That's an interesting theory and it makes sense tbh. And yes, if it was him, he wants his revenge knowing that Kim Cha-eon and the King both killed his entire family, he would want to ruin their lives by killing Lee Yool and making the Crown Princess pregnant.

This is pretty twisted but plausible. He must have a singleness of mind to actually serve the man that slaughtered his family and birth a descendant from them. His goal must firmly govern his life because how in the world does he keep his hatred of them in check.

 

Looks like JJY will continue to investigate the nurse’s case despite the order from the crown prince to drop it so I wonder if he will become a target by official Cha and the crown princess.

gotta say i hope the assassin aint the brother. im already not happy about how much violence and bloodshed filled the first two episodes in what the trailers sold as a sweet romcom. if her brother is so consumed with hate he would work as hired killer for the guy who actually killed his own father and sleep with the murderers daughter as part of a revenge plan that makes this drama REALLY dark and twisted with way more angst anger and misery to come not light and sweet at all. got no probs with the assassin being the baby daddy, i assume he is,  just hope he aint the missing bro.

It's not just in what has already been seen as the story sets it's foundation but even more in the knowing of what is to come.  I love that as children she took care of him and as adults he will protect and care for her. 

Even though their past is also filled with haunting memories of darkness.  There is one memory that stands out and shines brightly filled with moonlight and cherry blossoms falling all around them and the beauty of when their hearts were first moved and love was first felt...

 

I look forward to the next 100 days when Yul isn't a prince but just a common man living a common life.  It's like being able to breathe in freedom for the first time and leaving all the guilt from what his father did and he saw.  Leaving the stress and conflict of palace life and being someones target for a brief moment.  Most of all loneliness in being married to a woman you don't even love who is expecting a baby that isn't even yours...

 

Still it's these next episodes that I believe will be among the sweetest whether he does or doesn't know who he is won't change the fact that he will be free to love and be loved for himself not as a prince but as a man.

  With the only girl/woman whom never left his heart and who he once vowed as a boy he would marry.

 

Their shared past may make this relationship seemed doomed or like a cruel fate and yet it is their child like faith in love that was planted long ago that makes it feel like a fairy tale.

About to bloom...

Wow!!! Deabak! Just Daebak! 

 

I wasn’t sure about D.O.’s acting skills but he is perfect for this role. Not for a moment that I got bored or annoyed!! Just perfect :)

 

And Nam Ji Hyun, whenever I saw her, I smiled a lot. This drama will be my obsession from now on. :-D

 Finished watching  2 episodes.  DOkyungsoo is good. Most of the dramas I've seen of him he plays  a psycho. and he does it impressively. And well,  I watch because  it's no a secret I'm a fan child actor Heo Jung Eun.. you can tell from page 1 of thread.  I keep saying, she will be future  Daesang   grand winner.  She played young Kim Taeri in Mr. Sunshine.  She's playing now the young  Nam Ji Hyun in this drama and  we'll see her next  as the young Kim Ji Won in Asadal Chronicles. 

 

Always good to see a future best actress.. not just best child actress.

 

I also like the the other child actorJung Ji Hoon... terrific acting.. Both of then lovely scenes with cherry blossom.

hello everyone , its been a while for me to comment on a forum but i couldn't help myself. i just sing in quickly to say i been reading everyone's comments and on regards to the queen's baby father,  am i the only one who thinks  it is the funny scholar , cant remember his name who was suppose to meet someone after the lesson and wanted to hurry up the class because he was meeting a friend whom he hadn't seen in a long time. I notice that in the character chart he has a line  connecting him to the queen , if i am not mistaken his name is kim soo jin, for me the body guard is definitely the brother , for me either he knows that the prime minister was behind his father's assassination and he's just waiting for the right time to strike ,working for him in order to know all the people behind the murder,or he has been mislead and he's not aware of the vice premier behind the murder after all he left before he came to deliver the striking blow.

this dramas only 15 episodes andd almost the whole of the first two were filled with murder trechery and blood. not the cute sweet romcom the trailers pitched for sure. hope we we dont end up with a drama thats 90percent sageuk savagery and 10percent otp cuute

 

Only 15 episodes? Not 16? Interesting.

 

I agree. I too expected a sweet rom-com but so far the romance involved children and the comedy aspect is forced by Hong Shim. Frankly, I’m underwhelmed by the actress’ comedic style and delivery. Her scenes are supposed to be the light-hearted ones to counterbalance the CP’s melodramatic scenes but I’m just watching her with unenthusiastic eyes. Maybe she’ll brighten up and hit her stride when the actor Kyungso shows up. Just like it takes two hands to clap, it probably takes two characters playing against each other to create slapstick and shenanigans.

 

It's only the first week so there's time enough yet for the rom-com to catch up with its hype. 

 

Anyway, here are my first impressions of the first episode.   

 

******************
 

I’m trying hard to find humor in the opening scene but it certainly looks inauspicious with the Crown Prince (or is he already the King by then?) holding out his hand for droplets of rain and then setting out on his horse to meet his death in battle. It appears that this scene is from the future, sometime after his 100 days spent with The Girl.

 

Two elements from this opening scene continue throughout the episode, like threads tying the past and the future.

 

One element is the rain. Before his impending amnesia and his 100 days, there’s drought in the kingdom. Rain hasn’t fallen in months hence his ministers’ call for sexual relationship with his Crown Princess whom he’s been avoiding. But in the opening scene, storm clouds are rolling in and soon enough, it rains in torrents.

 

To me, this suggests that he’s given in to the duties of his position (i.e., consummate his marriage with the Crown Princess OR if there’s a twist of fate here, consummate his illicit love affair with The Girl). His emotional long dry spell — or his metaphorical thirst for compassion — has ended.

 

On a side note, I find this ritualistic belief that rain could be summoned by some sort of human appeal to the rain spirits at odds with the Confucian education. As far as I understand it, there’s no deity and divine providence in Confucianism. A better life is attained not through divine supplication or prayer to the natural world but by following the moral precepts to live a righteous life.  CP memorizes all the wise sayings and ethical proverbs, but at the same time, he’s still expected to perform these “spiritual” unions with the CPrincess simply because the people expect him to be the messenger of the heavens.

 

The other element is the calling of a warrior.

 

The flashback gives us a preview of CP’s understanding of warriors. The young Yi Seo teaches him what a true warrior is. Back when they were children, she scolded him for whipping a servant. She said that a person who torments the powerless is a fool, not a warrior.

 

She also told him that sometimes a person must embrace fighting to protect the citizens even when the citizens don’t understand the warrior’s true intentions.

 

This fateful encounter with Yi Seo tempered his playful, warrior streak and he began his scholarship. Now that he’s the CP, he continues his bookish ways. According to his Eunuch, he does nothing but read at night and his nightly INACTIVITY (euphemism for “no sex life”) is regarded as the cause of his heart ailment.

 

Thus, in the opening scene when the CP rides in the rain to a battle where death awaits him, it strikes me that he’s a desperate man.

 

He’s fighting to protect someone he cherishes and is no longer willing to be on the sideline like a useless fool or a recalcitrant child.

 

Either way, the opening scene doesn’t bode well for my expectation of a light-hearted sageuk. lol.

 

Nevertheless, there are plenty of things to enjoy in this first episode.

 

Like that joke on the word “fool”. I thought that was witty. Did you see it?

 

In the flashback, we see the young Crown Prince, Won Duk, standing a log and proclaiming, “I may be young but I will stab and vanquish our enemies as a bold servant of Joseon and save our people! The battle is upon us. Follow me!”

 

Follow him??

 

All his “men” except his trusted friend are running in front of him, and HE’s chasing after them. He’s not being followed. lol.

Then, to add injury to this insult, The Girl, Yi Seo, bops him on the head with a wooden stick to stop him from hitting a servant. She shows him who’s the boss there.

 

Meanwhile, back home, his father is being presented a piece of stone with the word, “useless” etched on it. The stone giver (the future bad guy, Left State Minister, and Won Duk’s father-in-law) interprets the word on the “sacred stone” as a sign from the heaven to depose the present king (i.e., the “useless” one) and install the King’s brother (aka Won Duk’s father) as the new king.

 

This interpretation is interesting because with the success of the coup, the new king becomes in reality a useless one himself. He’s merely a TOOL manipulated by the Left State Minister who runs the affairs of the country. His father becomes a figurehead of power.

 

But the more interesting thing about this piece of stone is that the evil Left State Minister’s "supposed" rationale for deposing the real king is to protect Won Duk.

 

He warns Won Duk’s father, “A person who is afraid of a tiger will not let the son of a tiger live.” He insinuates that Won Duk, as the son of a tiger, is going to be harmed so his father should wrest the power from the King, his brother, in order to ensure Won Duk’s safety.

 

See that? I never saw that coming: Parental love as the reason for a rebellion. lol.

 

This explain why the King has shown Won Duk exceeding patience and restraint. He loves his son. For instance, even when he’s furious that Won Duk escaped the “happang” or bed ritual with the Crown Princess, he meets him in the secrecy of the Court Library and doesn’t physically restrain or punish him. He’s the King but he allows the Crown Prince to disrespect him.

 

Here's the whole dialogue. 

 

King: You brought shame to the name of the Royal Family just to read books like these? (meaning he didn’t do his duty and bed the Crown Princess to read a book on goblins?)
Crown Prince: You used to go on about how I should read before.
King: What? It’s been months since it last rained. I’m sure you know the concerns of the people who will soon need to start farming. But you, the CP, refuse to sleep with the CPrincess. So how do you expect the heavens to bestow rain upon us?
CP: The, are you saying that we are the ones to blame for the drought? (are WE taking responsibility for the failure?)
King: (sighs) Of course not. Everything is because of this wretched king’s fault, obviously. (He’s personally shouldering the blame.)
CP: Father.
King: Weren’t you trying to imply that it’s due to my shortcomings as a king? Don’t you want to insult this king just like all of the other citizens of this country do?
CP: I never wished for you to become king. Nor did I ever want to become the CP. So don’t try to force me into doing anything else.
King: Why you little brat. (I think the word “ingrate” is appropriate.)
CP: Is the one who is making you feel truly uneasy the citizens or the Left State Counselor?
King: (sighs) Do you hate the Crown Princess that much?
CP: She’s not the only one I hate. (and he walks out on the King.)

 

To me, the real “useless” person -- that was foretold by the stone -- is the CP.

 

On a superficial level, he’s useless because he doesn't do anything. 

 

But on a deeper level, he IS “cornerstore” of the kingdom (as his counselors often remind him) but he’s useless because he refuses to take serious actions in the court. Instead he indulges in childish games as an act of rebellion toward his father.

 

What has he done so far? He's like a spiteful kid --

 

Telling the court lady to kill all the birds (a silly task) because the birds made her smile. He hasn’t smiled in years so why should she?

 

Ordering the scholars to solve a riddle (another futile task) or they can’t leave the palace because he discovers one of them is leaving soon to rendezvous with a friend. He isn’t free to come and go as he pleases so why should the scholars?

 

Forcing all the single folks in the kingdom (and a foolish task, too) to marry because he himself was forced to enter in a loveless marriage.

 

To me, he acts like a kid having a temper tantrum. Since he himself can’t smile, enjoy a free day with a friend or be with the one he loves, NOBODY around him should be able to smile, enjoy a free day or be in love, too.

 

He’s in an unhappy, “uncomfortable” situation so he’s determined that everybody else should be miserable and “uncomfortable” like him.

 

See that? He doesn’t realize it yet, but he’s behaving just as the stone predicted: a useless fool.

 

And you know what's also funny? The stone with the word "useless" inscribed on it got discarded. It would be a funny twist of fate, if the CP were to be similarly discarded, too. 

 

Unless he shapes up. 

 

That’s why it’ll be cosmically funny to see The Girl knock some sense into him again. In their first encounter, he was a warrior wannabe who’s made into a fool. But in their second encounter,  I'm betting that he’ll be a fool transformed into a warrior because of his love for The Girl.

I went on a rollercoaster ride watching the first two episodes. I found the scenes when they were kids so cute and charming at first. Particularly when the young Lee Yool said that he would marry Yi Seo. The boy looked so serious, it was adorable! But then, Yi Seo' family got attacked, well, murdered and we all know what happened next. 

 

So far, I liked the flow of the story. D.O. and NJH are perfectly casted for their roles and I'm looking forward to seeing them get "married". Oh, I just want to mention how creepy that guy who wanted Yi Seo to be his 5th concubine is. I just find it laughable that he even thinks that he's doing her a favor and saving her from 100 strikes. 

 

I just have a question though. Is Yi Seo older than Lee Yool?

The girl who cast as younger Hong shim is the same as the girl that played as Go Ae Shin from Mr. Sunshine right?! 

when i saw her in this drama, i kind of thinking "am i having a bad eyesight or what.. why this girl is this small while in Mr sunshine she's kind of a little older". At that time i consider that Mr sunshine is pre-produced that finished long before 100 days my prince.

Anyway... I kind of wonder about the prince's friend who sacrificed himself as an exchange of Lee Yool's life. In the trailer, they found the prince body but already covered and the king chooses not to see his son's dead body. But what about the other? Didn't they make sure? or if they did, what about the face? Did they'll destroy the face that no one going to recognize or he'll purposely hit the rock on his face (ough.. cannot imagine this one)...

Finally caught up to the episodes and loved them both. The music is so hauntingly beautiful as is the aesthetics(one of the perks of a pre-produced show). Can't wait to see the story unfold and because I was curious about it, I went to the first page to read the character sketch and I have to say, they are just wild from start to finish. I was :blink: while reading them because I was trying hard to understand/guess the actual character sketch. Especially these one:

 

kimsun.png&key=6f669429bd4d53fd5c436dabe

Being a taxpayer certainly is a terrible conflict beginning problem as well as being a cloaked brain. I feel for you man.

 

queen-kim.png&key=8b864b91502d3ca44067f7

 

I am guessing from Mo Yeon's character sketch that he is HS's brother but what I am wondering is whether the villain Kim knows who MY is? The character sketch hints that he does and he promises to clear MY's father's name if he carries out a certain "mission". If the translation is correct, why would he hire a man whose family he mercilessly slaughtered? What makes him so confident that MY won't kill him? Is this also why MY doesn't meet HS on the bridge like promised because he is being tailed and kept an eye on by Kim?

 

I have to admit, Queen Park's hobby of cooking men seems very dangerous. :lol: LY better be careful of his cannibal step mother. :P

 

Edit: OK, rewatched the childhood scenes. MY never saw that Kim killed his father so he may have gone to him for help and swore revenge on the King for killing his family. Kim must have kept him close to keep an eye on him because keep your friends close but keep your enemies closer. MY probably fell for his daughter(or just she did and he is using her for revenge), the Crown Princess and slept with her when CP continued to ignore and hate her. He definitely knows the Princess is carrying his child and must feel a certain vindictive pleasure that his child will become the King in the future but for that to happen, the truth of the child being his should not come out. Hence the nurse was killed but CP was not hurt because they needed him to sleep with the Princess at least once to claim that the child is the true heir and conceived by the CP. All of this was unknown to Kim and that's why he was confused about the CP glaring at him in the "party". But now that CP has figured out everything, he has to die no matter what.

BTW, I found everyone praying for his death, really sad and can't wait for him to come back to ruin their plans.

i think that Hong Shim's brother is the assassin with the bow and arrow. I don't know why he would be doing that unless he is trying to exact his own revenge somehow, but he has already murdered innocents The plot twist of the crown princess is so i did not see it coming

I think so too. He's trying to get revenge but taking his time to see to it that it will happen when the right time comes. 

 

Finally, already seen the two episodes. It was both interesting and entertaining. I thought it was a romcom kind of Sageuk but majority of the scenes so far were serious and a little bit dark. There were funny scenes and probably more from what I've seen and noticed on the trailer. 

I wonder why the king wanted to kill HS's father? I guess the king trusts the Vice-Premiere so much but didn't know he is a traitor. I want the crown prince to take over his father's duties and responsibilities because he's more decisive, wiser and strong-willed than him. 

I like the crown prince's self-esteem, confident and self-assured but him having an amnesia makes me giddy because of being clumsy and innocent. Can't wait to see his sweetness and  cuteness as HS's disguise husband, it would be a good mess for sure.

Finally caught up with its first 2 episodes and it’s awesome! 

How many episodes this drama will be? 

I like Nam Jihyun’s character here because she is not just hopeless woman that needed to be saved every time. Definitely a strong character. 

I can’t wait for next episode. 

Btw, hi @YourHighness . :D we meet again here :D
