South Korean promos for Sherlock

It seems I had mentally put Sherlock in the wrong genre. I thought mystery, action-adventure. . . . nialla42 set me straight with these South Korean promos for Sherlock. (Yes, as Brilliant Husband noted, the second uses much the same montage as the first. Don't care.)

Standard warnings apply: no food and drink while watching. Should be safe for work (unless you tend to react loudly to video clips that surprise you, as I do).

Whatever the people who made these promos are smoking? I want some of that.

For the record - having watching these two promos I have now seen a grand total of ~1min 45sec of BBC!Sherlock.

However, thanks to SK, I now know that I missed an epic (and tragic?) gay love story. Obviously, I shall never recover from this lack in my life.

Seriously tho. WTF? This is fans making epic love story music vids and then getting them aired on national TV. I mean, good grief, I've seen actual fan vids that are less shippy than this! The world has gone crazy!

Yes! That's what I said to BH: these are fan vids! The world has gone crazy!

You might want to watch BBC Sherlock. I thought the writing pretty poor, to be honest, but I loved the cast so much that we finally gave in and bought the DVD set. I do hope it's not a tragic story! (In my head it's not!)

Should I be watching Korean crime dramas????

(I loved BBC!Sherlock, but I found some of it kind of homophobic, actually.)

I loved Sherlock even while I felt that I shouldn't for multiple reasons!

Homophobic because of the jokes about people thinking John and Sherlock are a couple when they aren't, and Jim Moriarty? Am I missing anything more here? "homophobia" was below "misogyny" and "racist stereotypes" on my reasons not to like the show. And yet I liked it anyway. I love the major characters: John, Sherlock, Lestrade—I wanted more Lestrade, especially. I did like Mrs. Hudson and Sarah. I got very frustrated with Sally: I thought there was a good character in there yearning to break free but condemned mostly to keep repeating "freak." I was not pleased with much of what they did with Moriarty when we saw him in person.

I have no idea how Korean crime dramas normally look.

Okay, as a Korean-American I have to say my country of origin has done me proud in creating such a warped version of Sherlock.

I've seen a handful of Korean dramas and mystery films in my time. And yes, a lot of them promote heavy bromance, but this seems straight up more of a love story between Holmes and Watson. Oh, hilarity.

Standard warnings apply: no food and drink while watching.

It can still be dangerous to have them if you see something Sherlock related unexpectedly shortly after seeing these promos. Seriously, corn tortilla almost did me in.

Whatever the people who made these promos are smoking? I want some of that.

I think all slashers are smoking some of that, it's just we'd like to get paid for it. ;)

Yes, I thought of you and your corn tortilla when I wrote that!

I've even read slash in this fandom (it seems that a very high proportion of the fic is slash), but I always feel like the characters are at least a leeetle out of character to make slash work. To see actual scenes from the show recut like that blew my mind.

Watching that promo is like what slashers refer to as wearing "slash goggles" on maximum power.

*Laughs* I don't watch Sherlock, but I've often thought those who make promos (or do those little summaries for cable) needed rehab, lol!

Oh, dear. Dearie, dearie me.
