Snow White meets action-packed Korean Drama in this contemporary fairy tale retelling starring Ji Chang-wook, Song Yoon-ah, and Im Yoon-ah.
The chemistry between Je Ha and Yoo Jin in the political drama is so palpable that you often wonder why you must endure the immature romance between Je Ha and An Na.
I loved the version of the magic mirror in this retelling, a cool sci-fi invention called “The Mirror” that can spy on people with unique technology created by Yoo Jin.
Overall, while the central romance is eye-rolling and frustrating and lacking some romantic drama instinct, watch for good action scenes, swoony chemistry between Yoo Jin and Je Ha, and a fabulous performance from Song Yoon Ah as the dynamic Choi Yoo Jin, the wife of a presidential candidate (or the “wicked queen”).
The K2 aired for 16 total episodes.
Jang Hyuk-rin (Yong-pal) wrote the script with Kwak Jung-hwan directing. The action and story are creative and strong; however, the show would have ultimately been stronger by reworking the main love story.
