Hey Monarchs! I would like to thank you all for visiting, posting, liking, and lurking on this thread. "The King" has been quite a ride for all of us. Kudos to us for sticking with the drama until the

There is two options either horseshoe or a villain from TKEM but it seems like you have upgraded with your new AV somehow:joy:

I suggest you pull down that one and take an AV from one of the gangs from the salt farm:joy:

 

 

I chose the horseshoe so not sure why it is an upgrade if you mean upgrade from no AV at all to an AV? I prefer loser horseshoe than loser gang from salt farm. I can't find the regular horseshoe that someone posted but I took this from the AV of another loser, stole his or her AV, don't remember whom but it was also a loser.  :joy:

In case other preview get taken down here is from SBS instagram :) 

 

Wow, another epic episode. Have to say this story have so many layers and intricate plot. Understand why some would say it is confusing, but to me if you give the story time you will understand it and its structure. People often want answer fast, but I think letting things play out is more satisfying as it give time to answer all question in a timely matter. :)   

 

Now i pray for a happy ending for our LG and TG :tears: after all the misery they deserve to get their happiness and finally being together for the rest of their life.

But then she is annoying now because she OMFG POISONED OUR KING, STABBED OUR QUEEN AND WANTS THE FLUTE!

But thanks to Luna, JTE can meet him and make him stay longer. And I wonder what is JTE asking her to steal? Was it the flute half or what? The flute is with SJ.

 

Like you do, I need to finish the backreading, I'm in page 736, still stuck in the past here.  :sweatingbullets:

Yes totally agree with you on that. Luna as the second lead would have been way more interesting

But can we talk about PM Koo after she realized her mom had been replaced? Her acting was crazy good

 

 

So, PM Koo's mom was replaced? I didn't see that coming.

I wanted to correct this. They actually caught him in ROK. 
 

The scenes happened in this order:

 

1) LR and PM meets underground in KOC. LR chokes her. 

2) LG and SJ crosses to KOC, time stops. LR is still in the middle of choking PM. LR leaves.

3) LG is back to business in KOC. He catches up with what’s been going on and he stops traitor from leaving the country. 
4) SJ meets mother in KOC.

5) LG and SJ sits by the pond and had a sad talk in KOC.

6) LR is seen entering ROK. LG’s “mother” poisons herself. Time stops (LG and SJ enters ROK). 
7) They catch LR. Don’t ask me how SJ made it that far. Wasn’t he supposed to have been frozen? Lol. But it is what it is. 

8) SJ and JY both steps up to be the one who escorts LR to travel back. SJ tells JY, “I told you many times to get lost and go to your own world. Give me the piece. When should I go?”

 

Verdict: LR was caught in ROK.

 

You are right! 

 

Also - when LL is shot, the crowd scatters and runs without a second glance at the King standing their without his guardsmen.  Back arrives and it's JY with his gun, and SJ, who deliberately makes a big deal out of putting on his police badge. By putting it on, he prevents any bystanders from calling the cops on JY and LG, and shows that he's law enforcement.  Charlies Angels then take LG to the forest, and this time - SJ, LL, and LL's half of the flute stays behind.  SJ can keep LL in custody for 48 hours, so LG and JY have 48 hours to get ready for their plan of attack to go back in time.

So with the accelerated time line - we actually lost a chunk of their history, which is VERY interesting.  Based on their outfits, JTE and LG actually go to his world at the beginning of episode 3.  He's wearing the maroon v neck and black blazer, she's wearing the striped hoodie and tan jacket.  Y'all know the scene - the first bamboo forest scene after he demands that she be Queen.  So she believes him months earlier this time.  She still got lost in Seoul, and he rescued her - the forehead boop was still there.  They also moved up the "Protect the future Queen" rescue scene a few months.

 

In conclusion, the logical change in this timeline is that they've been doing the deed for at least 3 or more months longer than before.  Good work, LG.  That seems to be the only real change you made. 

 

Also, I think we lost the scene where he watches time freeze for the first time and saw "something beautiful".  But I think they both remember it still so oh well.

Well that's the only change that matters, but even with the extra 3 months, still no news? Where's the baby? Guess in some ways LG still has more to learn.

Ugh I am so heartbroken after today's episode... 

BUT GUYS!!

After looking at the ep 16 preview, where we see LG in the coat of doom with the flowers at TE's house, the windows don't have the colorful "Hero Taekwondo Center" stickers on them anymore???

This is also my thinking and I don't think he will have the ID card with him this time around so they will have to run into each by entirely accident but I have been wrong on so many occasions take it with grain of salt.

 

I think there is gonna happen a big alteration this time due to LL, SJ and alot of other characters who crossed over won't cross over. SJ's absence will directly effect JTE's future decision as they have been friends since teenage years and LL's absence will also effect LG and without LL then you got LJH still alive roaming in JTE's world

@briseis You are right here and I said this a little earlier today, that I discovered you are right but I don't understand if he was only missing a few days in the real world in ROK, why did JTE miss him so much, it seems like he had been gone forever. He will miss her because it is 4 months but for her it is just a few days from when he left so why was she pining and missing him so much as well?  He had been gone longer than that in the past when his uncle was killed. This is just a few days, she should say, you are back pretty fast this time. :D It has just been a few days. But it seemed to me like she was waiting a long time too for him. :crazy:

I think it's safe to say it was more or less a week. However, Tae Eul's desperation doesn't come from the fact that Gon has been gone for too long - even if when you are madly in love sometimes a day seems like an eternity - but from her fear that he might not come back.  This is not the first time she was desperately waiting for him and the desperation comes from the fear that every moment, each of his visits might be the last time she sees him - TE is afraid he won't be coming back. She's been afraid of it for a long time now. And this time, he hasn't even said goodbye to her which makes her afraid even more.

First, thanks for the compliment!!!:wub::)

Honestly, I also really enjoyed reading your description about JTE and LG's personality. :) I agree with your observations. I would like to add one point, where we could see that JTE is more judgmental  than perceiving. Remember when Jangmi appeared for the first time. She assumed that he was the thug based on his appearance.

 

Ahh I appreciate you reading my post and I'm glad you enjoyed it. :D 

I went back to the scene where JTE first met JM. I don't find her judgmental rather it shows that she has a perception of what criminals look like and what new recruits look like. She takes the wrong person to be the criminal because that person looks well built.

OMG, thank you very much for leading me to MBTI. I remember LG mentioning MBTI, and thought of looking it up but now I don't have to. I took the test, and it was spot on predicting my profession/job title. Wow!

I noticed there were several moments when LG talks about his personality is different from TE, but I missed the point when he mentioned about MBTI! 

And I'm glad the link in my post led you to taking the test! Yay! It sure is accurate.

Oh... same here! Thanks for sharing it. I just need to click on the link easily. Well. I did the test and well. It's fun to see what I got. It says I'm a protagonist. Haha. There are several questions in it and I answered it partly serious and the rest is just clicking on it. I guess I have to do it once more to see the valid result of it. Anyway @ponderings thanks! 

 

As @Heretorant said TKEM makes your brain works better. I am glad not being the stupid one here. Lol

 

Somehow we've studied, watched all of shows and read a lot of stuffs and TKEM like reviving all of those in one try. Hahaha. If you know what I mean. 

For sure! I'm glad you took the test (:

Definitely agree with what @Heretorant said. I'm glad I stuck with this drama because initially I didn't understand why LG and TE were behaving a certain way. And then speculating their personalities made me understand them in a deeper level.

 

Note: This is a late response because I've been diving into the Black Lives Matter protest and educating myself about slavery and, in general, Black History in America. I need to know the past in order to understand why things are happening now. Many Black lives have died due to police brutality and the bigger problem is the systemic racism. 

 

Philosophical thought: When Lee Gon wants to go back to the day of treason again, the concept is similar to how we as people reflect and think about going back into the past. We think about going back into the past because want to change things. 

In Lee Gon's case, his first time going back to that day, he saves himself. 

This episode he decides to go back to kill Lee Lim because he doesn't want the two worlds to collide. Both worlds have already been mixed up too much. 

The more you think about the past, the more you confuse the past for the present because the past becomes an abstract idea. So what you have to do is to think about why you want to go back to the past. What can you learn from the past and what can you take from it to live in the present fully. 

Just food for thought and now I need to eat dinner (:

ahhh you're right. so once LG & JY successfully kill LL, we're probably gonna see a huge butterfly effect play out.

What a missed opportunity! LG could have came back to a not-stabbed-but-preganant JTE!

 

We should have been the writer of this drama!
