season 2 and 3. Yes, I’m still wounded… The Crown Prince and Princess were so good!!!

  2. By the time you read this, you should be finished! And this drama continues my belief of how wasted JJM was in EKi and why I still refuse to finish it. Bored, much? Once I saw Gabi and how wonderful that was, I really realized how wasted he was. So now to convince you to watch Queen of the Game with me. Reading this is making me want to get to it sooner than later!
