[Current Drama 2019] Haechi, 해치 - Mon & Tue @ 22:00 KST

Recommended Posts

i love the posters! especially that Go Ara is in the center.

 

@spark101

i feel you. i have alot of expectations and with every teaser it only grows. and since this one is more political, i think IF we got a romance we'll be very subtle. which is what i wish. plus Go Ara looks super great at the poster s and teaser. Jung Il woo even mentioned she had to lear other languages as well to prepare.

i know Jung Il woo is popular and mostly of his fandom prob wants him getting shirless or some fluffly romance.  but i feel like before, he got trapped a little bit in roles that dont let him show much of how great he is in drama. maybe now, after the military service, he'll get more of it.  The Return of Iljimae is for me one of his finests roles, followed by 49 days. kind of hope he'll doing more roles like these ones.

 

as for the writer, Kim Yi-young,

i only watched Horse Doctor and currently i'm seeing Dong Yi. and i personally like how she written females characters.

(i read that ppl didnt like Hwajung, tho.)

the only thing that i wish more than ever is that we get more females roles. so far only Go Ara appears as the main. i saw another one, that i can remember.

 

also, i'm confused: how many eps will be? i first read 24. then 32 now 48.

 

sorry for the long post.

Well as a historical set in 18th c. Joseon, it's only logical that most of the cast would be male. 

Dong Yi was honestly too cinderella-ish for me but it had its strong points that made it a hit. I caught up horse doctor pretty late and was surprised how much I liked it. And yes, kim yi young tends to do a decent job writing the female characters so they're not weak or useless. And looks like from the description go ara's character is said to be capable, so I just hope it's a step up from her previous sageuk performances. 

It's 48 30-minute episodes. 2 episodes are aired back-to-back a day. 24 hours running time in total. So roughly half the length of kim yi young's past dramas, which I think will be an advantage since she sometimes tends to drag things on too much(one of her main weaknesses as a writer).

The pretty epic 19-person image on the homepage: 

WE16062820_ori.jpg

 

I'm so used to the cheopji hair style (low bun with the little ornament atop the head) in this era in dramas I forgot the big wigs weren't actually banned until during yeongjo's reign. I'm trying to Identify yeongjo's official wife and concubine(whom he had before he was even crown prince), but I can't figure it out... is it the rightmost two women with the lavender skirts?

"I'm trying to Identify yeongjo's official wife and concubine(whom he had before he was even crown prince), but I can't figure it out... is it the rightmost two women with the lavender skirts? "

 

According to the cast list at the website there is a few Royal Ladies

 

Queen Inwon

Seo ssi - Prince Yeoning's principal wife

Crown Princess - Crown Prince later Gyeongjong's wife

 

Queen Inwon of Gyeongju Kim clan - Sukjong 3rd Queen, played by Nam Ki Ae who played Cha Soo Hyun's mother in Encounter

 

Cast list only have Yeongjo or Prince Yeoninggun principal wife listed as Seo ssi played by Choi Su Im (최수임)

 

History lesson

Yeongjo's Queen Consort, Queen Jeongseong of Dalsung Seo clan, married Prince Yeoninggun at age 10 in 1703. 1721 when Gyeongjong ascended the throne, she was Crown Princess. In 1724, she was Queen Consort when Prince Yeoninggun ascended the throne as Yeongjo. She died in 1757 age 66 years

 

As for Royal Noble Consort Jeong of Hamseong Lee clan, mother of Crown Prince Hyojang is not mentioned in the cast list. She borne Prince Gyeonguigun (경의군, 敬義君) later Crown Prince Hyojang in 1719. She died in 1721

 

In the reign of Sukjong, one have to remember that Gyeongjong was Crown Prince & he is in the cast list played by Han Seung Hyeon (한승현)

 

Crown Princess (Crown Prince's wife) is in the cast list played by Song Ji Min (송지인) 

 

History lesson

 

Crown Princess married Crown Prince at age 14 in 1718, becomes Queen Seonui of Hamjong Eo clan when Gyeongjong ascended the throne in 1721. In 1724 during Yeongjo reign, she was Queen Dowager Gyeongsun. She died in 1730 age 26

@gerrytan8063 They also list 초홍, who yeongjo/yi geum meets and brings her in(says so under seo-ssi's description- she gets mad that he did this). presumably she is the one concubine he had before being crown prince.

I can only quote Yeongjo's Consorts that is listed in the Joseon annals

 

According to the Cho Hong (초홍) description, she is a Gisaeng that Yi Geum, Prince Yeoninggun later Yeongjo frequent in the brothel which is more his confidant & a person he can find solace & comfort

 

She is a fictional character

The details of her character are fictional for sure, but I was thinking the writer loosely based her on Consort Jeong of the Lee Clan- after all, she was his one concubine that he had before becoming heir to the throne. Of course, the actual 정빈 had already had three kids before dying at the age of 26/27, and cho-hong is listed as already being in her late 20s. Though on that note, while the character descriptions say that seo-ssi would be later queen jeongseong, it didn't say anything about cho-hong becoming jeong-bin later, so who knows how much the writer decided to change up the more minor real-life characters.

Hello everyone~

 

I came here for Park Hoon hehe. And i watched the latest episode of Running Man to see more PH, and found out the 4 main cast are charming in their own ways. I've seen all of them in other dramas before. I hope Haechi is a success too!

 

Fighting Haechi!

 

I'm not much a saeguk fan, but my dad is. He likes history and the tactics in saeguks. I might promote this drama to him eventually hahaha :lol:

New stills. It's from their first meeting at the gisaeng house, where go ara's character is investigating Prince Milpoong. Looks like she's going undercover in the gisaeng clothes. Comical mole aside(just to make extra sure of the disguise, I guess, ha), she's really a stunning woman.

Just wanted to share a more closeup picure of the one I just posted: 

While she definitely doesn't suit this overly heavy makeup (but I think the disguise is supposed to be over-the-top on purpose, and a bit comical/clownish to contrast and almost emphasize the boyishness of her usual getup and demeanor), her eyes are just too stunning to ignore, wow. Just had to point this out, lol.
