Hi! Today’s review is about “Spash Splash Love”, a MBC drama special that aired last year in December and had a good success. It was possible to produce it thanks to funds from research and science. They infact talk about history and scientific matters that king Se Jong the great is said to have started developing during his reign in 1400′ in the Joseon era.
Jang Dan Bi (Kim Seul Gi ) is a student who doesn’t like math very much. She is about to do the SAT test and she is anxious because she doesn’t know what she wants from life. The day of the examinations it is raining and she is about to lose the chance to do the test, and she decides not to do it at the end. She walks in a park and wishes to be somewhere else: she understands something is happening around her in a puddle near her, and when she walks over it she is able to go into another world, but isn’t aware how she did it. She finds herself in the Joseon era and the people at the palace are desperate because it hasn’t been raining in three years. Dan Bi is mistaken for an eunuch and they want to execute her, but king Se Jong (Yoon Do Joon) realizes that she can give him some knowledge in subjects that aren’t advanced in this period. The king and Dan Bi get very close and she will be the reasons why he is pushed to create new things, such as the Hangeul…
What to say about this short drama, it is short but intense! The main protagonist is Kim Seul Gi, which I liked in “Oh My Ghost” and “Discovery of Love”. She’s very young and she is eclectic, I love how she acts scenes from sad to happy. She’ll make you laugh in this drama. The main actor, Yoon Doo Joon, is from K-POP group Beast. It was the first time I saw him act, and he was good in the role of the king scared by technology. Dressed as a king, he reminded me of a young So Ji Sub! They look alike, perhaps he is one of the idols of the future in the world of kdrama.
This is a crossover story between future and the past, and its forumla has been tried already in other dramas, and it’s cool to watch what happens when history collides.
