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

He isn’t even denying it! He’s just saying he can’t love the queen because it would complicate everything.
 

Loving Kim So Yong would mean being controlled by Kim clan, loving her would mean abandoning his cause, loving her would mean loving someone whose family murdered his, loving her would mean betraying Ji Hwan who he thinks saved him.

Both king and queen faking death is quite unrealistic even for this drama. That's asking for another palace disaster. Also, the drama is very open about people knowing their faces. Closest thing it could happen is that Cheol Jong abdicates and gives his throne to his half-brother, Prince Yeong Phyeong (if his ending is a good guy). Then Cheol Jong and So Bong leave the palace and So Bong opens a restaurant.

In the real novel, they have a son so after 20 years they left the palace to their son and pursue happy life together as normal people. One ending they fake their death in order to do so, another they was killed while celebrating the queen's birthday.. 

 

Even in the drama they have two endings.. I personally like the one in the novel...coz they deserve that happiness...living in the palace is one thing after another, a never ending fight...they will always be greedy people... Though a bit sad for their little prince to be left alone.. 

 

I'm looking forward for the pregnancy thing..idk how they are going to do it in korean version.. 

 

Still i'm rooting for better ending for this drama.. Writer nim..i believe in u...

I wonder if drama will say it's actually parallel universe Joseon.

So Bong talked about it with that cute palace girl. It could be foreshadowing.

 

Then writer gets free pass if Bong Hwan returns modern era and finds out that his Joseon didn't change. Nothing changed.

 

It would also explain why some of historical facts are different. 

 

Since it's already body swap, time travel fantasy comedy, it wouldn't be surprising if it turned out to be parallel universe Joseon.

@kyakyariThanks for the BTS/making clips :happy2:

 

Enjoyed the posts and theories etc. for ep 10 loved it a lot.

 

Enjoyed this episode a lot.

 

King consoles himself from nightmare writing a dictionary of the Queen’s quirky vocab. The chef through the Queen sharing his lonely past to Lady Choi who he is crushing. Lady Choi so aggravated getting the energy out like the cook screaming out words to feel better.

 

The consort is def shows her upset at the Queen and trying to show her claws are coming out .

 

Aww So Bong is a cute.

Yeah I ever mentioned that here. Webdrama has 2 ending, but because many fans felt unsatisfied with the ending, they made the 3rd alternate ending as special video around Christmas. But I seriously prefer novel version ending.

This webdrama was aired in 2015, but I just watched this around 2018? And finished read the English translation of the novel in 2020. I saved this drama on my phone so when I need to laugh I watched that one, but I only watched the alternate ending 1, because of all 3 alternate ending of webdrama, I thought the 1st one was the best one... 

 

Yeah, I'm also looking forward the pregnancy. But for this time, we need more feeling from both of them please... Even though maybe after they did that, they had their denial stage first.

Spoiler

 

As I remember in webdrama, when emperor and empress had sex for the 2nd times, even though in beginning seemed like a rape, but then deep down in her heart The Empress loved it & later her hormone became uncontrollable because she really need more The Emperor's touch, then The Empress did alot flirting. 

For the Emperor, I forgot the reason, but after that he made a space with The Empress. Oh yah, as I remember he felt guilty towards The Empress.

 

 

Oh yah, when the queen left the king near the lake, the king said "That's my Queen"... I'm so happy that statement from The King, even though he not declare it, but actually he already considered the Queen as his ally, his partner. And he's so proud of his own Queen....

 

Later... Another king's lines from episode 10. After he left the Concubine and before the Grand Queen Dowager came, he just sit and said "The person who makes me happy and sad..." I thought he already considered again who the person now. 

But about happy and sad, I also remember again what the king said to Byun In about the queen "That person isn't your cousin anymore, the person who took care about her happiness and sadness, as well as her safety is me."

 

Spoiler

But... But... I have big feeling that next week the one who get hurts will be the concubine. As I remember if we follow the storyline, this time will be a competition between The King and Byung In, also The Queen and Concubine, and in front of many people The Concubine made The Queen looked like a jealous mad woman who hurt the Concubine.

I am having quite a hard time articulating this so please bear with me im not so good with words. 

 

And this is just a theory and forgive me if this has been mentioned already since I have not had the chance to backread.

 

There's probably a reason why So Bong's memories are all mixed up right now. It's all going to lead to Bong Hwan's soul finally leaving So Yong's body to return to his, in the present time. By then, he will probably have recovered. So Yong is left with her old memories + awareness of having Bong Hwan's soul once inside her, acquiring some of his traits as well. So eventually, we will be seeing just So Yong and not So Bong anymore but this time, a more confident, strong and independent So Yong to whom the king has fallen deeply in love with. 

 

I don't really know how else this will be a happy ending but however they will do it, I am fervently praying that the writers do give us a happy one.

Why did the king suddenly hugged So Yong when she saw her? Is it because he don’t want So Yong to call his father in law and to know that he went inside the well? I’m so confused becoz clearly he fantasized hwajin first before he cleared his head and noticed so yong. :expressionless:

first he saw hwajin, but his vision cleared and realised that it was actually sobong. it was then he proceeded to hug her and confessed his fears because he knew it was the queen who was with him. :') 

 

this ep we're seeing the king relying on the queen more and more, to the point that the queen is basically one of his only comfort/distraction from the nightmare that he's basically living in. the soompi article wrote it really nicely - everyone wants something from him. he can't seem to be his true self in front of anyone. until sobong came along and apparently wants absolutely nothing to do with him (and i guess also soyong who only wants the best for him? my own greedy little theory cos we don't see enough of her lel) :'))))))))))))) anyway sobong pls give our king a big hug

I think regardless of how I rationalise it, the thought of the ending of So Yong coming back to her body and her and the King living happily ever after still leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. I fell in love with the Chef and King, not really So Yong and King. I understand that with conservative Korea, the writers are in a tough spot but still :sad1:
