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

Good Morning, Chingu...

Finally watched Eps. 12 & 13 last night...  only comment on those is... YH certainly thinks highly of herself.  She's going to make WW king, she's going to make WS king, she's going to be WY's Queen...

Regarding the speculation above about WS and YH's children... I mentioned before history is written by the scribes writing for the regent who determines what gets written for posterity.  If the regent claims all his issue are from his Queen then that is what gets written regardless of the actual circumstances of the birth so, unless there is empiricle evidence to the contrary (i.e., eye-witness confirmation), we have no way of knowing who the actual mother of WS's children were.  Just what the scribes were told to write.

More interesting to me is the historical WS upon which the character is based.  So far I've seen two dramas about him, Shine or Go Cray and Scarlet Heart.  In each, he is portrayed as someone who was disqualified for the throne but who ended up as regent.  In both he is a kind of silent hero.  He's definitely someone worthy of further study...

My guess at the ending to this drama...  HS makes her way back to the 21st century and becomes a sort-of historical scholar and rewrites the history books to present WS as someone who overcame tremendous obstacles to become King rather than a monster who killed all his brothers...

Actually, the above is just a liptouching whereas the below one is the real kiss although it is forced

I've went to the link IG photo for Ceci to support and comment Lee Joon Gi oppa and IU.

But I got scared, it is flooded with baek ah and seohyun fans. Hehe.

So I decided to just share it here. The photo below with IU and Lee Joon Gi oppa is heart fluttering.

This episode was great, all the swordfighting, done in a Bourne style with kinetic cuts and some of those really cool looking wide shots. See director, what you can do when you give actors scene context!

Hae-Su is finally coming into her own as a character because she finally has a purpose. It occurred to me that in C-BBJX, it can be read as a feminist text since it’s about a woman existing in wildly oppressive times and her struggle to maintain identity. Hae-Su struggles with the same thing, but it’s done in a way that doesn’t allow us to glimpse into her inner workings. We are dying for some actual Hae-Su perspective, but the director is just not giving it to us. Wang So is definitely a more well defined character b/c we see everything from his point of view. It would be nice to get those moments for Hae Su, instead of trying to infer from her interactions with Wang So how she really feels. This is where a lot of her relationships with the female characters are wasted, like her maid Chae Ryung. We can get from her maid how she REALLY feels about being in this world. The “best friend trope” exists because that’s how we get some quick exposition out of the way. I would argue that someone like Lady Oh and/or Lady Hae aren’t those characters, we need someone on the same footing. Instead Hae-Su gets defined by her relationship with Wang So or Wang Wook, which is a classic male-writer mistake. They rarely think about female characters outside of their intended purpose for the male heroes. *feminist rant over*

It is mildly annoying to me that she needed a directive from the king to realize her purpose, I felt like Jimong gave her direction already, but now the King kind of does a 180 and tells her that she needs to make sure CP ends up on the throne? Kinda the opposite of what he was saying to her earlier to not interfere. Alright, not taking advice from a dying King plz.

Oh one more thing, people are complaining about too many idols and speaking from an industry perspective, the idols are most likely the reason that the show got sold, as well as netting a huge streaming deal with Youku. Idols are money in the bank, so to speak from a product packaging perspective. I know I hopped on the show b/c I’m not normally a fan of sageuks, but this one had all the eye candy. Yes, some of these actors aren’t great. But it’s the sausage-making of the entertainment industry; you need the meat to sell to the audience. Also keep in mind that this is a network broadcast show, beholden to many many stakeholders, not some indie film where the auteur has all control and vision.

the eventual break up of Soo and So could be different from sending her away or her leaving, she could be kidnapped by Wook or Jung or both and kept somewhere very secret for a long time. Just an idea... idk. Guess we'll have to wait and see how the k-drama makes it happen. I just had the thought because Wook was like "you'll come back to me." He seems more psycho than So, infact So is very considerate and gentle with Soo. So lets see! she could get kidnapped and held hostage or forced marriage with Jung.

The reception of Hae Soo seems to have improved this week, the general consensus is evidently more lenient and sympathetic towards her. 

I'm glad after reading some rather unflattering posts on tumblr about her. The writer made the character more palatable and introduced scenes that conjure sympathy and not just empathy. 

It was a little disconcerting to see Wang So taking precedence among my roommates when we watched, they all were preoccupied with his traumatic experience and forgot our resilient and cynical heroine! No doubt a testament to LJK's enthralling depiction. I'm just happy IU and Hae Soo received some commendations and fan fervour this week. :)

Hello friends,

Once again I enjoyed reading all your comments, even if I don't comment often I'm still here reading every single one of your comments with amazement since I'm not a great writer sigh....

I had a good laugh today while reading a comment left by a french Eclipse on another site so I thought I'd share. The person was wondering if Wangyo had maybe died when he fell off the cliff went to the future  and just like Haesoo came back to life but in his own body :lol:

Well that was quite creative I'd say lol This drama is driving everyone crazy I guess, trying to find what's gonna happen next and everything.

actually there could be problems if taejo and the queens themselves are related. usually with first generation intermarriage, there are less probability for issues but take it to the second generation intermarriage, then there would be. am assuming that taejo himself married within the clan. and simple problems can be skin pigmentation issues. we know that based on history, we do have kids swapped and registered as another queen's simply for political reasons. so I was thinking of an empress ki kind of situation. anyways, it wasn't meant to be a serious discussion thought. simply a random musing. :) 

I think a good example for what you are trying to say is Dong Yi, she's a concubine. But her son got adopted by the queen to become king later on. The queen couldn't produce a heir, so she adopted Dong Yi son. The adoption by the evil queen in Empress Ki, I think it's just a made up story.

just rematched the fight sequence for the nth time...and I realise true to the script, WS's moves were 80% defensive.

exactly...i too felt the same WW was clearly in attacking mode while WS was on back foot (defensively) may be cause he promised HS to not to hurt WW.

I agree with feverdrama, HS is being defined by her relationships with WS and WW. I miss the earlier episodes where it was more HS-centric and less male-centric. I wish we could see more how she adapts to living in historical times and to see more of her time as a laundress, how she dealt with the guilt of Lady Oh’s death and the grueling labor. Right now, HS seems more like the protagonist and antagonist’s love interest than a main character. If LJK wasn't such an amazing actor, I would be disappoint how much they changed the novel's story.

For example, we get only two brief scenes where we see HS's modern belief of equality. One where she says WS should apologize to her for being rude regardless if she's a princess or a servant and another one when she didn't understand why Baek didn't try to marry Myung Hee because of his family position. Whereas in the original novel, Ruoxi has long talks with the 13th prince about equality and liberty. And a discussion where she and the 4th prince agreed that corruption among government officials must be punished harshly and to not allow nepotism. I can see how Ruoxi could have influenced WS to abolish slavery and set up civil exams, but not HS's character. If anything, because of HS, WS wants to leave the palace and live happily ever with HS.

All I want to say to Wang So is, forget about Haesoo. 

Please marry Yeonhwa, at least she loved you all her life. She is not kind, but she is pretty, intelligent and of good status. Even when Yo put that 2 carat ruby on her finger, she still thinks of you. She will be good to you. :tears::tears::tears:

All hail queen daemok!

Ws will marry YH ... soon

what the number of LJG  followers before scarlet ryeo airing ? just want to know comparison




Around 400.000 probably since he got more than 600.000 new followers after SHR started airing.

@soorani right after SH Ep13 aired I checked LGJ's IG, he had 992k followers and in less than 24hrs since I last checked it, he reached 1M. That's 8,000 new followers in less than 24hours.

*I realized I seem like a stalker after typing that. I promise though I'm not a sasaeng fan. Just a very devoted fangirl*:wub:



This is crazy! I'm still baffled how he got more than half a million followers so fast. I just really happy for him!! :wub:
