Foreign Drama -Mojin: The Lost Legend

Mojin: The Lost Legend (The Ghouls; Touching Gold: The Lost Legend) 125 minutes 2015 This is a great movie that is like a combination between the Indiana Jones series and The Tomb Raiders.  I found it on Netflix but I believe it can be watched on YouTube, also. I loved the way they combined theories from the Chinese calendar, forces of the earth (wind, fire, water, etc.) and ancient Mongolian tombs.  When we watch a adventure/action film like this, most of us aren’t interested in the similarities of the sets, but in the action, death defying moments and sacrifice for love and/or money.  This movie provides all of those dimensions.

I put off watching this movie until I learned Joong Ki was the primary male actor.  This I still didn’t watch it -however, today there was nothing I  was interested in.  I’ve caught up with the releases in my fav dramas hitting Drama Fever screens right now -Top of my list is the new drama with Kim Woo Bin (Uncontrollably Fond), Beautiful Gong Shim, and Ji Hyun Woo’s new drama (Wanted).  I don’t want to forget Park Shin Hye’s new drama (Doctor Crush). I can hardly start a day without appeasing my Kdrama addiction -so I chose this movie.  I loved it! Park Bo Young -most recently seen in Oh My Ghost, was perfect.  All young girls can remember when her first love consumed her …
