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


Recommended Posts

I'm so happy with the ending! :relieved: I think everyone got what they deserve, our cute DongJeon couple together and sharing amazing lovey dovey moments, that plot twist about the 19Nov birthday I was O.O I think to know that was more than enough punishment for the king, he could have enjoyed the affection of a loving and devoted son and wife, but he waste his life with his fears and neurotic obsession with the throne (even thou he knew ND was safe, and he was happy for it :tears:). YM got the throne, but he remains alone not even Danho by his side lol 

The Queen reunited with ND and DJ was a must! <3 and all the other characters in the new village! 

Oh gosh... I'm gonna miss all so freaking much!!! :tears:

Thanks to THE TALE OF NOKDU drama family!!! Thanks for your hard work. I'll miss you so much huhuhuhu

@Ameera Ali  Thanks for posting all the hilarious and sweet gifs. And thanks, dear chingu, for tagging me too! I will miss everyone in this thread. But won't say goodbye yet, because KBS still owes us the final BTS, and not to forget the year-end KBS Drama Awards!

 

By the way, look who locked the door this time:

 

 

From the IG story of Park Min Jung (@pinggooooo) aka the lovely Queen. Good view of her overexcited, loud son 'Nokdu' watching the broadcast with everyone at the wrap party :lol:

 

I wish the ratings could have peaked more for episode 32, because the drama production deserved it.

 

The story of Nokdu and Dongju doesn't end here, because we KNOW that these two beautiful souls will continue their journey together hand-in-hand. Happily. Ever. After.

A very BIG THANK YOU to all who spoilt us with live recaps, loads of twitter & instagram links, etc :wub:

I have definitely not moved on from the show yet ... been searching youtube for all the possible latest FMV, links, and anything related to TTON.

 

There are so many dramas that started out strong but faltered midway and ended bad. TTON has been so wonderful from start to end (even the angst period was justified and good). It is one of the few shows where all the side characters matter, they were never boring nor were they there just to be nonsensical fillers. Not once did i feel the urge to use the fast forward button  (for some shows, i have my finger ready at the FFW button)

 

I'm a bit disappointed that i can't find any selfie of our lovebirds... in my delulu mind, i convinced myself that they do not want their overflowing love for each other to be too obvious :sweatingbullets:

 @lightbringer06  Awww.... once a friend in TTON Soompi thread, always a Soompi friend :) And I always look forward to your thoughtful posts and updates! By the way, by "this Chinese drama I've been waiting for two years", do you mean:

Spoiler

Three Lives, Three Worlds, the Pillow Book?

 

The cake above is so lovely. I hope we get more interviews from the cast in the days to come! Soohyang (the one and only Ssook) needs to be cast in an action flick pronto!

@Ameera Ali  Life is indeed hard post-TTON. We'll survive better if KBS feeds us with some BTS. The cast were so busy filming, they didn't even have spare time to go on many talk shows or variety shows to promote the drama.

Jang Dong Yoon Talks About His Chemistry And Kiss Scenes With Kim So Hyun

 

Jang Dong Yoon Talks About His Chemistry And Kiss Scenes With Kim So Hyun

 

Actor Jang Dong Yoon talked about his chemistry with Kim So Hyun on “The Tale of Nokdu”!

Jang Dong Yoon debuted in NaverTV’s Web Drama “Game Development Girls” in 2016 and went on to appear in JTBC’s “Solomon’s Perjury,” KBS2’s “School 2017,” tvN’s “A Poem a Day,” tvN’s “Mr. Sunshine,” and KBS2’s “Just Dance.” He gained the most attention through his most recent project, KBS2’s “The Tale of Nokdu.”

The drama is a fun and romantic comedy set in the Joseon Dynasty about a man who dresses as a woman to enter a mysterious, women-only village, and a gisaeng-in-training, Dong Dong Joo, who doesn’t want to become a gisaeng (female courtesan). Jang Dong Yoon received praise for his portrayal of Jeon Nok Du, who dresses as a woman to discover the truth behind his birth and fights for power.

On November 26 at a cafe in Gangnam, Jang Dong Yoon had an interview about the finale of “The Tale of Nokdu” and talked about his chemistry with Kim So Hyun, which was well received by viewers.

Jang Dong Yoon said, “Other than my official fan cafe, I try not to read the public’s reaction. But I could sense the great love it was receiving through the fan cafe. At the set, I was very comfortable acting with Kim So Hyun. We worked well together so many people on set talked about it. They would say, ‘If this scene is aired, it will be really good.’ The director also said, ‘What you just did right now looked natural and good.’ I think meeting the cast two months before shooting to read the script together gave us time to get comfortable and get close with each other. It made a huge difference. Of course, I think having a personal bond helped me when I was filming and acting, and I think I will continue to have those thoughts when I act.”

This was Jang Dong Yoon’s first historical drama, but Kim So Hyun is known as a queen of historical dramas. When asked if he was given any advice, he responded, “She was being considerate and didn’t give advice. I had to ask her, ‘Please give me advice.’ It’s about caring and respecting each other. Because there were more love scenes than historical scenes that required advice, there were more moments where Dong Joo fell for Nokdu.”

“There were a lot of things that made it easier for me to act,” he went on to say. “For example, there were scenes where we would have to look at each other with affection while we cried and she would tell me, ‘Do whatever makes you comfortable,’ and ask me, ‘What should I do?’ She even advised me by saying, ‘I think it would be better if you could make my heart race a bit more,’ and we were respectful while helping each other. Because actors are cautious, they are sensitive to comments on their acting. She was very careful about that and helped me while being caring. She’s younger than me, but because she began acting at such a young age, I felt her wisdom. When I talk to her, she seems like a 21-year-old, but when she acts, she’s different. She is always relaxed so I have a lot to learn from her. She acted so comfortably.”

When discussing his kiss scenes with Kang Tae Oh and Kim So Hyun, Jang Dong Yoon said, “The episodes I looked forward to were episodes 9 and 10. The first kiss scene happened at the end and it was where I took my top off and confessed. I thought it would be very fun and I was very motivated, and I even thought it went well during rehearsal, but right when we started filming, I couldn’t do it. We had to get several shots at different angles so it was very uncomfortable. It was also the first time I kissed a man, so I couldn’t get used to it. And we joked around a lot.”

He continued, “It’s safe to say that it was the first of the many kiss scenes with Kim So Hyun. It wasn’t like it wasn’t there before, but before people would say we look like siblings, so it was easier to do it. We would say it’s part of the job and to make it look good, so it was easier when it came to screening and acting.”

The last episode successfully ended with a viewership rating of 7.3 percent. Jang Dong Yoon is taking a break after completing “The Tale of Nokdu” while reviewing his next project.

Jang Dong Yoon Describes Preparations For âThe Tale Of Nokduâ + Portraying A Man Disguised As A Woman

 

Jang Dong Yoon Describes Preparations For “The Tale Of Nokdu” + Portraying A Man Disguised As A Woman

 

 

Jang Dong Yoon shared his thoughts on his latest drama “The Tale of Nokdu,” which aired its final episode on November 25.

The romantic comedy told the story of Jeon Nok Du (played by Jang Dong Yoon), who disguised himself as a woman in order to enter a mysterious all-female community, and Dong Dong Joo (played by Kim So Hyun), who didn’t want to become a gisaeng (female courtesan).

Speaking about the drama coming to an end, Jang Dong Yoon said, “It was hectic because I filmed until the very end, so I think it’ll linger with me that much longer. It doesn’t feel real right now.”

Through “The Tale of Nokdu,” the actor was able to prove his knack for action scenes. “I really wanted to try acting in action scenes,” he said. “But since I played many student roles, I couldn’t do them often. I’m extroverted and like to exercise. I prepared a lot and basically lived at the action school.”

He continued, “The peak of my acting in action scenes was probably the island action scene in the first episode. We had some extra time, so we filmed it in one-take without a stand-in. After seeing the result, I became more ambitious about action scenes.”

Jang Dong Yoon appeared leaner in this drama compared to his previous roles. He explained, “I wanted to do a better job in action scenes appearance-wise as well. I reduced my body fat percentage to 3 percent through diet and aerobic exercise. I wanted to slowly bulk up afterward, but the director said, ‘I think a sleek image fits Nokdu well.'”

The actor received praise for his realistic transformation into a woman, where he showed a different kind of portrayal from previous onscreen male characters who dressed up as women in the past. Jang Dong Yoon commented, “Since it was a shocking topic, I wanted to avoid things that were trite. In order to portray widow Kim, I tried to do something different from the past. I think I played a part in breaking pre-existing stereotypes and prejudices about male characters dressed up as women. I am also a fan of widow Kim.”

Jang Dong Yoon also gained attention for the tone of his voice after transforming into widow Kim, which made it difficult to tell if he was a man or a woman. He explained, “I thought that women also had various tones such as high-tone and mid-tone.”

As for his beautiful facial features that contributed to his portrayal of a woman and earned praise from viewers, Jang Dong Yoon said, “I actually had a complex in the past about wanting to have a face with big, bold features. But I think that having a face with big, bold features wouldn’t have fit well with playing a woman. I realized that my past insecurity could be used as a strength.”

When asked about the difficulty of playing two roles, he answered, “It was okay because the Nok Du who disguised himself as a woman and the Nok Du who was a man were the same Jeon Nok Du and not two different personalities of one character.”

Thank you all for the tags, the recaps and sharing of love for this drama. I honestly don’t like watching period dramas anymore but this one has been so refreshing (some parts were lacking but overall, the pace, story and character development were generally better than many k-dramas I’ve seen). I love the leads and look forward to seeing their growth in their acting skills. The last episode was super sweet - one of the nicest romantic scenes I’ve seen in a while. Till we meet again in another thread! ;)

In retrospect, crossing paths with this drama felt like a beautiful serendipity. I remembered being so charmed by jang dong yoon’s beautiful individual poster that I decided to give this drama a try. How come he’s so pretty for someone who disguises himself as a woman? :D:relaxed: That was my initial reaction.  I never knew him not until Tale of Nokdu. I have lost fascination with Korean dramas years ago but Tale of Nokdu brings back the spark that had worn away.

 

I have grown too attached to the series that it was hard to say goodbye.I have learned to love not only Nokdu and Dong ju but everyone in the series except ofcourse the spiteful king lol.

 

I was supposed to have a month break before checking the last episode because I was afraid I’ll be disappointed only. Five days of not knowing any updates, my life felt dry hahaha so yeah I didn’t  keep my word. Seriously, I’m crying bucket of tears while reading your updates guys because the ending is just so magnificently tailored. Kudos to the writer and all the staff! The production really deserved a big round of applause from us viewers.

 

I can’t contain my happiness for our couple. They are super adorable together! My heart is so full seeing  those kisses and smooches! Probably the best one for me was the beach scene when Dong Ju exhilaratingly scampered towards the shore where Nok du was and he scooped her up then showered her with smooches because they just missed each other so much after being separated for 4 days.  Nok du’s lips are so squishy and kissable like a charming duck when pouting to kiss dong ju haha. It’s so funny that they can’t bear to be away from each other even for a few days. They are extra clingy to each other particularly Nokdu hahaha. ’The scene was so sweet and idyllic that my heart was about to burst. I was a giggling mess during that part.

The drama ends so I am officially dramaless now.

Also, I badly want to avail the blueray disc but it’s too pricey for me. Is there any other way? DVD maybe would be less pricey??
