Can anyone here corroborate the above? Did MLSHR pull a Cheese in the Trap?

 

We must take this as a caveat as an OPINION and not jump into conclusion as a FACT.

This is in respect with the production specially the actors as well. 

We have discussions before in previous pages but is is for  an opinion but then we still stand by other factors. If this is a Cheese in the Trap move

Spoiler

The 1 B Youku views acknowledged is is a LJG effect.

And article also acknowledged that he is no. 1 in searches

http://www.soompi.com/2016/09/21/lee-joon-gi-thanks-fans-scarlet-heart-goryeo-surpasses-1-billion-views-chinese-streaming-site/.

That alone defies any rumor about the CITT fiasco. Even if it is true. 

Only the production knows what happened. We can not only rely on RUMORS at this point.

Hi I have a small suggestion, which I hope is not too much.

could you put all these ep by ep differences online on a separate page somewhere so that it can be easily access? Like a facebook/blog page?

Yes, only thru this drama that I realise that a snip here and there can greatly change the feel of a story and the intention of a character. It greatly open by eyes to the power of editing.

I will be making a summary of @liddi 's post about the changes and differences in our first page. Will have a separate section on this . I thought at first the changes are only critical upto episode 10. 

But it was not :lol:

i think its interesting what WS said in preview 'if you're not coming to my side don't give me hope'

when he first declare that HS belong to him in make up scene he actually really confident about not letting her go.. 'prepare yourself cause i will never let you go'

the second one is when he kiss her and now he give order...'without my permission you cannot leave me or die either' 

and the third one is asking 'if you're not coming to my side don't give me hope'

he slowly learn how to actually love HS.. he at first keep give order to her now actually ask her about it... i feel kinda proud with WS he slowly understand how HS mind and he changed for her... he never give up on winning HS love and now he will get what he want and he will protect it by all cost... 

the one who tried to kill and keep threaten now became someone so gentle and caring............. awww

Agree with you. 

It's funny to see Wang So not too confident to win Hae Soo's heart. Because for most episodes, he potray as bold and confidence man. 

Like he said, he want to live like a normal person too.  And that's mean he's ready to learn how to endure his feelings and not push it to other person. 

Wang So-yah, you've become grown a lot now.

As much as I want more of LJG, he had more screen time in the first episode than the 4th prince had in the first 6 episodes of Chinese drama. In the novel, the story is about Ruoxi's change as she adapts to living in the past and her relationships with the princes. We only see the 4th prince's from Ruoxi's eyes and there's no character development for the 4th prince at all. I couldn't even tell he was suppose to be the main love interest until halfway through the Chinese drama.

In the Chinese version, during the time Ruoxi is a laundress, we see how difficult her life has become and how she stands up for herself and overcomes it. There's only a brief scene with the 4th prince and another one with the 14th prince. In the Korean version, HS is completely defined by her relationship to WS and WW, so there's definitely more time devoted to LJG.

I was an avid fan of Cheese at the beginning since I've read the webtoons way before there was any talk about the drama and I was one of the many that was completely devastated when the drama took a turn for the worse.  So now I am even more apprehensive with how the rest of SHR is going to play out, if this is true.

i think these words from Javabeans from the Dramabeans link best articulate how I feel at the moment regarding deviating from the source material. There's nothing wrong doing that, unless

"By skewing the focus so drastically, the show has altered the effect of the story in a way that now feels unnatural to its intent."

This is why after 13 episodes things feel off.  And there's a sense of confusion. The lack of screen time for the main leads doesn't make any sense.  And the continuation of WookSo has no contribution towards the progress of the show.  It feels unnatural and has completely altered the "epic" love story that SHR was supposed to be.

2. In all of MLSHR posters, previews and earlier introductions, it was very clear that they were selling an ensemble cast. Even at the presscon, nearly everyone who doesnt die in the first 5 eps were there in attendance. So in this aspect, I cannot say SBS deceived us. Its just that as the story develops, Lee Joon Gi became such a force that cannot be ignored that viewers clamour for more of him.

3. There were already previous mathematical calculation of when the otp story will start to unfold officially based on the original c version development. And the answer of ep 13 was correct. In the last few secs, Soo finally hugs and comforts SO.

Hence although its true that the director favour KHN (he openly praised KHN as being very handsome at the presscon), I cannot fully pinpoint him as being unfair. 

 

So true on LJG becoming a strong force! His acting is impeccable. I used to complain that IU could not match the intensity of LJG's acting (always that wide-eyed reaction and nothing else) and that frustrates the hell out of me but as the story progresses, I begin to appreciate IU's acting.

But before the series began, it was already established that LJG will be the main lead, right? That's how I understood the promos, anyway. Because I remember ranting that KHN is still not the lead and he deserves a main lead role.

I find it amusing that there's a mathematical calculation on when the otp story will unfold. Thank you, math gods. You are always precise.

Anyway, please forgive me. But my reactions will be an episode late because I only watched Ep 12 last night and will watch Ep 13 tonight. Also, I watched both versions and I now understand why there are different comments on Wook and Soo because their characterization seems to differ in both versions. In the international version, Soo seemed to be a needy girl imploring Wook if he missed her and his validation would somehow justify her miserable existence in the palace but in the Korean version, she's not like that at all.

I'm still not sure about Wook if he just accepted to chase the throne because Yeon Hwa forced him to it or that Yeon Hwa just revealed to Wook that his deepest desire is the throne and that it finally dawned on him. There's darkness in Wook so the nickname Darth Wook is on point! Anyway, hate him. He keeps stringing Soo along when there's nothing he could do about her. What a richard simmons. Soo girl, he may not cheat on you but steer clear of richard simmons guys, ok? One richard simmons too many.

That "ok" moment of Baek Ah and Woo Hee. That was nostalgic. It reminded me how happy the princes and Soo were a year before and how things quickly changed for all of them.

And that "I could not die even if I want to" dialogue of Soo. That was heartbreaking. Because damn, she did not want to go to that time and see all those horrors and now she's stuck in the middle of it all. Girl might develop PTSD. Get treatment when you return to the present.

it could also be that maybe HS's behavior and attitude towards him change almost 180 degres, so WS is very unsure of what is going on as well?

but it is cute, it shows that he does have a vulnerable side that he isnt sure of him and HS.

Altho I find myself thinking about this too, but I think there are 3 factors to consider here.

1. the original c version story which MLSHR is based on had the female lead as the thread that narrates the story. She appears almost everywhere and constantly, so there was never a doubt that the development was her journey. Here in the k version, altho HS has her inner dialogue here and there, I dun find her being used as the main narrator. In fact, the k version paint her as having a fuzzy knowledge of history.

2. In all of MLSHR posters, previews and earlier introductions, it was very clear that they were selling an ensemble cast. Even at the presscon, nearly everyone who doesnt die in the first 5 eps were there in attendance. So in this aspect, I cannot say SBS deceived us. Its just that as the story develops, Lee Joon Gi became such a force that cannot be ignored that viewers clamour for more of him.

Hence although its true that the director favour KHN (he openly praised KHN as being very handsome at the presscon), I cannot fully pinpoint him as being unfair. 

Well said.  

I also sensed that the director and script writer(s) favoured KHN from the episodes aired so far.  It just amused me that it took 13 episodes for them to help raise WW's role to shine or outshine LJK's WS before finally realising that WW's role was never going to be able to induce the "second lead syndrome" wished for (just my two cents!).  LJK is too forceful an actor and he's got such screen power:

"He’s been able to demonstrate decent depth in his roles and bring out distinct personalities while improving." - quoted and credit by/to ockoala

And there is this lacking in chemistry up till now between WS and HS that I feel whenever I watch their scenes, and its like HS doesnt light up at all whenever WS's around her so how are we as viewers be able to relate to her suddenly having feelings for WS in the next episode(s).  Even when she hugged him at the end of Ep 13, I felt it was more of a friendly or sisterly tap on his shoulders:

Spoiler

tumblr_oejs0qmWZY1tdfsf6o1_540.gif ...HS's eyes show little joy or love when she's with WS. 

ㅇ

....and here HS doesnt show any physical or emotional feelings towards WS (or any hidden ones she may experience within her heart....its like HS is only going to love WW all her life...yucks).

The director & script writers spent too much time developing WW-HS relationship resulting in viewers' frustration like me in this much awaited MLSHR. TBH, I am dissappointed with the way this show has developed but stayed tuned for LJK for he is a talented and brilliant actor who delivers every and any role he takes on!!!

I've been a silent reader over a 100 pages ago but I just need someone to slap away this nagging theory I have about the boat scene:

It's a dream sequence. I can't help but notice how similar it is to Taejo's visions right before he died so it could be So's vision on his deathbed. Please say it isn't so! I can't help but brace myself since this drama and Soo's denial of her feelings for So has emotionally traumatized me. LOL

Lol, the BTS had the same effect on me. Our two most evilest Prince are so adorkable.  They were like children.  Which really makes them great actors also cause I'm angry and frustrated with them while watching the show but can't help but laugh and smile at their real personas in the bts.

From @liddi
Additional scene from SBS version:
1. Soo's internal monologue in front of the throne when So questioned if she was not worried about his safety, and So's dialogue after that  [30:01 to 30:19]
     HS: (You are Gwangjong. You have a long history ahead of you.)
     WS: Even people who don't seem like they'll ever die eventually die.
 
Additional scenes from International version:
1. Jung's conversation with Soo in Damiwon - his pledge to bring her out of the laundry department back to Damiwon, stating he won't call her "older sister" anymore, and asking her to wait for her - all of which lays the groundwork for Jung's feelings for Soo going forward
 

Hi I have a small suggestion, which I hope is not too much.

It would be great if someone be kind enough to do that from ep 1 onwards so we get to enjoy the complete combined versions.  Thumbs up to everyone for all your hard efforts! :heart:

Though I don't join here but I do read some posts here.  Thanks all for your insights for it enhances this drama even more so and made such great experience watching this drama. :blush:

Finally got around to watch ep 12 and 13. I refused to watch ep 12 until 13 came out, because just based upon comments I was afraid of what my reaction would be. :crazy: While I am beyond happy with next week's preview TEAMSoSoo! I can't help but feel uneasy about the international version, because just from the changes listed in the SBS version, the international seems to be leaning towards Jung with Hae Soo, which I've read is similar to the C-version, which is not so happy. I really hope (like many people) that we don't just get one or two happy SoSoo episodes and then BAM angst city! I didn't wait 13 episodes for them to get together only to be torn apart the next episode.

Possible destinations in angst city:

Moo marrying So to his daughter 

-I can see Soo being weirded out by this, but understanding that So doesn't really want to marry his niece.

So marrying his half-sister

-No comment...I just don't want to think about it.

Wook making So jealous with his past relationship with Hae Soo, causing a misunderstanding

-Come on, Wang So you have to realize Wook is the person Hae Soo is talking about. But I also forgot that this is kdrama and that So is not so experienced with romantic relationships. But Wook is in the past, as in over...finally.

Jung marrying Hae Soo

-She doesn't like you in that way! She's your brother's girl!

The 9th prince using Hae Soo's friend to spy, causing a breakup

-Honestly, Wang So, why do you have to have so many pesky siblings messing around with your love life?

Don't tell me that she will confess to WS after seeing how he is crying for killing his brother..

 

I hope her confession or acceptance of WS love does not come out of pity - like - I can see how hurt you are by hurting your brother, so let me save you from misery of killing more brothers.. I shall be yours... kind of theory..

 

Would totally hate it!

Acting goof up - IU clutches one leg, limps on another.. limping keeps changing from leg to leg ..

Also, whoever said that rebound relationships are doomed to fail.. kind of gets proved again :P

 

Boyfriend ditched IU... she immediately fell for Wookie (classic rebound symptoms..doesn't even take a day to warm up to him).. and then eventually finds her stable relationship.. WS..

 

Really looking forward to Jung stepping up his game

 

 

******************************************

Also how dumb is everyone???

 

All the princes and the world can see, observe, infer on their own that Wookie loves HS..

But can not see that WS does it too...

 

And for being as smart as the world thinks of him, what every tom D and Harry can see.. WS can't see that HS and Wookie are in a relationship??

 

I mean stupidity galore...

 

 

This reason is enough for me to let YH have the throne... Other than Queen Yoo and YH .. no one seems to be astute enough to notice, observe their surroundings and surmise correctly.. and ofcourse the only man to have similar sense .. Baek Ah
