Jeon Woo Chi is not new subject matter in Korean showbiz and there has already been a movie made about him before this drama was made.

The story was not all fantastic, but as with all sageuks, the king and queen come to feature quite heavily in the show.

Cha Tae Hyun is great in this show, as usual. He is pretty hilarious as Jeon Woo Chi. Bong Gu steals the show read more as Jeon Woo Chi's hilarious sidekick. Unfortunately, UEE is very underused, being the second lead. The development of the villains as characters is also quite poor, but Lee Jin Hoon does a really good job with what he is given as the villain Kang Rim. Thankfully the story is kept moving along quite swiftly through various plot twists and plot devices.

On the sageuk front, this is not an excellent show, but as a lighthearted comedy with some royal intrigue that is not too addictive, I recommend this show.

I have to create a time line to connect the pieces, the characters, the trips to memory lane, the events and the conflicts evolving to the magical world of Jeonwoochi… and yes Hello Harry Potter, meet your long lost Korean brother. •wink

It started off beat for me but my part-witch-and-even-now-still-Gyeonwoo-lovestruck-self stayed loyal and while it groped its way to my curiosity, it finally hit the right nerve, and I stayed firm read more and loyal happy sending him off. It was a scenario where patience is required to finish the drama to realize its potential and worth.

Jeonwoochi relied on its profound characters to cover the loose ends and frustrating subplots of the story. But it was also where I saw a very stubborn cast as a whole and a hero who albeit his magical prowess and sort of brainy-self was sometimes confused on his strategies to defeat the opposing warlocks.

As what I’ve mentioned earlier, you have to be really patient as it was an adventure that was really not that engrossing. If truth be told, it was really Cha Tae Hyun’s Jeonwoochi portrayal that saved the day. I almost sent a howler to Mu-yeon to make her understand that there are really people who can’t be given a chance to change when she let Gang-rim out of the talisman cage. For me her performance was flat.

Jeonwoochi might have failed to live through its “consistency” mantra but it was still a good watch. This drama has half-convinced me to give a fair rating because of the humor surge and main actor’s performance. Other than that the screenplay, directing and even the visual effects were just mediocrely done.

If you need a neutralizer to the 2013 romance drama spree, trust Jeonwoochi to provide you a breather. Bewitching and fun, this drama won’t brag much but will make you smile. -jediprincess ^_^

    I love Chae Tae Hyun but I'm already up to episode 8 and the story doesn't grab my full attention yet. I like other of his works. Therefore I am gonna stop watching it. I was really excited to watch it but no... I can't keep watching. T_T

    I liked this drama although it didn't get the proper attention, I still think that Tae Hyun was great here and Bong Goo is totally my favourite character.

    On another note, I liked Chan Whee and Eun Woo's relationship better than the main one.
