We begin episode 3 of Vampire Detective with San looking into the woman from the video that appears to be Yoo Jin. Our detectives then begin to investigate a new case which is pretty much what the episode focuses on. It ends with San being given an envelope containing an old picture of Yoo Jin and his other team member that died.
So basically I’m not seeing much vampire in Vampire Detective. San is still pretty much just a regular detective for the most part. We still don’t address anything to do with him being a vampire or what he is experiencing. And we only even get a brief glimpse of his supernatural powers.
There’s nothing inherently wrong with the drama. It just feels so average at this point. And considering that detective dramas aren’t something I gravitate toward, I find myself pretty bored.
It’s frustrating because there is just so much they could do with the story they set up in the first episode. I know a lot of the drama community is actually having similar reactions to the lack of vampire elements and attention to the overarching mystery. So at least I’m not alone!
