  1. Did Nami actually die? What did BG talked with JB after he hold her hands in front of JH? Any kind soul please tell me!!
  2. @Gwinna .. Just to let you know that I still watch this drama. However, I haven' got a chance to watch ep.15 yet. I cannot tell that I will like the ep. or not. But I can say that I like JB charactor. It isvery difficult to find a woman like her or any heroine in any other dramas like her.
  3. Waiting for tonight! .. (why is it very quiet here?) Anyone, do you think Bong-goo was bought by EunHee from the beginning? .. ( I am getting paranoid from waiting la)
  4. I think the same @ktcjdrama .. I think JH will tell JB off his business with EH As for JH .. I still doubt whether he purely wants wealth and power for himself or he wants to protect his family and get revenge on EH at the end. But I don't care much now. My heart is with BG-ah ...my poor puppy .. I want him and JB to be together !! ..
  5. My poor Bong-goo! It's time for Seung Joon to shine in this drama. He was good in this episode, 14. My heart ache for him. So he does like JB and she seems to have feeling for him too. Did my eyes see it right?
  6. As the Hwarang came to its closure, I would like to express my lot of thanks to all of you who kindly provided the recap(s) here for your generosity and hard works. I had enjoyed the ride along the story. The ending is the happy one for me (I personally love to have happy ending for any drama I watch as I watch drama to entertain my soul). I think the story is not bad even though not very good due to unresolved issues. It sticks to the original story which is Hwarang ‘the beginning’. The beginning is not the end therefore there are conflict issues where people have to stumble upon to learn to resolve, to learn to adjust, and to learn to do better to have the best ending they can possibly get. As SW said, he and SMJ have different paths to take. The drama showed me that. It also showed that with their friendship, they can use their differences to help each other. SMJ and SW grew to be friends and grew to trust each other. Their teamwork will pave the way to better Silla. (By the way, no king can rule the country by himself, right? For every successful person, there is always very good and capable persons/team behind, right?). I have not seen that SMJ is weak. Through the story, he has learned to grow from one who was pampered to be a man and to be a good king in the future. SW has also learned to understand the world, to trust others, and to be a mature and wise man. Even the chief of Hwarang house (never be able to remember his name as I hate biased teacher .. heee), he also learned and accepted SW at the end. In conclusion, I have no regret watching this drama. It entertained me. I also enjoy coming here. See you again in our next drama. Thank you so much, everyone !!
  7. Just for the sake of difference opinion on ‘SW’s actions were only to safe RO’. Even though it may be true in some extent (because I believe, as SW character, if the Baekje CP keeps killing more people, SW will step up anyway no matter there is RO in the group or not. RO is just an ignition for him to act faster (actually, I find him thinks and acts rather fast from the beginning or other words which I used before, he is rather a dare devil type of person). SW has never thought that he will rule to country. He has never considered himself as king or anything other than human. Peasant (him) is human same as sacred bone, true bone, and other type of bones. Why peasants have to be discriminated and treated so low. The reason he wants to go out of the village to the city was showed as a sign that his instinct would like to have the peasants (him) be treated the same as others bone ranks. My point is that SW as well as SMJ would like to have better nation. But SW, then, does not have any tools or any power to do so. He therefore acts rather like a rebellious young man. While SMJ, he knows all along that he is the king. He dreams to make the nation better (which is very good intention). I cheer for him to rule Silla and be a great king as in the history. However, at this point that Hwarang drama almost gets to final episodes, I see only SW who had thought and acted while SMJ more or less kept thinking and thinking until lately that he started to take some more actions (not to mentioned the actions of his concerning RO, that were fast too as in the earlier/beginning ep.) I hope to see him think/calculate and move fast and efficiently to get to his throne to do good for his nation. I, for one, do not want SW to be the king! I would prefer him to have better, happy, and peaceful life with RO rather than being caught in political and war. By the way, RO is not dying …. Right????
  8. If we don’t love someone too much or much more than we love the other one, story-wise, I think the writer do the good job in distribute the plots to both SMJ and SW. In one episode, it was pour toward SMJ. Then another episode, more was pour toward SW. I find it is just as the two are the lead roles in this drama. I also find it a little uneasy reading comment why SMJ/PHS got so little screen time or little or unimportant storyline in some episodes. I really like the way @hazeljrr_c922 wrote about SMJ and SW: “One is rough around the edges by nature, uncouth, having been brought up the way he was, with no name and unknown parents, in a place where life was harsh and survival was the name of the game. Hwarang brought out that innate leadership. The other is refined, rich, educated, trained and overprotected to the point of being hidden incognito; with a mother putting him down, he has an issue with confidence, and fear instilled, that the king could be killed even before his reign. They are polar opposites, in a sense. Their similarities: without a name and assuming the identity of his dead friend gave MM/SW an entitlement that enabled him to be in Hwarang. Without a known face and assuming the name Jidwi, allowed him freedom to join Hwarang. All set ups --joining hwarang, the characteristics and complexity of the people surrounding them, everything that was good or bad, rich or poor, friend or foe, the politics, the statement of the king being within hwarang, seeing the blood of a friend, comrade, and common people, are a learning process, developing the future king to be the Great Jinheung, and the other, hopefully be a great warrior for and ally of the king. The two of them do make a formidable team when they work together.” For PHS, I impressed the most at how he expressed his emotion (his eyes) after the time he threw his sword to the target which he already hit with all his arrows. That one was the best for me. However, I have my bias too. I kind of like the character of SW, brave, bold, blunt, strong will, and dare devil type J with a soft warm heard. I feel pity for him as he has been living lowly and difficulty since very young. Particularly in episode 15-16, my heart break for him watching the Chief/teacher (sorry forgot his name) looking at him once he heard Chang CP called him Kind Jinheung. And many other times, the look he gave SW seem so ‘dislike’. Why? He is one of your students and also a good one, too. I can understand that he knows who is the King and he supports the King. But treat and guide the other student, especially SW well, too. Be a good and fair school principal, will you, please?? By the way, is tomorrow Monday??? J J I am hooked on this drama waiting to know how this many tangling things will be revealed. Particularly, who is SW? Why Aro’s father looks so … (don ‘t know what word to describe his facial expression).. concern, uneasy, probably? The princess, why she said in preview that Aro is so greedy (hope I am wrong here). Is she a good person? Ban-ryu, is he really turn bad? Who is Yeo-wool? Ahhh… too many days of waiting !!! (long post... sorry!)
  9. (This is just my comment on Hwarang with my limit ability in English) I have been quietly following this thread (and have been so very much thankful for those who kindly did the recaps!). To me, Hwarang is not the best drama. It has many lacking (same as many other K-dramas I have seen for the past years). But still, I enjoy watching it (or probably I am a curiosity cat who keeps wondering what will happen to all those Hwarang boys next). I found that there are strong supporters for SMJ (or I would say PHS who looks and acts very well as SMJ not SMJ himself). I also think that PHS looks really good (even pretty) in this drama. His acting is getting better and better. PSJ is not at his best look (or act sometimes) in this drama. However, I think all actors are doing their parts well. They, probably, are expected to portray such character that way (particularly Go Ara). Right now, I am just looking forward to know what behind SW birth secret, how they will kick and kill that old man step dad of BR, when will SMJ realized that SW friend who was killed by the Queen’s guard is actually Aro’s real brother, whether the Queen is truly bad mother, etc. I don’t care whether the story is according to Korean history or half history half fiction. I just consider it as solely a drama/story. I also like the writer. I think he/she is good. At least he/she is good at keeping me curious to until ep. 15 already .. ha..ha So whatever the comments are, whatever the ratings are … Bring it on, Hwarang!
  10. @AshleyChia .. You spoke my mind. I have been wondering and trying to locate OHY's bathroom since last night ... ha ha ha
