[Drama 2018] 100 Days My Prince / Hundred Days' Husband, 백일의 낭군님

Maybe the adoptive father lost his daughter in the household where Hong Shim and her brother were living - maybe she was working there, maybe even he was working there. It would be a weird coincidence if the daughter died in the same night in which the father of Hong Shim and Moo Yeon was murdered.

It feels nice to be back on this forum.. haha.. this show pulled me back in. I am completely hooked and little too late to join I suppose! I am hoping for a miracle to catch up with all the discussion here as I can see some wonderful insights already.. I wouldn't expect anything less!!

Welcome back to the forum @valleryrose! There is no such thing as too late. We're only about halfway through the drama anyway, and this thread is rife with all sorts of speculations, pretty much about all of the characters. Plus, you're coming onboard just when the OTP are finally falling for each other.  So, what do you think so far?

 

I'm actually kind of happy that this is a completely fictional work, so that I can cheer on the OTP without worrying about actual history, and hope that all of the characters are able to resolve things so that they can get happy endings. Well, aside from the Queen and Kim Cha Eon, for whom, unhappy endings would be fine by me. :)

 

Now, if only the drama could decide whether it's a comedy, a melodrama, or what...

@stroppyse I think we can all agree that it's a romance. :sweatingbullets:

My interest is really picking up to the point I actually watch the palace scenes now. I get as frustrated like the powerless king. And a good point made by many in this forum is that who can be the ones to help put evil minister out of power? Short of an assassination...

OMO.... :anguished:

 

now that I have watched it with english.... I am again wavered by the fact that orabeoni is indeed Crown Princess baby daddy... and she is actually just a pawn for her ambitious father.. poor kids.. they are all  have to experience such a terrible life because of all the greed and power struggles...  that vice PM is the most scariest character ever...

Thank you @stroppyse!!

 

Yeah the OTP is finally falling for each other but I'm also a bit skeptical because happy endings and historical drama don't go hand in hand.  I am generally wary of sageuks and stay away from them.. but this drama had an upbeat feel about it. So I decided to go with it.. that and of course the leads!! Given it's set in a fictional universe is also reassuring.. 

 

But the opening sequence, a possible death of Hong shim's brother and the impending separation of the couple leave me wondering if this show is really just a rom com. And don't forget the crown princess's pregnancy. 

 

Going by the previews won deuk is going to be captured soon and I am sure Hong shim is going to follow him to the palace.. the show is only getting started. I can't wait for Hong shim and Won Deuk to kick some butt specially the Vice Premier's!

(I only pity the Crown Princess.. having to realise what she means to her father at such a young age and how politics  and power trump everything. And then ending up with a loveless marriage. Not that it excuses any of her deeds.)

 

I have not dwelled too deep into the story line and I'm just enjoying the OTP and the beautiful cinematography of the show. All actors are really good so no complaints there.

 

This show is not supposed to be a melodrama and I hope it stays that way! Or did I miss anything the showmakers had previously communicated? I need a happy ending for my OTP!! :tears:

The queen who has been famous for not doing what she has been told to do will definitely not leave the pregnancy alone. I'm hopeful that she'll discover the secret.

 

At this point the vice premier is untouchable and he has managed to send JJY away too..

 

Makes me wonder if it'll take LY himself to bring him down and why not? Isn't that how it's meant to be?

 

And he real Won Deuk part is really confusing.. and the family register thing also. Was it entered when their marriage was registered. Or there is actually someone named Na Won Deuk and he passed away.

 

Won Deuk must have been a name Hong Shim knew from before.. or did she just make it up? How did she know that old lady? Hopefully we'll get some answers in the next episode..

I think there was really someone named Na Won Deuk and he was 35 (born in the year of the monkey).  All these are just little facts that don't add up which is why LY (and everyone else) starts to suspect he isn't Won Deuk.

 

Then there's that book that Won Deuk bought with the money he earnt?  He hid the book amongst the firewood (which HS finds and starts to read it and wonders why he would spend the money on it) but after the house was trashed it disappears?  It's not the family ledger.  Words on it read "Night Open Door" (literal translation - I think ?? because the words are a bit blurred out and they only showed the title of the book for a second or two at most)...I am not sure if it's some traditional Chinese learning manual or something else...I cannot find an equivalent on Google.  Maybe it's another memory trigger for him?  Why would someone take that book though?  Neither HS nor WD took it from amongst the firewood pile so who did?

But he bought the book with money though? That's kinda strange to have that sort of book for sale?  That's the impression I got anyway.  Don't know for sure. It's just odd that he couldn't find it after the house was trashed?  HS hid the book back where she found it and was then taken by thugs?  I am getting a bit muddled up coz I am watching too many dramas at once :lol:

@stroppyse I still can't really put my finger on what this drama wants to be. I think it's still divided in two parts, the palace intrigue plot (melodrama, fusion political sageuk) and the village plot (comedy, romance). This way the writer certainly can attract many viewers because the drama offers something for everyone. :lol:

 

 

On another note:

Spoiler

 

Why was everyone talking about Moo Yeon dying. Heck I was reading those comments and was so worried. I mean yes he has been shot but we didn't see him dying. Another weird cut by the editor but oh well. But can we talk about dying when he is actually dead? :) (Granted I know that when a character prior to such scene plans to do something like Moo Yeon, leaving with Hong Shim etc., a death is possible but I also think his arc isn't over.)

 

But the meeting was definitely a bittersweet moment between him and the Crown Princess. I thought, even though the acting wasn't on par on her part, that I like the idea of her wanting to be just a normal woman, living outside and far away from her father's power games. Just to imagine she was most likely groomed from the beginning to be put in the palace by her father, a mere chess piece. So I feel like that maybe Moo Yeon and the Crown Princess really formed a bond and maybe even more beyond it. They're both broken people who are put under the power of Kim Chae Eon.

 

I'm still a bit unsure about whether Moo Yeon is the possible father of the baby because while yes there might've been something going on between him and the Crown Princess, the way he congratulated her on the pregnancy was weird. Why would he not be open about it now? They're outside, apparently walking away from the house. Yes, there are spies everywhere but still. But I will keep my mind open about it. So let's see where this goes.

 

 

Also the plot thickens with Mr Dimples. So is he trying to outsmart Kim Cha Eon and does Kim Cha Eon without knowing lead him to the Crown Prince? Everything hints to Kim Cha Eon knowing that Moo Yeon didn't do his job (also see the hopefully only attempt to kill him) and he wants to have Mr Dimples to take care of it to prove his loyality.

 

Everything is coming together. And I just love that finally Hong Shim and Won Deok, or should we call him Lee Yul again, will have a clean cut. The truth is out, now they need to figure out eachother's true identities. :) Episode 8 really started to move everything together. It's still not smooth but it's okay enough to follow what's going on.

 

Also, welcome back, @valleryrose! :)As for this drama: it's a fusion sageuk, so we can hope for a happy ending. :D

True. It is definitely a romance. It's just the rest of it...

 

And, the palace scenes are definitely picking up. The palace politics is definitely the weightier part of the plotting with its various factions, betrayals, etc., though I do think LY needed to experience common life in order to become a better king. He especially needed to see the results of one of his tantrum edicts have resulted in, an outcome which affected just the peasants since the nobles' families by virtue of having money and power still blithely did as they will, edict or no edict.

 

Actually, an assassination wouldn't be as satisfying as seeing KCE reduced to a slave. :)

 

@Jillia

Spoiler

Yes, keep an open mind, but I can understand MY being discreet. They were alone, but they were outside. Plus, MY would understand that he won't be able to ever claim the baby as his since that would mean endangering both the Crown Princess and the baby. Infidelity by women is always treated more harshly, but as the Crown Princess, it would be catastrophic for her.

 

And, I also hope that MY isn't dead. As you've said, we've seen him shot, but we haven't actually seen him die. I'm more likely to think that MY isn't dead rather than LY's mother not being dead even though her death was off screen and so we didn't see her body either.

 

Anyway, we'll see. :)

To be fair, I'm feeling muddled as well because I'm also watching far too many dramas at the same time!  :blink:  I'm actually thinking of dropping one or two but not, of course, 100 Days Prince.

 

A book like that might be sold if the person who was keeping the records wanted money but didn't want to get caught with the book and was willing for someone else to take a risk with it.

I think episode 8 did a good job to show what the palace and especially Kim Cha Eon believe the King needs and what Lee Yul learns what the King needs. Kim Cha Eon did say the King needs his people's support. But who does he mean by it? Does he really include the people outside the palace? The people who can't read or write? The people who, as Hong Shim mentioned in two episodes or so ealier, are not real human beings compared to nobleman? He believes as long as he has power inside the palace and the magistrates under his control everything is alright. But the King belongs to his people, to the normal people, and it's his task to rule the country so everyone can live a happy life, even if it's hard work as well.

 

I think this is what Lee Yul is witnessing in the village. If you help people you will get back something, you will have their support. If you're kind and selfless you will meet kindness and selflessness. Even when he gets his memories back, he will also have this memory and it will change the way he is seeing himself as the Crown Prince and future King. He didn't want to be the Crown Prince but in the end he will become the best King. :)

 

And with a strong and loving Queen by his side, aka Yi Seo, it will be a happy life for him.

 

@stroppyse

I will definitely keep an open mind. Moo Yeon in the end had the best chance, so to speak, to be the baby's father since he was always close to Kim Cha Eon and his daughter. I'm curious how this arc will end. :)

“Night Open Door” (Edit: The book cover reads more like "Close關" more than "Open 開" to me?!) is actually a parody of a R-rated korean film,  Door to the Night, where the Korean movie tiltle can literally be translated as "Night Close Door: the Flower of Desire".  I reckon it is only to 1) show WD hid the ledger in a soft porn novel to avoid suspicion in case anyone saw the book; 2) serve as a joke, like the 50 Shades of Grey one.

The title of the book "Night Open Door" is the chinese words representing a medicine which gives men more energy for the night......(from Google) 

Or just like @000231846597 said, it is related to that korean movie.

Anyway, i guess the writer may try to use this title to mislead us that the book is something similar to "the fifty shades of grey".

Yes, the content of book is actually the ledger that detailed the wrongdoings of the local magistrate.

 

I guess the story is like this:

 

The book was somehow accidentally brought to the bookstore. But the owner doesn't understand the content of the book so he just sells the book just like other normal novels. WD bought that and then hided it under the firewood.

 

HS found it and she could read it and knew that it is a ledger. (<- this becomes a clue of her noble identity for WD)

 

After the house was trashed, HS got up early that morning to find her father, and she noticed that the man in the room was holding a metal bar. The metal bar should be something that reveals the identity of the man. Then HS guessed that he comes to investigate the misbehavior of the magistrate. Then, she went back home and took the book from the firewood, and gave the book to the man. (Later he told WD that HS gave the book to him early that morning)

 

After that, WD woke up and went back home to get the book but he couldn't find it. It's because HS has taken away already.

Okay, I just wanna gush over ep 7-8 for a while, :lol: 

i love this drama a lot, my most fave on mon-tue. I like D.O. more because of his acting and his charismatic vocal does full justice to his LY/WD character. While watching the background music this drama used reminds me of TMTETS. And LY/WD reminds me of Lee-Hwon, the male character in there. It makes me think why do they keep naming their king with the surname Lee, the Lees must be destined to be king. LOL

 

I enjoy the drama with lots of fun until the recent eps, and I hope they'll do till the end. The OTP is so cute!! Their chemistry is out of the chart, over flowing prettily. i love how the amnesiac LT slowly and deeply fall for HS and HS tried her best to avoid him, pull and push love relationship, typical kdrama trope that I love. 

 

I like the humor the drama presents, and also their varied foods, from the peculiar menu of earthworm soup to the humanly decent foods. I begin to crave for some Gukbap, meat pancakes and rainbow cakes. Where can I get the recipe? :lol: It looks so tasty!

 

talking about the conflict, even I love the romance and the other side stories of the villagers, I am totally bored with the incompetence king and the constantly bossy prime-minister. I hate that actually he is the one who rule the palace, the king is just a puppet he played as he wishes. So, I skip many scenes of how those stupid ministers argued. Pft. 

 

I can't wait to see how WD will return as LY, will he regain his memory or still with his amnesia going back to be as the CP. I remember had seen a scene of LY and HS are sitting face to face smiling in the palace. so I assume that HS will go with him later. i don't like if she goes with her brother, only to live in remotely areas, away from familiar friends or people, being isolated like a sinner, that is not a happy life, HS deserve to live happily.  And as MY, hmm... it makes me even convinced, I feel that he is the C. princess's baby's daddy. Well, hope he isn't. all the murders he committed for the evil minister makes a sign of sad ending for him, who shot him? probably, the prime minister minion, ;) Whatever the reason, I think MY should have started thinking to have better plan to get away from his wraith long ago. 

 

And that inspector or what he is, JJY, I'm not really sure. I expect to see him doing his job right this time. I feel that he must have something behind his sleeves when he said he want to serve the evil minister. Maybe he could help LY since he was the one who in charge in that villages now. Anyway, I have to stop here, it's very long already. Sorry for the long post.

Yes I can confirm the theory about "Night Open Door" is correct (thanks to all who contributed above)- I just went and rewatched that scene where the Royal Inspector comes to save HS/WD and exposes the local magistrate's deeds and the book he was holding was indeed that one (same title)... :lol: love the parody though...

 

As an aside...my Google search of that book in Chinese tossed this one up instead...PG13 or G rating...potentially because there's a browser filter on mine to screen out unsavouries from curious children :lol:
