  1. I assume this (first) poster is showing us the people of the Flower Crew, which is why SJH isn’t part of it. I hate how the description is so vague lmao but I’m rooting for Ma Hoon, as much as I love SJH
  2. I was hyped when it was announced that MSC and DL were gonna be in a drama together and I’m so so so glad that it’s actually good lmao. And bless the Viki subbers because *cries in Love and Destiny* The characters are so lovable (as someone else said) and the actors have great chemistry together, where their interactions all seem natural. Fu and Zeyu just click right away and their bickering/exchanges makes their relationship so much heartwarming and real. Even the relationships between Fu, Zeyu, Aunt Meili and the Father are fun to watch. Their undying support Zeyu MAKES ME SOFT.
  3. Basically, I took a look into my old tumblr folder and found some stuff
  4. Happy Valentines Day, TCC thread! All smiles from OTP This is still a sageuk with political drama but jeezus, I feel so single watching this show
  5. Andddddd.... breatheeeeeeee We all knew this moment was coming, but it’s still sad to watch. We expected that reaction from SW though, so it’ll be interesting to see where OTP is headed. Man o man, judging from the preview next ep, things won’t be going well for SW. DQ (that hag) is really taking advantage of this situation. So is it now confirmed that Lady Kim was killed? I’ll sure miss her. Well, I guess I’ll just have rewatch the kiss like 10 times so I can live in their happiness @circulate9ooSame, all that tension and angst awaiting in ep 11, I need it nowwwww
  6. Watched the first ep, and it was pretty meh. I haven’t seen the JPN original so I came in with a “fresh” mind. Honestly, nothing really stood out (outside of KTR). SJI is a pretty typical, overlooked female lead, and I’m not complaining. SES was fine...? Her acting wasn’t bad, at least to me, but it seems that knetz disagrees. When the casting was announced, Dramabeanies were also pretty skeptical. But she didn’t a terrible job or anything here, it was alright. I’m lowkey annoyed by KTR and I hope that he’s supposed to be even a bit unlikeable. Feels a bit weird to see such a wacky character because Jin Goo roles have always been serious. I can’t really judge anything about the plot, since it is just the exposition and we’re slowly learning about the characters. 6.5/10
  7. Omg, that’s what Lady Kim gets. Karma is a CLOWN. And is SCS trying to team up with JP? Noooo, I really like the three way fight between the Dowager Queen, SCS, and the Clown. It’s way more fun. (Unless SCS will betray JP in the end?) And having two go against each other sides feels a bit... redundant? Anyways, I’m more curious about that mini army that Queen Dowager has set up. And I’m still in shock that YH is actually dead. I wanted a redemption arc, but at least this is better (sad, I know) than making him crazy and insane for another 8 episodes. Man, the scenes in the cave/beach was heartbreaking. Watching YH struggle to eat and talking about the king to coughing up blood and talking about his little brother, ugh TCC whyyyyy. Lee Kyu is the character I wanted from the start. Layered and grey, not just the perfect, good helper on the king’s side. He wants a good Kingdom, but at what cost? Kim Sang Kyung does a great job and I can’t be more happy. Okay... YJG just knocks it straight out of the park. This is THAT role. I mean, watching the scene over, you can see the pain, sadness and desperation in his eyes in three seconds before he falls over. And the way his body was coughing up blood as he tried to talk, I don’t know how but I FELT THAT. HS and YH are two different people, but it’s the same YJG! You can see a big difference between the two, and the mood of the scene changes too.
  8. The Baeksang Awards is basically Korea’s Emmys, even tho it includes film. I hope YJG will get some recognition there!
  9. When I saw that scene the first time, I thought it was because Dallae’s voice was really loud (and directed at LH) so that was why he turned around. And then, I thought that maybe LH was still somewhat hallucinating and heard the “orabeoni” as “hyung-nim” from his little brother. I don’t know though, because if that was the case, I think the show would’ve let us know.
  10. YJG and LSY’s interview w/ Cosmopolitan is translated! https://thetalkingcupboard.com/2019/01/27/lee-se-young-and-yeo-jin-goo-cosmopolitan-january-2019-interview/amp/ short excerpt in spoiler. Go give them some clicks
  11. The zombies are so fast omg, like they actually run
  12. Whew this show is probably one of the most aesthetically pleasing shows in recent years, and I’m not surprised with the amount of money spent. That being said, the plot is very well written and production is A1. The writer was able to weave together your usual court politics and ZOMBIES, so well done. The cast did an incredible job here, and so did the production crew. Makeup team did not PLAY, they showed up. The zombies were violent and gory, but it wasn’t scary after the first episode. I’m disturbed that the Jo Hak Jo wasn’t even bothered by the news of the zombies but that definitely raises the stakes in the next season. Also the way he treats his daughter, compared to his son, not surprising at all. He’s a great villain, I wished we got more screen time of him. And the Queen? As soon as I saw that scene where the women were gathered up, I knew something was shady. Crown prince was iffy for me in the first episodes, but he’s gotten better. I wished Bae Doona’s character had a bit more depth but she did a good job too. Ryu Seung-ryong must’ve been expensive to cast but he played his character well. Overall, I like the show. My expectations were surpassed, but not with flying colors though. This show was everything I wanted it to be, but I feel a bit “whelmed”. I don’t know what it is, but it’s okay, I’ll be back for S2. Last note: I don’t think I can look at meat the same after this
  13. Because Netflix doesn’t let you screensave, I had to take a photo from my phone. But this is from “Kingdom” and TCC immediately popped into my head when this scene came up
  14. Yooooo i can’t believe I’m gonna drag my butt onto Netflix at midnight to see some Joseon zombies BUT that’s what I’m doing. 4 more hours~
  15. Next week will be intense(!) and I’m excited because LH will finally be back in the picture, and uhhh I need to see cray cray (and jealous) Yeo Jin Goo again. Dallae? DALLAE! She finally got her voice back yet it wasn’t her brother. It’s only ep 6 and we still have a looooong way to go, how messy will mess get? LH hasn’t changed much (afaics), and HS isn’t gonna leave quietly. Lee Kyu has to have something up his sleeve, and Queen Dowager, and Shin Chi Soo, and opium etc etc etc etc But that last scene, HS and LH saw each other. I SWEAR So Woon’s face changed too And from the preview, I mean... she will notice the difference right? Inb4 HS interrupts them, dirt all over his clothes after he dug himself out of that pit
  16. So like.... was anyone else screaming for the last 5 minutes? Cuz I was She made the the first move too
  17. I’m pretty sure Shin Chi Soo purposely poisoned Seon Hwa Dang, and then planted the dolls in her room. There was a quick scene where Lady Kim was meeting with either the physician or another man to get some poisonious plant, and then gave the plant to who I assum is Seon Hwa Dang’s maid. Shin Chi Soo doesn’t know about Lady Park and the Queen Dowager tho, since he was surprised that Lady Park was killed and actually thought that Sowoon may have tried to kill her. Although I gotta say, Sowoon isn’t in the best position right now. MIL and Left Minister has it out for her, dad is in exile, Court Lady just got killed, and she doesn’t really have any allies in the court. HS is there for her but she’s gonna be disappointed when she finds out. I don’t know what’s happening from the new stills, but is HS rejecting her? Doubt it. He may have just caught her by surprise bc in the teaser it showed that he was sleeping when she went up to him. EDIT: I’m also lowkey side eyeing TVN for posting 12553248473 clips of MotA and Encounter when the amount of TCC content is dry asf
