It takes me 4 years to finally watch Train to Busan! I have never been interested in any zombie shows or dramas. I mustered my strength when Kingdom and Kingdom 2 aired. Even so, I was too scared I watched them in broad daylight. Yeah, I am a chicken and wuss. I don’t do well with the horror genre. When I started to work from home due to COVID-19, one of the things my son and I decided to commit to watching different movies every night. Though my son cheated at times, I stick to the rule. Only unseen movies and of course, I suggested Train to Busan. I needed a friend!
From one controversy drama post to another! Yes, I’m talking about Blood. When Bel and I discussed on Tweeter whether we should watch it, we received zero support. “Think twice before you watch it!” or “Go YouTube a scene clip and you will understand why this is a must NOT watch drama!” Oh, wow. The overwhelming of outrageous support took us by surprise. WE have heard how bad it was but ever since the article Drama Fever posted on the OTP’s real life love, our curiosity won over us. How can we not, right? We must judge it for ourselves!
For the record, we completed Blood in three days! THREE DAYS!!!! And we kept our watch in secret (okay, my big mouth spilled it to a few people) and we continuously to tweet each other via DM. Bless the Twitter DM. And strangely, we were so absorbed in it and we kept telling each other that we cannot find the show painfully annoying nor uninteresting. Are we that ignorant? Or is it because we are so immune with overacting and overzealous in dailies that Blood turns out to be extraordinarily entertaining and acceptable?
I asked Bel her opinion and this is what she has to say:
“A funny thing happened on the way NOT to this drama, Blood (2015). Not only did we ignore everyone’s opinion and watched in secret; but an amazing thing happened… We liked it!!! Mickey!!! We liked it! Okay, this is really not unusual, folks! My drop list is full of drams that people liked that I either hated, couldn’t finished or just blame didn’t understand the excitement for!
Here’s the strange thing about Blood. It really wasn’t a medical drama! At least, I never looked it as such! Brain is a medical drama! The Virus! Hell, even the crappy Medical Top Team was really a medical drama! Blood was simply about a man who finds himself affected by a disease and is searching for the cure. I admit that a lot of the supporting characters like Joo Hyun Woo truly added substance to this drama; however, we watched it in 3 days and I cannot say I was even, truly bored!”
And there you have it, folks! Bel and I against the world! WE did it and happy to say we are completely satisfied with the drama! Tell us what it is about Blood that you dislike. Bel and I would love to hear it from you!
