As promised, I finally sat down and started watching a k-drama. (This blog isn’t just about Chinese entertainment?!)
Technically, this is my third—k-dramas and I didn’t quite get off the right foot back in ‘16—but, as they all say, the third time’s the charm. Right?
Which is precisely why I chose The Crowned Clown, of all offerings—this political intrigue with a tinge of a romance thing (though I suspect, from
bitter experience, that Show will turn out to be the opposite) is literally my genre, so I might just end up judging this with rather high expectations.
But everyone on my Tumblr and WordPress dash is absolutely raving about this, and I do kind of want a break from Chinese-language media (binging 157 episodes worth of c-drama in a month is quite draining, I would say.) And I’m happy to report that I’m not always stingy about popular things—two episodes in, despite a few raised eyebrows, you can color me impressed. Tentatively.
