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

Recommended Posts

Oh I got goosebumps from that seaweed soup tiny detail. I haven’t watched the subbed ver yet but it’s really good observation. What if Dong Joo and Nokdu were swapped at birth?

btw I don’t find the King scary at all, he might be obsessed with power but the real antagonist of the show must be Heo Yoon. 

And I’d like to know more about Cha Yul mu, they won’t waste his character like that right?

35 mins more to episodes 7 and 8. I'm so stoked for the continuation of "I am your mother....". Dong Dong Ju experiences her Luke-Skywalker moment LOL.

omg i love the ending of ep 3! it went from very serious tone, to suddenly this funny casual mode, with ND claiming he will be DJ's mum! Actually the palace scenes dont bother too much yet, because its hard to get a full picture so far. There seems to be a number of players there as well, so i'm waiting for that aha! moment when everything falls together. I'm excited for today's ep when we realy get the full on living together hijinks!

After months of lurking in this thread I finally decided to come out of the shadows and participate in the discussion hahaha hello helloooo!:D

Does anyone think that the king's child can be a girl? (Why not? There're so many princes in kdrama, why not a princess now?) Till now, it's the only reason why the king had to kill his child, or switch the babies.. or whatever. Perhaps the king just used the baby to distract Heoyoon for his own sake.  And if so, well, it's probably Dong Joo. See, the 2nd male lead (I forgot his name) made those okchundang for her, and she was served the seaweed soup in the morning, same day with Nokdu's birthday. And there must be some reason her (maybe adopted) family was massacred.

Oooooohhh interesting theory!! I like this take. I have no qualms about Nokdu becoming the crown prince if the drama really went to that direction but I must admit that it's pretty overused, so if Dongjoo did turn out to be the royal princess then it's a refreshing take on this trope. We must remember that Nokdu wanted to be a general, and if Dongjoo really did turn out to be the crown princess, then how cool is that - the crown princess and her general! Now I'm really hoping for this to happen!

awww this might be my favourite episode so far... i watched the raw without subs and there was a good mix of comedy and touching scenes. 

Spoiler

Especially the scene on the swing, embodying sad but happy memories, paired with the latest OST - this brought tears to my eyes even though there was no dialogue and only expressions. KSH (and her young actress) and JDY were perfect here. I think I sort of understand why DJ is treating YM not v nicely - he only reminds her of the past, as much as he has good intentions. That ending though, JDY's expressions were brilliant. I must say ND is quite a feminine guy despite the muscles - he's so gossipy and petty lol. 

 

This ep definitely had me both laughing (didn't even need to understand to be entertained) and teary.

I think she forced him to change in there, based on preview. And the woman is the widow he saved in ep 1 who got caught again. Not sure what happened to the servant who ran away with her

From today episode, I learn one thing abt this drama: After the almost romantic/swooning/touching/warming/peaceful moments, there're chaos and craziness. :lol:

We're fooled by this (seem-to-be-doleful) still cut.

Regarding the ending palanquin scene, it was the "restricted-age 17" scene mentioned during the script-reading session:

On episode 2 it was mentioned they were born different years, Nokdu thought DJ was older but then she clarified that she was born year of the ram.

Lol.. that's what it was? I was wondering way back when I first watched the script reading vid and then Kang Tae Oh was clapping and JDY was like, "Why are you clapping?" :D Now I know.

 

 

Yay, I can finally binge-watch the episodes then tomorrow. Am at work right now and just sneaking in to see some spoilers here :P.

 

P.S. Glad to see some people joining the Nokdu fun :blush:

I'd also just like to point this out because I don't think anybody's noticed this yet but if my eyes aren't deceiving me, look at Dong Yoon's ears during this scene, they're red!!!:lol:

Now I really want KBS to release the behind the scenes footage of this part of the episode lol, seems like JDY got really flustered while filming this hmmm^_^

Muahaha... just saw the preview for next week and it's friggin' hilarious :joy:... omg, am already dreading for next Monday ^_^

 

:lol: especially the blooming (b)romance between NokDu and YulMu. YM looked soooooo uncomfortable, and literally was running for his life. This should be fun!

Hope you can catch up on the subbed episodes soon tomorrow! But watch this at home because there is a very HUGE risk that you'll be ROFL or shouting exclamations. Why is next Monday so far away *stomps feet like Kim Kwabu-nim*

 

 

So many heartfelt scenes tonight. Sharing a screenshot under spoiler:

Spoiler

BTS wish list for this week (in random order):

1) palanquin scene

2) swing scene

3) "I am your mother" scene

No. 1 or 3 would have been crazy hilarious to film LOL
