Thanks for the link! Go spread your love there.  I just did! Sometimes people are not aware of the depth of the drama.. We can just share with them our thoughts! They can don't agree with us but at least we provide them with a different perspective. .. 

 

@Wendy Wang I agree with you that this drama is better than Dots and Goblin because the narrative just gets better with each episode.. I m always looking forward to the next episode and how things unfold...

Yes! There's always an element of surprise and mystery that draws me in. And honestly, this is kinda unrelated but , I'm also 40% in it for Oh Yeon Seo and Lee Seung Gi's chemistry, and 10% just for Lee Seung Gi :tongue:

Character development? I've seen enough character development in the first half of this drama. There's a limit.  I'm satisfied.

I love this  drama bcs it's unpredictable. This is the first time in K-drama history we've got the  strongest female villain like Hela in Thor Ragnarok.

 

 

 

I want SeungGi and YeonSeo to be friends in real life. Both of them have the same personality.

Seriously.. it's just so easy to say mean things theough your keyboards.

 

character growth? They have a lot.

Sunmi is already beyond mature.. what she needs to do is be more open and bright.

but the situation doesn't allow her to.

 

OG? Do i need to say more about this monkey development? He is not the stuck up Great sage anymore. He starts to care about others because of Samjang

After watching 11 & 12

 

I like the zombi and O Gong the best as far as characters go. So I was pretty happy with these episodes since we saw a lot of them.   After that it is Mw, the dog lady and the pig idol.  This little episode is a bit different since the priestess is not a normal demon.  She is humanish. Probably was human and transformed with certain powers.  She was sealed in under the tree who was keeping her locked in.  The spirit of the tree (was it a demon - not sure) was chased away by MW.   So priestess got out.
I am not sure what the deal is with the chaebol guy.   But it appears likely he wants her to make him a King.

 

I did love the way zombi said good bye to everyone.  I would have liked her as a match with O Gong - more than SM.  SM  pretty and  is doing okay, but doesn't really draw me in.   SM as the little girl was chill though.   Wish they got someone more like her to play the adult.   

 

And then there is this blah guy Jonathon hanging around. He gave SM a necklace. Maybe he is working for a demon and when and if she puts the necklace on something will happen to her?   There has got to be a reason this boring guy is in the show. It's not like SM has shown the least bit of interest in him (Is Jonathon or a Deity even a choice?).   

 

I can't wait until O Gong gets released from that darn bracelet. That suspense music crescendo as SJ reached out to the bracelet this time was a hoot.

My ideal ending would be sunmi dying for the world n eventually rise as a diety for her noble sacrifice. And then she can finally be with OG for eternity :’) :’) :’) !!! 

Thank you for writing this. It is also my ideal wish for the ending. Hahahaha... I was so pissed after done watching ep 12. And I've planned will put this on hold until it has 4 eps or more for future weeks. 

 

Having reading so many comments on db and here made me feel a lot better. I can calm myself and read both positive and negative views here and there comfortably.

 

@marinated_lemon I do have a doubt that he would be that easily possessed by the priestess. I think the writer intentionally to make it look like so, they lead our mind to think that MW will betray him for saving his love. But I'm feeling that they may have some good plan to turn up the situation. But if they really go down the betrayal trope and OG is really possessed, then what's the deal with the great sage and equal to heaven if he is easily bewitched by that mere priestess.

 

@stroppyse

I wasn't ammused with this episodes, I don't like they ending it with possessed BJ sitting on his lap. It's pissed me off! I want him to get rid of her like how he did to the book demon. I want to smack her away from him too! Lol... 

 

Oh... poor SM. Can someone tell her that the bell isn't love bell. I do disappointed when she refused the bracelet. Cause I really want to see that he still loves her even it is taken off. Remember even he tricks her and return to his 'napoeun neomiya' self.. there is still the valid contract of protecting her as long as she's alive. Ep 1 clearly told us that he can't killed him. And I believe in OG's heart, as he mumbled to himself, he still loves her even without the bracelet. 

 

Feeling sad for BJ. And am I the only one who glad that the priestess eat those two men as her offerings. They deserved it! They're not human as well as that jerk politician.

 

I miss the OTP moments here!! Sighh.. I hope no separation or triangle tropes here. One wish I had, I want the writers would give SM such a powerful power as the twist which make her not as weak as she is now. I want her to fight back and protect herself for once with her own.  

 

P.S.

did someone notice that the bracelet emerge some dark powers when it tightened OG's heart?? Does that because of he didn't obey her command or what? But he stops right away and it starts to hurt his heart like that. It should stop him before that anyway. Does this mean he forcefully gets back to his sense, I mean controlling his anger because of SM's calling him? His red eyes flash off and got hurt still. Why?

 

End of my ranting. Continue reading the comments.

I love this drama but gonna stop for a while.  I'm a fan of OYS so i'm a bit sick of the people bashing her for no reason....

 

I even read comments about LSG won't like OYS in real life because of her WGM scandal.

it's just ridiculous...can't you just appeeciate rhe actress  *roll eyes*

 

I miss my otp but gonna stop reading these comments first. Yes she is the female lead , deal with it. I'd rather OG kill her if people want to.  Let him end up with Buja/ Ah Seo nyeo/Sec dog

whatever

First of all I should say that I totally enjoyed ep11 and 12 and I think this drama is getting better and better and it has a fresh vibe in it hope they don't ruin this brilliant drama by trying satisfy everyone and make it like majority of korean dramas that becomes predictable for the second half.

What I like about this drama the most is how realistic the characters are.  They all have some kind of selfishness in their characters and are different from usual kdrama characters who are so immersed in love.and I really liked how they built their characters and their development.

And about that spellbind  that would control OG I think he will act normal and we won't see its affect right away and it will show itself in an important moment when that shaman is in danger.

I do hope that SM actually has the sealed power of shaman inherited from her ancestor or her grandma maybe.. that she isn't aware or it locked for some reasons or something. Then this new evil priestess comes to awaken that power out of her. I remember to see a trailer videos on early promotions of Hwayugi. A video of Hwayugi three main characters, OG, MW and SJ. OG with the flames on his eyes and hands, and SM as samjang shows off in more menacing style. 

 

Writers, at least let her stop being that damsel in distress for one second. Sighh.. early SM is much strong and feisty tho.  

 

As Fairy Ha refers to OG when he asked about how powerful a shaman is, I think maybe there some clue he get there. Anyway.. I see some loophole which can make the next episodes will be as fun as I have watched before or it gets draggy for some episodes by dealing the evil priestess matter. At least let her go out from BJ first. I guess I can't stand to watch her in BJ's body acting up so sly to seduce OG. Lol

Yes Exactly my thoughts! 

 

I could not understand why people keep on bashing OYS for acting so blandly and has a weak character . 

I feel it is unfair for her to get those hateful comments while in my point of view, she has done areally great job portraying someone as a human with weakness and vulnerability. Come on, she is a human whose blood draws attraction from demons and all spirits with superpowers. 

And from her background and childhood i do believe she has portrayed a strong, clever woman in a modern era who is capable to be independent (in a normal way without any evil spirit) , but not to be compared to that priestess/evil buja who in fact has a superpower in thw first place, or compared to OG, MW, sec Dog, PK, OJ, or all those demons with all their superpowers.

no don’t . this drama needs more fans like you who support a strong female lead who’s doing her best despite writters ruining things for her . seunngi fans are really relieved he’s acting with such a fine actress like oh yeon seo . hopefully otp will pickup steam from next episode onwards . 

 

oh gong will be glad he has ggg on because ggg will save him once again and he might ask her never to remove it again untill they stop the apocaylipse . and evil prisetess in in buja’s body who will naturally will be in #teamsamjang .

I love this drama and everyone is doing a wonderful job with their characters.

i know jsm is not a person very bright and is always wearing black coats

That makes her look to serious or plain. The only thing i want the production to change that black coats with a little brighter colors.  Or just to wear green lol after all that is her fav color. If she did not tell sog that green is her fav color i would of always thought black was her fav color since she wears black all the time.

So far i love this drama and have nothing to judge. 

 

About hate comments 

OYS gets hate on every roll she plays for no reason.  I read  comments on YouTube, some know she is a great talented actress but they just don’t like her because she don’t have that cutesy charming Aura/vibe :rolleyes: or because they think she don’t have that aura to be a lead actress and don’t match the lead actor or she looks too old to be partner  with the leading man.  I got used reading this type of comments about her so i dont pay attention or bothers me but  what it hurts me is when they cannot blash her acting skills so they bring wgm scandal to JUDGE HER REAL LIFE CHARACTER/PERSONALITY.

i have seen less hate on her in this drama. So i am happy and i feel that her character jsm is getting the more hate  but maybe i am wrong Since i read the top comments because i couldn’t continue Read all because they started hating OYS. 

If they hate her character JSM i don’t mind since nit everyone will like her character because it is not an usual character acting cute or bright but when they start saying bad things about her real persona(her real self) i get sad.

Right we as OYS fan have had enough.

Some hate comments i read are like "Can't she even permed her hair? Even Lee Seeyoung looks prettier"

God forbids an actress who stay true to her character as a samjang.

 

Bringing WGM scandal to bash her is worst of the worst. She had a super difficult time and almost gave up her dream as an actress that time  (i don't think she did anything wrong). Luckily Jang Bori made her famous again... 

eventhough you are an actor fan how can you say something like that?

"He won't like her in real life because of her WGM scandal"

 

seriously no respect

Wow I didn't know that lot of people don't like OYS as an actress. I loved all her works till now. She can play all kind of roles. Yeah she looks not her age at all and looks more mature, but thats what I like about her. She is different and you see how talented she is. I really can't understand people..just enjoy the work and don't be personal. You don't know all actors personality.

 

As for the episodes.. BJ :( why does she have to go through so much pain. She is killed twice and found her mum and now she is possesed. Poor girl :(

I somehow think its a little dragging now. I don't know if this part with BJ is the main plot where SJ or OG will be killed. But in some post I read that the death bell didn't ring because of OG. That MW was there too. I also think the end of the world is MW doing. He loves the women so he wants to be a deity to help her. So I also think he would also destroy a world for her. I think he is the one who kills SJ. So he can be a deity. 

I am really excited how the Hong Sisters will lead the story. I am still sure we will get a happy ending ♡

My poor OYS, i always feel sad when i read comments about her, 

i remember rain/joowon/parkhaejin's fans were nice in their comments but why in that drama...

i don't know about others actresses but she has so many anti.

 

(But the worse will be in march, i'm still mad when i think about what happened to my favorite webtoon,

she was always in all the virtual casting made by fans, it should have been her since the beginning.)

Now they have nothing to say so they usually bash her with "WGM scandal" :rolleyes:

 

 

I'm worried for  next ep. Will Mawang betray OG?

Instead of saying "excuse me" JSM should start calling SOH Oppa (when they're talking face to face) so his heart can have the opposite of his real name being use :D.

Lol.. I was thinking that way while watching it. He complained that she keeps calling him "chogi" "hey" rather than "chagi" "honey". Aww.. this monkey.. he knows well how to flatter her heart. Well.. OG had referred himself as Oppa to little SM. I wish to see he asks her to call him that way. 

 

As many have said already... I really love the part when OG smack the priestess in the back and moved her aside. Then how she throws the roses and heals SM's cut with magic. Then how he told her that she's already that pretty even without the rose. Awww... you sweet monkey!

 

And I think MW won't side with that priestess righttt?? I mean even secretary Ma notice that he cares for OG more than he realizes or whenever he denies it, it obviously showed he does care. 

 

I can bear with the angst as long as it not to be dragged for several episodes. If they make it as in 10. I think it will be pretty bearable. But if they want to make OG got bewitched by the shaman. Noooo... it'll be so depressing to watch even it's for 1 minute.
