[Current Drama 2019] My Country, 나의 나라 - Fri & Sat @ 23:00 KST

Recommended Posts

First time to watched a historical kdrama, wasnt keen on it seem i though i might not understand all the details, and turns out to be true.  Many characters and i cant determine what ones relatio ship with is to the other, their motives, which one is the bad guy etc.

 

1) when Hwi was forcibly shipped off to the military, was he and Nam seon fighting on the same side - camp of Gen Yi Seong Gyo?  Or was Hwi fighting on the side of the current King?

It seemed to be, because they sent messages to each other via arrows.

But why was the other camp ordered to be completely killed if they were on the same side?

 

2) BangWon told Nam Jeon that Seo Geom was supposed to be on the Gen.'s side?  Does this mean he thinks that Nam Jeon killed Seo geom?

 

3) why is Hwi considered poor if his father was a commander and famous swordsman? Or was it because he died via suicide and thus they ended up being poor?

 

4) did Hwi agree to the deal so that he can get Yeon back, so Nam Jeon would stop holding her hostage?

1) Actually both General Yi Seong-gye and the current king are on the same side at this point of time, which means the same side as Hwi. The current king ordered General Yi to seize the land across the river from China. So I think the reason why General Yi wants to kill the advance party is because  he does not want them to reveal his plans of going back to the palace to revolt? Coz Hwi's gang saw them packing up preparing to leave. Not really sure but this is my best guess.

 

2) Yes I actually think so too.

 

3) Hwi's father was framed for corruption or something, and sentenced to death. Thus at his point of death, his title of being a commander had been removed, and his descendants were deemed children of a dishonored man, thus they had to live with a low status.

 

4) Looks like it at this point of time, we have to see more of this as it goes along.

@cherriesblue  Welcome to historical kdrama hope this experience allows you to watch many more.  Although most are fiction still most are rich in value.   Filled with traditions, music, costumes, beautiful scenery and a glimpse of people and places allowing us to escape into the past.  Where stories are colorful and unique and that touch you in ways you can't imagine.

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTxt-Ga0-fvyr-XnQNFauS

 

There are others here who are much better than I in answering your questions but here are my thoughts as well.

1. They were suppose to be on the same side all fighting for the king.  But the General was planning to overthrow the king and those 75 or so survivors were considered expendable and a threat to the plan and so were those he was sending in to kill them.  Including HSJ whose own father was willing to sacrifice him because he isn't and never has been thought of as a real son but instead a pawn to be used at will.  For his revenge and ideas of a new country and his own power and greed.

 

2. I believe BW meant by his side meaning that NJ had taken SG's place.  In my thoughts letting it be said loud and clear by BW I know who you are and what you have done and this isn't your country and never will be.  From what little we know I believe SG was a good man, leader and father total opposite of NJ and he molded a great son in SJ no doubt...

For most times an apple doesn't fall far from the tree in which it grew...

 

3. SG took his own life not by guilt but in protecting his children and maybe others in the only way he knew how.  Both very young and no way of making a living for themselves.  Poverty and loss of status comes quickly when both parents are gone and the whole world sees your father as something other than what he was and his family as nothing.

 

4. I am not sure what NJ's deal was other than making SJ feel as if he had nothing to offer his sister but less and in protecting her to keep her in comfort and safe.  As for HSJ he has his own agenda and it would seem he is tired of having no power of his own to be able to protect SJ and those he loves even himself.

 

My guess only... Wanting BW dead at the hand of SJ might be his way but I have a feeling it just won't work because SJ will soon find out the kind of man BW is an maybe what kind of relationship he had with his father if any?  I wondered did BW have a tattoo on his arm LOL most likely not.  As most royals and nobles didn't blemish their skin but it did come to my mind when BW mentioned SG.  Not to mention BW is much more capable than what he allows those around him to see LOL!

4) did Hwi agree to the deal so that he can get Yeon back, so Nam Jeon would stop holding her hostage?

 

 

 

 

 

1) Hwi was dispatched to as the advanced army team . This team is led by General Choi and the King to attack Liaodong. Then the King asked General Yi Seong Gye to standby as back up unit at Wihwado (Wihwa Island) to assist the advanced party. That is why Hwi is giving messages throu the arrow across the Amok river. But then, General Yi changed his mind when he thinks that it is useless to attack Liaodong as it will bring more harm than benefit, that is why he decided to retreat and make a Coup D'Etat. You can read about Wihwado Retreat. It is one of the famous historical event in South Korea History. 

 

2) Yes, I think Bang Won suspected Nam Jeon. If you watch properly, Seo Geom's used to be the leader of North Allegiance Army which is under Yi Seong Gye and Nam Jeon is only the Commander of Royal Stable. Not to forget Nam Jeon also is a great swordsman of Goryeo so it is more logical he is the right hand man of Yi Seong gye rather than Nam Jeon. 

 

3) Eventhough Seo Geom is a high ranking army commander and a great swordsman but he did not live a lavish life. He takes care of his army well being and ration first before him. He will give some of his rations to them first and only take some for himself. That is why he was charged stealing nation's ration (though this must be a rumor coz a good person like will not do it unless desperate). Before he died, they gave him option. To go into the cauldron and burned alive or admit his mistake and suicide in exchange his kids will get to continue living as the status they were in. He chose the later but it was all a lie. His kids is being strip down from their status and force to live as a very low class. They called them ghost and said that their dad is a traitor. Hence the poor lifestyle they were living in. 

 

4) This is too early to tell. Hwi managed to read the secret letter in his father's armour suit but we have yet to learn what is it. Maybe he has no choice. To Hwi his sister's wellbeing is more important than anything.

I see, but why did they have to kill the advance party themselves? Why didn't they call the remaining men with Hwi so they can all retreat? Is it so they would have a reason to retreat? Like, their advance party was entirely killed so they had to retreat?

Because the advance party is led by General Choi and the King. General Yi Seung Gye wants to take over the country so he must eliminate whoever that can be a witness or can be a threat to his Coup D’Etat. That is why Nam Jeon also instructed those who came back from killing the advance party also being killed. Because this group also can be a threat or witness to his decision. This is a game of power. You can learn more about Wihwado retreat and Yi seung Gye in wikipedia

Did anyone find the scene which YBW and gang were ambushed in the forest so abrupt? Previous ep we saw them starting their trip,  and then suddenly HJ was fighting against the bad guys, the queen already injured, and YBW's bun became disheveled.

Yes, I also noticed that it was strange how that fight scene 

in the forest was interrupted.

I dont like it.

Too bad we didnt see BW looking dangerously calm while 

waiting for the attack.

I think there are similarities to how BW is portrayed in our drama and in SFD.

BW obeys orders but no one knows what he really means.

He is just waiting for his opportunity.

And when he says what he really thinks then its scary.

Its clear why Nam Jeon sees BW as a threat.

Today's episode wasn't as fierce as previous ones yet I enjoyed it as usual. 

 

Hwi is heartbreaking. He keeps on losing everything, his friend, his sister, now also forced to part ways with his love, and now starting to lose himself and walk through ways he didn't plan to. He should stop being weak and used by others, specially Sunho and his father to achieve their ambitions and climb the ladder. 

 

That scene with Yeon was so heartbreaking I shed tears with him. His trembling lips. I understand Sunho is trying to protect him in his own way, but it's still frustrating. 

 

And that last scene, wow, made my heart racing! I don't know about you but Seolhyun is doing a great job here.

 

Looking forward to tomorrow's episode.
