[Drama 2019] Haechi, 해치

Recommended Posts

This episode is truly a retaliation for all the insults and trials that Yeoning received earlier. Unceasingly, I was delighted that one by one proof would be revealed by yeoning, munsu and other colleagues. It must be admitted that the haechi storyline always managed to surprise. It was a bit sad indeed when wibyoung remembered his past filled with hard work, but in the end he had to pay for his actions because after all he made himself fall into evil.


I seem to miss the other part to watch :(


And about ilwoo and ara bts, sbs seem to know very well how yeoji is missed by the audience: D I hope that next week's episode yeoji will really come back to haechi ... And for ara, see how much he push herself until the end of the shoot even though she has to wear that crutch.

Okay, I need to catch up on last week's episodes :D. Didn't have time to watch Haechi last week -_-.

 

Anyways, here's a new released BTS :tounge_xd:.

 

Btw, do we have any news about Go Ara? I wonder if she's already filming again, because she should be back by episode 33.

So when is the last episode..?? Is it tomorrow or next week....

I hope they manage to cover up until the rebellion that Prince Mil Poong was said to have led and the immediate history right after Yeoning's ascension to the throne. 

 

Haechi is such an interesting story.  However,  I think what goes against it is the complexity of its politics and the many side characters who all have some important role to play at some point of the story.  I think most viewers expect their sagueks nowadays to basically revolve around romance. The history merely serves as the backdrop. It's less complicated that way. 

 

Haechi spends more of its time on the politics. The romance is merely incidental. You hardly even see Yeoning having romantic moments with Yeo Ji. Drama"s more than halfway done but they have yet to confess anything. 

 

At the very least,  I just hope they have a decent kiss because it ends. None of that lips-smashed-against-each-other kind of thing. If that's all I'm gonna get out of their romance,  then let the payback be really worth the wait. :D

I shouldn't have come alllllll the way to the back of the thread but I couldn't resist! I'm only on episode 23/24 from all of this (very dry eyed) bingeing I've managed to do. I just got up to where Yi Tan tells Yeon-ning that his plan will backfire on him.

 

I totally agree that this drama focuses on more of the political aspect of things, especially between the Norons and Sorons power dynamic and structure of the government. I knew that the king was going to upset once hearing the commoner's comment to the Crown Prince. That was a huge strike right there to the Prince's power, I think. The king is often quite skeptical about his power so it hit a weak spot. I'm actually staying because of the political aspect side of things, so the romance is only an addition to the package on my end (although I did enjoy that very brief scene where our daring Crown Prince told YJ what would happen if she became a court maid...)

 

The drama is more than halfway done (sad) and he's only told her something along the lines of: "It's okay if you don't feel the same way as long as we think the same." ...I don't think that's good for me. I don't like the idea of YJ being a court lady but I feel like that might be the only way for their relationship to grow. I agree that I don't want any type of lip smashing type of kiss, but a tiny tad of romance between the two would sate me. We're not asking for too much, right...?

History lesson

 

Contrary to what we seen on this drama regarding Seo ssi, Yi Geum's principal wife, presently Crown Princess (based on Queen Jeongseong)

 

Haechi0506-00238-1.jpg

 

Some historical facts on Queen Jeongseong of the Dalsung Seo clan (정성왕후 서씨 1693-1757)

 

In 1703 Queen Jeongseong married the then Prince Yeoningun when she was 10 years old & he was 8 years old (feature in the drama Dong Yi)

 

 

 

It is said that Queen Jeongseong when she was young, her father in law Sukjong dotes on her, each day when he sees her, Sukjong will definitely radiant in smiles, moreover Queen Jeongseong’s disposition & temperament was elegant, generous & filial piety that she will comes at all weather without fail to send her greetings to her father in law then will nurse him when he is ill & taking personal care to serve him his medicine tonic & prescription. Queen Jeongseong also renders the same greeting to her mother in law Choi Suk Bin at Bo Gyeong Dang & often visits her at her private residence.

 

Although that Queen Jeongseong’s family is politically link with Noron faction & was she was also implicate, during Gyeongjong’s reign the Shinim purge in 1721-1722 called the Shinim Sahwa (辛壬士祸), but then Queen Jeongseong still carries on to do her duty to the memorial of Sukjong & Choi Suk Bin

 

Yeongjo & Queen Jeongseong didn’t have a harmonious martial marriage due to the constant harassment of the intensified faction conflicts & the handful Queen Dowager Seonui of Eo Clan (Gyeongjong 2nd Queen 1705-1730), then due to some unknown reason, Queen Jeongseong was childless but she has a close bonding relationship with her “default” son Crown Prince Sado that she treat him as her own son. It was said that Queen Jeongseong was the mediator & buffer between Yeongjo & Crown Prince Sado & when she died, the father & son relationship collapse.

 

Princess Hyegyeonggong in her memoirs wrote recalls Queen Jeongseong was warm & gentle & benevolent in nature that her “default” mother in law has a very cordial relationship with her

Yeongjo 33rd years of his reign in 1757, was recorded in the annals that Queen Jeongseong’s illness suddenly took a bad turn & deteriorated that the symptoms portray that her finger nail turn blue, constant vomits black blood, 2 days later, she passed away at Changdeokgong palace, she was 66 years old.

 

It is said that Yeongjo made constant visit when Queen Jeongseong was ill, when she became seriously ill, Yeongjo wrote a memoir about Queen Jeongseong titled “大王大妃行状” of the remembrance of their memories, cherish hope & dreams that he had the greatest hope that they were to grow old & grey together in which Yeongjo continues to live his life until he was in his 80s.

 

Crown Prince Sado mourns in grief for the lost of Queen Jeongseong. He wrote many articles of poetry for her condolences in her funeral oration which was collect in “凌虚关漫稿”

 

Queen Jeongseong was buried in Hongneung 弘陵. She was given the title Queen Jeongseong in 1759

When I first watched Haechi, I thought I really enjoyed the first half of it. Cute and funny.  Sometimes sad. 

 

But going into episodes 21 - 22, with the story arc of those children being sold to Qing and that young girl who murdered the nobles (great acting by the way! I hope that girl returns in the story.  The actress who played her also had such great chemistry with Jung Il Woo and their scene when he asked her why she did what she did just broke my heart. :tears:) , I became more emotionally invested in the story.  It was just so intense!  But the intensity kept mounting going into episodes 23 - 24.  And now with episode s 29-30...and going into 31-32...my heart just races with almost every scene.

 

I miss the budding romance aspect of Haechi, but I must stay I love, love, love seeing Yeoning transforming into the man who who would be king.  :)

 

(I hope when Go A Ra returns and Yeoning's courtship of Yeo Ji resumes, the writer and PD will give their relationship the same intensity as the rest of the story.:rolleyes:)

seems like the Queen was a great lady in her time. unfortunately the drama didn't really portray her in a good light .

Just wanted to sing my praises to the awesome cast once again:

Jung moon sung is so great. Seriously, he's so versatile, so underrated- get this man a nomination at baeksang for best supporting actor. Anyways, it's thoroughly infuriating and enjoyable to watch him as milpoong. The veteran sageuk actors, lead and supporting, are wonderful to watch as always. Bravo to them as well. And of course, it's been thoroughly satisfying to see jung il woo in a great drama and completely nail it. I've had the pleasure of  discovering kwon yul and park hoon here (haven't seen them in voice 2 or memories of Alhambra, respectively, which they were much praised in), and they're good, period. Even go ara, who, quite frankly is the weak link here acting-wise(no shame in that, everyone else is really, really good), shows probably her best performance since reply '94 and has a great character here. On that note, complete hats off to kim yi young, who has given us another fabulous sageuk after yi san. When she gets it right, she absolutely is a master at that enjoyable fiction+history combo and is notably strong at creating memorable characters, both main and supporting. And kudos to Lee yong suk as well, he's pretty awesome and the dismal script of the great seer did not do him(or the actors...) justice, so nice to see him helm a solid sageuk after iljimae. 

I know we still have 4 weeks' worth of episodes left, but I have confidence that they'll finish strong. And I hope the cast and crew know how much the viewers appreciate this drama, despite the ratings(to which I flip the bird).

Have you guys seen the video for the latest OST?  I can't find the english translation yet but I tried to google-translate it and it looks like the lyrics are sad.  And the video is about Yeoning and Yeo Ji.  Coupled with the lyrics of the first OST "Love To Death", it looks like this couple will have a tragic ending.  I already expect it coz Yeoning was a real person and there wasn't any Yeo Ji in his life, unless her character was based on someone he knew. But it still makes me sad.
