- THANK YOU FOR WATCHING -                                                                                    @0ly40 @50okie @aineofcebu @aisling @akausagi @alekaonu @Ameera Al

My ship is officially sailing!      The Submissive Lover ...            Lady Kim's powerful punch!       But DJ

@Sky8lue @lightbringer06 their wedding conquer the wind , like their  love conquer everything between them           

Havent watched the full ep with subs, but I do appreciate the attempts by the writer to try and tie storylines together with most things a consequence of what the characters chose to do - getting chased and falling into a well is linked to DJ's previous attempt to enter the palace through the gambling den - or to make things even a little different, like rather than ND having the half moon pendant all his life, it was shoved to him by Minister Heo's guard, and DJ not willing to stay captive in YM's house and told him to kill her if he wanted to control her. At the very least, she knew why he forced her to leave but isn't just going to sit there and do nothing about it. 

 

And yes for ND trying to beat the noble idiocy troupe and telling her to just let their hearts do what they want! They are alive and together now, and they never know what will happen next so they should just enjoy the now! Don't mind the ratings - I'm just glad there is a group of us who enjoy the drama here and can spazz together when we get our OTP/romcom scenes!!

That kiss deserves more than simply my ‘stare’ :P

 

 @Sky8lue @lightbringer06 @Ameera Ali

 

i know they wont give us the kiss BTS. So might as well keep our imagination sharp with the kiss we got today! :P 


Every time i watch that kiss (RAW and subbed), this was me:

Haha.. just finished the episode with subs. I gotta admit this episode is really emotional and sad, and a bit serious. I also didn't feel much the politics everyone was like worrying about as I was watching it. I was like crying the whole episode. True, we have YM plotting treason, becoming greedy and ambitious. But after watching it, I feel like this drama isn't just about that. It's about RELATIONSHIPS, mending, breaking and building relationships.

 

* The King and Heo Yoon - I really feel for the King in this episode. Despite the doubt he had that his best friend might be doing something behind his back, he just didn't believe it immediately. But now that YM just blabbed his stupid liar mouth, there's no going back. Indeed, Heo Yoon is planning to replace him (which I still don't know for what reason) as the king, but their relationship is just heartbreaking to watch too when the King felt so betrayed.

 

* Dong Joo and Yulmu - A broken relationship now that DJ is already aware of who YM truly is. She may have not had any feelings for him, but she had always been civil to him at least. Esp. the fact that he always maintained the previous house DJ used to live in (I'll give him that). 

 

* King and Dong Joo - I really love the conversation/moments between ND, DJ and the King from the previous episodes. And how DJ advised the king at first to sleep beside a loved one when he can't sleep. The king did try to do so but withdraw on a second thought. And then they meet again in this episode, and DJ reminded him that perhaps his wife is just waiting for him to reach out again. A complicated relationship they have because what will happen when DJ learns the truth that he's actually the king.

 

* King and Queen - Per DJ's advise, he did reach out to the queen, who was very much willingly when she smiled to the king.

 

*King/Queen and Nokdu - Another complicated one. I feel so sorry for ND for how he found out he was the King's son and how he found out who the king is. The conflict and struggle he must be feeling inside when his own real father is trying to harm his foster dad. How much lost he is. And that scene with the Queen too... him meeting his mother is quite heartbreaking too. We have this idiom in our language called "lukso ng dugo" (which I'm not sure what the accurate translation is to English, but it basically means like a recognition of a blood or just like when an adopted child meets his/her own biological parents, it's that feeling of familiarity towards them). And I think that's what the Queen felt when she turned around and looked back at ND.

 

* Nokdu and Dong Joo - I don't think I need to say much about this because I think now, they are officially a couple :wub:. I mean, after all that smooching under the rain :rolleyes: . What I want to happen now is for them to be honest with each other and open up what actually they've been up to. I know that DJ finding out ND is the king's son is another conflict we have to look forward to but I just hope that it won't be a reason for DJ to go away, AGAIN. 

 

So I don't think this is just about politics. It's so much more if you actually watch it carefully.

 

And that plague, this means DJ and ND are both contaminated. I wonder if this will play an important part again. Oh god... hope not... both ND and DJ have a lot on their plates already so a plague? Jinjja?? But if they're gonna use it for a more romantic scene leading to a bed scene, who am I to complain? :joy:

 

Lol..idk if I'm making any sense, it's already 3:30 am and I need to sleep. HAHA... 

 

I totally agree with you, and tbh honest I like also those parts that are serious and heartbreaking, I cried when the King felt betrayed by the one he considered his friend, I understood a bit more all the pressure and loneliness he must feel T___T anyway...

 

And the end of the episode, I was at work when I saw the spoilers, I almost jump from my desk xD oh gosh I didn't expect two kisses and these were so sweet :wub: thanks PD nim for hearing us!!! B) and now that scriptwriter is making our wishes true we can expect that /coughs/  bed scene /coughs/ right? :3

We finally got the deep kiss monday we deserve. These two know how to kiss and dongjoo grabbing nokdu by the neck. She just can't keep her hand off him. My replay button is about to break but I'll be re-watching this scene for a long long time. If they won't release the making video for this scene I'll sue. We deserve the full making videos.

<_<

 

 

So she finally enters the palace? First smooching now back hugging. The skinship in this drama is making my throat hurt. Good to see dongjoo becoming more proactive in the palace politics. I liked how she told off yulmu and we finally know that she knows his family history and true nature. You can't fool dongjoo with your sweet lies and manipulation this girl is too smart and fearless for that. the deepning relationship between her and king will make it harder for dongjoo to kill him later. From what I know of his history he doesn't die but gets deposed. Everyone should reconcile and go live far away somewhere as a family. The king, queen. nokdu, dongjoo, vice curator, master and aengdu. One big happy and comedic family. Let yulmu sit on the throne and be miserable with his politicking.

Awww that back hug!!! :wub: finally we are seeing the two of them showing more of their affection! This is the calm before the storm. We got a sweet and deep kiss! This means soon, there will be separation! Hell is going to break loose when the truth of both their identity is revealed. I hope by then, both of them have grown stronger together. Please no noble idiocy or leaving each other. Can’t we have a couple who is strong together no matter what..? We need more hugs and sweet gestures and even kisses. Both of them needs to help each other heal. 

 

YM is annoying me with his smirks. His character is really frustrating me because from his intentions, he seems to be just plain evil. Now i wonder if he will really be able to kill DJ when the time comes? He said he is fullfilling one of DJ’s wishes. So does that make it the reason for him to be evil? I really don’t know his intentions. He is just plain evil in his mind.

 

YM!!

Hmm..I dont have too many problems with the political aspects of this drama. We need it to understand the core problems of why the past happened. I just want it to come faster. It is dragging the tension. At least give us new hints on why so many people had to be killed in the past. The king seems like a nice and wise guy when he is not playing King. Yet, it feels like he is scared of something. Is it possible that he doesn’t want to lose his throne to his son? Or is a prophecy we have yet to hear about? Or is it just simply fear of being overthrown one day? :blink: It is episode 10 but we still have yet to find out the reasons. No hints have been given except the facts that he ordered his son to be killed. But seeing this is 16 episodes, i am sure we will find out in episode 12-14. Somewhere around there. 

 

@lightbringer06 i think the tight hug in the well doesn’t count for us since it wasn’t reciprocated haha. But it made me flutter when he hugged her in the well lol. What made me flutter more is how DJ pulled him for another kiss and he responded by hugging her closer too. Does this count as our tight hug? Probably not since both our expectations for these two are pretty high :joy:

We have yet to find out the reasons too. All we know is he ordered the kill. 
 

@stroppyse omo!! your translation made the ending scene even sweeter for me! :wub: I have always liked ND’s persistence towards DJ. This is one characteristic of his that I admire.

Oh, the ratings.. gah, I don't care anymore. Guess Knetz prefer to watch SBS too. This is why KBS should promote this in KBS World for international fans. However, I'm still happy that us international viewers are enjoying this. Just saw these comments on Koala's too...

I know since yesterday this drama has been trending in Weibo too. I didn't know Chinese are enjoying this as well. I know Thais do because I'm seeing lots of their comments in Twitter :) I hope this gets more popular in other countries so that perhaps we can see KSH and JDY promote it together there too^^. So let's just create more buzz in the internet. I just wonder if the comments on Twitter and IG count in terms of buzzworthy or just in Korea? 

 

 

@vangsweetie637 HAHA... it's not the hug we wanted but they just went straight to kissing, so, yeah, expectations exceeded...lol.. we didn't get any intense/emotional hug but an intense kissing instead :wub: ... at least we'll get a backhug tonight^^.. and maybe more cuddling :P

 

Man, I always repeat that kiss scene... lol.. I sound like a pervy.. HAHA.. I mean, the conversation and the lines between ND and DJ leading up to it is just beautiful, intense and full of emotions. You can really feel their feelings in their kiss. To those counting on JDY in terms of the kissing, did he do well?..he he.. but dang, KSH is finally getting out of her comfort zone and people who've been following her says it's her best kiss scene thus far?^^
