"Criticized Arthdal Chronicles, will the viewers change their minds? " 

 

tvN's Arthdal Chronicles is strange. This is because the earliest period of time, the Sango period, is the setting of the period. He brought up stories of pre-history and pre-history times that he didn't try in Korean dramas. It was full of myths and fantasies. There was plenty of room for imagination. The Arthdal Chronicles were intended to show the steps of entering civilization from the original city, the steps of advancing from tribe to country (through federation), and the steps of entering history

Spoiler


Viewers were intrigued by "Korea's First Fantasy of Ancient History." You must have wondered what worldview was based on and how close and solid the fangs were, and how fascinating and convincing the characters would be. They must have wondered how much trouble they had with CG, etc. on screen, and how much immersion the actors would bring. It is a masterpiece that cost 54 billion won (54 million U.S. dollars) to produce. It was natural that expectations for the completion of the work were high. However, many said they were somewhat disappointed when they opened the lid.  

 

The Arthdal Chronicles' features a festival of heroes in Arthdal , the center of the ancient land of Asgardal. Arthdal consists of a large group of people with a large population and strong military power, a group of white mountain people in charge of propaganda offers, and a group of people with the technical skills of handling fire and manufacturing bronze. They are called 'people.' Eraha (the tribal chief), Sanung (Kim Eui-sung), Asaron (Lee Do-kyung) of the white mountain people, and Mi-ho (Jo Seong-ha) of the navy continue to have delicate conflicts in pursuit of the scent of power. 

 

There were other non-human races in Asse: "brain anarchal" and "Iarch," which was invented as the motif of the ``neanderthal"), and "Iarc." The brain-wasting aphrodisiac was a species with physical capabilities that were incomparably powerful than humans. The Asdal League proposes to build a nation for brain anaesthesia, which it rejects with a single knife. Then the Arthdal League spread an infectious disease that only responds to cerebral apoplexy, leaving them extinct. This is a glimpse of human cruelty.

 

Iarch is a race south of Asdal, below the Great Wall. Asadal people call the Iarchs a 'doormer.' It means animals that walk on two feet, or uncivilized people. Meanwhile, Eun-seom (Song Joong-ki), who is of mixed descent, is born between Asahon (Chu Jia-hyun) and Laggaz (Yu Tai-o), a person, and Eun-seom is raised in the hands of the Wahan people of Iarc. Like cerebral apoplexy, the Wahans make up their dreams and live a hunting life. But peace is shattered as the great army of the New Year'sites comes in, and the whole tribe is taken to Asdal.


This view of the world of Arthdal Chronicles is not bad (but not terribly interesting). The plot (as you know-how). The problem is that the view of the world is so new that it comes too strange for viewers. The terms in the drama were coined by the production team, so we need time to stick to our mouths. In the case of HBO <Game of Thrones>, if the original story makes it much easier for viewers to adjust to the view of the world, Arthdal Chronicles should go through the process while watching the drama.

 

 

In fact, the real problem is not the "worldview" or "whether or not the original work exists." There is no other choice but to argue about the creation. In the beginning of the drama, it was quite tacky to describe the worldview. The worldview should be exposed in the background so that viewers can accept it naturally, not unilaterally listing it as an infusion-style education. Perhaps a considerable number of viewers were dissatisfied with one or two hard-core worldview lectures. 

 

Of course, even if the worldview is a bit sloppy and the delivery method is not sophisticated, the drama can succeed if the character is attractive in the end. After all, it is the character that leads the story. But the main characters in The Asdal Chronicles somehow give the impression that they are superficial. Rather than feeling like a character in a drama, it comes in a foreign way. This is the result of neglecting to describe a person in the early stages due to his focus on explaining the worldview. The exit of Asahon and Lagaz took place too quickly, and the roles of child actors were too few.

 

Another reason why a character's charm has been halved is its "smoke power." Jang Dong-gun, who plays Tagon, the son of a bird's-Araha mountain hero and a hero of Asdal, looks a bit awkward as if he is wearing an incorrect suit, while Song Joong-ki, who plays Eun-som, is consistent with his look and acting that reminds him of the movie The Wolf Boy. The acting patterns of Kim Ji-won, who plays Tanya, the successor of Wahan's clan mother, and Kim Ok-bin, who plays Taealha, the master of the "Araha Mihol" of the navy, were also half-hearted, as they were widely expected.

 

In addition, it is regrettable that there was no central axis to lead the flow of the play in the beginning, as well as the poor delivery of the lines (which is a matter of sound, acting, or everyone's problem). For JTBC <SKY Castle>, didn't Kim Jung-nan, who appeared in the first episode, draw viewers' attention with a clear sense of presence? In comparison, Chu's performance was quite difficult. It was consistent with awkward emotions and hard-talking, which rather hindered viewers' immersion.

 

The Arthal Chronicles, which have revealed its problems in its creation, are under tremendous criticism. Kim Won-seok, producer of tvN's <Misaeng>, <Signal>, <My Mister>, <The Rooted Tree>, <The Breeding Tree> and <The Dragon>, <Narsha>, Jang Dong-gun, Song Joong-ki, Kim Ji-won, and Kim Ok-bin, who have completed their all-time cast. Moreover, it cost a whopping 54 billion won to produce. It was a stark comparison to "Mr. Sunshine," which cost 43 billion won right away. 

 

However, the ratings are not bad. The Arthdal Chronicles, which started at 6.729% in the first inning, left room for a rise of 7.31% in the second, 6.435% in the third and 7.705% in the fourth. The Asdal Chronicles is expected to mark another turning point in the fifth episode, when the story between characters such as Tagon, who revealed his desire to save the Wahans by kidnapping him, Tanya, who realized his identity and ability, and Taealha, who struggles between his father, Mihol, and Tagon. 

 

The Arthdal Chronicles is a laudable new attempt, but the clumsyness of the making is a point to be criticized. It is even more regrettable in that the production cost of 54 billion won and pre-production conditions have resulted in such results. It is also a concern of the Arthdal Chronicles that viewers are not happy about the fact that there have been allegations of staff abuse. Will Arthdal Chronicles ever make a comeback? Whether viewers will be able to change their minds depends on the remaining episodes of the show.

You can make the argument against staff abuse for literally every Korean drama its not right but it does feel like this show was targeted from the start with the dumb GOT comparisons which lead to the show being ripped apart during the first two episodes in Korea. 

 

It already made a comeback for hitting a new peak in episode 4.

Wow...that was a smart plan to trap SN, and Eunseom looked 

so powerful on the screen.

When he reached the group, he only shot at Yangcha, and that way

he could ride away safely.

I kinda like his innocence, and how everyone  already sees him as a warrior.

Wait, does South Koreans even watch GOT? I know the comparisons I've read are mostly from international fans, but I'm not sure about SK. Can someone please clarify it? Thanks.

I would like for there to be some love scenes between 

Eunseom and Tanya. :wub:

But, I dont know if it will be so.

Tagon and Taeha said hello like war friends, not like lovers.

Feels more like Final Fantasy or RPG type story more than GOT.

 

If Doti? The little girl Eunsum saved doesn't die, I wonder if Blackpink Jisoo could play her after a timejump.

Who would love to have a blue blood of the Neanthal race or the purple from the mixed of the Saram and Neanthal which becomes an Igutu? I mostly like being an Igutu like Eunsum because I don't need to put on a lipstick since it will always be pinkish. :lol::lol::lol:

 

***Game of Thrones is very different from Arthdal Chronicles for my opinion. No point of comparison. 

 

These  two cute young Igutu and Wahan are taking my breath away. They are so cute and fresh. 

(ctto)

There is also a factor of genre preference. I think it's more on the genre why this did not meet expectations on the ratings. People expected this to be at par with Mr Sunshine and Goblin. 

 

 I agree with you.  I've watched the first few episodes and was drawn in immediately.  The writing, so far is top notched and the cinematography is fantastic.  The drama looks and feels as if much time and effort was put into the production.  The fact that this drama is being featured on Netflix will draw a large audience.

Some people say that Arthdal flop so they need to put K-idols for the drama to get high rating and to be popular. 3 out of 4 are hallyu stars, and they think it's not enough for popularity? 

 

Lol!!!  Bashers and haters are again flying their wings in giving bad reviews, comments, and making out of the world stories. 

 

What can I say,  I don't give a damn since viewers have their own cup of tea. But for me this AC is a brilliant masterpiece of the writer. Kudos to the smooth flowing of the story. Viewers will appreciate it and will soar high. Let us just wait. We are not even in the quarter of the drama. Let us all be patient. 

 

And for putting idols, I don't think the reason is about the ratings but it is just really needed in the script bc I dnt think those two is so hugely popular and will pull a higher ratings tho, tssskkk. But the idea of including Jisoo is I really like bc I love Jisoo among the BPgals. 

 

So again, who wants to be an Igutu who'll not put a lifetime lipstick bc the lips is always pinkish? Butttt you cannot donate blood to Red Cross bc they don't accept Pink blood. LOL!!! :tounge_xd:

 

Cheer up Arthdal Fans!!!

As far as I know it is preproduced . They  just decided to announce it now. 

 

 

"The dispute was further aggravated because the drama promoted itself as the Korean version of “Game of Thrones,” but local fans argued that “Arthdal Chronicles” outright plagiarized the original".

I hope it´s not true that they really promoted themselves like that, that´s like digging your own grave.

i seriously don't get all the hullaboos.... even if its a GOT attempt...who cares...??? it is not like that they have completely plagiarised GOT... it can be called GOT inspired... Highly distubing and irritated... all the stories in these world have been told before and the success depends on the way of telling the story.... commenters are on another level altogether... agreed they may have taken few concepts of words , but this is no where GOT...!!! please....

I have a feeling that casting Song Joong-Ki as The One is perhaps to allude that Tree With Deep Root's King Sejong is a descendant of Eun-Som. I'm expecting Han Suk-Gyu to cameo as older Eun-Som.

I feel it too, like an RPG. And really, any of you who have been dabbling in RPGs will know that even GOT "borrows" a lot from (older) RPG lexicon. I guess this is why I am not bothered at all by the "unconventional" way the story play out: some are summarised and abridged, some are told in detail. I also think that there's an intended confusion as we try to learn and navigate through that world's folktales, fairytales, legends, and recent events, just as the characters do.

 

I do feel the "uneveness" of expositions, which are typical and sadly becoming a plague in saeguk, but here, I found them more tolerable (and hurray for inner monologues! ). So far, I am liking this for the very reason that this doesn't feel like the usual korean dramas. The director, especially, and writers aren't known for that typical k-drama/saeguk.

"arthdal chronicles was pre-produced for about 9 months from september last year to last month, but we haven't finished all the filming. this is why we postponed the part 3 broadcast to the second half" he hinted.

Hi guys! Been lurking here for a while and can’t help to comment!

 

I honestly worried of how this drama will goes but so far the storyline is good, the characters building also strong, some people said it’s too much but I think it’s just depends on the drama scale. This one aim to have 3 seasons, ofc it can’t only have simple characters especially with this pre-historic background.

 

The ones that blew my mind and made me seal the deal was Tagon and Tealha. When Tagon celebrated his last Neanthal hunt, he looks so much like I imagined his character to be. Tealha first scene was so damn sexy and beautiful. Her way of talking pretty much saying how manipulative she can be and I dig it so much! ES was innocent as I picture it to be. Nothing much now but can’t wait to see what is that innocent will turn to be. I feel Tanya was quite weak on eps 1 and 2, the ‘can’t dance, can’t dream’ thingy felt so short. But she slowly build up her story and during the curse scene you can feel the intensity that she’s about to bring.

 

The mysteries in my head:

- where is the two neathals saved by Asahon and Ragaz (I think it’s Rottip and idk)

- who is ES brother and why Tagon keep him

- what is Arthdal history, we know Aramun is their hero, he’s prolly an igut, ES and Tanya are his representatives. But I wanna know more. Who is Great White Wolf, etc.

- who is Yangcha and why does Tagon punished him to not talk

 

Can’t wait for the weekend to come soon!

I have read several posts about what the critics and detractors think or have written about Arthdal Chronicles and frankly, I do not care.  If a drama catches my attention, then I watch it.  It does not matter if the actors are "famous" or unknown, if they act well and make me invested in the character they are playing, I will stick with the drama.  If the drama changes direction and the becomes unbelievable, then I will stopping watching it.  Arthdal Chronicles is a fantasy and; therefore, the norms can be stretched and bent.  I can see some inconsistencies, if the story was following history as we know it; however, since it is not following history, but an era as a backdrop; then I do not have any problems.  Fantasy genres are about, suspending what is logical and real and using our imagination to believe the other worldly.  Therefore, I have a few sincere words for the detractors and critics... don't watch.  I am sure there are other dramas that are airing that will appeal to you.  

 

It is my hope that we limit our comments about what others think and use this space to analyze, surmise, and summarize our thoughts and opinions about Arthdal Chronicles.  I always enjoy, whether I am in agreement or not, everyone's insights, analyses, gifs, and banter.  You are what makes me come to this post back again and again.
