Night Scholar OSTs

Scholar Who Walks The Night is fast catching up to being one of the dramas which house my favourite OST album! They've released up to part 5 so far and I absolutely love at least three of them. The other two are pretty good too, they just haven't gotten to the listen-on-repeat stage hahaha.

Apart from the songs themselves the album covers are beautiful!!! To the extent that I can find myself just staring at it throughout the entire song ... part 1 and 5 are my favourites!

My other favourite OST albums are from: Gu Family Book, Master's Sun, City Hunter and You Who Came From The Stars. I don't watch many historical dramas, so it's interesting how both Gu Family Book and Night Scholar are up there. I haven't particularly noticed before but are historical OSTs different? Maybe that could explain why ...

I've got part 5 on repeat now since it played at the end of the latest episode ... check them out you won't regret it! :)

Night Scholar: Good-looking Coffin Vampire!

Anyone who's gotten through a decent amount of this drama would have witnessed numerous vampire transformations - the formula seems to be pale skin, pointed canines, red pupils and red (preferably blood-dripping) lips. Oh and we can't forget the eyeliner.

But the latest vampire transformation seems to be a little different ...

Episode 13 spoilers below!

Poor Hakyoung claimed that he was solely responsible for the uprising against Gwi during the Crown Prince's marriage banquet, and gets bitten by Gwi as a result. The emotion buried within the true meaning behind his last words and the weight it carries on the Crown Prince and their friendship makes an incredibly touching scene.

Human Hakyoung. Before the vampire transformation.

Vampire Hakyoung. OMG.

More Vampire Hakyoung. Is this really the same person???
Did you notice anything? Apart from what a good looking vampire Hakyoung makes?!?! I know I wasn't the only viewer who got wowed when he sat up in that coffin. How did he suddenly become so good looking? He let his hair down and got the 'vampire makeup treatment'. I couldn't figure anything else out.

BUT it was only when I read the comments that I realised this vampire got some special treatment ... he lost his moustache and beard!! Why I wasn't able to notice that myself - I have no idea. Nonetheless Hakyoung is a definite plus to our host of good looking vampires Gwi and Sung Yeol!

Kim Tae Hee in Yong-Pal

Aside from catching some bits of Love Story in Harvard when my mum was watching it many years ago, Yong-Pal is actually my first Kim Tae Hee drama. I've seen her name quite a lot in the kpop/kdrama community, and having watched the four released episodes of Yong-Pal I was quite surprised with her role. With such a big name it's interesting how little she's been featured - not that I'm discounting her character's importance, but if you compare her parts with Joo Won's you'll know what I mean.

I'm looking forward to this drama, it looks promising! :)
