I think so too. 

The problem is usually when men and women disagree on how to express that patriotism ;) And who has the right to define what love of country is.

Yep, we can't denied when we talk  heroes, war and civilization History almost all working by a Man.mostly women taught to act sweet, properly and devoted their live for families and husband however there's always Tough women's who's contribute and making the worst sacrifice to their country.

I agreed with Gen.Nokdu and simplicity of Yi kang to define it, a country is about people's who we care, our neighborhood  a village a regions we want to protect not a king who's we never met.

 Is such cynical flippant seeing how discrimination could clouding BYH judgment lead him to betrays his country and how the virtue enlighten BYK become a warriors.

Actually i believe at the end the educated BYH could found his true path  the divine ways  to saves his country.

The country is its people but often as in this case, the leadership trapped in their ivory tower... in their bubble of orpulence... forgets that. They forget that without the people there will be no country... no one to govern. You can see that the aristocrats in this think themselves above everyone and that the common folk work for them instead of the other way around. Or at the very least, it is a symbiotic relationship. Someone needs to work the land, produce the food so that everyone is fed. These people need to be cared for and not taken for granted. But the king is useless... he is so far removed from the realities of what the people face and his impotence as the leader leads to corruption and oppression at the local level. Not only that it opens the door to foreign invaders encroaching. He should be setting the direction for the nation but instead he's reactive.

YH was educated in Japan and was very influenced by the Meiji period advancements. One can understand why. Compared to Japan, Joseon seemed very backward and the common folk were horribly oppressed. He believed that Joseon could take a leaf or two out of the Japanese playbook. I imagine that's why he turned traitor. Ironically he became the monster that he despised about the nobles and officials of Joseon.

In every civil conflict (the Dongak uprising is not big enough to be called a civil war) there are the idealists who have zeal and willing to offer their lives for their causes, who persuade other to follow them blindly, and their followers who are often ambivalent and would switch side if they sense their side is losing.   We see all of that in this tale.

 

The Baek patriarch was right when he told his younger son... this country was lost long ago... when educated people like yourself go to the other side.  The reality of the late Joseon period, is severe illiteracy, wrong education (reading Chinese poetry and Confucian teaching does not help run a country), backward economy based entirely on agriculture, poor tax base inadequate to reform the country.... 1/5 of the population being slaves with wasted human resources for the rich and powerful only...…  all of these have to go for Joseon to advance... which eventually it did after the Japanese 35 years of occupation and a Korean War.  The Japanese themselves had their own blood letting to progress, during the early Meji period, so  it's Joseon turn... then China.

 

It is ironic when the older brother exhorted their demoralized followers for the night attack that they are going to fight as free men and that the last few months of being free as dongak members were worth all their suffering....  then after 20 thousands perished and they are all hunted down like rats, while the bystanders yell banzai banzai to the Japanese soldiers.... did most of the survivors truly relish that few months as free men, as they hide, mend their wounds,  betray... trying to survive?

Unfortunately this quality drama flew under the radar. Story line, along with acting, were superb. I just wished it got more recognition.

Jo Jung Suk, Han Ye Ri, Yoon Shi Yoon, And More Say Goodbye Following The Finale Of “Nokdu Flower”

by S. Cho

Following the last episode on July 13, the cast of SBS’s “Nokdu Flower” said goodbye to the drama and its viewers.

“Nokdu Flower” tells the story of two brothers who wind up on opposite sides of the Donghak Peasant Movement of 1894. The movement brought upon a riot during which religious leaders of Donghak and peasants from Jeolla Province joined forces to protest the government’s push for Catholicism. Choi Moo Sung played Jun Bong Joon, the main figure to lead an uprising with the common citizens, and Jo Jung Suk played Baek Yi Kang, who works by Jun Bong Joon’s side. The drama also focuses on Baek Yi Kang’s relationships with his brother Baek Yi Hyun (Yoon Shi Yoon) and Song Ja In (Han Ye Ri).

Along with a photo of himself and his script, Jo Jung Suk shared his admiration for the drama saying, “I think I was very fortunate to have been part of the production ‘Nokdu Flower,’ which tells the story of an important time period. The last six months were personally very meaningful and happy.”

The actor continued, “I want to express my gratitude and respect to the director, writer, cast, and all the other staff, as well as every extra who portrayed an important and unforgettable part of history. I felt much more responsibility for this drama, and aside from my character, this experience allowed me to deeply recognize the dignity of being human. I thank all the viewers who gave ‘Nokdu Flower’ lots of love, and I will see you again with an another great production.”

Just in case someone hasn't watched the last episode, please ignore and skip my post because it is regarding Yi Hyun.

 

First thing first, the drama increased my admiration for the three lead's acting. To be very honest, everyone acted really well in the drama (except for the king...which I found him overdramatic in some parts).

 

As for the ending...

 

What Yi Hyun did was unforgettable, but he is a sad character. In someway, he is similar to Jeon Bongjun. As Yi Hyuk mentioned, he always thought Jeon Bongjun was a violent person who fought for reform, yet Yi Hyun had piles of dead body at his feet as he sought for "civilization." Both of them want the best for their nation, and both seek to change the current system. No doubt, Yi Hyuk looked up to Jeon Bongjun, but unlike his brother, Yi Kang, he thought his method of reform was the best way, only to discover that he had been fooled (by himself and by Japan) all the time. 

 

And at the end, he sought for death...in fact, he had been seeking death for a long time. I think that is one of the reason why he picked up the man (the one he tortured at the beginning, the one he saved and allowed the man to beat up a Japanese soldier) to be his assistant. When the man begged Yi Hyuk to kill him because he was too much of a coward to kill himself, Yi Hyuk sparred him because that man "remembered the old Yi Hyuk" but another reason why Yi Hyuk sparred him could be that he see himself in that man's shadow. He was waiting for someone to kill him...that's why he sat there when Beo Deul shot at him. 

 

He want to, desperately, turned back to Yi Hyuk. He seek Jeon Bongjun's advice, only to receive a silent ultimatum. His dad was still ruthless and distorted as he had been, so he was not a person Yi Hyuk could find salvation. He loved his mom, but she was primarily under his father's influence. He hoped that Myung Shim would love him like he was in the past, but she had given up on him even though she had promised to wait for "Yi Hyuk" to come back. To the end, the only person who loved and saw him as who he really is, was Yi Kang. The one who really waited for him, even in the afterlife, was his only half brother....and the one who really understand him was his half-brother. He took his life , accepting what his brother had suggested, because he had nothing to live for...and the only solace he could find was the fact that his brother would once again called him "brother" again in the afterlife. 

 

None the less, Jo Jung Seok, Yi Kang, drew me to this drama, and it stayed with him....but the one who gave me a lasting impression was Jeon Bongjun, Choi Moo-Sung's character.

Two last episode  really heartfelt, how far we are humans sought our humanity in the world full of discrimination and lost of identity , the pain of seeing our fellow sacrifice their lives to liberate themselves as equals mans who had same options to rule and to be ruled nevertheless always there's who's lost identity,

Swayed by their principles or by theirs own greed but at the end their heart knew the truth eventually source up.

Ones will never dies is when the ideas is become ideal to many people there always person who holds and spread it.

Who could judge wich more precious civilization but put you in to slave of other idea.

Or liberate yourself to founding civilization within your identity and culture, we're humans bound to be free from what enslaved us.

Good patriotism drama:thumbsup:
