  1. I've been in a drama slump the past few months, but this is one I've really been looking forward to. The first episode was a tad slow for me, but I just watched 2 and 3 and loved them! Fully enjoying this now, my thoughts so far: -I was always yelling about wanting to see tails back when Tale of the Nine-Tailed was airing, and never properly got it, but we finally got what we deserved with a beautiful shot only a couple minutes into the first episode. Lovely. -I've always liked MLs who are serious and quiet WITHOUT also being cold, brooding, arrogant, mean,
  2. I'm admittedly not super keen on Jang Ki Yong, BUT I adore "inhuman" male leads so it's a no brainer I'm watching this! I heard about it a while back and I'm glad to finally see a teaser. I'm going to start out by saying what I said when Tale of the Nine-Tailed aired, but sadly never got... I want TAILS! Not a hazy magical outline in one early episode never to be seen again, I want the real deal. Obviously not showing constantly, but CGI those suckers IN at least a handful of times!
  3. I love sageuks, and one of my favorite tropes is when the king goes striding slow-motion into the throne room... so for me this was just sublime! Gorgeous shot, very dramatic and epic in the rain like that. For all my hatred of the actual ending, the first half had a lot of awesome moments like this.
  4. Sorry, I'm back with another comment, because I just cannot wrap my head around this ending! Can you IMAGINE experiencing what Bong-hwan did? Not just going back in time, having to adapt to being in someone else's body, the scheming and danger in the court, etc... but you're abruptly married to someone, slowly and warily come to trust each other, then fall deeply in love and form an intense connection to the point that you're staying up all night talking and sharing ideas, can't stay away from each other, and would literally risk your lives for each other, not to mention that you're expecting
  5. I was gutted by the ending. There were a lot of satisfying and beautiful moments in the finale - from intimate character scenes to some gorgeous cinematography - but honestly, the blasé separation of Bong-hwan and Cheoljong left me kind of speechless. Bong-hwan was the one the king fell in love with, not So-yong. At no point did the drama ever imply SY and BH were "sharing" consciousness or "sharing" a personality. Up until the end it was clear BH had no idea if SY was still alive or not, and even though it's revealed that she'd been aware all along, she was never in control. She was just alon
  6. I love sageuks and have seen plenty of evil scheming officials, but Minister Kim (or whatever his official title is) is SO HATEABLE! That last scene was hard to watch, with that subtle smugness and triumph in his face. I said in a previous comment that Kim Jung-hyun's acting is impressing me but it bears repeating after this episode. It was heartbreaking to see him forced into submission in front of the court, you could just see the weight of that hopelessness settling on his shoulders. Can't wait to see Minister Kim get his comeuppance and the king's authority to finally be respected.
  7. I'm thrilled by the teaser! I live for these epic, gritty, romantic sageuks and I bet this will definitely satisfy my craving. I'm looking forward to both the MLs as well as seeing the FL in some real fighting scenes of her own.
  8. I didn't originally ship the king and queen, but now that Bong-hwan and the queen's memories/thoughts are kind of "melding" together (however it may be,) and he's seeing the king in a new light, I totally want them to be together. I was already enjoying the dynamic of their wariness around each other slowly turning to hesitant trust, and now even moreso as the king asks her not to be his enemy and she attempts to come to his rescue. That kiss was super hot, though I assume he did it to hide the actual reason he was outside her room (though I do think he's having real feelings for her now also.
  9. Even though we know the queen isn't technically the queen right now, it was still painful to see the king go straight to Hwa Jin after she fainted, in front of everyone. In most cultures throughout history, even though royal marriages were rarely for love, it was expected that kings/rulers would always put their queens above mistresses or concubines - and from some of the things other people in the court said later, they thought it was a major slight, too. It's funny, in all the sageuks where there's some reason the king can't marry the FL, viewers (myself included) always say, can't she be a
  10. While it goes without saying that such behavior is wrong, the two boys have deep existing conflict between each other. Ju-gyeong has nothing whatsoever to do with it, so for me at least, Suho's cruelty toward her in the locker room was all the more deliberate, and hurtful to watch her go through. And personally, I never got the feeling Seojun is using her, that's mainly Suho's interpretation - to me it's been pretty clear Seojun genuinely liked her from the start, even though he's just now realizing it consciously. He may enjoy needling Suho about it, as he enjoys needling Suho in general, but
  11. I said this last week and it's relevant yet again! I wasn’t really sold on Suho ever since that girl confessed her crush and he literally slapped the gift out of her hands, and now my dislike is solidifying. I feel sympathy for his pain and trauma, but there’s a big difference between being cold versus being downright cruel and deliberately hurtful like he was to Ju-gyeong in the locker room. And she’s supposed to magically see through it and rush to comfort him? It just didn't feel right to me. I predict intense second lead syndrome for me with this drama. Anyway, the CLOY motorcy
