House of Dragons
Today’s ‘House of Dragons’ is the most anticipated work in the second half of the year, with $200 million spent, ‘Eyes are good’ with spectacular graphic effects Will it exceed the reputation of the previous work, winning 47 Emmys?
A huge throne made by melting countless long swords with the flames of dragons. About 200 years before the seven kingdoms of the continent waged a war to claim the throne, there was a Targaryen family that first ruled the continent with the ability to wield the most powerful weapon, the dragon. There is a civil war between the families over the succession to the throne, an absolute power that no one can control. This is the story of ‘House of Dragons’, a 10-part series about the warriors of the HBO drama ‘Game of Thrones’, which recorded worldwide box office hits.
With a budget of more than $200 million (about 267 billion won), the series, which was expected even before its release, will meet viewers for the first time on the 22nd. Episode 1 will be released through OTT (Online Video Service) Wave at 9 pm in Korea, and the next episode will be released every Monday at 5 pm.
‘Game of Thrones’ caused a syndrome with a total of 8 seasons and 73 episodes aired from April 2011 to May 2019. During this period, it received a total of 47 awards, including three for Best Drama Series, at the Emmy Awards, the most prestigious awards in the American broadcasting industry.
Game of Thrones 200 years ago
In ‘Game of Thrones’, it took several seasons for Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), the sole heir of the Targaryen family, to become a dragon over all adversity. However, in ‘House of Dragons’, less than three minutes after the start of the first episode, a huge golden dragon flies through the clouds. The woman who wields the dragon as skillfully as her horseback is Raenira, the young daughter of Viseris I, the king of the Targaryen family who rules the continent. As Daemon, the king’s violent younger brother, seeks to succeed to the throne, a long and long battle begins, which is stained with intrigue, betrayal, blood and death.
It is evaluated that most of the external elements that fans who cheered for the previous work have been waiting for are equipped. The dragon movement and battle scenes expressed in computer graphics are admirable. The action scenes, such as large-scale military battles with bloodshed, are also overwhelming. The splendid yet dark and damp medieval atmosphere, the royal drama of the royal family, where the monarch and the nobleman, the knight and the ladies are intertwined, is still the same.
However, it is unclear whether the depth of the story will be able to overcome the shadow of the first part. It is a basic limitation that it is the story of one family, not the clash of several families. Compared to the characters in the previous work, who stood up over their own adversity, such as dwarfism and bastard lineage, it is inevitable that the character’s three-dimensionality seems lacking. In the previous work, there is a sense that the narrative has been simplified compared to the story of an unknown enemy invading from the northern border and a story that takes place on a distant continent across the sea.
Even though the show is over now, Game of Thrones still deserves to be seen. Many consider Game of Thrones the series of the decade. Why is this? We give you 10 reasons why Game of Thrones is worth your time.
