Viki, a streaming service I found a number of months ago in my iPhone App Store, just recently added Lee Min-Ho and Lee Seung-Gi’s older series to their lineup. Right now I am watching Min-Ho’s “Faith” and just started “Legend of the Blue Sea”. Next on my watch list is Seung-Gi’s “The King 2 Hearts”. I’ve heard so much about these series and I am excited that I now have the chance to see them.
I am on episode 21 of 24 of the series “Faith” (AKA The Great Doctor) . Here’s my take on it:
The Great Doctor AKA Faith: Another of Lee Min-Ho’s series I’ve heard good things about. Viki is finally showing it!
05/01/2021: I have gotten through episode one but cannot decide if I like it or not. It is very different from what I have been watching lately. But since Lee Min-Ho is in it, I will continue. He’s the sole reason I started it 💋 LOL.
5/03/2021: The new Queen has her carotid artery cut during an attack and in their time period they had no way to fix it. Sent by the King, a general of a specialised army goes through a time portal into the future, our time, to locate a famous doctor named Hwata. He finds a doctor and thinking she is a pupil of Hwata he chooses to take her with him. She is a plastic surgeon… He actually cuts someone’s carotid artery with his sword to make her prove that she could fix the wound and, of course, she does, so he drags her back through the time portal to the past and she does the surgery on the Queen and all is well. But when she returns to the time portal it closes so now she is stuck in that past time period. I am on episode 4 and the best scene is when an enemy is attacking her by throwing fire from her hands, the good doctor says, “This is X-men, right? People with supernatural powers? X-men!” This character is so funny. She rambles on and on and the General has threatened her several times that he would close her lips properly if she doesn’t stop talking. ( I feel a kiss is on it’s way 💋). Also in this drama is Sung Hoon (whom I absolutely LOVED in “My Secret Romance”) and he is so fine with long, white hair......absolutely gorgeous!!🥰❤️He plays a bad boy.
05/04/2021: The end of episode 9 just made the series more mysterious. The doctor, Eun Soo, is shown a 1,000 yr old diary, and....it’s hers. So from where she is now she will travel even farther back in time and will be known as a famous doctor called Hwata. It’s getting good.....
05/08/2021 Update: It took until episode 17 for the General to kiss 💋 the Doctor?? And that was to stop the King’s Uncle from forcing the Doctor to marry 💒 himself. Did he really need a reason to kiss her? ( What a ‘boob’...LOL!) It was too long in the waiting! And why did Joo-Seok have to die? He was so dedicated to his King and General 😣. The young Dae-Man, played by Kim Do-Jin, is too cute just bouncing around. I’m happy he is still safe.
05/11/2021 update: Awww, Dr. Jang was killed in episode 20 😢 (Unfortunately, the actor, Lee Phillip, got a major eye injury and could not finish the filming of the series. I was wondering if they were going to “kill” off his character, and that’s exactly what they did. I think this was his last acting role. 😢). Oooh, in episode 21 the General and the Doctor slept 💤 together in the same bed 🛏. And the General’s crew now knows of their romance.
