The Devil: Episode 1

The first episode of The Devil (Mawang) aired a couple of weeks ago, on the same day as Witch Amusement and Thank you. However, I haven’t gotten around to watching it because I was immediately hooked to Witch Amusement. Sadly for The Devil, it’s been trailing behind its competitions in the ratings battle. But… that is not to say that the drama isn’t good. As it’s from the people who brought us Ressurection, I have high expectations for it. And after completing the first episode, I’m interested in seeing more of it.

It looks like a fun drama from the preview. Han Ga In is oh so gorgeous but Jae Hee’s hairstyle is odd, much different than his look in Sassy Girl, Chun Hyang. Anyway, I’m definitely watching this one!

The clip looks intense. Although I’m still slightly annoyed at the fact that Uhm Tae Woong is second lead, I guess we’ll have to see how much screen time he has.

I’m loving the March line-up this year. In addition to the two dramas above, we also have Hello!Miss with Lee Da Hae, H.I.T. with Go Hyun Jung, and Lee Dong Wook in a new drama if he accepts the role. I’m considering doing a episode summary for one of these shows but won’t know which one yet until I see the first episode of each drama. Or perhaps an episodic project is too ambitious since I still haven’t finished the first one that I started. Heehee. I guess we’ll see how determined I am this time around.

Synopsis
The tragic event of their childhood connects the fates of two men and a woman who has an ability in psychometry into a love triangle. (Psychometry is a form of extra-sensory perception wherein a psychic holds an object in his or her hands in order to obtain information about the object or its owner.)

Joo Ji Hoon will be acting as a lawyer Oh Seung Ha, who is destined to meet a police detective, Kang Oh Soo (Uhm Tae Woong). Shin Min Ah plays Seo Hae In, a 25 year old mysterious librarian with an ability in psychometry. She is at the level of being diagnosed with amnesia/sleeping disorder and she tends to be in full concentration when she becomes too absorbed/focus into something. Kang Oh Soo, who is from a rich family, had accidentally caused Oh Seung Ha to lose his brother and mom when they were young. Oh Seung Ha later grows up to be a lawyer who wants to seek revenge on Kang Oh Soo, who is now a police detective.
Oh Seung Ha and Seo Hae In will have feelings for each other while Kang Oh Soo has a one sided love for Seo Hae In.

Special thanks to Rebby @ soompi for the clip.

doozy: Uhm Tae Woong playing second fiddle and doesn’t get the girl? Again?! A love triangle? Again?! Despite those two dislikes, I’m still looking forward to watching The Devil. Why? Because it’s from the folks who brought us that amazing drama called Resurrection, it’s produced by Olive9 (the production company behind the drama Hwang Jin Yi), and it has Uhm Tae Woong. I really hope they focus more on the part about supernatural powers and the theme of vengeance because I don’t know how many more pretty people love triangles I can watch in K-dramas.
