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

Recommended Posts

Two more weeks of Hwayugi and then it is the end! There isn't anything on the DC Inside page about an extension, so maybe they will end it at 20 episodes. 

 

I am happy that the writers are working on all the loose ends of the drama. We finally now why the death bell rang and exactly how the death was supposed to happen. But it looks like OG is changing that fate.

 

One think I don't understand, did the White Heron want to die because she still loved her Sam-jang, or did she just want to die because she didn't want to live on Earth anymore? I was confused about that part.

The heavens/spiritual realm decision makers in this show are very cruel. 

yess!! very cruel, cold and heartless, they even used genuine emotions such as OG amd MW's love for their gain, yet they demand sacrifice.

Doc: Because you're the protector of SJ.

OG: What the hell are you?

Doc: I was just like you, the protector of the previous SJ.

OG: They said they will send SJ, before a disaster happens on the world. JSM must not have been the first one. And...

Doc: A sword will appear soon. And you will happen to stab SJ with that sword. A long time ago, like I did. In this world, a huge devil made by bad spirits will appear. And SJ's body will receive it. That's the purpose of SJ.

OG: After that?

Doc: With the descended sword, you kill her together with the devil and stop the thing that disturb the world.

OG: So, the Death bell rang because it was decided like that. What's the reason you called me and tell me things like that?

Doc: I have something I need your help with. When you get that sword, help me so that I can die. Without him, living this long life alone, is too painful.

 

HEAVEN IS TOO CRUEL. THEY HAVE BEEN DOING THINGS LIKE THIS SINCE FOREVER REPEATEDLY. THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT THE ONES SUFFERING AS LONG AS THEY ARE FINE. SELFISH RICHARD SIMMONS.

All of them want to harm samjang and OG will use all his power to protect his bride.

 

i feel sick in the stomach watching those deities of heaven rejoicing over the sword as time is coming  . They are worst than human... gosh

i hope OG will burn the whole heaven... i feel so unfair for sunmi.

 

everytime i see her, i still can see the hopeful little girl in her eyes (that's why i said OYS acting is great). I feel like putting her on my pocket.. poor girl

Why does MW suddenly want to eat SamJang? I think he will lose his points for that.. :huh: Gosh, I have a love-hate relationship with MW. hahaha..  

 

He wants to eat SJ in order to become stronger to defy the heavens. He's angry that he may have been fooled into thinking his child is dead, that the heavens had deliberately lied to him. However, he is much weaker now than he used to be. So, he wants to become more powerful in order to get revenge.

Today's episode sounds depressing :( I just want OTP to get married and have cutes babies and live happily ever after because it's what they deserve. Especially SM , despite her tragic life she is so pure , she doesn't deserve to be stabbed to death or lose the love of her life because let's be real, this show is so unpredicatable and OG still has an equal chance of dying. I know this is the turning point of the show but I really miss all the light hearted fluffiness of the earlier episodes. And let's not get started on MW and his continuous backstabbing and the fact that it was okay for someone else to collect points on his behalf is really telling about the spiritual realms ruling, like these people need to go <_< I  wonder if there's a specific reason why OG was chosen to protect her because the previous protector completed her mission just fine and she's nowhere near as powerful as the great sage, that's why I'm hoping OTP defies the heavens and their stupid fate drama and overthrows them cause they suck.

 

Alsooo who is that baby ?? Is he the next generation's SJ or could it be OG junior from the future lol.

The previous protector was not able to protect her Sam Jang. That everything worked out for the two of them was just a story that OG told SM to make her feel better about things. Rather, something happened where the woman had to kill her Sam Jang, and she had to live on. There is an implication there that the woman protector and her Sam Jang had loved each other as well.

 

edit: I guess the Sam Jang is supposed to be possessed by an evil spirit, and the protector has to then kill the Sam Jang who embodies the evil spirit in order to save the world from the evil spirit.

 

SM then says to OG at one point that if one of them was to die and one remained, that the one remaining would have the harder time of it for a long, long time.

 

I'm not sure who the baby is, but the woman protector/orphanage director had said when OG brought the baby back to her that it had not been his time to be born yet, so the baby seems to have been a device to bring SM to her. Whether the baby is special beyond that, we'll have to wait to see. Given the symbolism of the stork, however, plus MW noting how the baby resembles OG, I'm hoping that it's OG and SM's future baby.

What if the baby is Oh Gong and Seon Mi's baby in the future? Like the previous guardian said it wasnt his time to come to this world? And Ma Wang saying he looks like Oh Gong?

 

Oh please...no deaths involving anyone especially our OTP. I NEED ONE EPISODE OF THEM AS A MARRIED COUPLE

Actually we can be hopeful that there'll be a twist. After all our SOG isn’t gonna go with heaven's original plans. Our SJM is infused with new power. Our MW is angry with the heavens. Surely 3 of them combined will be greater than the evil that's to come? 

 

MW will be redeemed, I really believe so. All this time he's not a totally bad monster. I really hope their kid is SJM. That will surely be enough reason for him to fight against her fate to be a sacrificial lamb. :wub:

 

And gosh, what kind of solution is that? To offer up the blood of one to prevent a catastrophic future... Every time! Doh!

The orphanage director tells SM about when SM was born.

 

 

Woman: Thank you for bringing the baby safely back to me. (to the baby) Baby, you’ve suffered a lot. It’s not time for you to be born yet. I’ve made you travel.


Woman: Jin Seon Mi, you’ve grown up a lot. I was here when you were born as well.
SM: Yes? But you look so young… Ahh, you’re not human.
OG: That’s right. The one who called me to come here with you was this person.
Woman: I am Baek Laura.
SM: Do you know me?
Woman: I know your maternal grandmother very well. You were a special granddaughter that she cherished very much.
SM: You do? But, what is the reason that you called me here?
Woman: That you are not a child of misfortune, i wanted to let you know that. (flashback) There was a sudden outbreak of disease that affected a lot of people. Because it was a small village, the patients overflowed this place. The ones infected died quickly, and this place became a war zone. Among the patients, there was a pregnant woman. From the moment the pregnant woman came in, I could sense it. That a baby who would save lives was going to be born. The mother died, but the baby was born safely, and that baby immediately started saving people’s lives. The disease disappeared in that moment. (end flashbacks) Though no one is aware of this, from the moment you were born, you were born saving lives, Sam Jang.
SM: You’re saying I saved them?
Woman: Your destiny was determined from your birth. Of course, that your blood smells like lotus flower probably started from the time you met your protector.

 

 

So, it seems that the disease was possibly born of evil spirits, and SM as SJ was able to vanish the evil spirits with her cries. Good to know that it wasn't meeting OG who turned her into SJ, but that she had been SJ all along. It explains SM's specialness as a child.

Okay - yes - I have a hate and love relationship with MW too - but I have a huge understanding for him too..

 

OG said it - MW must suffered like that for 1000 years - just one day was too much for OG. ANd even the witch is evil she is not always wrong - she is very good at finding out the sensitive spots and uses them.

 

The Heaven treats MW like a Dog. They think they could tame him. He once was powerful - he loves a strong deity - and she was pregnant and born his Child - MW must have been happy back than and felt sure - very mighty.

But what happen - the heaven allows his child to get sick ... to the extend to die. But Iron Fan tried to rescue her child (male or female doesn´t matter). She broke the rule of heaven and used souls from human childs to rescue her kid. MW was not around when Iron Fan was punished - and his child - they told him died.

We are sure - that was a lie....

So MW gave up his powerful weapon to the heaven and started to try hard to earn points to become a deity himself - but he needes to watch his love beeing in pain again and again - and she always looses her child again... thats so cruel.

If the Heaven is almighty why couldn´t they save the child? MAybe there where scared about a child beeing born from two so powerful. A deity and a demon.

MW is unloyal - but on the other hand he is loyal - he is so loyal to his one love - and somehow to Doggy too.

I wonder how those two met.

So - MW was sended to earch and the Witch was right - he gave up what was his to let the heaven tame him - for so many years.

 

I was angry when the GGG was used to tame the powerful Monkey - the Heaven did it before. Looks like the life in heaven is boring so they need something to entertain than. I understand very well why MW goes more and more angry. He just sufferes a lot and got blind to broke the cruel spell from his Love - and now he finds out that his child never was dead... and yes - only the witch told him that. Without her - he would not even know that by now.

 

So - honestly - I think we have no right to be angry with MW. He will become the Devil again as I see it - but can we blame him?

Heaven tries to play chest - thats how it looks for me - and they are so excited to watch what will happen when the sword  come in the picture again. But damn - this time the chest figures will turn the table. As I hope and wish to see...

Ayooo.... why lah... all this sad stuff every episode like never ending... I don’t mind on bumping into spirits and ghosts in the first 10 episodes.... and fighting the evil spirits but since episode 11, it has been all about getting ready to die, no one to trust, betrayal, and fate to die ....the only consistent is SOG..... WHO continue to live....and love....  SJ... can you have a little bit of faith and not to be too innocent after all what had happened to you. Daaaaaaa..

In my humble opinion, I’m convinced that MW’s child is JSM/SJ. I think it also wasn’t a coincidence that SJ received the death bell. I think the heavens steers the SJ’s to their ‘required’ paths. SOG will try to convince SJ to ‘rebel’, but most likely she will be the one to make the choice to die. This will ultimately end ‘her punishment ‘ from being MW’s child (the sins of our fathers?).

Again in the end things will turn out fine. Some peps are worried that the end will be in the lines of Goblin. I honestly don’t think it will. Goblin was a lot more tragic. I don’t think there was comedy in each episode as there is in this show. I think SOG, MW and JSM will ultimately open a family restaurant. 

And in regards to ratings dropping, I think it’s because SK is the host country. Nationalistic pride tends to swell up (especially when they win medals) so less watching of shows.

SM: I've never walked this road in a good mood. I've always been alone or the kids would bully(?) me.

OG: Do you like it now?

SM: First of all, didn't she say my fate wasn't your fault. Since that means, it's not your fault no matter what happens to me, so i like it.

OG: Now, you're not scared?

SM: Yes. It seems I'm a bit more important person, and I have powers too so I'm less(?) scared. If I got more powerful, I won't be scared anymore. Like you.

OG: When did I tell you I'm not scared? Because of you, I'm so scared I feel like I'm gonna die.

SM: You said I'm your greatest weakness, right? I hate it. I'm gonna become stronger and I will remove this. After removing this, If you don't find me beautiful at all, run away. But, if you find me even a little bit beautiful, I'm gonna hold on to you tight.

OG: Let's go.

SM: Btw, My grandmom must have known you will come. Whenever I talked about the fairy, she said he'll definitely come back.

OG: Didn't that doctor said she's really close with your grandma?

SM: Yes.

 

Doc: SOG, you must have something you're more curious about though.

 

SM: I'm sorry. You should have leave work first,

HJ: It's ok. I'm about to go too. Oh. You got it back.

SM: What?

HJ: The ring. Son must have gave it back. I just said one thing to him. No matter how severe the objection is. if you love someone, you should take her away. Let's go.
