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

Recommended Posts

Translation of the preview.

 

 

DJ: Are you crazy? There are all those people around, so how can you sleep here?
ND: I am crazy. Can I come in?
YM: The uprising will be in 15 days.
Minister: Since the crimes are so big, will there be much of a response?
YM: Even more than those, I know of a much more shocking secret of the king’s.
King: I asked were you certain that all were dead?
Woman: They all died!
King: I suppose we’ll know if we look into it.
HJK: Dong Joo, he came seeking you. From the palace.
King: Everything went wrong…from that night.
ND: In your memory of that night, perhaps, am I there?

 

 

The politics give the story a framework to work around, but it's still really the relationship between ND and DJ that keep me coming back. How cute is DJ telling ND he's crazy for wanting to share a bed with her, and ND admitting that he is but still asking if he can, and then DJ agrees. LOL They are still bickering and being themselves as usual, but just open, between themselves anyway, about wanting to be together. Plus, after the kiss in today's episodes, it'll be fun to see how they deal with the aftermath of that, especially since the preview indicates a comedic tone will be maintained for the romance.

I think we’ll get at least another kiss and maybe the third kiss will be steamier. But I doubt it. KSH is still finding her footing as an adult female lead while JDY has the innocent youthful aura around him - he still played a high school student last year despite being 28 Korean age. I think they’re really compatible visually, acting wise and can have this sensual chemistry when they want to. But maybe neither of them are ready to put their youthful image behind. 

Totally agree! And a too sophisticated kiss is not suitable for both characters: they indeed have never dated anyone

before:D Btw, JDY really has a youthful and even somehow naughty temperament. It will be very interesting to see his development as a young man as well as a promising actor.

@Ameera Ali @jeonghyang i want french kissing too but vaccuming is the next best one. As long as I didn’t get a statue one ;) :P From my observation of the gif, lips were moving :D

 

@lightbringer06 i have a feeling we won’t see the BTS for this kiss scene too! KBS just won’t release the ones we really want to see. Lol

@mujisano Yessss me 2 when DJ fell in my heart sank i was like nooooooo what if she gets a disease and after ND jumped in and the running in the rain.. im so worried.. ppl died of colds back in the day.. i dont know what kind of disease the village had but im sos scared for our couple

 

That reminds me.... that was a scene in the webtoon where there's a doctor examining Dong Joo and I don't know why everyone including Nokdu crowded round to wait for the doctor to deliver his diagnosis. But in the end

Spoiler

nothing serious ensues from this, far as I can remember. The webtoon has a happily ever after ending like all rom coms should end.

 

From what I can understand from her caption, webtoon author is expressing her gratitude to the cast and crew for their great efforts in this drama production. And would that drawing be of herself in front of the TV being restrained by her bespectacled husband?? She's so cute too

 

Guess what, we are at post no. 1961 in this thread now. Looks like we might hit 2000 by tomorrow :thumbsup:

hahaha awww the webtoon artist's reaction!!! Actually from the few pages that I saw of the webtoon, I thought there was a scene where dongjoo was indeed stuck in a well (or something that looked like it). Not sure how tat storyline continued but I did think maybe the writers are trying to weave in parts of the webtoon to keep the webtoon fans happy. I can't tell at all how much does follow the webtoon but at least we have a happy original artist!

Good to see you too:D. I was waiting until it's over to binge watch it but my curiosity got the better of me Imao:sweat_smile::mrgreen:. Watched the entire 9 episodes straight yesterday:skull:

 

I came for rom-com too lol. The politics part is fine as long as they minimize it:sweatingbullets:

 

Oh... haha.. you bingewatch it?..lol... I see.. that's why you never commented here^^. Now, you have to wait with us too for the upcoming eps :)

 

As long as there's still that comedic tone (and romance^^) in every episode, it's okay for me :)

I'm really gonna kill KBS if they don't release that kiss scene BTS :joy:... I swear. I wanna see how many takes it took them....HAHA... 

 

Agree, at least it's not a statue kiss ^^. Maybe the next one would be a lot sensual.. since KSH is trying to get out of that innocent/pure image she has, I think it's good for her too.

Perhaps the webtoon author is always excited just like us while watching TTON... HAHA... how cute ^^

 

And we are nearing 100 pages too. Let's get it to 200 before it ends ~!

I think they're saving all the fun scenes for a DVD of all BTS. *sigh* Saw this tweet mentioning it - https://twitter.com/NokduBD/status/1190183275337117696

It's also trending on the Chinese platform Weibo :D

Saw in Weibo - many viewers watching the livestream were typing "AHHHHHHHHHHH" during the kiss scene. I guess the viewers have been anticipating this for so long, everyone is feeling extraordinarily emotional. 

 

A 'Thank You' message from the crew to KSH and JDY for their hard work during the well scene:

It is funny how ND and DJ keep sleeping with each other. But at the same time I am not surprised DJ keeps allowing it as she has mentioned that while it was uncomfortable for her in the beginning, she realized that she was able to sleep better with him at her side. He helps keep her nightmares and demons at bay. Which is why she suggested the same thing to the king. 

ND on the other hand, really has no boundaries, particularly since he has realized he loves DJ. He went 180 from being all "men and women should not breath the same air" prissy to supper clingy and cuddly. But DJ needs that clingyness in her life with how suicidal she has been with her revenge mission. I think it is significant that she wants to die for her mother, but then here comes ND and becomes her new mother. In a way, you could say he is filling the void the loss of her mother created in her heart.

Is anyone worried about how Dongju and Nokdu could have been contaminated whilst they were in the 'contagious disease' area that was cordoned off (where the well is). If any one of them dies from a disease IMMA RIOT. I just hope it's extraneous detail that won't be referenced again later in the plot.

 

oh wow u are right!! but i guess we were all too distracted by the kiss to remember about the quarantined area HAHA. maybe a tending-the-sick-lover scene? LOL #positivethinking

About the well...

Spoiler

in the webtoon, it was actually how ND first met DJ. The well seems to be where DJ hides every time. DJ even shared some of her food to ND. There's this one scene also where ND was looking (?) for DJ and then remembered that she might be in the well... and when he went there, surprisingly, DJ was actually there. 

 

Now, idk what the conversation was when they were both there. Perhaps @Sky8lue, you might know because I know you know also about the webtoon :D.

 

 

It's nice to see how the crew appreciates both JDY and KSH's hard work. That must have been pretty difficult to film. But it did came out well. I can see that we might be getting a BTS of either that well scene or the kiss scene, or both ~ :D

 Hahaha. The point is they should not keep DJ in that well almost a day long and she even bleed. It's not just about the disease area which means the air and the artesian water may be all polluted, but also histoplasmosis or something similar when you're trapped in a cave or wet/dark/dirty area. It can cause fever, infection, even death... and may take a long time to recover. Theoretically, DJ can get terribly ill, and with that kiss, so can ND.

But I am sure with you our OTP will be OK, bcs certainly, enemies are everywhere, there's no time for sickness and no need for logic in Kdramaland -_-

 

I agree that the well is like a tribute to webtoon. I read it right in the very first chapters (but that's a dry well, that's a different thing) In the drama, I dont like the way they put that scene just to make a turning-point to the confession/kiss. I read a comment here (Sorry, I forgot who said that) they did jumping-into-the-sea, then to the spring (twice) and the river, and now a well. If we consider it as symbolism, it will be a bad sign. Like... the flows is now stuck. To solve it, we need them running to the sea once again :D

anw our cast and staff still did the best for this script. The scene is nice shot.

I cant wait for BTS of both well scene and kiss scene. But they're going make DVD/Bluray which contains documentary and BTS and PD cut... so the most wanted BTS may not be shared by KBS

*let's pray*

The hot kiss was worth the wait :) It’s always those who are suppressed that gives us the most wild and passionate kisses. The more forbidden it is, the more you want it like crazy. :P Just wait when she discovers nokdu true identity, forbidden to the max! The heart wants what it wants! DJ revenge mission mode will be like, “revenge..what revenge? Ah I’ll make you mine revenge...that’s how I’ll get back at the king by taking his son.” :lol:
