In my final act of consoling myself over this heartbreaking ending (especially with the fact that we're not going to get a season 2...it's just not how Korean dramas roll with it), I remind myself that So Bong got the Cheoljong who was the superhero on the side with passion overflowing, an exciting storyline and moments of angst while holding and supporting each other in death defying situations...whereas So Yong now gets to live the life of a politician's wife. :sleeping:

 

Am I grasping? Why yes, yes I am. :approves:

:tounge_wink:

 

This is the fate of every couple who lives "happily ever after," from Snow White and her prince to Samwise Gamgee and Rose Cotton. The ever after is wonderful for them but boring for us. I think that was an actual quip made by a character in the Narnia books, that the children never get to visit Narnia when it's peaceful and they can enjoy themselves.

 

Yes, I know you were joking. :grin:

 The other WTH moment was in BH's timeline. They showed a flashback of the confrontation between him and the Han guy ion the balcony . The Han guy asked him why he would send on the CCTV and become a whistleblower when it isn't his personality and, this was something BH would not normally do.  Wait, what? This was before he went back to the past! His consciousness only came back after having lived in Joseon and changed his personality that he would actually do this. But only after he was in the hospital, after this incident, after him falling into the pool!

That was a major disappointment for me with the finale. Up to that last 15 minutes, the writers had been fantastic about paying off the plot threads they set up earlier. I really think they took a sloppy short cut here. To be fair, they might have wanted more time to wrap up BH's modern story, but could only have Choi Jin Hyuk for a very limited number of days. In this case, I would have been happier with an unknown actor and a less rushed ending.

 

Speculation of time travel movies usually winds up like this:

Guide of : how the royal child was made         

The Tale Of The King’s Failed Mission   Our king had a very important mission, he even sent his brother away in order to succeed in his task.   5 minutes later.  

Watching it with subs made the final episode even worse.   I’m so tired of people saying So Bong was only influenced by So Yong’s emotions and feelings. You people had your happy generic het

At least the drama has the decency NOT to show any hot night between SY and CJ. But on a second thought, poor CJ can kiss his hot night goodbye. The most he will get is the one described by The Dowager...

 

If they had finally gotten to sexy times after BH left, I think the Team Abs folks here would have thrown their TVs and tablets across the room!

This was me after livestreaming episode 20.

LMAO if they had included a kiss or a hot night after Bong Hwan left I’d really punch a hole into a wall. Let it be a small merciful gesture the writers left for us.

I know i am late but the end of the spin off is so perfect, this is the official ending for me. :issohappy:

Is there any more after the meteor shower story, or is that it?

It's the meteor show, but it kind of game me the hope of reincarnation and that they might get together in their next lives.

Dramabeans folks felt cheated by the ending too.

Mr. Queen: I really enjoyed the final episodes until that ending ticked me off. I like the bittersweet idea of So-yong and Bong-hwan influencing each other for the better and moving on, but it feels like Bong-hwan was erased from the lives of all the people he loved. And where did So-yong even come from? It seemed like her soul had moved on, but then she popped back up out of nowhere. But most galling for me was the complete erasure of any trace of a love story between Cheoljong and Bong-hwan. Cheoljong fell in love with Bong-hwan distinctly for his unique personality and characteristics, yet he doesn’t even notice when So-yong has a literal personality transplant and ISN’T THE SAME PERSON anymore? And that right after Byung-in was admonished for not noticing the change in So-yong after Bong-hwan took over! All we got was one little comment from Cheoljong about feeling like something was missing, but it didn’t seem to affect his relationship with So-yong at all. And I do not buy that Bong-hwan’s feelings only came from So-yong either. It feels like homophobia to me, and I’m not cool with it. They wanted all the hijinks of a man in the queen’s body falling in love with the king without any acknowledgment of anything remotely non-heteronormative. Not that I’m surprised, but I’m still disappointed.

 

This is well written I don’t need to add anything else.

Great comedy. Shin Hye Sun can do comedies so well. I didn't begin watching from Ep1. The drama took place during a very sad period in Joseon history......i was afraid it would be laughing in the beginning and crying at the end. Sooooo glad it ends 'happily ever after':happydance:.  Never mind that history is distorted. But the guy who acted as the villain is soooo stiff.....he kept a straight face all right. Doesn't he feel upset that his son got sabotaged? And whose descendent was it that complained about his ancestor was being portrayed in unflattering light?

Came across this interview (don't know if it was posted here or not) where they are answering as both themselves and their characters. I kinda squealed a bit when KJH answered that what he likes about the queen is that she's half man/half woman. Btw, if I'm not putting the video in properly, please forgive me. I'm new to the forum. Both videos have English subs btw.

 

 

Also found this interview and the translation is a bit fuzzy, but I think he said that ramen was sad because both times nothing happened afterwards. LOL Could be wrong, but that had me laughing so hard.

 

 

Wish there were more interviews of the cast about the show. Seems like a lot of other popular dramas do. CLOY is filled with all sorts of fun ones. Is it because of Covid or that it's not being sponsored by a big distributor like Netflix?

If I am not mistaken KJH referred to his raymeon scenes in CLOY and Mr Queen, both turned out to be literal ramyeon mukbang not the Netflix and chills type....:brokenheart:

It is true the way Mr Queen is promoted  before, during and after is very underwhelming. It’s one of the highest ratings drama but the way they promote it is like if it was a low ratings drama. 
 

Like there was literally no interview with Shin Hye Sun??? Even Kim Jung Hyun only did two interviews with the magazines combined with photoshoots but there was no traditional interview.

Ah ha! I was wondering why he mentioned two ramen scenes. Thank you for clarifying. Still funny thinking that he wishes they had panned out...though I know he's just joking...the fangirl in me still pleased to know his character would have been overjoyed.

TVN promoted True Beauty more than Mr Queen in all of their official SocMed. Every day I saw minimal one snippet of TB but MQ was only 1 to 3 snippets per week.

Wish they would have gone straight to Netflix with this. Maybe then we would have had a different ending too. All supposition on my part as I don't know how the business-end of these things are run.

"This is where we meet for the first time," he says, showing the photo from episode 1. The king weighs in on the great "who did he fall in love with" debate! :tounge_wink:

(Well, not really...)
