[Drama 2019] My Country, 나의 나라

Usually Netflix will show the next 2 episodes with expected air dates.  And usually the next episode showed up the next day after its air date in Korea.  I'm in the US.  Still no episode 13 or 14 available on Netflix.  I asked customer support - they had no answer.  I'll wait until tonight, but something's not right!  This would totally suck if Netflix screwed this up.  I don't want to go to some fly-by-night streaming service with its warnings of malware, etc. to watch this, but Netflix is giving me gas.  Hope they get it right!

 

Somebody in the Swoon Jenga Youtube posted in the comments My Country broadcast for 13 & 14 was cancelled or delayed due to baseball schedule?  Anybody hear that?  

 

I contacted Netflix US today to ask about why episodes 13-14 were not uploaded. The person said netflix did not receive the episodes and that the drama was on hiatus as of now. No information as to when the episodes 13-16 will be uploaded to Netflix, but that Netflix will upload the episodes in the future. I ask point blank if the drama had been cancelled-the person said it had not been cancelled and Netflix would show episodes 13-16. The problem is there is no confirmed Netflix airdate as of now for episodes 13-16.
Perhaps if everyone contacts the Netflix and ask about where are the episodes, maybe they might release a statement about what is going on. The customer service person I spoke with said they do not have much information given to tell people.

 

I haven't heard that anything was cancelled or delayed due to baseball schedule. Someone on MDL posted there is a rumor that Netflix only had the liscense for Ep. 1-12, or somehow lost the liscense and that is why they are not showing ep. 13-14.  I don't know about that. It seems strange for Netflix owned The Swoon Youtube to post a new video of jenga with the cast if netflix lost liscense. 

I hope Netflix get it together and upload the final ep 13-16 soon.

Customer service told me to inform Netflix and directed me to a link that requests for drama titles. I’m not sure if this will work but I followed the instruction in any case. We need to let Netflix know somehow and maybe a deluge of inquiries and request will alert them to this issue. I guess this is the least we can do. Social media accounts on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook might help too.

 

For the sake of their remaining viewers, I hope Netflix cleans up this fiasco soon.

It's 11:00 p.m., 11/16 - still no episode 13 on Netflix!  Has anybody heard anything from Netflix customer support about this?  If not, where are you all watching the next episodes?  Only raw available - or with English subs?

 

Maybe someone can alert Soompi and have them write a news article about this - it is ridiculous that Netflix has failed so spectacularly......

I think no one has heard any official info yet from any region. So far, we have issues from Australia, US. Customer service mentioned Southasia, Indonesia, Philippines all having the same problem. Should we all just bombard Netflix International with our messages? :D

Episode 14 turns out to be one of my favorites. I have been waiting for 13 episodes to finally see what I hope to see.

 

Hwi has been fighting for other people all his life with Hee Jae patiently waiting by his side. Finally, it is time he protects her and fights with her side by side for a common cause, for a country where they can be free.

 

There are so so many things I love about this episode:

 

- The way Hwi desperately saves Hee Jae: he could run away but he rushes to Ihwaru and takes an injured Hee Jae away on horse from the pursuit of many soldiers. The moment Hee Jae regains her consciousness, she wants to go back to Ihwaru for her people but he prevents her from going by holding her tightly - going back there means death. He doesn't leave her behind but choose to  fight a losing battle because he is obviously outnumbered. Finally it comes a day when I can see Hwi risks his life to save Hee Jae, even if it means they have to die together.

 

- The way Hwi treats Hee Jae with utmost gentleness: When he gentle lays her head on the cave wall, he uses one of his hand as cushion first to prevent her head from being hurt. He rips a shred from his clothing to tend to her wound. When he has to fight, he lets her rest near the tree and tries to assure that things will be over soon.  When they are rescued by Bangwon's people, he goes back to check on Hee Jae and both smiles at each other for assurance. He stays by her side when she is unconscious and gets treated by the doctor, then silently sits by her until she is awake, softly holds her and comforts her pain. He doesn't have to ask her if she is ok, his worry eyes are enough to let her know his concern. I love the way Hwi holds Hee Jae to his chest with his chin on the top of her head and his hand on her hair - it's very caring and intimate. 

 

- How Hwi finally says out loud his fear of losing her: near the end of episode when Hee Jae takes charge of preventing the King, he is very worry for her safety that he wants to do it himself. However, Hee Jae tells him not to be worry because it's her duty as the head of Ihwaru.

 

- There's a time skip again, now we are forward to 1400, the year of the Second Strife of Princes and also the year when Bangwon assumed the throne of Joseon. But Hwi and Hee Jae don't get separated like before. Together, they work for Bangwon to make him king though they have not consummated their relationship. She is officially a part of his life now. The country he wants to live in is the country where the people he cares about - his people - don't get hurt - and it includes Hee Jae.

 

- Hwi understands Hee Jae's pain and determination to revenge for her people in Ihwaru.

 

Hee Jae has been by Hwi's side for so long. She was there the day he lost to Seon Ho, the day he was drafted, the day his sister was killed. They love each other but Hwi was never there for Hee Jae. It's finally time when he saves her and shares her pain. Episode 14 is actually the one where these two have more screen time together than in other episodes and I am more than happy with that.

 

I am also glad that Bangwon steps forward to protect Hwi whom he considers his people and wins over both Hwi and Hee Jae. Someone who is worth serving because he cares.

 

As for Seon Ho, I was shocked at the ending at first. But then, I don't think his intention is to kill Hwi -  just to keep him out of the Second Strife. Poor Seon Ho, will you ever find a proper cause to live? Cos we all know how history goes.

@melp Due to the Netflix issue I haven't seen these last 2 episodes yet, but thankyou for sharing a little of what happens in regard to Hwi and Hee Jae. I too have been waiting to see some reciprocal effort from Hwi toward Hee Jae. She has been unconditionally devoted to the guy, through all his struggles, without much in return. It is about time he did more to show his love than a quick kiss under a tree, or an empty promise to return to her (which he never meant as he always proclaimed he would die when he killed Nam Joo). Though I am disappointed to hear there's another time jump and they are still not a proper couple. Like ok, you can't get married due to whatever political nonsense, but at least shack up and be together on the nights you aren't sword fighting, and whatnot. It's not like anyone at Ihwaru is going to tsk tsk if Hee Jae has a man sleep over now and then.

Then you will like the way Hwi treats Hee Jae in episode 14 because I can finally see that Hee Jae is important to him, a person he wants to protect in the country he helps build. 

 

I am ok with them not husband and wife now. After all, Hwi was all for survival and revenge, then now it's Hee Jae's turn to revenge for her people in Ihwaru. They can never be at peace together once their problems are not solved yet. My guess is they want to make Bangwon a king, then walk away. It's the old time, after all, not modern time.  :)  It takes time for Hee Jae to heal her wound and rebuild Ihwaru. The time jump is two years - not too long. And for sure they work closely together, sharing each and every plan for Bangwon.

 

Hee Jae's unconditional love for Hwi is partly due to the fact his father saved her when she was a kid. But the way Hwi treats Hee Jae now really makes her effort worthwhile. Hwi is kind, caring and gentle in nature and once other problems are gone, he can now have time for her and be really good to her.

I've been following those comments closely after each episode, it's true that much of the appraisal goes to Jang Hyuk but all other actors received a huge share as well. I think it depends on the preference of the one who chooses those comments out of the rest :sweatingbullets:

Is this a real question? It will take me years to explain my personal obsession so I better not start :w00t:

 

but anyway, I think in this particular case I think the character of Bangwon as interpreted by him has gotten many good responses. I guess people just clicked with it. I personally think Bangwon is very enjoyable to watch. I’ve been following JHs career for years and yes, he has had many praised works but also has been dragged for others. So I think its not particularly an obsession with him, the actor, but him in this role which has resonated positively (with a majority, possibly or at least a good amount of outspoken individuals :P

Still no information from Netlfix on episodes 13 & 14.  So a lot of us are still in the dark about what happens after episode 12.

 

Netflix customer service is useless - they have no new information.  I've told them there is lot of interest in this drama and it doesn't look good for them to not supply any information on the status of the last 4 episodes.  Many people are angry, not just the US - but internationally from what I understand.  I read an article on Cinemaholic that stated the release dates for ep. 13 & 14 to be 11/15 & 11/16 - from Netflix's own press release.

 

I'll continue to wait - please continue to fill us in on what is happening - for those of you who can watch it!  It will be a spoiler for us unfortunate Netflix viewers - but at least some of the suspense will be relieved!

LOL. same as @dramafan33 dont get me started about him. But, if you want to check out his work start with something lighter like Fate To Love You. 

 

But, honestly netz like to praise about his potrayal of LBW here. he did has a miss and critique from k-netz on his other project before. Not they really obsess or something. He carry LBW like the character is tailor made for him.

I'm not watching the drama, but my mother loves this drama (as well as Vagabond) - so it was pretty sad and awkward telling her there weren't any episodes of either dramas last week :lol:..... her facial expressions were priceless for the past two weeks. With Vagabond it was understandable since there's a legit reason, but it makes no sense here for ''My Country''. 

 

So it feels like they are either: 

- Holding the drama back so that it's in line with the Netflix premiere of the ''Crash Landing on You'' in  early -mid December. Originally the air date was rumoured to be in November, but it's changed to December 14. 

- Since Vagabond isn't airing as well, let's see if we can short change kdrama fans into staying with us longer, and check out other shows especially the Kdramas from 3 years ago we just released these past two months lol. 

- They literally only bought up to 12 episodes, but it's not popular on Netflix as they thought it would be and aren't buying more episodes or holding back the episodes. 

- Stop trying to convince Kdrama fans to wait for parts, we like to watch it live on demand (technically it's post 1 day - 1 week). 

 

 I dunno....honestly the least they could do is have announcements on when it'll be back.

Crash Landing On You is a tvN drama and My COuntry is a jtbc drama. These two drama is not even in the same time slot for Netflix to hold it. I read there is a problem with liscensing. Idky Netflix only buy the liscence for 12 episodes instead of 16. Did Netflix thought this drama is like American drama that usually only have 12-13 episodes per season??? 

 

I don't think they hold this drama coz it is less popular. In fact this drama always trending on weekends.

if you want a more heavier character of Jang Hyuk that shows his charisma, watch Voice. His character there (i forgot the name) is quite similar to YBW. A very layered character that has so deep emotions.

Hurrah!  Episodes 13 and 14 are showing up in US Netflix as available 11/19 and 11/20 - finally!

 

Maybe all our pleas and cries for help pushed Netflix to do something?

 

Anyway, I watched 13 & 14 in raw and have to say - in ancient Korea getting run through by a sword must have been some kind of greeting - like shaking hands!  

 

It seems like every time Hwi and Sunho meet they are stabbing each other - in that exact same spot that each of them know they will survive from.  Kind of like, "It's been a long time - how have you been?"  "Oh me, not doing so well - STAB!"   "WHY'D YOU DO THAT, BRO!?  "Ah, don't worry, you'll be fine in a day or two, take care!"

 

It takes the impact away when you already know even though the guy has a sword run through him, he's shot by multiple arrows and slashed multiple times, beat up, dragged by horses - he will lay down and rest for a night, get patched up by his cutie, and then hop up and be in fighting shape in about a day.  No massive blood loss, no lingering pain or injury, no infection - just, "I'm OK, run me through again!"

 

Oh and this poison that is running through Hwi's body only seems to effect him at times he is relatively safe - it doesn't bother him at all when he is fighting and cutting down 20 or thirty soldiers. 

 

90 degree bow to Jang Hyuk for his acting in this drama.  All the actors in this drama are exceptional, but he has taken on Bangwon's skin and is living in it.  If he doesn't get some kind of drama award for his acting in this drama the world just isn't fair.

 

And as others have said, it was good to see Whi take care of Heejae for once.  She has always been by his side, supporting him, patching him up after each of his many wounds.  It was good to see him tenderly reciprocate his care and feelings to her.  For two people supposedly so deeply in love, why haven't they consummated their relationship yet?  It seems they are both living under the same roof, it would be easy to make 'it' happen!  So many years they've been pining for each other - surely they've had some break in all the strife and drama to 'get together'?  Is their relationship going to be one of only caring and support?  Some passion between these 2 certainly would make their relationship more understandable and believable.
