You are understanding towards other people and have a kind heart. You like to listen to people's story and being honest about your opinion. You have the ability to change people to be a better person and you don't judge people by their looks. 4th prince Wang So doesn't need beauty, wealth, or intelligence in a woman. He will fall in love with someone who will cherish him, accept him just the way he is and treat him like a friend.
 
Phuuuu - I was scared a bit . but YES - it is him!!!! :wub:

I don't believe WW - HS love relationship is only a fling. Love takes different form. Just because later Soo will fall in love hardet and deeper to So, it doesn't mean she didn't love him now. Love begin and die everyday in so many different ways. For me it is what makes her love for Wook dies and her love for So grow that big and deep eventually that's interesting.

As for Wook, what can I say more? That guy is a love sick puppy. It is clear that his feeling for her is deeper than her feeling for him.

@UnniSarah yeah, wook and so is a polar opposite to each other in character that it's no surprise there are stark differences in their reaction to everything. 

But I adores both of them. :wub:These two actor are so good in their portrayal of character, it always hit me right in the feels whenever they start being emotive on screen. Even their subtle expression is so spot on. I don't know who I should choose if I were soo (she's a lucky girl~) 

But I think we should understand wook better, it's not like he didn't consider soo and save her right away.. It just he needs to come up with better solution as to not hurt other people in the process. It just the way he is, a careful, considerate, responsible guy. For example:

1. In chaeryung case, when wook overhear that soo will step up taking the blame, he can't just stop yeonhwa instantly. We should understand his position, although he's the head of family all household duty is yeonhwa territory (because his wife is sick), he can't overstep certain boundary. He follow the rules.  First he needs to know the reason first and if he think it's not right then he amends thing after. If he stops yeonhwa without thinking or consider her territory, he will openly ridicule his sister in front of other sibling and maids. That is not something he would do. 

2. When wook try to ask his mother the Queen about haesoo marriage, he can't just blurt out his frustration like jung did, he must consider his mother honor in front of evil Queen too. You can see how much burden he have to hide in that situation,I start pitying him.. No wonder he falls hard for soo,she's the first girl that didn't put high expectations towards him. She genuinely appreciate his kindness but understand that a person can be tired as well. She demands nothing from him but appreciate him. 

Although wook grows up with family (unlike so) he also faced certain hardship that since young age he carry huge responsibilities to protect his family at all cost. I believe he's a genuinely good guy at first, but people start taking his kindness for granted and set high expectations towards him that he lost his sincerity along the way. The guy is tired, please let him breath for once please... :tears:

That is why is unfortunate that in international version they cut the yeonhwa-wook conversation scene. It highlighted wook burden and immense responsibility within his family, with or without his own consent, as he thinks that his beloved mother and dongsaeng "selflessly" dedicated their life for him.  When me across the screen screaming "no girl. You're so selfish! Stop putting tons of brick of burden to your oppa's shoulder! Let him breath!  Heol~" :sweatingbullets:

Just to share a news that I saw today.

This is the korea online amazon equivalent - interpark online book sale.

Interpark Books Marketing Team bakhyeryeon said, " Buyers buy to compare the character One is how to enjoy the original drama that compares the drama character and writing, including the similarity between the original and drama" he said.

After watching epi7 with subs three scene stood out for me as below, remaining good scenes will come one by one:

1. WW and YH discussion about their family's future

WW is again proved to be a passive character if not weak, he preferred to take less riskier router (if not easier) for all the problems. Being the only son of the clan he should think about their future while he just asked YH to forget about it, how can she ? If he can forget a tragedy like that and cant be up on the  plans to prevent to occur in future that does not mean YH should do too.. Very first time i found the reasons of what she is doing politically (obviously hitting HS is not included here). She clealry mentioned to him that she will do any marriage which will hamper his chances to become a king. I can feel what she is upto and all her intentions are to keep the power of his clan increasing so that will not be kicked out later. She had teary or I'd say disappointed eyes when WW asked her to forget about it. May be she is ambitious but what I can read (as per this scene) she is doing things for her whole family and not just for herself. So we will have to wait and watch what all she has in her sleeves to make this politics more interesting. And what i assume once she find that WW is not at interested in throne she will plan to get WS in her life to keep thepower.

2. General (sorry cant get his name) and king's meeting.

As per their interaction i could feel that it was king who sent WS to General to teach him martial art (and whereas Evil Mamma and all siblings are wondering how and where WS learn Martial art). Seems like king hasnt disclosed anything to rest of the family, and if so he must be having a plan for WS and his place in Palace and court. Besides this he must have kept WS away from Evil Queen for his safety otherwise should would have killed him as she sees him with daggers in eyes.

3. Lat scene where WS enters party room with BA, three instances his gaze on HS

i. When WE says HS said you'd give any gift

I loved this moment, you could feel how much proud WS feels that moment when HS agrees with WE yes WS can give anything you ask form even if its very hard to get and WS responds make sure you ask such things only. WS face, eyes, smile all lit with self worth, pride and happiness as if everything he has carved in his life he has got it all at once in this moment. I loved LJKs smile in this scene the most.

iii. After removing the mask WSs stare on HS.

After remvoing the mask WS looks at each one in the room to observer their reaction-expressions. He could everyone reacted as per his expectation but not HS. She is still looking at him directly with no hate (like WY) or pity (WW) or ignorance (BA, CP, YH). Her expresison was something he could not read, could not understand but still he kept on looking at her to in eyes as what to make out of it (but yes i could one expression of being disturbed) considering her the only person he had opened so far in palace he could not imagive she would look in his eyes straight , he expected her to let it pass just like others but she dint. And next moment when he got to know another incomplete truth from WE he marches off the room.

iii. And finally before leaving the room WEs line HS told i'd get this gift

After being asked to remove the mask WS dint deny to remove it cause he knew that HS supported him to b man of his words so he cant back off now and removes the masks. and after observing each and everyone reaction he got to know who asked abt this gift (obviouly misunderstanding) when WE says  HS told me i'll get this gift, bot HS and WS are shocked. And WS even looked at HS dejected- disappointed (i am thinking using the word this was intentional and part of script and so it the WSs reaction cause LJK expressing something which is not there already is just next to impossible.) but if I consider it then my interpretation of the last scenes dialogue will be changed completely.

 

Agree with you in no 2 and 3. As no 1, i didn't watch that scene so I couldn't pitch in but YH is a smart girl. She knows what she wants and how to get them. As for her intention to So, I think her feeling for him is genuine like not just for the throne and power purpose. I can't imagine what will happen to Soo if she got married to So while So is in the relationship with Soo. She will take horrible actions to her to make sure she is out of the picture. She knows So's feeling for Soo is not a weak one. As to Wook, I don't understand the 'forget about it' stuff. Does he want the throne or not? Does he want to be more powerful for Soo or not? Is he hovering again? *sigh* That guy and what goes on his mind.. Sometimes one have to be ruthless if he wants power. Ruthless is not something I in lined with Wook. He maybe thinks her sister need to marry someone she loves. WS better kidnapped Soo fast to make up Wook's mind. I swear, sometimes YH is more suitable to become king than any of this fellows. She is evil yes, but she is clever, cunning, determined, and ready to suffer for what she wants.

@bold... exactly thats what I think about this gal...like she has all the qualities (you name and its there) and i dont think she will back off anyway to get that power what she is dreaming  to have.

Her feelings for So...ahh i still cant read them as pure black and white (power hunger or love carving) but rather grey (power hunger induced by love) cause she knows only WSs beside her can give her immense power. among all her siblings Yo and So are the only ones who can match upto her power seeker ambitious gal but she know Yo is pure evil while So is different. That might be the reason she has kept him as her sole target (of love).. but yes if your prediction is correct she is on love with So and then power is her secondary motto to be around him. Be it whatever the case case love or power she can go extreme limits to vanish Soo from WSs life once she gets to know how much WS-HS relationship has progressed.

And that scene...its not WW exactly said forgot abt it but his words were  both me and mother has forgot about the incident, why cant you too. He is hovering again but at least not in front of HS and did show his feelings openly and i am happy for that. Regarding throne, reason him being that passive can be to show how much HS effected his personality as once he was so against to fight for throne and even his own sister could not convince him and then hr fought just to have HS in his life.

@bebebisous33 I completely agree with your analysis of the reactions after un-masking... when i said ignore was not literally ignoring his existence due to scar but ignoring existence of scar itself so that they dont let him see that they are part of this scene of his humiliation (i could not find exact words to say what their expressions were but as always teacher-nim came to rescue...thanku)

what my intention was to say how HS has different expression than anyone else present there...  and after observing everyone WS kept his focus on HS for a very long time before leaving the altar...

my bad i could not write it in better way to make it clear what i was thinking..*have to write better next time onwards*

Gorgeous Locations of Scarlet Heart Ryeo

I wonder where exactly are the shooting locations.  At least it helps to promote the place for a traveller like me ;) .  I love the one at the lake, where there were only the two of them talking. 

Spoiler

However, can't help be reminded of the beautiful lake scenery where the 4th Prince took Ruoxi.

Hey guys how is everyone doing today? Still on MLSHR episodes effect? Me too.

So the other day I made my sister watch MLSHR, mind you she knows nothing Korean, hasn’t watched any dramas of them but I just couldn’t hold myself and told her to go on my laptop and just watch all 7 episodes I downloaded. So she did, she watched them all in a day without knowing anything about the story or the description of the plot line,she went in blind because I wanted her raw reaction.

Today, in my break at work I went out with her to have lunch and before we can sit she started telling me her impressions. She liked the story very much, she was fascinated by the costumes, dresses and the good looking guys (duh), she also loves IU, she says she is so sweet and beautiful also acts very decently . So I asked her what about the love story, she said and I swear this is true “I like WW and HS but I wish she will end up with the second lead because he is deserves to be loved and is more mysterious and interesting”, haha,  she actually thought he was her second love interes, so when I told her that actually WS was the lead she was surprised because at least story wise at this stage the love line is more about WW-HS, she has seen glimpses of WS-HS but she thought it was just like any other story where there are two love interests, haha.

So my point is that like we talked and discussed about these last days, not everyone has seen C-version and those who haven’t were based on the description of the plot before starting about HS traveling in time and falling in love with WS. I am sure the story will pick up, it has to because there is no time left, I think starting from the next episode WS-HS will get closer and also the plot will move forward with the war for the throne and all the other complications. I have faith!!

Stay positive guys, hugs!

 

 

I can't help but smiling at your post. The part when your sister said Lee Jun Ki as a second lead deserves to be loved, made me smile even more. 

It's really heart warming. Knowing from her perspective that SH is loved by someone who hasn't watch Korean Drama before. She enjoyed it, despite some people complaining about the plot, the OST, the editing, the close up, etc. I think your sister's opinion are telling the truth: SH is really ENTERTAINING.   

I just hope Korean viewers can enjoyed SH, just as much as we (international viewers) loved it.

Su's influence on So is vastly different from Ruoxi and 4th. Su is a optimistic, energizer bunny while So is the voice of reason, albeit very pessimistic. Ruoxi is detailed, intelligent and built a wall around her as she knew too much - 4th Prince worked hard to break that wall to enter her world. Su broke into So's world to heal him and give him hope that there is more to live for than shedding blood. She is going to be his lifeline...the air that he breathes - the kind of obsessive love that send tingles to the tips of your fingers and toes. If the story progresses to the point where he has to lose her - it will drive So infinitely insane and he will revert back to his old ways to numb all his pain. He will be a scarier King than Yongzhen (4th Prince BBJX). 

I am not sure how much they can squeeze into a 20 episode drama but So-Su falling in love will be the epicentre that set the plot in motion for the later half. Monday cannot come soon enough! 

 

 

 

 

Personally, i really love a happy ending for So in his Goryeo life, he had been through so many tragic happenings, but i don't think PD-nim had confidence to rewrite history, even he got a creative lisence to history, this action is not only to prevent the controversy and backslash of K-audience, but also to respect the Korean ancestor.
I always think there must be a good reason to justify historical Wang So's action. He purged all the noble clans, killed his brothers, nephews, advisors and his own son, then spending money lavishly to build numerous Buddhist temples and perform rituals and drove the kingdom into debt because he was so obsessed with that religion. And we all know that Buddhism believes in reincarnation and spirituality, right?  There must be something that caused him to obsess with it. In this case, maybe Wang So wanted to reunite with his long lost true love? :(
