  1. @ShaNana, I’m not positive, but in an earlier episode, the other official admitted to plotting treason at another time in the past, but gave up the idea because something happened. So I don’t know if that’s why? I hear you, some things are very confusing. But it’s all about how people/politicians interpret things. I’m guessing that the messages being conveyed is like how you think, that it’s all about the choices you make in life. This was pointed out in the scene with Park Moon Su and Wi Byung Gi.....PMS pointed out to WBG that if he had chosen to live his life cleanly, he would not be in this situation. The thirst for power or fame sometimes leads people on the wrong path, and this is clearly illustrated in this drama. Regarding Prince Mil Poong, he is portrayed as a very evil character. His expression after killing the guard, and rubbing his face right after with his blood, really creeped me out. He is ruthless and evil to the core!!! The part that bothers me the most is that he killed so many people, yet got away with it, even if they knew. He was never arrested for any of those deaths, including the death of Yi Hwon. And now it seems that he is responsible for poisoning the King. Ugh!
  2. @gerrytan8063, Thank You for all your answers, I went back to the pages you referred to, to read your posts about the historical facts. I wasn’t much of a history buff until recently, so I admire you for your knowledge! It really helps to know the history to understand this drama. Never thought I’d get into the political intrigue! I am suggesting to my husband that he watch this.....he usually watches Japanese dramas, and usually about the samurai. He also likes Game of Thrones......so I think Haechi is up there in caliber, right? Maybe even better! At least Haechi doesn’t show all the sleeping around that goes on.....which is good, I don’t need to see that.
  3. I am not a usual fan of saeguk dramas because it is always more about scheming and politics, the plot for power. I was more of a romance fan......but now it seems I’m switching over! I love this drama, the storyline is so interesting!! Very good writing and acting, am really enjoying it! some people mentioned that YJ was excluded.....but her accident was sudden, so I think it couldn’t be helped. Hopefully she’ll be able to return soon, and it’ll all be good! Yi Tan and Yoon Young are birds of a feather that stick together! Yoon Young has just as much a lust for power as Yi Tan, and ultimately, she will go down with him! His methods of trying to take Yi Geum down are very underhanded.....despicable! Can anyone tell me why these royal characters have multiple names? Yeoning, Yi Geum, and ? I forget the third name, is one and the same person? Why do they have so many names, and when do you call them what??? If you just walk into the story, it can be very confusing!!!
  4. @annie1234....I think his pronunciation is good because I think they said he studied in the U.K.? I was just thinking that he speaks English better than me! I live in Hawaii, locals speak Pidgin English here. I guess it’s something like using satoori in Korea? Lol
  5. Wow, this drama is so unpredictable! Thank you all whom are participating in this forum, for keeping me posted when I don’t have time to sit and watch. I love reading all your thoughts, speculations and predictions! Always fun to hang out with like minded people! Who else besides me thinks Jang Na-ra is a vampire? Haha I mean that in a good way, my son refers to people who just don’t age as vampires.....and she definitely is one of them!! She always looks the same, so young and beautiful! Someone mentioned earlier on this forum about a role that SSR played in which he was a good guy...it was “Trot Lovers” which featured Jung Eun-Ji and Ji Hyun-woo! If any of you like him, you should check it out.....he was really a nice guy in that one. Sort of played a “White Knight” role, in fact!
  6. @hushhh, 1) CW’s biological Mom is deceased, but her Husband chose to live with her mother and got remarried to SJ. 2) Good question, why DID CW marry WS? He’s such a loser!!! 3) JY is Jae-hak’s adopted son....SJ came into the marriage with JY. That was part of the problem, the grandma didn’t like him at first and was mean to JY. 4) Not sure when or how JH met SJ. 5) JY is the only one not biologically related to CW and JH.
  7. @angelwingssf, glad to hear it’s not only me! I tend to fast forward scenes of CW’s useless husband with his sidekick, most scenes with the MIL, the lawyer son, his ex, and Jy’s ex. I’m with you, only into the main story, but they are really dragging it. Upon watching with subs....I saw the part where CW went to Thank the detective and he told her about the non-matching dna, that’s why I thought it was messed up and got confused. It’s very annoying to hear the halmoni always thanking the evil stepmother, when she’s such an evil person! Ugh.
  8. @angelwingssf, Thank you, I must have missed that part. I fast forward a lot, as you can tell. Lol. I don’t know about anyone else, but I was trying to read JY’s expression every time they flashed on his face when CW was at their home and they all sat around together. I feel like he may be slightly disappointed? Because I think he sees CW as a woman. How junk is it that she is now his long lost sister? I want CW’s no good husband to be outed, along with her lame MIL! That woman is just as awful as the evil stepmother.....or maybe not, since she doesn’t “hide” her face like the stepmother does. Too many villains!
  9. Just got through watching raw......the evil stepmother is STILL at it.....did she do something with DNA again? They are saying that CW is not the missing daughter? OMG, I’m not sure I can handle this.....I don’t like it when evil prevails....they should have the Dad and CW go together to a DNA lab and have it tested right then and there!!!
  10. This drama has such great “feels”! I feel so bad for MD, he really loves KS, but it’s sooo obvious that he’s not the one who has her heart fluttering. Too much familiarity, maybe??? Going to Seoul seems exciting to her now, but she is too pure and innocent to survive in Yoo Baek’s world. This is his attraction to her, her purity and innocence. We can already see the changes in YB, especially about his jeans! He initially went crazy when he saw what halmoni did, then he thought better of it and let it go. To me, that was HUGE for him. His former narcissistic self would have protested much more, and NOT have worn the jeans, much less with the patches on! I thought it was funny, yet very sweet of him to accept the heart with which halmoni patched them. YB has met a woman who is NOT after his money, nor his fame.......she is just herself, very comfortable in her own skin and completely selfless. KS gave up her dreams because of her love for halmoni....how sweet is that? The more YB learns about KS, the deeper he falls in love with her. And wants to become a better person because of her. But taking her to Seoul, in his opinion, is opening up the world to her...which I think will cause the angst that’s yet to come. I’m interested to see how all of this will affect KS, and how their relationship will progress. I wonder if YB will be able to give up his world????
  11. @maribella, Spot on! That we will be frustrated again and again, because I already am! Lol. Seriously, Jy’s Mom, the evil stepmother, is REALLY evil, so greedy and clever, isn’t she? How desperate and greedy can a person be? To sabotage all of CW’s as well as her husband’s efforts to find each other! I am getting sick and tired of her fooling everyone and getting away with her sabotage efforts! This last one she feigned an illness...how lame!
  12. @msmy, I agree with you....once the basics of the story is set up, the plot gets dragged out. The last few episodes, we’ve been watching JY’s Mom and grandmother basically abuse CW. His Mother, in particular, is busy thwarting Cw’s and the dad’s efforts to find each other, that’s basically what we’ve been watching for the past so many episodes. So I feel like if I miss a few episodes, no big deal cuz it’s the same old, same old. Ugh....
  13. @uripuppies, in answer to your question about CW and JY having the same father.....technically, the answer is no. Mr. Choi was first married to CW’s Mom who passed away, so he came into the marriage with THE B***CH with CW, and she came into the marriage with JY. So once CW is reunited with the family, she and JY are stepsister-stepbrother, no blood ties. Which is just as forbidden in Korean culture. Isn’t that sad?????
  14. @UnniSarah, ohhh ok, I remember that now. The chairwoman was SUPER upset that her DIL lied, so she’s quite suspicious of her and her actions now, isn’t she? I saw that scene, I get what you’re saying. The Chairwoman did say that she doesn’t like lies. Wait till she finds out just HOW MUCH her DIL has been lying and keeping that dark secret all these past 33 years!!!!
  15. @UnniSarah, what do you mean the chairwoman knows not to trust her daughter in law? I feel like I missed something. I watched it raw, but I skip a lot of scenes of the characters I don’t like...I tried to watch with subs, but my streaming site is messed up....so I must have missed the scene/scenes that gave you that idea. Can you enlighten me, please? That DIL is something else, it’s very frustrating to watch how she’s getting away with her evil ways. Besides abandoning CW in the past, her continued attempts at thwarting their efforts to find her is sooooo despicable! To even go next door and ask them to move, is way beyond a sane person. She’s nuts!!!! If this his angst continues, I may have to drop watching it for awhile, because it only makes me angry and frustrated! CW has too many bad people surrounding her, #1 is her husband and his awful family!!!!
