[Drama 2019] The Joseon Romantic Comedy: Tale of Nok-Du, 조선로코: 녹두전


Recommended Posts

@kiraning Thank you for recommending drama_johaa IG. Always appreciate informative and thoughtful resources like these. So hard to come by! And she even does English translations of the BTS!

 

@Ameera Ali I seriously hope that it's only the stills that are shot in bright daylight! Dongju dressed as her male alter ego Kim Won Shik and trying to assassinate the King smells like a foolhardy move. Maybe the stills are misleading us, and she's aiming the arrow at something/someone else? #fingerscrossed #preparefortheunexpected

- THANK YOU FOR WATCHING -                                                                                    @0ly40 @50okie @aineofcebu @aisling @akausagi @alekaonu @Ameera Al

My ship is officially sailing!      The Submissive Lover ...            Lady Kim's powerful punch!       But DJ

@Sky8lue @lightbringer06 their wedding conquer the wind , like their  love conquer everything between them           

The king's body guard informs the king that yeonsoo is dead and that his real name is ND!!!!!! the king now knows that ND IS HIS SON. He is in disbelief and demands to see ND to ask him in person. King cries as he recalls his memories with ND, including the conversation at the swing, climbing up the mountain, and the time ND shed tears in front of the king. He is now angry that ND tried to fool him, and takes a sword while he tries to personally find ND.

 

Conspirators are also trying to find ND to kill him. Before the king gets to ND he is stopped by one of the consipiring ministers. Minister says some sarcastic crap and then draws his sword on the king. King runs away. He is now at a cliff.

 

Here, he finds DJ. he wonders why DJ is here and in man's clothing. DJ asks the king to throw away his sword and points her bow at the king. She demands him to answer her questions.

 

At the same time, the king's guards and convoy are looking all over for the king. 

 

Cliff: the king throws away his sword and asks DJ why she is doing this. DJ reveals her real identity. The king is shocked to find out, and then laughs and remarks sarcastically that she has lived a tough life despite her young age. The king asks if she is trying to kill him. He says, i guess that's why you approached me, just like that guy (ND).

 

ND finds DK pointing her bow at the king, at the same time evil minister spots ND. 

 

DJ says that she has waited her whole life for revenge, thinking that it will give her happiness, however, she is disappointed to find out that she has to kill someone who is not even worthy to be human. She states that the king does not believe anyone, and is just merely a shell. DJ cries as she aims at the king, shoots, and seemingly miss. Instead, she actually shot the evil minister who was trying to kill ND. DJ tells the king that she does not have to kill him. 

 

King slips at the cliff's face, DJ is shocked, the king grabs her hand. She holds on to him, however, he slips. DJ almost falls off the cliff, but is saved in time by ND. King falls off the cliff and into the river. DJ and ND stares in shock at the river before them

 

ND is back at the king's resting place. a guard asks ND if he has seen the king. ND informs he has something to say.

 

Scene flashes to ND's dad and queen, ND's dad tells the queen something bad has happened. 

 

scene: palace and YM

ND arrives with a carriage behind him. 

 

Backflash: ND informs one of the king's guard about YM's conspiracy. 


scene: palace and YM
YM approaches ND, and tells him he has worked hard. ND draws his sward at YM. ND informs he is here to stop the coup. ND's legion of guards enters the scene. AND THE PLOT THICKENS.

 

that's all from me folks

 

NEXT EP PREVIEW:

Queen hugs ND, says she is sorry. FUGGGGG ND'S DAD IS SLAYED BY ONE OF YM'S GUARDS WHILE TRYING TO SAVE ND'S BROTHER. DJ tells ND she can no longer live without him. (ok im sorry but this is all i caught while watching the really REALLY QUICK preview.)

Crew just posted this very cute clip :lol:

 

Webtoon author's + hubby's reaction to tonight's episode. Her caption says something along the lines of wanting tomorrow to come faster, but also not wanting tomorrow to come. She must be feeling conflicted like us viewers because we are approaching the finale  :bawling:

seems like most of the story will wrap up in tomorrow's episode, although i really have no idea where we are going with the coup (idk if it will be successful, because from the preview it seems like it won't be. but we all know that in history, the coup was successful. 

 

also it seems that currently no one knows if the king is dead or alive (seemingly no effort has been shown to find him after he fell off the cliff)

 

if anyone has the link to the preview pls pls pls send it here. i really want to see the preview again but i dont have the time to go and find it or the patience to refresh kbs' social media for it haha

Looking at some spoiler clips, gotta say this drama is just ah-ma-zing... I totally love the unpredictability of it. I know Nokdu is always 10 steps ahead of YM :glasses:...

 

If there's no coup, I would be happy about it actually and YM not getting the throne. He may be based in a historical figure but this is fiction after all, so I would want the writers to go that route.

If I were ND, this scene would give me trauma for yearsss.

I like it anw.

DJ is so badass today. I always feel excited whenever fm lead in action and shock the male lead LOL 

It makes me think if she met ND's foster father sooner, thing may go right for her.

She really has good relationship with her all-kind-of father-in-law :joy:

However, I feel like the story is almost done, but there're still 2 episodes left. I wonder what else would happen next. Of course, the King can not die that simple. And this drama may end before YM dethrones him. But whatever it is, just let our Dongjeon stay together, fight together and get married in the last episode. 

 

PS: I was a bit surprised when seeing the still cut. How handsome Kim So hyun :wub:. Looking at her side profile, I even thought that was jang dong yoon.

And after this ep, I just wish she'd have an action movie in the future.

@Ameera Ali   It's poetic justice for the King to 

Spoiler

die(?) from slipping and falling off the cliff... For a person who spent so many years trying to guard his precious throne by using some of the most ruthless means possible (including attempting to murder his own son), there is no more tragic way to die. I'm glad that Dongju wasn't the one to take his life. She chose to use her (last?) arrow to shoot the traitor who was about to harm Nokdu, because saving Nokdu's life meant more to her than taking revenge on the King. 

 

And in classic k-dramas, the good guys either have an unlimited number of arrows or never enough. Hollywood is guilty of this too (think Legolas in LOTR).

 

 

And finally.... the preview!

Wow, I can't believe this made me un-lurk here. But it can't be helped. I have been tempted to post here for a few weeks already. This drama is just so good! It deserves more people to praise it on the loop. :D And I am a huge drama consumer, so I fear I will be a regular visitor from now on.

 

I love JDY and KSH together. They made the story magical. Their acting is amazing.

 

What had me post here today is a feeling I have about the ending. I somehow can't imagine Nokdu not jumping down that cliff. I have a feeling he would not let the king drown. Also, the fact that he is an island guy and swimming pro... when is the better time to use it than now at this scene? And the fact they didn't show anything between the cliff and ND coming to talk to the guard... I don't know, if the king is still floating in that water, I think that's a great plot hole.

 

That said, I am so hyped for tomorrow! I don't think they are really going to air two episodes, but if they do, I am going to jump from the excitement.

Why do I feel like the King willingly let go of his hand when DJ grabbed his hand... still don't like him. BUT if at that moment, if the thought of seeing DJ extending her hand to him despite the tough life she's gone through made him regret everything he's done, then I may forgive him. Forgiveness is always at the top of my vocabulary anyway, so :)...

 

 

Uri Prince Nokdu looking FINE in the ending scene :wub:

@dramaonion I'm glad you decided to unlurk^^.. you should have done so earlier.. haha.. but yeah, welcome and join us for the remaining episodes of this brilliant drama :)

I agree. Tomorrow's ep will probably show what happened to the King. I don't think he just died there. Usually if it's nearing the end of the episode, there are some scenes not shown which they'll show in the beginning of the next or through a flashback.
