Is this forum not active anymore? I'm missing reminiscing about tale of nokdu and naked dongyoon, bed scene jokes. 

Seems many people have moved on to other drama threads and TTON fandom is more active in twitter and instagram? It will probably get more active towards KBS Drama Awards 2019. KBS isn't doing very much to hype up the awards show this year. Jang Dong Yoon is one of the hosts at the KBS Entertainment Awards 2019 happening this weekend, so maybe Nokdu or Lady Kim's long awaited return to the small screen will happen.

@petunia, i'm also having a hard time moving on or letting go of this drama. Have been coming back to look for updates but there is not much here. Have been watching all the OST and FMV on youtube too. You can find quite a few updates in instagram & twitter :)

Sadly there isn't much here on this forum but the shipping forum has some delightful videos. I'm thinking if I should post them here too. Maybe it'll brighten up this forum. 

 

While I'm here can I just went my frustrations with kbs? This might be just my opinion but I think they did bare minimum to promote tale of nokdu and now they won't even announce their nominations. Very frustrating.

I have the same complaints! There's really not much promotion being done, though part of it is possibly due to the cast having a very tight filming schedule (especially towards the end). Now that the drama is over, it's even harder to expect promotions to continue. Most of the cast are busy with new projects (Han Garim is busy filming a 120-episode weekday drama, Jang Dong Yoon will start filming for his new movie...)

Well you're right life continues to move on but in my opinion kbs could have done a lot more. They've literally slept on their promotions could be why the ratings looked like they did. At least they're getting the love online they deserve it.

What a good ending drama - I wish some of the humour that really made me laugh the first episodes would have carried on in the later episodes. i.e Kim So Hyun trying to apply herbs to Nokdu's bum when they got burnt in the widow's village. I understand of course the darker changes in tone though.

 

The little girl was not cute and tbh very cringe annoying but oh well. Only other criticism is that the two protagonist's love story was at times very repetitive and all those scenes of them not telling each other the truth, could have been replaced by scenes of other characters.  

 

I really liked the ending because I half expected Nokdu to take the crown in that last fight. By having Nokdu return instead as a normal person to his island with Kim So Hyun, the show made a far more impacting message in my opinion about how useless power is without love.

I was happy he didn't decide to take the crown because it wouldn't have been very nokdu like to rule as a king. Your analysis is spot on being surrounded by love over empty power.

What is this? Finally when kbs put a teaser for the drama awards they only gave 2 secs to tale of nokdu. I think it'll be best to keep my expectations low for the awards. 

 

 

But from what they show only Tale of Nokdu is a sageuk drama.I think it's a good sign ;)

Isn't tale of nokdu the only historical drama kbs had this year? I might be remembering it wrong but I think they only had the one historical drama.

"Life is never easy, and it is not supposed to be. But whatever challenges it throws our way, we only have the power to change it and live through it. The choices we make are the ones affecting and influencing our existence. The contentment that we seek can only be made possible if we learn and choose to accept that we could not have it all. The Tale of Nokdu just showed us, in manner, that is convincing and so true."

Less than 3 days to the KBS Drama Awards 2019!!!

Everyone is being clingy about TTON...

 

From the webtoon author~

To the producer~

(Flip to the short but funny BTS video clip where the PD demonstrates how Dongju should jump into Nokdu's embrace at the beach reunion scene...)

To the Queen (actress Park Min Jung)~
