I suppose I can make a preliminary announcement to give some background information before the official call.  Media like DVD/Blu-ray don't sell very well in Korea, so creators of Kdramas don't r

World Cup among 10.000 people? How do they do this survey? Park Bo Young is my favee! IU is my new favee! Yaaay!! So happy for both of them!! :blush:

 

@LyraYoo I kinda agree with you. We follow Soo's way of thinking and because she knew Gwanjong's history, she jumped into that conclusion. How ruthless he seems. Now that we know her vision may not aaall true, what's with Eun and SD's death (cross fingers), her vision of Gwanjong may also be misinterpreted. I think this is how Soo will look at him for the last time. Perhaps when she finally left the palace. 
Sigh.. this is going to be heartbreaking. :tears:

 

Totally agree too.  I think she takes those visions at face value too much and forgets the context behind them.  Earlier in the show, it had been established that in Goryeo, sometimes you had to kill just to survive and there wasn't anything wrong with trying to live.  I think she forgets this.  WS never wanted to become king, he just wanted to live and love and be loved but there's too many obstacles in his way now that unfortunately, he has to get rid of - but he's not looking for trouble, it just keeps finding him.  I think she should have learned from Yo's death how torn WS was about killing his own brother (albeit a jerk) that what happens going forward was never his intention, it's simply a means of survival and self-defense.  

Spoiler

I told myself to stop watching when I found out the Chinese version ending because I didn't want to set myself up for heartbreak but I can't tear myself away.  I really hope they choose an alternate ending because it is just so unfair to WS to have lived the life he lived and still end up alone (YH doesn't count!).  SOMEBODY GIVE THE MAN SOME LOVE!!

  • Favorite WS/HS scene: The laundry scene! So much longing and perfect body language. Her concern for him, his concern for her. Pacing and cinematography were on point too. Even the scene after when she tells him to stay away is great too. 
  • Favorite Scene involving a female character : Lady Oh telling Hae Su that she's exactly like her younger self. 
  • Favorite Scene involving a male character (that is not WS :sweatingbullets:): Baek Ah and Hae Su drinking. Hilarious and there should be more scenes of this. Also the opening scene with all the princes in the bath sold me. 
  • The scene that made you fall/start rooting for WS: The horse meet-cute. So much friggin chemistry and Wang So looked amazing. .
  • Scene that made you question your love for WS.: Well, definitely the multiple homicides. That would make me question anyone. 
  • Scene that made you fall for WW.: I thought he was hot, but WS was already in my heart. 
  • Scene that made you question your love for WW: The calligraphy scene. 
  • Favorite scene with the other Princes (Mu, Yo, Eun, Jung): The marriage rescue with the Eun Decoy. 
  • Scene you can point at as the one that irrevocably made you obsessed with the drama.: I can pinpoint it to the horse meet cute, they were just so perfect. 
  • Your least liked scene.: All the Eun stuff. I can live with out. 
  • Scene that made you saddest.:  Lady Oh's execution. Whoa. 
  • Moist poignant scene.: The jail scene. But I'm anticipating SO MUCH WORSE in the next few episodes. 
  • Scene that made you think/analyze the most: ep 15, explaining to people why Hae Su was protecting Wang So and not lying to him
  • Scene that made you anxious the most:  Hae Su talking with the King and the King telling her she was from the future

Sequel gone wrong huh? that's sad. > <

pretty much half of the cast change cause most of them were unavailable to do the sequel so there was alot of new casts which didn't connect with the other one. The plot was ehhh

 

For the past few days I been running in my head that maybe he did kill Eun but told them to fake their death in order to leave the palace. Cause I saw a pic of SD and I'm wondering maybe they didn't die afterall since SD looks pregnant in that photo...I mean they can fake their death with the help of WS stashing them but they wore an armor underneath just plant fake blood in there to make it look real. Then when their body is suppose to be buried BA will do a swap and take them out of the palace so they can runaway from each other. I know its a very slim chance of them living but i just hope that they don't kill an innocent prince who didn't want to be involve in the fight for the throne get killed >.<

Does anyone have a favorite scene that is NOT the fight-makeup/confession scene of Episode 14?

In the interest of finding out (Aand mostly so we can hold on till next week :bawling:), I recommend we do a Favorite Scene Challenge with the following questions:

  • Favorite (2nd favorite, if the above scene was your favorite) WS/HS scene: The concealer scene where WS says 'Now, I am yours.' WS at his most vulnerable and most honest form. It came after him being scared and angry to go face the crowd. The level of trust this man placed on HS and the support/comfort he got in return was immense.
  • Favorite WW/ HS scene: Walk in the snow in the palace. The naive, innocent infatuation in its purest stage.
  • Favorite Scene involving a female character (Queen Shitty Mom, Yeonhwa, Chaeryung, Lady Hae, Lady Oh, etc) Has to be YH's declaring she will be more powerful than the king. Whether it was foolish or not is another matter. I was expecting so much more from her after that scene. But her character is after all is a supporting role.
  • Favorite Scene involving a male character (that is not WS :sweatingbullets:) Ji Mong crying over CP's dead body. We hadn't known how attached Ji Mong was to the CP until then. He has the same attachment for WS.
  • The scene that made you fall/start rooting for WS/HS. The physics defying rescue scene in ep 1!! 
  • Scene that made you question your love for WS/HS. None
  • Scene that made you fall for WW. I haven't fallen for him yet. I would say they wrote him perfectly. 
  • Scene that made you question your love for WW. I had scenes where I questioned my indifference for WW. I like him more now that he has become dark and will do anything to make HS come back to him. I hope he doesn't fizzle out.
  • Favorite scene with the other Princes (Mu, Yo, Eun, Baek Ah, Jung) Yo and the Queen's scene where he says it is more fun trying to tame WS than to send him away. Poor guy doesn't know what he started!!
  • Scene you can point at as the one that irrevocably made you obsessed with the drama. The opening shot of WS riding to Songak with the eclipse in the background. And the ones when he enters the city. Also I was ready to fall in love all over again with LJG!!! The episode 1 and 2 were high on style. The scale came down substantially after that. 
  • Your least liked scene. WH's intro scene. It was not something that made me curious about her. 
  • Scene that made you saddest. The King stumbling as Lady Oh is hanged. A man with all the power in the world can't save the one thing dear to him. Makes all the struggle for the throne look futile and silly.
  • Most poignant scene. The rain scene when HS is scrambling and WS is trying to hold her. At that point nothing makes any sense in HS's life. What a mess it was. I think that was the best scene of the series so far.
  • Scene that made you think/analyze the most. Ep 4 WS's scene with the king when CP wants him to stay on in Songak. WS says 'I will not be a son or brother, but a loyal subject." In the same episode you have his mother and father question his being. I wondered why WS wanted to come and stay in first place.
  • Scene that made you anxious the most. The scene between WS and Ji Mong after the crowd insults WS. Ji Mong says he can only lay the pieces and he can't force WS's actions. Ji Mong almost convinces WS. WS was ready to attend the ceremony. HS put the finishing touches and added the much needed confidence. 

 

My favourites I added in blue text.

I had so much fun figuring out which scenes stood out! Awesome exercise to kill time till next new episode!!!

@itzibitzispider Ah... yes... I have officially became a victim of the MLSHR's curse since ep 4 (no reason regarding the episode though, it was just after that, I invested a lot of my time to MLSHR until I didn't have enough time to follow other dramas :sweatingbullets: )

 

Spoiler

I can understand it in some extend ... for me some drama catch me with the first episode, some I see thru friends snips of further episodes and I am hooked
(This and Fated to love you - both the K-versions had me hooked after episode 2, I had to drag myself thru 4 episodes of "Marriage Contract" and "My love from the other star")

I was just watching Angel Eyes and reading some news regard to it and I stumbled upon this.
I wonder if it would have been weird if LJK did decide to act in Angel Eyes. It would a great credit to both LJK and KH!

I am wondering how is IU's boyfriend feeling :)

LJK quite clearly seems smitten.. not seen this in bts of other series :P

Even for IU.. i know she said it was love at first sight and that man is really intelligent.. BUT then kind of similar personality here :P

(PS: I do find IU hot.. by all standards)

 

The bf of IU in real life, sorry i don't know his name and i don't want to know his name either, should be alarmed of the overwhelming chemistry and extra sweetness and care between LJG and IU on the set during the filming. Because those actions mean A LOT. If i were him, i will ask IU, and i hope that if that happens, she will say she had a changed of heart and that she wasn't able to control herself but to fall for LJG. Sigh. I really hope that will happen. Really. :)

Just finished watching the c-version of Scarlet Heart and here's my take:

I don't like the 4th prince at the c-version because at the end he's the one who turned evil and not the 8th prince.  The 8th prince is actually a good guy but too ambitious.  I actually love the 14th prince of c-version and seriously think that he should be the one who become the next emperor (and RX should love him instead of 4th prince).  However, history can't be changed and according to history, the 4th prince was a great emperor.

The k-version of Scarlet Heart has some similarities but is still different from the c-version.  I don't think WS will become evil but WW is the evil one.

I cannot count how many posts i read stating they want their life back. I couldn't agree more. My husband just laugh and nod his head and say 'mmmm' whenever i talk about this drama. I know also that he is being extra patient because i don't cook often anymore. Either we drive to a cafe or takeaways. Last weekend he cooked different foods then stored them in the fridge. He also called the cleaning agency last weekend and booked their services until the first weekend of november because i am not doing anything at home. He also read to the kids at night. Shame on me but this drama made me somewhat forget about my responsibilities. I just pick the kids and drive them to their next lessons. It's that bad for me. 

Ha! Such an understanding husband! When my SHR obsession started, I created a Soompi account in order to comment. I felt a little embarrassed so I didn't tell my husband what I was up to. One day I was writing a post and he caught me typing away and he asked what I was doing. I was so mortified that I tried lying by saying that I was on Tinder looking for a side piece. He took a look at my computer screen and just shook his head. 

Edit: just saw the Mod's request to keep posts related to the drama. So I will add that if So and Soo don't hook up in modern times, I will be so angry and heartbroken.

Does anyone have a favorite scene that is NOT the fight-makeup/confession scene of Episode 14?

In the interest of finding out (Aand mostly so we can hold on till next week :bawling:), I recommend we do a Favorite Scene Challenge with the following questions:

  • Favorite (2nd favorite, if the above scene was your favorite) WS/HS scene

    Actually I can't decide which of the 2, it's from episode 12 when the king forbids HS to say goodbye with the princes.. when she limped her way to that tower and talk to So > then the subtle goodbyes > stolen kiss > HS in voice statement > ofc LJG adorable smiles.
     

    The other one was when So visits her at Gyobang not really sure what's the correct term for the place :sweatingbullets: HS brushed her eyes with So's clouded image.. then later stops as she felt the sense of So > So went for the I-miss-you-back-hug :wub: and HS not resisting for a while, god I know she's longing for him too :phew::wub:

    Many hated the episode, but episode 12 is one of my favorites :lol:

    Spoiler

    Untitled.jpgUntitled1.jpg

     

  • Favorite WW/ HS scene
    I might get stoned for this but it'll be this.. HS full of fury. (I'm sorry, if you mean romantic scene, I don't have one.)
    Spoiler

    Untitled2.jpg

  • Favorite Scene involving a female character (Queen Shitty Mom, Yeonhwa, Chaeryung, Lady Hae, Lady Oh, etc)

    Evil Queen

    When King Taejo, utters Lady Oh's name before he died.. Queen mother's defeat was priceless.

    Lady Hae
    When she died at Wook's arms.. I know from all the heartache, last moment I think she felt comforted at least.

    Lady Oh
    That certain moment when she told HS that she cares for her and the whole confrontation with the King


    Yeon Hwa
    Tea poisoning scene, when she saved So by acting out by drinking the poison. I know it's not 100% for So.. but if she doesn't feel anything for So, I doubt she'll be forced to make a move. She's brave and wise.. I love her character as she is a badass female if only she isn't a villain.


    Chaeryung
    So far none, I guess when the times when she confess everything and be filled with remorse and seek clemency towards HS. She's like Judas.

    SD

    When she purposely lose to Eun. *sighs* the love is so innocent yet so deep.
  • Favorite Scene involving a male character (that is not WS :sweatingbullets:)
    Ji Mong
    Bawls over Moo's death, reminiscing the good ol youth days.

    King Taejo
    Handing his gift for WS through Ji Mong but was present in the location.

    General Park
    Bird grilling scene with her daughter, it's a warm and cute father and daughter moment before sending her off.

  • The scene that made you fall/start rooting for WS.
    Aside from the swoon-worthy moments, the complete broken WS confronting his Evil queen mother made me root for him unconditionally might be the Humanized Gwangjong or the Cruel Gwangjong.
    Spoiler

    412412412.jpg

  • Scene that made you question your love for WS.
    Context doesn't exist. I love WS entirely the moment he appeared on the screen :wub:
  • Scene that made you fall for WW. 
  • Scene that made you question your love for WW. 
  • Favorite scene with the other Princes (Mu, Yo, Eun, Baek Ah, Jung)
    Moo
    Eun's bday.. when he uttered to Yo, "You speak such words carelessly. Should I teach you a lesson why you should not?" way to shut the arrogant bastard's mouth.. and ofc brother-bear protecting his lil-wolfy-bro.

    Yo
    Latest preview, when he's about to go nuts.


    Baek Ah
    When she teased HS for not be able to please So's anger, so cute lol. who am I kidding I love all of Baek Ah's scene :wub: I'm a trash.

    Wook
    When he revealed he committed treason with his family.. voicing bottled frustrations over the years with all the burden from his family. 

    Jung
    When he lashed out against his Mother and Yo, for treating So like that.


    Eun
    As much as I love his declaration of his love towards his wife upon breaking away from HS's hand..Of course, it's the confirmation of feelings from the bath scene.. "It would have been nice to live like this from the beginning" and wanting to start a family with SD. But I specifically love the certain moment in the spoiler tag.
    Spoiler

  • Scene that made you saddest.

    414141411.jpg

    Staring at this scene brings tears to my eyes, I can intensely feel HS's melancholy :tears: All credits to IU! B) this would be an iconic scene for me.

     

  • Moist poignant scene.
    Rain scene as well!
  • Scene that made you think/analyze the most.
    Ji Mong! mainly why he's been too influencial in the palace, and why the late King Taejo isn't suspicious of him at all.

Stupid me ... I had two windows open and got confused ... guess I should quite ;)

 

Ji Mong sat down with HaeSoo and WangSo. The matter could not be delayed. the King lost his mind and was a thread to everyone in court. Just this morning did he stab a palace maid, because the second cup of tea did not taste the same as the first. He thru a fit, that that girl was about to kill him. Even thought HS came rushing in, the deed was done. The girl lay bleeding on the floor and got kicked in the face, as she left spots on the kings shoes.
JM "I believe it is time"
WS "I just came back from a mission, how am I surposed to step in?"
HS "The king sees revolution everywhere. Even the small daughter of WM was sentenced to prison."
JM "We need a plan. Let's meet tomorrow at the astronemie tower. I will depart now, as it is late. HS remember to go straight back. Those corridors aren't save anymore."
HS nodded and got up. Right as JM opend the door, she felt WSs hand slide into her hand, Rough and warm. Oh how she had missed that hand.
WS "Upon a word Soo-ja"
JM nodded and closed the door behind himself.
HS turned to WS who still held her hand. His eyes were fixed on her rough small hands and his thumb strocked gentle over the back of her hand. It was like a tine electric shock running thru her entire body. Just as she looked up from their hands his eyes met hers.
WS "I missed you."
Her eyes were full of worry.
HS "Have you been well? Can you tell me what happend? I was so scared for you."
Way to inviting, her eyes, her lips, every cell of his body seamed to call her name. His hands framed her worried face and their foreheads touched ever so slightly.
WS "I am well now that I see, hear and smell you."
His face tilted slightly and his hands guided her head, but there was no resitance, not stopping. They have longed for each other all those month and the seperation, the blood shed and evil around them had made them desperate for each other.
First the kiss was gentle, like a stolen touch. But the hunger took over and their bodies pulled twards each other like magnetic forces. The moment HS folded her arms around WS his self controll took a hard beating and the kiss was almost desperate on both sides.
Slowly his Arms trailed along her body. His fingertips memoriese each curve, thru the delicate fabric of her dress
Her hands crawl up and her fingers dig into his hair while he slowly loses the ties on her top, his hands free her shoulders so careful from the fabric that a small shudder runs thru HS. His lips leave hers just mere inches "Are you cold?" her head gives a small shake, while a small shy smile forms on her lips. As he leans back into her, his mouth start to trail to her earloop and from there down her neck 
While WS left a small trail of kisses from ear loop to shoulder did HS open the stupid little buttons on WSs garment. How often did she help those royals dress until now and now, the moment she actually cared to open the buttons they would not slip out easy as they usually did. Still she managed the free each button from it's loop. WSs mouth wandered along HSs arm and reached the scar she inflicted upon herself all those years ago. He rose the wrist to his lips and kissed the sensitive spot, just to produce another shiver thru HSs body.
This time he grinned like the wolf folks accused him to be.

WS "Are you sure you are not cold?"
HS free hand slid between his garment and lay on his chest, right above his heart.
"I believe I am the warmest I've been in all my live, my lord."
WS scooped her up and carried her to the bed. While laying her down he stole another hungry kiss

The colour of Wang Wook's hanbok has changed: it is grey/brown or even black so that the colour is reflecting his darkness. @solelylurking used to describe Wang Wook as a wolf disguised as a sheep and now, I've come to think that Wang Wook should be more considered as a wolf disguised as a dog, while Wang So's nickname was the dog wolf. Wang Wook seemed to be loyal and nice, just like a dog in the earlier episodes. Here, Wang Wook is connected to the positive qualities of a dog, whereas Wang So was considered as a wolf with the bad qualities of a dog (his social low status). Now, the colour of their handbok is the same: black or dark colours (brown). But they have something more in common: Wang Wook and Wang So were born in the same year so that their astrological sign is the same. And now back to your connection: yes, the title would fit in here too because as time passes on, Wang Wook turns into a wolf, whereas Wang So has become the dog (in a positive way). It is difficult to distinguish them as friend or foe. Since the dog comes from the wolf, they still have some wildness in them so that a dog can become dangerous as well. Notice that Wang So will call himself a dog who will kill people in order to become free again. 

Striking is that Wang Wook and Wang So have a similar view about love and polygamy. Wang Wook has never had more than one wife, unlike his brothers Yo and Won. And it was unusual. Sure, it was an arranged marriage which unlines the difference between So and Wook. Then Wook might have flirted with Hae Soo, but he didn't want to marry her, while lady Hae was still living. If you think about it, Wang Wook has a similar point of view about monogamy, but he was just not firm enough to act on it. When he fell in love with Hae Soo, he realised that he couldn't marry anyone else... if he had to marry, then it would be only Hae Soo. But his ambition and greed were the brakes that stopped him from doing so. 

On the other hand, Wang So has and had the determination and the courage to show how much Hae Soo means to him, despise what the social norms were back then. No wonder that Yo makes fun of Wang So because of that: he insults Wang So and he compares him to an animal, just like @40somethingahjumma pointed it out correctly. Wang Wook has never showed this side of him to Yo and Won. They might know that there is something between Wook and Hae Soo, but not get aware of the deepness of his love for her.  

In my opinion, Hae Soo had an impact on both of them: Hae Soo could see the good qualities of Wang So (dog) and she could tame him, while the opposite happened with Wang Wook. She turned him into a wolf and like it is said, a wolf has only one mate. Everything evolves around Hae Soo.

As conclusion, Wang Wook and Wang So can be associated to the wolf and dog, both animals have positive and negatives sides:

- dangerosity

- freedom

- wildness: a dog can become wild and difficult to control too

- loyalty

- one love

- sense of family and honour: defend his people

- wolf is less bloodthirsty than it was described in the past

- Hierarchy system: alpha-beta / master - dog

Did this answer your question?

 

Then I would like to add something else: Actually the situation that is about to happen is really similar to this situation from the episode 7:   Yes, the birthday party! Yo used Eun and Hae Soo to hurt Wang So and it happened in front of everyone. This is exactly the same trap!!

The similarity is that Yo uses Hae Soo again, but this time the roles are reversed: Eun is the victim and Wang So the so called executor, while in the episode 7, Eun was the executor and So the victim. In the episode 7, Yo had set the trap and in the episode 16, Yo has again set the same trap. And Jung will be a witness too, just like the other brothers I guess. Hae Soo is again the leverage, however there is a small change: Hae Soo is well aware that she is Yo's tool to force Wang So to kill Eun, while she had no idea in the episode 7. What looked like a bad joke in the episode 7 was an announcement for the future incident which ends deadly. Back then, it ended with an apology from Eun, but this time Eun dies.

i haven't posted in this thread for the longest time... i was called by my chingu @bebebisous33 and i read her very insightful post on Wook and So.

just some thoughts:

It was clear that HS is the pivotal point for both Wook and So's life.  The only difference between the two is that So would do anything to be with HS while in as much as Wook would do the same there are things that holds him from and his mindset is not a simple.  Where So does not care about the throne for his own sake, Wook does because he does not only think about himself but there are factors he has to consider.  WS does not have excess baggages to pull him back while WW have his family, his mother, his family's honor and his own ambition and greed that holds him back.  I think that is one of the reasons why Yo did not noticed that.  Wook is always guarded, maybe brought about by their experience. Those things made the difference when HS is concerned.  In time she saw which person she is the priority.  Wook might have her in mind as his priority but WS acted on it before he can.  Wook calculated first while WS acted on his feelings even when HS did not even reciprocated it.  HS clearly loved Wook but that love faded with his usual absence when she needed him and there is WS always by her side offereing his love.  May I comment on the c-version where Ruoxi did not actually love the 8th prince, i think she was infatuated by all his actions towards her as she was impressionable because of her youth while she did deeply love the 4th prince.  While for HS, she did love Wook and then later fell in love with So.

It's great that you pointed out about the parallelism of what happened to Yo, So and Eun in episode 7 which became a foreboding of So killing Eun in Ep 16.  When I watched it, I hated that So had to kill Eun and put that weight over HS.  That will be a big trauma on  her but seeing how she initially feared So knowing he will kill his brothers. HS was able to see that in all those killings there is a story behind.  When she is looking at it as a person from the future, even though how senseless it is to kill a person, she was able to see the reason why So did the said killings, making her see him as a person and not just the King she knew from history.
