Back to Haechi... what Minister Min had done?! Now this proves he is truly very dangerous, knowing he is in lower position than before. Can't wait for the next episodes. And hoping for more DM backstory and YJ too. 

 

 

Well it seems he is trying to get back into the "high and mighty power" that he had lost.  By bringing in the girl it looks as though he's the one who is trying to solve the cases.  Though we know it's not just about the murder crime but also the "human trafficking".

 

A few more days to go.

but I already ship them. :scream::wub: Thank you for sharing their bts vid... so cute! 

 

So later part of their bts, Jung IlWoo is teasing Go Ara?! :wub: He had tried to do this in Running Man, when asked who among his co-stars made his heart flutter. He answered for him it's Go Ara. But the moment was interrupted because of RM love team Ji Hyo and Jung Kook. Ara was relieved I guess. 

Ha ha...I thought you might just be shipping them as YeoYeo^^. Yeah, me too. I'm betraying the LAra couple..now shifting to WooRa? :D

Oh yeah, I watched that RM episode as well...I wonder which scene made his heart flutter :wub:. Yes, he was teasing her in the BTS, saying YeoJi is pretty, although Ara doesn't seem to believe him^~^. Remember on the first part of that RM episode as well when Ara said "saranghae" to Jo In Sung?..ha ha...and then Il Woo said, he feels like crying :tounge_xd:.

 

I hope MJH won't use the girl, but judging from the preview, she might have confessed she did it...thus we have this scene..

Annyeong!  :)

 

Like everyone on this thread, I'm watching this drama and currently looking forward to its succeeding episodes.  I'm not familiar with most of the actors playing in it, except for Go Ara, whom I saw previously in "Hwarang", and I didn't really like the way her character was developed in that drama.  

 

I've heard and read about King Yeongjo, but my knowledge about him stems from the 2011 drama "Dong Yi" which, funny enough, I've only seen last year.  I liked that drama very much and found myself very much surprised that the premise of it was based on real occurrences in Joseon history.  This is why I decided to watch "Haechi" because I want to see the story of the son that came of the union between King Sukjong and his lowborn beloved consort, Choi Sukbin.

 

So far, I'm liking what I see.  I like all of the main characters and find the villains quite interesting as well.  I may not agree with their motivations and methods, but I do like the fact that they're not one-dimensional.  I hope the drama becomes more interesting as it goes along and that the characters are threshed out more fully.  From what I read, the writer is the same one that wrote "Dong Yi".  This drama isn't going to be as long as that one, but just the same, I hope the writer and director are able to develop the story very well

 

Looking forward to chatting and sharing thoughts with everyone here.  :D

Kim Ki Young also wrote the drama "Yi San" feature a rather "grumpy pot" Yeongjo, therefore she had cover the life & times of Yeongjo

@akhenaten hello there, chingu! Welcome to this thread. :) I first heard about Haechi when offered to Go Ara during (or while airing) Miss Hammurabi and I became interested because of her role as a damo. Then the news that the male lead would be Jung Il-Woomade me even more excited. But things got me thrilled when I heard the story of Haechi is related to Dongyi. I also watched that drama, and even loved all of the actors. Compared to Dongyi, Haechi is fast paced and the plot is darker, but at the same time it has more comic sides. I hope so the development will be more and more interesting. And Yeoji's role would remain daebak as how it started. *off-thread-topic* Speaking of Hwarang, I enjoyed it as a whole but would admit Ahro role has a poor character development compared to other roles played by Go Ara, especially when compared to her recent ones, Black's Haram and Judge Park in Ms. Hammurabi. So I hope Yeoji character will follow the latter. :sweatingbullets:

 

@lightbringer06 Can I ship both? Don't sue me, Judge Im :D 

 

The RM guesting.... yeah I laughed at il-woo when he said he felt crying. Ara is too honest to mention Jo In-sung. And what does she mean "passionate" romance genre? Il-Woo's reaction when she says that, he is blushing while saying lots of kissing scenes (something like that). :P:D

I think he mentioned the first taping or the first scene they did together... RM hosts should asked them further but the focus shifted to their resident love team.

Yeoning is wise but the old Minister Min is wiser :angry:

Can't wait what will happen next. We are left in a cliffhanger!

Well at least it let him knows that he still need to be aware of the danger that this man can do to him. 

Oh it's Monday :blush:

Ha ha...were you shipping LAra  as well? :D

I think Ara used the word 'melo' during that RM ep..and yeah, it means lots of 'passionate scenes'...ha ha..I was hoping they ask Il Woo further about them if only JongKook didn't interfere, and so the focus shifted to them :).

 

Thanks for the photo stills :kiss_wink:. Here's more...

*off-thread-topic* I believe those who love Ms. Hammurabi would surely fall for LAra in that drama eventhough the main focus of the story is not romance. I hope Haechi will achieve the same development. :heart:

 

Thanks for sharing all stills. 

 

And finally Go Ara updated on IG today. She is back on taping... Hope she will be fully recovered. Eventhough her role is fictional, with lesser Yeoji in the scene will never be the same.

Hmmm.  Yeo Ji seems a bit reluctant to touch Yeoning in that scene.  Her hands are closed into fists and her upper body is stiff, as if she's trying to keep herself away from him.  

 

I actually like the idea of Yeoning and Yeo Ji falling in love.  Whether or not it prospers is another story altogether, because we all know Yeoning was a real person and I don't really know if Yeo Ji's character was based on someone he really knew then.  From what I've read, he had around 6 wives (i.e. queens and consorts) in his lifetime, and I wouldn't put it past the realm of possibility that he probably had several unnamed and unaccounted for concubines as well.

 

Even if their ship were to eventually sink, though, I just hope the writer and director develop it in such a way that it's organic to the story and their characters' development.  I want to feel with them as they fall in love, and not to be told that they are.  I want their romance to be developed and acted in such a way that the viewers like myself would find ourselves immersed in it, and when it ends, I want my heart to get really broken along with theirs.  I want Yeoning and Yeo Ji to feel real.  Right now,  Yeoning is already aware of her as a woman and is starting to feel more for her than he did for the other women in his life.  All he needs is a bit of a push and he's just gonna tumble down into love with her.  Yeo Ji is still a bit of a mystery in so far as how she perceives Yeoning.  I can't really tell yet if she's starting to like him as more than one of her comrades, or if she's starting to see him as a man and not a crown prince.  At least I know she respects him and likes him as a person.  

 

I'm still waiting for that sucker-punch-in-the-gut moment between Yeoning and Yeo Ji, but I don't want the writer to rush it.  I want her to build it gradually and make it worth the wait so that when they finally come together, it will be beautiful.  And please, please, please, PD-nim:  no close-lipped kisses that look as if their faces just got smashed together.  And writer-nim, please don't do what you did with "Dong Yi".  So many scenes wasted when we could have had more than just touching hands and smiling at each other.  I'm not asking for any love scenes, but just nice intimate scenes that will show how deeply and strongly Yeoning and Yeo Ji feel for each other. :)

@yoo1 Yes, I am so happy to see her updates on her IG..I'm following her so I'm always waiting for any posts she has..and glad she's finally back..I hope her ankle's better now because I still wanna see YJ kicking some bad asses :D.

 

 

@akhenaten Coudn't agree with you more. It's actually a slow burn romance because YJ is very oblivious in terms of it. I prefer it this way as well rather than feeling too rushed about it, I just don't know how the writer will actually develop it considering it is not the focal point of the story and we only have 28/14 eps left. Haven't actually watched DongYi so idk how this writer works. As long as the romance progress is well written and is satisfying, I don't think I'll be complaining of them not ending up together. A bittersweet ending, if you will. And like I said again and again, their survival is of utmost important.

 

EDIT: That photo still of YeoYeo was actually the ending part of tonight's episode :tounge_xd:. I saw the clips!!...YN was teaching YJ I think about what a 'palace maid'?...don't know if that was right cause I don't understand what they're saying. And then...:kiss_wink:..cut..to be continued..ha ha :D

Just finished ep 11. Seriously, this drama keeps getting better and better.  I like the strong bond between royal brothers; and the king is getting more and more confident. I applaud the drama of how it portrays king GJ. He could do so much more for Joseon with YN's helps if history was on his side.

 

I read that someone wonder why Saheonbu arrests YN and not MP, since he killed so many people.

The reason is that who is the killer and who is the victims. In Joseon, not all people are treated equally.

MP killed salves, who, in the eyes of the nobles, mean nothing ( although MP killed YH, but that case was not investigated and to most people, YH died of illness).

However, although YN does not kill anyone. There is a eye-witness, and the victims are nobles and are killed by slaves.

To those nobles, it is not a crime to kill salves, but it is a crime to kill nobles. It is just a f-k up caste system.

It's unfortunate to not see Go Ara for 3 eps but I am glad that they are giving her time to rest well and that there will be no negative effect on the story. I wonder, though, how will they fill her absence in those episodes cause a lot can happen even in just one episode. 

 

At times like this, I wish this was a preproduced drama..:huh:

Wow. Some incredible moments this episode. 

Spoiler

That scene where all the people threw in their identification in the pile... and even just stones and pieces of wood with their names from those who don't have an i.d. tag. 

The relationship between the officials of the different factions, and within factions, is so compelling to me. 

And when yi geum was reading out the names(well, not actually their names- the slaves are i.d.'ed with certain physical characteristics) of the slaves... 

And the bgm...swoon. Give that music PD a raise! 

Edit: I love that yeoji's obliviousness to yi geum's feelings (well... oblivious up to the end of this episode, haha) aren't without a reason though. Having been a saheonbu damo, serious business is always first on her mind- girl has priorities!
