I knew from the start that there was no happy ending for this drama, but the angst will be so much worse than I imagined I guess.

They will suffer... But I still have hope for happy ending. :o

@ruizaio Thank you for the info about the Korean education system. :) 

@irilight The situation was comical the first time I watched it, the tiny girl was caught spying seminude princes. I laughed. For me the focus was not their bodies, instead the embarrassing situation. But I think, it was better not to show it in the trailers. Also, that only happens in the first 10 minutes, we know the drama don't focus on fan service. :) It is only for comedy purposes...to balance the more dramatic ones. After all, this is not the typical saeguk...Bubujinxin at the beginning neither. It's only that in Moon Lovers, they gave more room for comedy. Well, that's how I see it. :)

Semi-rant so I'll put it in spoilers

Spoiler

 

 @irilight

 I love you I really do... but what's with that ''review'' up there? It's not that great, looks like just a bunch of random comments. And what's with their obsession with nipples? All mammals have them - nothing to be ashamed of or shamed about. 

Granted I found that scene a bit posey... but who am I to complain? :D They're trying to attract a certain audience. Nothing as graphic though as you'd see on Game of Thrones or it's ilk. (Not putting GOT down, huge fan here) So I don't really know what these ''reviewers'' are complaining about.

As far as the acting goes, it's not that bad either. Are we watching the same show?

@irilight no offence, but if I wanted to read bad reviews (and by bad I mean written) I wouldn't come here. There's enough negativity out there... I don't see the point in bringing it in here?? I'm all for debate and valuing others opinions so if you really want to bring negative reviews than make sure there's some semblance of sense to them. They don't even bother to explain why the acting is bad? 

Ok rant over. Sorry folks.

 

 And I broke the signature rules :( but that is one cute puppy!

Scarlet Heart: Goryeo (New) (aka MoonJunki)


Oh, wow. Almost too much pretty. Hahahahhahahaha! Just kidding, when could THAT ever happen? 
It's not bad, this drama! Yes, I managed to watch something! It's also not actually good though... so predictable (yes, that also goes for the original story) and quite a bit of horrendously bad acting. But as long as I keep using the ffward button, I will be fine. I don't see why IU is getting so much hate though, she really isn't any worse than any of the others.



This is an emotional watch. I don't see problems. I don't care what So does, at this point. My heart is breaking for that sad, lonely boy and I DO NOT CARE how swoony you GET, Wang Wook, I love Wang So. My heart is IN this, for some reason. I'll even give up PA Lee.
Jaehyus: Then PA Lee is mine.
This ought to be interesting...
Trotwood: (*busting in even though I'm not watching any Moon drama*) What? Did someone say PA Lee is free?!?!  You are going to have to fight for PA Lee, Jaehyus.
When Lee Jun-ki is good, he is GOOD. With him, that means not too much overacting and lots of fight scenes. But I will be the first to admit that Kang Ha-neul looks VERY manly in this drama and I like it. I like it very much. He'll break our hearts into tiny little pieces, this kind prince, won't he.

 

There's nipples and nipples and nipples and nipples and nipples... I can't stop seeing them!
This Wang Won fellow...he looks familiar but not really.

I know shirtless is not technically naked for a man, but this is all very very very distracting.
I was wondering why they would bath with long black pants on!
I mean they were talking about something, and it seemed important, and there was probably something they had to do, but all I got in my brain were nips. I should get back to Changsha for a bit of rest...
I'm amazed that Kakashi was able to pull herself away from all the nipples to notice the wet black pants... but I'm glad she reminded me of them. I need to go back and rewatch.
In all honesty, those nipples don't really turn me on. But I'm glad Saki mentioned them because ovrall, they're probably this drama's biggest asset.
I'd have to agree regarding the nipples being the drama's biggest asset. I found myself walking away from the tablet a few times yesterday, which means I don't really care about anyone or anything on this show. Also, someone explain the Prince numbering system in the comments. Wook and So were born in the same year, but Wook is number 8 and So is number 4. Who are 5, 6 & 7? And because I'm watching Ep 3 out of boredom, I'd like to add that IU and Lee Junki have zero chemistry, while he has plenty with that girl playing Yeonhwa, and Baekhyun really is annoying. Final point, having now seen Ep 3: I'm less grossed out by the endogamy for some reason, than I am disturbed by 8th Prince falling for his wife's cousin who is also his ward and thus an adopted daughter. That is really creeping me out. (Don't forget that So will marry his half-sister! Ah, this family. They gave me a headache during Shine Or Go Crazy, and now they're at it again.)
I wasn't actually particularly enthused about any one set of nipples, no. As you know, I have my preferences in that area.  But it is nice to have a group of attractive men shirtless within viewing distance.
I'm in. I'm so in. Is it Monday yet?
I miss my sad wolf so much. Is it time yet? Is it time yet?
IT IS!

I'm sorry but who these people are that they feel they can trash an entire work on which dozen of people spent months of hard work and lack of sleep, while giggling and behaving like immature little pests. Seriously, I've no problem with rightful criticism but this is not it. For instance I often disagree with the views of the girls at dramabeans but at least they are always respectful enough of the actors and production staff to post full reviews and arguments when they don't like something. I hope ranting like I just did isn't against the rules (if it is, let me know and I'll delete this part), as it is, I believe unless it comes from a well respected reviewer, these kinds of opinions are not anymore valuable than anyone posting their thoughts on twitter or instagram (and we aren't posting every single negative post we encounter on the net regarding this drama, so why post this one).

Last but not least, their question on who are the princes between the 4th and the 8th, I'm really surprised it is asked so often because to me it's obvious given that TaeJo had like 30 wives and concubines that several princes may have been born the same year and if they didn't make it to the drama, chance is they are dead already. Let's not forget the year is 940sth and children and childbirth mortality rates were really high at that time (that's also why people kept having so many children, hoping at least a few would make it to their adult years).

@KdramaSwimmer thank you for the cool GIFs . I love specially the first one so much.

I remember LJK talking about his character Wang So on a interview and he explained that WS had only one woman in his heart and that was HS. She is the one that hugged him first, treated him well  and showed him care and respect. It was at first a relationship based on mutual care and understanding. And then he is the one that approached her romantically first. So, my dear friend, we will be seeing Wang So trying his best to seduce HS :D I bet it will be in a very manly and hot way. Cant't wait to see that happening. :wub:

But he added also that WS became very obsessive about HS. LJK facial expression when he said that line was a little bit different. I am fearing that his obsession about HS will go overboard and might be the reason he will be so furious about eliminating any threat that he might face. Which means that the bloody fight between 4th and 8th drama will be mainly for HS and not for the throne . I wonder how HS will be reacting to this. I bet she will be blaming herself to death, if the 8th will be killed by his brother because of her. My poor baby Soo ! She won't enjoy WS's love, if it turned out this way. :tears:

@MadraRua, @bbygjjang, @Gabi Bros, Thank you all for your comments about Dr.Myri blogspot comments

 

Spoiler

Like you all, I am loving this drama, but I am not loving the light comical parts (and I did not like them in the previews either). And I did agree with the comments that this particular scene was in poor taste. For that matter, I dislike most of the half naked bodies we see in this production. I have never seen that in any other sageuk or fantasy sageuk.  Personally, I feel - it is the influence of Universal investment in the project - in wanting to cater to Western viewers.

Lee Joon Gi has made a point of never going shirtless, because he wanted to prove himself as an actor first, and not a sexy body (and yes, I do think he is sexy! I love him), but in this production we do get to see him shirtless. I was almost shocked to see that.

There is a lot of good in this production for sure. But I was reading more POV's because I want to understand why the low ratings.

Sorry, that I seem to have offended some of you. That was NOT my intention for sure.

I have now edited to delete these comments.

If that happens, no happy ending. :dissapointed:

This thrad goes so fast for only 5 eps. *sigh* I'm hardly keeping up. 

So I watched the preview for next ep again and saw Baek Ah with Wang So threatening Jungmo (is his name correct? The star guy?) while Wook sitting behind them. Wow their brotherly relationship (WS and BA) bonding thightly so fast. I'm glad someone in this forum (Sorry, I forget again. But all credit goes to you. You are awesome chingu!) mention about the leaked script. If not I'll be completely puzzled to why Baek Ah is with So. I mean I don't think he's fond of Wook right now. 

I hope Hae Soo haven't hurt herself too bad before the princes rescue them or the bloody hand thing is not her blood. I can't even think about the lovey dovey moment with Wook in the preview. It's just against the characters. Even for Wook. It's not that time yet and I hope it's just a dream or fantasy. But what do I know? This drama has to cope 5+ years in such short time and eps. They have to speed up what can be speed up I guess. I just hope the result is not seem hurried on screen.

My take on Wook's action on the marriage deal? Too late too late. Why is his character have to think long and hard about everything while they need to hurry up? *sigh* At time like this I feel like I'm choosing the wrong side (pssttt... It is wrong. He'll never get the girl). I wish he's more like So about this so the love triangel power battle goes balance until Hae Soo makes her decision. If it goes like the preview seen, So would the one who's doing more hard work in rescuing Soo (that guy threatening someone and seen by his evilbornfromhell mother for it) and that guy hasn't falling in love with Soo yet. For me it makes the love triangel no fun hahaha. There should be tug wars and who tried harder to please or rescue the heroine, so the heart anxiety feels louder. I wish I was wrong and the writer makes Wook step out beyond his boundary of duty and responsibility not at the last sprout but from the get go the news broke. Believe me, it will work on So's behalf as well. It will make the HaeSo couple shining more brightly when the time comes in expense of Wook's despair (I'm doing my evil laugh as best as I could right now). :D

My bet on the marriage's deal? The whole Wook's family except him has something to do with it with some help from So's 'dearest' mother. They don't want Wook end up with ordinary girl like Hae Soo. 

It's just my random bubbling based on the preview. I could be totally wrong but it's fun to take guesses at the story line before it happens hehehe. I feel like I should go see a doctor or a shrink. This drama consume me. It's R88 all over again. :crazy:

Well, it is friday. We just have to survive trough weekend after this. Fighting Eclipers!

However regarding LJK's scene, it was not fanservice imo as it was plot driven and the way his body was filmed was to showcase the numerous scars he had, all testimonies of a very harsh life and afterwards the whole exchange with HaeSoo, his nudity (half naked to be exact) as well as not wearing any mask were both used to show how vulnerable she caught him because not only does his face have a scar that makes him into a pariah but once again his entire body does as well, something none of his brothers have.

I think the same. His body shows the harsh life he had. In the scene we can see that he was not wounded only physically, but also emotionally. For me, is not fan service.  And Lol...about the scenes of the Queen...haha as you said she was the one abusing of the baths. So true XD

To be honest - it was 50 / 50 for me - I knew he was in both - Nonstop 4 and Star´s Echo - but in one just as a Guestrole. But I gladly was right that Nonstop 4 was not related to Japan. But that was the tricky Question for sure...

 

I´m glad that Cinderella can shorten my waiting time tomorrow and the day after... I already miss Wang So and his Brothes and of course the Energy Hae Soo - so much. I would love to marathon it now... who cares if I can get sleep or if I will end up as a mess all in tears... waiting for this Drama is really hard. I keep rewatching the Wang So Scenes. :D And the BTS - extremly from his Fighting Scenes - for some reason I can´t stop watching them. He looks so elegant and wild with the Sword. Oh and of course my Signature Scene and his first arriving in the Village - how often have I seen that... and without the Mask... okay... all of his Scenes... Yes.

@solelylurking I could not get quote option for a part of ur post so pasting it below for refrence

For me it makes the love triangel no fun hahaha. There should be tug wars and who tried harder to please or rescue the heroine, so the heart anxiety feels louder. 

I think thats make the ship sailing almost in one sided direction.  I alwways had SLS in most ny past kdramas  juat cause I found second giving tough fight to male lead to get gals heartn love. SL always had more chances and ways in their armor to give male leade enough threat to one up his game in oreder to win. Here it feels like WW has no power remaining to give WS tough fight. And I'd feel instead if WW YH is more of a threat for So2 love story

Anyway, don't worry I wasn't offended per se, I just think it's a shame to bring negativity here and if we do, let it at least be some constructive criticism. Case close and I in turn hope I wasn't too harsh. :fearful:

@bbygjjang, I have seen on this thread Knetizens comments too.
In any event - I have deleted those comments from my original post, and I apologize again.
