The first Choi Jin Hyuk drama I enjoyed was "Pride & Prejudice." I watched Fated to Love You too..But wasn't that much fan of it. So, I started PP merely because of it's name- interested to know why a legal drama was named after PP- the novel.

 

For a legal drama I found the drama to be slow and steady.. But I love the journey..I enjoyed the dimensional characters there(even liked the antics of lady prosecutor on the bad side)..Loved the message of the drama..above all I loved little Han Yeol Moo- koo Dongchi moments..Those were short but sweet. They were too adorable together. I've watched the drama twice. I've always replayed their couple moments whenever YouTube suggested me those. Now that I'm following Sunny-Woobin moments in YT, it again started suggesting me PP moments..and I again end up watching them.

(Well I enjoyed Devilish Joy and Tunnle too..but didn't search YT for those dramas that much)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2DUC8X4FL0

This one above is most probably the my most replayed scene from the drama- Dong Chi wanting to spend sometime with Yeol Moo before he jumps in revealing all truth. Yeol Moo sincerly expressing her feelings. She's soo cute.. Love when Dong Chi said "Andee jii..Nomu Chuaa seo.." I was like -" I don't know who I find more adorable-Choi Jin Hyuk or Beak Jin Hee!"

 

I thought Koo Dong Chi was a bit difficult character too like Chun Woo Bin..While CWB have to be stoic yet kind hearted, KDC had to balance playfulness, seriousness and thoughfulness. Choi Jin Hyuk did a great job playing Koo Dong Chi. 

I know many people who loves legal drama but has never watched Pride & Prejudice because it's not that popular.. That's why I always had a soft spot for this drama.

 

Hello Nice to see here.  I saw your posting earlier but I got busy till now.  I was happy to hear when you mentioned about P&P in TLE.   P&P was a pet project for PD who is an MBC in-house director. Choi Daniel was to supposed to play the lead but at the last minute he backed out so CJH got the role and then they recruited Choi Min Soo.  So the writer had to rewrite the script to fit for new recruits.  
I think PD & writer picked novel-P&P’s name to draw the public attention at the beginning on the internet as novel-P&P is immensely popular in Korea.  haha  Still the writer kept the essence of novel-P&P in the drama.   Btw if you are interested I can talk about P&P some more later.  It’s too bad you didn’t find P&P during broadcast. You would have fun in the drama thread.
 You are  very good at talking about a drama.  sigh  It’s always  difficult for me to say what is in my head.  So I appreciated very much when you joined TLE and talked about WB.    have good day :)

Wishing Choi Jin Hyuk a very Happy Birthday and lots of good projects ahead. And make sure the character you play smiles at least once every episode.. I (I'm sure it's not just me) love your eye smile.. :wub:

Thanks @booha:)

Good to know the beckground story of PP. I'm glad Choi Daniel backed out. :P Count me in when talking about PP. I'm in love with that one and can't recommend it enough.

 

As for why they named it as Pride and Prejudice, I have my own interpretation after watching the drama. The drama showed the fight between the Pride of the Prosecutors and Prejudice of Prosecution. The team was going after powerful people in the prosecution who have the whole system under their control. But the whole team with guidance of Cheif Moon and parsistance of Dong Chi and yeol Moo, fought with their all to reveal the truth for justice. At first it seemed quite impossible but they hold on to their pride as honest prosecutors and kept fighting...also Han Yeol Moo misunderstood Koo Dong Chi like Elijabeth misunderstood Mr. Darcy.. That's just my own interpretation though. :lol:

 

It'd have been nice if could watch PP ongoing too..But at that time I was a newbie who used to avoid watching dramas ongoing. But then the comes a time when you get so into K-drama that you can't resist watching ongoing drama with favourite casts. Even now I try not to watch too many ongoing at a time. Watching more than 2 ongoing drama is bad for my sanity. I remember I watched Tunnle just when it has 4 edisode left. Because it was a mistery thriller I wanted to wait. I watched Devilish Joy when it was half completed.

 

I'm not that good at talking either but thanks for liking my rambling on TLE. Let's wish Na Wang Shik will get his happy ending that he deserves no matter how many more miracle they need to create for that. Well, Gong Ma Sang was supposed die too, but he didn't. Hope Wang Shik will survive this fight too. :D

Thank you for CJH birthday posting   :)

So much suspense about the fate of WS and others.   To ponder over so many of would-be or would-be-not till Wed.  That’s why it’s fun to watch kdrama with soompi.  We can blow out any kind of steam here with others.       Wonder if the writer will declare an extension for TLE at the last minute??  

PS  We just had  a winter-get-away vacation in Orlando Fl. We are heading back home(north suburb Chicago) and on the way we stopped to see my sis(Atlanta Ga) and had a plan to be home by Tuesday.  But it got delayed another day until Wednesday because of a snow forecast in Chicago.  Yeah it’s always hard to prepare for  long traveling in winter.   At least we weren’t caught in a major snow storm on the road which can be very inconvenient.   
It was hard to leave 70 degree sunny Fl.  haha   A cold reality is waiting for us soon. iky

Btw, anyone here loves watching CJH and JNR in behind the scene? They're so comfortable around each other. :D

 

 

 

Yes wouldn’t it be nice if the writer would have them acting like that later as a married couple in TLE. :)

Thank you chingu It looks like CJH is done with TLE.  I guess I have to wait to see what the writer will do with his character.  

 

**I don’t know how to respond with this late news. CJH will not appear in the extended TLE eps.

Choi Jin Hyuk Unable To Appear In Final Episodes Of “The Last Empress” Due To Schedule

Feb 14, 2019
by R. Jun

Choi Jin Hyuk will not be appearing in the extended portion of SBS’s “The Last Empress” due to scheduling conflicts.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that “The Last Empress” would be extended to 52 episodes, four 30-minute episodes longer than its original 48. As a result, the finale will air next week on February 21.

February 15, a source from SBS said to My Daily, “Choi Jin Hyuk, who is playing the role of Wang Sik/Woo Bin, has finished filming all of his parts through episode 48. Due to his schedule, he will not be appearing in the episodes airing on February 20 and 21.”

The source added, “We sincerely thank Choi Jin Hyuk, who put his all into his character, and the remaining actors and staff will do their best. We ask for your continued love and support.”

 

Choi Jin Hyuk’s agency, G-Tree Creative, also made the announcement, saying, “Due to scheduling conflicts, Choi Jin Hyuk is not appearing in [‘The Last Empress’] after yesterday’s episodes. Because of a previously scheduled fan meeting in Taiwan, it was unavoidable that he wrap up filming.”

Jin Hyuk: There are some people who have already read the article ... I had my last appearance in yesterday broadcast, so I will not appear next week.   
Thank you very much for the viewers who watched it, and my fans who cheered hard…

Hi booha, thanks for sharing this. Like you, we just have to wait & see what will happen to his character in the story. I really don't dig long drama EPs but since CJH is in it, I have no choice but to watch this drama. :lol:

I'm disappointed with the news.. :tears: How could the lead actor be absent on the final episode? Are they really going to kill his character so that Sunny and Emperor will be the end game? I guess CJH-JNR as drama couples are really not meant to be.. Haha

Hi namjiho the writer/s should have stuck to the original no. of episodes...   How can we expect Jang Nara & Choi Jin Hyuk to have happy ending in the drama? I had hope to see their love to prosper. Why shouldn't they keep it at 48EP?  There were extended dramas where it loses the steam & it became draggy. I hope that they didn't extend it.  CJH screen time was already not much considering being a lead in the drama ...sigh...  Even in EPs47-48 he didn't have much of a roll in. What kind of ending that the drama will have without the male lead?  Where is the ending gonna go there then....???? I somewhat lose interest anymore to continue watching..... but, I'm curious to see the ending, though.  Will this be a sad ending without him?  What's the point to extend the episode if the lead actor could not appear? It sounds as if it’s going to be an ending no one will enjoy. Awww man .... As I've mentioned above in my post that I was happy to watch this drama because CJH was in it. Did they not know his schedule before they decided to extend it? So, why even do the extended episodes if he’s not going to appear in them? I'm sad of this news..... I'm really disappointed.  Does that mean they’re killing him off? Ahhh.........no please ...  I wonder if ratings would decline or increase because of this new development.  :o^_^

Well I have very mixed feelings about the news.  CJH has built his career on overcoming adversity.   He isn’t a person who makes any decision lightly so I have to trust he did his best under such circumstances.  
Btw  I have a feeling TLE will get a boost from CJH’s news.  Because next week is the last one, now everyone wants to know what will happen with CJH’s character.  Also I’m glad to see so far the TLE team and CJH’s agency seem acting friendly with each other about CJH’s early departure.  After Taiwan FM(2/28) I hope he will get a good rest for a long time.   
I knew why he took TLE.  As a maturing actor, he felt a challenge in playing  such a character(WS/WB) which seemed to be so different from his previous ones.  For myself I was uneasy about his new look at the beginning but now I’m completely into WB, such dashing WB.   haha    So much that now I’m hoping he will play a similar WB character in his next drama. :blush:

Hahaha  yes you are right  maybe JNR and CJH aren’t meant to be a drama couple after all.     At the start of TLE, I didn’t expect much from JNR-CJH because TLE is a revenge drama and Sunny(JNR) is a married woman.  But over time, even though their scenes together weren’t many,  these two managed to create  such indelible chemistry for the characters that I couldn’t help but be drawn into them.  Thank god CJH changed so much for the character in TLE that I never felt I was watching another DJ-GMS.    So I feel heartbroken about no happy ending for TLE-Sunny-WB.  But I will recover soon and want to think about our mabbeum couple. ^_^

Hey @booha, when's the fan meeting?

 

 

  Hello   I appreciated your tireless effort to show others about Sunny-WB.  Joo Won should know how lucky he is to have a fan like you.  If his next drama will be romcom, and if I’m not too busy then  I have to follow your fangirling for his love line.  haha 
PS CJH’s Taiwan FM will be in 2/28.  Yeah CJH’s FM scheduling excuse is just pretense.

Thank you. 

I know I tend to get a bit protective of characters I really like..I keep talking in their defense as long as I think I should. It was nice talking on behalf of my new favourite drama couple Sunny-WB.  Their character chemistry touched my heart. And of course it was a delight to watch Jang Nara and Choi Jin Hyuk together on and off screen.

 

 

The schedule excuse, no appearance specifically on extension everything indicates a discord. I'm sad this happened in TLE. I hope CJH will take a rest pick a nice project because he seemed to be very busy in last half of 2018 with DJ and TLE. He seemed to be not a fan of action gener as he said so in interview. So most probably he will pick a rom(com) drama next. If I'm not too busy may be I can join in that thread too there too. 

 

 

About fangirling for Joo Won's drama, I can't wait. I hope the love line there would be amazing too so I can ardently talk in their defense. :lol:

 

Edit:

It looks like Oh Arin uploaded some pictures of last filming as a farewell message to CJH. such cute pictures!
