HWARANG: The Poet Warrior Youth

hwarang-poster
Drama series depicts the story of Hwarang (literally “Flowering Knights”) – an elite group of male youth in during the Kingdom of Silla.

What I like about this show is the beautiful faces of our flower boy warriors, certainly, it helps the show to look striking. However, good looks are not enough to make a drama good and convincing.

The plot would be much better if they were able to progress the story and not just partially divulged, then leaped to another situation and no follow up to what has been untold. I was expecting more fights, blood, and craziness, but never had the taste.  It wasn’t right for a historical drama to miss something like that.

Another weak point of the show is the romance sucked. Literally, I have never cared about it because there’s no element of chemistry thumping around for the leads. Bromance was quite fun, but the character development between the two was so slow.

Surprisingly, the finale wrapped up according to my expectations. Well, I never had high hopes, but they ended it on a high note. Though it wasn’t the best of the best, but it has its moments too,  enough to watch for a little entertainment.

Verdict: 7/10
