it also has to do with that couple/story that they reference in CLOY. I forget their names now. it also involved edelweiss and meeting every once a year. It was also mentioned in a CLOY thread. 

 

Yes, but that is more in the context of their fictional story. I meant the reason why the writer chose Switzerland specifically as essentially the 3rd setting of the drama (after NK and SK) - it's because of its real-life, neutral history between NK and SK, and in general, in other world conflicts.

 

https://www.history.com/news/why-is-switzerland-a-neutral-country#:~:text=For centuries%2C the tiny Alpine,the oldest and most respected.

 

For those who watched CLOY with world affairs and/or history background, the choice of Switzerland was not lost on them. It wasn't an arbitrary choice, it was a conscious, specific choice. Which is why the drama elevated itself to a higher level - this kind of details can only come from an excellent and attentive writer.

But the place Wadi Rum seems interesting. I think I will go and read up about Jordan now that this had piqued my interest in the country.

I hope we see pictures of Hyun Bin at Petra, the most interesting sight in Jordan.

Petra is beautiful, especially the treasury!! It truly lives up to its name as one of the wonders of the modern world. I hope HB gets to visit :)

Completely agree. Another reason why Switzerland is the perfect setting for a North Korean and South Korean elite is because it is known as a country where many very rich people's kids go to school. A comment I read earlier mentioned China, but it is not neutral and would endanger RJH's character. China is allied with North Korea and has a history of capturing and imprisoning North Korean defectors and returning them to North Korea. I never understood the reason why South Korea is on friendly terms with China. How can a country be friendly with the main ally of your enemy? Without China, North Korea would have fallen a long time ago, and North and South would have been one country by now.

This is so true. What is even more bizarre is how many nations know the ugly side of a country like China but refuse to openly talk about it. All in the name of trade and business. Truth is, China and Russia are the main reasons North Korean leaders continue to terrorize their own people and South Korea.

Yeah Kim Jong Un  himself studied there in his adolescent years. 

 

They could have never shown them married or living together in another country as NK doesn't allow it's citizens to emigrate. To be a defector would have meant punishment to his family in NK. So  the easier, more realistic yet the most heart breaking way was to make it a 2 weeks a year kind of ending. 

 

In most of the  famous love stories around the world -  Romeo Juliet and others, the couple  usually die tragically which made their story immortal. Thankfully Seri-RJH live in CLOY, but I guess one needs a bit of tragedy and heart break to make stories truly heart wrenching and keep the audience asking for more.

 

I take solace in the thought that our Ri- Ri couple were able to speak to each other through the remaining 70 weeks of the year through some special Mobile phone  ( they show Seoung Joon making calls easily to Seri's brother in SK, so our couple would have found some way)

Thank you for the update. I was looking forward to this. Finally, he will be done filming soon, and then I believe the announcement will come.

 

 

Had he traveled there already?? Any photos? Sigh... The thought of 2 months of separation!!

Charray posted the link of the photo an hour ago. It's a photo of a Jeep in the desert with Bargaining on it. I assume they are there. But what I do not understand is why they would be in Jordan for two months?
