  1. Now what. I woke up this morning and there was nothing to watch. I loved this show because it make me think, it was smart and because I loved the leads. It didn't have all the annoying stuff so many K dramas seem to have now days. So what to do now that's it's over what should I watch. I am open to almost any Asian or Turkish drama if it is good. Help!
  2. I am going to add to all the ideas and theories because like most of you I am just not ready to let this one go. My first reaction was mixed ( in retrospect because I just didn’t want it to end. I want more) so I watched episode 16 again. This time because I knew that things were going to turn out fine, I could begin to dream. So Miss Writer and Netflix I want a second season. There is so much more to this story. If you need ideas there are a lot of us here who could help you out. Here are mine. Our king needs an heir and queen, they need to get married so go back in time to lay the groundwork for JTE to have a history in KOC, She could be Luna’s long lost twin. But in doing this you will find Luna’s back story They travel back in time to tell Lady’s Noh’s back story. I am sure that story would be interesting Travel to another parallel world to help there The King from an alternate world comes to our King’s world and causes problems which they must fix Something goes badly wrong in JTE’s ROK and the King and JTE must help fix that I am sure there are a lot of other story lines that everyone here could add. We need more time. We need a second season
  3. I have mixed emotions. The first half was great and I was so worried that they were going to kill one of them or have them lost to each other forever. But the last half felt like a quick wrap up of stories in preparation for a second season where they wander around the Universe solving all the unanswered stuff we never got to so while I love it I feel kind of let down. There were so many storylines that were never flushed out. It’s like they need more time to do the stories of the other characters, So when is the second season so we can really get to all of that. That is one of my complaints about the Netflix series. They have a habit of leaving the ending of a season half done. The did that with “Vagabon” . The storyline seemed to wrap up then they added just enough stuff so that you were left with a feeling that there should be more.
  4. I can’t believe we are down to the last hours until the end. My fellow monarchist, it was a lovely ride. I took a break from most Kdramas. They were just too formulaic, the love triangle, the rich guy poor girl evil mom or wanna be girlfriend. But this drama brought me back. Searching for a place where I could share it with others brought me here. You have made me laugh, challenged my thinking and supported my delusions. I haven’t been active in Soompi for a long time so I forgot just how much fun it is to hang out with people who are as passionate about a drama as I am. I have loved the play by play of the live stream but like others I am going to watch past episodes until the finale is posted on netflix. I think I am too afraid of the ending to read the play by play because I need to understand everything that happens and not just guess. I have my box of tissues ready, a little fried chicken and a good stiff drink so I am ready for the end. But before that I just want to say thank you to everyone it’s been wonderful.
  5. JTE is dead, no she's just laying on the forest road, no it's Luna, no it's not. JTE and Luna are the same but from different times, wait no that's not right because if Luna is JTE what happen to her double in the other world, no wait she is going to forget everything I mean JTE not Luna, no I met she will remember but the king will forget then what about Luna. You people are killing me! after 10 pages of back tracking all I know for sure is something is going to happen to someone in 1 days. According to a lot of you I will need a box or shipment of tissues, a good stiff drink and strong meds to get through the end of this drama. When will it be Friday,? or may be it's Saturday I JUST WANT A HAPPY ENDING
  6. I think it's more likely that Lady Noh is connected to the Kings' late Grandfather. She would have come during his rein and would have had to come through him. Also that is the time of LL birth so Lady Noh knows a lot more about everything. She has always protected the boy king, keeping him safe, hiding the flute and worrying about him. She knew his fate and what might come to pass. Whatever she told JTE will be important to the finale travel back in time. I think that JTE isn't in the past but goes back with LG to help him. JTE knows something key but until the reset doesn't work she will not realize what she knows. Both will go back to that time because whatever happened then will make their wish to save their love come true. ( I know wishful thinking but a girl's got to hang on to hope)
  7. you are crazy but for a brief moment when the King was saying good bye I had the same weird feeling. It was like he was telling her he was sorry and to live on, It had a very strange vibe. Not a son to mother figure but lover to love. Like he had left her behind before. So we are both crazy but this story is making us over think everything. Edited after reading @vangsweetie637 If Lady Noh is somehow JTE I will buy the drinks, so don' t worry we will both get good and drunk .
  8. I was gone for just a day and now I have to back track for like ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You people are killing me. As for my vote for the ending I went with what I want not what might happen so I vote for a wedding because I need something happy and positive. If they just stand there and stare at each other like in "Faith" I am throwing my lap top across the room, same thing if it's all a dream. and stomping my feet as well. If one or both die (which just may happen) I don't think I can take it, there will not be enough tissues in the world if that happens. Also ready to cry a river if one or both forget each other and or are separated forever (something else that just might happen.) Mostly I am almost afraid to watch the ending. I love this couple so I need need and can I say it again I NEED A HAPPY ENDING
  9. I have another what if. Yoyo child aka the flute told LG’s parallel mother that when the flute is joined and made whole inside the gate “It takes you to the moment when you wish to save yourself”. When she asked where they went, Yoyo child said “The night of treason” because “The king wished to save both worlds from the traitor” and “the traitor wished to save his foolish self from failing the coup”. What if this time the place where both can save themselves is not the night of the treason. They tried that already and it didn’t work. What if the flute takes them further back in time to another place that is the seed of this whole story. The true start of this story is when the traitor was born. If this is so then the year that the traitor was born is 70 years ago in 1950.That time period could be the scene of spoiler pictures that were seen a few weeks ago. Also JTE is key to this time travel. Remember when the two met in the between space and the flute was joined, her picture fell. It disintegrated and one of the seeds she left started to grow. The magic flowers grow and bloom after a cold frozen time blooming long after people think they will grow. JTE and the King have moved through heartbreak and a frozen time apart so if the symbolism is true it’s their time to survive. It’s time for their love to grow and bloom. If the flute can read a person’s wish then the King wants to save both worlds, but more than anything he’s wish is to find the door in the universe that will lead him back to JTE. He promised her that. LL is bitter, but in his heart what he wants most is to be important and not pushed aside because of the facts of his birth. If those facts can be changed then none of the things that play out need to have happened. There is an old saying “Be careful what you wish for you just might get it” In this case what we get is not what we or the main character expected but what the flute knows will work.
  10. I have been thinking about this. The King LG can’t advocate because the only acceptable heir to the throne was killed by LL. If nothing changes the timeline in a real way he needs to be in KOC. JTE is free to stay wherever the King is because she has left Luna behind to take her place. So JTE will meet up with the king in the between places. They will try to go back in time to the day of treason. Trying to change things on the day of treason will not work so that is why they have to go further back in time to the late 1940’s or early 1950. They go to the time of the King’s Grandfather because of something that happened at the time that Lady Noh came to the KOC from ROK. I think that is when this all started.That’s the only reason I can think of for the spoiler pictures of them in a different time that was so old fashion. As for the ending, if each ends in their own world without the knowledge of the other that is not a happy ending to me because who would the King meet to equal JTE certainly not Luna and even if JTE meets the King's counterpart in ROK it will not be the same man. I don’t care how Miss writer does it but I want JTE and the King to end up together as the people they are in some world somewhere in time.
  11. Hi just wanted to reach out and say thank you for your concern about us in the USA. It's a difficult time for many of us here. I am watching this show and hanging out here when I need a break from my real world. I love all the thoughtful theories and ideas. Love the playfulness. But under it all are some real life lessons. History is important, understanding it more so. Just wish a reset was possible in the real world. ok sorry to let the real world seep in but just wanted to say thanks
  12. I had to wait to post this review because episode 15 was one long very sad goodbye. I have no more predictions about what will be. Everything is in place for whatever will happen next week. I thought we might come down to a last desperate choice. A choice that would have to happen even if the two halves of the flute were joined together. This is a show of symbols. Just too many clues pointed to that. The use of the color red symbolic of blood was sprinkled throughout almost every episode. LL worked with the color every time he was shown in a time stop; the color red as he worked in the dark room, the fact that LL was sprayed with red blood every time he killed someone. The connection of red and blood has also been a part of the visuals for the King as well. From the first episode where the boy king’s feet and clothes are covered in the red blood of his father on the night of treason to the blood red color on the clothes he wore for his court portrait. Even his epic battle with LL’s minions in Episode 12 when like LL he ends covered in blood. The stage has been set for blood to be the determining factor. I foolishly thought that because the blood of the king seeped into the flute when it was broken his blood would bind the flute to him. What I forgot is that LL’s blood also seeped into the flute so now both men are needed to set things right. Too much has happened for a simple joining of the two halves of the flute. “Our worlds have already gone so wrong. There are so many reasons to change the past and that is the only way.” So now we are at this last despite journeying towards the King’s destiny. He has said his goodbyes in two worlds. Clothed in the ceremonial outfit he wore when he said his final goodbye the day he told her how deeply he loved her when he gave her the forget me not flowers, our King is walking toward his destiny. The old prince told him what would happen if he followed his fate. The King has accepted that “the footsteps “he” takes by risking “his” life is what is his fate.” To follow his destiny there is no other choice because there is “a place he needs to reach even at the risk of his life”. JTE is also moving toward her destiny. She fought against her destiny and this moment but the time has come and she too must take “the footsteps “ that will fulfill her destiny. Luna will take her place in the world of the ROK. She has also said her goodbyes. Whatever happens she will face it with the man she loves because she has no other choice. Her destiny is tied to his. Whether they end up in the past on the day of treason or farther back in time, I hope they are together. I am not convinced we will get our happy ending now. Despite the symbolism of the flowers, seeds, promises and talk of other doors in the universe, the way ahead is clouded with death. Much of the symbolism is tied to resurrection and rebirth. It is hard to have a resurrection and rebirth without death. I am not sure if that will feel like a happy ending to me but we shall see.
  13. OMG This is not how it will end with the door closed and them apart. I am going to need more then a truck load of tissues if that is true. Miss writer better fix this or off with her head. Thanks for the play by play off I go waiting for netflix
  14. I watched the episode again. I have questions that might get us to a happy ending so I am looking for answers that I may have missed. What I know King LG is working his way back to the present but is leaving clues and messages that might help. Both Luna and the Prime Minister want the flute for their own needs and both know that it has the power to let people travel to another world. The flute that the King has is slowly breaking off The LL of the day both went back in time is dead and his piece of the flute has flaked away and is gone. That LL is dead going forward but the LL of the past who killed his future self is still alive until the point of his death so that LL would still have a piece of the flute In spoiler pictures posted we saw scenes that looked like both JTE and The king had gone to the past: back to what might have been the late 1940’s or early 1950’s For everything to workout the flute must be reunited so it can play Once something happens and someone dies it seems that dead is dead from that point on, So here are my questions and thoughts What if knowing what our King knows he is trying not only to get back to JTE but also to save the two worlds so he is working on a plan that will help do that What if part of the plan takes into account the greed/ need that Luna and the Prime Minister have that makes them what the flute What if both would betray LL before he is killed and one of them takes his half of the flute Or What if while doing that LL’s half of the flute is destroyed so the only place where the flute can be found is in the past So what if the last despite plan involves both JTE and the KIng going back to the only place where they know the flute exist in history which would be the day that Lady Noh left at the time of Korea during the war to go to the KOC. JTE knows the details of when Lady Noh left and from where (that would be around the time of the spoiler pictures) Now I am not saying any of this will happen but what if……... or since I am loser, my brain cells are dead from trying to figure out all of this and none of this is going to happen, but what if.............
