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 

 

I already am...lol.. am just a few mins in and I'm LMAO :joy:. I just need to contain my laugh while at work... aigoo... cannot concentrate. 

 

Agree with your BTS list... I mean, everything that has JDY-KSH funny and sweet scenes ^-^...

Hi everyone!

 

I'm new to this thread. Started watching this drama and I couldn't stop laughing at Nokdu being a woman. Now I'm addicted and very looking forward to how this drama is going to turn out. Hope to enjoy it all with you guys. :D

 Hahaha...the palanquin scene...

That was a really nice Titanic shot...  

When Nokdu's hand was sliding down the window. :D

Nok-du facial expression at the ending, into the palanquin, was absolutely priceless. I've laughed a whole minute, even watching raw. And the next episode seems to be even funnier. How long is a week!

 

Like my avatar shows, I started to watch ToND because of my beloved Kim So-hyun. But I think I'm starting to fall for Jang Dong-yoon :sweatingbullets:. I can't believe it's the same actor that Asianwiki shows in his profile (check it: http://asianwiki.com/Jang_Dong-Yoon ).

Ugh.. why the drop in the ratings though. I don't get it. I know ratings don't matter to me, but like I really just want this drama to do well in Korea.

Episode 4: Ratings Decrease :( This is so wack esp since ep 3 & 4 was way better than last week. Keep your chin up Tales of Nokdu staff & cast members.

 

EP 5: 5.8%

EP6: 6.7%

Me neither :( It must be so discouraging for the Tale of Nokdu team. Ratings doesnt automatically translate quality but good ratings is important for the drama & network to make money. So many decent shows in 2019 and few did well. I'm flabbergasted.

Ikr... if only us international viewers can contribute a little bit in terms of ratings. Well, there's 12 eps more, and I'm praying for the increase more in ratings and hit double-digit. Yeah, let's get it! Just hope that the cast and crew won't get affected too much by it and just continue doing their best in delivering this rare gem to us :D

Right now, eventhough SBS does not put any dramas for the same time slot, they are airing their variey shows and we all know how much Korean love it. And last night is the new episode of Invincible Youth, they got the highest rating last night replacing Little Forest that only got around 3-4% before this.

 

I'm glad that TTON really doing a great jobs delivering gem to us and i hope they know it ..

 

I read some comments from Knetz that want the percentage to increase too...

So that's the reason why. I was wondering what could have caused the drop since I know there's only two drama rivals in the same time slot. So there's a new variety. I did read Little Forest aired its final ep Monday. Probably people were curious about the new show so some tuned in. 

 

 But glad to know Knetz feel the same way too. Even their feedback has been quite positive since the premiere.

Yup, TTON is just 6% with the remaining another 94% that consist all channel choices from sports, dramas, variety shows, products, singing programs, news etc :D

 

Let's hope for another good ratings next week... Off to watch TTON with subtitles now... :wub:

Hi, can someone explain the significance of the gold frog that Nokdu gave the head godsend?  I didn’t really get that.

I'm not sure about the significance of that gold frog,  but if I'm not mistaken, Nokdu got the gold frog in episode 1 or 2 after helping the couple that run away from the girl's father. So, Nokdu just use the gold frog to buy/ release Dong Jo from gisaeng status.

Even though knowing the reason why the rating dropped I’m still a little bit upset since yesterday episode was very fun and heartwarming and even the next ep trailer looked awesome. Does anyone know what SBS gonna air next Monday since Invincible youth is a Tuesday show?

Just watched ep 6 in its entirety. Great episode!

 

i love how DJ and nokdu are acting like newlyweds. They went shopping to buy groceries and things to furnish “their new home.” They also divided household chores and the two chicks are their children :lol: 

 

The contract between them, on top of it being a mother-daughter contract, it’s also like a marriage contract. I love when there are contracts between the leads in dramas haha

 

it was so cute when DJ came up with excuses to go to the city where nokdu is at. 
 

I felt kinda sad for the second make lead, he bought her old family home and also he confessed his love for her... that must be a record for a second male lead to confess his feelings so early on. I wonder what’s their background story and why she made him promise to treat her like a ginseng and nothing else. 
 

I also love the female leader of the assassin gang. She gave nokdu a second chance(I’m surprised the dim-witted, silly assassin girl wanted to abide by the rules and kill nokdu lol)  and not only that when she heard nokdu was supposedly captured or in danger, she went to find him/her. She has a heart of gold despite her tough exterior. 
 

the swing scene was gloriously beautiful, so Hyun acting was phenomenal and nokdu looking at so Hyun made the heart inside my heart flutter like a tornado. I wish I had someone looked at me the same way. 
 

I really like how Dj has to resort to such silly antics to save nokdu’s skin. First it was jumping into the river, and now getting him to switch clothes with her inside that tiny palanquin haha 

 

Mondays & Tuesdays for the next two months are both a blessing and a curse. Blessing when the episode comes out, a curse when the episode ends on Tuesday : (
