I got in two dramas in March, both of which were fun. The comedy historical Mr. Queen and the zombie comedy crime drama Zombie Detective gave me lots of laughs for the month:
Mr. Queen is a solid drama that is a lot of fun with plenty of laughs. It excelled with the humor with Shin Hye Sun shining in her role as the Queen. The romance wasn’t particularly swoony, but the relationship was a unique one for sure.
There is also a nice helping of palace intrigue to balance things out and propel the plot along. As is common with many historicals, it gets more serious as it progresses, but it does keep the humor too. The last third did lose some steam, and I didn’t love the ending, but overall it was still an entertaining drama with a fresh spin on the typical relationship dynamics we usually see at play combined with a good story to flesh things out. (Mr. Queen Review)
Zombie Detective is a fun comedy crime drama with a more light-hearted zombie element. There are more serious elements for sure, but the comedy wins out in this one. The pacing was a bit uneven at times, but it had a solid overarching story that was interesting. Choi Jin Hyuk was the highlight and was very funny and also very endearing.
All in all, Zombie Detective was a good ride. It gives us a nice personal journey of a man coping and adapting to being a zombie along with some for fun crime-solving along the way. Lots of humor keeps some of the darker elements from feeling too serious. It was a solid series. (Zombie Detective Review)
