[Drama 2017-2018] A Korean Odyssey/Hwayugi 화유기

Recommended Posts

I find it amazing how this storyline is going and portraying what each characters are. Each of them have their own story that compliments one another. I see how it relates to the Chinese movie I watched, "the monkey king 2." If y'all havent watched it, you need to! 

 

The monk is SJ or SM so the Sky gods sent the monk down to bring peace to the world, not only that, but to help someone like SG, Monkey king, become more vulnerable and caring. 

 

This drama is driving me crazy and with questions in my mind. Haha. It could be possible that OG may kill SM if this goes any further or SM will have to kill OG for him to stop before the Sky gods could do much worse to him.

I've just found out that one of Hong sisters' drama is Sassy Girl, my FIRST love for korean drama.. and now, they completely got me.

Today episode is too much :bawling: how come after all love-love moments, then appear SOG angst-hesitation abt his love to JSM :unsure:

Even cannot guess anymore, how SOG&JSM overcome it??? Has it to be JSM taking of GGG,before that what??? 

In just one more ep this week, it'll better that in the ENDING of ep 12, the angst will END! :dissapointed_relieved: come FASTER my love-love moments agaiinnn...

maybe what we know is just from Mawang and demons perspective. They think all of these are punishment to inflict pain

 

But the truth may be  just like what  General Frost said before .  All of these events are God plan.

Sunmi is given the mission to save this world since birth and send Oh Gong to protect her because she is a human being with limitation. 

 

While God wants Oh Gong to learn about loving , carinf ,  and be selfless? *i'm trying to be positive here*

 

@Rin90 Sunmi will def take off

the GGG in a heartbeat once she knows it could harm OG.  Once she knows about the bell of death, she will be making a heartbreaking sacrifice for sure.

 

Stop this otp torture please!! My otp need to save the world and have babies *hmmph*

OMG this is the first drama I watched that the OTP didn't get even one single episode just to be happy together. It was like problem then solved then another problem occured then solved again and then still another problem again...

You clearly haven't watched Moon Lovers - starting from episode 11 all I wished was for the drama to end so the pain would finally stop. If I survived that show I'll survive this even though it seems the angst will only increase with each passing episode.

 

Honestly, this is something I've suspected that might happen from the moment I saw that wire fasten around OG's heart in episode 2 - if you have something that looks like a torture device  around your heart that can mean only something bad - the original function of the GGG was a torture device - to bring pain to the proud Monkey King and to bring him to heel. And from the moment OG said SM is the only one who could kill him in the episode with the SNS demon I've expected this to happen sooner or later; his words sounded like a premonition/foreshadowing.

 

I have the last exam of winter semester on Wednesday so I won't be much active since I need to learn. I'm looking forward to all your insights :)

^ My take on why does the god didnt use ggg in beggining is probably bcos it has requirements for it to activate and it seems like its a new model too lol remember patriarch says the ggg is used in head to cause physical pain before .

 

I havent seen anything from todays ep or next ep preview . But it seems like buja is trap with her own body.  

 

Ps. Hong sisters u owe us a lot of fluffy episode . :grimace:

True... OG has always loves Sunmi and his actions showed it all. It's far beyond the GGG...

 

 

However we have never really seen OG disobeying Sunmi so this is the first time. During that scene i really want OG to just kill those guys but then i remember God will punish him more heavily than ever foe indlicting pain on human beings so killing is out of question

Ya but if SOG kills SM before she accomplishes her mission the gods will punish him for it. If he doesn’t he will end up being killed by SM. Then how can she save the world without his help?

 

Where are the gods (or Hong sisters) going with this? Arghh. It’s driving me insane too!

 

It dawned on me - the only solution is to remove GGG.

This was crazy. Absolutely crazy. The episode when flaff and angst are mixed. 

Firstly, I'm in love with our precious couple. SM is a little awkward and shy and OG is always here to tease her a bit ahaha. Plus I like that OG shows his love to SM so simply. Awww, there's butterflies in my stomach.

Secondly, this episode shows us that OG is actually worrying about BJ and cares about her. Daddy's vibes 

And finally, OG now knows that SM can stop him, control him and even kill him. I bet it hurts him a lot.

I want to watch it with subs immediately by the way

SOG and JSM haven't have their proper date yet this sad fate already comes into their way, even having a cup of tea together wasn't allowed by the god, seriously this is way to heavy :bawling:

I'm thinking if both accomplishes their mission properly, the gods will forgive them and let them be together. But they will have to face many trials and love is one of them.

This is too much.

TOO MUCH

Is OG really can't disobey SM? She's literally can kill him :anguished: She IS killing him by telling him to stop.

Oh my heart

@mufalo at first i was really upset that she is like killing him... But upon reflection... I think she is doing him a huge favour..she is saving him... If he had killed those two men who are actually just paid to bury BJ, then he would have incur the wrath of the Gods again... Remember this scene in episode 1 1517667486081.jpg

 

1517667495776.jpg

He has to do good work by not harming humans... SM is there to help him... I think @bebebisous33 mentioned in one of the post thay SoG has to learn to be a good diety who does not act on impulse....  SM is helping him do that...

If he can't recognise the good intentions of SM, then he is not worthy of her... So i m hoping he will not be swayed or frightened of SM...

I am now at peace...

Hahaha.. I know what you mean when you say about Moon lovers... It was so heart wrenching watching the OTP... 

 

Like u say... Yes.. If we can survive Moon Lovers, we can survive this!  

 

You are amazing.. U managed to find time to write those in depth analysis!! All the best for your exams!!

I hope so too! But it seems these gods are really very petty. @Anna Tan  in that EP SOG was penalized for destroying two overpasses (at least that's Netflix's translation!) 

 

I always thought that it was very petty!

@Anna Tan I definitely agree with you! The gods are helping him to realize his actions can cause harm and negatively impact him personally. If he can't see that SM is the one to mentor him, then he isn't worth any help or hope. I prefer the GGG to be on him till he changes.

I only watched Moon Lovers for couple episodes so I have no idea that it would be that painful.

I think, in this episode, OG thought that he might love SM for real and not just because of GGG, I think, that will foreshadow that the GGG will be taken off sooner than later. I hope SM will realize soon that GGG will torture OG physically and could cause his death so she will finally take it off him and both of them realized that they are in love for real and instead of killing each other they will become OG & SM vs. the world (demons in this case).

 

Good luck for your exam :wink:

Judging from the ep 12 preview, I think the real buja is locked up in the coffin ( see how desperate the real buja tries to open a door in a kind of room , perhaps room in a coffin) and this more powerful and cleverer demon or evil spirit goes into buja’s body. This demon will affect both  OG and MW’s mind and try to make them into evil  and divert their journey to be deity 

 

I’m glad that soon GGG will be taken off fr OG caused now Sj knows how dangerous her power over OG’s life. 

Possible really Bad thing to see if my prediction is right : See how this demon from coffin will try to seduce OG with buja’s “body” ....

 

really look forward to tomorrow’s ep!!

Totally agree with ur insights !

Lets just follow Hong sisters plan for our 3 main characters.

I still have doubt if taking off GGG is the only way... cannot even predicted what will happen after SM take it off.. 

I really love how MW's love has actually ever become a deity. I think she is a human whom deserve such status in heaven.

May be it will be the same with JSM. 

Excited for tomorrow how JSM reacts that SOG hurt because of the GGG, with/without knowinh the reason when SOG disobeys her. This indeed pissed SOG off, knowing the fact that he is no longer immortal bcz of GGG :grin:

i dont understand something from episode 10. i thought Jin Seon Mi can already see ghosts from before she released son oh gong (which made her the SamJang). its weird that when the SamJang transferred to the book lady she also loses her ability to see ghost. I thought when she's no longer SamJang, those evil demons will not be attracted to her blood anymore, but still retains her ability to see ghosts. I dont know whether its a missing plot or its a deliberate plot that will be explained in later episodes. still love this drama so much though.

So child sunmi symbolizes special skills in her.. including ghost seeing..whatever abilities child had.. when child left..those abilities left

 

so i don't undrstand.. from where is everyone getting an idea that GGG will be taken off?

I don't see any hints to that..

 

and well.. if they have to follow the essence of actual story.. ggg should never be taken off..

monk can choose to not use it to control monkey but it wasn't taken off
