[Drama 2010 ] Road Number One 로드 넘버원


Woundedheart

Recommended Posts

I don't like the ending. What was the writer attempting to say with this ending, I'm really confused. I thought the message of the Korean War being a "civil war" and a war that created broken families was adequately expressed by the:

Sgt. losing his family, by Soo Yeon losing both her brother and sister, the brother shooting his own sister, and the list of examples could go on and on with other minor role character storylines.

Where is the message that South Korea arose to become the fourth largest economy in the world, a first world country and not some third world country and did so in record breaking time as far as countries coming out of bloody wars go, and all built on the backs and protests of the great men and women who came out of the Korean War.

I thought a happy ending, a successful business for Jang Woo, raising a family, Tae Ho too starting a family with his new girlfriend, something like that would be the message of South Korea's rise to greatness.

I don't regret watching the drama and think So Ji Sub and Kim Ha Neul put up some of the best drama acting I've seen, but the ending just doesn't add up to me. I would be very interested in seeing a full directors cut to see what message was lost in editing.

BTW, m0use, I'm still working on you to become a SJS fan. :) The writer who wrote "Thank You"

also wrote MISA. I remember in an interview, she said she read a news about a man survived

a bullet in his head. That inspired her creating the plot in MISA that you find it hard to

believe....

HEH Charlesriver, I probably continue watching episode 4 of MISA after I get the picture of SJS as Jang Woo out of my head, only then can I have an unbiased assessment of the drama that made him a star. I remember reading the connection between the MISA and Thank You but the dramatic angle on the scenario of the lodged bullet still makes me cringe at the thought of Kdrama's typical storylines: fatal illness, amnesia, poor to rich story etc. The only thing I would finish this drama is for his relationship with his mom.

Otty, commenting based on what I've seen so far without subtitles, I feel this drama focuses on the tragedy of war--the actual displacement and separation of families between North and South. The DP added the black and white news reel footage to further express how family members still haven't found their love ones (M.I.A./death) even though throughout the drama the dialogue optimistically infers how there was belief at the time that for those who were involved in the war (from both sides) would reunite once the unification of Korea happened. Hence, you get the brother and sister supporting opposites sides but hope to meet again when the war is over. But, the unification never happened.

As for South Korea's rise in economy, I think the story must then expand how the US were involved socially and politically. South Korea is still occupied by the U.S. regardless whether one thinks it's independent or not. Occupying a country for military gains would be a controversial topic to address. The DP did hint how the nation/So. Korea has become affluent with the panoramic shots of the city's main square. Though, I think this scene was to depict how the times have changed... juxtaposing it with the dirt roads and nature of Jang Woo's hometown in the later parts.

I like the ending how it is, but I never thought of the theme for this drama was to show how people overcame the war and rise to become a prosperous nation. The South and North are still divided, the war isn't truly over.

To me, this drama speaks to me about the displacement of families and how each sides have loved ones living in opposite sides.

I would be greatly disappointed if the ending turned out the way you preferred otty.

m0use already explained far better than I ever could. This drama is about the cruelty of the civil war,

not about the progress S. Korea being made since the 625 war. It is apparent huge

progress has been made by the efforts of all the hard working people there. Yet it seems fewer

and fewer younger generations know or care about what happened 60 years ago in all the countries involved.

Will history repeat if nobody learns the mistakes from the past? I think this drama tries to

remind us all of that. In my opinion, current S. Korean government is enjoying the "free" lunch given by US

so they have no choice but at the front line of a new cold war forming in the region.

Wise or not is not for me to judge....

Some after thoughts and observations:

JW and SY each witnessed the other gunned down in front of their eyes!

:tears:

When TH threw away his mother's ring, he already knew his friendship to JW exceeding his

love to SY. YKS's eyes were full of emotion in this scene.

Watching old JW reunited with old TH was so so sad! I wonder if it's better off for JW

to die on that bridge that night instead of living in hell like situation for 59 years

in some prison camp north! What about SY of not knowing him living or dead all these years.

YIKES! It's just too sad!!!

I'm also so heartsick knowing so many Chinese families lost their loved ones in a foreign

country ending up in some mass graves! :crazy:

Coco, can I say how much I love you? HEH Thank you for the download of the last day of shooting. I noticed how KHN and SJS were teary-eyed; they must be really sad to let go of their characters. HEH, we finally got the confirmation that it was SJS giving the rabbit ears.

I'm even more sad after viewing the clip because the cast and crew put so much hard work and did a wonderful job but the Korean public didn't appreciate it. I love this drama and Jang Woo and Soo Yeon will forever remain in my heart whenever I watch this drama again with subtitles.

Thank you coco dear. You are the best really!

KHN's tears were nonstopping. We lived with RN1 for 10 weeks, felt so sad at the end.

Imagine how hard the whole crews felt! Even harder for the actors and actresses to let go

the characters yet they must. Despite of disappointing ratings, the experience from RN1

will be valuable as actor for SJS, YKS, and KHN. Let's see if MBC can break from the tradition

by rewarding really good performances instead of good money makers.

I heard that due to the weather was too cold during that time, Subbie was sick but he did not want the people who replace to film any action scene for him.

thanks m0use and sarvin for the link.

I'm on episode 8 so far. Just taking my time watching it. I'm really enjoying it so far. I like the battle scenes, very intense. The love triangle story between the three is OK. However, there is one part of the story I REALLY HATE. That's the whole promotion jealousy thing. Now, I've never been in a war, but I doubt that something like that really happens in a war, so much that one soldier will jeopardize the lives of others over trying to get a promotion.
