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.)

 

 

Rain, Joowon, and Park Hae jin fans are really nice  to her. True..their chinese fans are really supportive of her. 

These 3 actorsalso said she is the most comfortable actress to work with

 

Even Janghyuk fans start to adore her after SOG. as well . They even want to create a dcgall for her. I remember she was so bubbly in every bts 

 

while in this drama....

i don't know why tvn never want to show her bts? I saw some comments  on Naver asking why there is never a bts/ making clips for Samjang... 

Lee Seung Gi pairing with Oh Yeon seo is actually my most favourite coupling but i really hate the hates she got from it

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

I think it would be interesting if MW try to use both of them and first betray OG then try to backstab that shaman. It would be so repetitive if it's all OG And MV plan and he do as what they planned before. Remember he once tried to burn that picture in early eps and trap him there forever and it was OG contract with sm that saved him not GGG.

As a LSG fan i must apologize to you.  Sorry for those harsh comments on OYS . I actually like their chemistry i just dont have my pc to make my fanart for them juat like i did in gfb bfore . *Sigh i think they just dont know thatt the original monk tuanzang is actually boring as a character if they just try to learn where OYS coming from they should understand that.  More importantly its actually the first time ive seen lsg have a mature relationship/chemistry with her co star . Its actually refreshing to see . But then again i apologize . :confused:

Lol you don't need to apologize. Lee Seung Gi fans Airen are actually reallly sweet and nice (just like LSG himself) haha. Haters are just everywhere and actresses have it worst

 

i'm loving their chemistry too but yeah maybe people are used to cute feisty female lead?

in this case Samjang is a very serious character. OYS herself said her real life character is so opposite from samjang

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. .. 

I already go to the site and spread my love there :blush: I can't doing nothing when it's come to spread love to reduce hate. 

 

I like OYS, when i read the hate comment about her, it make me become more and more like her and want to spread my love to her, she is a good and talented actress and good person, i can't stand seeing people bash a kind person. Anyway it's not LSG fans who bash OYS, it the haters. Haters gonna hate

OMG I hate that OYS got some harsh comments. I think she is perfect as Samjang. What can you expect from someone who has been alone for all of her life? She doesn't have friends, family, or lover, so of course she will be plain and quiet and boring person. :crazy: It will be really weird if she is a lonely person but her character is bubbly and cheerful.:crazy: I think in this drama, she portrayed a mature beauty and definitely different from her previous dramas. I like her in Come back Mister, but I love her here in Hwayugi (her chemistry with LSG are sizzling!). 

 

It's absurd to say that LSG doesn't like her because of the scandal. I think they wasn't interacted a lot in bfs because the bfs was painfully short and I think they had really tight schedule so they couldn't play around too much. From the press conference and the wiki interview, I think they quite close and that events were from their early stage of shooting. Is, maybe they are closer now. :D

 

In the last episode, when the evil BuJa had a thought to possess SunMi, I love the idea of the demon to possess SunMi for a short time. Maybe we can see more of OYS's acting capabilities as another character. Having OYS acts to seduce LSG wasn't a bad idea. :tongue:

 

I'm curious how the next episode will deal with OG and SM's relationship. In the original drama, yes, OG can duplicate himself so I expect that ability to shows up here. PK will definitely help SM to defeat the evil spirit because of course he wants to have original BuJa back. I don't really understand the role of the octopus prince and SOJ in this drama. SOJ is supposed to be in the main team in the original story. He is more important for the story rather than the bull demon in the Chinese drama. But here, he was only there to clean something and do nothing. So I'm curious how the writer had in mind for his character.

Also for the octopus prince, why is he sticking around in Alice's body? I mean, he doesn't have anything to do and just following PK. :blink:

I couldnt wait to watch ep12 sub yesterday, but it was too slow and had to read the recap yesterday night. just finish downloading the ep12 and while waiting was catching up on the forum here...

 

First thought, what was OYS scandal on WGM - not really familiar with the actress in the first place...

Second - yes, Buja... why are you so naive?

Third - SM why becoming more clueless?

Fourth - SOG - you're cute... hahhaa (watched all the butlers yesterday, apparently LSG was filming for last week's episodes when he filmed ep6 of the butlers - man, winter is no joke in South Korea :)

Let me give some answers

#2 since her brain is rotting, that is why. 

#3 I guess since no one tell her yet. She thought that saeryong is aeryong. But later she'll find it out.

#4 ohhh!! same here I watch MITH as well!! He is so SOG here! I love LSG more and more. Lol

thanks Stargazer... yes, i read about the pun on her brain rotting from DB's recap... funny... she is making everyone exasperated with her lack of concern over her safety... yes, we know she is not technically alive, but it doesnt mean viewers do not care about her... :)

 

on point no.4 - yes, the butlers were all baffled when the 'master' ignored them. You can see Seung-gi's expression, - what and why did 'master' do that? And everyone's (irritated) reaction with sang yun's failure to join them on putting their faces on the snow. I wish for their sake, the show can find more famous people for them to visit, or else, they might ran out of ideas on who would be comfortable enough to let them in into their lives...

 

Continuing on watching ep12 - :)

Well in the original Journey to the West, Samjang wasn't powerful or even able to fend for himself. He was just a Human monk given the task of retrieving sutras. That was why he needed Sun Wukong's protection. 

 

In Hwayugi being Samjang isn't a noble calling but a punishment. And although she was somewhat special, born with the ability to see ghosts and some monsters, that was all she can do (so far). So in some sense she was like the male Samjang, defenseless against the evil beings. And she needs SOG too. 

 

What's different I guess is that she's a female.  If it's a dude that SOG is protecting, I won't care two hoots about SM/SJ. But as a female myself I really want to see female leads being able to hold their own and able to save the male leads back. I have to confess I'm one of those who are hoping that SJ/SM will have some other forms of special abilities that make her less defenseless, more of a worthy "half" to SOG. There is a great disparity btw SM and SOG at the moment and if not for GGG, she would have been his snack long time ago. 

 

If you have watched the movie Wonder Woman you would understand what I mean. In that movie Wonder Woman is the special one; she's stronger than all the men and totally capable of protecting herself. What's great about that movie is the male lead wasn't some weakling that needed saving etc. He was equally courageous. And it was the human male lead who taught WW: 

 

".. THAT ONLY LOVE CAN TRULY SAVE THE WORLD.." 

 

So in short I'm hoping to see further development for SJ/SM. Maybe she will become a "Wonder Woman" and save SOG (somehow!). That will make her even more loveable, even more precious! 

 

I have really been surprised by this drama so far and totally loving it because they break so many conventions. Hopefully this will last all the way till the end.

I love this drama, I enjoy it more than Goblin. It’s unpredictable story and the long wait for the subs is unbearable but I still watch it every weekend. Haters are everywhere, I just ignore them and I hardly read comments on blogs. Well, sometimes I do read them for fun. Lol..their ignorance are quite funny actually. Tbh, I also have my fav and not so fav actresses/actors but I keep my personal judgment to myself. I mean, it won’t change anything right? 

 

This forum is enough for me, my happy place...

Finally watched ep 12 with sub. And the way I see it, the two latest episode layed out to build the next episode. Upon their meeting ( OG, MW and SBR ) it was said that the evil priestess  

can manipulate a person's mind. Then basically, she can’t manipulate the great sage since OG is not human, but here’s the but, the scene with BJ/ASN and the CEO demon, he noticed how differ BJ eating habit, ASN rebuked him and said to him that she is left-handed. How it was possible? They’re both immortal. 

Back to OG being under spell, yes it might be possible because we saw the flower petal reflects in his eyes ( as we all knows petals is her element to do evil ) and OG admitted that the evil priestess is strong that is why he refuse to handle it at first but he thought about SM. For me, this scenario is 30% possible and 70% impossible. Because OG is the great sage, equal to heaven. They will not pin and bind him for no reason if he is not strong. right now his weakness is his love for SM and at the same time it is his strenght too.

About the presidential candidate, I’m expecting to see him controlled by the priestess,  that dude is a bad tomato after all.
