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


Recommended Posts

OK so why did the dragon prince have to die? Tbh Piggie did not look critically injured at any time of the episode, he didn't even moan or faint or anything, he wasn't even in pain so bad it impaired his speaking. But instead of getting MW which would have been sensible, the prince just randomly decided to die for him. I mean as a water creature it was probably the worst possible idea to try and share fire and save somebody who could have been saved easier otherwise...

 

When heaven decided to support SJ after she realized her true mission, couldn't they have just taken evil guy out of the equation at the right time? It was so random that he stabbed her to death before anything that was originally planned to take out evil dragon could have been done. Then OG just killed the dragon without breaking a sweat. Or maybe he did have to put some effort to it but honestly he just looked exausted but in no way in danger of death at the end of it so the whole fuss was kind of for nothing and now SJ is dead = =

 

I didn't really understand the logic behind that all....

 

Somewhat disappointed but still believing that next episode all will be well. It's so standard that everything has to go downhill in the one to last episode just to have us appreciate the happy ending in the last episode more. Tbh this episode was a bit strange.

 

PS the scene where OG and SJ stood (probably butt naked) in front of the window with only one blanket over the two of them was somehow cute and sex and really awkward and funny at the same time :D

What a way to end Hwayugi... an epic failure of an ending... a 'sad' ends indeed... oh what could have been...

 Ah well maybe they'll make up to it next episode... don't give up hope? :)

YEEEEEEEESSSS  - Son Oh Gong finally holds his bride in his arms once again (a bride who is wearing a royal wedding dress). Judging from OG's scarf this scene will follow the confrontation with the Wi

It took the Hong Sisters 13 long years to write a bed scene but they managed to  do it right on their first try. I might have issues with their writing in this show but this whole moment was FREAKING

Maybe the build up was too much and this episode felt lackluster in comparison? Either way, I'm going to just enjoy Hwayugi as a package. And I think LSG and OYS did a wonderful job with what they were given.

@rittoo the last two episodes should have carried out the climax of the story whereby the beautiful ending should be properly lay out towards the end of ep 20. The mess in ep 19 ruins the expectation for the ending in ep 20, at least for me. I can basically guess what ep 20 will be... either she dies or given another chance to live since she has fulfilled her purpose or becomes an immortal or many other possibilities but then getting to that ending from this ep 19 is no longer important. Like I mentioned ...it is already anticlimax. :)

I  am not anxious in anyway about the ending or what is to come in episode 20 because...1) I expected episode 19 to end badly and 2) I have a sort of confidence in the writing that it will all work out in the end.  SM is already dead, so it can't get any worse for OG in that department, and if OG dies then there would be nobody left suffering, so it is all good. Anything that happens in episode 20 would have to be an upgrade from a dead SM and devastated and heartbroken OG IMO.

Sunmi's fate as samjang is indeed to contain the evil spirit.

Her blood summoned the black dragon. If OG didn't come on time, that dragon would have entered her body leaving with only two options: she stabs herself or he stabs her.

 

and i wanna see KDS  and ASN being burnt together as punishment

 

 

ps. This ep not only awoken the dragon but a very angry dragon in every viewers lol. So many people delurking sounded angry :D

As I wait for subs, quick shout out of thanks to @countingstarz and @briseis. I love dark humor , sarcastic humor, cynical humor, and humor in general. Big fan B)

 

Im the type of person who sometimes reads the ending of a book mid way. Hence,  my love for spoilers. :wub:

 

I also love to read other pep’s points of views,  reviews, etc. I actually don’t mind the reincarnate route. I actually prefer it over SOG becoming human to tell you the truth. But if it happens. Ah well. <shrugs her shoulders> cest la vi. 

 

To me , this show will become one of my faves. It doesn’t really much matter, to me, the ending anymore.  I guess it’s because I fell in love with the show in episode 3. The journey to me is more important.  

 

Sure, not a perfect drama. But then again I’ve never seen a drama 100% perfect. Plot holes galore, and cgi effects meh/ok, (I don’t really pay attention to much about this to tell you the truth. Plus, cgi effects are expensive.). But the positive aspects out weigh the negatives ones in my mind.

Hello all, been lurking here.

 

Am I the only one who is not totally slaughtering this drama right now (or has been the whole time)? lol. I've loved pretty much every moment, even with the frustrating times, and I have not really minded some inconsistencies with the plot/writing. I think the cast and portrayal have been so strong, it doesn't make me focus on maybe inconsistent parts. I have not been super upset at some CGI, as I never like to compare to other dramas (like how some have been with Goblin etc), and GoT has really set the bar with Western shows so I have not compared to it. I've highly enjoyed this drama and with watching ep 19 episode it was gut wrenching but even with the CGI I was not very upset with it. 

 

I agree with the ones on here about not having reincarnation ending, it doesn't seem like it's heading that direction even though it may look like it. This drama has really shown that you can't trust everything presented to you (esp with previews lol), rather have to look beyond the front and try to digest what may not be said/shown (more like stay on the tip of your toes). I have not taken things concrete. I think that's why I haven't been too upset at there maybe being inconsistencies or how Hong Sisters throw us a different way than we originally thought. Hong Sisters have really taken us above and beyond with this drama lol. I am not totally judging this drama without seeing the last episode. Maybe after then I can process what I didn't like or did like with it. I'm so sad it's the end though :( I've loved this drama so much and OTP and reading all your theories. Also, when will we get that karaoke scene lol it's still on my mind for soooo long.

Thank you for translating the moment when Sunmi was dying

 

when i watched that scene i thought Sunmi last words were

"in this lonely world i grew up in, meeting a man that i love.. i'm really lucky"

 

if she said that It would have broke ny heart even more what a sad and unfair life God has given this girl

I'm rewatching a korean odyssey now, because I'd assumed this final episodes  would be very difficult to watch, I'd be crying a lot and would need some laughter and some joy, before all the mess with ASN and KDS. And I just want to say is amazing how the authors built this love story, and how the characters started developing, how JSM was so reserved, before acknowledging she was SJ, and SOG was so rude at the beginning, but you could see how curious he was about this little girl, and then woman, who waited for him for 25 years, and then who had the most amazing blood. How they banter with each other, how SJ started to appreciate SOG's company, missing him, and slowly falling in love, trusting him, showing him her true personality, and SOG started to see her less like food, and more like a woman, someone he couldn't live without.

 

And now, he is all alone... they've lost so much time (25 years she waited for him), and then the fighting, and with ASN and the tricks, and the GGG, and now he has lost her, now that they both have acknowledge their feelings. She dies, and leaves him all alone. She wanted to grow old, she wanted to see more movies, OMG is so sad.

And just like the white heron... he is all alone without his Samjang, I would also want to forget everything and just disappear. God, I'm so depressed right now.

And honestly, I don't really care about the dragon, the CGI, I'm amazed with the quality of performance from our main couple, their chemistry, and how the characters have evolved. I find  it really beautiful.

And (unpopular opinion) I don't care if the end involves reincarnation of one or the other,, as long as they get together, and don't leave it to be an open ending. Of course, I would prefer it they both end up living HEA in heaven or as deities (like many have said before), but I'll take what I can, and if they end up together, that's fine by me.. as long as it's not with SOG alone, saying "remember my name" looking at the sunset and then: THE END. THAT would kill me.:angry:

@nrbrown & @natsuu i share the same sentiments.

They isn't much the writers could do that i would have a problem with at this stage. How am i going to nitpick a fantasy drama? One could say the whole premise doesn't make sense. A Monkey, Cow & and dog with Powers/Magic? I am going to allow the writer to finish telling their story, and at the end i'll say whether i vibed with it or not. So far i can say i thoroughly enjoyed the drama. I liked it's quirkiness and unpredictability and the acting is on point. Most of all i enjoyed the love story not only because of the story telling, but also the acting. I felt the love, i felt the fear, i felt the uncertainty, i felt the desperation, i felt the anguish and i felt the joy.

Thank you. You said the words i wanted to say

this drama isn't perfect ( no drama is actually)  esp with this 100% fantasy drama involving monkey king, bull, pig, demon, octopus, zombie and a human being

 

so far the love  story, chemistry, and acting of the two leads have touched my heart so much. I can't diiferentiate it's LSG-OYS or OG-Sunmi anymore because the way they look at each other with those natural skinships+passionate kiss make me questioned reel or real?:wub:

 

i also love Mawang with Sec Dog. I'm   annoyed by MW for being a stubborn and selfish bull but i still adore him, hoping that his son would heal his pain after thousand years longing for his love. 

Gotta admit that  Pig and dragon are really unnecessary. Their characters are just too shallow to move anyone. Feel so bad for Buja, i want her to meet her unnie and pk brother for the last time.

 

i guess Sunmi being stabbed is to ease  the pain for a tiny bit which could be more unbearable   if OG stabbed her. Although it would be better if she stabbed  KDS first then stab herself.

 

this will be my overtime fav drama and fave couple ever if they gave us a  satisfactory happy ending:)

Just now watching the RAW version and I literally had tears in my eyes when SOG cried and screamed after SM died. That is one of the most heartbreaking scene for me after Goblin. The GGG surprised me since it helped kill the dragon. So it does have more powers to it than I thought. 

 

Tomorrow's episode will make me cry as well when OG cries at the tower. LSG became one of my favorite actors now. OYS will be one too. Please give us a wedding and the things they wanted to do together, Writer-nims, for the finale! 

 

Also, I will miss this thread when it's over tomorrow! You all have been great with your opinions and love for the drama. :)

I am not watching this episode until tomorrows episode finishes. I am going to stay positive and think that sadness is given in this episodes so that happiness can be given in tomorrows final episode. I think when you are given happiness in the 2nd to last episode the shoe of unhappiness will definitely drop in the last episode. So nothing but up from here guys, shin up.
