I am so addicted to Jumong! I first caught a glimpse of this drama last summer, and it was the episode where the child psychic fainted upon seeing Jumong. By then, so many things have happened that it was impossible to continue watching from that episode. Upon returning from my vacation, I tried to watch it again but this time I downloaded episodes from the net. LOL! I even spent 1,000 points from my OK Cashbag to download the VOD from MBC.
Jumong is a historical drama based on the life of the founding father of Korea’s Goguryeo dynasty. This is different from the ordinary Korean dramas shown on the networks. Frankly, I have been avoiding dramas for some time because I’m sick and tired of the same romantic plots (rich guy/gal meets poor guy/gal stuff). My preference for Korean drama changed eversince I saw “Admiral Lee Sun Shin” that my husband religiously followed. We liked that drama so much we even visited the shooting locations in Byeonsanbando.
I love everything about Jumong and I can’t wait to get my hands on a DVD boxset. The series is not yet finished though. I’ve been watching the earlier episodes as well as the new ones shown on MBC every Monday and Tuesday nights. Last Tuesday’s episode is exciting and a victorious one for Jumong and his troop that I couldn’t help but cheer with them when they did. Next Tuesday’s episode is also a can’t miss one. Hmm, I read there’s gonna be a wedding!
Anyway, I’ve installed Jumong wallpaper and screensaver on my computer. I found them on Jumong’s official site on MBC. Here’s the link for wallpapers, screensavers and posters. Also, there are lots of photos to be found on their gallery.
