    There's no doubt in my mind after seeing the preview for the next episode and I also agree that HJ husband is a abusive ex husband and it's going take HG to knock his butt down a peg or 2. I'm actually waiting to see more interacting between HG/HJ and as being one of my favorites but likes all 3 soon to be couples

    Hi pretties back after watching the raw. DAEBAK episode wasn’t it …..I am grinning from ear to ear
    First off- thanks to all recappers and subbers- your hard work is much appreciated. 
    I loved the episode and I think its gonna feel even better when the subs come out. Guys what do you think happens when you meet a very dear friend after a very long time…….. exactly what they showed with SJ and HJ talking up a storm while eating, talking about shared likes, dislikes, same games and so on till they don’t even realize its closing time for the restaurant! They just give out this feel comfortable warm feeling like when you match with someone at the level of their tastes, ideas, wavelength and feel like you belong there. That’s called Connection!  I loved the scenes for two reasons- one is that it shows us how compatible SJ and HJ can be with each other even without “fated” first love once they really listen instead of forming insta opinions (more for SJ than HJ). The other reason is that it shows HJ that probably her idea of her looks mattering the most is not accurate when it comes to people who know her or in this case get to know her and she can be brave and her authentic self if she chooses.
    It is also in stark contrast to the scenes that SJ has with HR where I always get the feeling that SJ is having to work to make HR smile/ feel good, not taking into account the times when she really was in distress. The spontaneity is absent in their interactions. I think SJ feels it too because I noticed something- At the beginning SJ had a kind of longing to get to know HR (supposed HJ), to build up that friendship and camaraderie that they had before and lead it to romantic territory. However in today’s last scene while SJ and HR were talking I felt as if SJ was content to stay as a good friend to HR without wanting more. I felt SJ was genuinely surprised with the kiss, like he hasn’t entertained the idea of kissing her or being kissed by her (in recent times atleast). I may be wrong but that’s how I felt.
    And HJ’s hair has grown on me. I don’t want them to get rid of it…….maybe manage it better with all the curly hair products in the market!

  8. bjvipb2uty added a post in a topic [Drama 2015] Yong-Pal 용팔이   

    So when the Alice in Wonderland reference was brought up I started taking mental notes of little things I saw in Yongpal that reminded me of the book. I wrote a bunch of it down today... yeah this is how I try to deal with Yongpal withdrawal.
    Just a lot of the things I noticed. Hey, I know some may be mere coincidences but its interesting nonetheless.  Of course, I always like to think our writers and production crew put a lot of thought into their works of art.
    *I really tried to have this organized but meh at some point ideas just kept coming. Please excuse the mess.*
    Alice & the rabbit hole
    Alice as the girl who follows the rabbit down the rabbit hole = Taehyun. Ah yes Taehyun was in many ways our 'Alice.' The rabbit hole has always been a representation of entering/exploring a 'new' world or environment. Taehyun was thrown into the corrupt world of the 12th floor. Of course, Taehyun wasn't blind to the reality of precedence when it comes to favoring the wealthy, but it was 'new' in the sense that Taehyun didn't 1) have a complete grasp of everything that the 12th floor implicated [for example, in one of the latter episodes he describes all the things he was made to do in the 12th floor; it implicated so much more than he imagined] and 2) it wasn't the world he was brought up in.
    (I wonder if the 13th floor was also a 'rabbit hole?' Hmm.)
    Also I found this tidbit in regards to the rabbit hole and Wonderland.
    "You may also notice that going down the rabbit hole is a one-way trip – the entry, but not the exit, to the fantasy world."
    Interesting, right? Much like Wonderland, the 12th floor had no exit for Taehyun. Chief Lee clearly told him that there was no way out. Taehyun had not only entered the 12th floor, but he had also gotten in on the biggest secret in it. There was no way Taehyun could leave, even if he wanted to. Well, I mean he could leave but at the price of his life.
    Queens and Kings overall
    In both AIW and TLG, the Queens are always the ones in control while the Kings are passive. The Queens are the ones who make decisions and the ones who people actually listen to. No one pays the Kings any mind; they are not frightening in the least. They just carry the title-not the authority. Yeojin and Taehyun captured this social status. Yeojin was the head of the household and business. She took the decisions, she exerted her authority, etc. Taehyun simply had a 'title' to carry. His personal views and beliefs/ideals tied him down so he wasn't able to do anything.
    The Queen of Hearts
    This is perhaps my favorite. Throughout Yongpal I could identify the Queen as Yeojin and in some brief instances even Chaeyoung.
    So if you recall, the Queen of Hearts is the bloodthirsty ruler of Wonderland. She's constantly screaming her infamous line: "off with her/his head!" Her solution to problems (albeit ridiculous most of the time) is to simply get rid of people. Of course, Yeojin had much more solid reasons to 'behead' her enemies. However, she too thought that killing them was the only way she could get revenge. Much like the Queen of Hearts, Yeojin wanted to take control and dominate her 'kingdom,' her world, her swamp. Anything and anyone who didn't comply was to get rid of. Her subordinates needed to cower in fear at the 'Queen.' And they did, like we saw with the long line of directors preparing their knees to kneel.
    Now here's the catch. At one point, after Alice's first encounter with the Queen, she finds out that none of the beheading orders from the Queen are carried out. The beheadings actually never happen. Why? Because the King of Hearts always ends up cancelling the orders. There's even a part in the book where we read the King clearly state that everyone present has been pardoned from the string of beheadings ordered by the Queen. The King by no means is perfect. He backs up the Queen at times in her endeavors; nonetheless, always quietly countermands her orders at the end of the day.
    So Queen of Hearts=Yeojin and King of Hearts=Taehyun. Taehyun is the character who, although may stand beside the Queen, often ends up 'saving' others. He was willing to pardon even the people who let his mother die (just like the King pardoned the Cheshire Cat even when he had condemned the cat himself). Therefore, our 'King' Taehyun urged Yeojin to abandon her deadly revenge/murders.
    However, Yeojin was involved in deaths. Here I bring another line from the book.
    "[...] they never executes nobody."
    Double negative? Carroll always utilized language cautiously to build up his stories. This particular line made the situation uncertain. So did beheadings happen or not? Now here my over-analytical brain kicks in. You have been warned.
    Yeojin's involvement in the deaths of characters was left uncertain in the end. Sure we got indications but we were never 100% sure. Did she send the note to President Go? If she did, then how much blame lies on her hands? But it was suicide, so would she even hold any blame? It's the same dilemma with Dojoon's death. Is there blood on Yeojin's hands and how much? This was left uncertain, but perhaps it was meant to be like that so viewers could determine that themselves. I once read a short story in college with a huge open ending (The Lady or the Tiger? Frank Stockton; it's really neat). It presented a situation in which the reader has the 'power' to determine how the story will end. The author wrote the story like that so that readers could have some insight on who they are as individuals and where their beliefs, morals, etc. lie. Yongpal, in a sense, reminded me greatly of that story. Not only were we left in the shadows in regards to Yeojin's 'murders,' but we were also thrown into a situation where we had to draw our own conclusions and make our own verdicts, most of which were heavily based on our own beliefs. We had tons of pages dedicated to the single topic of how 'correct' or 'excusable' Yeojin's revenge was. Then more pages on whether she should have to pay for those murders-which she may or may not be to blame for in the first place. So then we're back to square one in this endless cycle of our leading lady's arch. Of course, I overthink stuff ALL the time but I'm going to wistfully hope that the writer intended for viewers to take a look at their moral compass with this story.
    Also Chaeyoung had some characteristics of the Queen of Hearts, but I think she was more of a failed attempt at being the person in charge. At the end of the day we saw her efforts prove to be futile. Who knows, maybe she was going to make a comeback in the future but I doubt she'd ever fill the requisites to be in Yeojin's position.
    White Knight
    Last of all, the White Knight. I believe he can also represent Taehyun. The Knight is the only character that really helps Alice. It's interesting that he is the one who saves her from the 'Red Knight' and guides her on her final stage in becoming a 'Queen.' Dare I say, he takes her to her throne. However, once he guides her there he says he can't accompany her any longer. They part ways and the sad Knight walks away. me delusional but that fits Taehyun and Yeojin like a glove.
    And finally just some interesting tidbits. Coincidences probably.
    This poem; it's recited by Alice in the book:
    It's actually a parody on a moralistic poem on being a 'goody-two-shoes.' Carroll twisted it to create one revolving around deception with the use of crocodiles. Heh.
    Colors colors colors~~~
    Remember this scene?
    White roses contrasting with the red blood. In AIW, the Queen of Hearts has a garden full of red roses (only red; her color). There happens to be one bush of white roses that was accidentally planted so it gets painted red. I find it visually intriguing how we had Yeojin break the vase with white roses and that they were scattered around her blood (red). The Yeojin, who was filled with hatred and revenge, had finally awaken. Our Queen of Hearts.
    What color was Yeojin wearing when she officially became the Chairwoman? Red! Plus her wide array of pink/red hues for her lipstick.
     When Chaeyoung was being all pompous about her 'victory' over Yeojin she wore this blouse. Red roses.
    *takes deep breath* There. I'm done. If you get anything out of this analysis, it's that I think too much. There's a few more things I had in mind but that's enough for today.

    ok guys..emotions are starting to heat up (& NOT ONLY in the  I did say from the beginning that  HJ should have been truthful..but if you remember, when she went to meet SJ ( & that was  her original intention )  SJ at that time walked up to another pretty girl & mistook her for HJ..that's pretty intimidating..It's not an excuse for HJ, but makes it a little more understandable & she obviously will pay for it..
    On the other hand, it most surely does not excuse HR of what she is doing..bad girl..

    I have only been reading in our forum & haven't actually watched the new ep yet ( getting up courage)   I do hate when things start to get messy..I don't  actually dislike any of the characters, so I will just hope that in the end, they will end up with who they truly love..sigh

    No one can be Yoona with her popularity but still with simple style and humble person. Jonghyun also like that. So there are same.
    I hope we will see more Jonghyun Yoona interactions.

    Lee Young Ae Unveils a Chic Short Hairstyle in New JLook Pictorial

    I might actually consider turning to the dark side if the trade-off is partaking of K-actress Lee Young Ae‘s beautifully aging fountain of class. it looks like her comeback after a ten year hiatus is well underway, with a steady stream of CF and fashion pictorials coming out, each confirming yet again that she’s deserving of being Korea’s most widely known actress export thanks to the enduring popularity of Dae Jang Geum.
    Her latest pictorial is modeling designer wristwatches in a JLook spread, with the most noticeable transformation being her elegant new short haircut. I love it so much on her, it frames her insanely fine-boned facial features even more beautifully than a fall of long hair. I was never a fan during her DJG days but now am turning into one thanks to her well calibrated comeback train, with the ending station being her upcoming pre-filmed drama Saimdang: The Herstory, which airs sometime in 2016.

    This is actually what i first thought of when i saw his post. i'm a non-smoker and i definitely can not stand the smell of cigarette so i guess maybe JH is the casual smoker type that's why it does not smell too much? Hehehe.. I'm happy that he made this decision. I personally feel that smoking is suicide - for one it's bad for your health plus it's difficult to quit (from what i observed). (no offense to smokers here. I understand why people get into smoking  )

    Not only did the production company give everyone a coloring book, but also a beautiful set of colored pencils.

    I have watched movies being filmed. There is a lot of time where the cast needs to wait for lights and cameras to be adjusted. The Flying Daggers cast used this time to have fun coloring pictures.

    From the preview ,its become more and more interesting,maybe HNR will feel a bit jelaous when she see SY with HS..thats good because from there she will realise her feeling and it will become deeper.Just want to see how  HNR reacts  when she jealous .. and prof will do something smart about that..
    cant wait for the translation of the preview esp the part HS and YY..what did she said to it something about HNR feeling toward him...hoping YY will tell HS that HNR  like him...Hoping from the pics at the park, HS will grab HNR hand and go somewhere and they will give us some scenes that we are hoping for...
    Hoping in episode 13, HNR and WC will get divorced..because as long as HNR still his wife our OTP couple will not officially dating..just want to watch them properly dating like others couple..
