I'm always fascinated about Soo's premonition because I always feel they hold important role in this story. So now that I  have time to ponder, I realize that Soo actually has 2 DIFFERENT premonitions about So as Gwangjong.

I have no idea whether this last premonition will come true exactly the way it is or not. He looks so hateful here so maybe this will happen after he knows about Wook-Soo past relationship? Or after Jung-Soo marriage? I wish this won't come true but let's see. 

 

Sorry to cut your post. I agree with you that it will probably happen later on.  But I think he looks really more lonely, sad,  and resigned to me. I have been really drawn to these 2 images of him. I find him so beautiful in them.

SBS Presents Moon Lovers : Scarlet Heart Ryeo                                                      Drama: Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Ryeo Revised romanization:   Bobogyungsim

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

KYAAAAAAAA I justsaw this on weibo, obviously its a continuation from her "peck" aahahhahahahahahahha I am such a goner.........................................

Posted Images

just a random thought while waiting for the 19th ep, i do not know if these were already mentioned in past pages (you see i can't backread all 40+ pages yet huhuhu) the pain HS gone through and how she left the 2 princes after deciding that people she loved already lost to the curse of the throne..

Tragedies in HS/Ha Jin Life (just so i can see how far she already endured)

Pre-Goryeo: Left and betrayed both by BF and BFF, on top of debts by her BF.

in Goryeo: (i wont mention lady hae here since she was already sick at that time, and also the slicing her wrist since she did it to save herself)

Upon entering Palace:

1) Tortured because of poison incident

2) Left by Wook during rain scene 

3) Death of her Sanggung

     3.1) Missing for WW over a year - not waiting

4) Wook testing and using her to kill WS and usurp the throne

---- after this she decided to leave him (Wook)

5) Death of Mu

6) Death of Eun and SD

7) Break up and left by WS for 3 years

     7.1) Waiting and missing miserably on WS - missing really kills you inside, by the way..

8) Death of Yo

9) Marriage of WS to YH

10) Misunderstandings with WS

11) Death of CR

12) reason of WS to kill by learning the betrayal of CR and WW

--- after this she decided to leave the palace (Not WS, as i believe she was actually asking permission to live outside).

did it miss anything?

* it took her 2 heartbreaking (direct) incidents with WW to leave, and took 6 with WS, that's what she endured for him, compared to her (kind of puppy) love with WW..

* took (more than) 12 heartbreaking incidents for her to save her sanity by leaving the Palace and in addition from the next episode: taking the wrath of WS upon learning the past with WW (oh no)

* deaths as mentioned by the astrologer (and a few fans here) include or in/directly related to her.

* as much as i love her to stay with WS as she promised, i have to understand HS joy and sadness. it is heartbreaking for someone to leave (her love behind) but decisions have to be made because of circumstances...

Long story short, she have to leave so everyone can live according to History (as she maybe realized during CR letter she can do nothing to change things further, not even with her love, so she just have to accept the person.. but she cant accept that her WS was turning into someone she feared the most) Not even the happy moments with WS can save KGJ. This girl actually have a heart like steel to endure those (but already weakened along with her body as time goes by)

2 night to endure to watch ep 19 (and the editing, oh God please have them edit beautifully) and more than 2 nights to endure the sadness that will be left by MLSHR ending... only can be relieved by recognition awarded to the actors of this excellent (though not perfect) drama..

i'll keep tabs on the end of the year awards, SBS..:confused:

Hi eclipses! I'm new there, just reader, but I have to give my two cents... I beg pardon for errors in English.

In his fight against the father's marriage with Soo, So destroyed the Hae-clan completely, and so Soo stands alone since that. Now So needs the clan support to stay at throne and alive - und Soo cant help him! The short-term benefits ended in long-term, irreversible losses. :bawling:

If I were fic-author, I would have written, So offers himselves to clan Hae as a husband for Soo for their support. Marriage - yes, but not with the King, with the prince, who has a king star. 

Hello.. welcome :D 
 

I have the same tought before... Unfortunately, YH is more powerful than Soo eventho Soo get support from her clan. YH is the daughter of King Taejo and her clan (if I'm not wrong) is more powerful right then (because Hae clan get punishment from King Taejo). So...... the conclusion is HS can't win against YH. :tears:

  I noticed that too.

Can someone explain why in the world aren't we getting the same quality from the video? frustrated-cheetah-emoticon.gif?13027861

tumblr_m7yfau7G8M1qjkdh8.gif I thought it was because I am using a not so new pc but no! even in the bts it clearly shows that there is a huge different in color!

It will be greatly appreciated to whoever can enlighten us with this issue..  wq_org.gif

 

They enhanced the exposure and color in the still cuts pictures :sweatingbullets: while the tone in the video was edited to suit the mood for the scene and whole film, thus sacrificing some of the details. I face this kind of dilemma all the time.

If they enhance the tone in film in all frames, it will end up like Tarsem Singh's movies. Maybe the director doesn't find it suitable.

I downloaded the 720 / 1080 HD files and played them with samsung LED tv. The quality was really good, details and colour were also very nice, I was amazed. Maybe you could try it.

Its easy to retouch still pictures in post production and amp up the colour artificially. However for moving pictures, the post production retouch has to be done more than 24 frames a sec which is almost impossible to do. It is however, possible to colour correct a motion picture by adding a universal filter to all the frames, but not all directors like that because it destroys the natural quality of visuals shot on film. although i think the drama is probably shot digitally, directors still like to pursue that original film quality, which i guess is an artistic preference. 

It is the same reason why the actors look more flawless in, lets say the cosmo shoot as compared to how they actually look like in the drama itself. 

 

photoshopped?..  haizz.gif

how can red turned into a pale (was it) maroon? wasn't it because of the type of film that they used?

My friend and I, we love ML so much. I meet her last night and we spent lost of time to talk about So - Soo love story. We cried a river after episode 18. My friend said that she had to watched Running Man after she seen ep 18, that make her mood better.

if So did not turn against Hae clan, he might be able to be with Soo, since Hae clan is responsible why YH's clan was accepted again to the palace.. oh well, WS is loyal to the King and his father so he have to rat them out..

I think Hae Soo is actually the reincarnation of Past Hae Soo. Modern Hae Soo is feisty and brave and outspoken, Past Hae Soo is quiet, obedient and bound by rules and conventions. Through the years and centuries, Modern Hae Soo has evolved into the antithesis of what her past self was. Either that, or Past Hae Soo was also feisty and brave and outspoken too, deep down inside, but she never allowed that secret part of herself to emerge. She kept it hidden.

When the eclipse happened, Modern Hae Soo fell into the water. At the same moment, in Ancient Goryeo, Past Hae Soo was seized by a sudden strange compulsion to go to the public bath area, and fell in. She died, and at the same moment, Modern Hae Soo's soul took over Past Hae Soo's body. In a split second, the quiet, obedient part of her died. The feisty, brave, outspoken part of her took over.

Another part that has always puzzled me was the Wook-Hae Soo chemistry. The way he looked at her in the library, the ironic words he spoke, "We...were not close.." and that look he gave her, always made me feel he was hiding something. I actually thought early on that Past Hae Soo was sneaking off to meet him at the cave, and somehow fell into the pool by accident. Otherwise, why was she there that exact moment Modern Hae Soo fell in the water? But now, coming to the end of the drama, I believe there was no rendevous that day, she was just compelled and drawn by an invisible force to venture into the bath area , and that was because of the pull of the eclipse.

I think Past Hae Soo and  Wook were attracted to each other; even though she was quiet and shy, and quite the opposite of the new Hae Soo, he was already attracted to her. When she woke up, she had lost her memory, she told everyone that, and Wook probaby never ever told her that there had been something between them because he didn't want her to feel uncomfortable, and probably because he felt it was wrong. What I believe is that Wook was attracted to Past Hae Soo, and Modern Hae Soo: their attraction, and subsequent relationship was fated, it would have happened anyway even if Modern Hae Soo hadn't appeared in Goryeo.

And referring to liddi's post about her unusual name, Soo, which means 'tree' and the significance of it in the context of So, and her as his refuge, Soo is equally connected to So, and by Soo, I mean Past Hae Soo. Even if Modern Hae Soo hadn't appeared, Past Hae Soo would have become entwined with So as well. So, with or without Han Ga Jin, the fates of Hae Soo, Wook and So are entwined together.

Actually if the Hae clan wasn't completely destroyed then Hae's would have been more powerful than the Hwangbo clan I guess because remember, Wook needed to marry Lady Hae to regain their standing in society so I doubt they are any less powerful than Hwangbo but yes, YH has the added advantage of being the Kings daughter.

 

There's something I'm confused about, during the first half we saw how Wook and his family despite being a part of the royal family and a part of a powerful clan were still kicked out of the palace and pushed under the thumb of Queen Yoo most of the time. We also got to know that Wook had to marry for the sake of gaining support from a more powerful clan like the Hae's? (I'm not sure but I think Lady Hae and his mom did say that it's because of the Hae clan support that they could get back into the palace) but in the second half, like the current episodes, it seems that Hwangbo clan is the most powerful seeing how much power Wook held in court and also YH opening the gates, etc. which was weird considering Queen Yoo is still around and her clan, despite it all was more powerful than any others according to how they were trying to show it. Now that Yoo is out, it seems the second most powerful is Hwangbo which is leaving me quite confused as to how did they gain that much control after losing the support of the Hae's who had been their ticket back into the palace in the first place. Wook didn't remarry so... What happened?

Wook got to do jobs more than what he should to do as a right hand man of the Kings from Mu to Yo.. i guess in their (king) backs he was already trying to make ties with other powerful clans by doing "bargains" (remember CR said that many believed WW should be the crown prince- as he was a straight A and Humble *cough* at the same time and not Mu - having a not so powerful clan), so in the end, he became the representative of the clans against So.. Always remember Wook is a scheming person, living always under the pretense of a upright man..

My dear fellow inmates 

I know you might dislike me in a few seconds:

I don't want a second season .... the second season from the c-version was s**i and I don't think I could cope with our cast going thru another hard season.
Thru the fan-project some of us participate in and thru millions of comments we know MLSHR was not received in Korea as we feel about it and so they might as well say "No way"

And I am good with that.

I am still not sure if I can cope with Moonday and Tuesday ... *sigh*

I don't want a full second season but I'd like at least one or two full episodes of them in the future... like a Montage of them actually being happy (because I refuse to believe they aren't)  with all the good princes/people around them.

 

I need happy for closure. GIVE ME HAPPY! *heavy breathing*

I'm wondering who everyone's top 3 most hated characters currently are, in descending order. These characters can be evil or they might not be, they might have reasons for their actions but their actions are detestable and quite frankly disgusting and appalling.

My Top 3:

  1. Wook
  2. Won
  3. Queen SMSS/Yeonhwa

All the visions came out to be true, but Hae Soo's reading of them was not entirely correct. She saw Wang So laughing after killing Eun, however it was a delirious one not monstrous as she predicted. Maybe in this vision too, although he seems angry for a split second, his face will change to utter sadness in the following moment.

What would So be without his emotional place of refuge in the end, the one place he can find rest and comfort for his weary heart?

I know yours is a rhetorical question, but I believe Wang So answers it in episode 17 when he pleads Hae Soo not to leave him alone in his room: "Just thinking about being here alone makes me feel suffocated" (translation from subs). If it were me, I'd have a breakdown and major depression would kick in but yeah, he's a king, so no time for that.

I would say mine is the same as yours. Although frankly I'm still hoping Wook can still be redeemed somehow... (wishful thinking?)

Ah-ha! I see, that makes sense. I had forgotten about Wook's charity giveaway's during the earlier days when Lady Hae used to be there, he had earned a lot of goodwill through doing such things I bet but still I thought the best and most permanent way of securing clan support was through marriage so I was wondering how they got so much power.

 

I just remembered, this is my first post on this main thread and I started off with two-faced snake Wook and slimy witch Yeon Hwa  Image result for noooooooo

Chae-ryung...I find her despicable. Alive, she was a treacherous spy whose only loyalty was to her master. Her final weapon was the blood letter, and it was the most powerful tool ever; it created a permanent rift between So and Soo. Chae-ryung knew well what she was doing when she wrote that letter; she knew it would sever ties between So and Soo. That was her ultimate revenge against So for taking her life, and her final service to her master.

Actually, I am still trying to figure out about Ji Mong's role. Modern HS time-travelled to the past, remained there, couldn't go back until she died in the past. Modern JM time-travelled to the past? it means the JM in Goryeo is JM from the future ( he knows the modern technologies). But modern JM was there when modern HS drown. Does it mean, Goryeo JM eventually died then transport back to the modern days and become the homeless drunkard JM? That's why he looked so depressed in the future? because of all the terrible shipwreck he experienced in Goryeo? does it mean the homeless JM would be able to tell modern HS the story/ whatever happened after she died in the past?

Also, when So confronted JM about why 3rd prince became King, JM said he was also surprised, something must have changed the fate, some variables. The variable is certainly HS. But what other things that could change? we thought HS couldn't change anything, history stays the same.

 

Ok, I need to stop now. Why am i doing this to myself. :expressionless:

This is kinda random but I just wanted it out there that I think LJG can not be defined by just one word when describing him.  I can't say he's just handsome or he's just beautiful like how I can usually apply these terms to other actors. I usually associate maybe 1 to 3 words per actor. But with LJG, he encompasses ALL; he's so beautiful, so handsome, so cute, so sexy, so swoon worthy, shines so bright, so dark, so dangerous, can act, can sing, can dance, very kind and generous, loves and appreciates all his fans, such an inspiration. These are just some.  If I tried to list them all, I might crash soompi.  

Yes, I admit, I maybe kinda biased because I'm so in love with him.
