And btw this weekend, I saw an ig post from Lee jihoon where he looks so pale and his hair is disheveled. After a couple of hours,he deleted the pic. Gosh I wonder what'll happen with him (crossing my fingers his character won't die)

 

Maybe Min gets smallpox :(  It was so ridiculously brave of Min to go along on the expedition :wub: I don't ship him with HR anymore, but I still love him anyway!!  

 

Loved today's episode.  I was really moved when Lee Rim got angry.  Cha Eun Woo was front and centre of this episode and I though he did a brilliant job.  I'm very disappointed in HR's brother and Sa Hui though :angry:  I also feel like everyone is out to get Mo Hwa!  Run, lady, RUN! Empress' side had better start doing some smart politicking, because it looks like everything is heavily weighted on the second minister's side!

 

Is Ho Dam a medicinal book?  I wonder if the King thinks public knowledge of medicine will lessen his importance because then nobody will need royal rituals, so that's why Ho Dam was banned, and Mo Hwa was made public enemy number 1.  They do talk about the importance of royal rituals a lot!  But then... it isn't clear what it has to do with Prince Dowon.  I thought it looked like Prince Dowon recognised Mo Hwa at the end actually, what do you guys think?

I'm curious about that too because we know Ho Dam was a real person because of the gravestone. But didn't the deposed king take an interest in Mo-hwa? So maybe he was learning about the western world from her? But the cp seemed he didn't want LR to read it. I'm so confused lol. I guess well know more tomorrow.

 

I thought Eunwoo did a good job moving between his childish and naive character to a more mature and angry one. I can't wait for tomorrow to see him lead by example and get the vaccine. I'm not sure what Prince Dowon's relationship to Mo-hwa is but isnt she married to Sam-bo so its possible they've seen each other before. Although a theory going around is thats his mother.

 

I'm curious as to why the second state councilor wants to get rid of him. Is he the person behind the coup and the now king was influenced and poisoned by him? 

 

Im really happy with how the show is progressing.

Is the drama 16 or 20 episodes?

 

It's 20 hours. :D

 

As for Mohwa, I'm still hoping Haeryung's brother is somehow helping her despite ratting her out to Second State Councillor. What is his goal?

Oh things are getting meatier!!! And why am I nervous with tonight's upcoming ep? 

 

The beach scene and climbing up the mountains were so precious. But why why why was it sooo short, show? (Give us more sweet moments ok?) I feel like tonight's ep will be filled with more politcal and drama stuff. We could definitely use and savor more fluff before things get serious. 

 

My hunch is, Hodam is some sort of a medicinal guide book to cure small pox like what @cantbreathe said :) Judging by the preview, LR will get the 'vaccine' and Mohwa will soon be captured. But maybe she'll get the Hodam book across to HR ( as we can see in the preview that she has the book and wants to use it to cure the people) LR will prolly be the one to decide to implement the vaccine and HR will practice it (as she takes knowledge of the procedure from the book)

 

And maaaaybe HR's brother has a plan to rescue Mohwa since I still believe he isn't completely bad

And guuuuuys I really don't know what to feel about the ratings. Yes, I'm thankful that Rookie Historian is still number 1 but dang why are the ratings still so low only averaging on 5-6%? Also read some mean comments again on Naver despite CEW's improved acting on last night's ep. 

 

I don't know anymore but is the drama underperforming at this point? International fans like us love this drama though.

I have a feeling ratings will start going up. 5.1% is the highest rating for the show for first part on Wednesday nights so I find that encouraging. And yeah Eunwoo has haters, no matter what he does some people will never be satisfied, best to ignore them. If they're watching live I thank them for their view :D

 

Yes and international fans do like this :)

It seems like this timeslot is struggling in general at the moment, which is interesting. I'm hoping the show at least gets another personal best tomorrow. All we can do is keep our fingers crossed and give it our views on Netflix!

Like someone said upthread earlier Korean viewers are used to Arrogant, cold  Royal Alpha male Princes in Sageuks who warm up and become human thanks to the Heroine. This here is the opposite with a funny naive childish Prince  who presumably is going to grow into a commanding Royal presence so People are trying to get their heads around the twist. Haters gonna hate anything different and unique.

Ep 7 at 5.6% is actually their highest for Wednesday airing. But really crossing my fingers they hit a personal best tonight as the plot thickens. 

 

The story is actually so fresh and well-balanced. Don't really get the hate this show gets. If only Netflix views were counted for the ratings Hahaha :D

5.6% is actually Thursday :) It went up from 4.5% the night before. It keeps coming in first so haters can hate it doesn't mean people are going to stop watching or new viewers won't check it out due to good things people are saying through word of mouth :) I saw a tweet where someone was saying people in their class were saying good things about the show so it seems the people saying the bad things is the minority.

you really need to chill and just enjoy this drama. even "healer" with  ji chang wook got mediocre ratings despite launching him and park min young into international stardom and being one of the best kdramas in the last 5 yrs. i would love for it to have  2 digit ratings  but i'll keep loving and supporting this drama ,cew and ssk. i know it is going to be a very popular drama internationally because it is really good.

as for cew's acting ,haters gonna hate.  i suspect there are some anti idols who are just targeting him because of his popularity, plus his great looks and are jealous of his budding success,trust me there are so many fans that love him and we know he will keep improving .how many stars hold international fan meets ? .he has age ,his looks and talent on his side.so many great actors were bashed initially and later went on to become box office stars .i support him where and when i can but can't control everyone's opinion ,besides he has said criticism will make him work harder.

No problem :) I'm not sure what the searchlist you are referring too is so I can't say.

 

Ugh it's getting so good. Not a lot of storylines but still so much we don't know. I have seen those yet. But they'd be so cute.

I agree with you. I was thinking that Ho-Dam was the Western Doctor who came to practice at Joseon and taught several smart people including MoHwa. Perhaps.... Prince LR had blister all over his body (chicken pox or other kind of skin disease) but got cured by this Ho-Dam practice.

So Yi Rim is, maybe, the son of the late King ? The one who had been killed the King now !

so why he always dreams about the moment the late King died ????

and he's always be protected secretly by Mo Hwa  by the order of the Downager Queen ???

The more we see, the bigger is the contrast between prince DW and historian Min. LR was a novelist whose books about romance were supposed to move people's heart. LR did it out of boredom but deep down, his success and popularity made him feel as if he was alive. For GHR, these books lacked deepness. On the other hand, Min chose his profession as historian in order to escape from his father's influence and grip. If he hadn't been a historian, he would have been forced to take his father's side. But he doesn't like his father actions. That's why he sees the work as historian as a neutral and passive person. The historian is just an observant and that's it. That explains why Min never helped GHR directly and right away. In the end, his choice represents his refusal to follow his father's steps. He acts the exact opposite of what his father is doing.

 

GHR made LR realize that his writing was lacking as it was just for entertaining purpose. Nevertheless, she got aware that her critic was harsh as she didn't understand the reason why LR chose to write such novels. It was his way to feel alive and to escape from his cage. Now, it is Min's turn to realize that he is wrong. A historian is not neutral per se and he can choose a side.

 

LR is the better man (despite his innocence and childish behavior) as he always thought about people. This outlines why LR decided to do something for them. His romances were to supposed to be read by commoners and now, his actions are supposed to reach people as well. On the other hand, Min's books will never reach people, the books will be read by officials and other historians.

I loved the way LR looked when he saw HR was also going to Pyongyang! I’m going to go watch it again! 

 

I’m really reeeeeaallly hoping for more romance. I love their interactions but HR is totally friend zoning him!! :( 

 

Also, I really appreciate the way HR is written and played by SSK! Often, when they make a female character plucky and headstrong, they make her stubborn and brash - someone who is rude, gets into trouble but is actually very soft inside. I love that HR doesn’t get into childish fights with people and she isn’t reckless - she considered her fiance’s feelings when she ditched the wedding, and she didn’t take the young girl who may have smallpox no matter how awful it felt to do so. I also liked how she put Min in a tight spot by pointing out how nice he was to her to come to Pyongyang. It was done in a matter of fact way, not in a bashful way. She very mature, even if she’s a bit naive about love.

I thought this drama runs on Thurs Fri.

 

 

Oh nooooo.... GHR made a skin contact with that ill mother inside the village Hut, I'm afraid she would get infected - She better get that vaccine too I hope it's not too late. Min Ik-Pyeong method of isolating the infected patients is a smart way for that kind of era (I understand it to contain the spread) but he is inhuman by not treating them - just a saying;  what if his only son, Historian Min, got the illness..... it will be a big Karma for that old counselor Min.

 

Suspicious Pretty Sa-Hui, she knows her crooked father attitude (corrupting the food price), but she doesn't want to correct it (report it to the palace). On top of that she became a double agent to Counselor MIP:angry: - She's so ambitious, And I wish Sa Hui will fall in love with CP and CP will teach her how to become a better lady.

 

Overall, Prince LR's angry face with that voice remains sooo cute, :wub:

I think she did the vaccine when she was sick before. Down is the one who will probably get the disease if they go that route.
