@elan1, I'm not talking about helpless crying but lack of intelligence. OK, saving the 12 yo girl was an impulsive act, but before that she was about to kill the King of Joseon (!). And no plans of escape, no explanations... just staying there, blank, just waiting to be executed (not before a long and nasty torture session, I guess).


This is a natural behavior. I would stay blank too, you would stay and many people would do the same. But then there comes Nok-du or the handsome chef guy and solves the situation in just two minutes. I want to see that resolution and intelligence in a woman... oh, wait, the village's mistress was also smart: it's always KSH's character who is lacking, at least since Go Eun-byeol and Kim Hyun-ji.


Anyway, just two episodes. I really hope this is going to be better for JDD and for us Kim So-hyun followers.


I see what you are saying and I agree that I wish she had more smarts. Dong Joo Joo was described early on before the show aired as an impulsive character, not afraid to say what she thinks. Unfortunately she may lack Intelligence in certain areas, But she makes up for in other departments such as being willing to fight for injustice despite her limits.

Jang Dong Yoon And Kim So Hyun Begin To Build Friendship In âTale Of Nok-Duâ


Jang Dong Yoon And Kim So Hyun Begin To Build Friendship In “Tale Of Nok-Du”

KBS’s newest drama “Tale of Nok-Du” has shared exciting stills for its upcoming episodes!

“Tale of Nok-Du” is a romantic comedy set in the Joseon era. The drama tells the story of Jeon Nok Du (Jang Dong Yoon), who disguises himself as a woman to enter a mysterious all-female community, and Dong Dong Joo (Kim So Hyun), a gisaeng-in-training who wants to be anything but a gisaeng (female courtesan). The drama had a successful premiere as it recorded 5.6 and 7.1 percent ratings, placing No. 1 among other Monday-Tuesday dramas in its time slot.

The stills released on October 1 show Nok Du and Dong Joo enjoying each other’s company while doing laundry. Yul Moo (Kang Tae Oh), who is a hopeless romantic for Dong Joo, is also spotted attempting to make her try a Korean shaved ice dessert he made. However, he is soon interrupted by Nok Du.


The stills also hint at a secret the all-female community is hiding from the rest of the world. An organization as known as Moo Wol Dan is holding a sketch of a man they are in search of. Nok Du is also spotted wearing the same uniform as the organization, but he is watching the situation from behind a bush. Anticipation is high on whether or not Nok Du, who has entered the all-female community with hopes to uncover the truth, will find a lead that will take him one step closer to solving the mystery.


The production team said, “In episodes 3 and 4, which will air today, Nok Du will officially begin to adjust to surroundings of the all-female community. As we have also hinted at Nok Du and Dong Joo’s journey to sharing one room, the fascinating romantic tension between the two will also unfold.”

The upcoming episodes of “Tale of Nok-Du” will air on October 1 at 10:00 p.m. KST.

"Historical Goddess" Kim So Hyun Transformation from "Love Alarm" to "Tale of Nokdu"

Kim So Hyun, who is labeled as the "historical goddess" for her outstanding performance during historical Korean dramas has been gaining high expectations from the netizens where the actress is expected to show her different charms.

Not too long ago, Kim So Hyun wrapped up a Korean drama released through Netflix titled, "Love Alarm". The actress showed her more mature side with the deep theme of the drama including her kissing scene with Song Kang on the premiere episode of the drama.

This time, Kim So Hyun shared what the viewers should expect and anticipate with her role. The actress said, "I think the strong characters in the strange space of the widow could be fun. Furthermore, my trademark on the drama is my asymmetrical short hair. "Kim So Hyun then revealed that there's a reason behind her character, why she will have short hair. 


Meanwhile, Kim also expressed her thoughts about the drama, "I haven't realized that the drama will be released early. I really hope that we will get to hear good and positive feedback as we, (the cast and the production team) have been working hard together since the hot summer. "

On the contrary of "Love Alarm", Kim will be playing a historical-comedy centered drama, which is somewhat new for the actress to be seen doing humorous scenes, wherein she has been doing a lot of romantic and melodramas, as well as pure dramas.  She hopes that "I hope you will enjoy watching the drama, with a light heart."


"Tale of Nok Du" will revolve around the story of Jeon Nok Du, portrayed by Jang Dong Yoon who is a nobleman and will pretend to be widowed woman, for he hates to be in an arranged marriage, and Dong Dong Ju, portrayed by Kim So Hyun, who despise being a gisaeng though she does not have any choice.

The two will meet in the widow village. Dong Ju will then found out the secret of Nok Du and upon hearing his reasons behind pretending, she will do her best to save him and it will be broadcasted by KBS every Monday and Tuesday at 22:00 KST.

4 Things We Loved & 2 Things We Hated About The “Tale Of Nok-Du” Premiere

Landing strong rating numbers is a sure sign a drama is off to a smashing start and rightfully so! “Tale of Nok-Du” dives headfirst into the story of a young man named Nok Du (Jang Dong Yoon) who is forced to disguise himself as a woman in order to infiltrate a mysterious village run by widows and uncover the riddle behind his true identity. His journey is intertwined with that of Dong Dong Ju (Kim So Hyun), a gisaeng-in-training (female courtesan) who clearly has her own agenda and aspirations.

From the teasers and stills, I had expected the drama to be quite tense (imagine all the potential oopsies moments!) and thrilling, and I must say, “Tale of Nok-Du” sure has delivered all of that. With the extra perks of busting my gut every few minutes and inducing starry-eyed sighs, this drama has got me hooked! Here’s what I loved and hated from the first four episodes.

Warning: Spoilers for the premiere episodes below.

LOVED: Nok Du’s successful disguise

Playing disguise is an old trope, but not all dramas that play this card do it well. Some dramas featured women only changing their hairstyles to be disguised as men, with makeup still outlining their feminine features instead of obscuring them. “Tale of Nok-Du” does exceptionally well in this aspect; we aren’t just getting a man in a pretty pink hanbok, but he fully commits to the pretty pink make-up, airy bangs, and high-pitched voice to pull off the disguise.


Nok Du’s transformation from a chiseled (those abs don’t lie) man into a blushing lady who wins the hearts of men is gold, and I’m loving that look of pure shock and disgust he makes every time a suitor tries to get a little handsy. Fingers crossed that Nok Du doesn’t drop the ball soon!


Also, toes crossed that Nok Du drops that makeup tutorial, ‘cause boyyy that’s one look we’re going to have to come back to for that spring-summer glow!

LOVED: The budding friendship between Nok Du and Dong Ju

You can bet that things didn’t get off on a good start for these two. I mean, meeting and then landing in jail together doesn’t exactly make for the best bonding material, but I’m excited to report that they are on their way to a super cute dongsaengunnie (younger sibling-older sister) relationship! Despite initially grousing that the other person is a pain and bother, this has become sort of like playful banter for them as they grudgingly care for each other anyway.

The absolute cherry on the cake is also how such caring moments swing from aww to oof in a matter of seconds with Dong Ju sometimes coming close to exposing Nok Du’s gender with her innocent kind gestures. Read: Getting flung to the other side of the room just for being good-hearted and trying to remove Nok Du’s pants to apply herbs on “her” burnt bottom. Oof!


HATED: That Nok Du has to part from his family

It’s clear that Nok Du shares a loving relationship with his father and brother, and I, for one, am living for the little flashbacks of their interactions. While the show hints that Nok Du might not truly be their son and brother, the two men still care for and protect him like he is part of their family.

It’s not clear why the father was disapproving of Nok Du studying or learning martial arts (oh, and going onto ships for some reason), but the fact that he nonetheless learned some cool swash-buckling skills shows how determined Nok Du is to safeguard his little family from the dangers that dog their every step.

So far, we do know that his mother passed, and her last words to Nok Du are a riddle waiting to be unraveled. From choking on her attempt to tell him his real identity to rapidly switching gears and vehemently claiming it’s his fault the family is in the state it is in, the mother figure in Nok Du’s life sure has some surprises in store for us!


Little tiger cub taking on the burden of protecting his family!

LOVED: The mysterious widow village

The central location of the plot and also where our hero and heroine currently reside, the village and its whole concept and duality are interesting to me. Just imagine a village populated by women who have formed a self-sustainable community where everyone is encouraged to work based on their strengths. The strong and powerful ones form the village guard, who patrol and throw out invaders of the male variety, while others become seamstresses and wine-makers that supply the gisaeng house bordering the village.

And somewhat surprisingly, the village is very welcoming and gracious to the gisaengs, who command respect here.

The village also seems to have its own secrets, with some of the widows forming a contingent of assassins who distribute information, participate in search operations, and kill their targets without batting an eye.


Oops, busted!

LOVED: Dong Ju’s defiance and righteousness

From little flashbacks, the show’s hinted that Dong Ju was not born into the gisaeng house and was instead the young daughter of a noble family that was extinguished violently.

Even though her circumstances have led her to the gisaeng house and to becoming a gisaeng-in-training, Dong Ju still maintains a fiery strength and kind heart. Becoming a gisaeng is in none of her plans, and she’s quick to jump to the aid of other young girls who are targeted by demanding nobles. It’s this righteousness that had Nok Du’s heart (and ours too!) fluttering.




Bravely shearing her locks in place of the head courtesan who’s also like an adoptive mother to Dong Ju, just how sweet can this girl get?!

HATED: The unexplained relationship between the nobles

The scenes in the widow village are interspaced with scenes of the nobles and royalty in the drama, and so far, the complicated web of unexplained relationships has got me royally confused. There’s no introduction to the identity and position of the nobles as well as how they are related to Nok Du.

The sense I get is that one faction is secretly trying to protect Nok Du after sparing his life when he was an infant brought into hiding by the man he now calls his father. And the other is the one loyal to the king that tried to kill baby Nok Du and still is trying to hunt him down.

But whatever their relationship, I’m hoping the next few episodes will iron these details out and we can get fully on-board with the mystery of Nok Du’s true identity!
