While it wasn't a smash hit, it was still a hit and there are many dramas that arent hit at all but still get a second season. In Hwayugi's case this could be a little tough because of the all star cast.

nah.. given the cost, hype, expectation... it was not really a winner.. wich is unfortunate.. because it started really well.. it had to be reply , prison , goblin level hit to be considered for a season 2..

 

there was some other low cost show that year that surpassed hwayugi .. infact a couple of them.. will have to recollect names

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

Oh no.. with everyone hating on the ending, i think i wanna step out to defend it a little. initially without the subtitles, the ending seemed like a whole mess. But if u really just focus on our OTP

tvn weekend dramas (8 pm KST) ratings rocketed straight up after My Golden Life and  2018 Winter Olympics ended.

Unlucky Hwayugi. :( 

But still, I'm happy that Hwayugi popularity was proven through SOG haircut among korean teenagers and kids. :lol:

Found this drama to be highly enjoyable as Goblin which shares similar storyline, ie. lead actor / actress fate will be ended with either one of them taking the other party life which makes it somewhat a tragic love story that would leave a lasting memory on the audiences..... 

 

each episode progresses with very interesting events where i found its side plots / characters are meaningful in developing the storyline unlike other typical dramas which are meant to only lengthen the drama screening period to 1 hour...

 

moreover, i did not realise the lead actress was the same one that had appeared in Come Back Mister opposite Rain which shows her acting ability was not fully revealed in that drama...two thumbs up for Oh Yeon Seo performance...

 

finally, the jokes & humours thrown by Lee Seung Gi and Cha Seung Won really made this drama a worthwhile watch.. :-)

This is a good place to process the ending. Read the past comments - there's a lot of good thoughts, mvs, and gifs to get you through! <3

 

Oh - and looks like the Japanese DVD is coming out 01/16/2019. I wonder why the DVD has been so slow to come out?

Guys, do you know who is Ma wang’s son?

 

Do you mean which character or the actor?

 

Spoiler

Ma Wang's son is the boy from the peddler woman's shop. The actor is Jung Jae-won aka ONE.

 

On a side note, I noticed Hwayugi is finally on Netflix again. Finally!

Hello, "Hwayugi" fans: I'm hoping a Korean speaker who watched this show can help me out with a question.  I recently watched the show, and I'm tempted to write a fanfiction story involving Lee Han-Joo's future with Hanbit Real Estate, and the future of the Winter General.  But as an English-speaker with very little knowledge of Korean, I'm having a difficult time figuring out what the names of the characters described in the subtitles/English-language discussions as "Winter General" (or General Winter, General Frost, etc.) and "Summer Fairy" are in the actual Korean used in the show.  I have seen "Winter General" called "Dong Janggun" (Eastern General?); is that what he's actually referred to as in the show?  And I've seen Summer Fairy rendered as "Fairy Ha," but I've had a difficult time figuring out what this name might actually mean, since "Ha," as far as I can learn, doesn't seem to mean "Summer."  And what is "Fairy" in Korean?  At any rate--if someone can help me out with this, it will be deeply appreciated.  Many thanks!

And this. Is that black eye? It looks like someone already kicked her up. Maybe secretary M did it.

Does any one know the brand of the glasses?

Up to episode 17 now and I hope this has a happy ending. I'm liking the drama very much and this is the first drama with Oh Yeon-seo that I've watched and she has captivating eyes and dimples and quite pretty as well. Lee Se-young is also quite versatile, from the sweet and shy Richie to the evil and calculating Ah Sanyeo. Lee Seung-gi is always good and I noticed he is usually paired with a gorgeous lady.

Just finished the drama and the ending was not actually as bad as I thought it would be because of Seon-mi's death. I like the open-ended ending and even thought I doubt there will be a part 2, as least the drama ended on a positive note.

One thing I liked was when Son Oh-gong and the Demon King were discussing a "hotel for spirits" while overlooking the river were the black dragon was killed. Is this just coincidence or they were actually alluding to Hotel del Luna which was also written by the Hong sisters?

Hotel del Luna was written after Hwayugi so who knows?! That's a cool idea though. lol
