Hye-Jin and Jung-Rok  met Jung Ka-Ik in Joseon. I wonder when she will realise that her fiancee is a psychopath ?


From the stills it looks like Jung-Rok will work at the palace. :D I miss seing him as an archer.

Hello lovelies.... Wave to dear @larus @Lawyerh @nohamahamoud2002 @phoenix24 & @jinkzzmec chingus here!


I was really hesitating to watch this series as I found youtube clips a bit messy & no proper eng sub provided... but I think I should watch it for Kang JI Hwan oppa! :) He seems to work real hard for his character & the eng subs are also online...! So must watch this!!!


And how about so far..???! I am curious over your ideas here... :wub:


Have a nice day :heart:

 I like it. It`s funny and easy to watch.

The time travel genre is not easy to do. Some dramas works, others don`t. It is not complicated this time. For Han Jung Rok`s sister will be harder because she will fall in love with a real character who must remain in the past. The protagonists and Seul-Ki must survive all the events and find a way for all to get home. I think that our modern heroes will have influence over Joseon characters but they will grow as peoples as well because all the hardship. I will enjoy watching this.

hihi @gm4queen I was wondering why you were so quiet and was getting worried.  I thought you at least watch 1-2 episodes like heidi.  I definitely think you should check it out because oppa is working hard.  I'm not sure about 1st lead romance as many mentioned, but the 2nd lead romance is so cute, bromance, and sibling relationship all makes it worth giving it a go.

In ep 7, that governor made me laugh with his comment. He compared Hye Jin and Jung Ka Ik with Romeo and Juliet.

He knew about Romeo and Juliet? :w00t: or it was just a translation thing?

He said that Joseon monk and Ming Dinasty physician have to choose love for each other or loyalty for their countries. WOW, he had some empathy left in him? :)


The second funny line... When Jung Ka Ik brought Sung Rok and told him that he is not at his level. I think Sung Rok he gave him a very strong reply and I like how he told him in the end that he doesn`t see an aura but an evil spirit. :lol:

These two men will compete to show who is the knight in shining armor to Hye Jin.


It was funny when Sung Rok pretended to talked on the phone with Hye Jin and when she responded to his question he thought for a moment that he has WI Fi. :lol:

Update: Seo Ji Suk Confirmed To Replace Kang Ji Hwan In “Joseon Survival”

by U. Kim

“Joseon Survival” has confirmed that Seo Ji Suk will be taking on Kang Ji Hwan’s role in the drama.

On July 15, Huayi Brothers Korea released the following statement:

Hello. This is Huayi Brothers Korea, the production company for TV Chosun’s “Joseon Survival.”

This is our statement on the casting and broadcasting schedule of “Joseon Survival.”

We announce that actor Seo Ji Suk was confirmed to join [the drama] in the role of the main character Han Jung Rok.

After finalizing the casting, “Joseon Survival” will begin filming as soon as possible, and we will resume airing episode 11 starting next Saturday (July 27).

Once again, we ask everyone who has waited for “Joseon Survival” for their understanding, and we will do our best to meet the viewers’ needs by creating a well-made drama until the end.




I am glad they find an actor for Han Jung-Rok role. I did not see Seo Ji Suk in anything but I think he will do well with the role. I read that he was an athlete when he was young, he was selected to prepare for the national team but an accident (he was hit by a car while  crossing the street) ruined his sport career.  Good luck for him and Joseon Survival team!
