I'm from Canada so i'm not going to pretend that i understand well the dynamic currently between North and South Korea but i think the main problem here for some conservative people in South Korea is how human and romantic they made North Korea as a whole.

I commented earlier how well the writers created this little fictional wold for North Korea and it was so well done that i wanted Seri to remain in North Korea to build a future with JH and i still want that. I find the entire setting romantic and more entertaining than South Korea and that's what i think angers some people in SK because themselves they saw the appeal and they are mad because it's a fantasy world that still can attract and influence the opinion of their residents in South Korea who are young and easily influenced. I understand this point of view but i find it selfish and oppressive. People should have the freedom in art and in the beginning of each episode it says clearly that it's a FICTIONAL world, they put that notice because they KNEW some people would be offended by the way they chose to portray North Korea.

 

Let me also begin with the disclaimer that as a Canadian, I also do not have the full grasp of the political tension between the SK and NK. Everything that I am about to say is purely as a drama consumer who is watching this political rift between NK and SK as purely a spectator.

 

What I do not understand is how someone living in the comforts of a "first word/developed world" would have the desire to live in NK. How is it that this drama is deemed to be "glamorizing" NK, when they've shown nothing but the political unrest/corruption in their government, lack of technological advancements, the poverty suffered by the citizens and even showed the shortage of daily necessities that "normal" people outside of NK have access to. For example: how can someone find it "glamorous" to go to NK when you're risking getting your car's windshield wiper be stolen by just merely parking it or not having refrigerator to store your food or as Seri has pointed out, having to heat up bath water in the cauldron when she has unlimited hot water in SK. If anything, if you really go deeper, this drama re-iterated the massive inequality that North Koreans suffer. Under a communistic regime, this drama emphasized that those who have the socioeconomic upper-hand are free to do whatever their want, while those born in poverty are left to suffer.

 

As jamy47 pointed out, the conservatives in SK are protesting against this drama due to their fear that South Koreans would have a romanticized view of NK. It is a fair argument. However, I would argue that this presumption is a disservice to the intelligence of its South Korean audience. These SK conservatives are essentially sending the message that they need to protect their citizens from a FICTITIOUS world because they are too naive and gullible to not be able to discern between fiction and reality.

 

Anyways, I am not worried about this. This is not the first time a tVN drama has had to deal with such a complaint. Plus, I am pretty sure that the production team had the foresight to prepare for this knowing that they would be tackling a politically sensitive matter. If this actually leads to arbitration, tVN could easily win this by arguing that they have a disclaimer in the beginning of every episodes that what they are about to see are FICTITIOUS. I am just irked when people politicize art. I watch dramas as an escape from my already politicized reality, I do not need it injected into my dramas.:angry:

Wow this thread is moving so fast, it’s hard to keep up!! It’s going to move at lighting speed once we get our epic kiss (if we do but I am hopeful!!)! Maybe even a little more then a kiss? ;)


Always great visiting to help pass the time until the next episode! Thanks everyone for constantly sharing things. 
 

Can’t wait to see more JH/SR and the F5. How much fun it’s going to be :D

Guys! Because of these following news about being sued, I am really scared of this show being cancelled. Please someone tell me it might be true or not. Is this thing that serious enough? I really don't understand about this. I thought South Korea is a democratic country.

The mystery of Ri Jeong Hyuk's missing North Korean Eternal Leaders' portrait pin:

 

RJH wasn't wearing it when he and Se Ri were in the elevator after the unfortunate encounter with Seo Dan.

 

Then the pin made a cameo at dinner with his parents and Dan and her mom. Maybe he's required to wear it when his father is around.

 

But the pin was missing when he said goodbye to his dad at the hotel driveway. Bad, Mr. Ri. You're at the mighty presence of the third most powerful man in North Korea.

 

The pin was still missing when he was following Se Ri and JS walking down the streets of Pyongyang.

Ironically, this was the scene where a Pyongyang guard was checking them if they were wearing the portrait pin.

Pin still MIA when they were ordering food at the restaurant.

Surprise! Their order of chicken and beer was served with the red portrait pin. It's now back on RJH's lapel.

And it stayed right there for the rest of the evening eavesdropping on Se Ri's "I like it" confession to RJH.

Hi,  I was just re-watching this episode (at home sick and bored with CNY:sweatingbullets:), my observation is, the pin is on his Navy blue inner jacket (the one he's wearing during dinner), the jacket he wore in the elevator and bidding his dad farewell is the long Black over coat. Then when JH is drinking beer with SR, he has only his inner jacket, the pin is on his jacket again.

 

I also notice the Pyongyang guard has his pin in his inner jacket too, he lifted his over coat to show SJ his pin when he was asking them about it.

 

So i think,  the production team did pay attention to details... the pin was just under the Long over coat JH is wearing. :D

Urgh I dislike bringing this up again Can we sue the party back for making sensationalised claims? :lol: 

This is a drama as many has said before, not a news report.

 

I hope the team and writer stands strong despite the “controversy”. I also hope the writer doesn’t get swayed by the opinions of the fans (even in our requests of passionate kisses if they’re untimely and don’t fit into the storyline!) and writes a strong second half that ends beautifully in this story of healing and love that crosses borders.

 

I also like this story how there is a strong female lead. Although Captain Ri has been quite the protector throughout the first half of the drama, Seri has also protected him in different ways and have given him a new purpose in his life after suffering from the loss of his brother. I hope she will now protect him now that he’s in Seoul! Hoping F5 and her can all come up with a brilliant and strategic plan to defeat the bad guy and her evil brothers.

Very well said, thanks!! Like @jamy47 I also would like Seri and JeongHyeok to stay in North Korea but as she stated it is purely because of drama, it would be stupid to consider it in real life. I believe people are clever enough to distinguish difference between real and fiction. However there is one thing that is presented in the drama that might validate the Christian party's claim (not that i agree with their accusation). Besides the upright and moral Captain RJH and his family, normal civilians are presented as warm people and contrast with south koreans in the drama is striking. However the north koreans are mere civilians compared to South koreans in the drama (we only saw Seri's family as South Koreans) so if we compare them there is a clear difference. South Koreans seem more materialistic while North koreans seem more sentimental and moral. Since we don't have equal settings, comparisons between two sample is not right. therefore I believe the Christian party never watched the drama but only gathered their accusations based on the drama reviews like mine where i want North Korean happy ending.

The drama is only emphasising normality of those people and moreover the sameness with North and South Koreans based on how they daily lives and customs are. But National Security Law is challenging these type of movements and attempts to normalize North Koreans. It strictly prohibits any pro-North Korean sympathy. However Drama production already put the disclaimer in each and every episode i agree with you that it won't be any problem that involves prosecution. 

There are interesting papers that discuss the reunification and reaction of both South and North Koreans to it, if you like to check (i don't know if i am allowed to share it here, sorry if i am not): 

 

Grzelczyk, V., 2014. New approaches to North Korean politics after reunification: The search for a common Korean identity,  Communist and Post-Communist Studies, 47, 179-190.

I've been re-watching earlier episodes of CLOY. And now that I have watched the scene with the parents where Jung Hyuk confessed that he didn't give Seri up to the State Security Department because he didn't want her to get hurt, I get to experience every scene in a different light. Gosh, his admission was so outright and so unapologetic.

 

It all makes sense now, why he takes time to make noodles from scratch for a total stranger. Why he keeps on chasing after her, keeps protecting her, risking everything. Because he's already in love with her. Even Seri realizes it.

 

His actions toward her are twice as beautiful to watch because I already know what is in his heart. That scene in the market with the scented candle, he must have been so scared for her. The fact that he instructs his men to protect her every time he goes out of the house. Or that time when he rode a bike to fetch her. Even when he ran up the mountain only to end up paragliding with her thru the mountain. I could only imagine what he's thinking. He already loves her that much. :kiss_wink:

 

Ah, so many more earlier scenes to re-watch. Even the coffee-making scene is more heart fluttering now.

Hard to keep up on this thread! But did anyone notice that the kite Seri saw flying into the air that distracted her while she was stopped at the red light, found itself on the tree outside RJH’s house when he was opening his brother’s watch to get the memory card?

Yes. And I feel that it was used to emphasise 'fate' that they would reunite.

Still re-watching past episodes. OMG the thirst and hunger is real.

 

Look at him, he looked so traumatized. Poor old man. 

 

Ri Jung Hyuk's dad probably had to kill, torture people and do a lot of unspeakable things in order for him to one of the most powerful men in North Korea, but nothing prepared him for seeing his son flirt with the woman he obviously loves. He would probably prefer looking at detached limbs swimming in a pool of blood than witness their cheese-tastic reunion :D:P

 

RJH parents had surely accepted Seri as their own that very day, even if it means grave danger to their family. They have a literally dead son and one that's dead on the inside. RHJ's father has probably seen so many gruesome crimes against humanity that saving these two love birds would be all worth it. If push comes to shove, Daddy Ri will protect Seri at all cost. It was never mentioned in the epilogue with the ducklings going to SK but it's a given.

 

I also remember that family dinner with Seo Dan's mom. He'd been there and has probably seen the stark contrast between RHJ temperament around both women. RJH with Seo Dan is cold, calculated and almost robotic. RJH with Seri is warm, passionate and protective-- ready to defy and disown even him if the situation arises. Seri is their daughter now too.

I’m loving this show, absolutely adoring it. I can understand with the controversial setting or pairing, that this may be interpreted differently in SK, so I will just be giving my perspective as an American. I think SR’s fondness for the North wasn’t the writers efforts to be ‘pro communism or Anything like that, but highlighting how someone living the most luxurious and best possible life style, actually enjoyed such a simple and ‘less developed’ life in NK. It was showing how home is where the heart is. It’s highlighting her bonds with the people there and how there are no barriers no matter the political or cultural climate to bonding with someone from ‘the other side of the train tracks.’  SR refers to her and RJH as Romeo and Juliet aka star crossed lovers. I’m sure if a similar show was made here where an American ends up in the Middle East in a terrorist labeled  country, such a pairing like this would be met with much controversy in the US, especially if the American enjoyed living there like SR did. Another instance I can think of is an American and Russian together, and how much backlash that would get since an American could be at risk of ‘treason’ for wanting to move to Russia for loved one. I wish love had no limits or bounds and that reality, the world was at a stage of universal peace so no possible social interaction and bond could be withheld.

Hello comrades.

 

I have been out of touch with the forums ever since Moonlight Drawn By Clouds have ended, but CLOY dragged me back here. And now, my fragile shipper heart have given in.

I am so in love with our BBs. I sincerely hope they date IRL. Hihi..

 

Feb 1 feels like a lifetime away. There's a special episode this weekend but that wouldn't be enough to satiate our hunger for Ep. 11 and I don't even know if there's gonna be subs for it. So I feel really bad and missing uri namja HB and uri melo queen SYJ.

 

I wanted to share an observation from the earlier episodes (since there's nothing to do but rewatch clips). I totally agree that RJH seems to know YSR from their chance encounter in Switzerland. That smile during the epilogue in Ep. 1 says it all. Likewise, the scene in Ep. 2 when YSR asks RJH's name after the crying in front of a stranger moment and he tells her it's better that she forgets everything when she returns to SK has taken a different meaning to me. It's like he's subtly showing bitterness, that somehow YSR has forgotten about him and their time in Switzerland. (He might be thinking, "Why remember? Go ahead and just forget about it like what you did right now. No biggie.")

 

I dunno. Maybe it's just me. Hihi..
