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

yes! I saw that too from the preview, and what can I say that soyong gonna remember EVERYTHING that happen before she drowning into the lake like HOW CAN I WAIT FOR A WEEK NOOOO!!!

 

imma wandering around in this forum and twitter also IG back and forth while waiting Sat and Sun

hopefully next episode CJ and SB relationship become stronger, please dont let them fight Kim Clan and the bad guys separately. let them walk together in the same path like his wish in the letter that don't know whether it has been sent or not :bawling:

Next week we’re gonna see SB worried and taking care of CJ just like he did for her before this!! She won’t be able to deny her feelings for him any more!!! The one silver lining to the explosion today I guess :cold_sweat:

 

her face when running towards CJ, doesnt like totally in sob but in extremely worried and shock and want to keep strong to provide first aid or whatever rescue acts. aa i dont know what am I going to say, im totally in mess because of this episode. all of her attention centralized to CJ that she can't see and hear anything near her only for CJ.
 
 I hope the drama would let us know his inner thought when seeing only Queen who bravely approaching him with her worried face, despite the situation that may still be in danger, maybe another explosion.
 
 Please SB throw BI away, chocked him, kick him, do that ninja chop, until you can reach CJ hand or beside him. remember the day when you can lift 150 kg  :bawling:

The important question - do you think Cheoljong knew it was So Bong who saved the banquet? That it was her who came up with all those ideas? I think he must’ve known, right? She was missing during the banquet and the messages she sent him were clearly her style. I was so looking forward to seeing him tasting her food but no, the writer decided not to show us :angry:

 

I strongly believe he must know it is Queen, the person in charge who saved the banquet (okay, im in delusional mind right now, forcing the story though im not the writer lol)  he should have recognized her handwriting and that odd doodle, right? also the unique dishes that had never been existed in Joseon era.
 
yeeees omg, why on earth there's no scene of him tasting the food? or maybe the writer decided to save that scene in emotional way, like gukbap or anything else when SB already accept the way she is and her feeling toward CJ

But this could actually turn out good in the long run. It is very likely that the hearing loss is caused by ruptured eardrums which takes several weeks to heal on its own (if you are lucky).

 

glad to hear that, please writer-nim, CJ has lost many things in his life. in this matter, imma believe in queen dowager fortune stick that she take in that morning, CJ will have a good luck in whatever situation that happen right now.

Hello everyone!

It's been a while since I was on soompi. Happy to be back! ^_^ 

 

I absolutely love and adore Shin Hye Sun (is there anyone who doesn't?) but I just want to rant a thing or two about our poor king. 

While no character is black or white in this drama, the king is as rightly described by himself a "pitiable mutt". I wonder, did this guy ever have a moment of peace or fun before he met our So Bong? The palace intrigues are so stressful! I can't imagine living in such conditions - always being wary of one's surrounding, being watchful over one's words and not able to show true emotions. 

 

Maybe that's why he's so taken by the Queen - her (I'm using "her" pronoun out of convenience here) modern privilege always her to be her true self - she's carefree and tries to make the best of her situation. Also, she's emotional quite healthy - she self-talks her way out of crisis after crisis, she consults a doctor when she's having psychological problems (I like how she's handling her identity crisis here - through emotional release as night-letters lol) and in general she's active and optimistic. The King does not have the "luxury" of such progressive notions (but he seems quite open and receptive to So Bong's ideas). He probably is crumbling under the burden of his fake self and the burden of his duty and then So Bong comes like a refreshing chaos - unpredictable, raw, amusing and a whole lot of other things. His initial distrust and dislike/disinterest turns into something quite deep and haunting - he reveals his vulnerable side to her and she protects it, her sense of right and wrong leaves a deep impression, he ponders over his own actions and tries to become a better person. I think So Bong is like a soothing balm for his scarred soul. (maybe Bong Hwan is healing the equally scarred soul and heart of the real queen - in ep 5 when the real queen tells the king, "you should love me!" - the korean word they use for love I think implies love+longing). And with or without his realisation, she is fast becoming his most important person (and vice versa as the Queen tries to resolve her own feelings for him) - the ending of ep 12 was quite impactful.

 

The court politics are distasteful, I hope the couple gets some quality time together next week. 

P.S.: I used to read posts on this thread now and then in the past few weeks but I was caught up with work and could only now take out the time. I enjoyed reading and fangirling along with you guys. ^_^

I love sageuks and have seen plenty of evil scheming officials, but Minister Kim (or whatever his official title is) is SO HATEABLE! That last scene was hard to watch, with that subtle smugness and triumph in his face. I said in a previous comment that Kim Jung-hyun's acting is impressing me but it bears repeating after this episode. It was heartbreaking to see him forced into submission in front of the court, you could just see the weight of that hopelessness settling on his shoulders. Can't wait to see Minister Kim get his comeuppance and the king's authority to finally be respected. 

 

On the positive side, the fan fight was super cool and creative and the "text message" conversation between the king and queen was adorable. I definitely ship them now, though considering I have no idea how the logistics would work out considering who she (or he, I guess) actually is and all that! Their chemistry is great, and seeing them come to trust each other and be drawn to each other and how protective she is of him is really compelling to me.

Welcome back @shimshimae!:)

yeah agree. he saw her at the kitchen. he must have noticed she's not at the banquet. the funny writing, bizarre food.. it's all too obvious. i can't see him being oblivious to the fact short of a crazy plot twist or miss. but in all the current excitement we just missed his reaction or maybe it will be shown later on..

i love your take on their relationship. this reminds me of a statement i saw at this forum https://janghaven.com/topic/522-mrqueen-철인왕후-current/page/7/ 

 

Kim Jung-hyun said, "Please wait and see how the thread that intertwines with Kim So-yong and Cheol-jong will untie the knot," and "How Cheol-jong changes and grows through Kim So-yong, and how Kim So- yong views such Cheol-jong is the main point of view in the second half."

 

there is somehow a cosmic affinity between the two, something like soyong/sobong being the guardian angel to the king and i also wonder how the events from the joseon timeline will ultimately influence bonghwan's modern reality.

It was clever of So Bong to disguise herself as Chef Lee Saeng Mang.

And everyone in kitchen indeed play along with her. 

As what happen at banquet now, i think they will keep her identity.

For sure both clans will be curious who cook the unique and delicious meals at banquet.

 

Will Grand Queen Dowager suspect Queen helping King as she already eaten meals cooked by Queen?

Is this why Kim Jwa-Geun meet Queen?

 

Love how So Bong gave perfect fitting names for all her dishes and with that alone King was able to come up with a perfect way to describe the meaning behind each meals.

 

They are match in heaven.

I see that like me, many people are quite conflicted between So Bong and So Yong, and who ultimately Cheol-jong loves and may/ may not end up with.

 

Perhaps having SB's "soul" in her has not erased SY's existence. Having SB's personality was a way for SY to grow to become her real self, in teaching her to live with courage and humour. Perhaps with the loss of SB's voice, what we are seeing is a gradual departure of SB, SY's growth, giving up her false self (like she said she wanted in her red embroidery) and reclaiming of her real self.

 

Perhaps the best way for the drama to end is to have all the pieces go back to original. SB back to his body and SY back to hers, but both of them growing through the experience. And SY helping CJ to grow too. SB really needed to be less cocky, more understanding of the people around him, and also less of a playboy (aka, devoted to one person).

 

Except that in history, neither Cheoljoing nor Cheorin had a good ending. So I would love it if they were saved from their miserable puppet existence and go to modern Korea. But yes yes, this is supposed NOT to be related to the historical figures. So a Park Bo Gum "Love in the Moonlight" ending that is divorced from history.

I'm still amazed by the menu "invented" by the Queen and the description given by the King.  Did the Queen really referred to the guideline discussed by the King and the Royal Chef?  Everything looks delicious ...:approves:

Kim Jung Hyun was phenomenal in this episode. He’s been amazing since the start but he got more opportunity to show it fully in episode 12. Shin Hye Sun is so charismatic she can easily overshadow her leading man, but luckily for her (and for us) Kim Jung Hyun is at the same level. 
 

Everyone is swooning over him on Twitter :heart: Can you imagine anyone else playing this dual role?

 

I’m impressed by KJH and Na In Woo. It looks like they filmed that fan fighting mostly by themselves. That fight was supremely cool, both of them did a great job though of course I cheered for my king when he kicked the cousin’s butt :grin:

For now, only King's friend are aware about the explosion weapon, the one who use sniper. Since other arw shocked during the shooting demonstratiin about the sniper/rifle. He also kinda inspect the table before he see the mask guy. So me think the explosion is the king idea. But for what.. i dont have any idea.

 

But i think the concubine will have another misunderstand with Sobong. Maybe she think Sobong is behind the explosion since she smell the oil. I dunu maybe she misunderstand about other thing also. 

 

About the food, we did not see the kwing fortunw right? I rwally want to know what sobong choose for his fortune:fullofhearts:

OK, finally watched the episode. Been reading all your comments and tbh, this forum keeps me sane while waiting for the next episode. I love reading everyone's comments, theories, and of course any news related to our favourite show. 

 

I am seething with anger at how unjust the situation is! The King is fighting against so many people and there's no one by his side. Everyone's out to get him! How could the royal concubine who professes to love him be so blinded by jealousy that she committed the cardinal sin. You literally gave a deathly blow to all his aspirations, woman! You, as good as killed him. What happened to supporting the man you love through thick and thin? (The actress does a phenomenal job, of course, for instilling so much rage and hatred against her.:D)

 

 

My heart was breaking to see the King being reduced to a puppet again, the humiliation that he was subjected to! I felt so anguished. The unfairness of the whole thing! One man against so many, all the more it is disturbing because you don't even know who is the enemy, as has been proven by Hwa Jin.

 

I do not feel he plotted it himself. But rather I feel this is done by Grand Queen Dowager and her brother Jwa-geun. I felt myself seething with anger as he humiliated the King in front of all, ambushing him, rendering him powerless, literally getting him on his knees! Oh such humiliation! The tears pieced my heart ! His earnest prayer to the almighty to help him! Gosh, KJH gave me goosebumps! He totally outshined SHS , which is an impossibility, seeing how brilliant she is, but he just brought the King alive with his 'daebak' acting. I think no other word can do justice to how brilliantly he portrayed the King in the latest episode, especially the last few scenes.   KJH, take a bow, man! :wub:You were phenomenal!

 

That last scene has reduced everything into oblivion for me because when I think of the episode, I can only think of the King, his emotions, his helplessness, his anguish... Sorry SHS, I love the show and your antics were the reason why I started the show and they kept me glued to it, however, forgive me for saying, KHJ just stole the show.

 

A standing applause to the entire team of Mr. Queen. Every cog in the wheel deserves all the praise and success. Thank you for such a fantastic, such a memorable show. Thank you for keeping us entertained week after week. Looking forward to the future episodes with bated breath. It's a torture waiting for the weekend and then wishing, it would go fast, so that I an catch the subbed episodes. Thanks to our 'cutie, sexy, innocent' cheoljong being in a such a critical state, I have not been able to focus on anything. And, I feel, this will be a constant state till the next weekend. :tears: Getting nothing done, except logging in to the forum a million times to read an update. :tears: Cheoljong, quit playing games with our hearts (Backstreet Boys style), our hearts are not strong to see you like you.

Mr Queen isn’t even over and I’m already longing to see our leads together in a modern drama. Kim Jung Hyun himself said he would like to be cast with Shin Hye Sun again. From what I can see he has great respect for her as an actress. It’s also cute they both like to chew bubblegum (they both chewed it in today’s IG live stream). People started to call their offscreen ship “Bubblegum couple.”


Gosh, they’re so cute I want to pinch their cheeks!

This person made a beautiful fanvid imagining our royal couple in the modern world. It’s so well edited!

I'm a bit curious about Bong Wan and his mum relationship. When the queen delirious after acupuncture, he keep saying that his mom always wanted a daughter not son? And he said are you happy now mum? The king heard this and thinking that the queen missed her mother (the queen lost her mother at very young age).

I agree with this comment from the Mydramalist comments section LOL

https://mydramalist.com/58365-queen-cheorin

Not matter either the Queen is So Yong or So Bong, she always cares for her King:bawling:

Quote

Out of his 5 wives, only the queen ran to him.

The first thing he should do the moment he wakes up is to prepare 4 divorce letters.

 

Hwa Jin said before that she entered the palace because she want to help the king, right?

But I don't really can recalled the help that she did so far. She given the ledger to queen dowager instead the king and doesn't rush to see his condition after the explosion accident. I means when Kim's clan want to behead her, the king willing to kneel down and begs for her! 

It seems she is more obsessing to put the queen down rather than helping the king that she claimed she love:expressionless:
