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!

I absolutely love So Bong for being so forward about her passion - she seems to have a thing for the king's neck - she grabbed it several times during their epic make-out session as well. 

you know, even in these "chaster" scenes you can feel the fire between - this is such a tease for the weekend lol 

I don't know why for the first time, I feel like, I'll wait patiently for the weekend and binge watch all the previous episodes multiple times if needed - esp ep 14. 

Cheoljong is my favourite character in this drama so far (So Bong is So Bong lol) - the way his character unfolded is just a joy to watch - he has a very very tragic situation with little to no power - he is someone who should be rightly paranoid and easy to control like how the evil JG predicted but he outgrows his fears and nightmares - he refuses to be a victim and tries his best to fight his way out. He is also very true to his own feelings as well as his cause - I really like how there's no unnecessary drama (at least till now) - about his "torn" feeling for the queen and the concubine - he's already made peace with the fact that so strong are his feelings for So Bong that no past love can compare or come nearer to them. I think part of this is because (like I mentioned in my earlier posts) Cheoljong feels free and alive whenever he's with So Bong - with everyone else there's always something "expected" from him. With the queen, it's just his own interest in figuring out who she is as a person (once he figured out she's no longer a threat). 

I am really amazed how progressive Cheoljong is - it's quite normal to misunderstand your enemy's intentions, after all, they are the enemies for a very good reason (the Kim clan) but he goes over and above to properly understand So Bong - and he surprisingly does! I mean look at his confession! He speaks all the truths - that So Bong is selfish, rough, inconsistent etc etc. but still he likes her, even with all the flaws in the world, he would still like her. This is indeed "soulmate" love - you accept and yearn for the real person instead of some flawed illusion you make of them. (*cough cough*)

I'm also glad the king's brother wasn't too much of a trouble in ep 14 - he also unknowingly helped them consummate (if he interrupted the couple that night - the king probably would have been too worried for it)

Also, I think, the royal couple make a good pair because they don't have any resentment or built up frustrations regarding each other - they vent it out (although it's their servants who take the brunt of it most times) - they yell and argue with each other and more importantly, you have a husband who listens to everything his wife has to say!

So Bong, thus far has not really paid attention to the king, the way the king has been paying attention to her. Given that she is in fact a playboy - her crisis is understandable but I think it's the first time she's emotionally invested in someone (the king) - without the need to woe, she was free to actually look at Cheoljong as a person and appreciate him as a person (probably without knowing it herself) - that's why she was so shaken when the bomb exploded - she loves him but has not understood what "love" is because until now she never experienced it. That's why she think their hot night was better than her/his earlier ones. In ep 14, she more or less accepted that it's Cheoljong that "she" has feelings for - that was again wonderful to watch because she's not in denial that their night was bad but unable to come to terms that it was so good. 

I'm so torn between waiting for ep 15 and not wanting this drama to end. I still have lot of analysis and commentary, will keep posting when I get time. Glad to have an outlet for my own overwhelming feelings about this drama lol

I'd like to mention this .. I was surprised that the GD Queen's royal maid cum masseur is on the King's side.   I thought she was just one of those maids.   

And how the King now saying it .... "My Queen"
                                                                             :heartxoxo:



And these two - so cute  - chu chu chu chu

Can someone enlighten me of what JBH means with his sex life/experience on bed before was like a piece of soft bread but now is $@&/?;&??? :coolshades: Asking for a friend....


Hahaha... ehm... Ok, if anybody wants to stay innocent, look away! Last warning!

 

Spoiler

LOL, I might get it wrong but basically when So Bong was a man he was the “hard one”.

 

But now when So Bong is in a woman’s body... her body is soft.. and Cheoljong is the one who’s... making a hole into a soft bread :shaq:

And @cenching  I wanted to ask too but dare not.... Love you too for asking.

 

 


I know this has been shared many times.. but I just cannot stop replaying King saying Aumn all the time:D  I believe he wants MORE :naughty:  And those expressions on the maids, eunuch and royal chef (kudos to them and the PD) :D

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...


My take on why SoBong said she can’t accept CheolJong’s love is because she feels like a fraud since she’s not SoYong. In the first place she’s already having an identity crisis of being a macho man who loves woman to a mega woman a Queen who loves her King hopelessly. JBH is holding tight but helplessly on his identity as a straight man and person from the future.

 

 I was laughing my derrière off when I watched her monologue on how she likes the sex with CheolJong. 
 

Next week we will see their prowess as The Power Couple in battling the big bad Palace baddies and between the sheets...:omg:

 

I think the writers are trolling us with the ramyeon scene. Most likely we will get a literal ramyeon mukbang....:onfirex:

 

@aisling

SoBong should have uses a soft sandwich as an analogy then....:coolshades:

I also think they’re trolling us and there won’t be anything sexy going on. But I’ll take any scene with Kim Jung Hyun and Shin Hye Sun, whether it’s sad, intense, funny or swoony. There are only 6 episodes left and I’m sure the angst is coming, so I want more OTP moments before all the hell breaks loose. 
 

You know what I’d find extremely funny? So Bong basically rejected Cheoljong with “There’s no future for us.” What if she will try to seduce him later but Cheoljong will ignore all her efforts as he will try to respect her wish and keep his distance? That’d be funny as hell! So Bong trying her best to seduce her husband LOL.

 

Yeah, I also found it extremely funny how So Bong spent half of the episode pondering how much she liked it with Cheoljong :Megalol:

If they follow GPG then SoBong is basically addicted to her husband’s touches AFTER the first time and trying to seduce him to bed repeatedly hence the conceiving of The Crown Prince....:coolshades:

 

Well, since she spent half of the episode pondering about how good is CheolJong in bed maybe.....:onfirex:

 


add. 
Btw, it’s obvious for us that despite the identity crisis SoBong does loves CheolJong, deep down. For me there’s no SoYong anymore, she’s positively dead in the bottom of the lake. I just don’t know how the drama going to addresses this situation.

 

Also CheolJong is totally in love with SoBong despite the constant denial and rejection from SoBong. Why CheolJong is so persistent? It’s because he knows that SoBong loves him too. He is a smart cookie. CheolJong also understands or misunderstands SoBong’s situation. He thought SoBong can’t loves him back openly because of what he did in the past and because of The Royal Snake. 

 

At least in the future episodes there will be plenty of time to fill those holes.

Okay. For this week episode 14 become my favorite episode so far, I like all from beginning till the end. We never guessed it right for the ending, two thumbs up to the writer-nim. But please don't give us such a 'membong' nor 'suck' ending ever...

Why I like episode 14?

(1) CJ actually want to ask why SB help him and would betray him, but actually CJ already changed to his sleeping robe? [Does that only an excuse to ask your brother leave you alone with your wife, CJ?]

(2) CJ was the one who came to kiss SB first. Maybe in ep 9, he kissed SB to save himself, but now he just kissed her first, even though PDnim not let us happy to show how beautiful the kiss was. [CJ, this time you're sober and no need to pretend]

(3) SB the one who untie his robe and he let her. Actually I need CJ to untie SB's hair because SB really looks stunning with her hair like that.

(4) CJ who looks almighty in front of his ministries lately, but still in front SB, he looks so cute. And he explained like SB asked him to. Seriously CJ who's so fierce was the same CJ who looks so tamed in from of his wife.

(5) CJ described SB like tigress in their hot night

Spoiler

Suddenly I remember the novel or webdrama version, they showed how hot their night was. The Empeeor has many hickey marks because of The Empress, and also described how The Empress actually want to be on the top. Sorry for my pervert memories about the novel. But PDnim and writernim ever said that they will not vulgar like the novel nor the webdrama.

(6) SB's denial. That's so funny how she said in the like, when SB accepted SY's memories, she lost JBH, JBH has disappeared.

(7) CJ's's love confession. Seriously that's so sweet. Because you have many flaws, I like you. [I need to ask Google how to get one man like CJ. LoL]

(8) SB mentioned about the night before she did suicide. That hit CJ hardly. How he misunderstood SY's request before he tried to understand the reason behind. That time he only saw SY as one of his enemy, and he never tried to understand SY, how SY want to be his strength, how SY want to protect him. And then SB said right, the one who CJ hurt not there so there's no 'anymore'.

Spoiler

This scene actually made me remember one scene of webdrama. When The Emperor asked The Empress to believe that The Emperor love her and want her to believe that The Emperor would protect her forever. But the Empress said that man's promises were something that couldn't to believe.

(9) How CJ so worried about 'My Queen' - oh really curious. Did CJ always add "My" not only said "Queen"? - but honestly his brother's looks when it said that the ledger found in SB's room, hhhhmmm feel something not good about that looks.

Spoiler

As I remember in webdrama and novel, there will be The Emperor's brother who likes his Concubine also join hand to do something bad because he really loved the Concubine, but later he didn't do that because he couldn't hurt his own brother.

So I have something weird about this Prince YP, maybe he will do something bad to our Queen, indirect hurt his own brother because of his love to concubine.

(10) When CJ & SB in SB's room. SB hold his hands and asked to save DH. That moment, I love it. [KJH and SHS were great actor actress indeed, without words only simple body language, they could make us feel their love]

(11) Their secret signal language. That's epic. And I really love it.

 

For the preview, I really excited to waiting this weekend. SB finally showed who the real owner of inner Court, not only to Great Queen Dowager, but also to Queen Dowager, also that fool Concubine HJ..

 

Really want to see CJ finally realize the real meaning "I will be your strength and your ally in Palace"

As I remember that fool Concubine ever said that she would help the king to get his goal, but what she has done? Nothing. NATO [No Action Talk Only]

But this time let CJ see how SB not only talk about to be his ally, but SB do what she can do to be worth as CJ's ally.

Thank you @maria_m2me for sharing your "feel" and the GPG recap - interesting! 
Still feel excited reading it, despite reading so many others' views and seeing the gifs!   

Yup, according to the sub,  the King did exclaim .. MY QUEEN, which I find it so endearing. 

And below, he literally ran all over the palace to hunt for her.  Poor his Eunuch could not even catch up with him.

there's no doubt that - lol he's proving himself to be more and more competent by each episode in every sphere - I guess those R-rated books were of some help :gangnamstyle:

this had me in stitched lmao 

 

About So Yong - I'm not sure where I stand right now but I want some sort of closure/justice for her - her love for CJ was indeed pure and true - and I'm sure that influenced So Bong's feelings for the King - it's a tricky situation and I can understand why So Bong feels so conflicted - the lake scene where So Yong goes down must sort of symbolically mean that it's So Bong's game now - that So Yong is no longer in the picture. I hope So Bong gets a successful resolution otherwise she wouldn't be happy even if she was together with the king, the imposter feeling will always keep nagging her.

I love this tame, puppy side of CJ lol - also I keep thinking CJ always uses "business" as an excuse with his brother to go meet the queen and he's always so insistent that he must get those answers at once or some other reason lol you poor love-sick Cheoljong lol

Btw, do you think that Prince YeongPyeong is a traitor in the making??? He hates SoBong with passion and loves HwaJin with equal passion.

 

He didn’t inform CheolJong that SoBong is in danger from Kim Clan. He has never approved of CheolJong’s love for SoBong despite SoBong had proven herself over and over again that she’s on CheolJong’s side. 
 

Now that CheolJong’s openly loving SoBong and what My Queen wants, My Queen gets attitude, he must be burning with angers inside. Not to mention CheolJong has been neglecting HwaJin and never consummated their marriage. I suspect HwaJin must had said something during CheolJong mummy stage because he started to gives her cold shoulder after that.

I think most of us loved episode 14 because there were more scenes of our OTP compared to last weekend (and lesser scenes of the concubine and the cousin).
 

Their bed scene was hot.

Spoiler

IhORT9Q.jpg

 

Her denial and hide-and-seek wacky and funny.

Spoiler

b2ywc1x.jpg

 

His confession heart-fluttering.

Spoiler

Her rejection heartbreaking.

Spoiler

And their face-off in the last scene fierce.

Spoiler

O3qYwLK.jpg

 

But if I have to pick my two favourite scenes of our OTP, it were actually the tender and subtle ones.

 

1) The first one when SB was hiding behind the screen. He knew she was there and after the chase through the palace I thought he was going to confront her... but he actually said this instead.

I don’t know if anybody else found it very romantic as well. The king would wait... until she was ready to contact him first. He’s the king of the nation but he will wait for So Bong  because he cherishes her so much. I think this scene made he swoon so much thanks to Kim Jung Hyun’s brilliant performance, he looked so much in love it touched my heart. I can tell from his acting how his feelings for his queen progressed gradually.
 

At first he was intrigued and bewildered. Then he started to feel physical attraction. Later he started to appreciate her honesty and bluntness. And then he was moved by her actions. And all those feelings culminated in his tender expression during this scene. I mean, Cheoljong is an extraordinary man. Not because he’s the king but because of his qualities as a human being. He cares so much about his men and common people (as he lived like a commoner before he became the king), he’s remarkably smart and intelligent. He’s strong even though he’s going through the nightmares every day and every night. He’s loyal and compassionate, but knows how to stand his ground against his enemies. Does So Bong realise she gained the heart of someone as exceptional as Cheoljong?

 

2) The second scene was when So Bong grabbed his hand and begged him to save Dam Hyang. The look on his face when she touched him. He’s so in love that even a simple touch startled him... At that moment I knew he would promise her anything she wanted. And the way he rubbed her hand gently and reassuringly made me knees went weak. When he confessed to her he used the word “like” but I think at this point he’s beyond liking her. He’s completely and utterly in love with her.

Hi everyone! I'm not sure whether there's a reply or post about how the King address the Queen here but I figured I'll just share it since there's been questions about it.

 

Cheoljong (actually all Joseon kings in sageuk) addresses the Queen as 중전 (jung jeon) which literally means 'Queen', without a possessive pronoun 'my' like in English translation. As a King, he is of higher rank than the Queen, that's why he only uses jung jeon, without the honorific title of 마마 (ma ma) which means 'your highness'. Same goes for the dowager queens, they address sobong as jung jeon since they're of higher rank as seniors/elders in the inner court. Aside from those three, every one else are the Queen's subordinates (palace maids, eunuchs, etc) so they must address her as jung jeon ma ma or just ma ma.

 

I guess English translators use 'my queen' when a King call his queen for seamless translation and to better relate to the target audience, in this case international fans.

 

The only time Cheoljong called sobong 'my queen' was in sobong's dream when they're in that bath house (?), he said 나의 중전, 나의 (na ye) literally means 'my'.

Now that CheolJong’s openly loving SoBong and what My Queen wants, My Queen gets attitude, he must be burning with angers inside. Not to mention CheolJong has been neglecting HwaJin and never consummated their marriage. I suspect HwaJin must had said something during CheolJong mummy stage because he started to gives her cold shoulder after that.
 

I want to give him the benefit of doubt - unlike the queen's cousin - he has not made any move thus far despite his misgivings - he never fabricated or misled the king regarding the queen - so I just hope it's his genuine concern about the enemy mixed with mistrust and suspicion and a soft spot for the concubine - but I don't see him taking any action on his own 

 

@aisling love all your posts! and especially this last one about the king's qualities and the royal couple's moments - and yes, he was quite taken when So Bong grabbed his hand! Like he couldn't believe it! lol he's so adorable lol and the other moment when he says he'll wait for her to come to him - I loved that scene too! A man who knows how to wait is a worthy one indeed lol (not quoting the actual post as I'm lazy to remove the gifs :sweat_smile: and don't want to burden the moderators as well)
