The writer didn’t know who she wanted to get a girl, so she waited to see audience’s reaction. It turned out people thought the other guy was more suitable for a female lead so in order to make that guy shine the writer turned Jang Dong Yoon’s character into a huge jerk. 
 

Obviously fans were pissed and there was this nasty shipping war. I think the writer really wronged JDY too. Thank goodness he’s a such talented actor who managed to land a leading role even after that fiasco.

 

 

I never actually watched any JDY dramas except bits and pieces of School 2017, but when I know he's a 2nd lead there, didn't manage to finish it. And I've been reading lots of comments about his performance in A Poem A Day and his acting prowess. And now, I got to see it here in this drama. I know he was also in Mr. Sunshine.

I love JDY's character in that drama... and once his character changed inconsistently I dropped the drama..  LOL

 

But for me, I'm glad he's taking Nokdu's role.. JDY is so beautiful

 

Totally agree~ can't imagine anyone who can pull of Nokdu :D. He's now already on my actors list^^. I looked up some info about him and so glad he already served in the army so no 2 years waiting for him.. ha ha...

 

 

And speaking of those still cuts too, I agree to most of you, I've been burned by the previous still cuts they released last week, you know, that palanquin scene, and I didn't expect the ending of that episode!... HAHA... so I don't think I can say much about it just by looking at the pics coz it can be deceiving at times.

 

 I saw some comments on Twitter that there's a sports game again on Tuesday, but KBS better not delay my TTON again... or else...^---^

 

Oh yeah!!! It's Monday now my time here..

I am coming out of my cave. This pretty -manly-i-dont-know-how-to-define-him lad is the culprit. How does being manly and beautiful pretty merged at the same time in one face. HOW can Nokdu insult us this way ?  :bawling:

@LyraYoo @Ameera Ali

That's just the struggle of my life... because then they gave us this, SO early in the drama. And I'm like "WHERE do you want to take this?" and "HOW are you going to resolve that whole cliffhanger?".

For me I was wondering first time I watch it :joy: where is this bathroom, I thought there home is only one room , so this widow village they must sleep so early, for  him to walk half naked like this  :joy: 

But love he kissed her maybe to answer her back , when she told him who would like someone dress like woman , the joke on her now :joy: she kind responded to his kiss but how would she denied her feeling now  , run away maybe :(

@LyraYoo Hello friend, we meet again. It’s been quite a long time :) I’ve been on a k-drama hiatus for 10 months but thanks to Nokdu I can feel giddy again, it feels like coming home once again LOL. He’s just spectacular in this role, isn’t he? 

@lightbringer06 I don’t know if it’s true but it seems like JDY didn’t even plan to be an actor. He became popular because he helped to catch a thief in a store and was even awarded for it. The viewers were so stunned by his good looks and he decided to become an actor.

That is true. If you've watched their Entertainment Weekly interview, it was mentioned there. It's how he debuted^^. Although he didn't plan to become an actor, I think it was meant for him to be because just in 4 years, his acting range is really something :D. Here's that interview...

The GIF is from a drama called A Poem A Day (or You Who Forgot Poetry). It actually has a really endearing female lead and I liked the first half immensely but they pretty screwed up the second half.

Yikes. Then maybe I'll put it on hold. Nokdu is enough to satisfy me with jang dongyoon and kim sohyun going for all that skinship, bare bodied torsos, googly eyes, female assassins and potential bed scene. I won't forgive kbs if they cancel yet another episode this week on short notice.

Makes perfect sense to me. Who else could possibly play nokdu.

Just purely for research purposes... he worked hard for those abs, his body was less defined last year.
