The doctor’s bloodlust is awakened in KBS’s Blood

Here’s a peek at Ahn Jae-hyun’s vampire smoulder for his new drama Blood, headed to KBS on Mondays and Tuesdays next month. It wouldn’t be a proper vampire drama without some stylish brooding, so the first teaser (short as it is) doesn’t really have any other purpose than to give us a quick taste of the bloodthirsty vampire doctor hero.

Blood is the new drama from the creators of Good Doctor, starring rookie Ahn Jae-hyun (You’re All Surrounded) in his first leading role. He plays a vampire who suppresses his cravings for blood in order to treat terminally ill patients at a cancer hospital, a character described as warm and sensitive. He’s a genius (of course), and does the job no matter how hard it is for him, because he understands the sanctity of life better than anyone.

Gu Hye-sun (Angel Eyes) plays a hotshot heiress doctor, a star physician at the hospital and the niece of the board’s chairman. She’s snooty and cold, but highly capable, and used to being the golden girl. Ji Jin-hee (Warm Words) co-stars as their chief, an outwardly gentle, inwardly ambitious man who will prove to be their biggest adversary. Kwon Hyun-sang (Mandate of Heaven) is a rival bad vamp, and Jung Hae-in (Three Musketeers) plays the hero’s BFF.

The teaser is really no more than a tease: snippets of the vampire hero, a mysterious surgery, some creepy hands, lots of blood imagery. There’s one spoken line: “I am a vampire.” Am I the only one who’s disappointed we didn’t get any fang? Ahn Jae-hyun’s good at the steely gazes (he is a model after all), but call me a traditionalist — if you say you’re a vampire, you gotta show me your teeth.

This teaser doesn’t say much for the drama other than the fact that Ahn Jae-hyun looks pretty as a vampire, which, DUH. I just hope he’s up to carrying a whole drama. I’d like for Blood to give us a different take on vampire lore and style (and not just be Good Doctor with vampirism, while we’re at it), because so far he looks no different from Vampire Prosecutor, with the same blue eyes and all. Sigh, that just made me miss Vampire Prosecutor. Time to waste a day re-watching old episodes.

Blood follows Healer on Mondays and Tuesdays, and premieres February 16.

Beauty is definitely subjective. How can you say it is not. If someone doesn't agree with another, that makes what they like wrong, I think not. It is all a matter of personal taste just like food. I myself think is she beautiful.

And I forgot to add, how did the brilliant Ji Jin Hee get sucked into babysitting these two. What a waste. If there is going to be a vampire show in dramaland, why can't it be a 3rd season of Vampire Prosecutor? All else will pale in comparison.

your comment made my day !

maybe if they had included guyliner, and it's a very distant maybe, i would have checked this damned thing.

but unless the plot is about a mute vampire doctor with a apathetic mother (because seriously she could play his mom) who works in the same hospital, this thing isn't doing it for me at all. are we supposed to buy a love line between two walls?

hehe you're welcome, I'm checking this out for JJH and Red Eyes. I will burn with this wreckage if they put Ji Jin Hee in guyliner, and I don't even like eyeliner on guys. I just want to be proven right that there will be a plot twist that makes him vamp-dad. I'm almost certain.

Vamp doc saves her character when she's a child so he's a lot older than she is. I may have my doubts about Goo Hye Sun but she in no way looks like she could play Ahn Jae Hyun's mom...

But I'm digging a plot twist where Goo Hye Sun falls for Ji Jin Hee instead. That would make my drama watching year, TBH.

They are three years apart in age and where do you see wrinkles on her skin that would make her look like his mother. Talk about exaggerating.!?!?!?!

wow! he looks so young to be a doctor (i guess coz he's a vampire???)

but why do they keep casting these baby faced actors to play doctors, professors, lawyers etc when they look like they haven't even graduated high school yet!!

Because you're not a true vampire unless you've got colored eyes, according to K-Dramaland.

While I've always liked Ji Jin-hee, it still does not compute that he's going to be in this.

But as with all dramas, who knows what'll end up on our screens. ...... We might think it's going to be awful or great only to be pleasantly surprised or tremendously disappointed.

Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Here comes the GHS haters. For God's sake it must be tiring having to repeat yourselves like that. Please do not watch Blood.
For me , the synopsis sounds interesting. This drama is a marked contrast to all those split/multiple personalities drama out there. I will definitely watch as it is the Good Doctor team and the cast including the supporting ones is an interesting mix.
For those with an open mind, just watch the first few episodes before judging. You never know you might just enjoy it. I have yet to see a flawless drama though some are more to one's liking than others.

Lol i am actually glad the majority of ppl on dramabeans dont like blood bcos they all jinx anything they tend to like, yall were bitching about healer cos of park minyoung, bitching about kill me heal me calling it a disaster, 1994 cos of go ara lol and how did all these drama end up doing??? ??

My god. Goo Hye Sun is looking stunning in that hairstyle. She is definitely looking her best since Angel Eyes. (I didn't like her at all when she had short hair).

I really hope she and Lee min ho can do a drama together. I want to see their chemistry once again because BOF was so tacky now that I think about it.

I'm not sure who I don't like more in their respective roles - GHS or AJH. Maybe the drama just looks so bad that its making them worse than the should've looked.

Also, I get that no one accepted the drama but the production really should've tried harder to look for someone older-looking than AJH. He looks like a teenager playing hospital which doesn't help, obviously.

I actually liked Go HyeSun in Angel Eyes???? It was just the drama itself that was a little... mmnn ouch.
And everyone seems to forget that even though Ahn Jaehyun looks young, he's 27 years old already. You don't expect every baby faced actor to keep playing high school roles, do you? Then basically half of kdramas casts would never be fullfilled. So much negativism, I'm sorry.

Otherwise, I really hope this vampire drama isn't anything cringe worthy. I will definitely try it out cause it looks promising so far, if not already a little cliche. We'll see.

Plotwise, everybody knows that this is a cliche. It will really depend on the writing and acting. If none of them is more-than-mediocre then it will surely become a flop.

Castwise, I think it's time for Ahn Jaehyun to start his leading role journey. Yes it hasn't been long since he first started acting but I'm actually eager to see him carry the whole show. He will either success or fail so let's just see. Boy deserves a chance.

P.S. And thank God for once Hyesun doesn't look too old for her castmates

KBS dramas has been known to have lower rating than average. even with their internationally popular drama, "HEALER" the drama is a disaster, rating wise.

I am giving my lowest expectation but looking forward to seeing Ahn Jaehyun in his first leading role.

Will be watching this for GHS. She did a creditable job in Angel Eyes and her acting has much improved, it's more natural. It's funny how kdrama comments are generally skewed against actresses more than actors. Considering that a great majority of viewers tend to be female, it implies that we are our own worst critics.

"if you say you’re a vampire, you gotta show me your teeth." - I couldn't agree more, gf! Forget about the coloured contacts!

Still not sure why we need another geeenius doctor, but at this point, I'm just glad that it's not another mental health drama (at least, not in that way). I'm enjoying KMHM and H2H, but adding another one would be overkill.

Other random thoughts: Gu Hye Sun's so pale, she could easily play a vampire too. As for Jung Hae-in, sooo glad to see him back after his too-short stint on T3M, but I'd like to see him as a vampire too!

I am in. I don't care if there are big names or not but if tehre is an interesting storyline, 'll watch but at the end of the day it depends on how the director executed the story and how the actors played their part.

For once I am just excited about Ahn Jae-Hyun because he left me wanting for more in 'You who came from the star'. I always loved Gu Hye Sun, the person but never actually liked any of her dramas. I love her for the just the fact that she is multi talented and is a good artist.

I wished they gave new looks to the cast. AJH looks like any young idol actor with that hairstyle- very typical. GHS looks exactly like how she looked in her last drama. I like when actors get absorbed into their roles with changed appearances. Anyways I will look forward to it.

The teaser remind me with teaser and opening Vampire Prosecutor season 1. The glass broke, the paper with VAMPIRE written there full blood splater, and Ahn Jae Hyun clean the blood from his lips with his finger (Yeon Jung Hoon are doing that in teaser too). Oh, and the blue aqua eyes! But I want to see how good him in his first lead acting. Goo Hye Sun, you're so pale and skinny. I don't thought, Why Kwon Hyun Sang being a vampire for second time? I'm your fan, ahjussi. But, can you have better role to play?
