  1. @triplem I am so sad knowing that scene is just a dream. I was waiting for LJH to act a romance scene like that but it was such a short while.
  2. Because the advance party is led by General Choi and the King. General Yi Seung Gye wants to take over the country so he must eliminate whoever that can be a witness or can be a threat to his Coup D’Etat. That is why Nam Jeon also instructed those who came back from killing the advance party also being killed. Because this group also can be a threat or witness to his decision. This is a game of power. You can learn more about Wihwado retreat and Yi seung Gye in wikipedia
  3. Did Hong Gyu transferred from JQ. I must have missed something from the translation. I am watching via NEtflix anyway. if I am not mistaken he was transferred from Data System unit or something. Anyone watching via Netflix can recall what is the translation?
  4. 1) Hwi was dispatched to as the advanced army team . This team is led by General Choi and the King to attack Liaodong. Then the King asked General Yi Seong Gye to standby as back up unit at Wihwado (Wihwa Island) to assist the advanced party. That is why Hwi is giving messages throu the arrow across the Amok river. But then, General Yi changed his mind when he thinks that it is useless to attack Liaodong as it will bring more harm than benefit, that is why he decided to retreat and make a Coup D'Etat. You can read about Wihwado Retreat. It is one of the famous historical event in South Korea History. 2) Yes, I think Bang Won suspected Nam Jeon. If you watch properly, Seo Geom's used to be the leader of North Allegiance Army which is under Yi Seong Gye and Nam Jeon is only the Commander of Royal Stable. Not to forget Nam Jeon also is a great swordsman of Goryeo so it is more logical he is the right hand man of Yi Seong gye rather than Nam Jeon. 3) Eventhough Seo Geom is a high ranking army commander and a great swordsman but he did not live a lavish life. He takes care of his army well being and ration first before him. He will give some of his rations to them first and only take some for himself. That is why he was charged stealing nation's ration (though this must be a rumor coz a good person like will not do it unless desperate). Before he died, they gave him option. To go into the cauldron and burned alive or admit his mistake and suicide in exchange his kids will get to continue living as the status they were in. He chose the later but it was all a lie. His kids is being strip down from their status and force to live as a very low class. They called them ghost and said that their dad is a traitor. Hence the poor lifestyle they were living in. 4) This is too early to tell. Hwi managed to read the secret letter in his father's armour suit but we have yet to learn what is it. Maybe he has no choice. To Hwi his sister's wellbeing is more important than anything.
  5. We need to consider this drama has only 16 episodes. If it takes 3-5 episodes for character building, everything else will be a rush. Most saeguks has longer episodes (20-50 eps) so they have ample of time for character building and such. I think the drama did fair with the backstrory and character building for a 16 eps drama. The pace is also good.
  6. Yes, because Yi Bang Won believe in Ultimate Monarchy. We get the hint of it when he said to Nam Jeon that this new country is not his though he helped a lot but his father's country which makes it it is his country. As opposed to his father who believe more on democracy kind of ruling and he believes his devoted followers. These different ideology is what makes this father-son go against each other.
  7. Yes, Yi Seong Gye is the one who take away the power of Goryeo Kings and made himself a King and ye, Yi Bang Won is the father of Sejong the great. If you want a more detailed drama of Yi Bang Won watch six flying dragons. That drama is 50 episodes and it tells about Yi Bang Won and his family quite in detail
  8. YES, it is a matter of preference and everyone has their own choice to like this drama or not. I think no one here is discouraging anyone not to watch this drama. We are free to comment. Likewise, i also giving reviews based on my opinion on this drama. In my opinion the slapstick comedy is not my forte and it kills the important essence in the drama that could have been explain more meaningfully. Healer has it's own comical essence but the drama is still written beautifully and the message is well received by the audience. It has balance. For now, MMS to me is a bit imbalance as the focus is too much on the comedy parts and the comical characters (MDC hoobae, former boss, his brother, his sister, GMR ex bf, GMR friends, Prof Hwang and his shampoo ad so on and so forth). Half of it, can be cut out and can be focus on the more important parts (eg how are MDC-GMR cope with 2019 and the experiment side effects). I hope this imbalance will gets better in coming episodes. I hope we knew more about the conspiracy and what not and gets to see MDC-GMR relationship kicks start. As a Kdrama fan, I judge a drama as a whole (storyline, plot, editing, actors and actresses performance, chemistry, character growth, logic-ness, moral of the story etc) . There is nothing wrong with JCW and WJA acting. They are giving their best as usual. Of course I will continue watching it for JCW regardless. As of now, I think the drama has wasted it precious 4 episodes (while other dramas already on full gear mode as early as episode 2) and it is such a waste not to explore the ability of BOTH JCW and WJA. These two can do so much but it is still not there yet.
  9. I like him a lot. His acting is so great that he can pull off any characters given to him. Not to mention he is the MVP and rating magnet. All of his drama with SBS recorded double digit ratings with Return as TOP 3 drama who had highest ratings in 2018. I read someone said, if there is SSR, the drama will do well. I think even as a villain, he manage to pull viewers to continuously watching him even though we are cursing his character at the same time
  10. I don’t think to this extend but I believe the idea of this drama is fresh hence he accepted it but the way it was directed, the choppy editing and the lack of details (lazy) in writing makes it less appealing to some.
  11. Just done with Ep 3 & 4. Even though the story has start to pick up but I still have problem with the pacing and choppy editing. Same like last week, i think Ep 3 & 4 can be combined into one episode. In episode 3, I know that in this episode they want to show us how GMR and MDC adapting to their 'new life' but there are too many plot holes that they can do better. The writing of 'what happened in these 20 years' for GMR family was done quite well. We get to know that she ask the RA Jo to give the money she received for the experiment in case anything happened to her. So her family used that money to start up a business and their business going well that they manage to clear the debt and now living a comfortable lifestyle. Her family also knew that she is still alive and participated in the experiment so they do not want to waste her sacrifices so they change their lives for the better. As for Ma Dong Chan, his family situation is much more tragic but they focus too much on the comical part (on the changes of his siblings) a little bit too much. His family did not know what happened to him. They think he went missing and search for him high and low everyday until his father passed away. Her mother lost the will to live (she just live to wait for him to come back) but these essence is not portray well. When MDC learned his father passed away (when he see the photo hang on their family house wall), the part was chop drastically that it doesn't give a proper explanation or closure. Same as the part when he visited his father's columbarium (grave) it was chopped so fast. They should give us more time to know how MDC feel. To swim in his emotions. But sadly they did not focus on this matter. The scenes of GMR ex and the wife is a bit too much and repetitive. I think 1 scene is enough to learn that the ex-bf and the friend got married not long after GMR went frozen and now they have a not happy marriage. i think we are not given much on how MDC and GMR adapting into 2019. I keep anticipating but I don't get what I am expected. I hope that starting from next week the pace will change because I am afraid that if they keep with this pacing, people will get bored for this drama. People here i mean Koreans who contributes to the ratings.
  12. in the case of Kdrama shown in Netflix. Netflix usually had bought the exclusive license earlier. So they already had the raw video as soon as it had been edited in Korea and they will subbed it. The reason Netflix only be able to post an hour or few hours after broadcast is to respect the TV station airing the drama in South Korea. They need the real time ratings. That is why Netflix delayed the time to post the drama online. This is profesionalism. no wonder how early they already got the videos (since this is a pre produced drama), but the subbers of Netflix need to keep it to themselves. They cannot give out spoilers.
  13. the letter she sent to Nam Jeon is before the exam (which she did not know the content) and turn out it's about bribing the examiner. The anonymous letter she send to lee Seong Gye is the one she put inside her rice bowl. She wrote the letter but her gisaeng best friend who sent it. this letter tells the bribe. She thought LSG will help and re do the exam. Little that she knew that LSG takes another way to cover this up. Which let Hwi to be sent to military
  14. Wow... what a detailed observation and explanation. I really applaud how detailed you observed this drama and come out with these theories. Edwark Park is always fishy... I have a feeling the reporter is a bait from Edward Park to get CDG and deliver the 'theory' to him. Hence his secretary said 'Now I know why you choose CDG.' I also have suspects about these 3 as the mole.
