  1. @orangeluv I, too, think it's DS's father that is the one helping HD with Miracle. Anxiously waiting for him to appear. Hope it's soon. Don't know which way the love relationship is going but want YJ, HD, and DS to remain good friends. Happy New Year to everyone!
  2. Happy New Year! @0ly40 Thank you for creating this topic for "Number Woman Gye Sook Ja." Anxiously waiting for its release. Happy that Jeon Hye Bin has the leading role.
  3. I haven't posted for a long time but after seeing the change in Hyun Do, I really want to support him in this drama. As he leaves his family to reflect on his life and what he wants to do in the future, I hope he comes back with a positive goal in mind and challenges Songin the honest way and not use evil tactics like them. I see such a potential in him and can't wait for him to do great things when he comes back!!
  4. Happy that more people will start watching "Bad thief, good thief". @lmhpsh I am enjoying the drama after watching 5 episodes. The first 4 episodes and most of episode 5 deals with the lives of the lead actors/actresses and their families when they were children. We see the adult characters of Dol Mok, Joon Hee, So Joo and Hwa Young at the end of episode 5. The child actors,actresses do a great job in their scenes. Child actor, Nam Da Reum is outstanding as Min Jae/Joo Hee, especially in episode 5. Would like to see more of him going forward and it will probably be in flash backs. The prequel can be lengthy some times but I actually liked this one, especially the story line of DM and JH. Impressed with the adult Dol Mok(Ji Hyun Woo) and Joo Hee(Kim Ji Hoon). Even though they appear at the end of episode 5, their scenes were great and look forward to watching the thief (DM) and prosecutor (JH) in their respective roles! @0ly40 Thanks for the preview and clips! Shed many tears while watching episode 5. Very sad and emotional. Will wait for subs before watching episode 6. This looks like an interesting and enjoyable drama. I want to know more about the "national treasure" that was hidden by General Baek Sun of the "Heroic Corps".
  5. In episode 3, PS and DM are reunited with HK and MJ. HK tries her best to treat DM with love and kindness but he's also the reason why she and PS argue a lot because of PS's secret re DM. MJ has bonded with DM and is very protective of him in episode 3. PS still unable to find a decent job and hasn't been paid by his current employer so HK has the burden of providing the financial support of the family at the present time. I truly feel for Park HK, who works extra hard to put food on the table and pay for MJ's education. It's interesting how the children are connected to each other by the events that have occurred in their lives. Hwa Young, the daughter of Prosecutor Yoon and granddaughter of Chairman Hong is introduced in this episode and also her rich, spoiled cousin, Yoon Ho. When the children go on a treasure hunt, Soo Joo, Hwa Young and Yoon get hurt and Dol Mok tries his best to rescue them on his own. Min Jae arrives in time to help him and they both succeed in rescuing the three of them. While at the hospital, It seems that DM is recognized by the thug that works for Chairman Hong. In the mean time, PS because he needs money, joins the loan sharks and agrees to work as a blacksmith for Chairman Yoon's illegal gold operation. The work site gets raided by Detective Kang and his partner but PS escapes with the gold before they can apprehend him. The gold is the evidence that Detective Kang needs to help Prosecutor Yoon to arrest Chairman Hong and send him to prison. In episode 4, PS hides the gold he stole and DM finds it under the tree where PS buried it. PS tells DM he stole the gold from the criminals and will use it to help the poor. DM promises to keep it a secret but tells MJ when the two thugs and Detective Kang come looking for PS. This happens when they are getting ready to move to Seoul. In order to get HK to agree to move, PS tells her the truth about DM. The reason he gives so much love and attention to DM is that, his parents died so HK and MJ could live. He turned his friend KCG in to Chairman Hong because he threatened to kill HK and MJ if he didn't. PS feels responsible for their deaths so he's now doing whatever he can to raise DM and give him a family. But before they can move, PS is caught by Detective Kang and deceived when he brings the gold to the police station. Instead of letting him go, PS goes to jail admitting to the crime because Detective Kang threatens to expose the identity of DM and turn him over to Chairman Hong. So we find PS going to prison again to protect someone he loves. This last incident has increased the resentment that MJ has for PS because of his lies and stealing again. DM defends PS and tells MJ and HK that he stole from the bad to give the gold to the poor good people. HK believes PS but MJ still resents his father for stealing. I believe that MJ is told that PS went to prison to protect DM and this causes MJ to now resent DM. I don't think he knows the secret of DM's identity yet. In the preview for episode 5, we see MJ leaving home as an adult and this is probably when he changes his to Han Joon Hee. It is sad to see the resentment that MJ has for PS, but I guess this is part of the storyline needed for the drama. A son that had been tormented because his father is a thief and ex con, and not able to receive the love and attention from him because the attention and love is now shown to DM, whose parents have died, so MJ and HK could live. This trauma in his life leads him to become a Prosecutor who wants to bring the criminals to justice. Hopefully MJ/JH will be reunited with PS, HK and DM before the drama ends. I know that DM loves JH even though he resents DM. DM has always been a loving child. He loves PS and HK and JH for the love and care they have shown him and for giving him a family after he lost his parents. Looks like we will be introduced to the adult actors in episode 5!
  6. @Lunkera Thanks for that video from KBS. Yes, it looks like the opening. I really like it--- so cute! @0ly40 thanks for all the teasers. I'm very excited and can't wait for the drama to start.
  7. @Berou Thank you for starting this thread and for all the illustrations and updates for the drama. @0ly40 @Go Seung Ji @Vo Ki Trieu @xHanaParkx @sharreb , and anyone else that I missed, thank you also for all your information, updates and illustrations for "Bad Thief, Good Thief. Just finished watching episodes 1 and 2 twice since I got confused regarding the relationships between the characters (descendants) and the members of the "Heroic Corps", an independence movement group. The members of the special group called "Heroic Crops" consist of: a). General Bak Sun: Leader of the group. Grandfather of Kim Chan Gi/teacher/father of Soo Yeon/Dol-Mok. Kim Chan Gi commits suicide by hanging himself when captured by the Cheonmun group headed by Chairman Hong, before they can torture him for the where abouts of the national treasure that was hidden by General Bak Sun. b). Jang Man Sik: Grandfather of Pan Soo/father of Min Jae/Han Joon Hee. Wife is Park Ha Kyung. c). Yoon Jae Hong: Grandfather of Prosecutor Yoon. Prosecutor Yoon is the son-in-law of Chairman Hong. Chairman Hong is our evil, bad guy in the drama and responsible for the suffering and torturing of Pan Soo/family and Kim Chan Gi/family. d) Kim Kang II: No identified descendants found. e). Park Myung Joo: Only female member and no identified descendants. I question this 'cuz in the scene where Kim Chan Gi burns the picture, her name appears on the screen before he burns it. Does that mean that KCG is related to her also? Episode 1 tells us about PS's release from prison, his inability to find a job because of his prison record and the difficult life of his wife, PHK and son MJ. MJ resents his father for being a thief and ex convict. We are also introduced to KCG's family, wife, Min Hae-Won and Soo Yeon/Dol-Mok. MHW presumably kills herself by drowning whenever unable to find SY but we never saw her body so she may still be alive. The torture of these two families resulted in the death of SY's parents because Of the GREED for money by our evil Chairman Hong! He lured PS by advertising that a society wanting to commemorate the fighters of independence (Heroic Corps) were looking for their descendants. The real reason was to get information as to where the map that gives the location of the hidden national treasure. PS is threatened and MJ is in danger of losing his life if he doesn't bring KCG to them. Because PS feels responsible for KCG's death and KCG asks him to keep SY, PS does everything he can to save SY, thus causing a great misunderstanding between HK and MJ causing MJ to resent PS more. Detective Kang, So-Joo's father gets involves in the case in episode 2 and we see more of him in this episode. In episode 2 Soo Yeon's name is changed to Dol Mok by PS to protect him and we see a time jump from 1992 to 1998. DM is now school age and a whiz in math and a "Mnemonist". Wikipedia definition: " Mnemonist is derived from the term mnemonic. It refers to the individuals with the unusual ability to recall long lists of information including names, numbers, etc." I find this quite interesting since DM will be a thief at night and his mnemonic and math abilities will make him a whiz in stealing also! We see Min Jae as a good looking teenager in 1998 and also very intelligent! Need to watch episode 3 and 4. It seems like episode 3 tells us more about the lives of the children and the relationship between PS, DM, MJ and Park Ha Kyung.
  8. @Lunkera I'm assuming that the "Lovers In Bloom" will be the title used when the drama airs? Thanks for all your information re the titles. I learned something new from you, I never questioned why dramas had more than one title before!
  9. @Lunkera Thanks for the information re the 2nd title. It's interesting that the dramas always have more than one title.
  10. @0ly40 Thank you so much for starting this thread! Have followed Lim Soo-Hyang since New Tales of Gi sang. Loved her character in Inspiring Generation. Lee Chang Wook did a good job in My Mind's Flower Rain. Only watched Do Ji Han in Basket Ball. The storyline looks interesting. Can't wait to see Lim Soo-Hyang in her role as a police officer! Thanks for all the illustrations! The Rose Of Sharon Has Bloomed, also is quite a "unique" title!!
  11. @whome Just send you a PM before reading your post here. Yes, I found out that the drama was cancelled. Too bad, was looking forward to it. Hopefully it may air in the future. Thanks for the information!
  12. @0ly40 @sava2sava I hope MBC picks up "Wanna Taste." Want to see Shim Ji Ho in another drama!
  13. @sava2sava HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you! Glad to see you on "Wanna Taste" thread. I will definitely be there for Shim ji Ho! Sorry but I have stopped watching l'm Sorry Kang Nam Gu, because like @stroppyse has stated RE: child abuse, I could no longer handle these storylines. Affected my emotions too much. I know that it's just Kdrama, but I probably take these issues very seriously so better to stay away to keep my blood pressure stable! Please have a GREAT BIRTHDAY with your loved ones!
  14. @whome Have you heard of Shim ji Ho's new drama "Wanna Taste?" No specifics on his character yet but you may want to check this out since you are one of his fans. Thanks to @0ly40 for creating this thread! Hope to see you on this thread!
  15. Finally, DY, HJ and GO are united! Too bad we had to wait until the last episode for that to happen. I have been so busy these past few weeks so not able to keep up with posting/reading comments. Thank you all for your valuable and educational comments as I have truly enjoyed this thread. What a learning experience! Have watched some of the new Kdramas but haven't decided which ones I like. TAKE CARE! And God bless all of you!!
