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.

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.

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:

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

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:

 

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

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:

 

you know, I think, CJ will not be able to resist the queen once she starts her hunt 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

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

Spoiler

His confession heart-fluttering.

Her rejection heartbreaking.

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.

spacer.png

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'.

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)

Call me a romantic but I’d like to think that soyong exists in the time when she goes to the king to ask him to save damhyang( much like herself in her youth) and of course during sexy times... since bonghwan always wakes up shocked... so technically the king is falling in love with soyong as well...

thats how I’m going to reconcile it in my mind...

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.

 

When I saw EP14, I felt the opposite. We get a scene where Prince Yeong Phyeong feels something off about queen having the crime book. The expression is of something wrong. It's like he's having a thought that someone purposely put a trap for the queen. Even though drama didn't show the flashback, i'm hoping he was remembering Jo Hwa Jin trying to give him a book, but didn't in the end.

 

Prince Yeong Phyeong is a strict moral code guy who possibly could be more passionate about king gaining back his power for the nation than king Cheol Jong himself. He probably will be disappointed and feel betrayed if he finds out about what Jo Hwa Jin has done. I mean he will emotionally struggle, but it's more likely that he will expose Jo Hwa Jin than hurt his half-brother, who is technically Prince Yeong Phyeong's life goal (making Cheol Jong into a great king).

 

I have seen Prince Yeong Phyeong empathizing with Jo Hwa Jin a lot, but when it comes to the queen So Bong, it's all about business. He is worried about So Bong being a clever enemy who is tricking Cheol Jong.  He is desperate and paranoid that So Bong will ruin all their plans to gain back king's power. Even though he's frustrating, he's being practical and it's very understandable situation for him with his disadvantages, especially since it's hard to change your mind when you hardly interact with queen yourself.

I suspect HwaJin must had said something during CheolJong mummy stage because he started to gives her cold shoulder after that.

 

Not really, EP 14 actually showed the opposite. Besides, he never hated So Bong with passion. I'm not sure if he loves Hwa Jin with passion either. Definitely nothing compared to Kim Byeong In.

 

From his perspective, he's being practical and pessimistic when it comes to queen. Cheol Jong was extremely lucky that it was So Yong and Bong Hwan who became the queen. I mean when it comes to Bong Hwan, Prince Yeong Phyeong is half right. Most Kim clan are evil and do wrongdoing all the times. They literally killed his family. Prince Yeong Phyeong and Cheol Jong were lucky to survive. It makes sense for him to think that Kim clan would have put their ally in the queen position. It's pretty logical to think that queen could be acting kind and sweet trying to steal Cheol Jong's heart to control him.

 

If Jo Hwa Jin actually thinks like Prince Yeong Phyeong, she probably wouldn't be queen dowager Jo's puppet right now.

 

Prince Yeong Phyeong did inform Cheol Jong that So Bong is in danger. The nurse lady didn't magically figured out king's secret training ground. Prince Yeong Phyeong said "it could be a trap, so we shouldn't tell him right away." Like always, he's being practical and pessimistic. It's obvious that he made sure it wasn't trap by meeting the spy, blind nurse palace lady. Prince Yeong Phyeong will always choose Cheol Jong's safety over So Bong's. To be honest, I won't blame him for it. He's literally king's royal bodyguard. He's doing his job.

 

When Prince Yeong Pyeong was most emotional and angry, it was when he thought Cheol Jong was being swayed by evil So Bong. Prince Yeong Phyeong was more angry at the fact that queen will control the king and ruin their plan than king loving the queen instead of Jo Hwa Jin. Sure, he was upset about Jo Hwa Jin being neglected and empathized with her. However, I never saw Prince Yeong Phyeong being mad at Cheol Jong for not sleeping with Jo Hwa Jin. Prince Yeong Phyeong was more focused on the crime book than Jo Hwa Jin.

 

Most importantly, just like Cheol Jong, Prince Yeong Phyeong never deeply talks about their plans to Jo Hwa Jin. He didn't tell her exactly what Cheol Jong was doing in queen's home (finding crime book), even though he knew how much Jo Hwa Jin was upset and worried about it. That alone shows me what is more important to Prince Yeong Phyeong.

 

I don't know which person Prince Yeong Phyeong likes more. Cheol Jong or Jo Hwa Jin?

But i believe Prince Yeong Phyeong's top priority is neither of them.

His top priority is creating a powerful king who cares for his people and nation.

As I watched again episode 14 with my mother language, in preview for next episode, Prince YP said that BI control Jo Clan. Why he could think like that? °curious°

What will he get from that maid? That maid was a maid from Queen's aula right?

And also in preview when he accompanied The King to follow the Queen, why he acted like that? He still distrust The Queen became King's ally.

 

Suddenly I have the feeling. For saving SH, maybe The King and BI joint hand together. Maybe The King told to BI that his father and Great Queen Dowager wanted to kill the Queen?

Curious how The King could help DH?

DH really likes Queen's own children. If BI wanted The Queen's happiness, he should agree to save DH's life right?

 

As I remember from novel version, their first child was a daughter and then the second one was a son.

Tonight when we watched episode 14, my mom said maybe later The Queen got pregnant, but their child should not be a son. If that's a son, both of them could be killed by Kim Clan.

I don’t think Kim So Yong even knew Dam Hyang. Didn’t So Bong meet DH for the first time when she entered the kitchen? Kim So Yong probably never put her foot in the royal kitchen.

 

We still don’t know where So Yong’s soul is. This drama is very different from other “souls swap” dramas because it has showed us only one soul, we don’t know what happened to the other.
 

At this point when there are only six episodes left I can only see two logical explanations:

 

1) Jang Bong Hwan is the reincarnation of Kim So Yong. Souls have no gender. You can be born as a woman in this life, but as a man in the next one. What matters is the soul inside. Thus in the future timeline the chef’s body was dying (his head was bleeding), but in the past the queen’s body didn’t sustain any serious injuries. Because of those two incidents happening at the same moment, the soul slipped into a less injured body in order to live on (the chef wanted to live on desperately). 
 

Of course this is only a fantasy drama but the writers ought to make rules that are narratively acceptable! This is why some dramas are masterpieces while other garbages. If the writers can’t convey their messages or can’t explain logically why things are happening as they’re happening, then the majority of audience will be confused or unsatisfied.

 

There must be a connection between Jang Bong Hwan and Kim So Yong. Must be. You can’t randomly put one soul to someone’s body without any explanation, there is ALWAYS some kind of bond. WHY it was Jang Bong Hwan and not any other soul that got the chance to live on? And why the soul slipped into Kim So Yong’s body? Why not any other body? Also WHY would the writer elaborate Kim So Yong’s background and childhood connection with Cheoljong if she wasn’t important? The only logical explanation would be that JBH and KSY are the same soul. The Joseon queen and the 21st century chef are the same soul and regardless the gender they both fell for Cheoljong. That’s the poetic stuff Koreans love, don’t they?

 

There was a talk about reincarnation and alternative universes in one of the episodes.

E7eS0Bd.jpg
 

aUPKK0q.jpg

 

2) The other explanation that makes less sense but might work with some smart writing is this: Jang Bong Hwan was supposed to be born as a woman originally. But because of some circumstances JBH was born as a man. There was this moment that made me think of this explanation:

tz7j3ip.jpg

 

Personally I don’t find this explanation satisfactory, but it’s still better than pushing Jang Bong Hwan out of the whole story and make Kim So Yong came back to reap the harvest of Jang Bong Hwan’s work! That would make NO SENSE. Jang Bong Hwan is the main character of this story and if Kim So Yong came back for the last episode to live happily ever after with Cheoljong, then Mr Queen would be the last drama the writers would ever write because no one would hire them again.

Tbh, I am totally clueless in how the way they will give us a satisfactory explanation regarding JBH/KSY. But one thing I am 90% sure, KSY won’t be back because she’s positively dead in the bottom of the lake. She chose that path and there’s no turning back. In last week episodes, the drama made it clear that it was JBH the whole time, KSY never took over even once. The thought of KSY took over is only JBH’s wishful thinking in order to deny his own feelings. 

 

KSY and JBH is a totally different person. CheolJong falls for JBH NOT KSY. KSY is a Joseon era woman who won’t be as outrageous and brazen as JBH. She was bred for the throne. CheolJong attracted to JBH’s personality in KSY’s body. IF she does comes back, CheolJong will grows cold.

 

The only time we were given information about KSY as a person was when JBH asked her maid and her replied was basically telling us that KSY was an arrogant proud noble woman who won’t hesitate to flogged and killed those whose offended her in the slightest. Just like Kim Clan in general.

I’ve been hyping Mr Queen on Twitter that I forgot to post here about Ep13 & Ep14. 
We’re are back to romcom genre hahaha. This drama rollercoaster emotion is just amazing, actually my heart cannot handle it anymore! in a good way! EHEK

 

Can we conclude for now Ep14 is the best episode ever hahaha!!!! 

 

Wanna point out Jang So Yong ornament on next preview (pfffttt) for Ep15.

*isn’t it too much HAHA but we don’t know her intention ! Well, Soyong look sexy and fierce with that black hanbok and red lipstick. Totally ready to fight with someone LOL!

 

 

Soyong looks so powerful here! Her head full of ornament is the main MVP hahaha

That little girl was a show stealer today! She is so adorable. My heart shattered into pieces when they evil clan members were out to punish her and were baying for her blood! How low will they stoop for power and to fulfill their greed? I hope the alliance between the King and the Queen sets things right. The corruption has gone for too long. These evil men make my blood boil!:rage: They have no loyalty. They are just guided by their ambition and greed, their unquenchable thirst for power. Kim Jwa-geun is such a snake! Nothing seems to debilitate him! :rage:Taking out his anger on the Queen and then on an innocent child! You'd rot in Hell, mister! :rage:

 

Another scene that stuck with me was how the King readily embraced the Queen near the lake. No hesitation unlike the one he experienced while Hwa Jin embraced him. He seemed hesitant to return her embrace. But while embracing the Queen, I love how he readily embraces her, although our mad hat Queen held herself back, quite resolutely IMO.  Also, is it just my imagination or did the King really look crestfallen when our Queen told him that she could/ would never forgive him? I just want the Queen to return the King's embrace. I think that would be a big thing as it would imply acceptance on part of the Queen.

 

Finally, I loved to see how the subtle gesture on part of the Queen affected our King so much. When she took his hands in hers and begged him to save the life of that little girl. I loved how the camera zoomed to their entwined hands. The King seemed to find the Queen's reliance on him , the way she put her trust in him to safe the child, made my heart swoon. Though she was probably unaware of the effect that small gesture had on him, it seemed to fill our King with hope. I think every husband wants his wife to rely on him and The Queen did so quite unknowingly, putting her trust in her husband to save the child. I thought it was a heart-touching moment.

 

I am little worried about the courtier plan to prove the King to be incompetent and set up a Defense Council to control him. Does not forebode well for our King. And lastly, what is Byeong-in plan when he realizes that snake of his adopted father tried to kill the love of his life. Will he come to senses and stand united with the King or will he continue with his misguided plans of 'protecting' the Queen from the King. (You have started to exasperate me, Byeong-in. He's is one of those men who you think would make amazing boyfriends but after dating him for sometime, they start to exasperate you ):lol::crazy::P

 

P.S. Thank you all for the GIFs and images, especially of His Royal Hotness in Black! When he is looking like that, how can you not be seduced? Yes, I am very shallow. :tears: He looks super dashing in everything. No wonder the Queen is having a tough time  controlling her 'tigress' urges. I love how KJH makes those transitions from those puppy eyes, chasing his Queen, absolutely smitten by her hot and cold behaviour to dishing out justice and teaching those evil courtiers a lesson. (That's the secret mantra, I believe. Keeping them guessing.:D Then there is never a dull moment. )

 

Looking forward to the seduction.

 

Thank you @kdramagrandma, @aisling and @enzek for enlightening me. My heartfelt gratitude to @cenchingfor asking such a life-changing question. It didn't even strike me till you asked for your friend. Khamsamnida chingus!
