Woohoo! Another crack drama! :1646639759_ezgif.com-gif-maker(1):
 

Just completed the first 4 episodes on Netflix and I am officially hooked! I love the sudden turn of events between the two main leads. And I especially love the anger and feeling of betrayal that will fuel Kang Hee-So’s revenge against King Lee In. I can only imagine how painful it will be when he learns the truth about who she really is and she learns the convoluted reasons behind why he did what he did to take the throne, which went against everything that she knew him to be.

 

In the meantime, I’m going to sit back and continue loving this drama. :fullofhearts:

Captivating the King: Episodes 3-4

by mistyisles

 

We knew this time would come, but boy does it hit hard. Our heroes — and, to be fair, their enemies in turn — suffer one terrible blow after another. By the end of these two episodes, our characters, their relationships, and the kingdom they call home have all been changed forever.

 
EPISODES 3-4

 

The long-awaited mongwoo arrives, but Myung-ha interrupts Hee-soo and Jin-han’s meeting. Myung-ha claims “Mong-woo” (the only name by which Jin-han knows Hee-soo, whom he still believes to be a man) promised to play baduk with him today, and since he’s holding her secret over her, Hee-soo can’t contradict him. Jin-han can tell something’s off, but takes Mong-woo’s word for it and leaves, more than a little jealous that Myung-ha knows more about Mong-woo than he does.

Myung-ha scolds Hee-soo for risking her and her father’s safety, wondering aloud if she rejected him because she likes Jin-han better. Hee-soo sets the record straight — her dislike for Myung-ha is his own fault. But Myung-ha holds all the leverage here. He threatens to out her to her father if she continues the Mong-woo masquerade. Then he tells Jin-han that Mong-woo had to leave urgently and indefinitely.

 

While the three stew over what just went down, a political crisis sets off a devastating chain of events. Against Lord Kang’s advice, the king previously sent a spy to Ming to reassure them Joseon was only complying with Qing demands under compulsion. But the spy has been caught, and the only way to placate Qing’s enraged rulers is to surrender the person who commissioned him. The king may have given the order, but Lord Kang carried it out, so he volunteers to surrender himself and bear the punishment on the king’s behalf. Both the king and Jin-han try to talk him out of it. But there isn’t any better option, so Lord Kang is carted away in disgrace — even though pretty much everyone knows he’s innocent.

Hyun-bo seizes the perfect opportunity to get revenge on Mong-woo and Hong-jang (the latter of whom is his own sister, by the way). He presents select facts — the spy and Jin-han visited Hong-jang’s gibang around the same time — and lets Minister Kim draw the obvious but incorrect conclusion. (The actual connection is that the spy assisted Hee-soo in repatriating captives, but this goes undiscovered for now.)

 

Minister Kim rounds up Hong-jang and a bunch of baduk players and tortures them for information on Mong-woo. When Hee-soo gets wind of it, she runs straight over as Mong-woo, intending to prove the others’ innocence. So, naturally, Minister Kim orders she be tortured into testifying against Jin-han. They’re interrupted by Jin-han himself, but Minister Kim has the king’s approval, so the best Jin-han can do in the moment is delay the torture while he talks to the king. As he leaves, he promises to save Mong-woo.

By now, Minister Kim has convinced the king that Jin-han and Lord Kang conspired to deceive and overthrow him. When the king comes at him with a sword, Jin-han wrests it away and turns it back on him. He only does it in self-defense and swears he’s never plotted treason, but raising a weapon against the king kind of nullifies that claim. So he drops to his knees and appeals to their brotherhood — surely there must be some way to prove his devotion. But the king only wants Jin-han dead. Also, he never loved Jin-han; he only pretended to so their mother wouldn’t deny him the throne. Or so he claims.

Jo Jung Suk Becomes A Lonely King With No One To Trust In “Captivating The King”

Jo Jung Suk Becomes A Lonely King With No One To Trust In “Captivating The King”

 

tvN’s drama “Captivating the King” has unveiled new stills ahead of its upcoming episode!

 

Penned by “The Crowned Clown” writer Kim Sun Deok, “Captivating the King” will tell the love story of King Yi In (Jo Jung Suk), a miserable monarch who feels empty inside despite his high position, and Kang Hee Soo (Shin Se Kyung), whose initial plot of revenge against him transforms into an unexpected attraction.

Spoilers

In the previous episode, following the sudden death of Yi In’s elder brother King Yi Sun (Choi Dae Hoon), Yi In ascended to the throne to survive in the treacherous palace where he couldn’t trust anyone. In the process, he resorted to harsh measures, including executing ruthless punishment to suppress political rival Kim Jong Bae (Jo Sung Ha) and cutting ties with his friend Kang Hee Soo (Shin Se Kyung), revealing a cruel side of his character that grips the audience.

 

The newly released stills depict King Yi In’s intense transformation as he becomes enemies with the regents and assumes the role of a ruthless dictator. Draped in royal robes, he now exudes a chilling demeanor, illustrating the loneliness experienced by a ruler navigating power struggles in a palace.

Amid accusations of pushing aside Yi Sun’s son and his own nephew Prince Mun Sung (Hong Joon Woo) to claim the throne, he faces public scrutiny. In one image where he sits alone engrossed in a game of baduk (go), Yi In’s heavy sighs and contemplative silence dominate the scene, underscoring the stark contrast between his harsh king’s exterior and his inner solitude.

Furthermore, other stills capture the presence of Dong Sang Goong (Park Ye Young) beside King Yi In, adding an element of intrigue. Previously summoned as a witness by Yi In amidst suspicions from the regents, Dong Sang Goong’s newfound favor as the keeper of the king’s secret raises questions about her future relationship with him.

Captivating the King: Episodes 5-6

by mistyisles

 

Let the games begin! Back in each other’s orbits, our leads spin tight webs around each other while delicately navigating those spun by their mutual enemies. But when everyone’s playing 20 steps ahead of everyone else, the lines between ally and enemy become blurry indeed.

 
EPISODES 5-6

 

Three years have passed since Lee In became king and Hee-soo escaped. After plunging down a waterfall and being presumed dead, Hee-soo was rescued by her old servants and reunited with CHU DAL-HA (Na Hyun-woo), the spy whose commission and capture triggered the whole debacle in the first place. Dal-ha lost an eye via torture, and he was in love with the late Hong-jang, so for the past three years, he and Hee-soo have been plotting revenge together. They even have a few palace contacts, including PRINCE DEOK-SEONG (Sohn Jong-hak), who’s privileged enough to play baduk with Lee In himself.

Except, Lee In knows Prince Deok-seong is backed by his uncle, Lord Park, and thereby also the QUEEN DOWAGER (Jang Young-nam). After Prince Deok-seong makes the mistake of remarking that Qing’s Prince Rui has stepped aside to let his nephew assume the throne (i.e., he did the opposite of what Lee In did), he gets *mysteriously* murdered. Lee In subsequently warns Lord Park not to plant anyone else in his inner circle.

 

Lord Park and his associates have also been trying to get Myung-ha strung up on various charges of incompetence over the years. They finally convince Lee In to summon him to the palace, but instead of risking yet another failed accusation, Lee In appoints Myung-ha Sixth Royal Secretary. This position has a singular duty: revive the dying peach tree the former king planted while Lee In was in captivity. Many previous sixth secretaries have failed, and Myung-ha will face grave consequences if he can’t save the tree, either.

Finally, Lee In invents a new palace position, which he calls a gidaeryeong. More than a teacher, this person will serve as his personal baduk partner. Thus, they’re selected through a baduk tournament. Seeing Mong-woo’s name on the list of first-day winners, Lee In tries to convince himself it can’t possibly be the Mong-woo he knew. But curiosity wins out, and he attends the second day to see for himself.

 

Only a few finalists remain, and by chance, Hee-soo ends up without a partner for the next round. Normally, this would be counted as an automatic advancement, but Lee In orders her to play against the only other eligible person present: Myung-ha, who has yet to officially assume his new position. Though both Hee-soo and Lee In are visibly shaken by the other’s presence, she tamps down her nerves and wins the game. When Lee In pointedly observes that Myung-ha would have won had he sacrificed a particular stone, Hee-soo disagrees. Just as pointedly, she says there’s always a way to save a cornered stone if you look hard enough — Myung-ha’s fatal mistake here was giving up on the stone too soon. And so was Lee In’s, being the clear implication.

The guards threaten to cut out her tongue for insolence, but Hee-soo doubles down. Baduk is a conversation between equals, so if Lee In is going to punish people for challenging him verbally, he’ll need a new gidaeryeong every time he plays. Both insulted and impressed by her sheer audacity, Lee In lets her keep her tongue — provided she wins and becomes gidaeryeong. And that’s exactly what she does.

 

If the tension between them was thick before, it’s practically suffocating once they’re alone. Having guessed that the “cornered stone” was Hong-jang, Lee In explicitly accuses Mong-woo of plotting revenge. Hee-soo denies it, so he leaves her with a warning: he killed Mong-woo once, and he’ll do it again if he catches her deceiving him or making alliances with other members of the court. But since Mong-woo only plays baduk when a bet is involved, he agrees to grant her one request if she wins. Given the stakes and their respective skills, however, that first day ends in a draw.

In the meantime, Hee-soo approaches Myung-ha. She says, rightly, that he should beg her for forgiveness, but he refuses to apologize for doing what he believed he had to. Instead of getting angry, Hee-soo tries to recruit him to her and Dal-ha’s revenge force, figuring such brazenness means he’ll have no qualms going up against the king. Myung-ha turns her down, so she promises to prove her capability by helping him meet his cousins, the children of the former king.

The highlight of the 7th, 8th, and 9th episodes of the weekend drama ‘Sejak, The Bewitched’, Jo Jung-seok and Shin Se-kyung promise to reunite with Mongwoo after 3 years.. What will happen next?

 

146377_395275_436.jpg

 

tvN's weekend drama <Se-jak, The Bewitched (directed by Nam-guk Jo, Ji-young Jeong, directed by Ji-hyun Park, written by Seon-deok Kim)> is scheduled to air on the 9th (Fri), 10th (Sat), and 11th as a special Lunar New Year special on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Episodes 7, 8, and 9 will be aired on Sundays at 9:20 p.m.

 

The viewer rating for the last 6 episodes was 5.5% (Nielsen Korea). The highest viewership rating was recorded in episode 4, with a viewership rating of 6.0% (Nielsen Korea). The viewership rating for the first episode was 4.0% (Nielsen Korea).

The drama <Sejak, The Bewitched>, which has a total of 16 episodes, is “the capricious contradiction of wanting to live when you love, and wishing to die when you hate!” It is a story about the cruel fate of King Yi-in, who holds a high position but is lowly at heart, and a woman who becomes a spy to overthrow him.

 

The cast includes Jo Jung-seok (playing Lee In), Shin Se-kyung (playing Kang Hee-soo), Lee Shin-young, Park Ye-young, Son Hyun-joo, Cho Sung-ha, Choi Dae-hoon, Kang Hong-seok, Jang Young-nam, Lee Gyu-hoe, Eom Hyo-seop, Yang Kyung-won, Jeong Seok-yong, Baek Seok-gwang, and Go Soo-hee. As each episode progresses, the story becomes more exciting, including drama information, official video, episode information, timeline, characters, broadcast time, related albums (OST), character relationships, as well as several episodes, author, sequel, background, and original work. , the plot and ending, dramas similar to this drama, filming locations and sets, etc. are of great interest to viewers. Actors Jo Jung-seok and Shin Se-kyung keep their promise to ‘see you again on the day when the dream falls’ for the first time in three years. In the last broadcast, the narrative unfolded of a secret struggle for power within the palace to win over Kang Hee-soo (played by Shin Se-kyung), who became King Yi-in's (played by Jo Jeong-seok) Go opponent, raising tensions.

 

In the process, Kang Hee-soo was suspected of revenge by Lee In, and the intense romance between the two people, who read each other's moves as if they were playing baduk, began in earnest, making hearts pound. Next, the two meet for the first time in three years in a drizzly rain. Shin Se-kyung, who had previously overcome Jo Jung-suk's test of not being a backstabber with clever spirit, said, "You are my person. At Jo Jung-seok's words, "I will protect you," my heart sank, but I steeled myself for revenge. Shin Se-kyung, who won her first match against Jo Jung-seok in the past, received Jo Jung-seok's favorite nickname 'Mongwoo' and deeply engraved Jo Jung-seok's promise, "I will see you again here in this place on the day when the moon falls", and looked forward to a precious future together. As promised. Jo Jung-seok's sorrowful eyes, as he looks at Shin Se-kyung with a heavy expression, hints at his instinctive attraction towards Shin Se-kyung, as if the extreme pain he has experienced over the past three years may have been caused by losing Shin Se-kyung.

 

On the other hand, Shin Se-kyung's eyes toward Jo Jung-seok begin to show emotional agitation, drawing attention. After the Sejak incident three years ago, Shin Se-kyung gathered herself together and ran only for revenge, but as soon as she saw Jo Jung-seok appear before her eyes with Mong-woo, the emotions she had been suppressing exploded. The sight of Shin Se-kyung looking at Jo Jung-seok with shaking eyes as if her heart had dropped, and Jo Jung-seok staring at Shin Se-kyung without wavering, fills the viewer's heart with excitement, raising curiosity about what changes will occur in their relationship after the Promised Dream reunion.

 

The production team said, “Starting with today’s 7th episode, the thrilling melodrama tension between Jo Jung-seok and Shin Se-kyung will explode even more with Mongwoo,” adding, “Please look forward to the narrative of these two people, who will become even more entangled in their breathtaking struggle of love and revenge.

Jo Jung Suk And Shin Se Kyung Share A Passionate Kiss In “Captivating The King”

Jo Jung Suk And Shin Se Kyung Share A Passionate Kiss In “Captivating The King”

Feb 10, 2024
by E. Cha
 

tvN’s “Captivating the King” has shared a sneak peek of Jo Jung Suk and Shin Se Kyung’s first kiss!

Penned by “The Crowned Clown” writer Kim Sun Deok, “Captivating the King” tells the love story of King Yi In (Jo Jung Suk), a miserable monarch who feels empty inside despite his high position, and Kang Hee Soo (Shin Se Kyung), whose initial plot of revenge against him transforms into an unexpected attraction.

Spoilers

On the previous episode of “Captivating the King,” Kang Hee Soo nearly had her identity as a woman revealed, but she managed to escape her crisis without being found out. Later, when she pushed Yi In away, he accused her of disliking him and asked if she still blamed him. When Kang Hee Soo denied it, he responded, “Then do you like me? I like you. Mong Woo, I like you.”

In newly released stills from the drama’s next episode, Kang Hee Soo abruptly takes their relationship to the next level by suddenly approaching Yi In and kissing him. At first, Yi In is shocked by her bold advance, but he doesn’t push her away. When they pull apart, Yi In is unable to tear his eyes off her, and she tearfully returns his gaze.

In the next photo, Yi In proves unable to control his growing feelings for Kang Hee Soo as he takes her face in one hand and pulls her in for a passionate kiss.

As Kang Hee Soo is still wearing her male disguise throughout their kiss, it remains to be seen whether Yi In has found out that she is a woman—or whether he still thinks of her as Mong Woo.

“In today’s episode, Kang Hee Soo’s feelings for Yi In, which she has tried hard to suppress for the sake of revenge, will properly explode,” said the drama’s production team. “Please look forward to seeing how romance unfolds between Yi In, whose longing for Mong Woo grows deeper even amidst the rumors about his sexuality, and Kang Hee Soo, who is shaken by her unstoppable feelings.”

The next episode of “Captivating the King” will air on February 10 at 9:20 p.m. KST.

I am glad that the king knows the truth that Mong Woo is a woman. My favorite character in this drama is the Jinhan/The King. While I understand why she was disappointed in the king I don`t feel her revenge at all. She still loves him despite her claming that she wants revenge. I roll my eyes at some scenes in this drama but I like to watch the scene of King and Hee Soo/Mong woo`s romance. Let see how things go from here.

 

 

******

Jo Jung-seok of 'Sejak, The Bewitched', as expected, a melodrama master... The ‘bombing of excitement’ has begun in the home room.

 

658523_993690_127.jpg

 

The romance of Jo Jung-seok, a melodrama master, in 'Sejak, The Bewitched' shook the hearts of viewers.

 

In tvN's 'Sejak, The Bewitched' (written by Kim Seon-deok, directed by Jo Nam-guk) that aired on the 10th, Lee In (Jo Jeong-seok) was unable to hide his attraction to Kang Hee-soo (Shin Se-kyung), and when he found out that Kang Hee-soo was a woman, his suppressed emotions exploded. and announced the start of a full-fledged romance with a passionate kiss.

 

Lee In went out to the street to confirm the rumors of her sodomy with Kang Hee-soo (her romance with men), and she expressed her feelings that she could not hide, capturing Kang Hee-soo's every moment with her eyes. She looks on happily as Kang Hee-su fills her mouth with her rice cake and eats it, and while talking comfortably, she unconsciously reveals her true feelings, saying, "If you were a woman, I would definitely marry you." 

 

The sight of him, who only showed a sensitive and strict side amid sharp political checks in the palace, became infinitely affectionate in front of Kang Hee-soo stimulated a tickling excitement, and Jo Jung-seok expressed his feelings that involuntarily came out with kind eyes and a sneaky smile, making the heart flutter even more. 

 

The strange relationship between Lee In and Kang Hee-soo, which had been close so far, exploded at the end of the drama. Lee In anxiously sets out to search for Kang Hee-su, who has disappeared with her whereabouts unknown, and when she finds Kang Hee-su asleep on the street while drunk, she finds a place for her to rest and lays her down. Lee-in tried to take off the coat so that Kang Hee-soo could rest comfortably, but Kang Hee-soo, who woke up, strongly pushed his hand away. Lee-in, who sensed something was wrong with his excessive reaction, realized that Kang Hee-soo was a woman, and was filled with complex emotions such as anger, confusion, and sadness. The sight of the two people confronting each other added to the tension.

 

Lee In was angry at Kang Hee-soo, who had been hiding her identity, but Kang Hee-soo kissed him, saying it was her "last wish." Lee In paused for a moment at the unexpected action, but then carefully held Kang Hee-soo as if he cherished her and kissed her again, creating a thrilling excitement with strong melodrama chemistry.

 

Lee In followed Kang Hee Soo as she sat down, knelt down and made eye contact with her. They looked at each other deeply and then kissed again. The sight of the two finally touching hearts raised the drama's interest to its peak.

 

Jo Jung-seok showed charisma and fierce acting when depicting his destiny to ascend to the blood-red throne, and when he met Kang Hee-soo again after three years, he expressed his suspicion that she had come to harm him and the longing that he could not hide, making the relationship between the two even more dangerous and fatal. expressed in detail. After finally finding out that Kang Hee-soo, who had been in her heart, was the woman she had been dreaming of, she put on a breathtaking melodramatic mood, maximizing the excitement index in the living room.

'Sejak, The Bewitched' Power game between Jo Jung-seok vs. Lee Gyu-hoe and Shin Se-kyung

 

1707632908_1700613.jpg

 

‘Sejak, The Bewitched’ Shin Se-kyung is arrested by Uigeumbu soldiers and gives a strong shock.

 

The last broadcast of tvN's Saturday-Sunday drama 'Sejak, The Bewitched' caused quite a stir due to sodomy rumors surrounding Lee In (Jo Jeong-seok) and Kang Mong-woo (= Kang Hee-soo, Shin Se-kyung). In particular, if Lee In does not have an heir, Park Jong-hwan (Lee Gyu-hoe), who was concerned that the forces behind Grand Prince Munseong (Choi Ye-chan) would plot a treason, filed an appeal against Dae-ryeong's dismissal, putting Kang Mong-woo in danger. In the end, Lee In, who decided to join Dongsanggung (Park Ye-young) in order to protect Kang Mong-woo, set out to find him when Kang Mong-woo suddenly disappeared, causing tension to soar. Then, at the end of the play, it was discovered that Kang Mong-woo was a woman, and at the same time, Lee In and Kang Hee-soo kissed, confirming their feelings for each other, raising the viewers' heart rates.

 

Among these, ‘Sejak, The Charmed Ones’ steals attention by releasing a shocking still of Kang Mong-woo being arrested by Uigeumbu soldiers ahead of the 9th broadcast. The released still shows a group of Uigeumbu soldiers raiding Kang Mong-woo's residence, creating tension. Kang Mong-woo looks embarrassed as if he was shocked by the tip of the sharp spear pointed at his neck, raising questions about why Kang Mong-woo is in danger of being arrested.

 

Park Jong-hwan has already taken the lead in filing an appeal against Dae Gi-ryeong, who is highly favored by Lee In, considering him to be a thorn in his side. Kang Mong-woo is placed in an imminent situation following Park Jong-hwan's order to pursue him, which can be seen as a bloody warning, foreshadowing an unpredictable development unfolding ahead.

 

Attention is drawn to the conflicting expressions of Lee In and Park Jong-hwan in another still. Amid the anticipated dismissal appeal and subsequent arrest of Kang Mong-woo, there is a contrast between Lee In, who has a sad expression, and Park Jong-hwan, who has a faint smile on his face. Attention is being paid to whether Lee In will be able to protect Kang Mong-woo, who is his expectation and love. In particular, while Park Jong-hwan is manipulating power inside and outside the court by displaying his loyalty to the king, interest is growing in the fierce power game between the two that will begin in earnest surrounding Kang Mong-woo.

 

The production team said, “In episodes 9 and 10, the relationship between Lee In, who discovers that Kang Mong-woo (Kang Hee-soo) is a woman, and Kang Hee-soo, who is shaken by feelings of revenge and love, will further increase the level of immersion in the narrative, so please stay tuned.” Episodes 9 and 10 of ‘Sejak, The Bewitched’ will be broadcast consecutively at 9:20 pm on the 11th.
