Damo (2003)

This show is what started kind of a wave in South Korean television penetrating American markets. I can’t recommend this show enough. Set in Joseon Dynasty Korea, it tells the story of a young 18th century slave woman relegated to the low-status job of a tea lady who ends up acting more as a Kung Fu police woman with none of the status.

This is a fairy tale, mixed with Kung Fu, romance, serious subjects and a little slapstick comedy that usually looks like a training session at the Bejing Circus school. It’s not oversexed, overly violent, or gory. It’s just a great show. Trust me. You guys should really get a kick out of this.

    1. OK GUYS, listen up … I am a martial arts person and I’ve also spent sixteen years learning how to use the sword, spear and axe. Along the way, I picked up a little dagger fighting and some archery.
      I’ve seen movies that had bad acting and bad fight scenes, we all have. However, the DAMO series has excellent acting and the fight scenes are some of the very best you’ll find anywhere. The added plusses here are that there is usually some mystery for DAMO to solve and, the scenery is awesome !!
      A genuine winner ! Thanks Kevin ! — JT —

    2. Kevin, I prefer to live in peace with my neighbors … it’s when they decide to become decidedly unpeacefull that life truely becomes interesting. — JT —

      1. This place is really peaceful for the most part. The main nuisance is the women in the neighborhood trying to cop call each other to death when they tick each other off. Occasionally, I’ve been caught in the crossfire. The last time was a dog barking complaint on my door. I call the animal control guy… He said: Yeah.. went out there… the only dog that wasn’t barking was yours. I said “Welcome to Family Feud!” He indicated that he figured it was something like that, but he wanted to tell me somebody complained.

        Life in lower middle income suburbia.. it just doesn’t get much better than that. Cop callers, hair pullers, xbox “playas”. The kids are cute. The teenagers are a pain. The adults… well ..are.. as people are. I get along with everybody fine.

        Sometimes you’ve got to thank God for what you have.

        If I get through the 4th without being shot in the chest with a roman candle, it will be a nice summer.
