Do you mind telling me at which part it is? Where Tagon was asked?

Episode 1, 31:49

 

Tagon announces that he will lead the hunts now, as his father has asked him to. This declaration surprises the warriors but then the man from the White Mountain Tribe adds: "I hear your contribution was glorious in mopping up the Igutus in Arthdal. We would be honored".

So this means, when the hunt started, Tagon had a different task before he joined the Daekan forces and led them.

He "took care" of the Igutus indicating that Eunseom and his brothers were not the only ones. This would explain why Asa Hon was able to speak their language.

Overall, great first two episodes and I hope the pacing, editing, and writing stays consistent throughout the series even with netizen's complaints. 

Despite people constantly pitting this show as "budget-low-quality" GoT, I see this show having more resemblance to Chinese wuxia/xianxia dramas instead with the whole "prophesied one" plot line.
I remember being surprised that a Korean drama was going to delve into traditional fantasy with world-building, something never seen before. I hope this at least encourages other writers and directors to attempt more heavy fantasy genres as there's so much you can do with it.

Maybe this was  mistranslated or a error because if it was Neanthals instead would make more sense or maybe what you said is right.

 

Article: Naver 'Arthdal Chronicles' Song Joong Ki.Kim Ji Won who grew up... the chosen ones 


1. [+4067,-877]
Am I the only one who finds this interesting? It's a little unfamiliar, but it's fresh to see such a plot in a Korean drama.... Well, I guess we have to respect individual's preference too. 

2. [+1840,-360]
I'd rather you do 'Arsenal Chronicles'.


3. [+2037,-600]
It feels as if 50 billion was invested into the 'Sanaba's Morning' skit from Gag Concert, and made into a drama~ The way they talk is like the neighborhood fools gathering together... 


4. [+892,-131]
Looks like the story has begun officially. 


5. [+997,-248] 
Yes, 'Tirano's Claws' is next. 


6. [+678,-126]
You guys have so much to say, huh? It's not like they pay you to watch this. Why do you guys have so much to say? Will your disatisfactions go away after speaking ill of it? Just watch it. It's only the 2nd episode. They have to experiment with such dramas to make progess. How long more do you want them to do birth secrets, memory lost, those morning makjang dramas, 2nd generation chaebols, Cinderella stories, and childish romcoms? Would they challenge new stuff if they are scared of viewers? If you want to criticize this, go and watch 'Bride of Habaek', and you'll be calling this high quality. 


7. [+586,-94]
Why are the reactions so negative? I find this interesting... 


8. [+468,-58]
No, but today's episode is really good.  ㅋㅋㅋㅋ  I was so immersed in the second half of the episode. 


9. [+392,-18]
The horse is so good at acting...

Article: Naver 'Arthdal Chronicles' Kim Ji Won asks Song Joong Ki, "Were you planning to leave without a word?" 

1. [+884,-109]
I find this interesting.. The CG is a little awkward.. But there are parts where it's eye candy.. I'm tired of doctors, prosecutors, and romance between the rich and the poor stories.. I like this. 


2. [+987,-227]
This is interesting for me. Why are you guys making a fuss? 


3. [+703,-96]
When the horse that Eun Seom rode on flew in the air, I was moved. That scene was the coolest today. 


4. [+538,-83]
It's interesting, but each time I see Song Joong Ki, I get reminded of the werewolf boy and whenever I see Jang Dong Gun, I think of pirates. 


5. [+495,-115]
Today's episode is more interesting. I'm a first broadcast killer!!


6. [+177,-32]
I thought it was boring seeing so many people cursing at it. Today's episode is totally interesting. 


7. [+145,-26]
It's fun.. So much better than the first episode. I think it's going to get more interesting. 


8. [+129,-10]
The scene where he rode the horse was so cool.. I was so disappointed yesterday and thought I should drop this. But it's a good thing I watched it. I have to keep watching to know if it's good, but today's episode isn't bad. Yesterday's was too confusing. 


9. [+124,-8]
But I find this new and interesting? I think the story will expand more as it goes. Can't you guys think of this as a virtual thing and watch it? 


Some better comments so lets hope they improve over time.

Is there another Korean comments for episode 2? 

Actually, it would make no sense if it was an error in translation as in this scene, Tagon announces indirectly, he will be the head of Daekan forces: the military forces regrouping warriors from different tribes: Asan, White Mountain Tribe. If he had been tasked to get rid of the Neanthals, why would he announce it now and surprise them?

To me this makes more sense considering he came up with the idea which wiped out the Neanthals so why wouldnt he lead the hunt now? 

On the other hand, we shouldn't forget that the men knew what an igutu is... if there had been no other igutu babies before, how would they come up with this name? Remember that a name is tied to something. Furthermore, Tagon knew how to recognize an igutu quite immediately. That's why I have been thinking Asan Hon and Ragaz were not the first couple.

Yeah i deleted that comment what you said makes more sense i guess he was just involved with getting rid of Igutus as well. 

 

What do people think about the snake scene now that we know  Eun Seom is Aramun at least somewhat.. was the snake trying to lead Asa Hon to Tan Ya and was that the moment Eun Seom and Aramun became connected?

I believe, the snake represents the gods so that's the moment Eunseom became Aramun. Don't forget that he is definitely superior: he can memorize things very easily, he came up with interesting ideas, he is smart as well.

Tagon is such a perfect villain... Handsome, charming, cunning and charismatic... a great nemesis for Eunseom. And although I'm eager for their face off I would like it if for at least a short period of time they become allies against Tagon's father and other leaders.:rolleyes:

 

Btw I'm so curious about why Tagon decided to keep Eunseom's brother alive at such a great risk. I can't think of a good reason.

Its a powerful fighter he can use to become king i think this is the reason unless there is some other reason we find out later.

I doubt that Eunseom will be an ally for a short time because TY has been taken by Tagon's trupps. Tagon might have obeyed his father's orders but he was never opposed to his father's plan. Deep down, he was the one who had the idea how to eradicate the Neanthals. He has been helping his father for his own interest. He is not just the puppet of his father, quite far from it. In fact, he knows exactly what he wants. He is just buying time and has already created his own army (Daekon)

But the boy is a wild card. Right now he thinks of Tagon as his father but what if he finds out about the truth? And it's very likely considering Tagon wiping out Neanthals and Igutus is no secret. He could very well turn on Tagon and seek revenge. keeping the boy alive and using him as a weapon is too risky esp for a smart person like Tagon. But I agree that it seems to be the reason.

It's just a wishful thinking on my part :D

 

Btw, They've made it clear that Tagon is the villain but what about Taealha? Is she a villain too or not? Right now they are on the same side but I think it would be interesting if she has a different path ahead of her.

I don't think Tagon taking the Igutu infant (Eunsom's hyung) has to do with him wanting to pit Eunsom and his brother against each other. When Tagon took the infant, he had no idea that there was another Igutu baby.

 

Perhaps Tagon took the child in because he felt guilty about wiping out all other Igutus (If we believe he's not a one-dimensional villain)

 

Or Tagon knew that Igutu's have superior abilities due to their Neanthal blood and thus if he raised one to be absolutely loyal to him, then the child would be an invincible guard for him in the future.

 

And also perhaps there's more to the story that we don't know. There's likely some more Igutu mythology that exists in this world that we don't know about at all. 

 

I wonder if Aramun Haesulla in the legend, was an Igutu, and that's why Tagon took the infant, thinking that she could be of use to him in the future. We know that Neanthal-Saram hybrids existed in this world already prior to the story starting. That's why Tagon had to wipe them out (referenced by one of the Arthdal soldiers in Ep 1). So if the races were already mixing, why did they start to segregate? 

 

Interestingly, the first 2 eps demonstrate how 2 people of the same "fate/origin" can grow up so differently because of their surroundings. I think the prophecy about Tanya and Eunsom were essentially the same myth/prophecy. The Wahan people of Iark actually originated from Arth, since Tanya said that their originator, the Great mother White Wolf, was someone who crossed the cliff but did not go back. So it would make sense that Wahan and Arthdalians have the same mythology. This is even more hinted in the previews. We see parts of the Hwinsan tribe ritual dances (when they show scenes of people dressed in white performing a dance), the Hwinsan tribe ritual dance looks like the same dance that Tanya is trying to learn in ep2. 

 

Ultimately, the Wahan interpret the prophecy in a way that Tanya was believed to be an "anointed" one who will bring change (although we don't know if good or bad says Choseol), while those of Arth interpret that same prophecy in a different way in that Asa Hon believed Eunsom was to be the "cursed" one. 

 

Also, it seems like Tagon doesn't exactly love all the warring and killing.... When Taeallha goes to him in Ep 1 and tells him that his dad will be sending him to settle another war dispute, he seems like he's over it and wanted to go home.

The kids we have to assume are still alive and im not sure Eunsom has a twin but a brother.  Aramun Haesulla: God of Harmony and Unification  -

 

If you want more questions asked look at the last few pages might clear stuff up.

I think people need to stop giving excuses for Tagon he came up with the virus plan that wiped everyone out.. when kids were killed and burned alive he shows no emotion or care.

I agree with you. He never said anything to his trupps and Mubaek, how they should treat the people from Iark. He only shows empathy to his warriors but this is just a facade as he killed the two soldiers who accompanied him, when he discovered the igutu baby. Did he perform any ritual or show any remorse? No he didn't want to have any witness. In my opinion, Tagon is really clever because he knows how to manipulate the Daekan warriors. He makes sure that they worship him that's why he is very generous with them: alcohol, roasted pig... He acts as if he was humble as he doesn't want to be associated with Aramun Haesulla, yet due to the burial ritual and his action, he definitely wanted to be linked to Aramun Haesulla. 

Honestly, he reminds me of Hitler, the Führer.

That's quite true and his father more than sure knows he is a dangerous person and that's why he is constantly keeping him away from the Capital,he is afraid of him and that he will take his power and become the King,he knows the people adore him and would choose him as their leader and Tagon knows clealry his father fears him and would choose to get rid of him if he returns home,i think he knew it since he was young so he started making plans behind his back...I also doubt EunSeom would choose to fight alongside Tagon,not after everyting he did and if he finds out he was the one who killed his Father even more...Deep down as much as trey want to make him a nuanced antagonist he is truly a villian and he sure seems the type to do what it takes to get what he wants,and he seems the time who considers himself above Gods and the only fit to be the Destined King..

 

I'm more worried about his older brother,as he clearly likes Tagon and sees him as his "Father"...i don't want it to become reality but i sense tragedy in terms of their future relationship and his brother future,i sense he will end up dying...

 

Also about The Origin of Aramun,they mentioned it in episode 2 how his origin is connected in Iark,that Risan(the father) and Asa Sin(The mother) fled in those times and that the envoy with them and Aramun came to Iark,very much the same journey Asa Hon did this time around(with minor differences of course) and there he found his legendary horse..So basically the same legend repeats inself with some changes...So Aramun's Mother was also a woman Priestess(from the Asa Clan),maybe even Asa Hon's descendent who knows,so when they did settle in Iark,the language she spoke was passed down and the reason both tribes speak it...
