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

Recommended Posts

Are we really calling that a kiss? Wasn't it just a peck? She pulled back so fast I don't think it was meant to be either romantic or swoony. The whole thing was just a set up so kang tae oh could walk in on a half naked jang dong yoon. Not that I mind. Any reason for a shirtless jang dong yoon is a good plot. I've only seen kim so hyun kiss in love alarm and that was pretty good for a kdrama kiss. I don't think the type of kissing depends on the actor since they only do what the director wants them to do. Lee min ho is a pretty hot kisser but his kiss scenes in heirs were horrible but then again it was a drama set in high school so context. I have expectations for a hot kiss from this drama with all the nakedness they've been blessing us with.

Radio was really romantic drama with sweet kisses, but its  not passion... hot kiss was in Clean with Passion that is what I call hot kiss  and I think two actresses is the same age right? So hope here So Hyun  shows the same... 

 

in ruler it looks like So Hyun is about to get eaten alive haha

Another angle of the epic I-would-rather-free-fall-into-the-pond-than-grab-your-hand scene (from IG of KTO's manager, I think):

How does Dong Joo resist this:

Maybe KSH is having such a ball of a time laughing at Nokdu-Yulmu couple because it's not her turn yet. She'll probably get all flustered when it's her turn to film the kiss scene :lol: We need the BTS of the ending kiss scene, but think we might only get that next week (otherwise there may be spoilers for the follow-up scene). Thinking about it again, how come Yulmu can waltz into the Widow's Village so easily? By right the entrance should be guarded by everyone's favourite Virtuous Women Corps trio. I wonder if it'll be better if Hwa Su (Dong Joo's best friend in the Gisaeng House) walked in on them instead (in the webtoon, Hwa Su gets in on the secret quite early on). Since Yulmu is a newly-created character, I wonder what they have in store for him. Arrghh....why can't Monday come sooner!

And the most important is, like @lightbringer06 said, it's the situation when the kiss happen.

That's why I was so excited for the kiss in confession scene between ND and DJ. It was needed when her mind said no, but her body said ok. :rolleyes: 

 

Moonlight shared the same problem. As I know, Moonlight writers also in this TTON. And I'm still afraid it can happen again here. (especially when DJ also aims to kill the king).

 

Abt our OTP,  I guess there'll be a kiss next ep when DJ gets angry and hit ND with the dipper. It's gonna be a long and hard time for ND courting DJ :phew:

 

I'm glad we share the same perspective :). Idk about others, but that's how I see it :)

 

About Moonlight, I did enjoy that one. But I agree it got quite heavy in the second half with all the political stuff going on and the stupid reason of the OTP splitting up and some unnecessary plots. But overall, I liked it. Koreans seems to like heavy dramas, I guess, because the ratings of Moonlight spiked during the 2nd half, while most of us international audience enjor rather the light and fun ones. Still quite positive though that even though they added some tweaks here and there in this drama TTON, that the light/fun aspect of it stays and remains true to the original material.

 

The scene before DJ hits ND with the dipper as I posted from the previous pages is this...

20191016-184753.gif She probably got flustered again and in denial of her feelings so she resorted to violence... HAHA... and thus...

20191016-184854.gif But I like your idea of another kiss.. hehe... since I know we all wanted that uninterrupted kiss :joy:.

 

 

On the other hand, I really admire JDY's professionalism during the kiss scene BTS, also KTO. They talk about it like nothing^^. Prior to JDY's debut as an actor, he said he never imagined being an actor. But he was meant to be one. So I am so happy for him to finally land a leading role in this. He really is a fun person in real life. And I suddenly remember KSH and JDY's photoshoot for this drama where they were shooting a swing scene, and a staff said, "you look like you're about to kiss". And not sure if JDY said "should we" or something along that line, teasing KSH :)

They're at the gisaeng house not the widow village from what I can tell. He waltzed in during the kiss scene because I assume he found out she wasn't a she and living with the love of his life. The scene where he falls into the water is epic. I want every making film they have for that scene. It'll never not be funny.

 I've not seen this drama but he looks like he's gonna break her neck. Not the hot kiss I would aim for. Give me something like oh hae young or bride of the water god hot kiss.

When the Camellia Blooms supporting TTON :joy:...

 

 

 

I still don't know what to make of Yulmu. He is such a mystery. He's even powerful than that father-in-law that was arrested, even though the real Lady Kim said to him that some people in the government is in cahoots with the father-in-law, yet he managed to get him arrested. And he looks kinda scary to me in the preview for eps 11-12 when he barged into DJ's room and it was all dark. He knows he couldn't just leisurely walk into the village as a man, but why the heck was  he there? And during nighttime even.

I thought they were in their ownroom/house (because NokDu went to wash up). I think everyone is away at the mountains for the Dano festival which is why NokDu dared to walk back to his room half naked.

 

But yes I'm hoping they release another bts for the falling into the pond scene!

This KBS interview was so funny.

Even the men screamed when Nokdo walked into the men's bathroom wearing hanbok.:joy:

And JDY actually likes getting attention. He did get alot of our attention during the BTS of the kiss scene.

Look at KTO's aegyo, he looks so flustered doing it.

Oh yes I forgot about the Dan-O festival and for sure our fave trio will be off duty. If Yulmu can actually saunter into the Widow's Village when he wants to (as hinted in the teaser, not confirmed that he did) is perhaps a sign of his very powerful background that we haven't uncovered yet. How close is his family to the King or top ministers, I wonder.

 

Hwang Tae gets a lot more screen time in the webtoon, so I'm wondering if we'll get to see more of Hwang Tae in the upcoming episodes. At the moment, he feels like a much smaller supporting character. Hope they make full use of his character in the drama.

 

They are starting to look like twins LOL. Hope the full version of the radio show gets subbed!

I wrote my comment poorly. The kiss scene between yul mu and nokdu happened at the gisaeng house and all the other times they've interacted was also at the gisaeng house. The reason I believe he was able to waltz in so easily was as you said because of dano and then because it was plot setup. He and of course we needed to see half naked jang dong yoon.

I agree that Ruler has the most beautiful kiss scene in saeguk drama, when female lead saved male lead from the water. It was not just the kiss itself, but the camera angle, lighting and position between two actors. And the most important is, like @lightbringer06 said, it's the situation when the kiss happen.

That's why I was so excited for the kiss in confession scene between ND and DJ. It was needed when her mind said no, but her body said ok. :rolleyes: 

I'm watching drama for entertain and dont hope for an excellent plot. But as audience, I hope for something worth. KSH's Ruler had the worst plot I've ever seen, they couldnt balance the romance and political game and they weakened the female lead, made her totally useless. That's traumatic, since I'm KSH fan. Moonlight shared the same problem. As I know, Moonlight writers also in this TTON. And I'm still afraid it can happen again here. (especially when DJ also aims to kill the king) Actually, I think DJ was quite passive in the recent episode compared to her dynamic characteristic before. For ex, her drunken habit was out of highlight due to the boy-boy kiss (I'm not annoyed with boy-boy thing but in this scene, I see no need, it's just for shocking)  

Abt our OTP,  I guess there'll be a kiss next ep when DJ gets angry and hit ND with the dipper. It's gonna be a long and hard time for ND courting DJ :phew:

 

OMG... dont even start about ruler plot...dont start. We might start a war talking about how derailed the plot was from start to end. Honestly, I kept watching it for the love of both the lead. *small site note: I a shyshyshipper too

 

That is why I am rooting so hard for this drama. KSY always give everything for her character. I think almost everyone can acknowledge her acting ability. She just need a quality drama that also popular to solidi-zed her status. (not that she's not popular or unrecognized, just need a bit more....)

Are we talking about So Hyun's kissing skills or YSH's? :lol: This guy since 18 was very hot kisser  and  in Ruler too, 

But  Its not So Hyun's case... I need to see Love Alarm because I didnt see her there.

Yeah I'm not going to call that a great kiss because it literally looks like he's assaulting her. Flashback to that awful closet kiss from heirs which I would rather not remember. If she was underage when she did this kiss that makes it much worse. A good kiss scene is when both actors are equally involved in it and no one is underage hopefully. Not that I'm obsessed with kiss scenes when there is so much naked jang dong yoon to keep me satisfied. Fight my way had great kiss scenes where no one looked like they were being assaulted so I'll put my faith in that. Love alarm was basically camera angles but that kiss scene was satisfactorily hot.

KSH is 20 right? so she is really not that young anymore.. kissing is not the same as doing the deed right.. so technically it's oke for her to have a passionate make out session with JDY... 

I absolutely adore KSH and she was/ is one of my favorite actresses but i have to say that her kisses do disappoint me as i like passionate hot kisses and she is more a dead fish or corpse kind of kisser.. I hope that the director wants the same and that maybe JDY can guide KSH so they can have a really hot passionate kiss later on in the show...

I may sound like a pervert but...

Spoiler

i actually find it so strange because in the western countries or at least where i live ppl start doing the deed as early as 14 years old.. in Korea from what i have heard and seen ppl start around 17/18 years old.. so it is not that strange that ppl around KSH age have had s*x.. so why wouldn't they show a sleeping scene.. like they don't have to show them actually doing it but more like the beginning and later when they are "finished"

HAHAHA.... I love the fact that although we haven't seen how JDY's kissing skills are despite lacking kiss scenes in his dramas, compared to KSH who's had lots already, we are still counting on him to guide her well :joy:. I think we also need to count on the director to guide them just like in Fight for My Way, Idk other dramas he directed with kiss scenes so not sure how he deals with it usually. But hopefully he will :wub:
