The ending was bloody stupid. Sure, I get why Eugene Choi and everyone else had to die to depict the realties of war and how tragic it is but the way Eugene Choi died was just sloppy script writing. He didn’t need to cross over to the next carriage. He could have just stayed on the other side of the carriage and shot the train connector with his gun ( which was completely stupid anyway with his single bullet). He could have used the Japanese merchant as a body shield if the Japanese soldiers shot back and he would at least have a higher chance of surviving. Why use his own body as a shield?  And like what one earlier commenter said, he could have coerced the Japanese soldiers to drop their guns!!! Poor Aisun must be reliving the traumatic moment for the rest of her life thinking how Eugene didn’t need to die if he just did this or that instead. The most irksome bit was when he said ‘this is my love story’ in a Korean-English accent when throughout the show he spoke perfect English with an American twang. Everyone died! Even her servants and her extended family died! It’s like you spend all that time watching and growing to like the characters and they all bloody die anyway. I wish I could take back the 20 odd hours I spent watching the show.

Coming back to watch this drama. There are always so much to see in the poetic cinematography. I also love the identity conversation revolving around the political crisis at this time. Where do you stand? What will you do to be where you stand? 

Go Ae Shin learns to protect herself and stand up for her comrades. 

Her teacher fights for a country that once betrayed him. 

Eugene is American Korean and there's this complex of feelings in his identity. 

Gu Dong Mae is Japanese Korean and was discriminated because of his class when he was a kid. As an adult, he's further discriminated for his identity as a samurai and class. 

Hui seong is a privileged Korean nobleman and does not know what to do with his life. He only answers his calling, his purpose later in his life as a photographer.
