  1. There is a beautiful clip on YT, showing Hapcheon Image Theme Park, the main film-location for Different Dreams , Mr. Sunshine and some other dramas: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glW6qCRcPwg
  2. I just started again with episode 8, so | can watch at least one episode every day till the end next week . This drama is not fit for patiently waiting a week to watch one by one. I am from Amsterdam: I wish our streetcars would show up as frequently as they do on this location ! They come every second
  3. Where is Seo Woo ? I am watching this drama again and impressed ( again ) by Seo Woo's very detailed acting. Many beautiful Korean actresses, but who can look so devilish and obsessed like her ? I watched Cinderella' Sister three times in the past and still think she and Moon Geun Young where absolutely top there , taking the viewer down in a whirlpool of emotions. Is there a reason why Seo Woo's thread in this topic is closed ?
  4. Indeed, the love of the King for Dong Yi seems to be a historical fact. Jang Ok Jung is a very good drama , also for the contrast that really fills up some gaps in the Dong Yi drama. But some comments showed that people never watched Dong Yi ;a negative idea about her as result.
  5. Because of Haechi , I finaly watched Jang Ok Jung. Dong Yi I watched several times , it is an all-time Favorite They are not written as a trilogy, but together they make very clear what really happened . King Yeongjo in Haechi talks a lot about his mother , who is Dong Yi / Choi Sook-Bin. And her low background in his roots, which he is not ashamed of. In the Dong yi-drama , she is praised as a friendly lovely person to all people , high or low ranks. King Sukjong , King Yeongjo 's father, loves her a lot. Also in articles on the net this is explained. In the Jang Ok Jung-drama , she is a calculating, shrewd and cold concubinne. How acurate are any of these drama's ?
  6. I am only at episode 11 now, and avoided reading previous posts here. Mainly a lurker, that's why. I love the great historical Kdrama's, because they are made and acted very well in every aspect. For entertainment. And for getting a grasp of the history of country I knew nothing about 10 years ago. Dong Yi is one of that dramas, watched it several times, and it took a few epiosdes before I realized what is shown in Haechi. Some romanticisation on the go, OK. But meanwhile , I will stop watching every so many minutes for sorting out through several sources what happened. Thanks also this forum . It is very helpfull, looking for the messages where people really explain what we see. Reason to watch Dong Yi again anyway. Terrrible things and menmade disasters happened somewhere else, often in Asia , Africa . On a comfortable distance. But the last 10 years I see the similarities of Joseon-politics and modern politics in Western cultures. The Art Of War, alive an a'kicking.
  7. I am from Holland, and got into Kdrama 10 year ago,thanks to a forumbuddy ( not drama-related) who lived in South Korea for a year at that time. She suggested I should try Korean TV or Movie for a change. Coffee Prince was a real discovery indeed, and I watched it several times after that . I have not enough time to visit any forums these days a lot. Coincidence, I landed on a Dutch site that started only 3 months ago, dedicated to Kdrama. The owner started watching Kdrama and Kmovies only last year, and was very impressed by Coffee Prince. It is still a pity Yoon Eun Hye, or the people working with her on several dramas after Coffee Prince, could not find back the right track for another serie on that level.
