    Hi there  
    Thx for replying. What I meant was the one where he is standing in front of the fIre and a statue . He is wearing a light purple-blue hanbok.

    @lyrayoo, hi ..
    I just saw the pics that you posted on this page, and I noticed that I couldn't guess what scene the third one came from. Isn't that SY in Gwi's cave ?? Are those pictures from the live-shooting ?

    @Kraven,
    I understand, coming from the fan of the manhwa itself. I am a fan of a novel, and I have expectation that the movie/series adaptation will follow the original story. Whenever a new adaptation coming out, I'm curious whether it will be faithful to the novel or not.  I will be confused if there are any variations that are out of the original plot. For me, variations are welcomed as long as it still follows the spirit of the novel, such as the characters and characters development. It would be weird if, for example, a character become manipulative when the original one is honest. That'll be too different and you begin to question whether it can be called as 'an adaption' or not.
    Regarding SWWTN, I personally think that one of the biggest assets that draw the audience to keep on watching is the strong casts. Kudos to the casting director! The main characters are not just well-known actors/actresses, but they mostly performed well and some of them are even above average. They are the ones who bring the audience with them and forget about the plot holes or inconsistencies along the way. Regarding the story,  it's good that the changes in characters have been stated from the beginning, so people would have expected that the story will be different than the original. Hopefully, it also becomes better and better within the next episodes, and I hope the writer can come up with a good and satisfactory ending.

    Well, YS saw SY like any normal guy. He walks under the sun, he was hurt after being beaten up, etc2. Plus she is too mesmerized by him. She spent most of her time thinking whether her romantic events with SY are dreams or not. I guess this is the one that make some people feeling frustrated toward her character. She is being too naive and ... well, she is a bookseller who is wanted by the government, but she thinks mostly about love. I think this is something that could be improved from the plot, just like how some people wondered about SY's feeling a few episodes back.
    The same thing happens regarding the 120 years that SY spent. I did posted somewhere before about how I would like to know about the reason of SY hadn't confronted Gwi for 120 years. Was it because Gwi could not be killed or was it because he was too strong for SY ? Then, we knew from epi 6 that Gwi is too strong for SY. In other words, it would be better if the story gives more explanation on 'unclear things' like this. Yes, the Secret Plan was made by Haseo, so it should guarantee the success. Then again, why didn't SY travel to the West, for example, to find a way to defeat a vampire ? Coz afterall, he has 120 years and more to live. He should have done many things and not rely on 1 method to succeed. Once again, I believe that the problem is in the plot. It should explain this clearly.
    Anyway, I wonder about the manhwa. Does it have the Secret Plan story too ?

    Hahaha, I agree with this . The girl is so blinded with love ,
    Regarding what SY does in this 120 years, I got the impression that SY is an analytical type of person and well-planned, not a risk-taker. He chooses to work behind the shadow and will do things after he's sure that it will succeed. I don't think he's the type that will attack frontally, unlike CP LY. So, for 120 years, he chooses to find a way to defeat Gwi and hides .

    Hi there,
    I finally watched epi 8 with subs. Regarding the prisoner, the King said that they are held in a place where even vampires can't find. Is it possible that they are held in a house made of hawthorn woods ?
    But if it is correct then I have another questions :
    - how does the King know that hawthorn woods can mask people's scent from vampires ? Has he read CP Junghyun's memoir ? (in case it's explained there) Or have he been investigating vampires all this time, trying to find their weaknesses ?
    - Is the King going to fight Gwi too ? From epi 8, it's clear that the King is a true politician. He felt that he couldn't go against Gwi, but he is still trying to protect the royal family and to preserve the peace in the country. Then again, it's still unclear whether he is still going to get rid of Gwi or to give up trying. If he really did build a house made of hawthorn woods, then I'd say that he's up to something.
    Regarding SY, I wonder : why couldn't he follow the King to find the prisoner ? I mean, it's obvious that the King is the one who captured YS, so why don't he just follow him everywhere ? SY can sneak into the palace easily.

    About the theory that YS's dad will die, yeah it's possible. But I hope that he won't die after saying,"He (SY) is the one who killed your Dad" to YS. That's gonna be terrible. I kinda hope that it will be otherwrise, that is he dies after knowing that SY is a good vampire. Well, let's just see how things go.
    Anyway, I'm so in love with the new OST. It's beautiful . This song realy describes SY's feeling, and whenever I hear it, I remember the first scenes in epi 8 when SY rejected YS, then the end scenes when SY is looking everywhere for her. That is so sad . I feel bad for SY and truly understand why he acts like that, but at the same time, I feel like wanna hit his head . I really want YS to know everything and confronted him, someday.  Perhaps, YS will catch him helping her, so he could not deny that he cares. I wonder how SY in the manhwa. Is he also like this in the original story ?
    Here is the link of the song and the lyrics . I'm really sorry, but I dunno how to show a video. I'll just paste the link here :
     
    Well, a naive girl like her would just consider that (the red eyes) as nothing important. She perhaps thought that SY was really in pain. But one day, when someone or something mentions the possibility of SY being a vampire, perhaps the memory of his red eyes will appear and she will begin to connect to dots.

    Perhaps, is it possible that SY's blood can heal but it cant cure vampire's bite infection ? That's why, YS's wound must be burned instead and created the scar.
    Perhaps I should prepare my tears from now? Noooooooo !!!! :(( :(( :((

    If I saw correctly, then SY's face rather changed when the one-armed guy said that. He looked touched and sad . Miss their bromance from episode 1
    Regarding the age gap, actually I always feel that they look compatible, although it is obvious that LJK looked older than her. If I'm not mistaken, LYB is 26 years right ? LJK is 34 yrs old, and I've seen real-life couples with age difference 8 or more, while their appearences don't look that different  (for example, my own parents ). So, I don't have problems with their pairings. LBY also has good chemistry with Changmin, so this is the first time where the second couple is as adorable as the main one.

    I also like this part. LJK gave an aura of *pretended to be* a playboy here. This is the first time YS rejected SY, and LYB had the expression of ,"Is this the real you??".

    Hi there.
    Sorry, that I cut your post. Yes, I agree. We have that kind of badass female leads in many dramas. Like I said before, I don't watch a lot of them, but most of the ones that I've watched have that kind of leading ladies. I never say that badass ladies are bad. In fact, they are fun and I enjoy watching them. I just wonder whether it has to be like that in every dramas.  What's wrong with a sweet naive one? What's wrong with a lady who needs to be rescued , while at the same time, the girl will could also give up her live for the hero. What's the point of having a lot of dramas if the characters all are the same ?. Surely we'll all be annoyed too if they are completely weak, dumb and useless. A girl has to be usefull too .

    Hi there.
    I'm so agree with this. And the one that I mark in bold is the reason why I am being very very selective in watching dramas. Perhaps I only watch a drama intensely (like this) once or twice a year. From the good side, the drama will fix their plot holes and weaknesses. Then again, oftenly, the character development and plot are changed because of what audience feels, and they become different compared with what had drawn me in the first episodes. For LJK's drama, I'm willing to take that chance, because even if it happens again, at least I really like LJK and I'll just watch his parts

    Hahaha .. his love is double . Btw, I've never known about this before, thanks . . So, the series has to explain this 'new breed' of vampire .
    Same here. I have no one in my daily life to share about this drama *lol* . My friends who love korean dramas watch the romantic ones, while I prefer an action one (plus, it's LJK here ).

    Yes, I think being a lead is a burden. LYB must also feel that, that's why she keeps on reading her script, over and over again. Even LJK still watches his own scenes to ensure the quality. Regarding Changmin, I also like him. In fact, other than SY (LJK), he is my second favourite male character. He looked charming, mature and smart.  The gisaeng is also good. I've been expecting to watch the background story, that is the first time she met SY ( dunno whether we'll have that, though). If she becomes a villain, then she'll become a dangerous one, and I love a strong smart villain   .

    Yup..I also dont understand these critics toward her. I think her acting is very good . In epi 7, her character has also proven that she can do something. I really dont understand why a female character who cries a lot is considered as bad or week. Must we have the same badass girl character in every dramas?

    Hi there, @Kraken
    Regarding SY-YS's relationship, I agree that they need to work within the time frame of 20 episodes. That's why I'm confused, considering there are also additional characters which can make the story more complex. Can they create a good development for all of the main characters ? Are 20 episodes enough for that ? .
    In my personal opinion, perhaps it'll be better if the series has it's own plot and ending, while capturing the essence of the original story. The series has created new characters and taken away some, and make changes in the main characters.  Having a good story and ending is important to me. Actually, the reason of why I don't watch a lot of dramas is because I'm always frustrated if a drama that I'm watching changes into something that I dont like anymore, in order to gain higher rating.I believe that this drama aimed for commercial success too, so I really2 hope that the story can be consistently good until the end. The actors and actresses have done really well, so the only things that got me worried are the plot and consistency. Since I've never read the manhwa and never understand how good it is, I don't mind if the series has different story, as long as it is written well. Then again, it's fans may feel disappointed, though.
