Blood ~ Finale
Is it too late for a ” Blood ” finale review?
Blood was the drama of the year that made me feel confused more than any other drama. If I have to give an example about how I felt about it. It was like meeting a cute guy, having thoughts of dating him but while learning more about him finding things that made you drought your decision then decide not to date him, then seeing some good quality in him changing your decision then going back to the droughts in the end you didn’t know what do. If this example made you confused then you understand how I felt for ” Blood ” : P
The only sure thing about the last two episodes is that they had too many deaths. The one that made me sadder was Joon Hyun Woo’s, well it didn’t match my sorrow of prince Oberyn dying in ” Game of thrones ” but it was sad. At least my ship had some cute moments before what happened.
Lee Jae Wook becomes the ultimate enemy and goes after everyone. Even his side kicks realise he has turned into a soulless mean person, so they try to help Park Ji Sang mostly Ga yeon. She didn’t disappoint me, after all she had a nice character.
Episode 19 was better than episode 20. It had more suspense, but episode 20 turned a bit into everything you had expected to happen. Bad guys get Yoo Ri ta, Park Ji Sang goes to find her we have a vampire battle, the vampires die at the point except from Park Ji Sang who lasts till dawn, because we have to watch the romantic teary scene between him and Yoo Ri Ta. In the beginning of the episode Park Ji Sang has to sacrifice his self because his blood will help the patients, if I understood correctly, but the writers seemed to forgot about that after a while. We never learn what happened the patients, it was just ok we have to show what happens to the characters and forget about everything else.
There were many things that gave me many questions like did they never report Jonn Hyun Woo’s death to the police or after the scene were Lee Jae Wook killed all the policemen then Yoo Ri Ta freely carried a wounded Park Ji Sang to the top of that building which must have been the hospital.
Anyway Yoo Ri Ta travels to Kochenia were Park Ji Sang’s somehow adopted daughter lives. They both had promise to travel there together, but Yoo Ri Ta fulfilled the promise alone and met the little girl she wanted for so long. At the end of the episode she goes to eat at a restaurant alone looks at a picture of her and Ji Sang alone, someone stalks her. Some western vampires go after her, we don’t know why a mysterious vampire appears and saves her and that vampire is Park Ji Sang with a different hairstyle she gives him her hand and starts showing. Why were those caucasian vampires after her and Park Ji Sang is alive? What? Didn’t she bury him? Where was he all this time?
I didn’t mind the ending a lot since somehow it wasn’t a drama I was passionate about so a bad or a good ending wouldn’t affect me it was just an ending.
I’ve said before, 20 episodes for ” Blood ” were too many and the writers ended up stretching the story. There were episodes that were interesting and then the were episodes I felt like dropping the drama and this kept on changing till the end. I have to admit I skipped some parts between episodes 15 and 19 but there weren’t that many.
Most of the actors did a good job and Ahn Jae Hyun was decent till the end. I have to say though that Park Ji Sang’s character wasn’t a demanding one. I don’t get why Ku Hye Sun received so much hate for me after the first two episodes where her character was annoying on purpose, she did a very good job. She didn’t have to apologize.
The direction was good and the photography too. The nice instrumental music created a nice atmosphere to the drama, but in a dramaworld where a huge amount of dramas keep appearing and they try to make it to the first place, ” Blood ” is a weak force.
I wouldn’t recommend it for someone to watch it or I wouldn’t rewatch it either. But I don’t put it in my category of bad dramas like ” My lovely girl “
This drama gets a 6,5 / 10 from me for the effort
