If Fringe gets canceled, I know what I’ll be watching!
We came across this footage from a Korean TV drama called “Special Investigation Report” (commonly dubbed “Joseon X”), which takes place in the 17th century Joseon period. Apparently the series has all the good stuff – mysterious lights in the sky, heavenly omens, mystical forces, and interesting characters.
And if that wasn’t enough, there are more than a few specific allusions to The X-Files and a somewhat ‘Fringey’ opening title sequence. Check it out after the jump.
Matthew Bey from the No Fear of the Future blog has seen some of the first season and says the X-Files comparison is hard to miss:
“The X-files comparison is hard to avoid. There are two investigators, one with a mysterious past, the other filled with skepticism, who must investigate bizarre events at the behest of covert government forces. There’s even a “smoking man” character who smokes an insanely long pipe.”
As for the show’s opening titles – pretty cool:
Kinda reminds me of the Fringe opening credits:
Especially in terms of style and the molecular camera transitions.
I’m off to learn Korean so I can bring you my weekly Special Investigation Report ‘observations and eastereggs’. Don’t think I wont.
