Video: The K2 Series

At the end of a series I often create a video that encapsulates the series from start to finish. These videos utilize screen shots and songs from the Original Sound Track (OST).

Today’s series video is The K2 with a primary cast that stars Ji Chang Wook as Kim Je Ha, a former soldier who eludes hit men and security teams to earn the respect of Choi Yoo Jin (portrayed by Song Yoon A) who hires him to be bodyguard to the captive step daughter Ko An Na (portrayed by Yoona) of her philandering political husband Assemblyman Jang Se Joon (portrayed by Cho Song Ha).

The K2’s 16 episodes aired from September 23, 2016 – November 12, 2016.

The K2 series video (link) is set to two instrumental songs “Anemone” (track 20) and “Witching Hour” (track 14). The K2‘s instrumental songs added much to this series. I rarely anticipate the instrumental songs of an OST, but I did for The K2.

Asian drama fan. I watch and blog dramas on

    WOW, kjta! I think your video is better than the show was!

    It made me want to watch the series again, maybe with different expectations I’ll enjoy it more.

    You picked great shots.
    I don’t know how you find the time to post your recaps (cause you’re quick), respond to all the discussions, and make your videos. You’re daebok!

      Thank Beez. BTW, a couple of those shots of Mr. Song were for you.

      At the end of the series, I may not remember the details from beginning third of the series. These videos give me an opportunity look at the series as a whole. Plus I can shape it by highlighting what I liked and ignoring what I did not like. Last several series I’ve enjoyed the process of making these videos. The SHR with the video clip embedded was the first time I’ve done that. I’m thinking about going back and making videos for any 2016 shows I haven’t done a series video for.

      Recapping 1-2 shows keeps it all in balance. These kdramas are a passion of mine. So glad I’m not alone in loving them!

      Appreciate the compliment. No one has ever told me I’m daebok, cool!👌😁

        Thank you including my Cuddly Curmudgeon 🙂

        “The SHR with the video clip embedded was the first time I’ve done that…”

        Huh? Translation please? (You may add well be speaking Korean) lol


        • kjtamuser says:

          Yes, that was a bit cryptic. In the Scarlet Heart Ryeo: Couple Moments – Best of Wang So and Hae Soo video I inserted a video clip of Wang So into the video. That was my first time putting a snippet of the show into a video.

            I had not watched that video but had saved the email until I finished the series (which has only been a week ago). I just watched and that song is so hauntingly beautiful *sigh*

            I guess I was so into the images and music, I didn’t even notice a moving clip even though I’d just read your email and should’ve been watching for it. But I copied the link to watch it again (and again and again) so I’ll make sure to look for it.


            • kjtamuser says:

              I agree with your description of the song as hauntingly beautiful. Would you say you enjoyed the series?

                I really did enjoy it. I fell in love with Kang Ha Neul and have a new actor to add to my list of biases. That FACE! So masculine. So interesting!

                The series tore at me because it started out rather light – time travel, playful bathing young princes… I sat back and thought, okay, let’s see how they spin Shine and Go Crazy since it’s the same royal family, etc. (But as you probably recall from me on Beautiful Mind, I don’t like tonal shifts. I like to know what I’m getting into – rom-com or melo. While I live in rom-com world, I can enjoy melo if I’m prepared going in. I wasn’t prepared.

                But I enjoyed it because this was intense, courtesy of Lee Jun ki. It turned me into a fan (still not on my bias list though. He’s too flower boy pretty.) I’d only ever watched him before in the movie King and Clown; the series My Girl and Scholar Who Walks the Night. But his intensity in Scarlet Hearts… I may go watch Iljmae and a few of his other dramas.

                I did miss my happy-ever-after for Wang So AGAIN, but unlike SOGC, Scarlet Hearts did not leave me feeling unsatisfied (still one of my favorites though because of Jang Hyuk’s performance). As to Scarlet Hearts – True, I would’ve loved to see the leads meet in the future, even if he was a reinincarnated version of himself (a la the astronomer or Rooftop Prince), but Wang So was crazy and determined enough that I believed him when he said that last line that he would find her. That made everything OK with me.

                Oh,yeah – you know it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t have something to grumble about: They chickened out on Wang So’s scar so that it bordered on ridiculous- the supposed ugliness and hideousness, that his face strikes fear, yada, yada.

                LJK is beautiful enough that had they made it really bad, it would’ve made him more sympathetic right off the bat. Plus, with my falling for that rugged type face, he might’ve made it onto my bias list. ;D

                One other thing I didn’t like – I would’ve liked an explanation for why his mom hated him so, especially since she caused the scar in the first place yet felt no guilt or remorse. I know her reasoning would make no logical sense that any sane person would agree with but she had to have one. I just wanted to hear what her crazy thoughts were. They should’ve had at least one character question her on it, whether the king or one of her children, so we could hear her answer. And why did the king KNOW she was behind assassination attempts on the crown Prince but did nothing? Unforgivable when a show leaves obvious questions unaddressed.

                The fact that I still enjoyed it is a testament to Lee Joon ki.
