  1. @diane90 As for how the drama: I don't understand how some have misunderstood what happened in the drama. First Soo asked Hoon to arrange his marriage to Gae Ttong - he wasn't a king back then. Unfortunately that wedding went down the drain. It wasn't Soo's fault since he got kidnapped and placed on the throne against his will. Still I agree that his adoptive father should've send a message to Gae Ttong that Soo is fine and that she doesn't need to worry. Instead she was left behind and felt just the same. She is a human being who is afraid of being left since her brother did so as well. So it's only normal that she starts to feel home and safe when Hoon hires her and gives her a room in his home. He also does and says the right things despite also being strict and harsh sometimes. Hoon himself never believed in love ever since the tragic death of his brother and the couple his brother was fighting for. Yet he did what his brother always wanted to do but denied himself any type of feeling close to love. Yet, he began to have feelings for Gae Ttong. BUT he himself doesn't really want to admit it because he always asks "What should I do with you?". He is seeing the perfect way out when Soo - now king - approaches him to make the wedding happen again. If anything I find it appalling that these two men decide this without even asking Gae Ttong who is already questioning whether she actually wants to leave Hoon and her new home. And @celebrianna said: why did nobody tell Soo it's pretty much impossible for Gae Ttong to become his wife? Overall the fault lies in the writing and I feel that a fusion sageuk isn't doing the characters' story any justice. This is a fusion sageuk... it doesn't thrive for historical accuracy. It's basically a modern drama set in a historical setting. I think if we would take away the whole marriage agency part we could set this story in a sageuk with fictional elements and tell their story properly in maybe 30 episodes. There are definitely many problems in this drama. It's far from perfect. I enjoy it nonetheless. Even though it could do so much more with the characters and their stories.
  2. @Mapleoaks5 @Nymeria289 I guess he will be as hurt as he is on stage. Hopefully less of a jerk though. But he still lives in an abusive family aka with an abusive father. And I think it's important to see that this doesn't disappear just like that.
  3. Thank you! I haven't watched the episode yet... I can't wait to see what you all have seen already. But I'm glad Ha Ru didn't get those cheesy lines because that's just not him. I think Kyung started to become aware but he still deep in his character so far. But when they were on their school trip there was a moment he wondering where he has been before that scene (when he is seeing Dan Oh after he couldn't find her in the woods). So he - like Dan Oh and any other character got placed there and he didn't really know HOW he got there. Yes, CLAMP!
  4. I'm rewatching the first episode again and I was keeping an eye on when and where Ha Ru showed up. Because somehow I thought Ha Ru didn't show up AT ALL in the first episode. But actually he did, even if just from behind or in shadows/light. I'm gonna post some of the screenshots later - when I'm back home. I want to know HOW he became aware and how he noticed Dan Oh and if she was one of the reasons why he decided to change the plot. I'm pretty sure he also became sick of being a character without any lines and without any story. But every character needs an motivation aside from that. So I guess Dan Oh played a huge part in it. Btw... I haven't watched tonights episode, so I don't know if we got some answers to those questions already.
  5. This episode was such a sad episode for Lee Soo. He lost the one person in the palace who was genuinely siding with him and he could trust. I just hope that his eunuch will be on his side from now on despite his first betrayal. And then... he found out that Gae Ttong is in love with Hoon. Seo Ji Hoon really embodies the sad King and sad heartbroken man. I just hope he won't go to the dark side. I think that would too easy. I would understand his anger but I also think the drama painted him well as the genuinely good man he is inside. So we have no entered the angst part of each drama and I'm ready for it but also I'm not. On another note: I adored Gae Ttongs confession. The whole bridge scene, the wish making and then the confession was lovely.
  6. Not really active in this thread despite watching the drama with a lot of joy. Just wanted to say: yes, the truck was send by Kim Yoo Jung. If you enlarge the image you can see Kim Yoo Jung's name on the banner next to the truck. Edit: And the name is also on the banner above the truck.
  7. It's definitely still a on-going issues that people ship them despite the constant bad treatment by Kyung. It's not romantic or cute. It's terrible. There is no reason for him to be this mean other than the comic writer making him that way. Like some sad... he left her behind in the woods despite Dan Oh having a chestpain. Put aside his obvious antipathy towards Dan Oh... a decent human being doesn't do that.
  8. I mean still for him... the abuse by his father is very much there. So he definitely is angry and frustrated. And as some said he is taking it out on Dan Oh which is not okay. But I also want Kyung to get a chance to become happier and redeem himself as in have a confrontation with Dan Oh and maybe apologize - even if it won't erase what he has done. I also agree that Dan Oh should stand up for herself and really end the engagement. I hope the preview isn't fooling us. Ha Ru better give Dan Oh and us answers to those questions. We want to know everything he knows.
  9. @nateko It's pretty safe to say they won't end up together. Because Dan Oh made it clear... Kyung isn't really her type and she HATES it when the writer pushes her on stage to swoon over him and throw cheesy lines at him. Plus they can't give us Dan Oh and Ha Ru and expect us to believe that Dan Oh and Kyung are endgame. I think that's off the table. Btw... I was rewatching the earlier episodes. And I remember how Kyung was mean to Dan Oh again and then a guy was walking past him "accidently" pushing him. I think that was Ha Ru and Ha Ru was already changing the scenes actively.
  10. It would definitely be more interesting if he would be aware of how badly he treats Dan Oh and is torn between being in character and hating it. So there is still a chance to redeem him but for that he must become aware and him and Dan Oh having a proper talk.
  11. It's wednesday, my dear extras! Finally more episodes and finally we find out about this party and the engagement! I liked this shot... because it showed Kyung outside the story and I wonder... what he keeps thinking about when he isn't acting like a douchebag. Credit: itsfreeelf
  12. Welcome to the forum and do not worry about your English skills. We're here to enjoy the drama together, so please feel free to share your thoughts and feelings!
  13. But geez... who gave Ha Ru THAT jacket? I can't with this green purple flower jacket. Although I wonder if he is trying to get to Dan Oh. It's a manhwa and manhwas are full of clichés and tropes. Credit: MBC
  14. I haven't watched tonight's episode yet but how sweet can you make Ma Hoon. He married Lord Yun's daughter because in illness it was her last wish to have a wedding before she dies. And even though Ma Hoon at that time doesn't believe in love he did it anyways and was willing to stand in as a fake groom. Also, it was generous of Lord Yun to give his permission to give his daughter's name/identity to Gae Ttong. I would've loved it more if Lady Im and Lord Yun would've gotten married and would've adopted Gae Ttong. But still like this solution okay. And Gae Ttong's joy! To finally have a time. It was lovely to see her so happy. Commoners without any parents tend to have no names. So this means the world to her. And Ma Hoon's "She is now the King's woman".
  15. @nateko He is definitely rushing to that party in order to stop something (the engagement?). Like I can't take Kyung's behavior anymore. It's time to stop it now! Plus looking forward to cute but also angry Ha Ru.
  16. @angelbeast90 I loved that scene because it was Ha Ru's way of telling Dan Oh: I know we're supposedly not real but actually when this mannequin is fake than we're real persons.
  17. Yeah I thought the preview sounded too good to be true for the engagement to be over but in the end maybe the writer wants things to set back into place. Or maybe Jinmichae got his hands in it. Because something is off about him. He is not happy with an extra becoming so important - especially getting a name and suddenly even playing a bigger role on stage. So he would do something to set things back. I'm pretty sure he got something to do with Dan Oh's mother disappearing from the story.
