Oh, I have been waiting for Park Bo Gum to grace my screen again, and the teasers for Encounter do not disappoint. We usually reserve the term “mane of glory” for the sageuk and historical locks, but Park Bo Gum just owns this look. It is not hard to imagine someone being tempted, perhaps longing, for an “encounter.”
Y’all know how much I struggle with watching historicals, but 100 Days My Prince is tempting me anyway! D.O. is a fantastic actor and this teaser cracks me up. How could I not be won over?
Here’s the plot summary from MDL if you need a refresher like I did: “Lee Yul falls off a cliff and nearly dies in an attempted assassination. He loses his memory and wanders for 100 days under a new name and personality. During this period, he meets Hong Sim, head of the first detective agency in Joseon.”
I’m in. Even looking at my hideously full drama plate, I will make it work SOMEHOW.
What about you, drama fans? Will you be watching? 100 Days My Prince starts on Monday, September 10th, on tvN.
Until then, I remain–

I just can’t. I can’t try to pretend that over half of the drama doesn’t skeeve me the heck out. So while I will be continuing to watch Hwarang for the fun school antics I will be liberally fast forwarding the fake incest parts. This also means that I won’t be recapping it at all in the future.
