Just finished episode 6... Okay as much as I love Hyungsik and ship Maek Jong and Aro together....That kiss though..... When I was watching episode 6, I was like freaking out and when he kissed her, I was like YOU CAN'T JUST SAY THAT TO HER AND THEN KISS HER!! But dang man... Hyungsik's acting in that scene though :love: Anyone else agree that he did a good job acting though? :D When the tear dropped from his eyes and said his lines... :scream: This is why I love Park Hyungsik :wub:

But aw man we got some conflicts with the Hwarang in this episode... Man, Ban Ryu just really wants to start a fight, doesn't he? I feel like despite his background and his family, he's just acting like a jerk in this case. Despite the conflict with his father and adopted father at home (? am I right about this?), this doesn't give him any right to act the way he does... I hope things get better with him but at the moment I don't really like the way he's acting right now. Although.... I can't wait till he falls in love with Soo ho's sister haha.. I think they'll be a cute couple. Someone said that Soo ho's sister is cute and he's kinda cold so they would make an adorable couple. Can't for that ship to sail~

Also oh my, this drama is really making me curious about Moo Myung's family roots... Like is he a true bone...? Or maybe he's the late King's son and he's actually royalty :scream: When that mysterious guy came and talked to An Ji Gong and said he unlocked a door he shouldn't have....What does that mean??? Moo Myung definitely has a hidden past... I wonder if he is some how related to Sam Maek Jong? So many questions just run in my head... I know this would be a crazy theory but what if some how Sam Maek Jong is related to Aro and they're like brother and sisters while Moo Myung is royalty or something? I feel like that would be a huge twist but I highly doubt something like that would happen. Gaah so many birth secrets.. :confounded:

But I hope we get some more bromance scenes despite the ending of Episode 6. I am really dying to see some Maek Jong and Moo Myung scenes together~ :wub:

  It's doesn't bother you that SMJ forced a kiss on Ahro. SMJ has exhibited possessive and stalker tendencies with Ahro that i just can't ship them together. Also their interactions are one sided from SMJ POV.  SMJ comes off too pushy and continues to do things that obviously makes Ahro very uncomfortable.  I also don't understand his odd issues with his mother. She sent him away to keep him safe from being killed, he was brought up by a caretaker/bodyguard Pa Oh, it's very obvious that he isn't equipped enough to take on the task of being  King just yet and comes off as a spoiled brat with a huge sense of entitlement.

I really don't know how my bromabce will go with these two with the love triangle but I feel that the bromance will still be there!! despite the love ligne, Sam Maek Jong will still learn many things from Sun Woo and we will have great moments between them helping and protecting each other alongside the rest of our Hwarang knights!! :wub: I'm just wondering how Han Sung will join their bromance group as he is not part of their room's rules sadly!! but I can see him becoming their little dongsaeng they'll take car of!! :wub: 

...

no you'r right!! Sun Woo will become the leader of thd Hwarang knights and it's natural for him to be with his admirabel morals and strength!! and for women to fall for him!! :wub: and from the stills it looked like th princess isn't the evil kind of a person so I hope she's really a good person and not like her mother!! 

really?!! I didn't see that pic!! 

...

Don't worry about bromance chingu...men r different then women...they know how to let go...you'll see..either will king let go after the truth comes out...or MM will....well after a few punches of course :wink:

About leading Hwarangs...think you r right...he's strong, honest and fair...once other guys make peace with him they will accept him as a leader...but what i'm afraid of that in this position he'll want to go and do things to be away from AR :tears:

Ahhh, I don't really want to see Soo Ho fall in love with the Queen as well because we all know this will not happen and it's unrealistic...but I guess we'll see how the drama takes it.....

I love how Maek Jong and Moo Myung warmed up together when they got kidnapped and helped each other out :wub:

I think Ban Ryu and Soo Ho's sister would look adorable together as well! I can't wait till we see them together....! Also I do ship Maek Jong and Aro together but if he doesn't end up Aro (which will probably happen), I just want somebody by his side because it seems like he doesn't have anybody that cares for him 

I hope Moo Myung doesn't see Maek Jong kiss Aro because if he does, I know Moo Myung would get super angry at him!

Wonder too about SH's fascination with the queen...where will they take this...know they don't have courage to make a real, even if short, romance out of it...or they do???...we'll see

MM&AR...wish for happy end...but...to tell you the truth...i do ship them since they both showed some affections twds each other so far...if story turns their affections i'll go with that...just want them both to be happy...and to be honest, if i did this drama to my total like, this couple would know from the start the truth or will really become like real siblings and king would stay with AR...even if true background of MM comes out

If MM sees this kiss i think he'll have a looooot of mixed feelings...seems he's born to attract problems

Lol I'm hoping it's safe to post with out getting hit by flying words chingu. I'm excited to see what's going to happen next to our Hwarang. My heart is already breaking for Su Hoo, I know that Queen is going to use him:cold_sweat: I hope SH's sister can get BR to lighten up, I don't want to dislike him, I'm looking forward to seeing him stop being such a snob.

...

You r save...at least with me chingu..even if you ship king with AR unlike me :)...and our lead trio is only thing here that can divide us i think

BR...can't wait for his change...even if just in front of SH's sister...but...did you see his face after she slapped him??? he he ...bet he never got that before :w00t:

About their scene from the preview...who is sister begging?...brother? BR?

BTW...that scene when at night AR was teaching MM to write (that king witnessed) was so warm...loved how they teased each other :wub:...why do i have feeling that at some point words 'i love you' will come on the paper :heartbreak:

she said that though she loves him she doesn't agree with the way he acted with Ah Ro chingu!! :) 

I think his behaviour is based on him living as a King so he can come out as arrogant and pushy but he's not a bad person and didn't act on bad intentions!! he's wrong but he'll learn from his mistake because he's not a stubborn arrogant man but needs who can help him to learn to be a better person!! 

his mother sent him away to protect him at 1st but things changed over 10 years and everyone in the kingdome is aware how she doesn't want to step out from the thrown!! and in order to be a better King shouldn't she make sure he get to know about his kingdome?!! what king would be able to rule a kingdome that he knows nothing about?!!

yes!! I never knew Choi Min Ho nor Do Ji Han but I'm impressed by them!! they are doing really good in here!! :D and even Kim Tae Hyung is doing really well with the time we have of him!! :D

Hmmmmm ,

Although Sam Maek Jong's emotions are very strong and evident I have no doubt that both love her . I think it will come down to this , Sam Maek Jong is the King , he has lived his whole life to be the King , and A Ro would most likely get in the way of that at the end of the day . On the other hand even if Moo Myung turns out to be royal he could not care less and would most likely sacrifice whatever to be with her . 

Ban Ryu's personality reminds me of ( Choi Young Do / Kim Woo Bin ) in The Heirs , violence at home , tough bully exterior . I have a feeling he's going to make a funny 180 with his relationship with Soo Ho's sister Soo Yeon . I'm loving her bright , bubbly , innocent personality and I think she's going to shake up his world hahaha , I can't wait to watch this relationship develop.

As for Soo Ho and the Queen , I feel sorry for him because you can already tell that the boys sharing the room are going to be very close . He's going to be stuck between his close friend , Hwarang , and the Queen .

 

 

I agree with all you said!! :D

crazy-monkey-emoticon-008.gif Hello chingu Happy you have joined us. I'm loving this more that I could have imagined.  It feels like the story is really going to start now! I hope the tale of PSJ's hair has ended w/this version and I to am dying to know who MM really is.

Lol I'm hoping it's safe to post with out getting hit by flying words chingu. I'm excited to see what's going to happen next to our Hwarang. My heart is already breaking for Su Hoo, I know that Queen is going to use him:cold_sweat: I hope SH's sister can get BR to lighten up, I don't want to dislike him, I'm looking forward to seeing him stop being such a snob.

@aileens I have a feeling our King is also going to get the smackdown  and be shown the error of his ways by AR and MM. 

@ferily Welcome back, I was wondering where you have been.

 

hhhhhhhhhhhhh we will have one more version of Park Seo Joon/Sun Woo's hair style chingu!! I think this is the last version!! hhhhhhhhhh I actually loved him in all his hair styles or is it just me loving him?!! :wub::P 

cr:  hwarangthebeginning_official

I'm worried for Soo Ho the most, if he comes out safe from loving THE QUEEN how much can he come out safe from heartbreak of being forced to chose between his friends and the woman he loves?!! hope he won't fall for her tricks to use him against his friends!! :( and about Ban Ryu, I was really mad at the way he was acting especially with Sun Woo and I'm going to enjoy his (slight) karma when he falls for his lifetime freinemy's sister!! :lol: he talked about Sun Woo's "sister" with bad manners and he'll pay for it by loving Soo Ho's sister and getting smacked by Soo Ho for it!! :lol: and I'm sure he'll learn and realise how low he acted with Sun Woo and everyone else he looked down on but that will come with time and I have all the time to enjoy the journey!! :D 

I'm sure he will!! what is Sun Woo doing here then!! hihihi

yes!! he did a good job in performing that scene!! :) 

Ban Ryu believe that high ranking and power is what make a person and define him and everyone beneath him is to be stepped on!! that's Silla's system after all and he lived by it/with it seing his father stepped on by his adobtive father!! I believe he'll realise how wrong he is the more he'll interact with Sun Woo!! the 1st slap he got was Sun Woo showing him how he's nothing without his father's power!! ;) 

I'm losing my mind wanting to know about Sun Woo's real parents!! for sure he's not to be known to be alive or he'll be in danger and I believe he's a royalty hiself but don't know if he's the Queen's son or a-beileved-to-be-dead son of the former king?!! :crazy: 

I hope so too chingu!! :D

yes!! that's why I was so happy watching Soo Ho hugging him and jumping around him on the fight soccar mach!! and I can see him, Yeo Wool and Han Sung turning into his loving and admiring dongseags!! I can't wait for the scene where Soo Ho and Yeo Wool will sleep while surrounding him!! :lol::wub: 

yes!! that would be really bad!!

NOOOO!! why?!! is it because of his identity?!! but his identty will be revealed at some point and I'm sure being a sacred-blood and royalty will help them so he can have his true identity while she and Abeoji won't be harmed for lying as they saved a royalty!! I need that!! :confounded:

Wonder too about SH's fascination with the queen...where will they take this...know they don't have courage to make a real, even if short, romance out of it...or they do???...we'll see

the Queen is obviously still have feelings for Abeoji but she can be evil enough to try to use Soo Ho which I'd kill her if she does!! :rage:

About their scene from the preview...who is sister begging?...brother? BR?

hhhhhhhhhhhh I think she's begging Ban Ryu!! I think/felt she wants him to cover for her or something like that!! hhhhhhhhhhh how funny would it be if he goes with it and covers for her in front of her brother and take the blame for it?!! awwwwww I want that!! :lol: that would be awesome!! :lol::wub: 

BTW...that scene when at night AR was teaching MM to write (that king witnessed) was so warm...loved how they teased each other :wub:...why do i have feeling that at some point words 'i love you' will come on the paper :heartbreak:

DRAMA REACTIONS & REVIEWS
Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching
by DB Staff | January 7, 2017 | 23 Comments

 

javabeans

 

Hwarang: I’m loving this love triangle, and I’m going to enjoy it for as long as I can (which is to say, until it gets painful for the odd man out). It’s not a love triangle where both guys have an equal shot at the leading lady’s heart, because it’s pretty clear where her feelings are heading, but because of the setup—the boys being Hwarang-mates, the hero having to act like he’s her brother—it keeps us in that fun realm of petty jealousy and budding romance. I love Park Seo-joon and Park Hyung-shik together, which reminds me a bit of the reluctant bonding between Goblin and Reaper, which is always super entertaining.

 

HeadsNo2

 

Hwarang: Well, if there ever was a lesson on not judging a drama by its promo posters, this is it. I feel a little sheepish since I was one of those people who thought Hwarang would be worse than Moon Lovers, but that just goes to show how a director can really tank a show if left to his own devices. Hwarang succeeds where Moon Lovers failed not by being more profound, but just by virtue of having narrative focus. It knows the story it wants to tell and is telling it, which is one of those essential pieces of the puzzle Moon Lovers seemed to be missing. It’s not an especially new story or even a very engaging one, but at least it’s picking up, and is a fun enough diversion every week.

 

odilettante

 

Hwarang: If this was a straight-up modern-day high school drama I probably would have bowed out after the first episode. Instead, I’m utterly delighted by the historical setting (hilarious anachronisms and all). While I was expecting it to be goofy (and I’m glad it is!), I’m also pleasantly surprised to see that there’s a thread of depth and potential for serious (and earned) character growth. All the boys are predictably pretty eye-candy, but I’m more excited to have Go Ara back on my screen, especially since I’m convinced Ah Ro is just Silla’s version of Answer Me 1994’s Na-jung.

 

tineybeanie

 

Hwarang: The whole Park Seo-joon/Go Ara/Park Hyung-sik faux-incest love triangle reminds me so much of Autumn in My Heart’s Song Seung-heon/Song Hye-kyo/Won Bin relationship that I get deja vu chills every two seconds. And the chorus of the OST song, “Dream,” has that old school-style melody that takes me years back to my early drama-watching days. Well, I know one thing hasn’t changed — then, like now, I boarded the doomed second lead ship. All there’s left to do is wait for the delicious but painful sinking.

It would help if she finds out he's not her brother...they can hide from the others :blush:

That tea owner asked her last time if she's sure MM is her brother...come on girl

DRAMA REACTIONS & REVIEWS
Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching

Hwarang: I’m loving this love triangle, and I’m going to enjoy it for as long as I can (which is to say, until it gets painful for the odd man out). It’s not a love triangle where both guys have an equal shot at the leading lady’s heart, because it’s pretty clear where her feelings are heading, but because of the setup—the boys being Hwarang-mates, the hero having to act like he’s her brother—it keeps us in that fun realm of petty jealousy and budding romance. I love Park Seo-joon and Park Hyung-shik together, which reminds me a bit of the reluctant bonding between Goblin and Reaper, which is always super entertaining.

Hwarang: Well, if there ever was a lesson on not judging a drama by its promo posters, this is it. I feel a little sheepish since I was one of those people who thought Hwarang would be worse than Moon Lovers, but that just goes to show how a director can really tank a show if left to his own devices. Hwarang succeeds where Moon Lovers failed not by being more profound, but just by virtue of having narrative focus. It knows the story it wants to tell and is telling it, which is one of those essential pieces of the puzzle Moon Lovers seemed to be missing. It’s not an especially new story or even a very engaging one, but at least it’s picking up, and is a fun enough diversion every week.

Hwarang: If this was a straight-up modern-day high school drama I probably would have bowed out after the first episode. Instead, I’m utterly delighted by the historical setting (hilarious anachronisms and all). While I was expecting it to be goofy (and I’m glad it is!), I’m also pleasantly surprised to see that there’s a thread of depth and potential for serious (and earned) character growth. All the boys are predictably pretty eye-candy, but I’m more excited to have Go Ara back on my screen, especially since I’m convinced Ah Ro is just Silla’s version of Answer Me 1994’s Na-jung.

Hwarang: The whole Park Seo-joon/Go Ara/Park Hyung-sik faux-incest love triangle reminds me so much of Autumn in My Heart’s Song Seung-heon/Song Hye-kyo/Won Bin relationship that I get deja vu chills every two seconds. And the chorus of the OST song, “Dream,” has that old school-style melody that takes me years back to my early drama-watching days. Well, I know one thing hasn’t changed — then, like now, I boarded the doomed second lead ship. All there’s left to do is wait for the delicious but painful sinking.

hhhhhhhhhhhhh we will have one more version of Park Seo Joon/Sun Woo's hair style chingu!! I think this is the last version!! hhhhhhhhhh I actually loved him in all his hair styles or is it just me loving him?!! :wub:

It's not just you, he is one handsome man but I just don't why they had to keep changing the hair!

You r save...at least with me chingu..even if you ship king with AR unlike me :)...and our lead trio is only thing here that can divide us i think

BR...can't wait for his change...even if just in front of SH's sister...but...did you see his face after she slapped him??? he he ...bet he never got that before :w00t:

About their scene from the preview...who is sister begging?...brother? BR?

BTW...that scene when at night AR was teaching MM to write (that king witnessed) was so warm...loved how they teased each other :wub:...why do i have feeling that at some point words 'i love you' will come on the paper :heartbreak:

 

 We are good chingu, I'm on board the SS AhMung ugly-chick-smiley-10.gif I'm enjoying the heck out PHS in this one but I've got 3 oppas I'm drooling over, so far. I think sister is begging her brother to leave BR alone.

@zagigirl actually i think she is saying sorry or something along those lines to ban ryu, because ban ryu seems to look at her while suho is shaking him but we will see in ep 7 whats really going on. lol his face was priceless, he even touched the place she slapped him and wasnt letting go. his probably in shock at being grabbed by her, then slapped and then witnessing her knocking out her brother. im sure ban ryu hasnt met a girl like her.

i hope  aro finds out sunwoo isnt her bro soon, so we can see what the aftermath of that is and that way its not weird for her to fall for him cause she knows they arent related. park seo joon and his may hairstyles in tbis drama, he looks good in all of them tbh

also loving yeowool and hansung, both are so cute. happy to see really good responses to the show, it has that offbeat vibe to it that you cant stop watching. also its just a lot of fun

Yes! His answer was really funny :tounge_xd: Even though PSJ didn't think he looked good in those hairstyles, I think he pulled them off really well! :blush:

she said that though she loves him she doesn't agree with the way he acted with Ah Ro chingu!! :) 

I think his behaviour is based on him living as a King so he can come out as arrogant and pushy but he's not a bad person and didn't act on bad intentions!! he's wrong but he'll learn from his mistake because he's not a stubborn arrogant man but needs who can help him to learn to be a better person!! 

his mother sent him away to protect him at 1st but things changed over 10 years and everyone in the kingdome is aware how she doesn't want to step out from the thrown!! and in order to be a better King shouldn't she make sure he get to know about his kingdome?!! what king would be able to rule a kingdome that he knows nothing about?!! 

Hehe, thank you for explaining what I meant ^^

Hmmmmm ,

Although Sam Maek Jong's emotions are very strong and evident I have no doubt that both love her . I think it will come down to this , Sam Maek Jong is the King , he has lived his whole life to be the King , and A Ro would most likely get in the way of that at the end of the day . On the other hand even if Moo Myung turns out to be royal he could not care less and would most likely sacrifice whatever to be with her . 

Ban Ryu's personality reminds me of ( Choi Young Do / Kim Woo Bin ) in The Heirs , violence at home , tough bully exterior . I have a feeling he's going to make a funny 180 with his relationship with Soo Ho's sister Soo Yeon . I'm loving her bright , bubbly , innocent personality and I think she's going to shake up his world hahaha , I can't wait to watch this relationship develop.

As for Soo Ho and the Queen , I feel sorry for him because you can already tell that the boys sharing the room are going to be very close . He's going to be stuck between his close friend , Hwarang , and the Queen .

 

Agree with you 100%!

:)...i'm happy too...i'm watching 5 ongoing dramas this days...and really love them all...all of them r different and really great...but somehow its most hard for me to wait till next ep of this drama recently

Right!!!!!!!!!!! :)...and he'll get her flowers as well

...but somehow won't go out of my head that scene from the long preview where king blocks sun for her and BB sees that..and his face from preview when he hears king likes her...if he's not masochist :vicx:...ok will stop..we r not there yet...and somehow seems AR won't let him even if he gets my ideas right?

Wow, you're watching 5 ongoing dramas? :scream: I could never do this because if I watch even 2 dramas at the same time, my focus for both of them shift and my focus for 2 dramas aren't even. I'll be focused in one drama 100% but not with the other haha. I like to have my full attention to one drama~ This is why I always stick with watching 1 drama at a time ^^ But everyone is different haha : D
