SBS TV series “The Warrior, Baek Dong-soo” - Wednesday & Thursday 9:55 p.m.
The action scenes in “The Warrior, Baek Dong-soo” are slightly exaggerated. Flower petals flutter about when Joseon Dynasty’s best warrior Kim Kwang-taek (Jeon Gwang-ryeol) engages in a sword fight with the largest killing group’s chief Chun (Choi Min-soo) and scenes containing bloodshed and the amputation of body parts are frequent. But this obvious way in which the drama shows its style from the very beginning of its run, not only affects it in a visual way but is used effectively in strengthening the plot. Warrior Kim Kwang-taek, whose entire life has revolved around his sword, tries to stick to his morals even under extreme situations but has to watch his friend die in order to protect the crown prince. And through this the show sheds light onto the dilemma that warriors, in their seemingly cold-hearted world, face as human beings.
