I am definitely in the minority here who like the ending and the drama as a whole. For me, the story is more about the adventure of JBH into the past. Not about the love story of King and Queen.
 

In fact, every time I see the Queen, I always imagine her as the JBH from the future. Having my bias CJH as JBH no doubt plays a big role in me feeling more invested in the character, haha... So I was happy he gets to finally go home. What he had with King, I see it more as a great camaraderie during his adventure, mixed with a little bit of passion of course. He is a womanizer after all. Nothing holds him back from a chance for having some sexy time. Not even the form that he is in. 

 

When earlier we were shown JBH being in comma at the hospital, and being embroiled in a problem with authorities as well, I have already expected he will go back to the future to solve that problem. I cannot be sure because the story could go any which way but yeah, I wanted JBH to survive and be back in his handsome form... LOL... 

 

Anyway, it’s a drama I thoroughly enjoyed and wouldn’t mind a rewatch for the silly hilarious scenes. It’s a drama I would recommend others to watch too.

The OST. I do wish the regal and triumphant "King Claiming his Throne" theme was on here.

 

Does it have the music when Hwan and Hong Yeon and Hong and Chef and Lady Choi are being featured?

I can't believe there are fans who want a BH and CJ ending. Now I start seeing photoshopped pics of CJH in Hyesun's body with KJH together on social media. Gosh do you all really want to see that? No offense to those who like BL and I've nothing against them as well. But do you all want to see KJH and CJH acting as a couple lovey dovey and making out? :sweat_smile: 

Definitely not me. IT'S JUNGHYUN AND HYESUN FOR ME ANYTIME WHETHER IT'S SOBONG OR SOYONG. Just me. You all don't have to agree with me lol.

 

To those who hated the ending, that person you all love is SB not BH. Its a combination of SY and BH. I agree the direction wasn't clear that SY was present but sometimes it doesn't have to be that explicit. We are watching a drama where we need some space for imagination and not everything to be explained clearly and where the progress or ending of the drama can be easily predicted. Ratings won't go well like this. Moreover the drama was never going for a CJ-BH endgame from the beginning. The production team was fined and petitioned against for a historical distortion in just Episode 2 and marred the buzz of the show that all the cast had to stop promotions on sns for two weeks to let the controversy die down a bit. And which caused JH to stop updating his ironbell account just because the news singled out his account bio description which he edited afterwards. I don't l think they would make a CJ-BH endgame and get themselves into another controversy. Imagine a real Joseon King CJ in korean history falling in love with a man. This will be another serious historical distortion among the Koreans and it could end up as another controversy. The whole team and cast worked and filmed so hard from June 2020 to Jan 2021 in the hot and in the cold. They don't deserve any more controversy and I want them to end the drama on a high note and happily celebrate their finale ratings as deserved and not to keep on that low profile again during that first few weeks of broadcast.

 

I love the whole cast and team of Mr Queen and how close they are to have a group chat. I love their behind the scenes interactions and I hope this lovely team continue to be good friends even after the show. And lastly, I actually liked how it ended. 

 

Just my personal views. :)

Hi guys, I'm so late to comment to this topic, but even after 4 days since Ep20 I couldn't recover from my disappoinment from the final :( I was thinking about it and suddenly I got some idea I want to share.

 

For those of you who is sad with endgame "Cheoljong&Soyeon"-my interpretation and theory. So in the end Bonhwan went back to the 21th century. I believe he loved the king truely. And Cheoljong loved exactly BH, not SY. He loved his personality, his uniqeness, his surprizes and brave soul. He would wake up from nightmares and by writing Queen dictionary he could escape from those nightmares. BH was his comfort. Soyeon...from Bamboo forest I saw he was attracted to her...but I think it wasn't enough for him - he even put the sword to her neck, he dated Hwajin meanwhile etc. Towards Soyeon it was just attraction. Before wedding how many times he met Soyeon? Soyeon told BI she doesn't even know the King's face and in her sleep dream he looked like her cousin BI. I wonder why Soyeon suddenly fell in deep love with King-the almost stranger for her. Maybe influenced by her father's talks, ideas. So I don't think they met lots of times before Queen audition. The King liked Hwajin a lot too but in the end he let her leave the palace. And "well" incident - he told Hwajin he didn't like her just because of their childhood memories. So I think the same applies to Soyeon.

So ...after BH left, the palace felt to quiet and empty for me... Probably for Cheoljong too. I think after a while he realized Soyeon is not the soul he truely fell in love it. But as he said previously in a situation with SB and Hwajin he decided not to disclose the truth no one wants to disclose. So maybe he kept pretending that everything the same between King and Queen. And Cheoljong remembers how BH told him that he is from the future, so King left a message for future generations - his funny portrait/picture. It's unusual for the King to be portrayed in funny way in history book so I guess Cheoljong purposefully chose exact that portrait of himself. It was his "hi" to the future BH. Cheoljong probably was loved King and made many progressive reforms. So he left an impact. But do you remember how he told BH, that he sometimes thinks all the happening is past and in reality he is dying as incompetent King. Maybe...he missed BH a lot, since Soyeon as good woman she is, still is not eccentric, funny, loud, easy, "tigress in bed", 21th century BH who would blow his mind with funny surprizes. So maybe Cheoljong got sad a lot and started to womanize etc. to try to fill the void left by BH. And in the end died at young age alone and sad. So in the past two souls that fell in love couldn't be united. But Cheoljong also wished to be reborn to meet BH again as commoners. So I think...maybe in the 21th century they will still meet. I don't know who Cheoljong will be in his next life. Maybe not a man. But I believe BH and CJ will definitely meet at some day and fall in love once again. So...this is the interpretation my sad heart created in my mind

Just my personal views. :)


I respect your opinion and I honestly envy you that you can look at the ending this way. 

 

I don’t undermine the hard work the whole Mr Queen put into the drama. Both people in front and behind the camera. But just because someone worked hard we can’t express our opinion? Any artist or any public figure has to be be prepared to be challenged on his work. 
 

To be honest without SHS and KJH incredible talents and chemistry I would just throw away the whole drama and go on with my life. But because So Bong/Cheoljong love story was incredible until the finale, it’s maddening how they decided to end the drama. 
 

As you said - the person we love is So Bong  - Bong Hwan in So Yong’s body. It’s not So Yong alone. 


So isn’t it reasonable for me to be upset if in the end the person who committed suicide and played being dead the whole time was the one who was rewarded most? And the person who wanted to live desperately, the person who went through the biggest growth and challenges ended up with nothing? How would you explain “MY LIFE WITHOUT ME” otherwise? The title literally references to Bong Hwan’s life without him. The life in Joseon with his loved ones.


I believe Cheoljong loved Bong Hwan first, but maybe he came to love So Yong later. He fell for the Queen when Bong Hwan was in So Yong’s body. He saw So Yong but the distinctive skills, talents and personality were Bong Hwan’s. And I believe both Bong Hwan and So Yong loved him too. So why shouldn’t I be upset if one person in this love triangle ended up alone?

 

This is So Bong saying to Cheoljong that he needs to be born again, so they can meet in another life. So Bong said she/he might appear in front of Cheoljong in an unexpected and strange form (a man). Doesn’t this sound like longing to meet him again in another life?

I didn’t expect BL ending. That would be ridiculous considering they used real historical figures. I myself said it several times before they wouldn’t make one of their Joseon kings liking a man. BUT they could have balls enough to make Cheoljong’s reincarnation appear in the future (some famous actress could have made a cameo for conservative people to digest it if it could not be Kim Jung Hyun). 

 

I don’t blame the actors, I blame the writers and the director in failing to deliver the ending that would make a sense from a narrative perspective. To think that they wrote brilliant previous 19 episodes is even more sadder.

Alas, no! That's the instrumental of A-Yeon's LIKE IT'S SUMMER. Check out my post on page 193 for the version with lyrics.

If you saw this story as BH's adventures in time and not a romance, you're probably a lot happier with the ending. The genre rules are different.

I see what you did there. :lol:

 

And I agree that would have done a lot to quell the disappointment in the Romance camp. Their love adventures will go on!

It's close to a week since many of us caught the ending, some live and some a little later. There's been so many passionate and dispassionate views about the ending that it's become a case of our perspectives - no right and no wrong. I for one watched the raw live and still can't bring myself to watch E20 with subs. I'll be greedy and hold onto the last fleeting scene in the cart where SB and CJ had their final moment of intimacy, for a little while longer. 

 

What I do want to say though (and this is just from the raw, judging by the way SY carried herself with the Queen Dowager) is that I choose to see JBH as a mentor or a teacher to KSY. He showed her how to handle and even intimidate people who had intimidated her and drove her to the edge, literally she jumped off the edge of a pond. 

 

Before he inhabited her body, she was a sweet young thing, idealistic and in love, compliant with the norms of society and eventually defeated by it. She neither knew how to help the King nor how to protect herself and drive the wolves away. But JBH showed her that in a society where women were objects, even vessels for producing heirs to the throne that she could maintain her dignity and fight back using her brains, not her brawn. So, even when JBH had departed, he had left behind a KSY who was now stronger, emotionally and mentally, a source of strength and an equal partner to CJ.

 

To me, that is worthy of JBH's sacrifice and untimely departure from CJ: he transformed KSY, the girl into KSY, the feisty woman, putting aside whether he had viewed their relationship as a platonic one or not.

Ik this drama ended but I just wanted to say the ending made me sad. Lmao. I mean it's a better ending than the cdrama one where they both died but...I really wanted him to not go back to the future. Couldn't both souls just continue to co-habilitate? Lololol. That would be so funny. But anyways, despite the ending I lovedddd this drama. It was so good. And I am happy that everyone ended up alive, well... sorta. Also, I wish the spin off had more episodes.

I'm not so bent on him ending up with CJ that part is what it is, I just feel like we should have seen more BH in the last minutes, at least living his best life in some way, I just feel like he was thrown to side. I guess no longer being a suspect and being a better person was his reward for everything. IDK the end just made me feel like the drama was never about him in some weird way.

 

Also some of the why should have been explain if he's not SY reincarnate, so was it just because they were in the river at the same time but how did this all happen on the same day 200 years ago? so they were in the river on the same day but different years, was this part explained and I some how missed it?

Thank you for sharing your video. 

Among all of Mr Queen ost, my top favorite is "Here I Am".

 

Kim Jung Hyun picks for most hilarious scene.

Other than the hilarious scene of So Bong having the mental breakdown, I like this scene because we can see Shin Hye Sun in the long hair without any braid.

The joke with Cheol Jong's stage name never fail to crack me up:joy:
