  1. I'm looking on his name in Mr. Sunshine's Wikipedia but it's not included there. His name is Kim Nam Hee...I agree he played his character well. He's such a psycho.... Hope to see him in other dramas. I'm glad that they showed the back story of Hotaru and Dong Mae but I'm still waiting on the story of Hina and Dong Mae. I mean when did their deep and complex relationship start. @lilyphenix- I love your interpretation on how the ronin boss freed Dong Mae. It just perfectly make sense specially when the boss said, "You now have something you cherish above else" and slashed DM to make him fall in the abyss ...I think ronin's at that time too had a code to follow. Sorry I keep mentioning DM - I'm a sucker of these type of characters portrayed in a drama or movie.
  2. There is no denying that Ae Sin loves Eugene but this are trying times and war is brewing...It may look that way, that Ae Sin was going to use Eugene to pull the impossible mission but (from what I understood...personal Interpretation so I may be wrong) the day when Eugene's life was spared and accepted to be an instructor in the military academy...Ae Sin and Eugene are already comrades (secret ally)...the scene with Go Sang Hong and GDM is also a testament when the grandfather explains why Eugene has to be the one to kill Mori. Furthermore the scene in the bridge when Eugene told Mori that he just made up his mind and will kill him. So I think Ae Sin went to Eugene as a comrade seeking for aid...well Eugene's response is of personal and as a lover...I cannot blame him...their love story is really complicated blossomed in a world of chaos but I remember that Ae Sin mentioned that if love is just limited to one then no different love stories can be ever told. (something along those lines)
  3. I remember back in my college days with my siblings one of my sister would go in the streets to rally and my mom would be so worried because they are abducting and torturing students and label them as one of the rebellious group in the mountains...Watching Ae Sin holding a gun, my sister's words back then keep ringing in my ears, "You don't understand what revolution means..." I think it's the exact same scenario in the case of Eugene...In one of Ae Sin's conversation with Hina after her hair was cut she placed her country first in the Hierarchy when she was telling the important things in her life thus the motto, "Country first before anything else..." justified and explains it well. I have to give the writer and director a big round of applause...the drama not only conveyed the story telling in the dialogues but it was also translated visually...I place this drama personally as a contender with NiF franchise... The heroes and heroines in this drama are often talking about sad ending BUT I am betting my two cents that there is always sunshine after the rain. Historically South Korea and USA are very close allies...they even called it, "The relationship forged in blood..." I think this line says it all for the upcoming and final episodes...
  4. I really love the actress who played Ruyi such a great actress...I remember her in Painted Skin...The drama is slow pacing but it unfolds every plot key points just perfectly...I wish that they will sub Yaanxi Palace and Rise of the Phoenix other than NiF 2 these are my favorite cdramas for this year...
  5. I cant help but to join the thread ...been a silent lurker for a while...my heart is in explosion right now... Lee Wan Ik is such a brilliant and effective actor...he made me hate the character so much...the scenes from the last episode made me remember the plight of my ancestors when the Japanese invaded our country...Im excited when I saw Ae Sin at the rooftop it was a beacon of hope in a moment of bleak situation and future. I am so proud of Hui Song. (don't know the spelling) He wasn't that worthless un-employed playboy afterall. I hope that nothing had happened to the lady servant and confidante of Ae Sin but death is inevitable. I am thrilled and been holding my seat for the next episode...
  6. In ep 38 the last name of the general that they mentioned is Mu... I'm just wondering if that general is a descendant of the Mu army from NiF 1...
  7. I'm in awe watching Ep 37... It was an upright send off befit for a valiant General and Old Prince of Chang Lin. I was just amazed and curious on the funeral procession that they had with the Old Prince, what dynasty they're in, with the soul caller and everything because it's different from the funeral Yuwen Yue had for his adoptive father in Princess agents and other cdramas that I've watched... This one is more elaborate and detailed. Xun Baishui is an interesting character... For me he is a reflection of a true political savvy. Having said that, however and I quote, "The “goodness” or “badness” of political behaviors resides not in the wielding of influence itself but in the means used and the objectives obtained..." It's just so sad that he made the wrong judgement with the Chang Lin Army.
  8. @rhaps we actually have the same dilemma... I also want PJ to be more aggressive with his feelings with LX. I think NiF and NiF2 can't be compared because the two drama's have different vibe and story elements but there's no denying that both screenplays are well written and visually stunning. I am really loving this drama. It's my favorite cdrama so far this year.
  9. It's slow here in my country with regard to sub episodes but I'm keeping up by reading the spoilers...I'm so anxious on each episodes on what will happen. Awww my eyes are blurry...I'm in deep lamentation. The scene with the soul caller was very poignant. I'm enjoying and loving their discussion with military strategies. Liu Haoran is a very promising actor. I've just watched the movie The Founding of an Army and all the actors commissioned to do the film were popular and I think he was just a new actor back then. His acting in the film was really a presence to reckon with. What I love about LX is that she is her own woman. I love it when she said, she will wait for the right time for PJ to discuss why she made that decision with PZ. More spoilers please.... @40somethingahjumma- I read your shout out in the empire thread and I laughed out loud...
