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

Recommended Posts

Hello Chingus,

I stopped watching this show on episode 4 bc I was starting to feel super attched to the OTP and somehow it felt like Another Goblin was on the way... Goblins ending completely devastated me, Im still not over it and decided to marathon Hwayugi after it ended just in case.. NOW thats never gonna happen and Im so glad I did so.

I really feel for all of you guys who have been following this live. It does feel like an insult to end things in such a lame way. I really think these dramas should be pre produced to deliver prpper quality and avoid poor and rushed eriting, especially at the end. It is not fair on the actors who work so hard and in the audience who stays loyal and unconditional until the end. I learnt my lesson with Goblin, in my opinion kdrama cant be watched live, your heart may be shattered...

It was one hell of a ride.. but reading everyone’s comments here in the forum really made the drama more enjoyable.

 

the ending is what it is, and i decided to just accept it, knowing that SM is probably immortal now. She didn’t reincarnate, and OG will find her, and they will be reunited :)

 

I didn’t regret chasing Hwayugi till the very end. I mean, look at that smoking hot Lee Seung Gi! This drama has turned me into a LSG and OYS fan, and i’ll be sure to watch all of their future works from now on.

 

Goodbye for now everyone! Hope to see all of you again in another drama.

Haven't watched the last 2 episodes yet..... so maybe I'll feel cheated after all when I do watch them? :)

 

But my perspective on the ending on reading the recap = it's fine.

 

Seriously, it would have been better if they showed him driving the OTHER WAY on that bridge and reaching down to hold somebody's hand and showing the rings before showing him smiling and fading out. That would have been more closure than the buildup of hope which the writers left us with.

 

If they add one more minute to the last episode to SHOW this, I'd be very happy.  :wink: 

 

But buildup of hope = fine.

 

I don't think they need a 2nd season.

 

I don't think there's enough plot for a 2nd season. Or not enough plot without UNDOING everything that was neatened up at the end of 20?

 

OG and SM are already in love, they've already consummated that love, and they are already sworn to find each other and live hea. They aren't "together" at the end, but it seems pretty clear that they WILL BE. There was no where else to go. Even "marriage" was already DONE in the series. 

 

All other ends have been tied up neatly.

I am speechless , that was literally the worst ending they could have possibly given us imo :bawling:  Im seriously offended at how bad it was, how did the show go from being this amazingly cute fluffy show to giving us one of the most garbage endings I've ever witnessed.I never expected to get so attached to this show but yet here I am feeling like I got stabbed with the sword too. I feel betrayed that that we spent three months supporting this drama and the Hong sisters repaid us with such a lazy, craptastic end. The first 18 episodes are my absolute faves and I will always love them so I guess I'm just going to pretend that the last 2 episodes never happened.

 

I just wanna say a big thank you to the cast, they’ve been amazing and I appreciate every single one of them, they were all perfect in their respective roles. And to LSG and OYS, can I just say WOW, as someone who has watched many Korean dramas; this is the first time I’ve been completely blown away by the leads’ chemistry. I really really hope to see them together again in whatever capacity that may be :lol:

The moment featuring Son Oh Gong heading off to hell to get his Seon Mi back is awesome but not for a conclusion. That’s something that should have happened in the first half of the episode which should have started with that goodbye on Namsan. What was the point of that pointless and ilogical amnesia plot?! Nothing it only killed 60 minutes of the episode - 60 minutes that ended up being a complete filler instead of giving answers and closure. The final episode was all over the place and anticlimatic.

 

Such an ending would be appropriate if there was going to be an epilogue, a movie or a second season but there won’t be so it feels incomplete and unsatisfying. The viewer doesn’t doubt that OG will get SM back since he is a deity now and can meddle with the fate of humans and no god can really compare to his powers. However, the point of watching 20 episodes of drama is because you expect a closure which unfortunately didn’t happen. It’s not the worst ending ever but one of the most unsatisfying definitely.

 

 

Yupp, Hwayugi The movie will be great ahahahha, but i don't think about hong sister will make hwayugi into a big screen LOL, son oh gong become immortal / deity because he erase his name in the death-life book, so he won't die or reincarnated, but yeah to take sunmi for the land of death is just a piece of cake for him  ahahahha

Yup same here... Didn't really like the last episode but I LoVED the other 19 episodes... So it was a good ride! I was disappointed because i was hoping for the drama to end on a High note... 

 

Did not regret chasing Hwayugi as it gave me an opportunity to read fabulous analysis and discuss the drama with all you AMAZING people! 

 

Thanks for all the recaps and analysish. They helped me to tide through the long wait every week...

 

It still remains one of the best dramas i have watched..

Okay so maybe LSG came with secret door?? Or he came late because he just went to his movie promotion... Soon OYS also will be busy with her movie promotion...

 

I pray the best for LSG and OYS... They deserve got acknowledge because of their tallents.. I hope they can meet in others project, maybe better in movie with best writer and story... I worship their chemistry on screen. They're so good together as SOG and JSM

well to be fair to the Hong Sisters, here's the official Hwayugi description byline...

"Using the motif of Journey to the West, Hwayugi is a story about decadent bad boy demon/monster Son Oh Gong and graceful gentle demon/monster Woo Ma Wang searching for light in a dark world." :dizzy:

 

so its means the main story is not about samjang and oh gong, but oh gong and mawang LOL
