Also, what's with the K-dramas, turning the second ML into vilest of villains? Is that the only way to eliminate competition? I am fervently hoping ,Mr . Queen would not follow suit. Byeong-in, please don't become a vile villain. Just give up gracefully, don't make me hate you.

 

Actually in my experience of watching Korean romance drama whether in historical time or modern time, usually it is the second female lead that turn into the villain.

 

While for the second male lead, whether at the beginning he is the jerk type of guy or already sweet type of guy, he will be so sweet and become a knight in the shining armor for the main female lead. He sacrificed everything and some second male lead especially in Korean historical romance drama even died while protecting the main female lead.

That's where the term "second lead syndrome" for Korean drama come from. But the second male lead here really annoyed me because he is soo delusional just like the second female lead.

 

Our king confession to his queen is so sweet aww

I'm happy that our queen accepted her feeling and started to seduce her king next week but I want she confess about her feeling to him through words like he did at least once huhu:tears:

wow - I forget this is a 20 eps drama - I'm quite upset that the little girl had to die, but again the sad event was needed as a catalyst [especially for the queen].

I don't think she's dead. The king is going to have to start a village for exiled servants who have to leave the palace.

Even though their first night was chaster than I expected I really liked the way So Bong grabbed Cheoljong’s neck.

She’s so passionate when it to comes to skinship, it’s so refreshing to see a female lead who looks like she’s actually enjoying touching and kissing her love interest. Some female leads lay like a corpse and I always cringe when a male lead has to do all the work. 
 

I hope we’ll get to see another intimate scene where both So Bong and Cheoljong are sober and where So Bong really wants to be with Cheoljong. Cheoljong has been pining over So Bong for several episodes, so I wouldn’t mind watching So Bong long for him instead.

 

Also both Shin Hye Sun and Kim Jung Hyun looked so beautiful and dreamy during this tender scene I didn’t know who to swoon over first!

@enzekRight you are! That's why my chosen username. I fall for the SML more than the ML:tears:. I like the SML here, there was something similar to a courtly love, a knight pining for the love of the Queen. But he seems to be turning viler by the day.

 

Also, sorry for being daft here, so having ramyan is an innuendo for sex? I am new to Kdramas and I think there was a reference to the same in My Id is Gangnam Beauty. I think it was. My bad! I never really understood the subtle reference.

 

Dying to watch the episode 14. Please hurry and sub.

I can't believe that a Chef from 2020 and a King from Joseon Dynasty are the best couple of 2021, i love their interactions so much!

Oh yeah, “Do do want to eat ramyun with me” is an euphemism for “Do you want to have sex with me” if I put it bluntly. It’s been a k-drama trope as long as I remember (I’ve been watching k-dramas over 10 years).

 

But usually this sentence is said by an innocent female lead who doesn’t know a dirty meaning behind it, so it always makes a male lead blush, cough, stutter, and so on.

 

Actually, our king, Kim Jung Hyun, explained this in his previous drama Crash Landing On You. It was one of the cutest scene he had in that drama :cutekitty:

To be honest the second male lead here is more delusional than the second female lead that it is so ridiculous. 

 

Hwa Jin has a more reasonable reason why she upset and angry about the king affection to queen although she lied to him that she was his savior. At the beginning, the king said that he doesn't has any feeling towards the queen and she is also his trusted person. I means at least the king and Hwa Jin are in a relationship before he fallen for his queen even it was based on lie.

 

But for Byung In? So Yong totally rejected him before the she married the king and now after she get married she draw the line again so why Byung In become so delusional?:expressionless:

A woman/man inviting a man/woman a bowl of ramyun (instant noodle) is like "Netflix and Chill" in Korea.

Is Byung In delusional? I don't think so. His ambition is just greater than his feelings for the Queen, or he thinks he can still win her over, despite her rejection. That's not really delusional, but not getting over it bordering on obsession.

 

Whereas Hwa Jin literally blames Mr Queen for everything bad happening. Yeah she has hurt feelings because the King now seems to prefer Mr Queen instead of her, but also they are wife and husband in the eyes of the law and the country. 

 

Byung In and Hwa Jin both disrepect the royalty, but Hwa Jin does it far more often and blatantly, even just visiting the Queen's home without reason and then acting there as if that was her own house, and hitting her with the arrow, for example

hahahaha!! So hilarious this couple!

 

I bet after episode 15 Cheoljong will know, what the queen means when she asks him if he wants to eat ramyeon!:sipsboba: It will be something new to learn from his queen after all!

 

Cheoljong (I think he didn't really want to see her cry, she was teary-eyed) from saying

Kings do not lie (at Sobong's house gate) to his showing him crossing his fingers behind his back! The queen is also transforming the very proper king into something different entirely. :Pandabulous:

EP 14

 

Huh, when drama showed blind lady writing, it began with "queen," but when they showed the whole sentence, it began with "danger." I think the words even got messier when it was shown in full sentence.

 

I'm glad So Bong did see Cheol Jong during the act, even if s/he dismissed it. So Bong even pointed out later that s/he would have still liked it even if s/he knew it was Cheol Jong. Also, in preview, So Bong seems to quickly accept it and want to sleep with Cheol Jong again.

 

I believe the queen's body is only possessed by Jang Bong Hwan's soul, but the soul is adopting to So Yong's body, especially after her memories have returned, so that the soul would not be repelled from the body. In a sense, by accepting So Yong's physical body and memories, the soul has become bisexual and already comfortable with female physical body. It's fantasy, so I guess that works. S/he did really become "Jang So Yong."

 

I'm hoping Hong Yeon get rejected. I want the drama to show that both man and woman can get their feelings rejected. After all, Kim Hwan and Hong Yeon fell in love for exact same reason. The looks and small kindness. 

 

I think the bromance between Kim Hwan and Special Director Hong might win this love triangle. I mean they are minor characters, so I don't know if it will end as bromance or romance. These days, kdrama is ok as long as they are minor characters. That's why I'm happy about So Bong. S/he is technically trans bisexual at this point, and s/he is main character, the protagonist!

 

Prince Yeong Phyeong finally seems to figure out that something is up when he heard that the crime book was suspiciously found in queen's palace! Please let him find out about Jo Hwa Jin. One thing I am sure about Prince Yeong Phyeong is his stubborn strict moral code. I think that's why, unlike Kim Byeong In, he never crosses the line with Jo Hwa Jin. He is so frustrating because of that moral code, but i have to admit that it's pretty good moral code. That means i can count on Prince Yeong Phyeong to go against Jo Hwa Jin the moment he figured out that she crossed the line from his moral code. Sure, he will probably try to sway her first or want to hear the lies, but ultimately he will go against her.

 

In preview, Kim Byeong In figured out that Kim Jwa Geun tried to kill So Bong, and drama pointed out that Kim Byeong In is supposed to be very smart man, so he should figure out that grand queen dowager agreed with the plan. Please, let Kim Byeong In be at least a grudging ally!

 

There are so many enemies to fight. I really can't see King's allies winning unless they gain more allies like Kim Byeong In and Kim Hwan who also work in palace. Kim Hwan also seems to be talented, both intelligent (booksmart) and martial arts if the hints in the drama are correct. Kim Hwan said that he got into Joseon version top college at very young age, and he easily dodged trained palace bodyguards, only to be stopped by Cheol Jong.

 

I knew that lie signal is going to come back again! I hope Kim Byeong In helped with this plan. I don't think Cheol Jong could figure out a way to switch the poison that the young girl was supposed to drink. However, Kim Byeong In, who was in change, can easily switch it. It's obvious from Kim Byeong In's reaction toward So Bong that he also knows that young girl is innocent.

 

I'm still holding onto that young Kim Byeong In who helped young Cheol Jong to escape from the well. There is no point of adding him to that flashback when it could have easily been just So Yong rescuing Cheol Jong. The only reason to add Kim Byeong In is to foreshadow that he's going to be an ally.

 

At this point, So Yong is literally plot device for every characters. Jang Bong Hwan, Cheol Jong, Kim Byeong In, Jo Hwa Jin, and etc. From all the characters we have met, the least we know about is So Yong. She only appears as plot device for other characters. Her flashbacks are there to motivate and influence other characters, and now even her memories are no longer hers, but So Bong's, so that it will motivate and grow So Bong as a person.

 

Anyway, I can't wait for next week episodes! Please let there be more scene with So Bong and Cheol Jong together! Preview hints on some hot scenes including the scene where So Bong trying to sleep with Cheol Jong again, "do you want to eat ramen?" :lol:

I just finished episode 14 with subs and I have to say this was my favourite episode, I liked it even more than episode 9 which I ranked first until today.

 

If I have to write down everything I liked about this episode, it’d be a very long post! It was a very well balanced episode with plenty of laughter, politics, but also important moments between our royal couple.

 

But what struck me most in this episode was the reason Bo Song thought to herself when she rejected Cheoljong.

LFlxqEp.jpg
 

Can anybody tell me what So Bong meant by this? She can’t love Cheoljong back because she’s a man or because she feels guilty by taking So Yong’s place? I’m very intrigued by this!

 

I’m actually surprised So Bong admitted it to herself that she liked it with Cheoljong. She even said she liked it more than before. The way I see it she basically admitted that sex in a woman’s body with a man she was insanely attracted to was better than all the sex Jang Bong Hwan had with women. If anybody still think that Kim So Yong took over the body at that moment, I hope this is a proof that So Bong was still very much conscious.
 

I think the main problem won’t be So Bong’s sexuality crisis but the issue with their identity. It’s one thing to admit that you’re attracted to a man, but living like someone else for the rest of your life is something bigger. I think So Bong feels like a fraud, that’s why she can’t accept Cheoljong’s feelings for her.

 

Cheoljong’s confession also made it pretty clear which personality he likes - he likes Jang Bong Hwan. Even if she was the most flawed person in the world he will like her... Oh my heart...

i think sobong is feeling guilty for having feelings for cheoljong. the thing is i don't think she/he/they have it completely down what their identity is yet. they don't know if soyong is going to return completely, and if soyong returns what is she gonna do when she finds out the king is in love with not really her?

 

imo the writers are likely gonna go the both-of-them-are-one-soul way, it's just that sobong has yet to figure it out. bong hwan is definitely the more dominant er soul? in sobong but we've also seen how soyong has come into play in shaping sobong. bh/sobong has been the most protective of soyong thus far, evidently the most empathetic of her consider they knew everything she has been through. so i guess this "better safe than sorry" sentiment was voiced by bong hwan/sobong who still isn't sure what's going on. sorry for the bonghwans and soyongs and sobongs it's honestly a mess over here but i hope yall get the gist of what i'm saying HAHA

 

 

 

 

honestly this whole soyong and bong hwan thing is really sweet. last night i was thinking how soyong died because she felt like her life was a lie, that she had always been chasing someone else's dream. she lived her life in guilt, and never got to do what she really wanted to do. but with bong hwan coming into her life, i like to think that she's living her true self through bong hwan's audacity and self-confidence bordering on arrogance and we've seen both aspects of soyong and bonghwan living through sobong. think this also echoes a lot with some theories proposed by some users earlier on in this forum. but anyway i just thought it's something really sweet and i'm really glad she got her 2nd shot in life.

I agree with all you have said and particularly about sexual identity. You are right when you say she/he’s trans/ bisexual by now. I m amazed the writers addressed this issue in such away. I didn't think Korean viewers were ready for such a conflicting topic, but it seems they are. This plot reminds me of an old Argentinian tv series (2007) called ”Lalola”   https://www.google.com/search?kgmid=/m/04640jb&hl=en-CL&q=Lalola&kgs=57cdf44e59717a65&shndl=0&source=sh/x/kp/osrp&entrypoint=sh/x/kp/osrp in which the main character wakes up in a female body after being cursed by a woman in revenge for his womanizing behavior 

He also has to adjust to a female body, ends up surrendering to hormones, and even falls in love with a man. When I started watching Mr. Queen, I didn't think the story went that path because of the topic of sexual orientation, but I was mistaken. And now I highly hope So Bong really can accept and embrace his new body and be happy as a woman :love:

Man just when I thought I couldn’t love this drama more. I was a bit worried after the last episode, but I’m satisfied with how the events unfolded. Guess I’m not the only one  *cough cough* So Bong. Sorry I had to lol. 
Sometimes I can’t tell if Cheoljong is trolling her or not. He was really about to give her poetic retelling of what happened. I was actually interested in what he had to say. So the queen is trying to avoid the king ,but we know that’s not going to last long. In fact, I have a feeling that once So Bong recognizes and accepts her feeling, she won’t be able to keep her hands off Cheoljong. Now THAT, I want to see.

Finally...  

Looks like the King get something from his ancestor Bang Won.

If its the same line of kings at all.

 

 

TvN

 

Yup, Cheoljong is a direct descendant of Bang Won aka King Taejong. I love how Kim Jung Hyun portrays him here, his range is marvelous! From being pouty every time his queen turns him down to the strong and charismatic king in front of the court, he has it all!
