[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Saimdang: Light's Diary" Episode 26

So as predicted, Jeong-hak's thievery of Saimdang's Kumgang Mountain painting is easily detectable by anyone with proper training in classical art. This isn't exactly a surprise, considering that Sang-hyeon identified the errors in Jeong-hak's fake way back in the first episode and it was mainly hubris that prevented Jeong-hak from realizing the error himself. At the time, I was expecting the central conflict would be over Jeong-hak stubbornly refusing to acknowledge Sang-hyeon's argument even as Ji-yoon discovered the genuine painting.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Saimdang: Light's Diary" Episode 27

It's more than a little late for me to be figuring this out, but apparently Lee Gyum wasn't a real person either. It's hard to tell whether this makes "Saimdang: Light's Diary" better or worse. On one end, only Saimdang's name has been sullied by the exceptionally goofy plotting of this drama. On the other end, "Saimdang: Light's Diary" has spent a preposterous amount of time and effort dedicated to the romantic anguish of a fictional character whose only reason for existence is to have a tragic extramarital love affair with Saimdang.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Saimdang: Light's Diary" Episode 28 Final

The ending to "Saimdang: Light's Diary" is more anticlimactic than anything else. The bad guys are almost immediately brought to justice because one essential character changes sides, and CCTV footage which should have been exposed, I don't know, a dozen episodes ago suddenly pops up out of nowhere and decisively proves that Jeong-hak was a fink all along. Meanwhile, in the past, King Jungjong is sad because it has suddenly occurred to him that persecuting artists is bad.

As for Saimdang, in a bizare twist, the production teams allows her to be angelic and forgiving toward Won-soo's adultery while still allowing her spectral form to cavort with Lee Gyum in dream world Italy. Incidentaly, it would seem that the Italians took Ji-yoon's discovery of a famous Korean artist who was active in the Renaissance a great deal more seriously than the Koreans did. The castle where all this got stated has now been fabulously restored.
