An exciting episode.

I like the way Yangcha looks at Tanya.

When Tanya took off the robe, it seemed to me, that 

Yangcha had sighed...:D

 

Poor Saya...nothing goes the way he planned.

Im not sure if he thinks Tanya is wearing his necklace.

It was a cruel and clever way to get Mubaek to tell him the truth.

The whole scene, when Mubaek and Saya  went in front of the procession, was so well done.

If they can’t make another season with the same cast, hope they can at least do manhwa/anime of it. But from the interview, seems like there will be another season. This is just an introduction. Wish they make this a 50+ episodes drama like other historical drama but I can understand why they want to break this into seasons. *costs*

Well, I am not disappointed by the ending, even if it looks right now like an open ending. We saw how Tagon and Eunseom could rise and now they are about to fight against each other. We know for sure that Eunseom will win because every prophecy has come true. Tagon will lose in the end, Arthdal has already been cursed by Tanya and Tagon is not aware of it. 

At the end, the viewer realizes that the union between Taealha, Tagon and Saya has been broken. Saya knows now about the existence of a twin brother... he is aware that Tagon is hiding something from him. Tagon plans to use Taealha's child to have his real heir... In other words, Tagon will never proclaim Saya his heir. Finally, Tagon and Taealha have already planned to betray each other, just like they promised each other in the past.  


the broken union between these three is cause by their doubt and wariness of each other. Isn’t this the same with Asa Ron, Mihol, Tagon, and his father? Everything will repeats. Those who are power hungry will never truly satisfy until the end of their life. 
 

Some might be disappoint by the ending but I love it. It shows the rise of both Tagon & Eunseom and sign of a war and the end (the real fun part).

 

Edit: I just rewatch the ending and it seems like Saya is leading the Saenyeok(? I don’t remember what they are called or spell) soldier. Does that mean Mirror, Saya, is the opposite of ES? He will go against the Sword instead of fighting with?

Could u post the link,or post made?

so is it legit that they will do a SEASON 2 in 2020? (if so,please let it be true,with the same cast otherwise it will be just as worse as this open unfinised ending they tossed at us)

I don’t know how to post an IG screen shot. Try to search in iG.

 

It is official. Studio dragon which is producing Arthdal Chronicleson tvN already signed a 3 season contract deal with Netflix. That means we will have total 54 episodes (18 episodes x 3 seasons = 54 episodes).

Arthdal Chronicles” Cast Thanks Viewers In Final Goodbyes As Drama Comes To An End

Sep 22, 2019
by L. Kim

The cast of “Arthdal Chronicles” shared their thoughts as the drama came to an end.

“Arthdal Chronicles” tells the story of heroes who write their own legends in the mythical land of Arth. The drama was composed of three parts, each of which contained six episodes. “Part 1: Children of Prophecy” and “Part 2: Turning Sky, Rising Ground” aired earlier this summer, and the final episode of “Part 3: Arth, The Prelude to All Legends” aired on September 22.

Jang Dong Gun, who showed off his excellent acting skills by portraying the charismatic Ta Gon, shared, “The character Ta Gon was very different from the roles I’ve taken so far, so there were many difficulties, but I did my best to work hard. It’s hard to believe that ‘Arthdal Chronicles’ is over. It was an honor to participate in a great work with good people, and I had a great time.”

For Song Joong Ki, who played both Saya and Eun Seom, it was his first time playing a double role in a drama. He commented, “Although there were some difficulties in playing a double role for the first time, it was fun. I was greedier than ever because the vast and deep story was so fascinating.” He then sincerely thanked the director, writers, and production crew for their hard work and also expressed his gratefulness to the viewers for watching the drama.

Kim Ji Won, who played Tanya, a shaman of the Wahan Tribe and a true descendant of the gods of Arth, said, “It feels surreal [that the drama has come to an end] when I remember the many hours that we spent filming with ups and downs for more than eight months. It was a great honor to work with great actors, writers, and director. Just as characters change as they learn over time, ‘Arthdal Chronicles’ was a drama that gave me new experiences and lessons. I want to thank the viewers for waiting so long and for being with us.”

Kim Ok Bin took on the role of Ta Gon’s lover Taealha. She shared, “I was very attached to all of the staff, including the director, writers, and actors. We worked hard together, so it feels both sad and bittersweet that I won’t be able to see them anymore. I really want to say thank you to the viewers for their support and love over a long period of time.”

I hope the cast will remain in SS2 and SS3. This is one of the best Kdramas I have watched. I can't wait to see the three reunite, ES reunites Momo tribe, ES reunites Kamorou, and the Neanthals reunites. I don't know if it is necessary but I want ES and Saya should learn how their parents were killed by Tagon. There are still many things needed to be resolved. Can't wait.

 

Out of nowhere, but I was watching VAGABOND and saw Ragazeu. so check it out guys

Seeing the recent events i could say that more than sure that now Saya will eventually be discarded by Tagon after knowing he will have a child of his own bloodline...No wonder he was also sent to the battlefield when he doesn't have any battle experience nor strenght,like Sanung did to him ironically,now would he take the same route as him that would have been intresting to see(even if more hard as the men are loyal to Tagon)....It could be very well the motivation for somehow turning against him and joining Eunseom and Tanya if he doesn't end up being killed in the war...(i'm also quite sure he and Eunseom would be switched but don't know if he would pretend to be him or reveal his identity if in hands of Ago Tribe or Momo Tribe etc),Quite sure that Tanya's father will discover the secret of using iron and using it and from the last episodes i quite dare to think Yangcha would realize all the things he did wrong and learn from Tanya and side with her and even at least preferred option die protecting her,betraying Tagon...I mean,if that wasn't the hint why bother now with their intresting dynamics...For me that would have been quite the character growth and intresting, this out of nowhere bound formed among this set of characters,also find it quite alluring their unique way of communicating also i really see it as them having a special kind of relationship as they show us that she can hear only his inner voice(or better said,more frequent or even all the time unlike with Saya that is still rare),can't be just random plot line...

 

Now, this just are my own speculations and i don't dare to dream of a an actual SECOND SEASON without seeing it confirmed with big letters of official sites(would it even still be on tvN?people say it was a confirmed info by Netflix and Dragon Studios but that it even mean it would air on the same network ,was like a 3 party contract,will be the same cast)

Did anyone watch the LIVE stream on tvN? Did they see the animation included on tvN?

I truly want to believe in this miracle and that they won't dissapoint us but we know that dramaland hardly have multi seasons with the same cast and they usually depend on their ratings(or what they expect to get of it and if less they discard it) and actors...we know how hard it is to make a main cast match their scheldules to get together for months and here we have, i say a large cast,not just main but many and i doubt the korean scene and companies are used to the way of the west (how USA does their season shows etc) making their actors scheldules around this projects and all of them can film without problems... I guessed my heart is by after 10 years of dramaland jaded by so may hopes that were usually almost always smashed by dissapointment when it came to this time of continuations that never seen the light of day(at least those shows had the dignity to have at least proper endings even when some were bad or not what u expected)...

So this was actually planned to have many seasons. Well, if K viewers doesn't like it that much, maybe they should consider international viewers and just make it as Netflix exclusive then. The only problem then is if the same cast will reprise their roles. So I agree with you @Miky88. I still have to see a Kdrama with a second season with completely the same cast. This is what I like about Jdramas because they are true to their stories and cast that they always have entirely same cast when they have second seasons or third.

Taelha was having her own private meeting,she wasn't with Saya...She was meeting with her own supporters,mostly her former tribe members...

It's not her tribe members, but Asa Sakan tribe members, and pledge allegiance to her. I wonder what she did offer to Asa Sakan.

The production crew also thanked the cast, crew, and viewers and asked the viewers to watch the the drama until the end.

 

These farewell speech from the casts really made me anxious. Knowing Korea with their drama that have seasons, they tend to change most of the main casts. Exceptional for Age of Youth and Queen of Mystery or maybe Voice series. And these series have a total new plot for the new season. They rarely made drama like Arthdal seasonal. Cause drama like Arthdal already established plotline and it need to follow what has establish. Maybe Kingdom is an exception too. But Kingdom is 100% Netflix produce. Arthdal is Netflix-TVN. Hopefully if TVN didn't pick this up, Netflix will pick this up. I'm really rambling here because I'm so anxious of the confirmation for Season 2. Pardon my words....

Wow, didn't know that the shield is same as the invaders that destroyed Hae Tribe's homeland...

 

Tanya is indeed riding Kanmoreu. Because she called the horse his name, "Helper" in the animated preview. The name she gave during 2nd episode.

I too hope there is a second season! I feel like there was no closure to this drama.  Eunseom was only a few steps closer to being the leader of the tribes and to making his own country.  I really wanted more.  I really needed the trio to meet and for the Neanthals to assist Eunseom. I want to see the fall of Tagon.  I feel like Tanya is no more than a puppet be because of Saya.  And if Tanya can hear thoughts, why didn't she hear Saya's thoughts about the Wahans?  And when the Wahans were huddled together, why was Taelha there? I have so many questions.  

 

So bring on Season 2 next year.  I really want closure!

I have a feeling Tanya cannot hear everyone's voices. She only hear those that are without voices. Therefore, I don't think she can hear Saya or Tagon and only can hear Yangcha.

She also heard Saya's voice once when they were at the cave. And her father too. Perhaps it depends. We still don't know how her power works.

Guys, I need answer. The Red Claw are spies planted by Tagon, but now they switches allegiance? Am I right?

no.. the red claw is just one person. Suhana the elder of the Tae Tribe. She didn't switch allegiance. Tagon needs Ago tribe to be a threat so they can have an excuse to start a war to divert people's anger towards him. So, I think Ago tribe having a united leader is a welcome to Tagon's plan.

Aarrghh I cannot help to feel so frustrated over the ending!

I know there should be more episodes / seasons but if it’s true (June 2020) I can lose the excitement I have now. Hopefully it will be sooner!

 

So that’s why Tagon had been ignoring Ago tribe news, he wants the war!

It’s all written in ‘Country 101’, king, country, flag, war etc.

 

I want to say I love how this drama can portray ‘the beginning’ of our society at this age.

We were like Wahan tribe before, grateful for what we have and live as brothers and slowly we become like Arthdal people, greedy, hungry of power, manipulation and taking sides.

Mungtae is perfect example how we often to overlook morality which we have in order to live, even though he doesn’t know why he must live.

Tagon showed us no matter how righteous we want to be, there will be hurdle, and once you give in, you can’t go back, just moving forward and be heartless. It’s all depends on our choice.

Tealha showed us the pain of betrayal and power is limitless. She once blinded by her love for Tagon only to find Tagon become the man she wanted, but he doesn’t want to share.

Saya reflected our children who grow up as what we taught them. Child become what they learn from their parents / closest person. 

 

I totally LOVE when Tanya named ‘subject’ as ‘baek seong’ which in Korean means Baek = Hundred, Seong = Star.

I don’t know if that’s the true origin in their history but I was in awe when she said ‘now you are at the lowest but you can be whatever you want and be higher’ things like that I don’t remember details.

So beautiful and deep.

 

I really hope this drama will come back soon (in the meanwhile, I’m looking forward to Nokdu’s Tale so I’m not too sad atm. Lol)

We know for sure that Eunseom will win because every prophecy has come true. Tagon will lose in the end, Arthdal has already been cursed by Tanya and Tagon is not aware of it. 

At the end, the viewer realizes that the union between Taealha, Tagon and Saya has been broken. Saya knows now about the existence of a twin brother... he is aware that Tagon is hiding something from him. Tagon plans to use Taealha's child to have his real heir... In other words, Tagon will never proclaim Saya his heir. Finally, Tagon and Taealha have already planned to betray each other, just like they promised each other in the past.  

 

I agree with you that this is the end of the tale....and a beginning.  On one side is the start of true civilization which often coalesce into larger entities like country, nation, empire.   On the other side is the formation of more loosely associated federation of tribes.  The former nation/empire clearly has an advantage in manpower and weaponry (the discovery of steel) and a warrior class (they have more wealth so can devote time and treasure to train a professional army...like the daekan group).   they also has better organization and a clear war plan...they know what they want and how to do that.  Plus they have a city wall to protect their city.... many attacks by barbarians against cities have failed due to the attackers running out of food and have to leave.

 

the fedieration has strength in a united leader (temporarily, unless he gets killed) but their war plan is unclear, disjointed, and the tribes too independent and may not stick together when things go bad.  They don't have as much training either.  Their last advantage is that they are familiar with their home terrain and can do ambushes against the attackers.   they better stay on the defense of their homeland to stand a chance against the nation/empire.

 

Throughout history there are many cases of large empires unable to conquer small states and both exist concurrently (England and Scotland, Yuan Dynasty and Annam....).   So the thought by some Soompian that Eunseon people will ultimately win is highly premature.

 

In any case this reader does not think they will make a sequel (although that would be highly interesting in how the writer think of what is important, freedom or orderliness ….or both).
