Why do you think he is smiling? Because he thought he saved Se Hwa or "here it comes my death, a cynical smile, or "I get to see Se Hwa, one last time before my death".

My interpretation is that KDR was happy that he was able to protect Se hwa and that he died in the arms of the one he loved.  I ended up watching it again on my TV (I usually watch on my tablet while I'm on my laptop typing) and cried again.    Oh, I forgot to add thanks for starting us on episode 13!

LOTBS Ep 13

Each episode in this series seems to get better and better, probably because we're being drawn into the story and are becoming fond of the characters. Although I have to say that I start out being pretty fond of any character LMH plays, and it only gets better from there on. 

HJJ's father has been such a jerk to both his sons, his real son since was young and now his stepson as he ignores him and wants HJJ. He's twisted both his son's lives. Heo Chi-hyun's character, the stepson, is interesting to watch as the series progresses. He is truly between a rock and hard place, given a rejecting father who he adored and villainous mother who he also loves. This is slowly turning him into a torn and tormented soul.

I hated to say goodbye to Dam Ryeong in this episode, he was such a great character. I agree with Carolyn H. I thought he smiled slightly just before he died because he was with her at the end. I love the little subtleties in LMH's acting!

Yes, I also think that he was able to protect Se hwa and that he died in the arms of the one he loved.

When I first watched this episode on SBS (same time as aired in Korea and without subs), too many tears that I couldn't keep watching clearly, I didn't notice that smile. Rewatched this episode with subs on the next day, I really admired this couple's acting, how come they could act like that in the water ??? 
 

Spoiler

I'm the one very easily drop tears when I watch dramas/movies/books, but sometimes, some actors' acting can't touch me to drop any tear at sad scenes. I really dropped many tears when watching Minho's each work. I have 20 episodes of Heirs in my computer, once I opened an episodes and randomly dragged to one point to begin my countless rewatching, that's the scene Kim Tan in Kim Won's office and standing in front of Won's desk, I knew what Tan would say to his brother and my tears dropped immediately even I have not begun to watch. The memory of Minho's acting could make me drop tears.

 

 

By the way, I love love KDR's simple dressed in white on the boat, can't describe how handsome his face is.

Thanks for all your comments!

 

Amusing scene when it's Sim Cheong now getting jealous of her previous self, the way Joon Jae got jealous of Ramyun guy. But of course, Joon Jae is charming enough and rather smooth to convince Sim Cheong that she's prettier and then later pull her under the blanket and wrap his arms around her.

I agree that stepmom is more a villainess than Ma Dae Young. Joon Jae's dad going nearly blind is actually hitting two birds with one stone - it can lead to his death due to accident, same as stepmom's two ex-husbands, and can also make him unable to read his will which was altered in favor of stepmom and stepson.

 

So now, our two lovebirds are on the same page - both are aware of their feelings towards each other, no more guessing and hiding, at least for the both of them. But Nam Doo is noticing those gestures between the two and sure is getting jealous.

When he asked Joon Jae on who he is going to save first when he and Sim Cheong both fall in the water, I thought, Joon Jae should save Nam Doo since Sim Cheong could very well save her mermaid self. But Joon Jae's response is a lot funnier - Sim Cheong would save Nam Doo herself and he doesn't want that. Heh.

 

Prosecutor Joon Jae is at it again! Being even more knowledgeable than the real cops, he can really easily pass as a prosecutor; add to that some bossing around and the cops actually following his orders!

Ah poor Shi Ah. When karma bites her in the a$$. The mother-in-law she intends to be kind to is the same ajumonni she's been harsh to all this time. Add to that, ajumonni is now close to her rival, Sim Cheong.

There goes her brownie points with Joon Jae's mom.

 

Chi Hyun might be on the fence on his love for a rejecting father and a villainous mother, but hearing his father say Joon Jae's name seems to be a defining moment for him, as he burns down all his photos with him.

Scene where Sim Cheong tells Joon Jae that it's actually good that Se Hwa was his first love and not her, otherwise, they wouldn't have ended up together - it's only now that I noticed that this scene is somewhat foreboding of Se Hwa and Dam Ryeong's fate. I noticed that when background music suddenly played at Sim Cheong's mention of "that a man's first love does not come true." There was also a sudden sadness on Joon Jae's face at that point.

So he goes to the psychiatrist for some hypnosis to see how his dream ends - how the love story of Dam Ryeong and Se Hwa turns out (or ends).

Seeing the lantern lights, Dam Ryeong asks for his boat to be turned around, as this means trouble for Se Hwa. Just as he warned Joon Jae to "protect the woman from the dangerous one," he does so too, as he gallantly fights against Lord Yang's men to protect Se Hwa...

even up to his last breath. I'd like to believe that his slight smile was due to his relief that he was able to protect his love, and also to reassure her that he gladly did this sacrifice for her.

I may have been devastated with this early death of Dam Ryeong, even if I already saw this coming, as was revealed through Joon Jae in an earlier episode. As you may know, I've been drawn into the character of Dam Ryeong. But the poetry of all these lies in the tragic end of Dam Ryeong and Se Hwa. Their lives may have ended abruptly, but even as teenagers, he's already promised her that in the next life, they will be reborn as themselves, and will remember their story. With this tragic end, and Dam Ryeong's words, "everything repeats itself; the fate in this world is continuing in that world," the story now focuses on Joon Jae, on how he would be able to overcome fate, and fulfill his promise to Sim Cheong: "nothing will repeat itself. Whatever happened before, will not happen this time. I will make it so."

Such a dramatic episode; I see why it's @CarolynH's favorite one. May I also add the picturesque sea and underwater scenes of the Joseon period - the visuals of the scenes add more drama and are simply breathtaking.

LMH in LOTBS episode 13:

 

Thanks for ALL the comments!!  I agree that it keeps getting better and better.  

 

This is the episode where you can hear in LMH's voice that he has a cold.  :( 

I'm really hoping that it will be possible for Korea to do more pre-produced shows, so there won't be time constraints and everyone can stay healthy.

Yes!  This is one of my favorite looks--simple and gorgeous--and favorite scenes.

Well said!  Dam-ryung is clever.  He has figured out what is going on with their repeated story, has left clues for Joon-jae, and is confident in sacrificing himself for a different future.  After he dies, Se-hwa pulls the spear through herself, ready to be reborn, trusting that they will be together again.

 

 

It's fun to see the parallels of the two time periods.  One question that comes up in this episode is:

"What did Dam-ryung do to save his father?"

"Is there a parallel with Joon-jae and Detective Hong?"

OMG these have got to be the most gorgeous set of photos of him ever. He seems to be getting more and more handsome. And his personality shines through. I love his face when he tries the drink! How good is he going to look in the new drama.

He does look very handsome in those pictures. He gets more handsome with age.

I started the beginning of LBS episode 14 and now I can't remember why Se hwa can't remember the past.  Does she remember in a later episode?

I don't think Sim Cheong ever remembered her past or Se Hwa dreamt of the future. Perhaps mermaids can't dream. :D

South Korean stars have filmed many difficult stunts by themselves

 

Lee Min Ho: In City Hunter, Lee Min Ho has worked hard to be able to do many fight scenes without using stunt doubles. Despite having a number of injuries on set because of the difficulty of the action scenes, he did not give up. The star born in 1987 has devoted the audience to many perfect and beautiful fight scenes.

Finally there's a story about Lee Min Ho in the training center posted on DC LMH Gallery.

 

English translation is according to Chinese translation by 何夕.

 

 

My friend was injured his shoulder when playing football,

so he went to the same training center with LMH, but he and LMH were not on the same floor.

The trainee lined up a long queue to get LMH's autograph.
They also followed him at rest times.

That's self-evidence of LMH's friendliness. 

My friend didn't went to get his autograph because the long waiting line.

But he looked at Minho at the distant place, Minho is very tall with a small face.

Thanks for this, @gtLmh0622

The power that he has; even men follow him and line up just to get his autograph! B)
