  1. I think I was at ep 25 then skipped and watched 30 to see how it ends. I could sort of follow along and it made sense so though I was sad, it was ok. And I have to say Fu Rui is an awesome character. @skibbies there's an alternate ending? is it out? where can we watch and how was it? On a side note, I watched Jing Tian on a BTS clip and heard her talk. I remember someone said here she was overdubbed but her voice sounds quite similar to the voice on the drama...I still kinda wish they worked it out instead and let her dub it herself.
  2. I had a feeling she was overdubbed. There really is a distinct difference in sound quality when it shifts from QF talking to her. I wish they found a way, maybe she could have lowered her voice, so it's still her. It disrupts the flow a bit and it sounds unnatural. Thank you to those who gave explanations and spoilers. Helps understand what's going on. But I am a bit confused...
  3. Hello to the thread! I got sucked into this series that I'm rushing ahead even without the eng subs. I even watched the live premiere of the episodes with eng subs a couple of times! LOL I've never done that before. But I'm hooked into the mystery and both leads were chosen well. They're doing great with their roles, as well as Yang Fiuren (?) and the little boy. They're great too. Did they dub the actors with voice actors? Maybe not everyone... I wonder which ones are dubbed? The kid isn't I think. And sometimes like when they were outside the cave, the audio echoes and seemed to
  4. I took it as BH not knowing how to handle these intense emotions such as longing, worry, romantic love Bec he has always been kind of shallow, a playboy , and so would never have felt these before and didn't know that it was going to be feel that way and didn't know how to handle them esp since he was aware the danger to CJ was very real. It felt consistent to me with his own journey and not necessarily SY's influence. But then, maybe you are right and this is the production's attempt to subtly (so very subtle, it is almost non-existent) show SY is still around.
  5. Knowing they didn't change the fact that CJ died young and their child died too, in some weird skewed way, it was probably better bec he wouldn't be pining, feeling like something is missing and wondering about why his wife is different for long (though 12 years is long enough) It is almost impossible for CJ to be certain that a different soul inhabited the Queen and that this is the soul he fell in love with. So, it wouldn't be a stretch to think that he will love SY bec like KJH said, he thinks it's his wife. But I still think that he will probably always feel something missing
  6. Just some of my thoughts on the series as whole. Like @kwayteow_mama said, lots of folks gravitated to this series bec of the story's complexity. I’m one of them. I very rarely watch korean historical dramas but I was curious how they were going to tackle such an interesting predicament: imagine a modern playboy travels through time, ends up stuck in a woman's body who just happened to be chosen to be queen in restrictive conservative Joseon. I anticipated how they were going to tackle the ff: · The mechanics of time travel · The fish out of water aspect with modern man i
  7. great way to put it. The way they shot that ending, it really isn't clear exactly what JBH remembers of his whole experience and what he feels. They really toned it down and minimized the impact on him, esp considering that night they had in the mountains when both were sober, both knowing what they felt for each other. There should be some grief at least, if not for the love lost, then the real friends he lost too. When SY said that maybe the inner her was finally unleashed or revealed (sorry paraphrasing, can't remember exact words), it grated on me a bit. It seems lik
  8. I thought the Korean industry is becoming more open to LGBT themes. I watched 2.5 Korean shows recently that were straight up BL. They were web dramas and were quite short but there have been more that I haven't even seen. Maybe not prime time network yet but wasn't TVN a more progressive network anyway? and it's cable right? So I thought there was a chance ... I thought SK was finally joining the BL bandwagon that started decades ago in Japan, quite common in Thailand, some in Taiwan, derailed in China bec of the ban, spread in the Philippines and now starting in SK.
  9. @aislingposted the soompi article talking about how SY being in there the whole time doesn't make sense. I always thought SY was not there anymore, that after helping recover her memories for BH as a final act, she's completely gone, perhaps to be reborn. I didn't see a separate, distinct consciousness from beginning to half of ep 20. It could be explained that the memories were stored in the brain within the body now inhabited by BH, the skills in musical instrument etc can be explained by muscle memory. So I thought SY was gone for good. I didn't see a distinct separate c
  10. Exactly! On one hand they're implying that he changed into a more selfless, law abiding person by turning whistleblower b and yet showing that he has not changed his playboy ways trying to score with that lady in his place of work, in the same scene! So which is it? Did he or did he not change and if he did, why did he change before the event that started that change in the first place?
  11. Like others, even if Mr Queen has ended a week ago, I'm still thinking about it. But reading posts here and writing my painfully long posts (apologies to those who've read them LOL) has helped me get some distance. But I will add a few more thoughts that I didn't before . I remember a couple of WTH moments (aside from the incomprehensible ending, that is.): * When SY and CJ met finally met by the lake after running around missing each other, CJ noted that she was back to speaking in a formal way to him and was she planning a surprise (I don't know the exact w
  12. LOL! As I've gotten older, my patience is much more limited for these kinds of things. I haven't watched a drama live as it aired in a long time bec of this. I even read reviews and comments on the ending before I start one now. I don't mind being spoiled but I do mind wasting hours watching something that will just ruin my day.
  13. If anyone influenced BH to be less selfish, more empathetic and more actively caring abt others, it would be CJ. He's the perfect example of how to be selfless and always thinking about others and putting the welfare of his people before his own.
  14. Just a quick comment on this. Abt HY not staying loyally by her side if SY was truly cruel. Well, the maids in this drama seem very loyal and trained to be so. The GQD's maid remained loyal even after she was not longer in power and we all know the GQD is a lot more vicious and cruel than any other character in the show. She had her own grandson killed, the previous king, to keep her power! And HJ's maid remained loyal even while she was being tortured. So it's not a good way to gauge it. But I didn't say she was cruel. What I pointed out was her choice of being cruel to ot
