Brilliant episode deserves rating of 15 and more. Could not get my eyes off the screen. My heroes for the episode Jimong, Lady Oh and most especially Hae Soo. The dogs of the episode were as usual Queen Yoo and her mama boy Yo and those nasty maids of the Damiwon.

 

The general’s daughter is so cute. Will Hae Soo help speed up that love affair with the 10th?

 

Is there some jealousy from Queen Yoo towards Lady Oh for the king? Wonder what happened there?

 

Anyway some speculative political observations. Among the wives of the king, Queen Yoon and Queen Hwangbo seem to be the most important to the king. Queen Yoo is the more ostentatious one with bigger headdresses, more colorful outfits, bling blings and  all glitter. But both Queens are always present in all the important rituals, feasts and official gatherings. Both have their own palaces which leads me to believe that they both belong to elite and most influential families or clans of Goryeo. That is how the king maintained his throne through marriages of influence. I wonder whose family is more influential. Hence the 3rd Prince wanting to marry Princess Yeon Hwa to bring the powerful clans together and strengthen his base of power (as if he had any). Princess Yeon Hwa also wants to be queen and does not want be the 2nd wife of Yo which means she will not be the Queen. She also sees a weakling in the childish and nasty Yo. So is not married and he is quiet and strong and definitely king material which if she marries him, makes her a queen and definitely strengthens her families influence but then she will be a direct competition with her brother Wook whom Yo thinks she is supporting to be king. We also see the brothers giving deference to Wook. Does he have plans to vie for the throne? He is the most likely candidate to represent the Hwangbo family. Will he compete not only for Haesoo but for the throne? Yo becomes king but reigned for a very short time Is it because he did not get the support of the other most influential family of Goryeo? Now he also realizes that he has some strong competitor, his younger brother, So. As for Wook, he sees the interest of Hae Soo in So and it seems from the preview that he wlill heat up his courtship of Hae Soo. Now the intensitiy of the competition becomes intense begin not only for their women but for the right to wear the crown and rule Goryeo.

 

This drama has many more relationships and layers than the C-version and really needs more than 20 episodes to fully tell the story behind each character, but we only get hints here and there.  I would like to know/see the background story of Lady Oh, the General's relationship with So, So's upbringing with the Kangs, the other couples will also need some screen time, where does Jimong stand with the time travel angle, the grudge between Queen Yoo and WW's family and I hope they give enough time for a good ending and not rush it.

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.........................................

Don't bet on it.If they can kill a friendship  between the OTP built over 8 long episodes only to have it meet its ugly demise when few moments previously she thought of him as a good person and do a complete 360 swing into seeing him as a monster...they won't bother much about HS 21st century tedencies.had they done that.they wouldn't have dared write HS as such a flip-flopping female lead who grew a judgmental mentality in mere seconds,disregarding 8 hours of friendship.Her terror and fear of WS has reached to such an extent that she deemed it necessary to warn WW...whom she never bothered to share or confide any of her inner thoughts thus far in the drama.The writing is floundering and if I must nail my colours to the mast....what follows will be this: HS will compromise and stay with WS...thats nowhere remotely near what we envisaged for our OTP judging on the friendship they shared.

I'm ROYALLY PISSED OFF NOW

 

I feel you..... when i so loved the cool HS of before...who is not easily perturbed, who always have a witty retort, a mouthful of opinion, and will courageously put anyone on his proper place.
Now we have an HS fallen down into a puddle, cowering in fear.
... 
:expressionless:   my goodness...

I hope tonight they will show us Wang So gets poisoned and Hae Soo comes to help him. All the best for them

Yeah, I hope it will make Hae Soo realizes his genuine feeling for her despite her premonition of So being Gwangjong, that this man will sacrifice everything so that she won't get hurt :( (I hope she understands him like when she said that So is a good person), the pre-preview is killing me...

Yes I agree with you. And honestly since So has only ever wanted her love and now she's giving it to him (for her own benefit and plan) I feel like it's very hard for him to not fall for it. The revelation that she is actually treating him with love and like her own child will make him so happy cause that's what he's been seeking from her his whole life. I mean he's even killed people and kept her plan to assassinate the Crown Prince under the wraps. It's so hard to watch her puppeteer people around like that I really just want someone to put her in her place UGHHHH this evil lady. 

I know it would be hard for him not to waver as her love and recognition are what he has always been yearning for. Yet, even if there's only a glimmer of hope I still want to hold onto it because I don't want to see him being hurt by her ever again. His pain has just been alleviated by HS and his heart hasn't been healed completely, so it would break my heart if he has to suffer his mother's cruelty one more time.

I agree too but I really really REALLY hope that So getting poisoned and Hae Soo running to him isn't the last scene.

Please my dear writers don't do that!:dissapointed_relieved:

I have to mentally prepare myself for tonight's episode cause.

1. HS is running scared of WS. Should I say petrified.I only hope it's not for the entirety of the episode

2. WS would b bewildered and even hurt with the sudden change in HS. Esp since she promised him she wouldnt change once he trust her. 

3. With WS telling king he wants to marry HS, WW for sure will do sth drastic too

4. Villain empress is up to no good. I'm scared of what she's gonna do

5. There will be a cliffhanger at the end of the episode and we need to wait an entire week again

I'm trying to lift myself up thkin of good times that will come for the main otp. I hope here this image above used for soundtrack cover will really appear in the draMA. 

LJG / WS gaze is so sizzling. Evytym he gets closer to HS I couldn't help but sit abit more upright and try not to blink.

If he was being poisoned by his mother or maybe one of the maid put the poison on his tea, i bet she would get framed because she was the person that found Wang Soo bleeding and dying. 

And the kiss scene where he pecks her lips which she wore a light makeup and kinda pale, i guess they forgive her because the fourth prince said she's innocent

Loving all of the theories, and I'm also loving that everyone is on edge about what will happen tonight. XD I do hope that the relationship of So & Soo is handled right because there is SO much potential for a kind of complexity that isn't seen in many k-dramas. In defense of Soo and her becoming scared of So, while I do feel like some of it is played up for dramatic effect/tension, there is also a lot that Soo has to consider. The lives of her friends are at stake, and yes, while So has shown a more tender/compassionate side, we also need to remember that he has only really shown that to her for the most part. A person should be looked at as a while, rather than just according to one side/part of him or her. So's relationships with majority of his brothers are far more strained, and although he has shown kindness to Soo, we also can't forget this is the same person who's had his own moments of darkness - brutally killing his horse, threatening her, killing men unflinchingly, and so on. He has his own fair share of flaws, especially for someone who's looking at him with a modern mindset. 

In a way, Soo's standing on the edge of a knife. She doesn't know which actions of hers could potentially push So onto a dark path or to what extent she can even change history. If she continues to entertain So's interest in her, that immediately risks putting him in conflict with Wook. Unfortunately for her though, she doesn't seem to realize that it's too late to keep them from clashing over her at this point.

I have to say I'm very interested in how her fairytale with Wook is going to come to its unfortunate end. Right now, I'm guessing that Wook might use her in some way in order to antagonize So, and this may lead to her realizing Wook's own darkness and make her regret being so afraid of So when there are other dangerous factors and players that reside in the palace.

I'm totally lost between what's K and international version of this drama.  The one i saw or rather the only one i can get accessed to had ,  the same makeup scene repeated after 5 mins later...exactly the same scene . There's no about to kiss scene bet HS and WS though... it's getting so confusing.  Can someone PM me where to watch the K version (w eng subs) ? Many thanks!

I trawled through the C-version of scarlet heart (ok, but draggy).... and i'm kinda of glad they changed things here and there slightly for this K -version. But can someone enlighten me?  C-version is on China's history and K-version is on Koryeo (i.e. Korea)'s history right?  Or is this K-version , also on China history?  Glimpsing very quickly through the posts, i gather it's Korea's own history... But it means the writers managed to find a similar Koryeo king with 10+ sons and whose life stories happen to mirror closely with their China counterpart?  But the 2 versions are not talking exactly about the same royal family and same king right? 

Am i right? 

P/s: i started out liking Moonlight drama , but now i prefer Moon Lovers and shipping WS&HS combo.  Hope they(moon lovers team)  put in more effort at their edits and don't cause any more confusion .

Question: Where are people getting the whole thing about So drinking poison on behalf of Soo from? I see the whole spitting out blood thing and Soo running toward him but where does the context come in from?

You can see the whole thing in the long trailer. The long trailer already told us the half of the story.

i assume the long trailer provide ten episode in summary

 

and i guess i am the only who got affected being confused of the sbs version and international version :(

The soft sub not up yet, soft subs are ripped sub from DF, viki and viu. For SHR only DF who subbed,  I ripped the DF sub and tried it with raw video but its out of sync from the start, so we need to wait someone who will resync manually the DF sub and adding the translation of edited scene to the sub. its not easy job so we should wait patiently. If they done, it will available on subscene(dot)com for sure, last time the subs of ep 7 up at least 3 pm KST. 

For me I never watch drama online, I always  download raw videos and watched them with soft subs. So I can rewatch them anytime especially SHR and Wang so scenes, I can watch his beautiful face all the day :wub: 

 in SHR case, because of two vers, the soft subs available longer than usual kdrama. So watched the SHR raw video first  eventhough there are other subbed dramas already. my addiction to this drama is on another level haha

I noticed most of edited vers are Wang So scenes,  why they deleted them before though!!! 

You are right, they added WS scenes back in for the SBS version to improve viewership. Maybe the editors of the international version were fans of KHN because I feel there are too many love scenes of WW/HS couple. In ep. 8 did we really need another alone moment in the cave with WW/HS? It was already established that they are in so-called "love" and yet the important turning point scene after the makeup of our SoSoo couple were cut.  The only possible relevant information from the cave scene was that WW will ask the King to release her but the scene was too long and should have been edited shorter to allow for the SoSoo makeup scene. I think the editing of the international version was biased towards certain actors and music that they wanted showcased, at the expense of the story. I watch the show because of LJG, so I will stick with the inconvenience of watching 2 versions and thank goodness for this forum which makes the show so much more fun and exciting, thanks to all the contributors. I usually read the live recap here while show is on, but I found that knowing what is going to happen before I watch the subbed version takes away the impact and surprise for me, so I will have to come back here much later after the next episode. Looking forward to it.:D
