Can I dare hope he and Yoo-jin will see eye to eye someday and even fight for Joseon?

I think Yoo Jin and GDM will come to see eye to eye because of Ae Shin. They both have suffered at the hand of the uppler class of Joseon. I don't think they will fight for Joseon but will respect Ae Shin who does fight for Joseon. All three will fight for what benefits them best because that is who they are now. what do you think @bedifferent  ???

I mean the redemption arc of his character... he's part of the Black Dragon Society although he's a Joseon.  In the future, when Japan starts to annex the country, I am hoping he will turn to support the resistance.

 

 

I didn't think  he planned to, he was forced to follow orders.  After he met GDM, confirming that Logan Taylor was playing too many pawns, Eugene wanted to stay out of it.  That seems to me like his genuine feelings.. he thought he achieved the objective that his commander wanted him to - kill and silence the leak.  However, the next scene, King Gojong told his court advisor that they didn't find an important document that Logan Taylor had on him.  I think this is the same document that GDM was searching for as well.  Minister Allan may have another idea but Eugene didn't know for sure.  King Gojong was forced to allow the Americans into Joseon to help protect the country from Japan.  

 

When he met Ae Shin at the tailor shop, he has already known his next order even though she has no idea why he is having a blue suit made.  Think that was his uniform.

 

@USAFarmgirl the scene on the train was very moving... she felt helpless and alone.  The last scene where everything greyed out with only Ae Shin left in color.  She's their last hope.

 

I thought they changed it so hes not part of the black dragon society now. Ae Shin is the last hope for the country does that mean she becomes queen . The current King is useless.

@bedifferent & @UnniSarah  Always thankful to see you Chingu's on any thread...  This isn't my usual type of drama but I am going to stick with it spread my wings and fly.   Hopefully through the darkness of this story that's already making me want to....

They will fight for Joseon but not the current Joseon.

Ae Shin is the bridge and glue to connect the new and old Korea.  I think the people need to be shown that Joseon cares for its people. King Gojong marked the end of the monarchy and he ushered in the new ROK.  I think he was pretty savyy playing the Russians, Chinese and Japan against each other. He favors the Americans, hoping to have protection from others. His open door policies are contentious for his people to get use to.

I stayed up waiting for the subs and just finished Ep. 3. The sword scenes are not that violent. The standard is the same as commonly depicted in sageuks. The kettlebell killing scenes in the Voice were much much worse.

 

My other thoughts on eps. 3 are:

  1. the whole pace is a bit slow for today's episode
  2. No Hina *sob*sob* KMJ trully suits Hina. I have watched her in Merchant of Gaekju. She was strong, awesome and excellent in potraying her character! I will turn a blind eye for her acting in Man to Man. That was a work not ever should be mentioned. I blame it on the writing.
  3. AS asking what love is and whether Eugene wanna do it together is eye-bogglingly (is that even a word?!) funny... Eugene's answers... awkward situation there.... oh man, if only she knew what love means
  4. At the boat, AS is openly flirting and Eugene kinda look dumbfounded by it (and I am feeling kinda outta sort and mostly blank. Truth is I cringed at it and the subsequent scenes of these two - bad sign for me, very very bad sign - *sigh*. As much as I am a fan of LBY previous works - from beautiful days to Red 2 etc., yeah I watched 95% of his works - I am having some very hard time feeling the chemistry and accepting them. I need more motivation, perhaps in the next episode?)
  5. Love love love the tarot lady and the emotions she was delivering ... she does not have to say a word, she already wins my heart plus she is beautiful too... why do I feel like she is going to die? I wish her for GDM!
  6. Seems like the supporting characters are filling up the screen times longer that need be, and the flashbacks are seemingly slower in my eyes, can't help tapping my feet impatiently. Perhaps all this is the cause for the slow pace? I am ok with filler, so long as it is not overdone.

Please writer-nim, I haven't watched any of your dramas cause the plots thus far haven't got me hooked and sinked. I think I accidently caught on DOTS ep. 4 but the ones that caught my eyes were the second leads, Jin Gu and Kim Ji Won. Guess this is just a matter of preference.

 

I am not convince when I heard of LBH storyline with AS and I initially thought to give this a pass. However, I decided not to primarily for the historical premises it promises and GDM (of course, a supplementary treat). Please don't let me down, writer-nim. I have been having trust deficit on many drama shows for quite some time.. please let this be one of those rare gems *fervently praying for a great show from a to z* :)

I didn't cringe at the flirting it just felt a bit rushed im like she already likes him after barely even seeing/meeting him.. felt really rushed. I had to rewind to actually get what she was saying i was like what?

 

I have never watched goblin or DOTS but im liking this show so far will most likely get round to watching them.

@miracle23 nod to the cringy moments on the boat.  I feel just like LBH looked :lol: sooo uncomfortable.  If he did not have that heavy winter coat on, he would have jumped and swam ashore!

 

Do think it’s deliberately cringy cuz Ae Shin has no idea what romance is :lol:

I ship the two and I find very funny the scene in the taylor shop...she's really clueless I'm sure he could see that. In the final scene, he also is trying to give her hints of what she can do to avoid problems, but she's already thinking too much of it  and mistaking his position in all the events. I think he planned to stay out of Joseon problems as possible, but he will eventually get in to it to protect her :wub:

Regarding the boat scene, I think romance to Ae Shin is the high feeling she gets when she is in her rebel fighter operantus mode. Agree with @bedifferent  that she has no idea about the romance between man and woman kind. She had led a sheltered life and quite ignorant of many things being still unmarried at the ripe “old” age of 28. 

 

I am quite interested in Hee Sung’s arc. What made him stay away so long from home? Is it really studies? In the scene with the tailor, they talked about Ae Shin’s fiance and she said that studies come first so she knows who her fiancé is. Wonder how she felt about him?

 

I like how Eugene reacted to his encounters with the Black Dragon Society like how he is not adverse to act like a coward or scumbag who would abandon his staff to their mercy. A non conventional hero?

Is it still the black dragon society or did they change that?

 

No, they did not change that part. Dong Mae is the leader of the Black Dragon Society in Joseon in episode 3.
