First look at Night Watchman’s dragons and ghosts

Here’s the first preview for MBC’s upcoming ghostbusting, dragon-slaying fantasy-sageuk Records of a Night Watchman, which premieres on August 4 after Triangle wraps up next week.

The teaser tells us: “A world of chaos in which humans and ghosts live together… These are the night watchman’s last records.”

Aside from that, well, my momma told me that if I can’t think of something nice to say, I shouldn’t say anything at all, so…..

Don't get me wrong, but how do I have to take this: Nothing nice to say? I think that it looks pretty awesome and for once not all the people are runnning around in the same typical sageuk costumes. Joseon qGunman doesn't do it for me storywise, so I look forward to this!

Agree with you, these stills and also Joseon Gunman. Looking forward to this one.

Required fields are marked *

Me too!

At least we know we're in for a wild ride.

Kdrama sagueks were getting a bit boring and stale with repetitive story line. Looking forward to something exciting.

I hope this drama doesn't disappoint.

Me three! I am not feeling Joseon Gunman for some reason :/... I was so looking forward to it because it had the same PD from The Princess Man (and we all know how alksjdalskdja amazing that drama was!), so I'm a bit disappointed. I don't feel the connection to the characters AT ALL~ bah.

Anywho, as a sageuk fan, I'm looking forward to this new drama because it looks like it's going to be quite adventurous. I hope the script writing is good and who knows~ it might be the next fantasy style version of Chuno :D.

Huh. Yeah. This was not really what I was expecting...like at all.

I thought it would be like a SKKS/Arang mix when it was first announced, but I've watched it steadily head towards...not that. And then this, well...

It could still be good right?

Yeah... I see what you all mean- it looks like it has a great potential to be all over the place, leaving the audience (as well as the cast, director, producer, AND writer) pretty confused as to the point of the story. If there will be any.

Not that I was waiting for this drama, but mentioning "Faith" and "Gu Family Book", makes me cringe, as well as wish the drama best best wishes. >_<

Idk if I just had super low expectations, but to me it doesn't look that bad. It sort of reminds me of The Legend, which could be a good and bad thing.

I wish we could have seen more of Jung Il Woo though, he is the lead for god's sake. He's really the only reason I'm tuning in.

I spent most of the teaser laughing at Kim Sung Oh (I just feel so bad for him) and cringing at that awful kiss. Also I really hope they keep the CGI to a minimum.

Whatever the bad was up there, the KISS made me really really mad. So what if you don't really like him? If you are trying to seduce him to your evil side, KISS HIM BACK.

(This is my guess as to what the purpose of the scene is based on pure conjecture.)

I really don't mind the costumes, or the take-us-seriously tone they're going for, plot seems fine, CGIs look good, but I really don't know how I'll get through the scenes with Yunho in it.

The costumes look a lot better here than they did in the stills, and the dragon is cool, but the acting looks like full-on, eyeball-rolling, scenery-chewing schlock.

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

Well they have fantasy element, strange costumes with strange hairstyles (ex.Go Seung Hee, Kim Sung Oh). I think this one is much closer to Gu Family Book than Arang/SKKS. I don't have any expectations for this one, though I might tune in for the first 2 eps to see Jung Il Woo.

Yeah, see it definitely seems more like Gu Family/Faith and that's why I'm disappointed. It's just not what I personally wanted for the drama. But, I think it's definitely too soon to write this off. It could actually be pretty good!

Oh no. . . That's too long before Jung Il Woo to show up.

I like the dragon CGI, but the preview is kinda cheesy. I have to stop thinking that Yunho is going to break out dancing.What is it with the guy in the Halloween mask and the guy with the blond hair? Don't know how to take this drama seriously or is it Camp? LOL.

i don't think you'll be able to see ilwoo in the first 2 episode since it'll be the childhood story first aka the father's story so probably the adult leads come in around ep 5 or 6

Being a big Harry Potter fan the idea of fantasy meets sageuk. Seems like a fun time. Bring on the demons and dragons. Surely you will need magic to expel such beast.

The goat with the garden and Emperor's hair popped into my mind at "special effects" heehee. Though the ghosts were pretty realistic.

sigh AATM was awesome. though mostly Shin Min Ah's chemistry with Lee Jun Ki kept me going.

It is shocking. It reminds me of a cheap production drama.All the dragons etc. yuks..I thought it would be a comedy kind of drama... And Yunho acting going to be a pain to watch..I will give it 1-2 episode for my bias Jung II Woo sake. Sorry II woo if it is not watchable.

LMAO, this is beyond tacky. I can't get past the hideous costumes, they really look cheap and the ones kids get for Halloween. And the hair. Eww the hair(s).

I think they need a much bigger budget if they're going to go all out like that. I'm guessing they were aiming for Lord of the Rings/Harry Potter type look. And they've missed it by... A lot.

Have to wait and see.

Won't say I'm excited, as of late the shows I was hyped up for, (Gunman, Trot Lovers, Gap Dong) have been disappointments and the ones that I've watched with no expectations have been the pleasant surprises, (King of Savvy, FTLY).

Hopefully the writers can give us a reason to want to care about the characters and not just fill in the blanks for 5 common drama tropes and say ta-da, we have a drama !

This reminds me soooooo much of Legend, yunno, the BIG budget fantasy sageuk with Yonsama as the hero and Lee Ji-ah as the tomboy heroine. I stuck through that one (and it actually had a few good moments) but mostly because I was watching with a friend and we'd sit and snark at the cheesy bits.

Whether I'll watch it or not is more a factor of what I'm in the mood for at any particular time, but this doesn't exactly nudge it higher on my list.

Seriously, I wish Jung Ill Woo can take a rom-com. He is always in a drama that only so-so when he is the lead. My only wish its not gonna be the second "Faith". Note that LeeMinHo is his bestfriend.

Required fields are marked *

I was actually not that disappointed in Faith tbh. Maybe because I started the drama with very low expectations in the first place. And I am not a huge fan of Lee Min Ho as an actor (his looks are a completely different matter *swoons*) but he was top notch in certain scenes and Kim Hee Sun was excellent. Even the young crown prince and his wife were interesting. Hated all the other side characters and plot lines, but it is definitely not a drama I regret watching.

I think I'm the only one looking forward for this because of Yoon Tae Young. He's so awesome in sageuk roles.

I haven't watch Faith or Gu Family Book but this definitely gives me 'First King's Four Gods' vibes.

Why does the mere presence of a dragon equal a ridiculous plot? We didn't even see enough to judge, but there's nothing obviously wrong with the dragon, looked like fine CG to me. Beyond that we'll have to wait and see if the drama incorporates it's fantasy elements well or not- looks like it could turn out really cheesy, but it could be awesome too. As for people saying they thought this was a lighter, comic show, I recall that the description said they were setting up JIW's father's backstory first with the curse and everything, so it's likely to start out heavy and tragic and then get lighter when we pick up with our main character, similar to Gu Family Book.

Seriously, what was that? The tone is so different from what I was expecting. I was so pretty psyched for an SKKS/Arang type show with only a minimum of lip-service to seriousness. I'd settle for really scarey like Arang...but instead it seems very political. And the main heroine's hair...da fuk??

...Jung II-woo...ottoke?
