Two previews for MBC’s Hero
MBC released another trailer for the upcoming Hero this week, so there are now two separate preview videos for the comedy-action series. The good news is, despite the numerous problems plaguing the production, I think the footage looks pretty smooth, and the newest cast member, Yoon So-yi, seems to be fine in her role even though she had about a year less preparation time than its star, Lee Junki. If I’d seen the trailers not knowing of the backstory with its leading actress(es), I wouldn’t think it was of any lesser quality than normal.
The bad news is… I think the drama itself looks kinda awful, actually. But you be the judge.
As I said, I think the quality of the previews is fine. The content, on the other hand… Well, I’m just not sure about the tone. It’s got the gag-comedy slapstick feel of those old-school gag shows (that trot-esque music doesn’t help), and everyone is certainly hamming it up for the camera.
Well, we’ll see how the first episode actually comes together when it airs on Wednesday, November 18. I’m really hoping the trailer is NOT an indication of the drama itself.
